Going by the pictures the room appears good. Almost like a 4-star hotel. Upon check-in however they remove the comforter and replace with blankets. I'm not sure why.
The staff in general were neither friendly nor overly rude, except for one person (Gina- I think that's her name) who took our orders for breakfast and helped with our luggage. She seems to be the only one who is 'switched-on' and doing most of the work.
On the second day after a whole day out, we returned to a room that has not be cleaned. When we inquired, the reply was 'you did not leave out the "please make-up room" sign'. I would imagine that's standard practice for housekeeping to make up the room every day unless you leave a sign out 'do not disturb'
The location of the resort appears very near the beach - but you have to walk about 10 minutes along a path that is pitch dark at night (so bring along a torch-light) and across a 'private property'. The alternative route is to walk out to the main road (in the opp direction) and use the regular road leading into Alona beach.
Will I stay in Alona42 Resort again should I revisit Panglao? I think very unlikely.More
