          Thank you, South Palms!”
          Everyone was truly nice, esp. the restaurant staff. Thank you for treating our toddler well. :) Food was a bit on the expensive side, but was delish. Breakfast buffet had lots of food options to choose from. Our room (deluxe beach front) was made up 2x a day by housekeeping. Once in the morning, and then late afternoon including a turn down treat (love the peanut kisses!). The resort itself was clean and super relaxing. If we had the budget, we'd've stayed more than 4 days. Hehe!

          This is definitely a 5 star resort. plenty of land area, so it never seemed crowded eventhough the resort was full for the easter weekend. Was planning to return again this year, but sadly, easter weekend was sold out 6+ months ahead...wow!

          All is very well (better be for the high prices they charge). I have only these complaints: - the bed is way to o soft - breakfast buffet plundered half an hour before closing and not filled up anymore - restaurant food is expensive and does not taste great: you are better off in the neighbouring resort - they charge 500 PHP for a 10 minute ride in their van ...

          Amazing View!”
          This hotel is right in front of a beautiful beach surrounding by palm/coconut trees. The facilities in the room are not so great. They have just the basic things you can have even in a cheap hotel. I was also not amazed with the breakfast menu. Food from the restaurant is very expensive. But this resort will win your heart for it's breath taking views. Any where you go, it is a picture perfect view! Staffs are very friendly. I would recommend this hotel but will suggest them to improve the room decor and amenities along with food.

          Such a lovely place!”
          We loved the place! We love how all the staff were very polite and accommodating. They were always greeting us and were always ready to assist us. There were a lot of choices in the breakfast buffet too which was great because I love breakfast buffets. The regular restaurant food though was expensive and has limited choices but they have free shuttle in the afternoon going to Alona at 3PM to 5PM so you can just go there to eat if you want cheaper choices. They will also assist you in getting a tricycle going outside of the resort since the entrance is not really near the reception roundabout. South Palms beach also has the most beautiful front beach among the resorts in Panglao so if you want to have a chill out of town without any activities, this is the best resort to stay at. It has two pools so if you don't feel like swimming at the beach then you can just use the pool. My husband and I will definitely go back here!

          Quiet, relaxing, natural place. Thumbs up for private beach and free rental service(kayak, life vest etc) I stayed 2nights in south palms, and next 2 nights in Henann resort. Both places are good. The difference is, south is cozy and relaxing. Henann is more like,, flashy and has easy access to Alona beach. It depends on what kind of vacation you want.

          Bohol Bliss”
          South Palms Resort provides a very relaxing vibe. The place is so grand and peaceful. They are able to effectively maintain the vast space of trees and cottages, not to mention the long strip of the beach they occupy. All over the place, there are hammocks and swing beds that you can use to rest. The cottages are well maintained and clean. We booked the Garden View cottage and it exceeded our expectation in it's location. The staff are all very accommodating and friendly. Not one of them fails to greet you when you pass them by anytime of the day. Upon check-in, they greeted us with coconut necklaces, shaped like a heart. They also offered us cucumber juice and cold towels. One front desk staff, Jojie, even assisted me in getting a birthday cake for my husband. Robel and Joey from Oceanica Resto gave birthday surprises for my husband, and they assisted me in our dinner reservations. We enjoyed our stay in Panglao mainly because of South Palms. Thank you South Palms Resort!

          nothing can beat the views, the location, the ambiance - it is heaven!! food quality and variety can be improved, available accessibility for guests in and out of the resort should be thoroughly thought of and highly considered but management. i think an investment of golf carts to ferry in and out of guests from hotel lobby to main road can elevate this resort services and facilities to next level - with the customer needs in mind..

          For the second time - after a summer stay in August - we had a pleasure to stay for short time before XMass time. As usual the welcome was perfect, the staff so friendly - cook and restaurant "brigade" on top. It's really a pleasure to spend time on your resort, lot of place (even when it's full) is a quiet and peaceful place. Thanks and remember, to be at the top is more or less easy but to stay at the top, should be a daily challenge…..

