        Great, clean & friendly”
        Stayed 5 nights. Very clean hotel, friendly staff who helped us w. Bookings etc etc A bit ”far” from the beach(approx1,5km) but they provide a free shuttle bus every 30 min. I recommend renting a motorbike and go to dumaluan beach instead of Alona though. . Would recommend this hotel to anyone!

        Great choice”
        It's not in the middle of the town, you usually take a van from the hotel to the beach (it takes 5 minutes). You can also go walking, it can take around 15-20 minutes. The place is really nice with clean and nice rooms. For us the swimming pool was a plus, after all day around under the sun. Food was also good and staff very friendly and helpful.

        Our stay in SOGPR was superb! Their staff are all very attentive, friendly and nice. The rooms are so clean, smelled nice, and toiletries are complete. The pools are amazing. My son had fun in the kiddie pool and me and my husband in the jacuzzi. Good food and price is reasonable! I love the fact that we can just charge our food orders in the room so that I didn’t have to bring my wallet everytime. Wifi is great too, they have several wifi routers in the area, so there is no area that has a weak signal. The free shuttle to and from Alona Beach is a big plus!!!! Because of the standards that they have set, I was disappointed to the next resort (Dumaluan Beach Resort 2) we checked in to afterwards

        Away from the crowded beach of Alona but still close enough to enjoy the nightlife”
        Truly enjoyed our stay in Scent of Green Papaya. Service is really great and so is the room. There’s a shuttle every 30 minutes to and from the beach but make sure to tell them you’re riding the shuttle so they can inform you once the shuttle is departing. I hope the bar would open a bit longer though. The bar closes at 11pm so if you want to drink all night in your room, make sure to buy the drinks ahead of time since the convenience store is a bit far from the resort.

        Very good”
        Let me just share the pros and cons in staying at the resort. Cons: - It’s a loooong walk to the beach. If you’re not used to walk 10 mins under the heat in an unpaved road, you may consider staying at this resort. They do have a free shuttle every 30 mins though. - Their shuttle service as mentioned above has a trip every 30 mins going to Alona and every 10th and 40th mins of the hour going back to the resort but the driver don’t always stick to the schedule. One night, we rushed to the pick up area at Alona exactly 10:10pm but the shuttle already left! We have no choice but to ride a tricycle back to the hotel for 100 pesos since we’re already tired and sleepy. - The road going to the hotel is a small unpaved alley. If you’re allergic to dust or has asthma, go somewhere else. They don’t even bother to clean the dusty seats before letting guests ride the shuttle. - On our last night, we found THUMBTACKS at the pool! Good thing nobody got hurt! - The water on the bathroom is salty. One of the showerheads was rusty (due to saltwater) and wasn’t working. They also don’t have a bidet so we requested for a dipper (tabo). - Limited breakfast set. They only have 5 choices if I remember it correctly. Pros: - We love the ambiance of the resort! It was very peaceful and quiet. - Their food is delicious! - While their breakfast selection is limited, it tasted good and very filling. - We love the fact that their pool water is warm! (But they use saltwater as well.) - The staff are very friendly and accommodating (except for the driver). We called the hotel regarding the shuttle incident and we felt the driver got mad at us or something with the way he drives when we’re the only passenger. Overall, we enjoyed our stay. The price is just right. However, due to location I may find some other resort/hotel next time we go to Bohol.

        Great place to stay if you don’t mind waking up on the beach!”
        It’s a great place to stay. Not beach front, but the shuttle is only 5 mins from Alona beach. Staff are helpful and can accomodate most requests. It’s well worth the price...which is not much compared to other places. It’s the perfect place if you’re not worried about being beach front and we even had a Korean TV star staying there too!

        It was about a 10-15 minute walk to Alona Beach, but there is always the option to take the shuttle which is available every 30 minutes. Our room was cleaned daily, and they replace towels every day. Food at the restaurant was a bit pricey but very good. Wifi connection was very reliable. The staff is awesome! Overall, we had a wonderful time!

        Hidden Gem...highly recommend!!”
        Booked on Agoda website and stayed four nights. We arranged the 600 PHP 30-minute ride from the airport prior to arriving with the resort staff which glad we did and as we did on the return trip to the ferry port. As mentioned, hotel is off the beaten path and in good location away from the noisy Alona Beach. Check in was easy...Fast and quick shuttle that leaves hotel on the hour and half hour and returns on the 10 or 40 minutes from Alona Beach drop-off/pick-up area. Room was spacious with large bed, 4 pillows, sound-proof room as you did not hear the other guests next door. Finally, a sincere SALAMAT to the whole SOGPR staff, Jeamen, GIA, MJ and Michael and all the great staff workers who were very helpful and friendly as is the Filipino way. Salamat sa hindi ko malilimutang at romantikong bakasyon!!

        Great gem a little walk away from Alona beach”
        This hotel is a great find at a great price. It is clean, large rooms, beautiful (especially with the pool), and peaceful as it is a little walk away from Alona beach and the tourist crowds. The staff is also friendly and nice and breakfast is delicious! The one downside to consider is that it is about a 10-15 min walk from Alona beach, which I did not mind. The two streets that lead up to the hotel are dark and dirt roads with no lights at night, but I felt completely safe (I am a 31 year old female traveler). The hotel does also offer a shuttle between the hotel and Alona beach every 30 minutes.

        The resort is cozy, extremely quiet but I feel safe. The internet was a bit slow, the food is good but hopefully they can add up to the menu choices. The staffs are friendly, the pool is clean. There's a free shuttle, twice every hour going to the main beach. We slept well so it means we had a good stay :)

        This place is worth every peso, staff as so accommodating and rooms are really big and clean. The free breakfast was really nice, but just a suggestion with the regular food menu, should add more choices and put Filipino cuisines to offer foreign guess like my hubbie. But definitely will come back and recommend this place with my family and friends
