Good location if you want to be on alona beach (it's a bit crazy because it's a public beach, annoying vendors). It is right on the beach next to really good massage ladies. Staff is friendly. DO NOT pay extra for the ocean view room, they do not exist. After finding out that I paid $10USD extra a night for something they don't even have, I was irritated that they also charged me daily to use a blow dryer. The restaurant is caustic with nice but poor service, food never came out hot or timely. There are much better places to stay near by. I'd recommend a different beach, then just visit Alona beach. Room service was good WHEN it made it to our room (about every other day). Cheap towels. Nice pillows. Comfortable king bed. Tiny rooms with nowhere to put anything. Nice that they have a table and chairs and drying rack outside the door though.

This place became our main restaurant due to their amazing sizzling seafood dishes. The place is located on the beach. My father and sister fell in love with the sizzling shrimp while i ate sizzling fish and squid. The new year drinks were also great. The mango float (dessert) is also a must.

Very friendly staff. Rooms were not as good as hotel rooms but the property is exactly in front of the beach. Very accessible to bars if you want to enjoy the night life. Rooms are ok if you are looking for a place just to sleep while you are away all day exploring Bohol.

Right on the beach close by to restaurants, however no noise from nearby bars... We had a pool/garden view room. Room itself was good, quiet A/C and nice hot shower, also plenty of storage space with shelves.

-We stayed here from 15-18 july 2019 in a group of 5 (added an extra bed to one of the rooms) -We were allocated Room 8 and 10 which are both on the lower floor on the same level as the reception area. Room 1-7 are on the uppper floor and room 8-11 are on the lower floor. -OVERALL: The price justifies what u get. Do not expect luxury and flamboyant amenities (there are close to zero) but expect a place where you can get sleep -ROOM TIPS: Request to avoid room 8 and room 7 if possible. They are at the dark end of the corridor on each level (the resort has 2 levels) and mozzies like to hangout around that corner hence the chance of mozzies entering your room is much higher when you open the door. our friends in room 10 had no issues. -Room 8 also has toilet floor tiles that are not in the best condition compared to room 10. -Request for rooms on the upper floor of the hotel because they let more light in and seem less dingy + more airy PROS: -very clean rooms for a beachfront hotel and for the price -drying racks outside each room by the door for you to hang clothes -complimentary water everyday -shower heater works and with good water pressure -location is amazing!!! not a "quiet and romantic" location but great for young people like us. super near good beachside restaurants (we recommend oasis restaurant and the bohol bee farm restaurant, avoid the ISIS thai restaurant) and also 5mins walk from convenience stores selling alcohol, snacks (including 7-eleven and mcdonalds) etc. Note that the hotel is located along the beachfront and is about a 3min walk from the road where your transport will drop you off. -we were actually planning on staying at one of the more secluded resorts (cliffside resort) but they did not have dates available. hence we booked this hotel instead and boy am i glad we did. it would save alot of transport costs as we would not have to constantly take tricycles to the beachfront where all the restaurants are for dinner! -aircon works :) very important! haha + room has a fan too! turn on both if you're feeling hot and sweaty -rooms are cleaned and made everyday. on the first day when we entered room 8 the floor was somehow really oily (? someone must have split tanning oil or something) and on day 2 we requested for them to clean it and they did clean it really well! CONS: -expect the room to feel a little more humid because it is a hotel by the sea -personally, my pillow was really soft and i hated it... but i should have asked for a change of pillow. the staff are very willing to change linens if you ask. i asked for an extra blanket sheet because my friend kept stealing my blanket thru the night and they gave it to me really quickly without any fuss -toilet flush is very weak in both our rooms. need to press and hold the flush for really long until everything is flushed in. avoid throwing any toilet paper inside due to high clogging risk -no hairdryer -lighting in room 8 was quite bad. it's mostly dim yellow light and there's something about dim yellow light that makes everything seem more dingy. Room 10 had white light which was brighter. TIP: open up the curtains to make the room brighter!!! -there is only a ramp up to the hotel area (above the restaurant) and it is really quite steep so for older folks/those with children please beware and assist your travelling crew as needed. we are in our early 20s so we didn't really mind. -the place for you to "wash your feet" before going up the ramp to the hotel area is merely a bucket of smelly water which we stopped using after awhile, so we had to rush and rinse our feet once we entered our rooms (room floor became a little sandy)

If you want a beachfront property near everything, this is a good place for you. More affordable compared to other resorts within the area. Near buzz cafe and hennan resort. Friendly staff but very weak wifi. You can stay in the reception area for faster wifi.

