A cheaper alternative at the Alona Beach Area... I suggest the hotel owner get a decent reception area with a FRONT DESK staff who's capable of the job 24/7. Also, getting around the small hotel can be confusing. The premium cabins take the left side while those with Deluxe takes the right side outside the resto and deli shop. Quite... More

We are a big group of 14 persons consisting of adults, teenagers, couples. We stayed in four different rooms. Staff accommodated our different requests. Enjoyed the pool in early morning and at night. There is a short cut going to alona beach by passing thru another resort. However we find the cooking fee a little expensive. Other than that, no...

I was with my family and got room 17 in the second floor. It's clean and has a kitchen which I really liked. The hotel is by the road, Ester A. Lim drive, so we didn't have to walk far to go to it. It's 2 minutes to the beach, passing thru Alona Tropical. Daily, they clean our room, replace... More

Good value considering the standard and location. Not on the beach but thankfully guests at this resort were allowed to take a shortcut through a neighbouring resort, so it really just took two minutes. Was at the quiet part of the beach which was nice (at the end) also a very child friendly beach! The room itself was very basic,... More

Our family stayed here at the end of July for about 5 nights so that we could get our diving licenses. Although the hotel is not directly on the beach, access to the beach was easy and convenient. Our room was big with a large bathroom, however, contrary to what some of the previous reviewers said, not all rooms have... More

I stayed here for three nights on their promo rate of 1500 pesos. The room was fantastic, comfortable bed, very clean, balcony overlooking the pool. They have hot/cold water at the end of the hallway for guests. I would recommend tiptop for the price and location, it's a bit quieter being a 5 minute walk to alona beach. Also CU... More

We stayed here for 3 days and 2 nights. Booking was a breeze via email. All emails were answered promptly and politely. We made a reservation by depositing PhP1500 via their BPI account. I really liked this hotel! It's on par with budget hotels we've stayed at in other SEA countries. I usually find Filipino hotels a tad overpriced but... More

Found this property here in Tripadvisor. Based on the reviews, I chose this to spend an overnight in Panglao. The resort is not well known as our rented transportation never heard about it. But the location is easy to find. They have a big billboard sign right before you enter the road going to the property. Indeed, the place is... More

I stayed here for 4D/3N last March and didn't encounter any problem throughout. The property is quite small but the rooms were spacious, clean, well equipped and reasonably priced! There's a small pool right in the middle of the hotel and a restaurant adjacent to it. They didn't have a beach front but is just a few minutes away from... More
