Loved our stay here”
We absolutely loved our stay here It has everything you need for a relaxing holiday our only complaint was we only had two nights there. The staff were fantastic especially lisbeth on reception who helped us upgrade our room at short notice. The pool was great Food was lovely with a large choose and very reasonably priced. Breakfast which was was included offered many options. It has a lovely sandy beach in front of hotel. It has everything you need for a relaxing holiday would happily go back. The Delux sea view room we stayed in was big airey with a great view, shower and bath and loads of wardrobe & cupboard space. Happily stay there again
Thank you Stuart for the awesome review and great score. We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay with us and i will sure mention this review to Lizbeth. It was a pleasure to have you as our guest. Hope to see you again in the future! Warm regards, Linaw Staff
We had a really wonderful stay at this beautiful resort. Very private and quite. The rooms are huge with very comfortable beds and everything needed for a lovely nights sleep. The staff were extremely friendly and the food at the Pearl Restaurant is really first class. Great range of food selection and 5 pages on the menu of local and imported wines. The Christmas buffet was one of the best i have ever had and great selection. I would most definitely recommend Linaw Resort! We will be back!!
Quiet place to rest”
This resort is a great choice for families who want to rest and bond among themselves. Not a choice for yuppies who want to party and hang out. The food was delicious although it took a long while to prepare. We solved that problem by ordering ahead of time. This is close to the take off point for a trip to Balicasag Island. Easy to book a Day tour in Panglao or Tagbilaran. There is a game room where residents can play table tennis, foosball, billards and darts for free. You have to take a tricycle to go to the party places at Alona beach.
The restaurant is excellent The staff is very accommodating!!
The reception is not 24 hours open. So we checked out and handed the key and the payment for minibar to the security. The room is clean and sustainable. But the air con is not really working. So glad that we have big balcony and windows for the breeze from the sea. I would totally recommend the food in the hotel. The breakfast is really tasty and with great service. I have heard that they have great dinner with reasonable price. Unfortunately we missed the dinner time. The beach of the resort is not suitable for swimming. But they have beautiful pool. In general, we had 2 relaxing nights there.
You can still swim around if you do not mind the seaweed, restaurant is very good. Best part is secluded location plus island hopping trip is just outside. We stayed four nights, and we had one of our best holiday trip ever.
Could be better”
I think that the price could be better for that type of room that we have. Our room has got doors next to the bed to the other rooms, it means that you hear everything. Good thing is, that the room is big. We came from Cebu to our room in the evening and a/c was turn on on 16°C. The room was so cold that I have a sore throw after we leave. Room was clean, food in the restaurant was delicious. I dont like the beach there. Personal was kind.
Really enjoyed our stay here. The rooms were very spacious, pool area very nice. What stood out the most was the staff all of them were friendly and went above and beyond. Best resort we stayed in the whole of Philippines. Food was great and very good value for money. Games room was great especially on a rainy day.
Secluded spot in Panglao”
The location is not the best, but it offers privacy and quiet if that is what you are looking for. Facilities are good and staff were great! The beach front is a shared area with other resorts nearby. However, the beach itself is not ideal -- it is muddy not sandy and has a lot of sea grass with many small boats docked. Room is excellent with lots of space and has a mini kitchen for you to use. Best for small groups or family outing :)
Would definitely go back there ”
My partner and I celebrated her birthday at the resort. The staff was kind enough to prepare a birthday surprise for ny girl. Thank you for that! I love the room, it's so clean and comfy. The ambience of the place is very peaceful and pool was clean and so refreshing. The staff was friendly and accommodating. I would definitely go back here with friends and family. Thanks Linaw for making my girl's day extra special! :)
Nice place to rest and relax. ”
An unassuming place that surprises you on how good it is. Its a perfect jump off point to discover the rest of the island and Bohol. Facilities are homey and the staff provides that 'extra touch' that makes one stay memorable. The pool is a good counter to the beach which unfortunately is not high enough for swimming and too crowded with boats.
