          Good location! Sadly maintenance required”

          We stayed for 4 nights in one of the Villas, very roomy and quite comfortable overall as weather was very steamy. However disappointed with maintenance of the place in general -shower leaked, some of the furnishings were out of place and others had seen better days. We are regular travellers and definitely not picky and rarely write these reviews. This accommodation was regarded as a 'Treat' due to the cost per night, cost but sadly did not equate to quality here. Rooms should be around 30% less unless they do some refurb works. Standard breakfast included but could choose some options and cook staff were always happy to please. Staff in general were always happy and helpful. Location great as close to the best beach by far, Dumaluan. Turn right and beach gets wider, cleaner and less trodden. Lovely area with really nice locals, the reason why we all should travel is to meet the people and enjoy there culture. Enjoy you time in Philippines wherever you stay. Cheer Ads n Tan

          Nice getaway”

          Small hotel outside Alona Beach. Takes about 8 min to get to Alona Beach with a tricycle (150 pesos) Big rooms, nicely decorated. Even though it is outside town, there is a bit of noise from chickens, dogs and road, so don't expect total silence Great Italien food, maybe the portions are a bit small, that goes for the breakfast to, where you can choose from a couple of dishes. Little more expensive then if you go into town. The staff is VERY friendly, and really helpfull. There is a nice Beach just a couple af minuts walk away, you can't go there without passing through a resort, so it costs 25 pesos for the whole day to go to the beach. In the resort there is toilets, a small shop were you can buy cold drinks and snacks, and a little bar that makes food and drinks, the prices are okay. Transport from airport costs 600, and to ferry pier 700 + 10 pesos. A little bit expensive for my taste.

          We were sadly very dissapointed with our stay and within 10 mins wanted to leave. Pros: only the location for dumualean beach which is just 3 mins walk away. Cons: lack of care for customers, no greeting or assistance with luggage on arrival, deluxe room had ruaty items, odd cups, towels, a broken window on arrival which meant room wasn't secure and could be broken into easily. When reported we were told it would be fixed that dat but on return it wasn't and had to ask again and insist that if not fixed we wanted to leave. For four days the American breakfast wasn't available as they had missing items. Restaurant.wasnt a restaurant at all and so uninviting. Everything was just very unprofessional.. Even our taxi to the airport turned out to be a friends truck with her mum in it! we wanted to leave after ten mins but new it would be too much hassle and we'd not get our money back. Worst hotel and value for money during our 3 week stay. Really miserable so we went out all the tim

          Dear Teresita, Thank you for taking your time to write us a review. We've already explained to you during your stay that television was not on our amenities / facilities list found in Agoda when you booked. We apologize again that you expected for a buffet breakfast in a small property like ours, however, we have 7 different breakfast sets to choose from. Regarding the mosquitoes in the surroundings, we're sorry that they come out around 5.30 to 6 pm. Dumaluan beach is about 200 meters away from Villa Formosa (3 to 5-minute walk) and it's their policy to ask 25 pesos as entrance fee. We sincerely apologize if you found your stay with us "not good". We hope to make it up to you when you return in the future. Thank you again for staying with us! Best Regards, Matet

From the attentive and kind staff, to the hospitable owners (Mathias and Matet) it was a pleasure to stay there in every sense of the word. We stayed in the delux bungalow and it was spacious, comfortable and exceptionally clean. The restaurant in Villa Formosa was delicious and with the suggestions from both Mathias and Matet we discovered some fantastic dishes. We cant wait to come back :)

          Amazing place. Really great for a romantique getaway. You have to pay to get on the beach, a bit strange, but worth it. Really great pool. Great food. Alhona beach is a 5km drive away but this spot is much better for a quite getaway from the action at Alhona.

          Relaxation achieved during my whole stay.”

          the mattress and pillows are 5 star hotel quality. the place itself is beautiful, very modern. Jona the staff is very friendly and spoiled us during our stay.

          We were lucky to find this place, because our group (9pax) had the entire place to ourselves. The pool and garden view was very relaxing. The villas were excellent, very modern and the beddings and pillows were 5 star hotel quality. It was so hard to get up in the morning and do the tours. The place itself was already good for relaxation and fun, you would forget there was a beach outside.

          A great little place”

          Very close to the most beautiful beach on Bohol. The staff were delightful and made us very welcome. Breakfast was great and the two dinners we had during our 5 day stay we really good. It was a a lovely little place, just thought though that it was a tad overpriced and basic as we had stayed in better quality accomadation for less on Bohol.
