“Very clean, helpful staff, good beds and hot shower, 200m to Alona Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2011

Arrived late at night by shared taxi total cost 500p from Bohol ferry wharf. Got last room 800p fan or 1500 air cond. I always go for fan rooms as air con bothers me. No insect screens on windows however I used an electric pad insect repellent and bugs did not bother me. No in-room safe. Beds new and very comfortable. Room has a big bench and chairs and outside table to sit and watch the sunset. Rooms face west so get hot late afternoon. Alona Beach is nice but food and accommodation expensive there compared to say Sihanoukville's Ochiteaul Beach in Cambodia, a similar feel to Alona.

There is a jeepney to town from main road 200metres from Villa Almedilla 40 pesos around 7 a.m. Takes around 1.5 hrs to town. Saw another returning around 5 p.m. These are used by locals to get to work. I took one to get back to town for my ferry at 10 a.m. Taxi from jeepney drop-off around 60 pesos to ferry wharf. Try to get early ferry from Cebu as taxis are way too expensive after dark.

Construction of a new level is underway but builders are aware of room guests and noise was minimal in Nov 2011. Should be completed by March 2012. Villa Almedilla is one of the best budget places I have stayed anywhere in Asia.

Room Tip: I stayed upstairs rear room. More good luck than anything. Tell the lovely ladies at reception you n...
