We were in Bohol in 2004 and during that time, we stayed at Alona Palm Beach Resort and Restaurant. At the time that we booked with them, they were efficient in answering e-mails and in taking care of our reservations.

Alona Palm is about 30 minutes from the airport. Their rooms are very spacious. Food is good although the choices are quite limited (if you are staying for several days) and more European than Filipino in taste as they have a foreign chef.

They can help you arrange your Bohol tours. You can enjoy the beach as Alona Beach (named after movie star Alona Alegre, I think, who used to frequent the place if am not mistaken) is a stretch of white sand where you have several resorts located one after the other. Just like Boracay though, as you stay on the beach, you will be bothered from time to time by individuals offering their wares or boating services, among others. If you get tired of the beach, there’s always the pool.
