The staff were very friendly. The food was good and had generous proportions. The location was ok. Nice view. The rooms were basic but ok. If you were just at a 5* this might seem rough, but the rooms were clean and the beds comfortable. It seemed safe.

We stayed a few days in January, where we were treated to generous hospitality and a beautiful view. The rooms were very clean and the breakfasts delicious (you can choose between a variety of Filipino and Western breakfasts). There is a bus stop conveniently located across the street, which was excellent since we did not have a car. The location is close to a multitude of scenic sites, including the beautiful Bolinao Falls, Hundred Islands National Park, and the white sand Patar beach. It was a beautiful, relaxing base from which to make day trips in the scenic province of Pangasinan.

Olana is much more than a B&B, this is a small family owned hotel with all the services you need for a perfect week end stay.

Arrived from Manila after midnight, still we were welcomed by the managers and the owner. And that is typically for the service here at Olana, they will do their very best to make your stay as good as possible.

We also had our dinners at Olana, fantastic seafood Italian style prepared by the owner.

In addition the ocean view is amazing, the rooms are nice and clean, internet is working well. When coming back to this area we will definitely choose Olana for our stay.

Small and inexpensive lodge type B&B. Do not expect anything luxurious or fancy, just enjoy the tranquillity and the hospitality of the very nice and accomodating care takers.
You can order a special meal in advance if you wish so.
The place lays in front of a shallow water beach but it is very close to a larger sandy beach where you can board boats and ride in 20 minutes to a very nice island equipped with shades and convenient lodges for a great day of sum and swim.
Olana is also a 30 min drive away from Hundred Island boarding pier. Just be sure to go there early in the morning since they adopted a limited number of tourists per day to limit environmental damage to the scenic spot. In the weekend it gets crowded at dusk and gets worse soon.
We also drove to Bolinao and back in the same day.
Patar beach is awesome although water is indeed shallow most of the time.
Olana's facilities will be refurbished soon according to the new owner and probably the current price, very low, might be going up a notch.

I travelled by my motorbike and stayed alone at the hotel - I can not describe the way I was served; the smiles of the lovely Filipino couple, that take care of the place (owners were not present) and their kids; the care they showed to tell me where to go around; the breakfast I had facing the sunrise... they even covered my motorbike with a towel to protect it from the morning dew.
The hotel is situated at the sea shore, but do not expect to find a beach there. However several kilometers away one can find any type of beach he/she likes.
For me personally it does not matter as beaches here, in the Philippines are just everywhere - it was about the human touch and the place...

The couple were nice, plus the breakfast is great (i specifically loved the fruits, we were served watermelons and dragonfruit). Just a bit disappointed when Ms. Angie’s husband asked her if we already paid our balance which is just 200 pesos (for my niece’s breakfast) i think. I think he tried to whisper but i already heard it, don’t get me wrong i don’t mind paying but if you’re gonna let your guests hear it then the disappointment will really be inevitable. Also we went out to explore the place, when we came back, we rang the doorbell, we texted and called Angie, but we waited for several minutes before the gate was opened. Maybe our timing was really bad since the helpers were on leave at that time.. Nonetheless couple were nice, they recommended a place where we can eat and they were right, food was great plus the view makes it more relaxing. Not that bad for a b&b but if i can choose, i will stay in a boutique hotel rather.

Thank you, Rosalie for your candid review. It seems that you made reference to the previous owners of Olana. Please note that there was a change of ownership in December 2017 and that there is a new management since March 2018. We encourage you to come to see us again this year as we strive to improve our service and provide to our guests a very enjoyable experience. We hope to see you soon! Lorenzo and Nelda

Olana. Where to start about this bed and breakfast. Like the title says. Heaven on earth.I could tell about the beautiful sights The Philippines have to offer,
but sights are not alone needed for a place like heaven.
Its te people who make a place even more beautiful and who can give you the time of your life.

It all started when I contacted the owners Doug and Angie. Because of my personal journey ( Reunion with my biological family after 25 years) I needed a place,
where I could lay myself to rest when the journey would be as amazing as emotional as well. I didnt need a big fancy hotel but just a place where there would be a calm environment, no haist or other distractions.

From the moment Dough and Angie responded to me they were very honest about their bed and breakfast. They told me this was not a big fancy hotel with no karaoke et cetera.. but they even mentioned the hotels which had more amusement if needed.
Not only that but also the way they thought thinks trough with me and my family, even before I did go to The Philippines.

That feeling to be welcome and not knowing much about the country and my birthplace they could already tell me where to go and what to do in order when I would arrive. They gave me so much trust in them and their bed and breakfast even when they do not know you in person but only by e-mail.

