I have to confess the room accommodation is good and staffs are very kind. It will be a good choice if you choose to dive in the dive center of the resort. However if you book from a dive shop in Alona beach, it is a challenge to transfer between both destinations. Next time I will stay in Alona beach... More

We booked two rooms for the Cliffside Resort in February 2015 for a tour of Bohol. When we arrived, they only had one room available. The manager Dave tried to do the right thing and found us an additional room at another hotel however it was at another location and not very convenient for our tour that was planned the... More

You get what you pay for, this place is hard to get to and very uncomfortable. It is 800 meters of bumpiness and zero lighting on a path to "paradise". Once you get there the pool and bar is quite nice however the rooms are pretty gross. I don't think I touched one thing in the room. The mattress is... More

The hotel is basic, OK, fair enough, but just about nothing works, the AC is about to explode, plugs don't work, this has to be the place with the worst mattrasses and wooden beams below that, that were falling apart. Simply not worth the money. There are a lot better place in the area at similar or better rates

When you arrive at Cliffside, you can immediately appreciate the ocean breeze and lovely sea view. Aptly named, the bar, restaurant, and pool, are situated on a cliff overlooking the ocean just a kilometer up from the populated Alona Beach. Most of the rooms (the mid-priced ones in which we stayed) overlook the pool. It is just the right size... More

The hotel has an astounding view of the sea. Theplace is relaxing and perfect if you do not want noise from the bar along Alona beach. The downside is that the place is too far from the beach but they offer a service car that takes you near Alona beach. The rooms are spacious however they should've placed more bathroom... More

Nice place and quiet, very relaxing, rooms are ok. They have motorcycles that you can use to stroll around so we drove with it going to busy alona beach ( and dine there since there are more choices and cheaper), hinagdanan cave, dumaluan beach. Be sure to visit pungtud island it has awesome sand bar.

+ The resort is not located on the busy tourist street and it' s very calm and relaxing. They have a great view over the sea and the staff is friendly. - The food could be better and it's also a bit expensive. Probably more suited for 40+ people.

This place could be so much better with a management with interest in service, food and his guests as well as his staff. No one seems to be in charge. The staff are friendly but they do not know what to do.

On a lovely cliff, this neglected filthy hotel sits. We arrived to our ocean view suite which had torn sheets, over used towels, no face towels, no soap and rusty water kettle. No water pressure which at some point was down to a few drops. For over 100 usd they do not even service the room!!!! We arrived late so... More
