We had the family room (1 queen, 3 singe beds) plus 1 extra bed for only 2200 per night. The room was spacious. They only have 5 rooms so it is really peaceful and quiet. There is also a small pool which we had all by ourselves since there are no other guests when we stayed there. The location is... More

I enjoyed my short stay at the Billabong. My room had 1 queensize and 1 single bed, aircon, TV and minibar. The bar/restaurant has TV and a pool table. Although perhaps sometimes a little noisy from passing traffic, this is popular with locals, especially on a Thursday, as well as with guests staying in the rooms. They serve a good... More

Stayed at Billabong back in 2008. Food was good, bar was well stocked and had a nice HD tv where they would play Pink Floyd videos and F1 races on Sunday. Rooms were spacious and clean. Service was great. While its not on the beach, Alona Beach is just down the road where you can rent a scooter or snorkel... More

For the price and the service,it suits me and my wife to the ground. This is our third time to stay there for one month each year. I'm a cripple and when I said to Lanie (the owner) that I was in trouble in showering and getting in and out of the toilet she had no hesitation in putting permanent... More

If you’re planning to stay here in Billabong forget it... I mean it... They don't know anything about "GOOD QUIALITY" customer service they only care about is your money. When we arrive at the hotel we are somewhat disappointed because usually when you arrive at a hotel the attendants will greet you like Good Afternoon or Good Morning and they... More

Overview. We were in Panglao, Bohol to visit Family and Friends. We stayed from 3rd-22nd April 2009. The hotel was used primarily for us as a base. Though we did sleep every night in the hotel. The hotel is 2min by car from Alona Beach or 10min walk. I was not so interested in the beach so the swimming pool... More
