This was our last stop on our Philippines trip and we were really disappointed that we ended it here. The compound itself was pretty but the atmosphere was cold and unfriendly, we felt like unwanted house guests! The general staff went through the usual pleasantries to a point but with a lot less sincerity than anywhere else we had stayed,... More

Dear Allwhowander125, I just read your review of our place and we really feel saddened that this is the feeling you had during your stay and wanted to apologize about the fact you did not feel welcome here, the insects and all the rest.

All the accommodation was in individual cottages catering for all types of traveller, ranging from backpackers to families and older couples. Breakfast was served on the veranda and there are many excellent restaurants within easy access. Sylvia & Roberto made our stay very memorable, offering helpful advice for local activities and tours.

The room was gorgeous; the atmosphere was lovely; the staff were so helpful, friendly and accomodating; the information, activities and tours provided was extensive; and the breakfasts were delicious. Plus, the location, only slightly away from the busy Alona Beach, was perfect.

Alumbung is an excellent little find. In a country where decent service is a rare thing, Sylvie and Roberto's personal touch excelled at making our stay as comfortable and seamless as possible. We had booked a package stay for 4 nights. It was so nice to have breakfasts delivered outside our Bali hut in the mornings. The tours were good,... More

Hello Nick, Thanks a lot for the kind words, glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Sorry for the Mag-Aso fall trip but it was only closed because of the heavy rain this area had experienced the day before. Hope to see you again one day in Alumbung, Sylvie and Roberto More

Alumbung was the first place we stayed on the Philippines and I am very glad we did. We booked one of the cottages and it was cute and what we expected for the price. Roberto was always there and very helpful. You can order breakfast the night before and they serve it to the cottage the next morning, something we... More

We spent 3 nights from Christmas Eve with in charming Alumbung. Sylvie and her family looked after us well, arranging an airport pick up and booking a Christmas Eve buffet in a local hotel. They introduced us to Habal Habal, the best way to get around and gave great recommendations on where to go, what to do etc. They were... More

From our flight from Manila, we arrived before 9am at the Tagbilaran airport and went straight to our city day tour.... More

Sylvie and Roberto warrmly welcomed me in this very charming place located in an authentic Filipino barangay,just a few hundreds of meters away from Aluna beach. I booked the two storeys little cottage which was ideal to relax after intense days of diving around in Bohol. Definitively a place to stay!

We really enjoyed our stay at Alumbung. Sylvie and her husband were really friendly, helpful and flexible. The cottage was lovely and absolutely clean. Breakfast in the garden, quiet poolside... a little paradise!
