We stayed here in November 2014 for 3 nights. We got the Sea View Room (room 10) which was nice. We liked that it had a front sitting room, nice king sized bed, big tv, etc. The bads: Shower/sink had gross tasting water. It was hard to feel clean when washing with salt tasting water (especially after just being in... More

The hotel situation is great, far-enough from the artificial Alona beach (which is really too touristic), over a cliff: the view is wonderful along the swimming pool and restaurant. The room (see view) is large and beautiful, the bed is huge and confortable, all the staff was very friendly.

Value for money except for the stale smell in room friendly staff, nice cliff view, room comes with a motorbike Overall was average as the room (room 4) was having an odor or flavor suggestive of mold or bad stale smell. I believe the stale smell comes from the toilet sewage system. i am not sure abt other room. the... More

To preface - we stay in a LOT of hotels from 0 star to 5 star. We also advise travel businesses on improving revenue/cost. If I owned this I could make significant savings and revenue increases within 48 hrs.. We stayed 12 nights here because it was the best at the price and it's shortcomings we lived with. The good:...

Me and my friend Frida are backpacking and have stayed at this resort for more days that we planned. The reason for that is that we love this place so much we can't really leave! Firstly it's low season, meaning the price is half off. Secondly, the staff is truly amazing, so friendly and helpful, especially Jo-jo. When living here... More

If you are for diving, this place can be a very good option for divers due to the proximity of the dive operator shop. The view was really great from your accommodation. They also have an affordable restaurant which serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. The amenities were basic. The place was so serene. Transportation can be arranged for a fee.... More

The pictures of this place look great. When we finally reached the resort after an hour or so on a tricycle from the airport, i decided to overlook the white lies about location because i was in paradise. That feeling didn't last long. The first taste of disillusion was the ants in the bedroom. Secondly, the pool which looks so... More

Our stay in cliffside was good. The pool and view is fantastic and the distance from Alona beach is not an issue for a couple because it is easy enough to jump on the provided motorbike, families have a little more difficulty. The food is ok and the prices are comparable to Alona beach and Boracay however more expensive then... More

I admit it my mistake but then the web site actually really said " We’re only 3 minutes from the buzz of Alona Beach with its vibrant cafes and bars and of course, the beautiful Bohol Island is there waiting for you". So i thought 3 minutes is three minutes and that´s it, and booked a room because I believed... More
