“disappointed :(”
Reviewed March 15, 2011

we were picked up at the airport by the driver( they charged PHP1,000 for roundtrip air transfer). we arrived friday and they allowed early check-in. there were only 2 beds and they just provided a thin mattress for the 3rd person. there was no trashcan in the cr. there was no doormat outside the door which caused our room's floor to be dirty ( sand on our feet of course). no water heater too. their restaurant has overpriced food and small servings. we ate there on our first night dinner and we were disappointed. the beachfront was also not that clean when we got there friday morning so we hung-out at the dumaluan 2 beachfront which was great because we could order drinks and food by the beach..
by the way , the lounge chairs of whites and greens on their beachfront look rotten :( we hung-out in the whites and greens beach only on our last day before our flight for a very short swim before we leave. during the nights, we hung-out at dumaluan 2's restaurant which has a band and a wide selection of cocktail drinks..
there was wifi in WG's restaurant but not all the time. when we were there we were able to use it one time and no more!
the only good thing is that the owner and staff were all polite and friendly. and also fast e-mail communication with ms. neo before we got there.

Just got back from our stay at Bohol and I can say that we had a very great time during our entire stay in the island.
We had our vacation last Sunday March 13 for 3D/2N and spend it at Whites and Greens.
We're very thankful of how they accommodated us. From the day tour, the Balicasag experience, to the food that they served, and the customer service that they gave. They took care of everything.
1.0 Day Tour :
To start of, let me introduce Kuya "Edgar Arce", our tour guide. He was very polite and was never late. No time pressure and you can drop off any place you want (to take pictures or just even hang-out). He even suggests spots and best souvenir shops in town where you can save much. You can ask W&G to have him as your guide.
2.0 The Resort:
Whites and Greens (W&G) is located in the beachfront right beside Dumaluan Beach Resort (DBR). Rooms are very spacious, airconditioned, and clean. The staff are very kind, we never heard any complaints even though we ask them from time to time. W&G also offered us free food during our stay at the resort (Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner). 3 variants in every meal for our group (7 pax), plus unlimited rice. whoah! =) We also had a chat with the owner who's been very approachable (He always asks us how's our stay and if everything is ok). The sand is soft and white, you can really enjoy walking without hurting your feet. W&G also allowed us to use their kayak for FREE. I remembered passing along Dumaluan when someone asked us how much is the rent for it, we answered it's for free. She was frustrated knowing that you have to rent it first at DBR.
But DBR is also amazing especially during night, the lights and the band are plus for them. (Not exactly sure though how customer service works for them)

Bottomline, if you're planning to spend your vacation in Bohol and you want to have a budget friendly place I strongly recommend W&G. Good customer service, nice beachfront, and a very peaceful and relaxing place.

It's funny how some people expect five star amenities when they're paying measly 47USD/night. I could say that staying in W&G was a blessing in disguise, Choosing W&G was a spur-of-the moment, Someone was suppose to fix our itinerary but it's a long story so thus we end up looking for last minute accomodations and guides for our trip. We availed of Kuya Tatky's services, he's such a cool guide and he's really good with kids. My son even asked if we'll see him again the next day, if he'll still be our guide. Coz he's so fond of him.

For just $47USD/ night, free airport shuttle service to and from if staying for a minimum of 3 nights stay. W&G is truly a GEM in Dumaluan Beach. Another plus that I may add is their immediate and speedy coordination thru emails and sms. I often would email Ms. Neo and she'd definitely reply minutes after. As first time "Bohol go-ers" that alone gave us an assurance that our stay would be A-OK.
Another plus is their Driver "Kuya Rey" calling me at work a day before our arrival in Tagbilaran, to confirm our arrival and introduced himself as well. Even if management has assured us that there'll be a van assigned to pick us up.These kind gestures of the W&G staff makes you realize that getting their services is a wise choice. I miss dining at their resto and having friendly chit-chats with the owners. They are like family. Accomodating and super friendly.

I scouted and emailed nearby resorts and they'd definitely charge more and will not offer free pick-up from the airport. They do have these options but of course you'd have to pay extra. P500-P600

I would definitely stay here again if we go back to Bohol.

We were at whites and greens beach resort last January 29 and we really had a good time. We arrived in the afternoon after our Bohol countryside tour and we were amazed with their beach front.. the staff were friendly and even told us to approach them in case we needed anything. Actually, one of my friend wasn't feeling well that time. One of their staff went to town and bought medicines. The rooms are nice and complete... and the restaurant is wi-fi zone too! Its a good place to stay for those on a budget.. In the morning, the beach was more fascinating! It was low tide and sea creatures are all around such as sea urchin, star fish, small crabs! Everything was great. Before we left, we were able to speak to the manager and he even offered us a package tour the next time we come back to their resort. Panglao is definitely one of the best with its powder-like sand, amazing beaches and nice people.

When we arrived there, nobody was neither at the reception nor in the restaurant and the place around looked like everything is being under construction. We got our key from a boy and that's it. No one welcomed us or was interested to serve us at the restaurant.
Under these circumstances we didn't feel comfortable at all, so we decided to check-out and search for a new resort.
We finally found a lady around who looked very concerned and sorry that we're leaving and she promised, that the manager will get in contact with us as we made a full prepayment and claimed to get some money back (as they do not have a cancellation policy on their web page - at least they did not had one at that time).
And here comes the actual disappointing thing: no one ever contacted us or replied to our e-mails.
Of course it is depending on every person if you feel comfortable at a resort under these circumstances or not. However, we did not. And it is not just about the money, but to take the easy way out and not reply to an unsatisfied customer and keep the full money is not very polite I think. So we feel a bit betrayed.
It's a pitty because the beach is very nice and under other circumstances, it might be a nice place (rooms and restaurant look very very basic).
At the end we had an excellent time at Bohol Beach Club. Of course this is a different category of hotel but it was worth the money!

a year ago there have been no reviews for this hotel where we stayed at. i'm glad that many other tourists are writing good reviews about this hidden gem in Panglao island.

it was recommended by the best tour guide from bohol, Mr. Tatsky (text/call him [-] for the best and most affordable Bohol countryside and island hopping tour packages, he's the coolest!), after we found out that Dumaluan beach resort is already fully booked. amazingly, we never had an inch of regret about this resort-hotel. very simple, basic, yet fully packed with pure genuine & heartwarming Filipino hospitality. we liked that there are no TVs in the resort, giving us more chances of discovering the beauty of Panglao island. rooms have A/C, free toiletries, private CR/BR. free wifi internet access is provided at the main hut. packages also include free Filipino breakfast.

if you are budget-conscious and would want to give great value for your money, you will never go wrong with Whites & Greens (W&G). right there at the beachfront are plenty of starfishes & small fishes making the beach experience more worthwhile. its beachfront is absolutely better than Dumaluan's, which is often crowded therefore not at all times clean; than Bohol Beach Club's, which has luxury amenities but a so-so beachfront. these 3 resorts are just adjacent to one another, but W&G is quite low profile but for me, it's the best. given the chance, i'd still prefer to stay there when i come back to bohol. =)

If you are looking for a peaceful place where you can relax and bond with family and friends, Whites and Greens is the right choice. There is no tv and radio. But that's what's good about it. You would be able to enjoy the beach all day, everyday. That's also the time to de-stress and relax. No distractions whatsoever. The staff are all friendly and warm. It feels like WAG is your second home. No wonder a lot of tourists stay there for a long time. The package given to our group is really worth it. I am happy I stayed in WAG while in Bohol. Two thumbs up!!!
