10.0 Excellent
Pros: Nice and spacious room, amazing pools and a beach, breakfast was good and staffs were soo friendly and helpful.

9.2 Excellent
Pros: We stay in family loft.. it was so nice.. my mom really likes it.. it was quite expensive but it was worth it. And buffet breakfast is really good.
7.5 Good
Pros: the structure of the hotel is nice. Good customer service by all the personnel of the hotel from reception down to security.
Cons: the cleanliness of the room and towels must be improved. The color of the towel is no longer white. The floor has so many stains. We asked to clean the room, yes they did, but just arranged the bedding and other stuffs, however, the sticky stains on the floor was still there and dusty.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The beds were amazing and the villa rooms were great as shown in the photos! The staff was very accommodating and tried to help us with all our requests. The breakfast buffet was also a delight!
Cons: The beachfront wasn't the same as with the photos. It was rocky and hard to get to during low tide. It'd have to be high tide to enjoy the beach well at the hotel. Too bad as well that there was a construction at the resort at the time of our stay.

6.7 Good
Pros: The location is absolutely wonderful. Our villa was right on the beach and breathtaking. There was a lovely pool and massage cabins on the beach which were excellent.
Cons: Breakfast was very good. However, despite many things on offer, yogurt was basic and sweetened and there was no honey the first day. Not what I would really expect from a hotel at this level. There was a mix up with one of my massage bookings and the reception staff blamed the masseuse which was unreasonable of them. The most disappointing fact was that there were loungers all over the beach, but none of them had any kind of mattresses on them. As I have a bad back, this meant that none of them were usable. There were also loungers a bit like short bean bags, but again with a bad back, no support for the head and neck or long legs. The furniture was also very shabby and looked as though it badly needed replacing. This is not what I expect at a beach resort of this calibre. We also felt that the concierge and his support team were wearing uniforms which weren't clean and also looked very shabby. Considering the amazing location of this hotel, this is all very easy to remedy, but a great shame that the management haven't done something about it earlier.
7.0 Good
Pros: the pool
Cons: the extra charge for kids breakfast
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The beach is private and beautiful. We came across a romantic wedding party. The restaurant is great!
Cons: It would be better if this hotel can organize more diving projects. We just hang around the beach while we stay there.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The service is exceptional and location is perfect. Not crowded.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: I highly recommend South Palms resort. The entire resort was tastefully decorated with an array of facilities. The staff were very helpful. The beds were extremely comfortable. There was a great range of food and drinks available. Breakfast buffet outstanding.
Cons: Liked everything about the property but would suggest a variation in the dinner menu. Some dishes were a little too expensive. A dinner buffet would have been nice.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The team individuals and his management was very supportive and remarkable in solving issues that are related to their costumers. We had myself and my family very good time in this resort. The breakfast was excellent has all the choices you need, also the resort was having enough workforce to comply with all customers needs and inquiries. Wish them all the good luck and sustainability to provide more remarkable services.
Cons: Every thing was ok in which I found that ‘ The airport to the resort is 9-10 minutes, recommend for them at least pick up the new arrival guests coming to their resort from any place.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Great beachfront location with excellent facilities and service
Cons: A bit isolated so you have to travel a bit to eat if you want to try something else
10.0 Excellent
Pros: See full of star fish.
Cons: See is to shallow for swimming.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The breakfast was good with sufficient variety. Transfer arrangement from and to the Tagbilaran city port was seamless even though I had to move up our arrival time. I initially advised I would be taking a different speedboat and the property was proactive to confirm that there is no such boat arriving on that day so they wanted to confirm I would not get stranded without pickup if I arrive earlier or later. I had confirmation minutes before the boat departed Cebu City so my entire ride to Bohol I was relaxed knowing the driver will be there to greet us.
Cons: If you want beach for swimming, don't stay on the west side of the resort otherwise you will have to walk far to the premium beach adjacent to the Bohol Beach Club. Watch out for sea urchins, they are indeed present there, so swim shoes are highly advisable.

