      very good resort for a budget price”

      great and big pool, also motorbikes for rent, friendly and nice people, personal treatment

      there are 2 complex side by side, one which was refurbished and a new building in u-shape, which is located behind the old renovated building. the deluxe rooms are in the new u-shape complex, appr. 30 m2 with a small kitchen and big refrigerator. Dont expect a 3 or 4 star resort, but for the price you pay you get a lot more value back. the resort is not on the beach located, but they offer a transport by tricycle on request for 10 Pesos (almost nothing). a great plus and very convenient is the rent of motorbikes, which cost 300 pesos per day (Euro 6,00) almost new Honda 125 bikes, and with that you are independent, even explore island of bohol or other locations.

      This is the second time we extended our stay at this hotel waiting for good weather to see the Tarsiers. As we departed hotel we soon have realized that we left some of our clothes at the hotel and they were nice to mail them to the next hotel at our trip. Thanks!!! Like it was mentioned earlier the hotel has all necessary components for a comfort stay in Bohol if you don't mind walking a bit to the main beach with lots of crazy noise and crowds.

      The room was well maintained, their staff were accommodating and the place is peaceful.

      We stayed at the alona studios hotel for three nights. It was generally peaceful and clean. The rooms were well maintained. Superior room is big enough for two people it's actually spacious. They have good wifi service and local cable tv their pool is clean and we had a great time bumming there. I would recommend this place to those who value privacy and those who prefer to relax and stay away from the hustle and bustle of the city. However, it is a bit too far from the alona beach but they can call a trike that will drop you to the beach area.

      Quite neighborhood, small kitchen with kettle, wifi, clean rooms

      The hotel was a short walk from the main touristy area where the main beach was located. For some it's a disadvantage, but we actually looked for a deal like that. Hidden a midst locals the hotel has to buildings both with swimming pools and wifi. The rooms were clean and comfortable to stay for a longer time thanks to the small kitchen and a fridge. If you are not keen on walking to the main attraction are, tricycles can be arranged by the hotel staff. There are also small houses or cottages nearby that are available for rent. Though food can be arranged at the hotel, we ate outside or bought snacks at the small fruit stands in the main area.

      Quiet, Clean and Neat

      I stayed in the family suite. It was clean and neat. It caters for all you need, and a hot water shower. If you need anything more, then you're probably not a mid-range budget traveler. There is a beautiful large swimming pool, neatly kept. People are friendly and accommodating. It's about a 20 minute walk from the main Alona beach, but its relaxing and healthy, you can rent a motorcycle for 400 pesos a day if you prefer not to walk. At night the way may be a bit dark with poor lighting, but all mobile phones has a flashlight these days. There is a bar which serves breakfast. 50 pesos will get you a great omelette.

      Nice studio, close to the beach”

      nice studio in a quite location at walking distance to the beach

      the best place we stayed in the philippines, the studios are nice and equipped with fridge kettle some plates and dishes. it is 5-10 minutes walk to alona beach which makes it a very convenient location and at the same time very quiet surrounded by green and calm atmosphere. it has a pool that is nice an an alternative if you dont want to walk to the beach one day. we love it!!! dont eat at the restaurant of the studio, it is expensive and portions are small. it does not included breakfast but preparing your own at the balcony is a nice option

      Great place to stay”

      Nice staff and owner. Nice pool. Large rooms with fridge.

      most probably our best stay in the philippines was had here. we were in the philippines for 3 weeks and spent our last 5 nights here. it in close proximity to the beach. if you can't be bothered to go there, it's nice to relax with a san miguel by the pool. the owner and staff were friendly and informative. you can also rent motorcycle or book tours directly from this place to take in the sites in bohol. all in all a nice place to stay
