The hotel is about a 3-5 min walk to the beach. Price was a lot cheaper than all beachfront accommodations so we settled here instead. The room was okay and moderately clean. Shower water was kinda salty though, I wasn't used to this even if I've been to numerous beach hotels before. What I really liked about this place was... More

Nice and clean place in Panglao, good situation and friendly staff very helpful. Rooms are a bit small, but fresh with aircon and very tidy. Staff can organise tours as well as diving... a must to do in Alona. Go to Balicasac, but Pamilacan island and other dive sites. Food is quite cheap and good for the value to.. I'd... More

We did not get the chance to occupy the bungalows across the street that are much nicer than the regular rooms. Although the hotel is very central (5min walking distance from the beach), we were disappointed with the standards of the hotels for the price (33 usd) No aircon, no breakfast, salted water from the plumbery, very loud : corridor...

The rooms were clean and the aircon good. The place does not have a lobby. There is no place to lounge. The reception is in the same area as the restaurant. In order to sit down, we would need to order something. The beach was not as near as what I have read in the reviews. It is about a... More

Was travelling with friends and we spent a week here. It is basic, but very clean, the rooms are spacious, have a tv and good aircon. Water pressure the best we had while travelling in the Phillipines. Good wifi in all the rooms and the bar at the bottom became our lounge. The girls were always friendly and helpful. We... More

I've traveled extensively and for this much money you would expect at least complimentary continental bfast or at least some coffee. Theres two places, one that has the bar and resto area with bungalows and across the street is a building with rooms. They dont say anything of this when you book it so basically instead of a good ambiance... More
