I really enjoyed my stay at the Reggae Guesthouse; to be honest, there wasn't anything to complain about. Rooms (cottages) are in Filipino style and it adds to the charm. The rooms don't have aircon, but trust me you don't need one, especially at night! When it comes to the location, it was just around 10 minutes walk to the... More

First - the staff here are lovely. Chacha is a wonderful lady who is a joy to talk to. Paul and the other French owners are super accommodating and very friendly and fun-loving. I guess I am getting a little old for basic accommodation. It is clean, but very basic. Essentially a hut with a bed, fan and shower. It... More

maybe it was just bad timing - looking at the other reviews that tell who cool this place is - but there were several things that impacted our review negatively.. first of all, when we arrived, we spend some 20 minutes trying to wake-up a receptionist, and during our stay there. To be fair, the French owners did try to... More

We were supposed to stay here for two night but the place was so nice and the people so friendly that we decided to stay four more nights. There are only about 6/7 huts all facing a beautiful garden and at the head you will find the bar and breakfast area. I especially like to thank Chacha for being so... More

We originally booked 3 nights but ended up staying for 5. The rooms and gardens are perfect for travellers wanting to chill out. Rooms have all you need, communal area and bar are great at night to meet people and the beer is cheap. If you are a backpacking and looking for somewhere to stay in Alona Beach look no... More

My partner, Fish, and I prefer adventures and cheapskating over too much comfort and boredom, which hotels ever so willingly provide. I first read about Reggae Guesthouse here in tripadvisor. Most reviews raved about how great the place is and how awesome the owners, Bilbo and Chaati, are. Fish and I decided to try it out and book a room... More

I stayed for 8 nights at reggae guesthouse. The bungalows are big and clean, very nice decorated and have all you need. Very good value for the price - especially at Alona Beach! All bungalows have even a small terrace where you can sit and enjoy the beautiful garden they have. Its a 10min walk to the main beach so... More

This place is excellent, really chilled out, walking distance to the beach and the rooms were comfy and clean. However the thing that makes this place really special are the people who own and work there. The owners are a French couple who just want to make sure you have the best time in panglao. They helped us organise a... More
