very accessible and peaceful place.”
I would highly recommend this place,very convenient specially travelling with kids.The staffs are very accomodating,friendly,meet all your needs.A very clean organized and safe place with a cozy pool a few steps as we stayed in one of the bungalows.Accessible if one has to find restaurant or a grocery store ,not that far just take a tricycle or just a walk distance little dark by night but otherwise safe and fine.Laundry can be litt expensive but worth it and fast very clean.Little defects with appliances will be fixed immediately.Love the place just like a home.
Living room, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom. You will have everything you need here. Staff were helpful, daily cleaning. Kitchenette and some furniture look old and dirty. Water pressure was not good. If you are going to spend a lot of time at the beach, I would not recommend this place because it is around 15 minutes walk away and walking under the burning sun a few times a day is really hard. Tuk-tuk prices from the harbour to the hotel is 350 pesos and from hotel to Alona Beach area is 50 pesos. You can rent a scooter for 400 pesos a day. There is a 7/11 at the Alona Beach area. Overall this hotel is really good, especially if you compare it to other places, except its location.
Our stay was perfect. Nothing to fault. We stayed in an executive apartment, with its own secluded swimming pool and sun beds adjacent. The apartment was very spacious, with 2 double bedrooms, kitchen and dining area, large and comfortable lounge, separate toilet and shower. The aircon is very effective, the beds comfortable, WiFi fully functional and TV with many national and international channels. Of particular note is how quiet is the resort, yet quite close by Alona with all it has to offer by way of the beach, cafes, restaurants, bars, shops, diving schools etc. The new Bohol airport is close, only some 6-8 minutes away by taxi and very accessible. It’s a great package at Olivia, including warm, friendly and helpful staff, and the price is right.
Well maintained property. Highly recommended.”
After a long and tiring day (since our ferry was delayed), we almost checked-in around 10:45 PM. When we entered the property, the security guard took us inside our room and WOAH, the room was simply amazing. Air-con was left open in advance, the bed was made properly and small necessities (coffee maker, water bottles, utensils) were already there. Special mention for the lady at reception who was very helpful. She booked our return ferry tickets and was very cooperative when we requested her to have an extended check out at 2:00 PM (versus the usual check out time of 12 Noon). All in all, I had a wonderful and comfortable stay at Olivia and will definitely look forward to stay there again upon my next visit to Bohol.
Fantastic. We will defintely go again.”
It was just great. We cannot find fault, and will recommend to others without hesitation. Its got great facilities, lovely pool, very attentive and helpful staff, modern and clean, quiet with beach and nightlife close but not too close to be noisy. All local amenities are within a short walk, or Olivia has hotel transport readily available.
Nice and quite area in Panglao”
Not on the beach side but only 10 minutes walk to the beach. It’s pretty nice area. It’s good for kids family live. But the room is not so clean and the shower was very disappointed for pressure, just so little water coming out. And my room have been found 3 cockroaches and the are like thumb size. If you are afraid of those small animals then I’m not recommend you choose here.
Well maintained ”
Cozy place. We always had the pool to ourselves. Clean and well maintained. They just need to replace the water dispenser as it was already broken. The water endlessly dripped so we didn't really get the chance to drink from it. It was only 50bucks so no biggie. Could still improve though. Waste of water. Overall, a good experience. Staff very friendly.
Perfect place for small children”
Amazing place to stay. I wish I had known how close it is to the beach...we would have stayed there more than one night instead of renting a holiday villa. Only a 5 minute trike ride from alona beach, right next to restaurants, etc. staff was very helpful, the pool was perfect for my two year old, and they let us leave our bags there until our next place was ready.
Clean and comforable ”
Since the baby arrived, having a kitchen is a top priority. At first, I was hesitant to even browse at the webpage of this hotel/serviced apartment because it is rated as 2 star. I had an unpleasant experience the first time I stayed at a 3 star hotel in Boracay; cleanliness is below par. Since then I always pick a 4 or 5 star hotel for accommodation. But since a kitchenette is a must have, I checked out Olivia and I was surprise with the amount of its positive feedbacks. So we decided to give it a try and we are so glad we did! We stayed at their executive apartment; it is huge and clean. It is not fancy but it is comfortable. The kitchenette is adequate for preparing quick meals. Location to Alona beach is just a few minutes tuk-tuk ride away; it costs 50 pesos. More so, the staff are very helpful. I would like to commend Oliver for taking extra mile to meet our requests. Next time we go to Panglao, we will stay here again.
