Bohol, a province in the Philippines east of Cebu, is the home of Alona Beach where most tourists head, but there is more to Bohol and this inn is a perfect place to base trips to the Chocolate Hills or Tarsier Monkey sanctuary, as well as to the Alona area beaches nearby. We have read often that hotels in the... More

Excellent location---For those who enjoy a nice walk, you can walk to the seaport/airport (the El Portal is right about in the... More

Nothing to address about my last visit here. Service, food, the entire staff...... what can I say. Everything was truly exceptional. Value for your money, as stated by previous reviews. Everything is near by. I would definitely come back. -Much Love-

We stayed here around November 2010. The inn is very close to the airport so they have free transfers. The room is sufficient for our stay. Clean and really affordable. Recommended if you need a good place to sleep after a whole day of touring.

Checked in July 24, 2013 and July 28, 2013. Reservation: I reserved here because of the good reviews that I read here in tripadvisor. Just give them a call and they will reserve a room for you. Location: We arrived in Tagbilaran at around 7:30pm. We rode a tricycle and I guess, most tricycles know the place. It's not hard... More
