We stayed 4 nights at the Golden Palm as part of our honeymoon in the Philippines and highly recommend staying here. It is located just behind the beach - about a 2 minute walk and up some very steep stairs but the quality of the Golden Palm is much higher than those on the beach (unless you have enough money to stay at the Henann!) and also you don't get the late night noise which you can encounter if you stay on the beach (as we did later on during our stay). We witnessed some of the other options situated on the beach as we had only booked for 4 nights, thinking we would go off to another island but we loved Alona so much we decided to stay. Unfortunately the Golden Palm were fully booked so we had to stay elsewhere and witnessed some not very good options along the main beach (one room in particular was more expensive than the Golden Palm and had lots of flies!). We really missed the Golden Palm and wished we'd booked it for longer!
Highlights of the Golden Palm:
1. Friendly service - the staff and owners are great and nothing is too much trouble
2. Good food - we only had a light lunch one day as we ate down at the beach, but the food was good and a nice selection
3. Nice cocktails before going down to the beach in the evening - recommend the Mango Dacquiri!
4. Excellent location, yes when you approach the Golden Palm it looks a bit like a back street alley but once you're through their doors it's a lovely! Beautiful pool and beach bar and only a very short walk to the action of Alona Beach
5. Rooms very clean and bathrooms modern - loved the shower!
6. The owners cute dogs!!!!
Don't hesitate to book the Golden Palm if you're considering a holiday on Alona Beach and forget about staying at the less superior properties on the beach. You pay the same price due to the beach location but for far less quality of rooms!
