“bohol on a budget”
Reviewed 4 May 2008

Alonaland is a great option if you want a comfortable place to stay in Bohol without paying too much.
It's not beach front property but it's only 5 minutes from the beach if you pass through Alona Tropical, which was my first option for me and my family. But a pool suite for 5 people at Alona Tropical would have cost me P6,000 a night while Alonaland had a family house for P2,000 and it had 1 aircon room, cable TV, hot water, a kitchenette with pots and plates, and a ref.
I was pleasantly surprised at how large our place was. It had 2 beds in the aircon room and 2 beds upstairs but since it got really hot during the afternoons, we all moved into the aircon room.
Be warned though that most resorts in Panglao, including Alonaland have rather salty tap water.
My only complaint about our house would be that the toilet area has no drainage so if you spill outside the shower area, the water pretty much stays there.

We wanted to book the Flower Garden Resort but it was already full so we went to the Alona Land Resort which is near it.

Things I liked about Alonaland Resort, Tawala, Panglao
1. Location - a 5-minute walk from the widest and best part of Alona Beach; quiet.
2. Big room, great budget price -we paid P1,500 for an airconditioned room with two double beds, hot and cold shower, a small kitchen, a refrigerator.
3. Lawn was landscaped and clean; with hammocks, too.
4. A grocery is walking distance away and a small wet market is accessible by tricycle.
5. Accessible to commuters--From the Tagbilaran airport or pier, take the tricycle and go to the Tagbilaran Bus terminal near the Bohol museum; from there, take the hourly bus to Panglao (be sure to specify that you are going to Tawala, otherwise, the bus will go the longer route). Get down at Rona's Corner grocery where there are tricycles that can take you to Alona Land (or any other resort in tawala). The whole trip will not cost more than Php70 (compared to about Php500 if you get a taxi to take you).
6. Owner and staff were pleasant and quick to help

Things I disliked
The bed, pillows, and sheets were old and not very comfortable. They also gave us towels but we didn't use them as they looked so sorry too.

By the way , the mineral content of the water was so high that whenever we took a bath, we couldn't get our shampoo and soap to bubble.

Stayed February 2007
