Rooms are clean. Restaurant and bar is okay (to be frank, I couldn't find any truly good food in the Philippines). House bank is excellent. Staff is friendly. And the affiliated dive shop is convenient. My only real complaint is that the wifi is crap. Sounds like minor complaint, but it's a real hassle when you are trying to use... More

We stayed here over the xams period 2014 and was pleasantly surprised by the excellent bar and daily seafood grill that was the most popular on the beach every night! The manager Alex was SO lovely, funny and helpful, and the bar staff were also very helpful and attentive. Pulboy - the lovely senior waiter man was also always on... More

We went to the Alona Vida Beach Resort in the beginning of September 2014. The entrance and check-in desk are down a small alley and the desk faces the dive shop across the way. It seemed that most of the people staying here were divers from other countries. We stayed in the room in the back on the second floor,... More

good pleasant stay. Luckily i got one of the new rooms which were built next to the pool. Rooms are spacious clean and have everything i needed for my stay. The best place to hang out is the bar and the restaurant. Here i guess the entire Alona Beach is meeting. Great food, good drinks, lovely bar staff and good... More

the price was not reasonable. it is expensive compared to the other properties with the same facilities and quality of service. We came at 115pm, but they did not give us a room as the checking in time is 2pm, I understand the rule but it was a low season, the least that they can do is to give a... More

a good place for a few relaxing days, seems to be a good location for divers, they offer food and drinks in a small restaurant and at the beach, the beach itself isn't that impressive; anyway Alona Vida is a good strating point for an excursion to the Lobok River cruise or the Chocolate Hills.

Location wise is just right on the beach, about 5 minutes from the main road, got a lot of selection of restaurants, a place for tourist but not a place for relaxation. asked for 500 bucks for extra person and just give us a mattress not an extra bed. i think the price also is a bit pricey considering it...

Resort is about 5 mins walk from drop-off point at Alona Beach. If u have heavy or wheel luggage, do expect the sandy uneven terrain in order to get to resort because the resort's entrance is really at the beachfront. Consider getting a room towards the back of resort because there'd be loud music every night. Room was nice and... More

Very clean and nice size room but the bed is very hard and it's not really king size bed, it's two twin beds that is made into a king size bed. Refrigerator is too small and you can't use it because it's got cold drinks and beer in it that you'll pay for if you take it. Safe deposit is... More
