The Alona Kew is situated in the centre of Alona Beach, putting you at the heart of all the bars and services. The staff is consistently friendly and helpful, getting you extra things when you need them, and bringing you beach chairs for your comfort. The rooms are modest but clean and functional. The showers are good, and you have... More

Was here for a four-day training program. Function room was quite small for our group of 30, but we were allowed to use other facilities for games that needed more space. Food was good in general, nice beach front dinner location as you could dine inhaling fresh air. Swimming area is more for snorkling as there are lots of corals... More

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
