the pool was ok
swim in the ocean not possible
the restaurant not the best so we vent to another hotel
and eat in breakfast and evening
we vent to Alona beach to wsim
ocean view, near the city Tagbilaran, new townhouse as room
no beach, but you can swim. The hotel is not far from Tagbilaran, but it is also pretty isolated for the circle road, approx 1.5 kms. So to beg a ride to reach this main road. From there, have many jeegney to the city at 10-15 minutes drive. Good food, but can be restricted if few clients at hotel. Nice swimming pool. Ideal for romance and peaceful stay. No night life.
“nice place but not beachfront”
Staff was very friendly, place was clean, nice view of the ocean
We were very excited about our stay in Bohol, but found this resort too far from other activities and places on the island. Located in the middle of nowhere, our only form of transportation was what was provided by the resort, for a fee that was far more than we were expecting to pay. We were not near any beaches, any restaurants, anything at all. If you are looking for a very quiet place, this is it. However, there's nothing to do. They have a menu, but the food wasn't very good. They say they can call you a massage, we didn't try it. Basically it's a clean place to stay in a beautiful setting, but you're very secluded and can't do anything on your own. They did not have our booking information...from what I understand there has very recently been a change in management, so they were surprised to know that we were coming. Flor, the new manager, is very friendly and very helpful. It has all the makings for a great place, it's just not there yet.
“Beautifully locatec atop coral cliffs”
Landscaped gardens, view over the ocean, good size swimming pool.
wonderful location and beautifully landscaped gardens.
but, unfortunately, very poorly organised:
- they were not expecting me and did not have my booking
- towels were not available at first
- water was not connected for first hour
- tv not connected
- no food on premises although they have restaurant facilities
- no mini-bar although it was advertised
- no wifi in rooms, although available at reception area
- not easy to find as no signage off main coastal road
- no eating establishments nearby
- need car to get around otherwise you are stuck!
pity, because layout of resort and views over the ocean are stunning.
“hotel was ok ”
the staff was very accommodating, the rooms have privacy
we were surprised and disappointed when we found out that the resort hotel was quite far from the panglao white beach. but, we appreciate the fact that the staff was accommodating enough to arrange the transportation. they were all friendly and courteous.
“Nice remote place”
quiet, clean pool, friendly staff
nice and quiet place. space, bed and airconditioning is okay. friendly staff. didn't unload our clothes in the closet, needs upgrading. no cable tv but there's free wifi in the dining area.
“Lovelt Hotel and resort”
beach and swimming pool
hidden coral divers resort is perfect for honeymoon and family trip. each room is in a bongalo/single detach type far from other rooms with private swimming pools; one for adult and one for children. overlooking beach and good experience of sunset. you can asked your dinner in a cottage with candle lights. you will wake in the morning and experience sunrise while having your breakfast.
“Really HIDDEN and holds surprises!”
Staff are very reasonable and accommodating. Place is rather isolated and requires a personal service vehicle.
“2 thumbs up”
ok for your budget
we enjoy our stay and we will come back again on april for another family vacation.
Beautiful, quiet, friendly staff
We did not realize how far this hotel was from the main attraction on Panglao Island, (Alona Beach) when we first stayed here. The area is beautiful, right on a coral reef, with amazing wildlife and a beautiful view, but it is a 25 minute drive from Alona Beach and about a 20 minute drive from Tagbilaran city.
We stayed here to do some diving, but quickly found that it was not as easy as we had hoped. After asking at the dive shop for 3 days, we were eventually told that their dive instructor only spoke Japanese, and we should probably look elsewhere. They did at this point offer to help us find an English speaking instructor, but we had had enough, and decided to leave early.
The staff was extremely accommodating to our vegan diet, and they were very helpful and friendly about everything, even the fact that we were leaving early.
I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking to stay away from the hustle and bustle of Alona. We rented a motorbike relatively cheap while we were there, and traveling back and forth wasn't too bad. It is important however that you realize that you are pretty far from it all. There is one attraction that is very close, a subterranean cave.
