Lovely little bungalows/studio equipped with all we need :)

We stayed for 4 nights during our short stay in Panglao island.
Alona Pawikan staff have been incredibly helpful throughout our stay from arranging the tuktuk to pick us up from the ferry port, booking a private boat tour to Balicasag island, renting scooters, laundry service etc,.

Everything was well taken care of, and when in doubt, just ask. Everyone is very friendly and always willing to help. The private boat tour was 4x cheaper than what you will get from tour groups.

The location is great, only 2 minutes walk to the famous Overgrown cafe and all the other restaurants near Alona Beach.

We recommend staying at Alona Pawikan if you're looking for a serene stay close to all the restaurants and the popular Alona Beach.

Very nice place with a lovely staff! The room is super clean and nice to stay in. Great communal area to sit and chill, with a bar and breakfast available. The only downfall is that it is pretty far from the beach (doesn't seem like that in the map but when you arrive you realise it is around 10 min walk on busy roads...) Otherwise, a very nice place to stay!

私は彼女と4泊しましたが、部屋もホテルも非常に綺麗でビックリしました。
私達が最初の日本人だとオーナーが言ってましたが、日本人にもここはオススメです。スウェーデン人のオーナーは最初の見た目は大きくて怖そうな感じがしますが、喋ってみると、とても分かりやすい英語で話してくれ、とても親切でした。一度、部屋の石鹸置きを壊してしまい、謝りに行ったのですが「事故は突然起こってしまう物だから大丈夫」と優しく許してくれました。受付の女の子もフレンドリーですし、ここは本当にオススメです!!

I stayed 4night here.
First I saw this hotel,I was very surprised.
Because Hotel and room are so clean and owner and staff girl are very friendly and kind for us.
One day I broke soap-stand in the room.
It was my fault.
I went to owner and told it.
But he said "Some accident will be happened suddenly It's OK"
It's just my case.But Im very happy because of his kindness.
So I recommend this hotel.
Have a enjoy time in here!!!

A very nice clean and tidy room. Off the main area so very quiet. 10 minutes walk to beach. Good internet. Very helpful and friendly staff. Well stocked bar with reasonable "tourist prices". Has on-site motorbike hire that is cheaper than the main tourist strip. Bad points, no restaurant only order in pizza. Very dark road at night

Beautiful, cosy, clean and new cottages. The couple is nice, funny and very helpful. They organize scooters and helmets and a Perfect snorkeling-Trip with turtles :)
There is also a nice bar with tasty drinks cheaper than the beachbars.
Thank you very much we are coming back definitely.

If you want to stay away from the crowded part of panglao, this is the perfect place. Only 5-10 mins walk to the public beach. The owners were really accommodating during my stay.
I also love how native their rooms look outside but very modern inside. I highly recommend this place! =)

Very helpful staff. The cabin is not expensive, so good value for money. We rented a scooter very easily. They have a very cute cat walking around: whiskey. Room is a bit noisy, but the bar closes at 12 and the rooms are separated from each other, so this doesn't give issues. If you need to get up early ask for a cabin at the end of the property.

Beautiful little cottages with modern and clean interior. Room has a good sized TV and aircon for those lazy days when you want to lay in bed. Ken the owner and the team of staff were exceptional friendly and inviting. They regularly provided me with great advice on the island activities and services. Ken's bar specialises in filo craft beers and he had a great selection. There is also a Japanese cook that turns out some sensational dishes. I really enjoyed my stay and I'll be returning in future!

Mid twenties couple, 3 weeks into travelling.

I downloaded trip advisor and registered just so I could give this place a good review, I know most people download it to give bad reviews (but don't worry there's a greek restaurant on the beach I'm gonna slate later). Don't be put off by the low number of reviews so far because this place is pretty new!

We have stayed in a few places on a similar budget in cities and more remote places and so far this place is the best by a long way.

The rooms are their own little huts with en suites and nice cold fridges. You get two complementary water bottles and the other drinks are actually reasonably priced!

The room is spotlessly clean, floors and sheets. You can tell that the owner has not skimped on anything like the shower and the air con. The air con works great and is new which means it's pretty quiet as well. I don't have the best back in the world following a car accident t a couple of years ago but had no issues with the bed at all. The wifi is good enough to stream Netflix or watch stuff on Vimeo and barely have it buffer. I also downloaded the trip advisor app pretty quickly!

The bar looks incredible and there is a really high quality pool table to boot! The owner is looking to get in some proper cocktail making gear so that's something to look forward to.

The hosts are really friendly and not intrusive at all, they don't hesitate to give you any extras you need either.

I'd also recommend grabbing a drink in the bar on your first night here because the hosts can give you some really good advice about where to eat/party in town.

I hope you enjoy this place as much as we did.

今まで滞在した宿泊施設の中で、最も素敵なホテルの一つです!最高です!!

オーナーはとてもフレンドリーで、予約時からメッセージで親切にアドバイスをしてくれました。部屋は外装も内装もとっても素敵でした。毎日丁寧に掃除され、とても清潔なトイレとバスルームが備わっています。ホテルのような建物ではなく、一戸建てのバンガローが3軒並んでいます。それぞれが独立し、玄関横にはオープンデッキがあり、とてもリラックスできます。まるで、自分の家にいるかのように滞在することができます。周りはとても静かです。
初めは、2泊のみの滞在予定でしたが、居心地が良すぎて延泊し、合計で4泊しました。

アロナビーチまでは5分程度歩く必要がありますが、レストランや土産屋があるので全く退屈しません。すぐ近くには、安くておいしいBBQレストラン、コンビニエンスストア、Bar、観光案内所があります。

ボホールの滞在にオススメのホテル(バンガロー)です。ここに泊まるために、またボホールを訪れたいです。

Awesome !!
Very helpful staff, super clean facilities, and good location.

There are very welcome from staff. We arrived there at 10 pm. But they welcomed us with big smile :)
I even walked back from Alona beach in about 10 mins. There are nice BBQ restaurant, convenience store, and good bar near Pawikan Resort.
The bungalow is super clean and brand new. We felt like that we were home. They clean our room every day.

I really appreciate the staff. This is our unforgettable memories to stay here.
Thank you :)
