“(Not so) Cheap alternative to the expensive beach front”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 October 2013

Well, at 45 $ per room, it is not exactly cheap... but in Alona, there are not many places that offer good quality bed, a good sized bathroom and a small swimming pool.

The balcony and free coffee facility is a bonus.

Of course, the beach is "only" 7 minutes away, but do not forget to bring a torch, or you may well end up in a poodle or a pigstie !

Not sure if I would go back, if I found somethinb beach front for a slightly higher price...

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 September 2013

I sellectecd this hotel based on some people's recommendation on some website. I tried it and found it really worth the money paid for.

In fact this hotel has two sections: section one located in front of alona beach, but with much higher room rate. section two located behind, near by a main road(walking to alona beach through section one take about 5-7 min). Due to the location, the room rate on section two become very attractive!

After visiting alona beach, I realize the beach is really small--- from one side to another side only about 800-900 m long or so. so you can take short time(one hour?) go through all the bars,shops along the alona beach. August is low season. I saw noboday swiming, playing in the sea in front of alona beach during my 3 day's stay. People usally join a group going outside for island hopping/snocking/diving. Therefore, staying in a beach front hotel becoming waste of money. You can stay a hotel behind, just walk 5 min, then you can sitting in a beachside bar/restaurant enjoying the dringking/meal with great sea view!

Back to this hotel facility, the room is with big space, very clean. Hotel environment is very quiet any time so you can have a good sleep any time. For me, sitting in the balcony, have a cup of coffee under the sunshine, seeing the quiet yard/pool view is a great enjoyment. All the facility(in and out room ) are in good condition. For eating, just a few steps out of the hotel , you can find some restaurants nearby roadside with much better price(comparing with those ones along on beach side). Swimming pool is small but the water is really clean. So you have nothing to complain about this hotel !

Those days I also visited many other hotels around alona beach area and found this one is really the best choice! I want to back with friends again.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 September 2013

We stayed there for 9 nights last august and enjoyed it very much. Helpful staff, nice, big rooms, comfy bed, clean, balcony with small table and chairs so we could eat our breakfast outside every morning. Mineral water and coffee facility free of charge.
It's only a 5 minutes walk to the beach, away from the music and noise if you want to sleep early.
Also the city center is nearby, and Da da's laundry service (cheap).
We had a room with fan only, so we did not have aircon AND tv, because it is split!
Nice, small swimming pool, but water is cold due to the waterfall. The time we were there they had some problems with the internet connection.
We surely will go back there again next time.

Good value for money, tasty breakfast, helpful and friendly staff, clean rooms and toilets, not far from beach although I'd prefer to stay in the main hotel which is located right on the beach, and many other good things about it.

The room that we stayed is very new, the bed was huge and comfy, the bathroom was also clean, it has a split type aircon that was very powerful and an lcd tv. Very relaxed inside our room. However the place is not that near on the beach, walking is uncomfortable specially at night. There's not too much entertainment in the area. And there;s no free breakfast. The pool was cute but very small and has no privacy.

great value for alona beach. A short walk to beach but even shorter walk to great bbq. Many hotels directly on alona beach. Last time we stayed on the beach and walked up every day to the town center for local meals. This time stayed at the annex for better savings and we are only 50 steps to nsty & henry bbq, absolutely delicious. Will be back. Not large rooms but very nice balcony. Great aircon & fan. Nice pool, bar and restaurant.

We stayed in Lost Horizon Annex for 2 nights. Initially, I was trying to get rooms in the main resort, but there weren't any rooms available, that's why I ended up booking the annex instead. They reply quickly to email inquiries, so booking them was very easy. When we arrived at the hotel our room was already prepared. Wifi's signal is strong but the connection is quite slow. The linens and towels were clean, and still quite new. The rooms are not that spacious compared to other hotels, but good enough, since we only stayed in our rooms during night time. We had a veranda that was overlooking the pool area. Hotel staff were all courteous and helpful. Overall, our stay in this hotel was ok, nothing extraordinary about it. If I would be returning to Panglao Bohol, I would like to try other hotels, but wouldn't mind staying here again.
