“Great place to stay in Bohol”
Reviewed March 7, 2010

Very charming and well-located place (right on Alona Beach in Panglao Island). We got a standard bungalow which was literally steps away from the water! They have their own restaurant that serves pretty good Thai food (and other types as well). The staff was wonderful. We had a great stay and would definitely stay here again!

We traveled with no relatives in Bohol but ISIS bungalows make us feel that we're home. Foods are great and the staffs are really friendly and approachable. They have a free wifi connection as well. The rooms were nice, clean and affordable.
The place is great if you want to have a good vacation. If you want to go to Panglao, I'll recommend ISIS bungalows.

We spent 10 days and 9 nights in paradise! This place is absolutely beautiful and the service is A-1. What more can I say? Rooms were very clean and the food was delicious. Very near to all the happenings on Alona Beach. Many activities to choose and live bands almost nightly at one of the beach front restaurants. I would highly recommend staying here especially if it is your first visit to Bohol. First impressions are everything and we will be back!

We booked this hotel online with their website pictures and description and these reviews to go on.The pictures and reviews are bang on.Very clean rooms and cheap($3000-4000 )pesos a night depending on the room.They could only fit us in for 4 nights of our 6 night stay which was a disapointment as we didnt want to leave this great little hotel.The chef(i called her Mom) and one of the waiters (Big Mike) were great.We went on a dolphin watching tour one day and they even found us a cooler,made us sandwiches and packed it with drinks etc.They go out of their way and we would definitely reccommend this hotel to anyone.

We are very picky when it comes to where we stay,sleep and eat and the Isis Bungalows scored high marks in all areas.We left there very happy,but sad to leave

Thank you Isis Bungalows

We stayed at the Isis Bungalows for a couple of nights, and found it just delightful. The views are outstanding, the rooms are clean and comfortable, and the staff are as helpful as can be. All of that by itself would be amazing, but when you combine it with their affordable price, it becomes nothing less than awesome. If you are looking for a place on Alona Beach that isn't packed with crowds, you can do no better than the Isis Bungalows!

I have to say that the Isis bungalows were a great find. We had turned up at a pre-booked hotel which was a dump and refused to stay hoping that we would find something better along the beach. Then we found Isis, right on the beach (Alona) with pretty little gardens at the front. The rooms we're all en-suite with air con and a fan and the staff were lovely. The rates per night we're excellent too 1200 pesos per night for both of us. There is a great little travel agents next to the internet cafe next to Alona Kew White Beach hotel which is only a few moments walk from Isis. They can organise your day trips and drivers to The Chocolate Hills, to see the Tarsier monkeys etc. The linen was clean and replaced daily, towels provided and very comfortable and safe. Would definitely go back and stay here!!

I would definitely recommend Isis Bungalows to anyone who would go to Bohol. It's located right on Alona Beach, what you see in their site's pics are what you would really get. I went there last Sept 9-11 with my parents and cousin, and I can say we really enjoyed our stay.
Booking - Just use the booking page on their website and there would be prompt replies. They require 50% cash deposit btw.
Rates - Really affordable, especially for couples, and there are no hidden charges. Their land and sea tours are great, and recommended if you want a hassle free.
Rooms - We stayed at Room 8 and I wasn't disappointed. My dad really loved the room, nice view, spacious and clean, especially the bathroom! I agree with other reviewers that the bathroom is big enough to fit another bed. Fully working hot and cold shower, soap & shampoo replenished and towels changed everyday. They have a ref, and also cups for morning coffee, there's a thermos with hot water which you can request to be refilled anytime.
Staff - Friendly and polite staff, especially Rommel the driver/tour guide. They have round the clock security guard too.
Restaurant - They have a Thai restaurant just below our room which serves authentic tasting dishes. Even foreign visitors go there, and I can say that the way they serve their dishes is top class. Note, most of the dishes are spicy, so if you love spicy foods you should definitely try them.

We would definitely go back.
