their resort if not that extravagant but has the relaxing feeling their staff are always smiling and friendly that you'll not hesitate to ask questions .. the rooms are spacious ... their location are away from the highway thats why i like it because its far from the noise . will really be going back soon hopefully ♥️ also the structure of the rooms have that filipino touch not like the other resort they have such purely modern designs in every room. i love those nipa huts style of touch on the roof and the ceiling on the terrace ♥️ it add more vibrant to the whole resort ♥️♥️♥️
Ganda ng place. Sobrang affordable. Laki ng room sulit na sulit. Very accomodating lahat ng staff. Plus bilis ng internet. 😊 good location if mag work kahit nasa travel. Babalikan namin to sobrang lapit lang sa mga restaurant and alona beach 😊
The pool was nice however the smaller one beside it was very dirty. I don't understand why they only have 1 chair inside the room and a very small table that can only fit 1 person (this room can fit up to 3 pax). The towels were gross and the bedsheets look worn out.
If you're looking for a place to stay away from the crowd but still not that far from Alona Beach, this is exactly the place to stay, Scent of Green Papaya Resort.
It was an excellent stay, indeed! Our family really did enjoyed staying in this resort. It was a lovely surprise for my sister's birthday upon check in when they left a birthday decor inside the room. There were staff members namely Joel, Philip, Mj and of course John, the Resort Manager who were particularly helpful, accommodating and friendly who go above and beyond to make sure you have the best time.
We had encounter a small problem on my mother's room but here comes this guy Joel, who attentively handled our concern with grace and professionalism. Kudos to him👍
We will definitely comeback with my family soon.
My review of the Scent of Green Papaya Resort/Hotel in Panglao, Bohol, Philippines. If you're looking for a great hotel to stay at that's economical and modern, look no further than this hidden gem of a resort. It's basically just a few blocks from the beach in the Alona Beach area of Panglao, Bohol in the Philippines. I stayed here in February, right when Covid was flaring up and they were shutting down borders.
I booked the room using Agoda.com and paid about $60USD/night for a Superior King Room, which included a custom made breakfast every morning. The resort/hotel is about a five minute walk from the main road where the hustle and bustle is of Alona Beach, but if you don't feel like walking, they do have a shuttle taking you back and forth from the main road, which is lined with American-style restaurants (including McDonald's if that's your thing), as well as souvenir shops, tour kiosks etc.
The front desk staff was super cool and reminded me to choose my breakfast each evening so they could prepare it fresh for me in the morning. Also, they helped me call a ride for the ferry and also were amazing helping me book tours, including a snorkeling tour.
I had a great stay and highly recommend this place if you're looking for something different. This place even had a Balinese feel to it. There are lots of hotel options in Alona Beach, many of which are five times the price of this hotel. So if you're looking for something quaint, quiet and cool, give Scent of Green Papaya a try! I would definitely stay here again if I were ever to return to Alona Beach.
