        Only a 5 min walk to Alona Beach, but also on the quiet side of the area - very easy access to restaurants and shops but still a haven away from all the busyness. Everyone at the hotel was so helpful and kind and I would recommend it in a heartbeat!

        Gem in Alona”

        This hotel, in my option was the best value for price in the area. It is set just back from the chaos of alona, on a piece of property with a relaxing vibe. It is walking distance to the beach and restaurants. Everything was clean, the beds were comfortable and water and a kettle were in the rooms. Our only complaint was not about the hotel but about Alona Beach in general. It is crazy busy and touristy and not a relaxing place to visit. If you are looking for total peace try Dumaluan Beach.

        + My first experience was great so i visited again. Kind owner & staffs, spacious & clean room. Also a big fridge. What i really liked was that there is a place you can hang your wet clothes for dry. The room is spacious, i think it is appropriate for a family. - TV wasn't working. The residence has no restaurant (but its ok, there are plenty around)

        Recommended!”

        My initial reason/s for booking: It was the best-rated property in the Alona Beach area during my stay, given the price. Duration of stay: 4 nights First impressions: The property offers apartment-type accommodations that’s a 15-minute walk from the nearest tourist destination, Alona Beach. It suited my needs because the reason I’d traveled to Panglao was to attend a beach wedding in a resort I couldn’t afford to stay in. It’s not the best match for travelers whose highest priorities would be to hang out at the beach & mix with the tourist crowd; but anyone looking for a clean, spacious, well-furnished room at a budget price should consider staying here. Later realizations: The walking distance between this property and Alona Beach would have bothered me more if Alona was as lively as Boracay’s famous White Beach. But… it wasn’t. Will I recommend it? Yes

        Lovely place, really close by to shops, bars and restaurants. Staff were friendly and helpful however I didn’t like that they frequently go into your room when you are not there which made me uncomfortable to leave anything out in the room. Had I been told that they frequently check, I would have expected it and not worried but it was a little uncomfortable. Other than that, good staff, accommodation and location, would recommend!!!

        Room on second floor (deluxe). Big fridge and a nice balcony to enjoy self made breakfast. You can also wash og dry your own wet clothes from the beach on your private clothesline at the west balcony. New air conditioning from may 2018. Even though the walk to the beach isn’t that long, it’s a little pricy for its lacation.

        Clean, but very basic apartment. They should provide drinking water to be more environmental friendly. It's about 5 min direct to the beach, 10 minutes walking along the big road to McDonald.

        My best stay in a hotel ever!!!”

        The very hospitable, accomodating, friendly and charming hotel owner, the friendly staff and the nice, clean rooms

        I had a very nice and pleasant stay at Panglao Island Franzen Residences. The location was good, far from the crowds but close enough to walk to the beach. But what made our stay very pleasant was the very accommodating hotel owner who went out of her way to attend to our needs. She was up at 2:00 a.m. to bring us to town because our group joined the Bohol International Marathon I would definitely stay in this hotel again when I go back to Panglao Island.

        If your looking for a quiet, and yet walking distance to all the activities you've come to the right place. Clean and spacious room, safe and secured place, immediate response to all your needs as owners manages the place, friendly and very accommodating as we had early checked out and requested to leave our baggages in their care while we went on a tour. Bigger fridge than what is usually provided in some hotels and a place to hang your wet clothes after a swim in the beach. I feel bad on spending my first day with one of the expensive resort when franzen can surpass the services they offered. Although dining are not available, chains of restaurants are within walking distance. I strongly recommend this place. Will surely come back with the whole family.

        Greatest kept secret in Bohol”

        The staff was courteous, kind, helpful and went out of their way to ensure our needs were met. The rooms were well maintained and cleaned daily. These rooms had a bathroom, bedroom and a special section in the back for those who needed to clean scuba or beach clothing. The front of the room had a table and electrical sockets for breakfast or to watch the sunset. The property maintained security throughout the 24 hours with one of their staff members always watching the gates. The Wi-Fi was good enough for me to complete 3 of my PADI e-learning courses and watch movies on Netflix. There were three types of breakfast, large portions and inexpensive by western standards. The staff, if requested by customers, can order taxis, trikes or even private taxis to any areas on the island. Finally, on the last day my gf became very ill due to food poisoning from a private excursion with a company on Alona Beach. While I went to the pharmacy, the staff assisted my girlfriend w/o hesitation.
