      After I checked out the hotel, I lost my cellphone in tricycle. So I came back there and ask staff. The owner of hotel tried to ask all of the tricycle driver in Bohol and tried to find my cellphone. The staff cheered me. Unfortunately I couldn't find it but I was very happy because they efforted to search it for me. Also they told me how to get to Panglao and caught the tricycle. And the breakfast was nice. I appriciate for their kindness. Next time I visit to Bohol, I want stay here again. Salamat.

      Great Place Near Tagbilaran Port”

      We booked this hotel as we need a place near the port, this is like 3 minutes away to the port (via Tricycle - since its hot day we took Tricycle) we paid like 20 pesos for the ride. Very basic room, bed, towels, TV, private bathroom, the staff - very accommodating. We encountered slight issue with the air-condition, it took time to get it going so we had to request for electric fan, but overall experience it is good for the money you paid for.
