short walk from the beach, facilities a bit lacking compared to a normal hotel (all's good, just no shower foams). Wi-Fi is also next to impossible to connect to, and only works at the lobby or during non-peak hours or if you're lucky,

A very well run clean hotel with great staff that are all very helpful. While the rooms are a little basis and some things in the room were getting a little tired the room was clean and well kept. The internet was get fast and reliable with no drop outs. The hotel is a little walk from the beach and town and at night as the roads are not lite you really need to take a trike. I would certainly stay there again.

Very happy”
We stayed for five nights. We had a room with a loft. There were only two of us but there was plenty of extra room for sleeping in the loft space for another two people. The room was cleaned daily. The TV had lots of channels. The breakfast included in the price was pretty good and fresh yogurt and honey available too. The eating area was really nice and they specialised in Italian food. Very nice pizza. The staff were excellent, always friendly and very helpful. Everything was fine. The only thing I didn't find comfortable were the pillows and also found the bed too hard for my liking but apart from that I would thoroughly recommend this as a good hotel and I'm fussy. We will try to book again the next time we visit the lovely island of Bohol.

EXTRA CHARGES!!!!”
First of all, Vanilla Sky Hotel is located in an obscure location with respect to most resort areas. However, the benefit is that you can drive down the street on a motorbike if you want and not pay parking fees for the beach access. You come in on the Southern-most part of the beach. Vanilla Sky is not a big place, but a nice place. Basically an old hotel (12 rooms total) bought and improved upon by an Italian guy. He added a new and very beautiful dining area (truly worth seeing). It's the thatched roof type that took some real talent to build. I love the design! The pool is nice and accommodating. The rooms are a bit old but still nice enough to enjoy the place. I didn't like the "mixed" paint touchups though. If you use a different paint for touchups, you really just need to paint the entire wall at least. A best, paint the entire room so the touchups don't blare out at you. Notwithstanding that, I would still recommend the place except for the "extra charges." Just into our third day, we were approached by one of the staff (nice gal) and informed that we had stains on a sheet we used. At first, we were just baffled over how they got there or if we even did it somehow. Despite that, we were told we would have to pay P1000 ($20-$25) for a new sheet because it can't be used again. Seriously, the stains were small, and we saw no problems with them in the first place. Still, we were faced with a fine if we didn't clean the sheet somehow. To avoid the charges, we had an outside cleaner do an overnight job for P490. The stains came out, which made me wonder why the hotel couldn't get the stains out themselves. Add to the fact that P1000 is enough to buy three sets of sheets with pillow cases, and that irritated me even more. Upon checking out the next day, we cleared with a new gal. Upon handing her the sheets, she looked baffled. We explained the situation to her. She looked even more baffled and explained to us that the hotel had only charge

Greetings, Thanks for this feedback and thanks for the suggestion and compliments. We really enjoy having you here. We will really hope to see you again here.Regarding the sheets,We are really sorry about the sheet that we let you clean due to the small spot of stain. We will assure that this situation won't happen again. Again we are really sorry.

not right on beach, but pretty close, about 5-10 walk to first beach, then another 5 minutes to Alona Beach(resto/bars). Pretty much need to take trike or taxi if going anywhere else. Hotel has good deal for family/kids (special rooms/bedding).

Small resort but very clean and comfortable.”
Pool. Friendly staff. Fun.
Stayed as a Family group. Rooms were very nice clean adn spacious. This spa is small but it has a nice eating area with bar next to the pool. The pool was definitely the highlight of our stay. There is a shallow end to the pool which is safe for the little ones. Food is nice. Breakfast a little basic but included. Motorcycle hire is available from reception. It is a little expensive, but we found it essential for our tours of the chocolate hills, Tagbiliran and the Bee farm etc. We enjoyed our stay here very much and I feel it was good value for the money.

Great beach resort.”
New hotel with good pool.
The resort is a short walk from Alona beach which is the main beach on the island. It's an excellent hotel. The facilities have been built to a high standard and we were very impressed with the hotel. The air con is good and its only the local water pressure that reduces the shower efficiency. Food is good and staff are helpful.

Pizza made in a wooden oven. spices and mozzarella produced inhouse by the Italian owner.

What's not to like ? Location 5 mins walk to the beach , owner and staff top class and food could not fault , try the Italian cuisine I loved it , the rooms were all facing the pool and hot water and bathroom / toilet spotless ( makes a nice change in the Philippines ) if a small Criticism then only 2 pillows and a sheet provided , you can pay extra for more but I think that's a bit mean as should be catered for in the price , but from the kids to the adults we couldn't have been happier, construction next door on new restaurant slightly annoying but would definately book again if back in Bohol !! Thanks to all at VS 👍

delicious foods, kind staffs, cozy place”
+ the staffs are kind and helpful, as well as the owner, who always smile and greets us. the food at the resto is good, fresh and yummy, try hot craprese, its their home made mozzarella wrapped in a dough and dip fry, if im not mistaken. their menu includes filipino, italian and mixed cuisines. price ranging from 200-300 mostly. the seafoods are much fresher here that what are offered outside, i recommend you to have your luch and dinner here. they also gave us welcome drinks, orange juice as we came in. the place is clean too. plus cute kids around. walking distance to the beach. - the tricycle fare is just Php 50, but the tricycle drivers rape the price and ask for Php 100 for a less than 1k distance trip, they take advantage of the foreign tourist and ask for much larger fare that much expensive than riding a taxi. (good thing we ask the owner how much the fare should be and the next time we ride the tricycle we only paid for Php50, even he don't like haha). if going to walk at night, the short cut going to the beach is not advisable due to no light post, better to leave earlier to save money, its not that far though. their is no bidet in the bath room, but we ask for a basin instead. = we didn't not able to use the pool with 6ft-8ft deep, it seems nice though. **other tips in buying foods/souvenirs: the price of foods/souvenirs are quite pricey in some locations. the best place to buy is at the Hanging Bridge in Sipatan River, the prices here are the lowest. for example, tshirts and sandols here are just Php99, while in panglao range from Php180-380, the price is twice to thrice bigger, you can also buy ref magnets and chains 8 pcs for Php100, while in panglao Php50-150 per pcs. -in comes to food, if you like seafoods(fresh, of your choice), it is better to choose the smaller one for cheaper price, and they will have it cook for you. or better eat at vanilla sky's resto. :-) hope these will help :-)

Great room, two air units, living room with desk and refrig, outstanding restaurant, owner on premises, owner is Italian and makes 3 homemade cheeses, two of which are featured on the menu currently, a mozzarella and a ricotta and soon a feta that he brought to our table to sample. Best Italian food I've ever had in the Philippines. Only cons I have are salt water shower, lack of a hot water maker in the room and a 5+ minute walk to the beach. Otherwise an outstanding place to stay.
