Special Hotel, with warm and welcoming staff, super tour offers and support from the staff if you have any question, tours are with personel guide in different language available and not focused on touristmus places, nature and secret places.

What a gem! Truly a home away from home. The minute we arrived, we felt like part of the charts-Family. The rooms are very clean and decorated with great attention to detail. That really shows the "ART" in ChARTs. Who ever thinks, that the location (not right on the beach. But that’s just an easy five minutes walk away) is a drawback, should think again, since Charts offers a peaceful, quiet atmosphere that can’t be found on the beach. And the pool provides great easy access refreshment.

For all questions the always sunshine-happy German Mam Sonja and her helpful team have the right answers. And they offer everything – from adventurous island tours to relaxing massages. No wonder that we came back to this little paradise twice on our island-hopping-trip through the Visayas. Not to mention the very fair prices. Overall, we only can recommend it.

The hotel is situated almost at the end of Alona Beach, relatively far away from the beach. Beeing located directly at the main Panglao access street the hotel is very loud due to the heavy traffic. The owner, a German woman is trying to make money fast. Everything offered in the hotel is more expensive than anywhere else in Alona Beach. She is offering also tours and diving, but you might get much better deals in Alona. For example I paid much more than any other guest for a snorkeling tour only because I booked the tour in Charts and the other guests booked it directly in the diving center.

A very friendly, warm and caring resort with good management. The resort is not very big, but it provides a quiet, clean and comfortable atmopshere, and the staffs are very nice, friendly and well-trained. 5 mins walk from the beach, room is clean, tindy and stylish, the aircon is ok. Also the german style breakfast is good and impressed, and the coffee is the best in town.
