Travelers' Choice
We are a relaxing, tropical, beachfront resort located on the quiet "divers and lovers" side of Bohol Island. We are located in the friendly Municipality of Anda. There are several daily flights from Manila to Bohol and fast ferries from Cebu. We can arrange a car to meet you at the new International Airport or the ferry terminal. With only 11 Suites and Cabanas, and a private beach, it is never crowded. All rooms face the sea and are close to the beach. We also have an on-site Scuba-Diving centre and an International Restaurant. Our neighbours are local people, mostly fishermen and farmers. Most of our guests are couples, or friends travelling together, expatriates relaxing, professionals recharging, and an occasional Hemingway staying to work on a novel. Many are divers, but all enjoy the sea, or at least being close to it, as well as the lush tropical surroundings. Guests are unanimous in praising the tranquillity and beauty of the resort and the friendliness of our staff.

It is always a good sign when the proprietor is waiting to greet you on arrival (and say goodbye on departure). We had a really splendid time in one of the new cabanas. Spotless and virtually flawless, plenty of cold filtered water, great showers inside and outside, beautifully kept gardens and a great view from our terrace. The food was generally excellent though I had been hoping for more fresh fish! We ate there every day and did not tire of the variety, no complaints. Good wines and cocktails, and juice!!! Staff were absolutely lovely, reception, room staff, wait staff and cooks. Seemed to be a very happy place, just hope it survives the current traumas. Be prepared for a good two hour transfer, but the drivers were safe and cars were in excellent condition. Hope to go back some day! We were a retired couple thoroughly enjoying the tranquility of the surroundings. My wife had her first experience of scuba diving, the dive school staff were great.

Dear Grumpy554, Thank you for you kind words and for giving us top score. I am glad that you found the new Cabanas to your liking. We are using the quiet times imposed by Covid to build two more free-standing bungalows and to work on the landscaping. I hope you can come back and enjoy it with us when we can travel again. In the meantime, stay safe and best wishes from us all at Island View. Best, Peter

Wonderful place far away from turistic center of Bohol. I spent here 10 amazing days. It is small hotel with just 8 nice and large rooms. Resort is located just in front of sandy beach on the coral reef. Very good staff. Peter owner, Archie and their team are really helpful. Big infinity pool and big garden available for the guests. I also have to say that resort offers very good a la carte restaurant with wide range of food ( we tried a lot and everything was delicious). Also wine selection is very good :- ). If you would like to learn scuba diving it is very good opportunity because on the place is scuba diving center ( I tried, amazing). To summarize, If you are looking for not crowded, quiet place, close to nature and additionally with good food, wine and nice jazz music it is the only choice :- ) Pawel (February 2020)

Hi Steve. Many thanks for giving us top marks. You certainly note the things we like: the food, good wine, the beach, snorkelling, and the absence of raucous and intrusive forms of entertainment. We just like to have fun without headaches. We are all looking forward to your next visit. Warm regards from all of us.

You will either love it or hate it. Go there if you want peace and serenity. Don't go there if you seek glitz and excitement. Go there if you love jazz and good food and wine. Avoid it if you want rock & roll and fast food. Go there if you want to be next to the sea and coconut palms. Don't go if you mind being at the end of a rutty dirt road that takes two and a half hours to get to from the airport. Go there if you want top class diving and beautiful sunsets. Avoid if you prefer watching TV (not available). Everyone will like the attentive, personalize service and clean, comfortable accommodations.

Dear jsltko, Thanks for taking the time to review us. You are quite right that we are not a place for everyone, and we would never try to be. Rather, we want to attract travellers who appreciate natural beauty and who are looking for a place to truly relax, and we want to keep our place quiet and beautiful so we can also enjoy it along with our guests. So we do avoid some of the things that you would find in other hotels and resorts, but which we feel detract from a relaxing stay: There is no TV in the room (or the room next door either), and we don't like devices in the restaurant, and it is quiet jazz in the evenings, not the "I Did it My Way" crowd on a super-loud karaoke machine. As you say, definitely not for everyone, but you gave us full marks, so I am glad that it works for you. Come back and see us again when you can. Best wishes, Peter
