          Beautiful place!”

          It’s such a beautiful destination with staff that are friendly and ready to help. (Shout out to the bar staff!) It’s just a shame that a certain type of traveller was arriving by the bus load...loud, disrespectful to travellers, staff and sea life and poorly behaved in general. The grounds were perfectly maintained and the restaurant served up wonderful food. We’ll be back!

          Excellent”

          The staff superb, awesome service. Buffet Breakfast choices excellent. Food choices for lunch and dinner limited and pricey, taste too ‘fusiony’ for lack of a better term. It wasn’t bad but I wanted authentic ‘Kare-Kare”. One stone crab was Php 1500.00. One pompano Php 895 prepared to order. Massage not too good. The worst part of the entire resort were the other Asian non-Filipino guests. For an American couple used to Southeast Asian/Filipino warmth these Koreans???Japanese??! Chinese??? with stony stares and no response when nodded/smiled/greeted e.g. ‘good morning’ or ‘hello,’ made our whole stay really weird. Couldn’t tell because no one wanted to talk to us. We usually interact with other travelers and being with people like these make me want to stay elsewhere next time. There were only two other Caucasian couples in the entire place.

          Staff were courteous and very attentive. I informed the resort that we were celebrating our anniversary and to our surprise, everyone from the housekeeping to the waiters KNEW and greeted us! The place was beautifully maintained, hands down my favorite in the Philippines. I can't wait to go back!!!

          The beach here is much nicer and not crowded with boats. We rented a scooter to get to Alona beach whenever we wanted to eat at restaurants. The breakfast buffet has a huge selection. All in all, great stay!

          The place is very relaxing and nice! Well maintained... staff is very friendly, accommodating, helpful and warm... beach and pool are perfect! Room is cozy, clean and big. We love the eco-friendly set up, water is not in a plastic bottle and refillable! Food is great! We’ll definitely come back! Suggestion: If you will have a beach wedding, please make sure to provide a big fan, in the area.

          Great for a chill, relaxing weekend. Great service! Highly recommended!”

          Very good service from the warm & thoughtful staff, with small touches of hospitality here & there. At dinner, our server immediately noticed that my friend had a hoarse voice & offered that warm ginger tea was available. Food is good, & the acoustic solo that accompanied dinner was top-notch. Even though they were fully booked, the place didn’t feel packed, except maybe unless everyone was at dinner. Daybeds & hammocks dot in between the numerous palm trees around the rooms, perfect for relaxing! Lots of lounging options at the beachfront as well, for those looking to perfect their tan. Beds are comfortable, & there are even options for different kinds of pillows available. Highly recommended!!!

          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 ...

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..

          Amazing beach - good room - amazing staff”

          About the hotel itself first : the room is clean (although there was just a shower, no bath) , the facilities are great and the beach is abolutely amazing. A lot of spaces to rest (sofas, hamac, etc), instangram worthy ;) The pool is a bit small, not super inviting (but again, why going into the pool when the sea is that nice) But the best part here was the staff : really super nice people, always trying to make you feel happy and confortable. One example : Our daughter was sick in the evening and the nurse (they have a 24h nurse) woke up, took care of her, joined us at the hospital : and the transportation Hotel -> hospital -> hotel was totally free of charge, at 2am in the morning. it is extremely rare and we loved it.
