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-

A small boutique but comfortable Inn. Free pickup from airport/port and breakfast. Staff very professional and accommodating. Rooms cozy, quite with good A/C and updated bathrooms with good flow and hot water. Rooms include: cathode ray tv, mini fridge (not stocked) and older style room A/C (which worked comfortably). Staff very responsive: arranged laundry, friendly evening security, waiters attentive, any... More

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.

"Best Value & Comfort for your Money" -one of their tagline in their site. Indeed best value and comfort for a low-average cost. Very hospitable and nice staff. Helped us with everything from the time we arrived till we left the next morning. They even helped us find a church for our INC friends. Very good wifi connection. Small rooms... More

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
