Well the room of our bungalow was ok. It was large with a comfortable bed...But now i understand why they haven‘t published any pics of the bathroom - for these price we can really ask something more.!! Generally the philippines are too overpriced for sleeping areas - in Thailand or Malaysia we slept for that money more than 3-4 days .. Loved the dogs there :-) staff very friendly and give good suggestions!

Dear Guests, Well you paid 1,600 php for a private aircon bungalow with private bathroom. Trust us it is a very good price for panglao. For sure one of the best value for money. Yes if you compare to thailand or malaysia, prices generally in the Philiipines are a bit higher, but simply because pur costs are higher also. The staff is paid way much than other countries. There is labor and environmental control, very strict also. So, after it is also your duty to check all those facts before you travel. Therefore we find this comment quite abusive, as it is actually VERY GOOD FOR THE PRICE. You should have compared with other accomodations around instead of comparing with other countries, this is too easy. Everything can be better elsewhere. For the bathroom, it has just bit repainted, tiles changed etc...... Sorry we couldn't do it before your stay. We apologise for that. Best Regards

The staff is very kind, they gave us a special price for a nice bungalow. This hostel is situated for 5min walking to alona beach. In fact, it's close to the beach and less crowded than resort on the beach. The price is affordable (1'300 - 1'800 peso). In addition, our room disposed a nice balcony. This hostel also offer some tours, like the bohol tour (2'200 peso) and i can also rent a motorbike.

I have been travelling for a few weeks Through Philippines now and I was so happy when I got to chill out guesthouse. A lovely iced tea welcome drink and super fast wifi! Ster travelling around on remote islands with really slow wifi was great to finally upload some photos to friends and family. The staff are amazing and attentive, breakfast is served fast so you can get on with your day! Hired a scooter and hey gave me a brand new one was brilliant! Best thing is they give you free tricycle ride to and from town! It’s only a 10min Walk but it’s nice that it’s free! Do your self a favour and stay here

Chillout guesthouse Pros: Nice location, a bit away from the big noise of Alona beach (can be seen as a con, but not for me!). You can walk to the beach (15min) or take a tricycle (free from 6-22pm as a service from the guesthouse). Good laundry service. Good Wi-Fi. Every day room sevice. Welcome drink + map op the area with poi (you will need it :)) Cons: Bad towels: thin, small, old, I mean: like they are 20 years old (they are stained when you get them, but in the room is a paper which says you will have to pay 500php if you stain them... Not okay!), the bed sheets are stained as wel (that kind of warning is very annoying since you receive both of them stained.. Which is also not so hygenic!!!) The whole room gives an old impression. The aircon makes a lot of noise, and also

Dear Guests, We thank you to take upon your time to write us your feedbacks, which we really take into consideration. We are happy about the pros, service being very important for us. On the other hand we can not be satisfied about the cons. It is now very common to charge guests if they damage stuff in the rooms or if they stained towels or bedsheet. Now it is absolutely not normal that we provided you with already stained towels. The staff is normally trained to check it before handling them to the guests. So accept our apologies for that, we will review this situation and make necessary adjustments. For your info, noisy aircon has just been changed, that was a situation that we were aware of, just had to find the good timing to replace it. Regarding the other things you have mentioned, we will of course assess them as quick as we can. May you decide to come back, let us know ahead so we can make sure to offer you better service next time. Thks

Quietly located in a nice garden, 15 minutes walking from the busy Alona Beach. For me this was the best place to stay, just perfect. Staff is very friendly and helpfull. Rooms are spotlessy clean. Wifi works in the rooms and in the restaurant. The provide free transport to the town in the evening between 6-10pm. Very good service. Only eaten breakfast here which was nice with the real crepes instead of these awfull American pancakes you get everywhere else in the Philippines and with properly toasted brown bread. Highly recommended.