More like a 5 Star hotel ”
We stayed at Linaw in late October / early November, visiting from the UK. It exceeded our expectations. The staff are super friendly, helpful and welcoming and the restaurant is incredible and attracts lots of visitors outside of the hotel also. The infinity pool is amazing and we watched the sunset over the ocean every evening. The bar serves every drink imaginable and the rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. The hotel also organised island hopping and a Bohol tour for us which removed our stress. We feel Linaw is a hidden gem and will definitely stay again!
Comfortable but room condition was not so good.”
We stayed at "Apartment" type room (Family room), but it was too old and dust on the everywhere. Also we saw a cockroach at the kitchen,, and there was several ants on the bed.. And the massage service provided in bad manner, she was using phone continuosly while massage service, My parents could not compaint to her at the moment by language problem. But we enjoyed pool and food.. And obviously the view was nice. Also the staff was very friendly, Anyhow our family spend beautiful time in the resort. I would like to recommended to hotel to proceed remodeling of the room. Thank you~
Away from the bustle of Alona ”
Stunning small hotel with great service and the restaurant had an extensive range of food all of which was of the highest quality and excellent value for money. Don’t expect a great beach because it isn’t but everything else is first class. Very pleased we chose this hotel and will certainly return
Beatiful sea view, great sunset and nice private swimming pool. The cons are that is very very far from Alona, where are located all the shops, restaurants...etc, Linaw is very pleasant and relaxing hotel to disconnect from big cities, and i recommend it for couples who want relax and do nothing. If you like to enjoy night, coming back to hotel is long way. The beach in front of the hotel is not good for swimming. Hotel restaurant and staff are amazing.
Very nice location less people. Beach is not good but the place and restaurant compensates for it.”
This is value for money. As in! The restaurant is really gooooood.
Thank you Judith for you honest review. We are happy you liked our resort, location and mostly our restaurant. We will try to make our beach more clean and enjoyable. We hope to see you again in the future! Warm regards, Linaw Staff
Lovely Sea view hotel”
We had a really wonderful stay. The room was amazing - comfortable, cozy, large, clean. The location was also great - close to the Pearl restaurant and the dive centre next door (as good as on the same property) We couldn't have asked for more!
Wonderful stay at Linaw”
This is a lovely tranquil gem of a hotel. The rooms are clean and basic, the pool is lovely and the sunsets are fantastic! The food in the hotel restaurant was probably the best we have had in the Philippines! The hotel is about 5-10 minutes by tuc tuc bike from Alona which suited us as we were quite happy staying away from that tourist trap! Staff were FANTASTIC!! Do a trip to see the dolphins and if you can handle the boat ride go and see the whale sharks - amazing experience. Thanks for a lovely stay!
Super nice and isolated place. All the staff, the owner and especially Jefferson in the kitchen took super good care off us. The rooms were nice, and the food was excellent. We will for sure be back:-) Michael Falcon
For vacationers who prefer tranquility and solitude”
The resort was nice, albeit smaller than what I expected it to be. It was a bit secluded and far from Alona beach where the happenings are. If you prefer peace and quiet, this should be the resort for you. My parents liked the place very much as it felt more like a tranquil home by the sea. We stayed at Apartment A and were quite happy with the facilities. The place was clean, and the sheets were spotless. It was well-kept and their kitchen was fully functional, except for the range hood which was causing quite a racket when we turned it on. Mother said the range hood needs some cleaning on the inside. The food was generally okay, but the quality is not consistent. The ampalaya dish was really good, although a bit pricey. Their fresh juices were really from fresh fruits. However, their pineapple pie was far from palatable and did not taste at all like pineapple pie. We were wondering why it was smothered with whipped cream, until we tasted the pie and found it horrendous. We only had one bite, and that's it. The rest of the food that we ordered were okay. The staff was friendly and accommodating. They were all polite and attentive. This is their excellent point, for me.
