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

Made reservations last december for our family vacation in April. Communication was clear. I requested for early check in since we will be arriving early. It was noted. I asked for pick up from airport at 9am. Our flight arrived 30 minutes early and the van wasn't there yet. It should be standard customer service for the hotel pick up... More

It has a great location in the famouse Alona Beach. The room was big and clean, they gave us free fresh fruits and mineral water. The hotel has a great bar on the beach, which from my point of view is the best of the beach (for drinks). The breakfast was ok. From my point of view it's not value... More

A value for money hotel in a great location on the beach. The hotel was spotless, thanks to the German day manager. We had a fruit bowl in the room every day and extra towels and mosquito room spray we requested were provided without question. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Food was great, we didn't eat anywhere else in... More

Make sure to chose a resort right at the Alona Beach. Otherwise you'll need to rent a motorbike to get to the beach. The hotel rooms of Alona Vida are very clean, you get fresh towels every day, the bath room is big, air con works perfectly, there's even a TV and a balcony .. And of course the resort... More

I can recommend this resort. The room has a good size and all amenities what you need. The resort is very clean and has a good restaurant. You can organize your trips at the reception. The staff is very friendly. Live music every evening (w/o sunday)... can be a little bit loud in the room.

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
