Crystal Coast Resort
Panglao Island, Bohol
Great food in buffet. Not much food available any other time except breakfast, lunch and dinner, in case you get hungry anytime in between. Service was just satisfactory, not exemplary. One can get a good price on accommodation with full-board meals if you're travelling in a group. Hot/cold water in shower but salty, in fact wherever one tries to get beverage on this part of island is salty (salty fruitshakes, anyone?)
Unique Quality: Resort on cliff, great to take pictures and view the whole beach area from the resort. Pool was clean, cool and has very good view. Ok with kids too.
Directions: about 20 minutes from Tagbilaran
EASTERN ALONA BEACH II
Located at the tip of the eastern side of Alona Beach, Crystal Coast is one of the biggest seaside resorts in the area. It is close to 3 hectares atop the clifff overlooking the white sand beach of Alona. A seaside resort with an access stair which will lead you to the beach.

There are two ways to reach Crystal Coast, namely: 1. Through Ester Lim Street where the end of such street will bring you to the main gate of Crystal Coast; and 2. The beachfront where you have to use the access stair.
Room rates range from P1,500 to P4,000.
Unique Quality: If you want a more secluded sea side resort, away from the tourist milling the beach and a vantage point to view the whole stretch of Alona Beach, Crystal Coast is the place.
