My partner and I took advantage of their promo. P4888 a night with RT transfers. Added extra to avail of their Spa and Dine. They have a very wide and long shore and somewhat clean if not for the usual water plants washed ashore. The food is superb (just be ready for the price) but what I like about it was there's no F&B tax nor service charge! Happy hour (alcoholic beverages) all-day. I would choose this resort instead of those in the Alona beach. Worth every peso you would spend.

We stayed here for 5 days with my family (4 kids) and we didn't mind not having any tour around Bohol because our stay here was definitely amazing! Everyone was so helpful and proactive, always with a smile on their faces. They've been assisting me for months before our trip because of lockdown situations from our place and travel restrictions and they helped me all throughout. Hands down to the customer support. If you need a place that is far from the crowd with A+ service and instagrammable spots, this is where you should check-in. Every corner is picturesque. Things you can improve on: Restaurant food is very delicious but a bit pricey. Breakfast selection is limited. We had our couples massage at the beachfront and it was amazing! It was the best we've had by far. The only thing is that we didn't get to totally relax because they were not able to control the noise from people swimming right in front of the massage area. We were there for an hour only so we would appreciate it more if they were able to control it even just for the duration of the service. What we liked about this resort: The service was amazing. The resort itself is close to perfection. Overall, our stay was incredible and we plan to go back here. We really fell in love with this resort. Thank you, South Palms!

The most beautiful beach resort in bohol💓 Everything is perfect from coconut trees to fine white sand beach. I highly recommend their Spa and Dine, VERY WORTH IT! They also serve tasty fresh and healthy food but a little bit pricey. The best part is that they have Excellent and very Hospitable Staffs, special thanks to Ms. Charmaine, Ms. Synder, Mr. Christian, Mr. Jestoni, Mr. JP, Sir Namata, Maam Nelda and Maam Yoli. See you next time!

I stayed at south Palms resort for 3 nights at beach view rooms. The hotel seems to be old and not renovated. There is warm water a bit salty in the shower, for drinking they provide 2 bottle of water. Food is very poor and very limited in the breakfast as well as the menu and its always cold and tasteless. The hotel is located far from restaurants and shops. Hotel has a long Beach of limestone power and sand. Hotel staff are friendly and helpful. The price is too high for a 3 star hotel, however they call it 4 star.
