Clean rooms with good space and a nice quiet location”
Quieter location away from alona beach. But a very nice beach nearby with good dive centers and nice views. Everything is close and easy to get too. Rooms were clean. No wifi in the room but was easy to get at the restaurant and the hotel lobby.
The best way to escape the busy city and crowded beaches..”
The place is a little bit far from alona but it has its own beach , danao. Plus it has its pool where u can also dive in. It is deep. The restaurant serves delicious meals. I like the Bam-I as well as Bangus. Very yum! You can find instagramable sceneries here..
Good place at quiet beach”
We liked our stay here. We rented a bike via de hotel and also booked the island hopping trip here. They arranged transportation from there directly to Oslob. Breakfast was OK, wifi was good. Would come back here if we would stay in Panglao.
The staff was lovely! This was just far enough away from the craziness of Alona Beach. We had a great room with private bathroom and hot water! Steps away from a nice, clean pool. Steps from the restaurant with brewed coffee. Right on the beach. We booked a very cheap private boat trip for island hopping and snorkeling. Lots of restaurants within a short skooter ride. I was sad to leave!
I liked that it was pretty relaxing and it had a beach front that is a lot quieter than the popular beaches in Alona. I wish the windows had screens to protect us from the mosquitoes. We would have loved to open the windows and felt the ocean breeze.
Too far from most tourist spot”
Water in washroom slowly runs or not running at all. Slow wifi connection. Far from tourist attractions like public beaches and restaurants. Will cost you minimum “150 pesos” for one way transportation. Low tide during day. So no beach swimming. Swimming pool is clean and surrounding is relaxing and beautiful.
Older style resort on the beach”
Older style resort, on the beach, has place to eat on site, but other option nearby. Rooms are basic, older kind of air-con, staff are generally helpful, and reception can book transport and other things. Swimming pool is nice and deep. Breakfast a little basic. Has a dive operation on site.
A pretty small resort away from the noise of Alona Beach.”
Really impressed with this well maintained and manicured resort. Nice quiet location with a nice beach view, pleasant common areas and a pool. Rooms are comfortable and cleaned daily. About 6 minutes to Alona Beach by scooter. Recommend going to the Pearl Restaurant across the road to even to just see the best sunsets on the island. Will definitely go back and highly recommended.
Quiet and relaxing away from Alona”
Nice quiet beach and big pool and decent food but needs more items on the menu, smaller rooms need repair, drains in sink and showers need to be cleared and repaired, at least we had hot water in both our rooms
We enjoyed our stay at Panglao Tropical Villas , Nice ambiance , value for money and very accomodating staff ,Thank you so much Judelyn Front Desk Staff for assisting us and give us nice room for our anniversary celebration and my birthday celebration aswell,and Rene our driver,tour guide .. Hope to see you on our next vacation .. God Bless :)
Just quiet.....in a land far far away .......”
Our resident driver Rene is a awesome. From pick up at the Tagbilaran Seaport to our countryside trip and to the resort. He very entertaining. He know when to open and closes his mouth to let us enjoy the scenery. He is very patient. If there is one reason to go back to panglao it is because of him....He can recommend places, eats, bars everything and anything about panglao and tagbilaran. NOW for the resort. Price of Food is not reasonable. When we went inside the our room (which bigger than I expected, thank you) we already have a visitor inside the bathroom. The night after it was different visitor so we have to borrow an insect killer. The resort is far from the main road. But very quiet, peaceful. Just too far from alona beach which is okay. I can recommend to friends who are more of reclusive type. Not good for part goers or wanted a different beach life. Transpor from the resort to Tagbilaran offered by this resort is Php 600.00 + 4% if you charge it to credit card.
Enjoyed my stay, I will be back.”
The place is a little bit far but it was worth the trip. Very peaceful and good for relaxing. Clean room. Fast wifi. Pool was just infront of the room! The only problem was the food if they can improve it a little bit. I will stay here again!
Quiet Beachfront and Friendly Staff”
It's about 2.2km away from Panglao town center. It's great if you can ride a scooter / motorbike and just rent it while your stay. The resort has a beach front and is usually quiet unlike Alona Beach. The staff are very accommodating and helpful in our inquiries regarding tours and transportation.
Relaxing and scenic ”
We we're disappointed to find out the beach was unswimmable but the pool made up for it. During lowtides in the afternoon, I encourage you to explore the swamp as you will see different kinds of sea water creatures. Our Villa was tastefully decorated too. Air-conditioning took awhile to cool. Eventhough it was on an isolated area, their restaurant had a wide variety on their menu. Try their squid sisig, it's fantastic! We will definitely be coming back!
Nice Isolated spot”
We stayed here for a week. It was great for our son because they have a really nice pool. There is a kids section as well a nice adult pool (2m+ deep!). The staff were really helpful and friendly and we loved the environment. Our villa was very nice though the AC units were very old fashioned and the kitchen was mid renovation (we were early for the season). A few things to keep in mind when you deciding if you want to stay here: It is not a high end resort. It is nice for the price but it is not as groomed as some other places on the island. The food is fine for the price but it is not luxury fare. It is isolated. Alona beach is 5-10 min drive away and nearby there is really only Leneo Resort nearby to walk to. That said Leneo has great food and is only a bit more expensive than here. The beach is very shallow. It has a beautiful view but it is not good for swimming off of. Keep in mind Alona isn't great either though because of all the boat traffic. For Diving go to Equation diving just past Leneo on the beach (to your right) Carole and her crew were great and was also giving better rates on some of the tours available for the island. All in all we were very happy with our time here and would recommend it to anyone not requiring the full resort experience.
Our stay went good. The room has value for money. They have nice staff. The beach is not good for swimming. They offered us sea tour but their boat is not in condition which stopped 3 times while we are in the middle of the sea.
bohol little nest..”
we had a great time in Panglao, the weather was mostly good, other than a little Typhoon.The staff is what we will remember the best about Tropical Villa's, very helpfull...the nice cook, and specially Ileen, very witty and funny young girl..thanks to make our stay enjoyable...we love it!! the beach isnt soo great but we swim mainly in the swimming pool,you can rent a motorcycle to go to the other beach where there is a "Buzz Cafee Restaurant" great food, not expensive..
Peaceful Place to stay”
Their service is great. They help us in everything we need - even contacting a tricycle for us to visit Alona Beach. They have a great room for a small family like us - nice pool. Though the beach is not good to swim because of the sea grass like.
We thought this place was great!”
we love this place and plan to go back again. it has the natural beauty of the philippine landscape, not fake like some of the bigger hotels. the employees were great too very friendly and helpful. food was great. really nice layout with a great private beach. nice pool area too. room rate was the lowest in area but well worth more than what we paid. hotel is secluded and "off the road" so privacy and quietness was a plus.