Pros: Resort grounds were clean and beautiful. Rooms were comfortable. Staff were friendly and knowledgeable. Pools were clean, sanitary and safe.
Cons: The room could have used a little more lighting.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Truely the best option at Alona Beach, best location (quiet yet close to all the actions), intimate service, fabulous breakfast, killer view at the pool.
Cons: some problems with the phone first, then problems with noise and water leak coming from fixing the AC upstairs at 9pm (my parents already went to bed and were quite mad), but I thought 9pm was still reasonably early and both problems were resolved in a timely manner and no complaints. We were moved upstairs for the phone problem and then to a larger suite for the water leak.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Best hotel and service so far in the most beautiful location. Decor is beautiful, room very clean and pools are amazing. Attention to detail is perfect. My favourite hotel so far in Philippines. Staff were very efficient in organising our tours whilst we were in the pool. Staff are very attentive. Breakfast was good with lots of choices even for vegetarians. Dinner at Saffron was delicious.
Cons: -
9.6 Excellent
Pros: It was a really nice and relaxing stay
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Amazing resort with a stunning view of the Alona beach, two swimming pools, very good Restaurant, big and cozy rooms, warm and friendly staff. Quiet and warm atmosphere. A perfect place to stay for a few days or longer
Cons: Maybe the bed was a bit too hard for me but this cannot be a minus as that is too personal
10.0 Excellent
Pros: They allowed early check in, really appreciate that.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Breakfast was good. But it needs more variety. Can't eat the same stuff every morning. Swimming pools were very nice. We enjoyed that a lot! They add extras like cookies in your room everyday, popsicles, cold towels etc which we really appreciated.
Cons: Five days before we arrived, I called Amorita Resort and requested an airport pick up since we were arriving at 8:05pm. I gave our round trip flight details, (since I wanted a shuttle to and from the resort to the airport).how many we were etc. I was told to look for someone with an Amorita sign when we arrive at the airport. I was also informed of the price and to just settle at the resort. When we arrived at Panglao airport there was no Amorita shuttle for us. I called the resort and was told there was no booking and to just take a cab. This was really stupid advice since there are no cabs at the airport at that time. I called resort again and they said they would call a driver. A kind policeman said his neighbor had a van for hire and would be at the airport in 5 minutes. What a godsend. I called resort and told them to forget it, we already had a ride. I also booked the van for our ride to the airport. Our ride cost a fraction of what Amorita was charging us. I told Amorita I would write a bad review of my experience. They offered me a free shuttle to the airport. I refused. I would rather pay than take their offer and not be sure if they'll even show up. Also, Amorita does not have it's own beach.

