Quiet, relaxing. Beach chairs on rooftop. Good food there, and at others nearby (Isis at one end for Thai and Alona Tropical's Baybayou on the... More

Many beach front eateries to choose from. I love this place as it is a relaxing place to stay. The white sand beach is very clean... More

Hayahay Resort is located directly on the beach. Clean rooms, very friendly staff. Good food in the restaurant. Restaurant is on the beach and upstairs in the hotel. Sometimes a bit noisy from the neighbour resort.

Brought my mom to Bohol for a short holiday and stay at Hayahay! Glad we were in the middle of where the fun is. Music every night, BBQ food and fire dancers. The staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. We booked the countryside tour with the resort and it was amazing too! They've got special packages for room and dives,... More

I really need a lot to rate a place as poor but to me, Genesis divers, especially the Guest House, deserves nothing more. I have not much to say when it comes to the diving part, although I've been surprised that my certification level was not checked. I wouldn't qualify their equipment as in good condition, far from that. Accommodation... More

We wanted a place along Alona Beach and tried this resort. We were after comfortable sized clean rooms and this resort provided such. For the price, I would say it was a great value. Even though there are a lot of cheaper small resorts along Alona, their rooms were new compared to the other resorts in the area. Cleaning of... More

I have dove with this dive center 2 years in a row. Staff is professional helpful and caring. Both Noel and Junior as my dive guides were top notch. Equipment rental was good. Worst part was leaving. They serve great food at night on the beach. Thai food. Worth a visit for both activities.

Stayed at the Hayahay, as far as Philippine hotels in outer provinces go its pretty good. I have stayed at hotels all over Philippines outer provinces and for the price range I think it's pretty good. I got a room with aircon and the aircon worked fine...only draw back was there was only a sheet in our room, no blanket.... More

I stayed for four nights with three friends. As the rooms only have a bed for two guests, we purchased a mattress for myself. At first, I was hesitant to share the same cost as my friends with a bed, but the mattress was the same one my friends had, but just smaller. They even made the bed, gave me... More
