We stayed here for a night cause we did not want to travel through the stormy weather that day. The room that we booked was Room 10 and we didn't expect the room to be that good at an affordable price. It had a hot and cold shower, a safety box, hangers and a good bed to sleep to. The... More

We came to Bohol to see the Chocolate Hills on the anniversary day of Bohol earthquake 2013 which destroyed lot of churches, houses road etc and killed many people. We thought it will be a good idea to stay in Jagna for the trip to Chocolate Hills. But it didnt. Jagna is 64 lm from Tagbiliran seaport where we landed... More

We booked via Agoda £15.40 per night - stayed 4 nights - including breakfast for 2 after checking their website (see later). Check-in was fast and professional. We were given a double room (R11) with safe (too small for a 15" laptop) wardrobe, AC and TV, wifi was sometimes available but only guaranteed in the cafe area. Room was clean... More

This pension house is a few blocks from the highway and close to the pier with public transportation readily available. The rooms are simple but nice and clean. House keeping was very good and done very quickly. WiFi is only available in the lobby and cafe area. Some of the hotel staff are deaf, but it is not a problem.... More

This is situated about two blocks going inner passing the street beside the Jagna Church. As you move ahead go right at about 100 meters. This place is just close to the gate of the Jagna Central School. This is where i finished my elementary schooling. The services of this pension house extended to a catering and a nice restaurant....

My Gf and I stayed for one night at the IDEA Pension house. Like any place I stay I will always look at the condition and cleanliness of the bedroom beforehand. I was impressed with the Deluxe room we saw - spotless. In addition I thought the restaurant offered a good selection - both Filipino and western food. A good... More

This is a nice place. We believe the negative reviews posted here are somewhat unfair to the IDEA Pension House. Given the cost, the IDEA Pension House and Garden Cafe are great values. The staff is very nice -- everyone we dealt with was pleasant and attentive. The rooms are clean and neat. The bed was comfortable. The food is... More

I have read the reviews on the Jagna Pension House and find them a bit contrived. Honestly this place is undeniably affordable and comfortable, it's not the Ritz, but it's not pretending to be either. It's a simple little pension house (motel) in a typical Philippine town, it's an authentic experience for any traveler seeking it out. My family and... More