7.1 Good
Pros: Nice massage, although spa is in the basement and doesn't look amazing. Very friendly staff. Food quality was good. They refill your water glass all the time for free when eating. Nice breakfast with plenty of options. Wonderful pool and view of the beach. Very calm. Very nice and modern rooms.
Cons: Prices for food and drinks very expensive. Their snorkel tour was twice the price for exactly the same tour we found at Alona Beach (private boat, same stops and timing). Feels a bit like being ripped off by your hotel :( The tour operator they work with was also not very good in explaining us the tours... Im happy we didn't book the tour with them. Bathtub was still a bit dirty when we moved in. Rest was clean. Gym is ok, there's cardio machines and weight. Nothing around to buy food /water or have dinner. No free airport transfer if you book via booking.com
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The resort is beautiful - the private beach is amazing. The staff are very considerate and try their best to ensure you feel accommodated. The koi fish in the lobby are really cool too, you have the opportunity to feed them upon request. They also have a little games room and play area for kids.
Cons: The gym room doesn't have much to it. It would be perfect if they could add more equipment to work on different area's of the body.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful location, a little further away from the main attractions but it is easy to book day trips and be picked up from the airport. Also there were shuttle buses available to go to places like Alona beach. It was great that they had free activities every day. Overall very enjoyable stay, amazing staff.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The ambiance, the environment, the place and everything on it. It was beyond amazing!
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Fine otherwise.
Cons: Noisy, lots of small children and music around the pool area, beach not very attractive.
7.0 Good
Pros: The room is amazing and really comfortable. The people from the restaurant were so nice, kind and helpfull. We rented scooters from the concierge and they helped us to maken an amazing route around the island.
Cons: The only member of staff who was not as kind as we would have liked, was the lady checking us in. We came at the hotel around 13:00 and asked if we could check in. This took quite some time, which of course can happen if no rooms were available. Eventually we sat down to go through check in proceedings, we were asked if we wanted an upgrade to an ocean view room, which we did not want, then we declined an included breakfast. We however did get a room at that point but got the feeling because we declined both upsell attempts, we got the least appealing room of the hotel. It was situated at the ground floor, across from a maintance entrance and our outside view was over barbed wire firstly and beyond that a stone quarry like, demolition ground. It did not take away any joy from our amazing trip from to this amazing country, however we would have liked it it we had not gotten the feeling that the frontdesk employee was pushing us for buying upgrades.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The room is spacious. Staff were really nice and pleasant. Amenities is nice. They have plotted activities everyday.
Cons: Bathroom needs renovation. Given that it’s lean season and as disclosed prior checking in, the number of guest is pretty low. Staff could atleast give the guest the best available room they can give. We were entertained like they’re fully booked even if they’re not. The room assigned to us has the ugliest view and I think the least being used because of the location. No free shuttle from Hotel to Airport (vice versa).
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The staff and facilities are always amazing. Such a stunning property, with great facilities and friendly, helpful staff.

Bohol Coco Farm - Panglao - Bedroom

AED 29+
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The rustic set up at the farm, the cleanliness, the very helpful staff that goes beyond to make sure you have a great stay and is here to assist in case of any issues and the breakfast
7.1 Good
Pros: The place looks nice kind of in the middle of the jungle with good common areas. Breakfast is included (not common in the Phillipines) and quite good and complete. Restaurant is very cheap and good. Overall good value for money, clean and cheap.
Cons: Rooms are very small. For the showers you have the choice between cold water with some flow or extremely hot (too hot) water with few droplets. Fan in the room was super noisy and the first night there was a party going on close by and could hear everything the DJ was saying from the bedroom. We dealt with 2 guys from staff, one was super nice but the other was really not nice or enthusiastic. You definitely need to rent a motorbike or pay a tricycle to go anywhere.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Amazing breakfast and people
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Super friendly staff that are pleased to help you. Best breakfast so far that was also included, you meet new people here. Good for solo traveler.
Cons: “Long” walk to the beach, about 20 mins
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The best accommodation experience for me in Philippines taking into consideration that I stayed in 5 other places in the country
8.8 Excellent
Pros: If you want to feel like camping in the middle of nature this place is great for youm exactly what I needed. The staff are very helpfull too. However, this place is pretty far from Alona beach ( 3 usd for tricycle each way ) but it's abt 25 min walk from a better beach where u can have a great swim. They offer some day trips and we really appreciated the level of details they give you before you sign up for any of the trips so you will go with right expectations. And finally the breakfast is made up of rice, shredded coconuts, some veggies and a banana
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The staff is very friendly, the facilities are beautiful, the common room is very large and the atmosphere pleasant and conducive to meet other travelers, the breakfast is very good and there is free coffee, tea and water all day
10.0 Excellent
Pros: If you are looking for a quirky and different place to stay - don't look any further :) perfect for solo travelers. beautiful setting and very welcoming staff. We enjoyed evenings spent in hammocks while chatting to other travelers. Highly recommend!

