Alona Studios Hotel a quick walk from the white sands of Panglao Beach shoreline! Furnished rooms featuring terraces with garden view coozy in its style!

The rooms are nice and big. The location is quiet and peaceful, a 10-minute walk from alona beach. Downside for this hotel is for me the cleaning. We stayed there 3 nights and they didn't clean our room at all.

At first glance a nice clean modern building in an out of the way ( read far from the beach) location. Alona studios is actually two locations at each end of a quiet dead end street. When I arrived the only person on duty was behind the bar near the entry.. The check in process was laughable and it set...

My mate and I stayed at the Alona Studios for a week and found it to be a decent enough base from which to explore the Alona Beach area. The rooms were modest but sizable (WiFi available for free, which is a rarity in the Philippines) and the pool was in good shape when we visited. The bar has a...

Spoilt by the fact they have no idea who is staying, and for how long. It appears that people are allowed to stay as long as they like despite the fact that others have booked and paid well in advance for rooms that are occupied when you arrive. The owner Michael doesn't have the customer service skills to sort problems...

This hotel has a simple reservation system. They seem to accept everyone, but every day they have to turn away pre paid customers. You can meet the owner in the bar every morning sipping a couple of beers and ask for your towles or complain about the dirty pool. But nothing will happen. This could be a very nice hotel,...

There is nothing extra-ordinary about the place. The staff were courteous. The ambience was nice. The room was spacious and walls were clean. The AC wasnt powerful enough to keep the room cold. The bed was comfortable. If you need to post your pics and/or chech your work mail, internet access is readily available. Be proactive in making friends with...
