Owners are fantastic, the grounds are impeccable, and honestly the nicest, not overstated landscaping in the Philippines. This spot is especially nice if you have a toddler as the owners are kind to kids, and there are a couple toys available to use. Oh, and I should mention, the place is QUIET, and only has a handful of rooms, and... More

First of all do not mistake the place as a hotel. Consider it as a big rest-house near Alona Beach. In fact, our guide do not know this place it took us a long time finding it as it is a private place. Entering road to this place is small, rough and easily flooded when it rains. Location wise it...

We booked a room and airport pick-up in advance. The path for car is somewhat bad, filled with water. The location is good, no more than 5 min. to the beach. We took dinner when we just arrived, the taste is good, especially the steamed fish and ice cream. The waiter was nice. We booked one day tour to Bohol... More

My stay was quite ok except that I felt the management favors foreigner than local tourist which is quite descriminating. However room cleanliness and food were superb . Cost was also reasonable except that staffs are undermanned . Pool seems not regularly maintained and jacuzzi is seldom used when being requested. Wifi is too slow and only available in pool...

I have mixed feelings about this hotel. The room was large and clean and comfortable. WIFI was a bit dodgy and took several attempts to get it workingand only near the bar. The owner is English, and travels home a fair bit. I think he puts too much faith in his staff and needs to be a bit more hands... More

This hotel is perfectly made to match the surrounding with its garden landscape. Rooms are uber comfortable and food is much more affordable than eating beach front. Pretty delicious too. Accessible to breach front with a three min walk to all other restaurants, and other accommodation and activities. Most of all, peaceful hotel.

Our family stayed here overnight from Dec 24-25, and we enjoyed every second of it! Golden Palm is a small resthouse type of hotel, which the owners manage and run themselves. All the staff were helpful and friendly, and attended to our needs. The food was delicious and reasonably-priced. We loved how quiet and secure the place was. We only... More

A great little spot, 2 mins on foot from the beachfront. We were upgraded to the Presidential Suite. It was actually fit for a President. Really luxurious with massive beds and a beautiful bathroom. 5 stars for that alone. The swimming pool was also great, and that made up for a slightly disappointing beach. The gardens are also beautiful, the... More
