We stayed there for a few nights and were not blown away by the hotel. We did like their 20peso beers, pool to cool off in and easy access to bars and restaurants along the beach. The pool only has two chairs to sit around so it isn't really a hangout place, just a good place to cool off at.... More

The best value beach front resort I found so far right there on Alona beach. Here's why: - As I've said, it's a beach front and it's on the center of Alona beach.. just beside the other popular Trudis Place. - Has its own diving center for diving enthusiasts. - Has its own bar and resto overlooking the sea. Menus... More

I am glad you enjoyed you stay and as far as the minor discrepancies we have recheck the air con to ensure proper cooling. We also repaired the faulty handle on the toilet. I hope you will decide to visit us again in the future.... More

My reservation with this hotel went well. It was high season and the rooms were limited since most of it were booked already. Economy room is okay for budget traveler but I don't recommend it for family unless you don't have a choice, (like me). Water from the faucet is salty so it's not comfortable every time you will brush... More

I'd read the fairly mixed reviews on this site and was not sure what to expect. I was diving with Philippine Fun Divers (recommended) next door so convenience was part of the reason for my stay. I was in one of the Deluxe Rooms and breakfast was included. Overall for the price this was a pretty good deal (I booked... More

I tried to make a reservation on their website and the form kept failing with different errors. I emailed them with the full information, expecting them to just handle the reservation over email but instead they tell me to try the form again. We talk back and forth a few times, with me showing screenshots of the errors. Eventually I... More

Stayed at Suite Room May 19 to 21, 2014. The only issue with the whole stay is that the hotel management does not care what we feel with their renovation... Did not advise that there are renovation next rooms... Noisy and messy and smelly (fresh cement). We could have complained but we don't want to ruin our stay more... To... More

The rooms were very spacious and clean. The location of the Resort is perfect, on the beach but not noisy. Staff weren't very helpful when we tried to ask for information regarding where to go to the beach but other than that we had a great time. And the restaurant/bar area is really nice too.

We stayed here for 5 days. We stayed in the modern deluxe room, ground floor #3 facing the pool, which was a good location. We had good wifi as well. The room was roomy, no real complaints except for the towels. They only give you 2 towels(one per person), so if you use your towel at the pool or after... More

We stayed here for 5 days and found it to be the perfect choice. We had debated between Lost Horizon and the place at the end of the beach and are very glad we chose here (the other place is too far from anything). It's right next to the main center of Alona Beach activity (restaurants, etc) without being in... More

This hotel is literally right on the beach; when we went to snorkel, the boat picked us up about 20 feet from where we were having breakfast at the hotel. There are also plenty of restaurants and shops within walking distance so you can entertain yourself at night without having to get a cab.
