                Value for money, quiet resort with friendly staff”

                This resort was chosen because of its proximity to Alona beach where I planned to bring my kids aged 7 and 2. Though the resort was farther than expected, the shuttle service was convenient and easy to locate at the parking lot. The staff was extremely helpful in helping us getting around panglao island and were knowledgeable with information necessary for tourists. The room was clean and towels were provided. The pool was cleaned daily and the breakfast was decent. Will definitely consider staying again on our next Panglao visit.

                BAD service attitude ”

                I was booked a twin bed room by agoda. when i was there, we found that the door is unable to close and lock, so we went to the reception and let them know, or at lease let the door close without lock is okay for us. the girl who was on duty on 21th Jul around 8pm was in a very bad attitude when facing our issue. and she stated two bed room is for Family only instead of Group of friend, so the door can’t be close will be not an issue for family traveler. WHAT IS THE NICE EXCUSE? This hotel i would not recommend to my friend with such bad attitude to guest!

                We loved our stay at the Scent of Green Papaya. We were initially just going to stay one night but ended up extending for 3 extra nights. First night I was food poison and they kindly made me an special rice soup which definitely help me to settle my stomach. Thank you to the lovely girls at the reception always telling us to enjoy our day! Only downside, the male guests bringing “companions” to spend the night and have breakfast around other guests. Apart from that, everything was 10/10

                Bridal shower summer getaway”

                This is my first trip to Bohol and I went with college friends, one of whom was getting married soon. There were 6 of us who are all part of the “Bride Squad”. They have airport transfers; they’re only 10 minutes away from the new Panglao airport. The place was away from beach front but they had a shuttle service. They can also make arrangements for day tours and beach tours, which we both booked. It was brilliant! I went to the Loboc river cruise and the Chocolate Hills among other things. Wow! The staff also helped us surprise my friend by helping with the logistics of the surprise bridal shower. They allowed us to decorate the room and sneak a cake in. This was just one of the many instances they accommodated requests from us. Their overall service and treatment of guests was beyond exceptional. Kudos to all the staff! The food was delicious and generously served as well. Worth every peso. ☺️ Will definitely come back and recommend to friends.

Location wise, it’s quite a distance to Alona beach but worry not, shuttle is provided every 30mins to Alona beach. The staffs are very friendly and accommodating. Our daily routine while waiting for shuttle were to hang around the reception and had small talk with the lovely girls!

                Pros: I love the resort vibes :) Welcome drinks upon arrival Very friendly staff No room internet the first night we arrived. They connected me to the office wifi but I have to be at the restaurant area. The next day, and when we got back from our tour, the wifi is fixed and provided new password. I give them 10 stars for that! Free shuttle service to Alona Beach is very convenient The pool is well maintained The food is great when we ate dinner at the resto New room facilities Cons: Wifi was down on the first night (but as I mentioned, they did a quick fix of the problem) Water was salty in the bathroom - we used drinking water to brush our teeth because it had this really salty aftertaste First housekeeping was a little unprofessional when they just opened the door without knocking - but kudos to them for keeping the rooms well cleaned Breakfast selection could improve - but taste was great and the fruits were always fresh Thank you, SOGP! Til next time!

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.

                We stayed there for 8 days. The small resort is fine and quiet. However if you have young children it can be very tricky to move around so we had to rent our own transportation. Beaches are too far. In the resort there is not much to do for the kids apart from an adult pool. Also, when it is raining it is very challenging as there is no activities to entertain them. The choice of food is very limited and they often run out of ingredients. I found part of the staff unprepared to handle clients (an example among the others: a morning I asked for the milk for the kids breakfast and they said they would have brought it. After 15 minutes they didn’t so we went back to ask and they said again they would have brought it, at the end we went back for the third time after almost one hour and they said they had run out of milk. So Just let us know!). Also we found part of the staff not too accommodating and even not too polite. The place is ok if you are a couple without too many expectations.

                Great pool and surroundings, restaurant simple but very well prepared and presentable food - kitchen spotless Walkable distance to Alona Beach although also a shuttle bus-its timetable is often sketchy Priorisation of certain guests can annoy other guests. Drivers let the resort down big time.... Not collected at airport, on a trip driver wasn't there to pick me up and had to call resort, shuttle bus didn't arrive as driver on a break (those times constantly change), shuttle ran out of gas when hired to go to nearby Dumaluan Beach (nicer swimming beach) Cleaning good but more attention to floor needed. Often got flea type bites which not expected of resort of this quality and price. Restaurant and reception staff lovely, friendly and mostly professional. The odd slip up with self interest which disappointing but no big deal.

                The resort is perfect for families who prefer less strenuous activities and a relaxing place to stay. The staff was friendly and polite. Two things which prevented me from giving the resort a perfect score: (1) water is salty; and (2) the shuttle driver from alona beach back to the resort seems to be in a hurry to go back to the resort. I waited near the i love panglao signage for the shuttle by 8:50pm. When the shuttle arrived at the pick up point at alona beach around 9:10pm, he did not even wait 5 minutes to check if there are waiting passengers or are walking towards the pick up point. I tried to signal the driver to wait because two of my companions are old so they cannot walk fast but driver just sped away. Since it was already past 9pm, we had to pay P100 for a tricycle ride back to the resort because we don't want to wait another 30 mins. for the shuttle to come back.

I had no complaints but I was with small children and the pool was basic but clean. I would definitely stay here again. There is a shuttle to the beach every thirty minutes.

                Great Service, Nice Resort”

                I spent my much needed R&R in Bohol. I booked just a couple of weeks prior so rates were sort of high. But I am happy to have booked here. It is not beach front but since our cottage/room was great and pool was likewise perfect, we did not mind staying inside the resort and swim in the pool instead. Place is quiet, not crowded and well kept. Staff were all nice and attentive to our needs always. If any, I would suggest faster wifi and more food choices. Given the chance, I'd stay here again.

                Great food and service!”

                The hotel is a little bit far from the beachfront but since it had its own shuttle service it's manageable. There are also a lot of restaurants and spa places near the hotel location so it's ok. What I loved about the place if their food and service. I look forward to every breakfast and their food is just delicious. Their staff is also nice and very willing to help. They also clean the rooms daily. I guess what I didn't like is that when we stayed at room B3 there were lots of black ants. But overall, the hotel is great.

                Fantastic Resort!”

                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.

                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 :)

                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!

                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!