What a Gem of a Resort”
Olivia Resort is a gem; everything is super. The location is excellent being away from the noisy Alona Beach but close enough to walk there. The resort operate a shuttle bus service to take guests to and from the beach, or indeed to any other location on the Island. I cannot praise the staff highly enough. They are all friendly and as helpful as possible. In particular Oliver is super, and was a great help to me personally with running me around, arranging ferry tickets and generally with good advice. This is a modern and recently built resort, well planned, beautiful gardens, pretty painted buildings and a great leisure style swimming pool with sunloungers and a covered patio area with table and chairs. All accommodation is spacious, with effective aircon, has all mod cons, a great well equipped kitchen for self catering, extremely clean and tidy. The beds are comfortable and I slept well, especially as it is so quiet at night. I particularly enjoyed to stay in the very well appointed Executive Apartments. Clearly management are keen to offer a great holiday experience here, with the Resort well maintained, and a convenient reception office for enquiries, guidance and service. I think the official rating understates Olivia Resort, and I for one will make it my Resort of choice when I return to Bohol.
Olivia resort is excellently maintained, looks brand new. The rooms are comfortable with decent furniture. The only downside of our stay was the charge for extra person staying in the room, even if no extra bed is required - 1000peso per person (Considering there are other hotels charging 999 peso per night for 2 people and including motorbike). Olivia resort had security guard at the entrance, and CCTV throughout the property. Definitely worth staying at!
Nice villa in a good location. Value for money”
We stayed here for two nights. It's was nice and quiet. Good location. Only bad thing was, there is a shared toilet/shower which wasn't so clean. Not attached to the room. We didn't kno about this until we got there. But it was manageable n value for money.
A place to call it a home away from home :-)”
It was really good, the staff were friendly and attentive. The facilities are still new and clean. We were self catering and I'm happy with the kitchen utensils provided. Just be mindful not to leave any food in the kitchen or the ants might find them. Overall, my family enjoyed our stay, keep up the good work!
Vannessa was excellent to us. she made sure we had a perfect stay to us. Good job and to her manager as well..
Excellent stay! I will come back! Value for money!”
Very very excellent!!! I would definitely come back!
Niceeeee people are here!”
Value for family”
2 bedrooms apartment, with cooking room and facility, we purchased foods from ICM then cooked by ourselves. Swimming pool is beside our room, my kid loves it! A bit long way to Alona beach, ~15 mins by walking, the path road is not good, as well as trafic fee is a little too much expensive.
The hotel is nice and good place to stay. Its ideal for family. The internet is slow and toilet and bath is shared. Everytime we use the toilet theres always on que. Ants is everywhere so dont leave ur food open. No shampoo.and no hair dryer.
This hotel/apartment sucks!”
1. Stinky bathroom. Both of the bathrooms in our 2-bedroom unit are so stinky that when you open its doors, you would have to cover your nose with a towel and endure the foul odor while you are using it. You have to keep the doors closed if you don't want the extremely foul odor invade the entire unit! 2. A lot of flies and bugs. Do not make a mistake of opening any of the windows and your unit will be filled with huge flies, mosquitoes and bugs. 3. Totally misinformed. This hotel claims in the internet that they are just 5 minutes walk away to the beach. The truth is 20 minutes! You have to hire a "trike" (a 3-wheeled local transportation that seats 4-5 people) which charges from Php30-50 one way, and the worst is you have to wait for almost an hour, and you have to endure the bumpy road that leaves pain onyour ass! 4. No restaurant. You have to walk 15-20 minutes to eat! and it means spending more time and money for the trike! 5. Too expensive, not worth it! You can find a more spacious and cozy serviced apartments/hotels nearby which are nearer the beach for half the price. If you want to have a hassle-free and enjoyable stay in Bohol, do not ever make a mistake of booking in this hotel/apartment, PLEASE! This place sucks!
As with all hotels in Philippines a little overpriced. The unit is nice and pool is sufficient. Need a bike as it is a long walk from restaurants and beach. Staff were outstanding
