It was perfect! The last two months my friends and I traveled around Asia and saw a lot of resorts. This one was definitely one of the best we saw in this time periode. Daniela and Hanpi (the owners) and the rest of the crew were so kind and we felt very welcomed. We spent there two nights and it was amazing:
- breakfast + dinner delicious
- room very clean
- ocean view
- at the Resort no beach BUT perfect for snorkling: colorful, beautiful fishes and corals
- you get the equipment for snorkling for free
- you also can dive here

If you are looking for a place to relax and to enjoy every second you have to stay here for a couple of days. The whole crew will help you to realize this feeling. We wished we had more days left for this place.

Thank you Daniela, Hanpi and the rest of the crew for our three days. It was awesome!

Some say when you go to Bohol you have to stay on Panglao, Alona Beach. Well... Been there, done that. Won't do it again. This European run, small resort on the Anda side of Bohol is a place I'd pick any day over Panglao. It's small, but very spacious, and right at the ocean front. The room I stayed in was as well spacious, and clean, with private bathroom (hot & cold shower), with fan. But even in the hot season that's enough.
There's a small SSI dive shop on location, professionally run by one of the managers. We brought our own equipment, but their rental equipment looked solid and well maintained (they have JetFins as rental equipment, really!!). Dive boat is a big, comfortable boat, and they take you out to one of the better walls around Bohol. I thought it better than Balicasag (but I realize that's personal). Lunch and coffee on the boat, with a good chat among divers. Super relaxed atmosphere.
Management and staff are super friendly and very helpful.

Oh, and... yacuzi, anyone? That's a comfort after the dives!

Warmly recommended. Much better than the madness of Alona Beach.

My stay in the Philippines will be memorable having a beautiful cottage with a sea view. This is a wonderful place to stay if you wish a quiet, natural, healing environment. Swimming is more enjoyable if you prefer deep water over shallow beaches. You will get personalized attention from owners Daniele and Hampi. The restaurant serves delicious food and coffee that can be difficult to find in some villages.

We found this resort by coincidence because we needed a place to sleep. The Swiss owners are kind and friendly. We stayed 2 nights in a beautiful room with view over the sea. Down the resort are some rocks where you can go perfectly snorkelling. The resort is not the cheapest but definitely not expensive. The quiet surroundings and scenery are priceless. If we again need a place to stay in this Bohol area we surely come back here.

So first impression is to walk in to a giant bungalow. We arrived in the rain so Hampi and Daniele (owners) welcomed us with a banana smoothie in the restaurant area. From start they were very caring and welcoming and sat down to chat with us and see to it that we felt well at ease. Note the rain gave up we were given a short tour to our bungalow room.

The hospitality went on like this and you always felt welcome to sit down and chat about everything and nothing.

It is a small but nice resort built around a beautiful well maintained garden that includes sun chairs and a hot tub. Since the resort is built on a cliff it is a stair down to the ocean. There is no real beach but there is a nice pier you can relax on and you can always snorkel out to the nice house reef.

The room are spacious and fells fresh. Toilets are well cleaned and shower is equipped with warm water heater.

Food is very good and the staff went over and beyond to cater for us that are vegetarian.

The diving operation is wonderful and I ended up taking my SSI Stress and rescue course here with a wonderful instructor. (Thnx friend)

The only negative thing that I can say is that the bed was uncomfortable. We addressed this to the owners and they arranged some extra madrases that helped a bit, but it was still a bit hard for the back.
