Great stay at Papaya Resort! Beautifully decorated rooms looking over the fabulous pool and well kept grounds. Located up a narrow road, tucked away from all the noise of Alona but close enough to walk back and forth to the beach. The staff are amazing and friendly always on hand. Free breakfast which is just fabulous, but the food at the resort is delicious, often nicer than on Alona Beach. Highly recommended resort fir the value.
Lovely stay ”
We had a wonderful time at Green Papaya. The staff are very friendly and the rooms authentic and good value for money. It’s about a 10-15 minute walk to the beach, otherwise they offer a free shuttle. Would recommend :)
Perfect and very clean place to rest”
We were suprised how pleasant and nice this hotel was. Starting with very kind and friendly staff, delicious welcome drink, through very clean room, and finally a great swimming pool. Hotel serves delicious breakfast, has selection of drinks at the bar. Location is very convenient as well, with walking distance to main road, Alona Beach, transportation and shops. There's shuttle bus frequently operating between hotel and Alona Beach main parking. We really recommend this place as perfect to rest, while still close to everything you need.
Wonderful oasis ”
This place is located conveniently near aAlina Beach but far enough away that it is very quiet and calming. They offer a shuttle to and from Alona Beach every 30 minutes and only takes 3 minutes. The staff was so nice and accommodating. They helped us arrange a tour of the island by car (they only help arrange private tours) but the driver was very professional and adapted the tour based on our preferences. The staff also booked our ferry back to Cebu and arranged a tricycle to the ferry from the resort. The pool was nice to enjoy but there is not too much time where the sun hits the pool due to the trees but it was still nice to sit there and enjoy the quiet. Overall we had a great experience and so far it was our favorite place in the Philippines!
Highlight for us was definitely the staff - they were the kindest and most accommodating we met in the Philippines! Always someone around who’s there ready to help with anything you need. Location is a bit off the beaten path but they run a free shuttle to Alona beach (entrance which is also right in the middle of town) every half an hour which was great - last pick up was 10:30pm so we got that home most nights. Also nice and close to Dumuluan beach (15 mins by tricycle which they arranged) which is the beach we actually preferred. Breakfast was really good with a varied choice and we also ate dinner there one night which was nice too. Pool and buildings are really serene and pretty - only issue we had was birds waking us up every morning as they got into our roof! WiFi worked really well and overall we had a lovely stay and would definitely recommend - wish we could have been there for longer! Thank you to all of the lovely staff at Green Papaya!
Great stay! ”
We loved our stay and would highly recommend the hotel. The bedrooms are spacious, with fan and air conditioning. Breakfast in the morning included, a few options to choice from. Motorbike rental 600 peso per day which is great. The hotel is down a bumpy road and around 10mins drive to alona beach. The restaurant food is standard, however we arrived at 10pm and they kindly made us dinner even though the restaurant had closed. The staff are helpful and friendly. The pool is refreshing and the environment is peaceful. Would definitely come back!
Have both pros and cons”
Price is reasonably lower than high class hotels around. But the location is quite hidden and far from main road and beach. They offer shuttle every 30min yo don't let you down. We didn’t like the tap water. Too salty to even brush your teeth with that water. Also quality of water not good for your hair. So get big water bottles for this case. Pool is quite nice at night with all the color lights. Overall it was nice stay at this resort.
The best in town!”
The place, the staff, the service, the food.. Everything is wonderful! Thank you for everything you cant find better money value in Panglao.
Pro: staff is extremely helpful and kind in booking and giving suggestions (thanks Gia and Aira), the facilities are totally worth the value swimming pool, big and comfy rooms Cons: a bit tricky way to Alona beach
Far from alona”
The hotel provides shuttle to and from alona beach. Far from alona. Bfast is okay you have to order the night before. Ala carte bfast. Hotel located in a small alley. No restaurant nearby. Definitely not coming back
cons - to get to the resort you need to pass by a narrow road. it is near alona beach but you cannot access it directly since there is no right of way going to the beach. the comfort room has no bidet - we booked two rooms but both rooms has no bidet, we requested for balde and tabo but unfortunately they only have one pair.. water in the showers is a little bit salty but it's okay with us.. coffee is warm- not hot, but you can request them to serve you boiling hot coffee. pros - the place is near the nightlife in alona beach but you can still enjoy the peace, quiet, nature/native ambiance of the resort. they do have a free shuttle going to alona beach. staff are welcoming and friendly. water pressure in the bathroom is good. room is clean. food quality and serving size is okay (we tried american breakfast, filipino breakfast, sandwich, pizza, coffee and cocktails)...
Highly recommended ”
The room and facilities were clean and tidy. The staffs are super friendly and accommodating. The place is secluded and is far from the beach front but they have a free shuttle ride to Alona Beach. A great place for people who doesn't like the noisy night life.
Don’t pay more than £40 a night”
You have to inform them what breakfast you want the day before. There are rooms for many guests to stay... at least 24 rooms. Good sized room with balcony overlooking other rooms. Nice swimming pool with plenty of loungers. Good service to beach every thirty minutes. You can also walk there easily if you want, as doesn’t take that long and it’s safe to walk as busy area going past other resorts, shops etc. Staff are very friendly and helpful. The only thing I didn’t like was I had no help with my main luggage on last day... the security guard could easily have offered to help take it to the trycicle as he stood right in front of my bag. But he was too lazy and proved himself not to be a gentleman. That is one of the main reasons I don’t think the resort is value for money. You don’t get that “extra” personal service.
This is a good place to stay, we just didn't have the best experience. We had a little trouble with the staff when we were first checking in, had trouble with the AC unit in our room, and were a bit frustrated that breakfast was exactly the same every morning. When we approached the staff they were very rigid and not really willing to help with much. Next time we go back we will try somewhere new.
Staff are very friendly.World class hospitality experience from the staff. The only downfall is the location.Near from Alona beach but the narrow road going to the resort was very annoying.Shuttle is provided until 10:40pm.
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.
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.
Lovely oasis in Alona”
The property looks pretty much like in the photo. The room is spacious and clean. Location is a bit tucked away, but the shuttle really helps and the pool is nice also they serve great food so we actually spent a lot of time chilling at the property. Staff are all friendly and extremely helpful. We enjoyed our stay.
Super friendly staff, free shuttle to and from the beach 5 min drive. The only slight downside is the pool can be slightly shaded by the amount of greenery. The place is very clean and there are would be happy to recommend to other travellers .