Cons: The location is a little off the beaten track, but the free shuttle to Alona Beach was good for getting out and about. Room could have been cleaner - some dust and dead bugs.
8.8 Excellent

8.8 Excellent
Pros: This is a very lovely place that is well kept. The staff are excellent, so helpful and friendly. The only small concern is that the water in the toilet in our room kept, kept running 24/7, so it’s a little annoying. So I just kept the bathroom door closed so I didn’t have to hear it. But for the reader of this review, if you are traveling to the Philippines for the 1st time, expect toilet problems. It seems to be the norm everywhere. But still, this is a lovely place. It was my second time there, and I will go again :)
9.2 Excellent

Cons: Nothing it was great
9.2 Excellent
Pros: We didn’t not want to leave! The beds were super comfy, our en-suite patio was perfect for coffee in the morning and the happy staff and delicious food was top notch. When the beach got a little nasty after a storm we were just as happy hanging out at the well maintained pool. The shuttle service to and from Alona is a bonus. The shuttle driver even offered to run into town one night to buy our friends cough syrup bc he knew the Rx would be closing soon. Family feels all around.
Cons: The rain shower head in our room had a black slimy buildup oozing out when we first used it. We had to clean it out for the water to flow properly out of the spigots.

Cons: Nothing i didn't like
10.0 Excellent

9.2 Excellent
Pros: Great staff , clean and big rooms , good restaurant.
Cons: Far from the center but doing free shuttles all day long
6.3 Good
Pros: Nice pool, clean and decent sized rooms with a great T.V which english channels and movies. Decent food can be ordered but i wouldn't say the breakfast was very good. Great shuttle service every half an hour to Alona Beach.
Cons: The staff did try to be helpful, but the trips you book at the place i would say avoid it. 2500peso for a car to do the country trip and we didn't even want to do have of it when it came to it, where they keep the butterflies theirs snakes, and lots of other animals with horrible pictures on the front its cruelty to the animals and I would advise against it. The majority of hte trip was pointless, and although we hired a car and ended the trip with 4hours still left he demanded the whole amount. Do the chocolate hills, and maybe the tarsiers but its still not the best they refused to take us to the proper sanctuary because it was so far away (apparently). We also enquired into the island trip and didn't confirm a booking and the next day they knocked on the door and even though we said we changed our mind and didn't want to go, they told us that we had too, like we didn't have an option- to be fair that day was really nice so glad they pushed us but still. Road to the hotel is really bumpy/muddy/uneven.

Cons: No white sand beach area for swimming. No fan in the check-in area, so humid and hot that day so im sweating like crazy. Their fans are only in the lobby area. The toilet bowl has some brownish-green bubbles floating when we came back in the room, I don’t know if someone used the toilet while we’re out or it’s the water. It looks disgusting though.

9.1 Excellent
Pros: Great pool. Excellent room. Good restauramt and pool staff. Room was great value for the price. Well maintained grounds.

9.6 Excellent
Pros: - the great lagoon - very good breakfast - pool bar - close to Alona beach, reachable by foot - staff was very affordable
Cons: - water in the shower was only cold during our stay. They couldn't manage to fix it after telling the problem
7.0 Good
Pros: Breakfast was good, they made custom omelettes, and there was enough choice. For lunch and dinner the food was nice (although expensive). The hotel is nice, with a cool layout, well maintained greenery, great pool and amenities for diving courses. The staff is smiling and helpful.
Cons: We were put on top floor, while there was a reconstruction going on on the roof - meaning the jackhammer & drilling noise from 8am until sunset. So no way to sleep late in the mornings. We were moved to a lower floor after we asked. The resort doesn't have a beach, and to get to Alona Beach, you need to take the shuttle. The location is isolated - no alternative dining options in walking distance. Need to take either a shuttle to town, or dine in expensive in-house restaurants.
7.7 Good
Pros: Brand new hotel - nice rooms and facilities
Cons: The pool is in a bad position: after 3 PM comes the shade of the main building!
7.9 Good
Pros: Staff was friendly. Food was good. Pools were exquisite! If you needed to leave early for a trip, they can pack your buffet breakfast for you.
Cons: Our room was next to a construction site shift drilling wakes us up. There was no beach. Double bed instead of one king size. Shower head was leaky and the flush didn't work. No outside calls on the room phone
7.1 Good
Pros: Breakfast is good, the room and the bed are comfy, service is good, staff is available
Cons: Too touristique place for me. This is a huge resort so if you want to relax and chill this is not the best place to be
8.0 Excellent
Pros: The staff were always very friendly and it was lovely to receive complementary snacks, drinks, cake as well as transport to the local area as a bonus for staying in the villa. The villa is definitely spacious and comfortable for a long stay and in a quiet spot in the resort to make it feel very exclusive, which is further enhanced by the villa only pools which surround the villas which were never too busy.
Cons: The beach/ rocky shore is not a highlight. The buffet whilst adequate could be expanded. Due to the location, you may find the resort is a little secluded and away from Alona beach, nightlife and eateries.

