        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 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.

        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!

        Pros: ○The stuffs there were really nice and helpful. ○The courtyard of the resort is not that big but very pieceful and suitable for you to relax yourself. ○The swimming pool is very lovely. ○The shuttle bus between the resort and Alona beach is definitely useful. Cons: ○The road from the main street to the resort is in a mess and not suitable for guests to walk. ○A little bit far from the beach. ○There were some ants in my balcony.

        Breakfast is the worst out of the 5 days I stayed in Bohol. Could be we had to leave in the early morning, 6 am, and that is what they can come up with, horrible dried american cheese sandwich with canned juice and NOT fresh/ partially rotten banana.

        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.

        True experience!”
        The resort is remote, if you want to go to Alona Beach by walking it might take you 20 mins, and there is a long muddy path with no light and you must go through, it could be dangerous after 9 pm if you’re alone, specially the ladies or couples. You will have to give the key of your room to the lobby every time you leave the resort, and we noticed they never verify the people who asked for room keys if truly staying there, as long as you name a room number, they’ll give you the key. Some rooms might have ant issue. Ours is b2. Kids are not suggested to stay in this one, because the bed holders’ corners are really sharp. Unpleasant thing 1 : There is no extra bed! We had 2 rooms, we booked the first one on Agoda and paid 2325PHP for an extra bed, we got the second one while we arrived, but our first one doesn’t have an extra bed, two rooms are exactly the same. So literally we paid 2325PHP just for the third person a ticket to get in a room which is designed to stay 3 adults. We paid for 3 beds. Unpleasant things 2 : One of the waitresses is extremely mean. We got our second room while we arrived, but they were short of rooms so our second room was one day less than our plan. We sincerely asked if they will let us all stay together for the last night cuz we wont be at our room most of the time and leaving like 6 am when we check out, if not we will just get another hotel and stayed separately the last night. The waitress who helped us checked in is kind and nice, she wanted to save us from trouble, she considered a long time and agreed, but she did not mention we will be charged. The morning we checked out, another mean waitress suddenly asked for 1200PHP. It’s not our fault that they did not informed us the first night we checked in, if they would’ve told us we’d just get to another hotel the last night instead of staying all together. We don’t care the money but they can’t tell two whole different stories when we checked in and out, changing the deal as they
