We had a nice 13 nights stay at Kalipayan. Quite and peaceful garden setting. Thanks Kurt, that you had 2 rooms for us on short notice. Staff is very friendly and attentive. Rooms were ok, with daily cleaning. Good quality towels provided. Soap provided. No complimentary water though. Beds are ok, one was too soft, the other was good. Bed... More

We were here for 2 days, but decided to stay for one more night. You have big rooms, with your own private bathroom, with a shower curtain. The shower is not salt from the sea, but it is some kind of salty water. But since we knew, we bought an extra water bottle. Shower is pretty nice though. They cleaned... More

I was severely disappointed with the place. Agoda had rated this establishment as 3 star when it should only be 1 star. 1. MAJOR POINT. The water for the showers is SEA water and not normal treated water. 2. The area is full of mosquitoes, especially after 4pm 3. Safety Box in room. Obviously that has been used by divers... More

This charming resort is set in beautiful gardens with a pool leading on to.a white sand beach. The family room is very spacious but the en suite bathroom has no ventilation giving the room a persistent smell of drains, the effective air conditioning maybe also responsible as it is set into the bathroom wall. Put this small problem aside and... More

Been there for 3 nights, the resort is quite, far enough from noisy aread, yet walk distance from alona beach. There's a diving center in the resort, a private beach, a beautiful private pool and the staff are super nice. The resort does have a restaurant but I don't recommend eating there. There is plenty for you to eat around... More

Myself and a friend stayed here in April (2016) and we were not impressed with the value for money. The rooms were very basic (no TV) and we were shocked to discover that the bathroom was supplied with salt water (from the sea?!) rather than fresh water. This made brushing your teeth and showering very unpleasant - be warned. I... More

Feels not worth it for the price. Photos in the Internet was so nice but didn't emphasize the water was salty to do my shower for two days. There's no difference swimming in the ocean really. The room is big but no TV at all. Lots of ants in the table and floors. The bed frame is not made of... More

We've been there 4 nights. The rooms are nice. the staff was so generous and caring, helped us every time we needed them (even the night guard). It's a bit far from alona beach center, maybe 10 minutes walk.