          Rainy Day Stay”
          Resort has pretty nice location. You can own the beach for the whole day. During our stay, my partner woke up at 5:30 to make sure she gets to kayak at 6. Happy with the attendant that they stayed friendly even if they were disturbed so early. One down thing we have observed was that we have to inform the room attendant to replace our toiletries... they dont seem to care whether the shampoo or body soap need to be replaced. BUt they are pretty attentive to our Water. i like that they replaced our water as and when they come and visit our room. Yes! we need not to put the "dont disturb" signage as we want them to come and check our room now and then :) Oh! the bed was toOoooo comfortable to sleep on. My partner slept like nobody's business.^_^ (w/c made me happy ofcourse as we were there to relax) if you all want a more relaxing stay, choose the right month. why? our last night in the resort was stressful as we the ferry to cebu was cancelled. :( but staff in the hotel, updates now and then...

          The place is very spacious with huge gardens. mini-forest, manicured lawns, two pools to choose from, and a wide expanse of a beachfront. On top of this, there are a lot of activities to keep one entertained --- bicycles, snorkeling (there were two coral reefs approximately 300m-400m from shore, with probably a depth of 15m during low tide), kayaking, foosball, table tennis, billiards/pool, tennis, basketball, and a spa. They also have live music at night which lends to a pleasant dinner atmosphere. Dining choices are aplenty with Filipino favorites, continental cuisine (pasta/salads, sandwiches), and Asian cuisine in the menu. But best of all, staff were friendly, courteous, and attentive. They make you feel at home.

          Beautiful place and wonderful staff”
          We stayed in the Beach Villa. It was big and the villa closest to the restaurant and reception. It has a big front yard. We had our own hammock that the kids love. The food is priced reasonable, the kids love the muchroom pasta. They accommodated our off menu requests during dinners like bananas and sunny side up. And they spoiled us rotten with yakult and yogurt during breakfast. Shout out to Robel! The use of the kayak is free so that's a plus. The beach on the left side of the resto facing the sea has finer sands than the one in the right which has too many seaweeds (?). During the kids' kayak ride with their Dad, they saw a lot of star fishes. Oh, I love their mini forest too. My eldest wants to spend her birthday there next year. We will definitely go back 😊👍

          Great at first sight but quite disappointing in certain ways ”
          I booked a beach front room at this hotel for six nights. The facilities are quite nice, the environment is clean and staff is friendly. However, the hotel is quite far from the main area (Alona beach) and their shuttle services are only available at 15:00 (bound for Alona beach) and 17:00 (back to the hotel). This was purposely scheduled to discourage you from eating outside the hotel as you'd find out you can eat dinner at restaurants along the Alona beach for 1/3rd or a quarter of the price you'd get in South Palms Resort. However, the meals you get in this hotel are mediocre and as I said, overpriced. I live in Tokyo and I can assure you you'll end up paying less for the same dishes in Tokyo. The service is quite slow. Expect 20-30 minutes for each dish to arrive. The beach is nice but since the tide is very low, you can not swim in the sea. Also, they won't let you pass the designated area due to the presence of the boats. Also, welcome ants in your room. Soyhan

          relaxing stay”
          I stayed with my family, a 2 yr old and our helper in a beach front room. Upon entering the resort, you can really feel the grandness of the place. Check in was a breeze, paid additional 2000 pesos per night for the extra bed and breakfast. Our room was at the rightmost end of the beach. We initially thought it was so far away but walking along the beach with the many coconut trees was very relaxing. You get to admire the surroundings and feel the sea breeze. Staff are friendly and service is impeccable. I even got 2 birthday cakes and a room decorated with balloons. Housekeeping and turndown service was great with lots of bottled water and complimentary peanut kisses. There are also a lot of swings with mattresses that you can lounge or nap on. There are also bikes you can ride around the resort. We truly enjoyed our stay. You will not get this kind of privacy and serenity along Alona beach. The only downside is there is only 1 restaurant so you'll be eating all your meals in that 1 resto. Options are quite limited for family style meal sharing. But overall, still a great experience! If you want a relaxing stay in Bohol, this is the best resort. I will definitely come back.
