This is a great place. Nice and quiet, tucked away, lovely calm atmosphere, friendly and helpful staff. The food is nice and has a good drinks selection and a happy hour.

I would like to see the hotel put guests in touch with each other when they're booking tours, if the guests are happy to. A group of us found ourselves on the same tour in different vehicles, this would be especially good for solo travellers.

Very accomodating, great staff AND GREAT SERVICE. They do our requests with no charges and was shook by it. :) Deco is much appreciated. Place is not crowded and perfect place to chill and celeb with my family. :) Everything is perfect and I'm thankful with all the staff for letting us celeb that day and help us surprise our parents with no hassle. :) Wish we could stay more longer. :) Will stay again for sure. :)

Excellent little resort, fantastic attentive staff, nothing was too much trouble for them.
Highly recommended resort, exactly as pictured on booking. Com. Would definitely stay here for leisure again, a beautiful place close to restaurants and beach.

Well... Let's start with the pre-arranged airport pickup..... The driver did not show until 30 minutes late.. We found out that the original driver cancelled and they used another car service in a panic to pick us up... The cost for the 10 minute service was 400 PHP. What a rip off! Needless to say, we took a trike back to airport leaving for 150 PHP.
The free shuttle to Alona Beach... Yesterday we waited an hour only to find out that the shuttle was broken... We paid for a trike back to the resort.

The room... Very dated and sharp corners on the bed trim... The sliding door to enter the room wasn't on the best working order and there was no hot water our first night and the second day of our stay.
The food wad seriously overpriced at the bar/restoraunt... 800 PHP for a Ham & Cheese Sandwich with Fries, a piece of breaded fish and some rice and 2 juices.

The policy of no outside food allowed in resort is ridiculous and outdated.

Overall, the staff were friendly and nice, but very lacking in their communication with guests...

We would not stay here again.

We absolutely loved the Green Papaya; location, service and staff were all 5 star! A special mention to Krissy who was very friendly with us and our baby and always smiling.
As other reviews mentioned, location is perfect and there is a free shuttle every 30 minutes to/from
Alona Beach (or you can walk 10/15mins). Breakfast is nice; I personally suggest to try the pancakes and the oatmeal banana porridge (huge portion). We also booked transfer to the airport and a tour of Bohol island through the hotel and everything worked out perfectly!
We absolutely recommend this accommodation as it’s very nice but still simple and you can really interact with local people.

home sweet home! sometimes u just find your spot and it hits! well thats what we had when went to panglao and slept at green papaya... arriving from the ferry they did not know green papaya but we had the adress so that was fine! the way there trough some "rough" not asfalted road i had my doubt but once i saw it all doubt was gone the pool is big!!! the water temperature ohh so good to cool off ! the rooms!! allll the space one may need! so big we made quite a mess and still had clean space to spare! the mini fridge will keep your water really cold make sure to turn it up to 5! The overhead shower with a good european stream of water ... im not trying to sound like an ikea commercial but everything was just spot on! planned for 2 days and stayed 5 nights! the breakfast also good!! could choose between filipino american or french breakfast! had the chance to try em all offcourse and the french one hit the spot! if u go panglao green papaya will make u feel right!!! this really is a gem of a place!

The hotel was at 100% occupancy and we were lucky to get an upstairs room.
The room was exceptionally clean and had everything we needed and all of the rooms faced 1 of the 2 pools. Nice balcony with table and chairs and a washing line. WiFi was good.
Plenty of sunbeds and the main pool was great if you like to swim.
The restaurant and bar were a bonus - happy hour very good prices !
The staff were amazing. Most days they were singing whilst doing their tasks - lovely to see people that seemed to really be happy with their work.
There is a free shuttle, every 30 mins to the beach but you can walk there in about 12 minutes.
(Albeit the first part is on an unmade section of the road) The driver also stopped on a couple of occasions when he saw us and asked if we wanted a lift - really thoughtful.
There is a lot of building work going on in the town.
Gia dealt with our booking and wasn’t phased by all the emails I sent ! Meeting her in person was lovely.
Chesca, Claudine, Mike, Phil all made us have an exceptionally relaxing stay. Check in and check out was excellent - particularly help with our bags and onward arrangements
400 peso from /to airport approx 12 mins.
The only slight downside to our stay was the cockerel next door which crowed constantly day and night. (Hard to believe really !)
