No, I haven't. I prefer to stay closer to Alona Beach, or somewhere that provides a motorbike so I can get to Alona Beach. The resort looks a bit isolated, have you read the reviews? The pictures look nice, but I never spend much time hanging about a hotel or resort
Hi, thanks for the reply, what do you think about Lost Horizon Beach Resort,
I haven't stayed at Lost Horizon, but it is definitely located in the midst of the activities. Easy walking distance to all the restaurants, bars, dive shops, etc. I have been to the beachfront bar there quite a few times during happy hour.
Alona Tropical Resort is at the quieter end of the beach, but still within easy walking distance of everything worth walking to. I haven't stayed there, but my elderly mother & auntie did enjoy their stay there
Hi, i can get rooms at the Lost Horizon, and im keen,but the reviews are not all that great. Can i ask your recommendations on where you have stayed?
Well, I can tell you where I've stayed, but that's not to say it's a recommendation.
I've stayed a couple of times at Bohol Divers Resort, which is on Alona Beach. They have a range of accommodations there, but I stayed in a Standard Room, which has a bucket & ladle (cold) shower, and noisy old aircon that barely has an impact. In retrospect I would have been better off in a slighlty smaller fan room for about half the price. The resort is located on a quieter part of the beach, just a few minutes walk from the main area. Overall it's quite a good resort, with a decent restaurant, nice pool, a beachside bar, and a family friendly beach disco on friday & saturday nights
I stayed once Bohol Sunside Resort. The rooms were much newer, with good aircon, a little barfridge, a tv, and a proper roomsafe. The resort is not really within walking distance of Alona Beach, but guests can have the use of a motorscooter, and they operate a shuttle bus to & from the beach. It's a nice little place, but it was the roomsafe & the motorscooter that really interested me.
I've also stayed at a few places in Tagbilaran, and in other parts of Bohol
Location wise , both Alona Tropical Resort & Lost Horizon are better for beach access & proximity to shops & restaurants...
Alona Tropical is more expensive & luxurious than Lost Horizon but sometimes they host big tour groups..
Along Alona Beach , i've only stayed at Trudis Place , a smaller single building beachfront guesthouse just beside the bigger Lost Horizon...
Be careful that Lost Horizon do not allocate you rooms located at their Annexe Building(further away)..
Mostly , i stay at the more remote Dumaluan Beach & Libaong Beach...
But the remoteness may not be suitable for everyone though i feel that the beach is quieter & cleaner here(becos there is less resorts & restaurants along the beachfront)...
At meal times & for evening drinking sessions , i travel to Alona Beach via a cheap 50 ~ 70pesos habal habal(motorbike taxi) ride...
Which are the other resorts that you are considering now?
