Best nice beachfront ocean view room near the action?

A lot to ask here... but I've come down to Hayahay as being the best option in the under $75 or so range? Just doesn't sound like you really get a good view of the ocean unless you luck out... we don't mind the noise since these are the only 5 days we'll be at a "more action" area (and the kickoff when we'll have more energy for being out later at night), but are there some good resorts in this price range that could guarantee an ocean view at a good resort? We're fine to walk 10 min to the action (actually would be preferable), and would go up to $100 or so a night if it was a great spot, but would love a nice room to kick back and sit on the balcony and watch the water for some quiet time too if this combo exists! (Will be travelling at the end of February next year.. I like to plan ahead and secure the best spots early whenever possible!)

i'm not sure that there are many resort at Alona Beach where you can guarantee a room with an ocean view in that price range

the central section of the beach has restaurants, bars, dive operators, etc, along the shore line. maybe towards either end of the beach you can get rooms with views

Except for the word "Beach"

I have the perfect location for you. It is the Bohol Tropics.


P3150 for a Deluxe Horizon Suite. make sure you ask for a room with a king size bed. The deluxe horizon suites have balconies with table and chairs overlooking the swimming pool area, the bay, the sea, Panglao island and the pier in Tagbilaran.

The resort has

- free transfers to and from the pier or the airport

- tennis court

- children's playground

- games room

- disco, free for guests

- karaoke bar

- dive shops

- jet ski hire

- private pier

- 3 swimming pools. One is a kiddies pool and the main pool has a waterslide.

- The Cafe Atanacio which is open air but under cover overlooking the bay and Panglao Island. They have live music each night in the restaurant. At night, with the lighting and the man made waterfall running, the restaurant has a "magical" feel.

It is about 20 minutes walk to the center of the city for multiple banks with ATM machines, malls, supermarkets and other shopping plus restaurants and night life. You can also catch one of the tricycles stationed at the main entrance.

It is by the sea bu there is no beach.
