We stayed in Alona beach for one week in April 2013. Lost Horizon Annex is not one of the beachside hotels and it locates itself a little aside of noise and people. Walk to the beach takes only 5 minutes and hotel area is really calm and relaxing. Rooms were clean, quite big and really well equipped, we stayed in Fan Room with kingsize bed. A/C was optional and we decided not to use it, since we had two good fans in there, one in the roof and one on the wall. Only minus is that noises from outside and other rooms were easy to hear.

Rooms are definately worth of money and location, in our opinion, was better than right away on the beach. Hotel staff was friendly, excluding waitressess in restaurant. Food was ok, but there are alot better and cheaper places elsewhere to experience way better food and better service.

3 of us stayed at the Annex in February 2013 and were very pleased with the standard of the rooms. They are clean,comfortable and extremely well equipped. if like me you travel with "gadgets" (phones, cameras, Notebooks, iPads, and so on) it can be very frustrating if your room has just one or two power sockets. The Annex rooms have an abundance of sockets which is a real plus. Aside from that (and more importantly) the bed was very comfortable, the aircon & fans (2 of) worked very well, and the shower warm. All in all a very comfortable room and I will return there. The restaurant as reported by others is rather basic, and the service from the kitchen can be very slow, with food being served luke warm at times.

As of 2013 Feb:

For 1695p we got a king size bed in a fan room. The weather was sunny and hot, but there is a ceiling fan and a rotating wall fan so this was sufficient (although for 300p more you can get A/C and a TV). Mini fridge, coffee, electric kettle, room safe, and best of all for women who travel light but hate always having damp hair in the humid climate a BLOW DRYER!

The room and bathroom are in excellent conditions. Another HUGE highlight for these rooms is that they have plenty of electrical sockets which have built in adapters. Charge away to your hearts content.

The Lost Horizons Annex Restaurant leaves something to be desired. It is rather dead, the breakfast was so-so, and the prices weren't that much cheaper even though it is back off the beach.

I'd stay here again.

Room Tip: We stayed on the first floor. We couldn't see the ocean but for non-AC rooms (i.e. fan rooms) I imagine lower floors are cooler in temperature.

The Lost Horizon Dive Resort Annex, better known as just the Annex is an exceptional hotel. The Staff working there are friendly and their service is remarkable. The Annex's pool is fairly sized but nonetheless clean! The pool is also located next to the bar which is a nice pace to hang out before heading out to explore with friends and very affordable. As for the rooms and bathrooms all I can say is that they are very clean and appear to be relatively new. AC, fans, wifi, tv and lights work great and each room has it's own private balcony. Food, drinks and snacks are extremely well priced as well as good. The Mini-bar in the rooms are a great bargain if you're to lazy to make the walk from your room to the bar. The Annex may not be located directly on the Beach but it is only a 3-minute (timed) walk to the beach. The Annex is however located on the main road or strip that has many great Restaurants & Bars with great local dishes and options such as European/American foods and Beers which are all well priced not to mention the service is great every where. Over all the Annex; Alona Beach and area are a great place to stay. I would recommend it to anyone whether it be a family, couple or solo traveler. Last but not least when it comes to booking land or boat tours get a guide down at the beach so you know what each one offers and you know aren't being ripped off. Also rent any scuba or snorkeling gear on the main beach only considering it's new and well priced. Boat guides will say they also have their own gear on the smaller islands for rent but all the gear is worn out or broken and not to mention twice as expensive then it would have been on the main beach of Panglao.

Overall, the Lost Horizon Annex probably offers the most for your money on Alona Beach and we would definitely return. The hotel building is new, with comfortable bed, flat screen TV, good AC, clean grounds, etc. The staff was friendly and helpful and the happy hour was a good deal. They also helped us book transportation to/from the port and for a day tour of Bohol.

Easy walk to the beach that takes just over three minutes (not as bad as other reviews made it out to be). Also close to many other resaurants and bars off the beach that are good for a change of scenery. Pool was nice, though you'll probably spend most your time in the beach area.

Everything on Alona Beach is walking distance. So, you're best staying at a place like Horzon Annex, saving some money, and walking to any bars/restaurants/activities.

The only downside was that the wifi was spotty. When it worked, it was fast. But, at least 50% of the time we had trouble connecting. Didn't take away from the overall experience, though.