We stayed a couple of days here in a nice room with no natural light. It’s a pity that they have in front of the room there is the wall of the neighbor building. You should maybe buy your own toiletries, the shower gel was enough for one day only in the dispenser and when we asked for some it came after 2 days in a tiny jar.

The room was simple but clean and suited my needs. Small beachfront property - but rooms set back a little so not exactly water views. 2x small bottles of water free daily, well cleaned, fresh linens every 3 days, fresh towels (if needed) daily. Service great. I ate at the restaurant there as well, food was nice enough. Restaurant and accommodation quite overpriced for the Philippines and for the the quality, however similar tourist prices/standards within the area. I liked being able to charge meals to my room, as well as their connection with Genesis Divers as received a discount due to that as well. Its near some bars that have live music, so was a bit noisy but this stopped at 11pm each night. As a single traveller this place fine for me, however if I were travelling as a couple or family I would probably stay somewhere a little bigger (ie with a pool, bar, ocean views etc).

We arrived at Hayahay after spending 2 weeks in Palawan where we stayed in some really nice resorts, so on arriving we were a little bit hesitant because of the older, tired room (and no view of anything really) but as it turned out the location made up for all of the shortfalls. Just a short note on transportation, we had arrived at Cebu airport and paid P270 for a taxi to ferry terminal 1 where we were charged P10 for the taxi to come into the port with our luggage which was great. We opted for the open air class (P450) rather that the inside tourist class (P500) which provided a covered seating area and is a good choice. You also are charged the port fee P25 pp and a baggage fee P50. On arrival at Tagbilaran we arranged a tricycle to Alona Beach for P300. Note that you need to carry your baggage about 100m along the sandy track to the hotel from where you are dropped off. On arrival the hotel staff were not overly friendly but still ok - I had to keep asking about the wifi and they would reset the router, but in reality don't expect any great internet connection here. The rooms are old and a bit worn out, but still clean and comfortable and a little cramped. Its all about location location location - the hotel is right amongst everything that you would need - there are small shops nearby for snacks, beers, etc, plenty of restaurants / bars to choose from, and you are right on the beach as soon as you walk out of the hotel. It is surprisingly quiet at night (no roads) apart from the music next door, but thankfully it was always shutdown before 11pm each night. A quick word on wifi - most of the bars / restaurants have wifi and it is so much better than the hotel. There are a few bars offering happy hour with beers for P50 and cocktails P100 so worth a visit even if it is only for the wifi .....Most of the nearby restaurants are relatively expensive as you would expect - if you shop around it is surprising that some restaurants charge so much more for a particular dish, so check a few out depending upon what you want to eat. We didn't eat at Hayahay as we found it overly expensive for their seafood dishes. There is also a 7-11 nearby and a McDonalds under construction ...... Note that on the corner where you are dropped off in Alona Beach there are many touts selling boat tours, transfers, motor bikes, etc. I chatted to a few and this is where I organised a motorbike to hire as well as our transfer back to Tagbilaran pier for the ferry back to Cebu. I also organised a private boat to take us to the Balicasag Marine Sanctuary for P2000 (whole boat) plus entrance fee P250pp - if you need to rent a snorkel and mask it will cost you P150pp. There are many people trying to sell you a similar boat tour but even though you may save a little it looks to be very very crowded. This marine park is definitely worth the effort to visit. Even though this hotel has its drawbacks, I think that it is a good place to base yourself for a few days and is of reasonable value.

We didn’t expect too much coming in to this hotel but liked a lot about it. It’s in one of the best locations and the rooms are comfy. Yah there’s a few quirks like the wifi being weak and the rooms not being cool enough, but sometimes I think people forget when they come to these countries it may not be up to our normal standards. I would recommend this stay if I had friends coming here.
