My mate and I stayed at the Alona Studios for a week and found it to be a decent enough base from which to explore the Alona Beach area. The rooms were modest but sizable (WiFi available for free, which is a rarity in the Philippines) and the pool was in good shape when we visited. The bar has a... More

Spoilt by the fact they have no idea who is staying, and for how long. It appears that people are allowed to stay as long as they like despite the fact that others have booked and paid well in advance for rooms that are occupied when you arrive. The owner Michael doesn't have the customer service skills to sort problems... More

This hotel has a simple reservation system. They seem to accept everyone, but every day they have to turn away pre paid customers. You can meet the owner in the bar every morning sipping a couple of beers and ask for your towles or complain about the dirty pool. But nothing will happen. This could be a very nice hotel,... More

There is nothing extra-ordinary about the place. The staff were courteous. The ambience was nice. The room was spacious and walls were clean. The AC wasnt powerful enough to keep the room cold. The bed was comfortable. If you need to post your pics and/or chech your work mail, internet access is readily available. Be proactive in making friends with... More

Alona studios are a 10-15min walk away from the beach. We knew about the location and we don't mind walking so this was no problem. We had a nice and spacious family room with a terrace. The room was equipped with a water boiler and a fridge as well as a sink. There were also some plates and cups. The... More

Firstly we booked from agoda and when we arrived late, we were told they had overbooked and the owner said he would find a place comparable within the area. What we received was a very poor small room no where near the quality that we expected for our money. I said maybe you can take care of us, with a... More
