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

Alona Vida Beach Resort is located right on a very nice but crowded beach. Forget driving up to the hotel you will have to walk a ways to get there. If you have lots of luggage, as I never do, you will need help negotiating the narrow busy path to the hotel. The rooms were very nice and I took... More

The room was clean, but small. The staff very friendly and accommodating. Excellent location. The air conditioning was not very cold, but worked. Wifi weak in rooms. Ask for a room in the back, otherwise you will hear the noise from the lounge all night. Quite the party atmosphere.

the hotel is located - beach front, we checked in quite late, so from the Alona beach you have to walk along the beach to reach the hotel, but it's not far about less than 5 mins walk, I think. We called them once we reached the loading/unloading area and they send someone to carry our luggages. Complimentary drinks were... More

My husband and I stayed at Alona Vida in one of their superior rooms for 5 nights in April. The location of the hotel is great - right in the middle of the beach within walking distance to all the bars, cafes, and dive shops. The staff are very helpful, and the room was clean and comfortable, with a big... More

The Alona Vida is right on the central part of Panglao beach, with restaurants and bars as well as dive centers right out front - making the location the best part. The rooms (we had a Deluxe, in the back) are large, with basic "island style" furniture, very clean and look exactly like the pictures provided on the web site.... More
