Staff makes your stay great”

Staff girls are really cool, helpful and lovely. All rooms are very spacious , clean and comfort. Very near to Alona beach and you can book your Bohol tours with them little cheaper compared to outside travel agencies. We didn't find any Indian restaurant near by to have some spicy food for our dinner then the staff helped us providing the necessary ingredients and vegetables to cook for ourselves in their kitchen. This turned our stay at Bananaland Cottages more comfortable. They accommodated our request to change to another room without any additional charges. We first stayed Nipahut Cottage Room is old Filipino traditional house, the challenge with this house is, ants if you throw food on the floor and moths if you switch on light in the night time. Next day, we changed to an apartment room. If we go to Bohol again, this is the place to go for sure.

Perfect”

This place is amazing. 2 minutes walking distance to the best part of Alona beach (if you take the shortcut pass for 100 pesos, valid for the entire stay, really worth it). Really quiet and peaceful, away from the night life noises. The staff is super friendly, and they will help you to organize your airport transfer. Pictures and description match perfectly the reality. If I go back to Bohol I will definitely stay here again.

Hammock outside, cottages are set in a beautiful garden. Lots of cute dogs to pet! Would highly recommend staying here if at Alona Beach.

Complete ”

If you don't mind walking much to the beach, then this is a perfect place for the budget conscious. The grand apartment is great for family or a big group. The space was amazingly hugem it has itvs own walk-in closet! The drying area is huge enough, and kitchen is well ventilated. When you say kitchen - itvs the complete one with usable pots and pans, utensils. Even drinking water is provided. The room is cleaned everyday by courteous staff. Wifi is a bit off, and no tv. But we didn't mind because we wanted to get off the grid for a while. We enjoyed our stay here and will probably book again if we need some off-the-grid r&r.

Love bananaland”

We had a great time at bananaland, our room was huge and we loved the king size bed we had! We had a gallon of water in our little kitchen which was perfect for refilling our water bottle before heading out for excursions. There’s a cute little store underneath if you need anything extra like shampoo/ramen/playing cards and beer!

Very friendly staff that seem happy to help with excursions and fun! Space is quite surprisingly large and lovely and even has a little kitchen and area to do laundry and hang dry clothes. Close enough to the action of the city center to walk but not too close to be noisy at night, was a bit of walk to beach though as you have to walk around to get to the beach but it was ok as not difficult. The price and all the other great things make up for that. The family owned feeling is very much felt and appreciated! I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to everyone!!

Great place to stay with quick access to the beach!”

We stayed in an unexpectedly huge room (full apprtment) and had a lovely balcony with hammock that overlooked the jungle-ish feel of the garden! For a small additional price you can buy beach access passes so that you can cut through one of the resorts (which worked very well). The owner and staff were super friendly and helpful, all in all good value for money and definitely recommended!

Beautiful little cottages in a secluded garden”

We loved the cottages at Bananaland. The location is fantastic, just a couple of minutes walk from the beach and the many bars and restaurants at Alona Beach. To take the shortcut to the beach you buy a pass for 100 pesos which allows you to walk through a beach front resort as and when you wish. This was totally worth the money. The cottages have large spacious balconies with a fridge, hammock, fan and aircon. The garden area is very peaceful and beautiful. Staff were pleasant. Highly recommended as good value accommodation near the beach.

A little gem of a place”

We really enjoyed our stay at bananaland cottages over the Chritmas period (5 days ) and were made very welcome by Steffan and his staff. We stayed in the main building and had a wonderful family room which was spacious,and well equiped with comfortable beds and air con,as well as a lovely balcony and hammock. The location is very close to the beach,yet far enough away to be disturbed by exterior noise,and is within walking distance of the main part of town. We spent a couple of days travelling around with a hired motor bike from the reception,and Steffan proved to be very helpfull with advice,and shared a couple of good nights chatting with him over a beer or 2 in the evening which was a laugh! Breakfast is available at a reasonable cost,its basic but very tasty as well as fresh coffee. All in all if you want to stay somewhere a little different,and are not put off by a few mosquitoes (it is Asia and you get them everywhere) then I would not hesitate to recommend bananaland....thanks
