Got some mixed feelings about this one. The good ones: clean, perfect location, nice beach front restaurant, close to the best ice cream bar I've been to in ages. The not so good ones: below average breakfast buffet, bad wifi, room tv very old, staff were just ok (did not seem engaged at all), we got a room without windows... More

Travel time: about 25 mins without traffic from the airport) Transportation: From the airport, there are private vehicles you may book. According to the guard, they are licensed and legal to pick up passengers. Not sure if it's true but since there's no taxi stand, we booked one of these private cars for P400 (9 USD). I heard that the... More

Stayed 4 days in Suite 10, Beachfront, the rooms are dated and not the cleanest, however, the location makes up for it. You will be close enough to the bar to pick up WIFI in the room (when they decide to turn it on) and the bar always seemed dead, noise wasn't an issue. The breakfast buffet sucks, the breakfast...

We first went to Alona Kew in 2004 and it was a good value resort back then. They have expanded since then and this time we travelled as a large family group including 4 kids. The resort were offering a 40% discount if you paid in cash so we took 3 rooms, two suite rooms in the new hotel building... More

I booked the sea view cottage and the location was great but the water pressure was almost nonexistent. That in itself drove me crazy. A few steps out of the door and I was in the ocean, very nice beach for swimming. There are so many eating options along the beach, I am sure you will find something you will... More

We stayed at Alona Kew White Beach Resort for 2 nights in their cottage type accommodation. They have a clean room, nice garden and a medium size swimming pool. The beach is great. It is really a white sand beach. At night, you will find lots of restaurants nearby offering a variety of foods. You can also witness a fire... More

We stayed in Alona Kew for a night after a country side tour of Bohol for a day. Too tired, we just wanted to have a good rest and enjoy the night. Our cottage room was neat but we thought they could have offered more. Since our room was near the shore, we could hear the noise from all the... More

We stayed here for one night and the only good thing going for this hotel is location. Food is so so. Service is ok. The rooms are very old and dated. The bathroom had a ton of ants, the mirror is so old you could not even see yourself, the air conditioning hardly worked. I don't think I'd stay here... More