When we arrived they Doug welcomed as, and immediatly showed us the way around in their bed and breakfast. But what is to admire is that they keep count with every guest there is. Not only Doug and Angie but Also their employees Reynold and Naomi, will make sure you wont come short anything.
If it is day or in the midlle of the night, someone always was walking around to guide you but also talk with you about the day or answer your questions.

One day Doug and Angie took us into the city Lingayen. Just in their car..to show us where we could find an atm and other local things to see.
That kindness is more than being a hotel host. They became friends.

Everyday a delicious breakfast in traditional philippines food or western style.
With fresh fruits and drinks. Never one complaint to work again, but working with a heart full of love. They supported me in my emotional journey just to hang around and talk with me about my family et cetera.
It was this compassion they share with everyone which makes me say this place is a little bit of what I might hope heavens looks like.

Also the bedrooms where really neat. They always asked us when to clean or if we need extras. Its one thing to be a bed and breakfast where you want to provide in good food, hygiene and comfort, but its a whole other level when the staff can be personal with you and there is a trust in one another.

They once arranged a bus for my family 1 night before I wanted to go on a trip and still they managed to arrange this for me and helped me with the busdrivers locations et cetera.

Its needless to say, I had the time of my life with finding my family,
but therefore It was and is very important to have a place where I could withdraw myself from all the hectic moments. Therefore I want to thank Doug, Angie, Reynold, Naomi for being a blessing in my journey in their bed and breakfast.

Joreme

We stayed at Olana B&B in Labrador,Pangasinan. The place is accessible from Manila,just about 5 hrs of travel time depending on the traffic and time of day. We arrived minutes earlier than the 3 pm check in time,to our surprise we were given a refreshing iced tea by Ate Gigi. Then proceeded to stay at the elevated bamboo cottage,while waiting for Doug & Angie. Needless to say, we loved that bamboo cottage which is overlooking Lingayen Gulf,on that spot alone we you will feel the calming sea breeze, experience the soothing sunrise and calming sound of the waves.

We met Doug & Angie, who both were so wonderful, welcoming and very accomodating. They gave us tips and recommendations on the tourist areas near and around the place and shared their insights in making sure that we enjoy our visit in the area. During our 1st night, we went to Teblong, (which is 1 of the recommended places to eat by Doug&Angie),one of the Olana staff Kuya Dante was kind enough to give us directions to the area,by making sure we get a trike ride to Teblong, which is a few minutes ride northwest of Olana. The restaurant serves Filipino and German cuisines,we were lucky to have met and talked with Michael the owner,who was equally kind and generous.

The breakfast in Olana was really delectable and satisfying as we had it on the bamboo cottage overlooking the sea during our stay. We took Doug's advice and went to the scenic 100 Islands in Alaminos,which is roughly an hour bus ride northwest of Olana. The island hopping experience was truly memorable for us.

Lastly we had dinner prepared by Angie,who is really a great cook,the chopsuey and grilled tuna were so delicious and fresh.

If you want peace of mind,privacy,a place to relax and unwind then Olana will really suit you,to have met and known the staff and owners is already a blessing.

To Doug & Angie and the staff, thank you for making our stay truly worthwhile,comfortable and memorable!!

this is excellent, exactly as the name says bed and breakfast, great view of the ocean, great food, you request what meal you would like and they fix, owners is very friendly as with his wife, rooms are quaint, with tv (local channels only), hot and cold shower, also the owner can arrange a boat to 100 islands in alminos for php1500, thats an all day tour and excellent in all ways, we went to a few of the other resorts like covelandia, but wow that place is horrible, review to my tripadvisor on covelandia.

i suggest you stay here when in pangasinan, the owner knows where the othe attractions are located

Yep. All guest rooms are air-conditioned. No one has ever commented about them being "noisy." Olana is "homey" in the sense that it is a small, family run bed & breakfast with just 4 rooms set in a garden on the shores of Lingayen Gulf. It's a quiet, peaceful setting. More of a "home-stay" experience than "resort" experience.
Answer from GardenofOrchids

There is family room with one queen bed and bunk beds, perfect for 2 children. Rates include VAT. The rate depends on the date, so please contact Olana for details. Sorry, contact info such as website and email address is not permitted on Trip Advisor. Check Olanaphilippines website.
Answer from Douglas C

It depends on whether you take public transportation or private vehicle. Public transportation would be busses to Dagupan, and then to Labrador. Take any bus heading to Alaminos or Bolinao, and it will drop you off right in front of Olana's gate (2 kilometers past the town of Labrador). The busses would cost around 300 pesos. A private vehicle would cost around 3,000 pesos.

Transportation via private vehicle is available from Olana to the Quezon City/Manila area for about 5000 pesos. Best regards.
