After Tagbilaran we were going to Alona beach in Panglao..but our taxi brought us to Dumaluan Beach Resort! Well, did see the nice beach and the area and decited to stay
here! We had a superion room but the first night was terrible because of small ants every-
where in our bed! Next day they were poisoned by the staff..so it was ok! The beach was super white sand and we enjoyed walking along the beach collecting shells etc. Restau-
rant had not any specialite menu, so we decited to eat in the grill near the hotel many times!
Pool was quite small but it was close to the rooms..so often did go there instead the sea.
Staff was not very helpful, we thought they rather had their own talks or with their favou-
rite customers, but we didn`t mind! Rather stay in the good company with each others!
Anyway, we would surely recommend this resort - it`s worth for your money! (Not very
exspensive endeed!)

We loved the beachfront of DBR 2 and the room was spacious, clean and furnishings were new. Hotel food is great as you have a good selection of different dishes to try specially if you will be staying for more than a night.

Hotel/Dining staff are honest and sincere. They just need additional training on hotel service. Bathroom in the rooms can be improved to separate shower area from the rest to avoid wet floors after a shower.

Overall, stay is good value for money and great for family with kids.

We stayed 13 nights at Dumaluan Beach Resort. The first night in a superior deluxe room was horrible because of the mattress, but we changed the next day into an executive room, which was better equipped (with fridge and TV). Food at the restaurant was really good, especially the grilled squids and fishes. Breakfast was ok for us, because as Germany we don't really like eating rice for breakfast, but bread and jam was also offered.
You must have to do a snorkeling tour to Balicasag! It is a wonderful experience. You can rent a boat at the hotel for 2.500 PHP for a day. And don't forget to book a Bohol Tour.

Before the moment our tour guide drop us at Dumaluan Beach Resort. He warned us. My answer is were fine. Im braced up! Ive read not so good reviewSSS about the place anyway.

Reservation process- 50% percent down Payment was settled thru bank transfer to secure the room. Tried to inquire via email but no reply. (Which happened to my officemates a year ago as well) I need to call them a number of times to talk about the reservation.

Rooms - just ok. Standard twin size bed, air conditioned, spacious. Just good for the price for a beach front Panglao Resort.

Comfort room tube pipes are leaking, every time we open the faucet or shower water will flood the whole toilet and bath section. Informed the front desk right away but need to remind them that maintenance staff need to look at it a.s.a.p for us to use it.

Swimming pool is ok, But the hotel restaurant is terrible. Foods are not tasty. Grilled squid turned to be a stone hard. (is it really hard to grill 5 inches of squid? I don’t think so..) Waiters are not attentive. Think about repeating orders three to four times for them to get it. Whew! A nearby restaurant is way way way Much Better! Breakfast, Lunch and dinner is available as well.

Bad experiences cant ruined our panglao vacation, morning came and you can experience the beauty of the beach, white sand, a peaceful atmosphere. Beach beds are available.

What I like about this resort is its just a short walk a way from Bohol Beach Club, actually they just share the same shore (check my different review about that)
It’s a nice beach location, Dumaluan can go a long way if the management can educate the whole resort staff on how to work on a resort. Resort 101 please. A new system on how to run a resort and how to gain satisfied returning guests should be implemented.

If you guys are looking for a standard place to stay, and enjoy the beautiful white sand beach of Panglao and the country side tour of Bohol, for the price this is not a bad place to stay. (STAY= just a room to sleep during the night)

If you want a banana behind the breakfast buffet or a mango on display they charge you extra. You're limited to 2 towels per room so if you and your roommate want to go to the beach the bath towel has to become the beach towel and then when you want to have a shower after being on the beach...to bad.you have to use the same ones. Poor room design - no hooks or shelf in the bathroom. No chair in the room except for the recliner on the balcony. The tv was fixed to the wall and couldn't be turned towards the bed which was 90 degrees from it.
