a review for a great price service balance . From the booking to the check out, this Italian own establishment worth the visit. We had the privilege to be hosted in one of their suit room , a peaceful area where resting is a key! Pool, great restaurant , topnotsch customer service , smiling and warm welcoming staff .. there ain’t big challenge enough for this team. Massage also can be done in your room ;) snorkeling , scuba dive and so on. You guessed it , this is the place to go to once you are in Bohol! Cheers to the staff and the Italian owner !
Average. The rooms are clean but basic considering the price. The main pro would be the restaurant, the dinners there were lovely, especially the pizzas, they are delicious with home made buffalo mozzarella! The breakfast however was awful but as its included in the price I guess you cant complain. The staff throughout the resort are all friendly and helpful.
Looks like this hotel was built sometime in 1980-es and it pretty much remains in that times. Very little upgrading or renovation was done since. Its location is a bit far away from everything unless you are ok and fit enough to walk for 10 min on a busy road in heat and humidity. Otherwise take a tuk-tuk for 100 php one way. There is a short cut to Alona beach and everything else but it ends in a "private property - do not tresspass" sign although you can still walk through there, very steep, made out of the rock stairs lead to the beginning of Alona Beach, a lot of rocks there - watch your step ! I would not advise to walk there in a darkness. Some good restaurants are there on Alona Beach, money changers, many locals offering tours - i booked with some of them, it was very good, especially one guy, his name is Peter - he makes very good arrangements. Electricity goes off quite often in that area although not for long. Room amenities are not bad but during my stay hot water box in the shower broke and had to be fixed. Then internet router for my room broke too, i checked out before they could repair it. Staff is nice and helpful there and the food in the restaurant is lovely. But breakfast is ridiculously limited - 1 egg (fried or scrambled), you need to ask if you want more eggs, some sausage or fish and plain rice, fruits - watermelon and pineapple, orange juice or iced tea, some time they make pancakes - that is all their breakfast selection.…
It seems like this hotel is mainly known for their restaurant as the people working there were always asking how many people for dinner when they were seeing us walked in. We rented the family room so we were on the 3rd floor. A few flaw in the room: 1- Water heater keep tripping if it is set above "low", hence hot water is not really hot. After diving is can be quite aggravating. 2- The water tank located on top of our room was quite noisy and we could hear a "plop Plop Plop" sound all night long as the room are really not soundproof. 3- No blockout curtain in the room, hence the big window right next to the bed will shine bright really early which makes it difficult to sleep in. 4- They only provide you with a flat sheet, we understand that the weather is hot, but it is not comfortable. it is nice to sleep under something a bit more heavy. Hence, I put 2 towels on top of my flat sheet in order to sleep. 5- The WIFI keeps tripping, the connection is really not reliable, I don't know it it was the hotel or the network over there so I won't comment too much on this. 6- For breakfast, you get only 1 egg with bread, or 1 egg with rice. I wish I could have a bit more. I could not understand that the food for lunch and dinner was so nice but choice of food for breakfast was really ordinary. On a brighter note, the staff is amazing and really nice. They pay attention to details and they care about you. They did all our booking for us from taxi to boat. They were really nice and knowledgeable. We were able to rent motorbike at 300 pesos per day which was helpful getting around.…
The best home for Buffalo Mozzarella in Bohol. We keep coming back for 3 years now in this Restaurant. Located in the quiet side of alona beach but only 7mins walk to the beach. We did not checked in here as we have heard not so good comments with the Accomodation.. Never the less the food is here is superb! The staffs are very Accomodating helpful and informative and very flexible we have been accomodated by the receptionist which also was the waitress at the same time during peak hours . The Pizza here is perfect. Prize is also decent for the quality of food you get. Thank you!
amazing little hotel owned by super friendly italian Alessandro. super helpful in organising tours/drivers/scooters, amazing restaurant with great italian food (pasta, pizza, burrata), and very close to the beach, but just far enough from all the chaos and noise of alona beach
High quality Italian food, home made buffalo mozzarella, great hospitality and fast service, I don’t think I should add any other reason why this is one of the best restaurant in Panglao. Highly recommended!
Ordered mix salad and pizza, got the salad and waited for the pizza. After 20 minutes a walked in customer came nd ordered pizzas they got there pizza first before us. When I can’t stand it anymore I ask the waitress where is our pizza and said wait for a minute then came back and said you have to wait as we ordered starter of mix salad so we have to wait another 20 minutes. Dafuk??
Resort is close to one kilometers away from Alona beach major restaurants, shops and bars. It's already old and carden was not well kept. Room was ok, but no black out curtains and room door could be opened only partly. Bed was better than average in the resorts in the Philippines but shower room need a update already. Balcony was nice as far smoking policy. Breakfast simple, other foods we got no experience. 50 Euros / night is not the best value resort in Alona. Wi-Fi was running pretty well.
The resort is really a relaxing place but at the same time at walking distance from Alona beach. It was really a pleasant surprise. They also have a brand new restaurant. Living in Asia sometimes you need to taste your hometown flavours. I tried their food, all freshly made with delicate taste. Try the buffalo mozzarella and pizzas.
