Great location, right on the beach! Tip: Don't be confused by the number of resorts that share the name "Alona". I noticed a large disparity what is included with each room but comfortable enough considering you're probably not going to be spending much time locked in your room with so much to do near by.

Awesome Hotel, Nice rooms. Best thing about Alona Vida is the Bar/Restaurant, the cocktails and the food is great, the staff are lovely, helpful and cheerful. I would highly recommend Alona Vida to anyone, families with Kids (we saw a lot there) and also couples.

There is nothing particularly wrong with this place. But once I got there I realized the price was a bit steep for the value. The rooms are clean and the bed is quite comfortable. The hotel has beach access but the water is not really visible from the rooms. There is a balcony, but so are there in most rooms... More

Nice small hotel directly on the amazing Alona beach. Best thing of this hotel is the cafe/bar Coco vida. Delicious seafood and great late night entertainment. Staff is also very poilte and helpfull. We did a day trip to Oslob to swim with the whale sharks and that was amazing. The rooms are comfortable but basic, one of the best... More

We were travelling as a group of friends end of May. Wa had rooms in the back which were nice and quiet and at the same time only 1 minute from the beach. The rooms were nice and clean and large. AC worked good and the housekeeping was thorough. They had sunbeds you can borrow for free. (I only wish... More

Basic rooms but very close to dive shop, beach and restaurants. Hotel amenities weren't that great but if you are in Alona to dive and sit on the beautiful beach then you probably wont use them much. Reception staff were very helpful.

On the beach with a pool, bar and restaurant. Nice and clean rooms and friendly service with breakfast included. Service in the restaurant is extremely slow so eat lunch and dinner somewhere else. Has evening singer entertainment which is nice. Weather was perfect with a nice breeze. Plenty to do and easy to get to from Tagbilaran. Only 20 minutes... More

What a great little place on the beach. The location is great - walk 20m and you're in the water! The rooms are pretty basic but they are clean and we found the bed very comfortable. Get a room out the back and you don't hear the beach front noise. The bar/restaurant out the front was great - good variety... More

The Good: Coco Vida bar, which is owned by the hotel is one of the better ones on the beach, very consistent and tasty food, Coco Vida bar staff outstanding and friendly. The Bad: Rooms are way overpriced for Alona beach; nearly double the price of very comparable rooms just steps away. The worst is the beds which in some... More
