Sierra Madre Beach Resort
Ranked #63 of 104 Panglao Island B&B and Inns
Reviewed August 19, 2013

I can't say anything about the rooms in the resort, but diving with Sierra Madre was spectacular. We had our own dive master (for the two of us) because our level was between the other groups. He had a great pace, without rushing, and spotted TONS of wildlife, including a turtle hiding on the reef. The center is also really willing to negotiate a bit on prices, so if you're doing more than one dive, ask for a discount. For more on what we saw, read our trip report: http://erohisms.com/some-things-you-can-only-see-in-bohol/

One of our most enjoyable dives to date!

Stayed: June 2013, traveled as a couple

had an early reservation for 3 rooms through a friend in panglao..
it was confirmed accordingly and payment will be made on our arrival..

so we arrived very tired in a beautiful boracay-like night life of alona beach,panglao...
then.."what? only 2 rooms for the 8 of us?".. the other room was given to other guests :(

in fairness to the lady in charge, she accompanied the boys to adjacent hotels to look for available accommodation.. and we, the girls, were left on their diving shop, with 4 people drinking and smoking on the same table we're into :(

we patiently waited for a staff to accompany us to our room---for 30 minutes! my friends took the idle time on taking pictures around to "kill the time" in layman's term. finally, the lady arrived and informed us that the boys got a room 3 hotels from ours, and she was surprised that we're still outside, clumpy. she was misunderstood by the other staff :(
i fell asleep past 2am.. when the night singing & dancing subsided....zzzzzz...

the room was basically clean, basic mattress, basic H&C bath.. good enough for a budget traveler..we're opt for the island, not the place to stay so basics are very okay :) we expected that our room/hotel is along the shoreline-nope it's not. the hotel is located along alona beach but their rooms are facing towards the rooms of the other hotel. it's like an apartment. what's facing the beach is their dive shop, it's the hotel's frontline.

Basics are good to us, what we do not like is the staff. we're not treated as guests, maybe because we are LOCALS :( and we're not DIVERS.... :(
i say so because their japanese guest was treated so well...

we packed at 6am for our island tour/check out.. we have to wait for the lady- she was still asleep, she has the official receipt (we need the OR)..we cant wait for her morning smile, we have to go.. we were given a hand written receipt :(

though we had a bad time on the hotel staff, it doesn't spoiled our splendid swimming in panglao island and our great escapade in bohol :)
