Decided to try El Portal Inn because of the good reviews I've read from Tripadvisor. I immediately checked their site and found that their rate is affordable. I chose double delulxe queen room for P 1,075. Made a reservation through email. We were greeted by a very friendly staff named Sai. All of their staff are nice, helpful and accommodating... More

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

Reservation: Asking about rooms and tours is quick and easy. Emails are replied to within 24 hours, and no reservation fee is asked. I reserved so many months in advance (we stayed there this week, but I made a reservation around Sept. last year), and I was given reminders a month and a week before our scheduled arrival. Changes about... More

2nd times a charm with El Portal. Once again, I didn't experience any hiccups or negative vibes. Staff is very helpful and they do make you feel like your part of the family. Room, once again, was clean. Air-con wasn't needed, although we know it blows cold (in case for those who complain how hot it is in Philippines). Its... More

I expected good service, clean rooms and courteous staff. I got more. The staff are all so nice and warm. The room, though small, was adequate and had simple amenities, but was more than what I was expecting. The service is good, the food is good and presented well. the driver who picked us up in the pier made sure... More

Upon arrival, we were greeted with the standard "no rooms available except the deluxe" (this was a common trend in Thailand), so we took their deluxe for 1,050 Pesos. The room sat right on top of the road so was very noisy most of the night. It also had a collection of ants that were waiting to come out and... More

I found the staff very welcoming and helpful. They picked us up at the ferry port, gave us a very clean room and had a driver waiting to take us on the tour of Bohol. The room was spacious with 2 beds and nice bathroom and working tv. The staff works hard to keep it clean. The driver they provided... More