7.5 Good
Pros: the structure of the hotel is nice. Good customer service by all the personnel of the hotel from reception down to security.
Cons: the cleanliness of the room and towels must be improved. The color of the towel is no longer white. The floor has so many stains. We asked to clean the room, yes they did, but just arranged the bedding and other stuffs, however, the sticky stains on the floor was still there and dusty.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The beds were amazing and the villa rooms were great as shown in the photos! The staff was very accommodating and tried to help us with all our requests. The breakfast buffet was also a delight!
Cons: The beachfront wasn't the same as with the photos. It was rocky and hard to get to during low tide. It'd have to be high tide to enjoy the beach well at the hotel. Too bad as well that there was a construction at the resort at the time of our stay.

Pros: Resort grounds were clean and beautiful. Rooms were comfortable. Staff were friendly and knowledgeable. Pools were clean, sanitary and safe.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Truely the best option at Alona Beach, best location (quiet yet close to all the actions), intimate service, fabulous breakfast, killer view at the pool.
Cons: some problems with the phone first, then problems with noise and water leak coming from fixing the AC upstairs at 9pm (my parents already went to bed and were quite mad), but I thought 9pm was still reasonably early and both problems were resolved in a timely manner and no complaints. We were moved upstairs for the phone problem and then to a larger suite for the water leak.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Best hotel and service so far in the most beautiful location. Decor is beautiful, room very clean and pools are amazing. Attention to detail is perfect. My favourite hotel so far in Philippines. Staff were very efficient in organising our tours whilst we were in the pool. Staff are very attentive. Breakfast was good with lots of choices even for vegetarians. Dinner at Saffron was delicious.
Cons: -
9.6 Excellent

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Amazing resort with a stunning view of the Alona beach, two swimming pools, very good Restaurant, big and cozy rooms, warm and friendly staff. Quiet and warm atmosphere. A perfect place to stay for a few days or longer
Cons: Maybe the bed was a bit too hard for me but this cannot be a minus as that is too personal
10.0 Excellent
Pros: They allowed early check in, really appreciate that.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Breakfast was good. But it needs more variety. Can't eat the same stuff every morning. Swimming pools were very nice. We enjoyed that a lot! They add extras like cookies in your room everyday, popsicles, cold towels etc which we really appreciated.
Cons: Five days before we arrived, I called Amorita Resort and requested an airport pick up since we were arriving at 8:05pm. I gave our round trip flight details, (since I wanted a shuttle to and from the resort to the airport).how many we were etc. I was told to look for someone with an Amorita sign when we arrive at the airport. I was also informed of the price and to just settle at the resort. When we arrived at Panglao airport there was no Amorita shuttle for us. I called the resort and was told there was no booking and to just take a cab. This was really stupid advice since there are no cabs at the airport at that time. I called resort again and they said they would call a driver. A kind policeman said his neighbor had a van for hire and would be at the airport in 5 minutes. What a godsend. I called resort and told them to forget it, we already had a ride. I also booked the van for our ride to the airport. Our ride cost a fraction of what Amorita was charging us. I told Amorita I would write a bad review of my experience. They offered me a free shuttle to the airport. I refused. I would rather pay than take their offer and not be sure if they'll even show up. Also, Amorita does not have it's own beach.

Pros: Henann Resort is a very big resort with amazing pools and beach front facilities. The staff are very kind and accommodating to your needs. It’s perfectly located on the waterfront and within walking distance to anything you need
