Alona Kew is definitely one of the nicer places in Alona Beach. It has a pool and wide grounds for walking. It has everything you might need in a large scale hotel. A pool, a covered hall. It was relaxing to say the least and is right smack in the middle of the stretch of beach. A bit expensive though.... More

After a bad experience in our arrival at Panglao, alona kew saved the day! Without any reservations on a Good Friday, there's an available room and we were allowed to check in early, and given a discount. What more can we ask for? Room is clean and big. Bigger than the other resort we booked in later that week at... More

Location : Good just by the beach.. Beach is white and clean but only in the morning. Afternoon high-tie comes and sea is very shallow with lot of dirt (be careful for sea urchins). Rooms : Below average. Aircon is noisy ; no balcony (smells humid due to wet swimming clothes since windows cannot be open). No Wi-Fi in the... More

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
