Green Papaya is great! Especially Gia and Aira, the girls that work at the front the desk! My partner and I had an amazing time! Gia set us up with an amazing tour guide who took us all over the island and was so much fun to get lunch with. Absolutely beautiful people!!! I’m sure the entire staff at green papaya are amazing, but we connected with Gia and Aira right away! They were so welcoming, friendly, and accomodating! We loved our stay not only because of the clean room, refreshing pool, location, and food but because of the staff! Will definitely be coming back!!! Thank you so much Gia and Aira for making our stay care-free, relaxing, and amazing! We’ll see you again soon definitely!
We were there for the wedding of our son in Philippines. We did our booking online at Green papaya resort. On arrival we were greeted by very charming staff. They were well versed and knew their job. They made every effort to make our stay comfortable. The food and the drinks were just right. The rooms were clean and the bedding was great. The shuttle bus was amazing. Green in colour. Oh we also loved the Happy Hour where drinks were in plenty. We would like to thank and recommend all the staff especially..GIA, CLUDINE, CELYN and AIRA. The kitchen staff were excellent. The maintenance Boy was also very good and helpful too. We will definitely be staying there again in the future. Kuldip hunjan UK
Stayed for two nights - downside comments first. 1) Beds have quite sharp wooden corners - quite painful if you bump into them - these need to be rounded off. 2) Quite clearly they have a problem with the sewage system - toilet wouldn't flush properly & I overheard another guest complaint of the same issue. 3) Sliding UPVC doors are just so heavy & hard work to close properly. 4) Prices - expensive compared to similar priced resorts near Alona. 5) Bathroom Shower head needs servicing or replacing - a strong jet of water comes from the middle with weak water flow from other nozzles. 6) WiFi poor in room 7) No tea or coffee making facilities Upside: 1) Very peaceful & relaxing - nice plants inside and surrounding the property, many birds visiting for the fruit. 2) Pool is…
We stayed in this fabulous little place for two nights. The staff are very friendly and willing to help with anything you need. The prices for food and drinks were similar to what you can find locally (e.g., cheap by US standards).The rooms were clean. The pool was clean and warm. The hotel provides a free shuttle to/from Alona beach (just a few minutes' drive). The only negative was that there is a crazy rooster at a neighboring property who thinks dawn is arriving...well...most of the night. If you're a light sleeper, bring your earplugs. (This is true throughout the Philippines. Roosters and howling cats are everywhere.)
This hotel is out of the way, but close to all the action of Panglao Island. It was never a problem to get transportation to other places on the island from the resort, although it's all done by tricycles. The room was nice, the restaurant was good, with a limited selection, and the service was excellent. The girl in charge of checking me in (Gia) knew her job well, and was extremely helpful. The WIFI in the room is not strong, but was good in the common areas. I would stay here again.
