Kalipayan Beach Resort
Ranked #42 of 50 Hotels in Panglao Island
Reviewed 14 February 2017 via mobile

Simple and cheap in a good location. A little away from the main beach front means you'll be able to relax in peace away from the crowds. Rooms are big, comfortable, clean but limited. No fridge, kettle and limited cupboard space. That said it was fine for us. Big garden to relax in and a small pool with a bar. Breakfasts were acceptable. Staff were friendly and helpful. All in all good value for money.

This place is definately for bohemian people! A nice , huge garden with a big pool, nice services and average rooms. A lot of expats use to book here, artists, bohemian doctors, old divers that come here starting 1993... Everything is very friendly , Alona beach is very close ( 50 m) . This place is really good for an old , good classic movie about happiness and easy rider people! Long live! :)

Room Tip: just ask about a room with frigo..it is enough! :)

I can't understand how they can charge so much for a room, but have sea salt water in the bathroom - both the sink and shower. It's very unpleasant when brushing your teeth and having a shower after being in the sea...felt unclean for days. Very quiet and can see why, it's right at the far end of Alona beach, to get to the main part of the beach, you have to either walk the long way round the main road or through some cliffs on the beach, the whole area is unlit at night, which is not ideal. Wouldn't recommend to stay here. Felt the price does not reflect the standard, compared to other places we stayed on Alona Beach.

We spent 3 nights in Kalipayan. My new iPhone was stolen on the first night.. The security guard was shooting shotgun (real bullets) to scarry me because I told the police that he could be the suspect... Owner behaved like he cared just to get rid of us. when we left under escort of 5 policemen because we requested so he stopped answering phone. Mr. Biebelmann, owner now picked up the phone to say "Don't call me ever again". After I came back to Poland I got facebook messages from random people saying that I if I go to Philipines again I will not make it alive... If you want to ruin your holidays - it's a great way to do it.
Hotel is below average, staff is not trustable and owner treats them like slaves. Screams, shouts, scares etc.
My holidays in paradise turned into nightmare. We were escorted by police from the island during the night. Mr. Biebelmann lied to us multiple times just to get rid of us.

Even if this would not happen, we would rate it 1 star. Salty water, very dirty. Shady people around. A little bit like slums. If you like this kind of stuff -it is place for you :) holidais ruined perfectly :( I am in process of raising two lawsiuts against the company and the owner.

Kalipayan is about a 5 minute walk along the beach from the main busy area of Alona Beach.
It does actually have access straight onto the beach from the resort.

the room was very spacious and had a small aircon unit and a ceiling fan.

The power did go off twice and the water was not on once. So make sure you have a torch and some big bottles of water.

There is a Dive Center there which I only visited to inquire about night dives but none available.

It has a nice swimming pool next to the bar/restaurant area.
I did not eat here so I cannot rate the food.

Watch out for big toads in the grass, they add to the adventure at night.

A pleasant stay. recommended for the price.
