Reviewed April 11, 2014

I Made a Pleasant discovery during my one day business trip to Bohol. I discovered Amorita Resort Hotel – a quite and an assuming hotel were my assistant book me.

* The Room was functional and very comfortable. The beddings and towels were new, clean and fresh smelling.
* The Food menu featured all my favorites as well as new entrees I truly enjoyed. A must try is Amorita’s wide selection of bread and pastries – simply delicious.
* I must compliment all the staff of Amorita – they were very friendly and efficient. They made me feel very welcome.
* The Hotel facilities – Wow!! And wow!!!
* The panoramic view of Alona beach from Amorita was magnificent and simply breathtaking.

I have not been to Bali nor Phuket – but after my one day business trip experience in Amorita Hotel Resort – I know where my next family vacation will be. See you soon Amorita!

Dear archiesanvictores,
It's wonderful to hear that you enjoyed your short stay at Amorita Resort. On your next visit, we hope that you will have more time to enjoy lounging by the infinity pool and sample more of Saffron Restaurant's dishes. Our Boholano Menu and Saturday Grill Buffet are quite popular! Please feel free to send me an email at cvillanueva@amoritaresort.com should you need any assistance for your upcoming summer get-away.
Sincerely,
Carissa

This is an overdue review. We stayed there last year for 4 days in July 2013. The food was great. The garden beautiful, and the view was breathtaking. We had to go down the steps to go to the beach, but it was okay. We got a boat ride for 30 minutes to snorkel in Balicasag Island. It is one of the best places to snorkel because the waters are calm. The reef is abundant, beautiful, breathtaking. It is one of my favorite places to go. I will most likely return to the area sometime soon and stay in the resort again.

Dear beezymum,
Thank you for taking the time to share your Amorita experience with the Trip Advisor community. Amorita's location is just one of the many reasons why we and many of our guests love the resort. The gateway between the resort and Alona Beach provide our guests with access to the beach while maintaining the resort's privacy, plus added security for everyone at the resort. We look forward to having you and your family stay with us again!
Sincerely,

We were in Bohol together with my wife for 3 days & 2 nights and stayed in a different resort though ( wish we booked in amorita ) but anyhow, since we were very curious how it looks and how it feels like to be in this resort we decided to have dinner at their saturday grill buffet (which was last week). The place was quiet good, the romantic view overlooking the alona beach was so lovely! t'was like dating for the first time with my other half. The food was good and the resto staffs were very friendly but what we love the most was the ACOUSTIC BAND it was very entertaining! We love that part when they played a song that made us dance a bit while we were getting some foods. I just love it personally. It made that buffet more TASTEFUL!. I said it 'cause we had enough with those very slow songs & bossa nova etc. that most of the time where being played in a resort. They sing very well. We love their song selections. We even ask the name of their female vocals and if im not wrong it's Sandra. We wish to go back to Bohol and will definitely stay in Amorita and will make it to the point that we will be able to have Saturday grill buffet again with your very wonderful acoustic band.

We stayed here for 4 nights in December. We where coming from Apo Island and Dumaguete and was supposed to take the ferry to Bohol, but it was cancelled. We had arranged transfer with the hotel (from the pier) and we had to change the time for the pickup. We where happy to be met by a huge van at the pier when the ferry arrived late at night (from Cebu-long trip from Dumaguete). We where driven to Amorita and quickly checked in to the hotel, they even kept the restaurant open a little longer, so that we could eat dinner. The bungalow was really great, big and secluded, we had included a massage in the room and that was also great. The resort is in an excellent location with great views of Alona beach. The service from the staff is also good. There are a few reasons why I don't give this excellent: 1. not enough sunbeds, you had to get up pretty early to secure one. 2. the food here is not that great- ok, but nothing more. 3. we had some issues when setteling our bill, they said that we had paid to little for our room (in advance online and confirmed by the hotel) and that the balance could be paid when we checked out. This should have been take up when we checked in and not to be presented with a quite huge bill the night before we are leaving. When we refused to pay it, they contacted the manager, and she fixed it immediately. So happy it all worked out:) When you are in Alona beach I would recommend going to visit Oslob, to snorkel with whalesharks, rent a boat by yourself from Alona or go on a trip with more people. We stopped on the way back to snorkel Balicasag, and it was also good. Also see the chocolate hills and tarsiers in Bohol. Top tip when going to the Philippines is to bring your own sunscreen, if you want something under 50 spf

Bliss. The room was comfort without being overdone, the food first class, the view along the beach stunning but what made this vacation so special were the hotel staff. All smiling, nothing forgotten: indeed requests were anticipated before asking.A rare and real treat.

Stayed here with Family and friend, we were all first timers in BOHOL. We didn't expect much, and we booked Amorita because it was recommended. We were advised that this place was UP THERE, surely it couldn't be that GOOD!
We got there and it was that good, it was GREAT! it was Excellent!
The service was excellent, the staff are so lovely, they get to know you and greet you by your name "Miss AJ".. The location was fantastic, outside the resort was the beach, They have a great infinity pool overlooking the beach!
The location and the service was what got me with this resort!
With our booking we had a free massage, and the massage was AMAZING! an hour was not enough, thats how good it was! I wish to go back there again hopefully soon!
If i didn't have planned activities, i would have stayed in the resort the whole stay i was there!
Really really great resort, I have nothing else to say except how great it is! :)

Room Tip: any room is great! you won't be in there anyways, you'll most likely be in the pool or out o...

From the time you check in to the time you leave, nothing is a problem for the wonderful staff and manager Hermie. You feel relaxed and really cared for whilst in this hotel. Breakfast is plentiful and lots to choose from. The locations is fabulous and the hotel pool looks straight across the ocean and the beach and sand beautiful. The resort is not too big and the bars and restaurants have lots to offer. I loved this place and would deffinatly recomend and re-visit in the future. Keep up the good work and thank you again.
