    Nice Accomodation


    At PhP800(US$15) a night, we got a 20sqm non-airconditioned room with two queen sized beds in a garden. They enforce a noise ban so the guests get to listen to the sounds of nature at night.

    They have bigger and more expensive cottages, and they have smaller and cheaper rooms.

    Unique Quality: They have a couple of swimming pools for when you don't want to be in salt water. They have an in-house dive shop, a tattoo shop, beach volleyball, al fresco dining at night right in front of the beach, and their just a few steps away from the rest of the action along Alona Beach.

    The main compound of this resort has a nice location and view of the beach, it has swimming pool exclusively for guests. I booked my friends here, but the available fan rooms are located at the annex which is not beach front. Fan room costs 800pesos a night. Other rooms and villas costs 2800-6000 pesos a night.

    Unique Quality: Pool, restaurant,great views

    La Residencia


    We stayed at La Residencia. The la residencia is the best accommodation in Divers resort. Bungalow type, airconditioned room with private swimming pool for the residents of the La Residencia only (no person can use the swimming except those who accommodated the La Residencia).

    Located at upper part ng hotel but still 2 minute walk only to the beach. The accommodation is complete with cooking equipment, kitchen utensils and mineral water. Visitors of La Residencia is provided with private “yaya” or housekeeper who will answer your need if ever you want anything during your stay at the La residencia for free.

    The walls of the bungalow is made of glass (full view of garden and swimming pool). The room is airconditioned and also has cable television, private bath tub with hot and cold shower, and refrigerator. The room is big and comfortable for 5 pax. The bungalow has extension room with door (intended for the kids). 2 pax can stay at the extension room.

    The resort hotel has mini bar/coffee shop and diving shop.

    Unique Quality: - Friendly staff
    - Awesome food
    - La Residencia accommodation is fronting swimming pool.

    For those who want a more peaceful place to stay in a beachfront resort, you can check out the de luxe rooms with garden view of Bohol Diver's Resort. The first time I stayed in Bohol Diver's, I chose the room beside the beach. The second time, I opted for a different surrounding, stayed in the garden view room and I did not regret it. I woke up in a very serene place, a nice garden and a good view of the sea.

    The garden view rooms are of native cottage type, like those in Alona Tropical. From the beach, there is a concrete stair which will lead you to the garden.

    Directions: It is located at the western side of Alona Beach. There is an access road from the main road which will lead to the front gate of the resort. It can also be reached through the beach.

    The rooms are more of the basic type with bed, closet and bathroom. There are rooms located at the beach front, the de luxe rooms are located in the garden and the executive ones are located near the front gate. .

    Resort in Alona Beach


    The facilities are above par, swimming pool, outdoor restaurant/bar, and the staff are friendly. The rooms are pretty big, especially the rest room. You have a big bath with hot water. The cost is 3000Php per night, pretty high for other places to stay in Alona Beach.

    Unique Quality: Pool, great views, and clean ground.

More about Bohol Divers Resort

Spacious Rooms Indeed!

by nimato about Tierra Azul

Tierra Azul Beach Houses is a fairly nice accomodation along the southern end of Alona Beach. Slightly hidden from the beach front, the guesthouse's entrance marker is just a few steps to the left of the more popular Bohol Divers' Resort. Tierra Azul boasts of its spacious rooms and has friendly, helpful staff.

Aircon (ground level) and non-aircon (upper level) rooms with breakfast go for P1500 and P800, respectively. Discounts can be availed during off-peak. Though the staffs are friendly and helpful, their availability is only until 9pm. The reception closes at this time and resumes 6am in the morning. The guesthouse has a small restaurant on the upper level facing the beach. However, it only serves breakfasts for guests.

Not just for divers!!!

by kiminyut about Bohol Divers Resort

Bohol Divers Resort occupies a big chunk of property along the western tip of Alona beach. In terms of length, it is probably as long as Isis Bungalows, Playa Blanca and Lost Horizon combined (maybe a little shorter if not equeal ;>).

According to our tour guide, Bohol Divers is one of the first resorts in Alona together with Alona Kew. It was previously named Philippine Island Divers Lodge then Bohol Divers Lodge and now Bohol Divers Resort. Divers - always part of its name, thus, it doesn't appeal as a resort/hotel getaway for those after simple rest and relaxation. So is it only suited for divers? Definitely not!!!

The resort has several types of accommodation namely, La Residentia, Villa Suite, Chalet, Executive Room, De Luxe Room (non-aircon) and Superior Room (non-aircon). De Luxe, Chalet and Villa Suite (where we stayed) are all ultimate beachfront rooms while the rest are in a garden compound with the La Residentia (most expensive) located in an exclusive compound with its own pool. Another pool, for use of guests in the other room types, sits at the middle of the compound facing the beach and sandwiched between the Villa Suite and the restaurant. The pool has 4ft and 9ft depths and is also used for diving lessons.

The Villa Suite is perfect for families as it is spacious (same goes with its bathroom), has aircon, TV and mini ref. It probably was designed to be pretty but since its not so new, some furniture and fixtures had wornt out. Its not first class but decent and kept clean by the staff daily.

I would say the resort is well-maintained in terms of cleanliness. Its facade looks good since they have a staff assigned to keep its long beachfront clean until mid-afternoon. With this, its good to look at compared to other beachfronts.

Aside form a dive shop, 2 pools and a restaurant, it also has a volleyball court, a playground, a bar and sunbathing area between the pool and the beach. Long clean (most of the time) beachfront/facade, pool and other recreational facilities. Having a pool is a good "back-up" when the waves are not so friendly, specially if you have small children with you.

An Unexpected Budget Find

by Quennie about Bohol Divers Resort

As usual we embarked on a trip without making any reservations, only the limit on how much were willing to spend on accomodations. When we reached Bohol, we visited the Tourist Booth and signed their guestbook. We hired a tricycle and we were on our way to Panglao Island. We told the driver that we dont have any resort reservation but could he please help us find a reasonable but secure one. After trying 3 resorts, all beyond our set budget, the last resort recommended Bohol Divers and said that there are garden rooms. We rushed to the said resort and got a room. It was a twin sharing fan room, its compact but clean. Catch: no television and we have to share the toilet and bath with other guests. The toilet and bath was situated outside but was kept clean by the resort staff. A plus: a swimming pool, if you are not a fan of the beach you have an alternative. The restaurant overlooks the beach and the pool. The food is great, staff so helpful and the serving--catered for foreigners. So you just have to order an extra serving of rice and share the meal with your friend! Dont get me wrong, the food are reasonably priced, I just cant eat all that serving. They also have an internet cafe and of course, a dive shop.

Bohol Divers -- Highly Recommended!

Bohol Divers Resort

I found on the net that there's a tennis court at Bohol Divers Resort. Is this true? And can non-residents use it? We're planning to stay at Alona Palm, but they don't have a tennis court there. How far is Bohol Divers Resort from Alona Palm?

Thanks a lot and cheers.

Re: Bohol Divers Resort

I'm not sure about the tennis court at Bohol Divers Resort. But the two resorts are about 10-15 min walk from each other.

Another resort I found with tennis court is Bohol Tropics -- this one is in Tagbilaran City. A 30-minute ride from Alona Palm.
