“good value, relaxed feel”
Reviewed 7 January 2013

We stayed here for 2 nights after having 1 night at Alona Kew White Beach Resort. I thought this place was great. It was about half the price of Alona Kew but I would say much better value for money.

The hotel is not set right on the beach but it really is just a few minutes walk back from the beach along the small strip of shops – not a big deal at all. Right next door to the hotel are restaurants/bars and mini-mart shops. The check-in staff were friendly and the resort is small and low key. It is a set of chalets/huts set around a nice garden area. The garden area has some nice chairs to relax in and there is free Wi-Fi in this area. There is no restaurant attached to the resort but with so many literally on the doorstep it doesn’t matter.

When we booked (NYE) it was busy – we needed 3 rooms and booked two of the huts and then booked the ‘dormitory’ room too. This dorm is more like a family room than dorm – it was one double bed and 2 singles. I think it cost the same as the other rooms and it was exclusively ours so we weren’t sharing the ‘dorm’ with anyone else. I think it’s a bit misleading to call it a dorm so don’t let this put you off. The room had a small but clean bathroom and also a fridge and safe. The only downside to this room compared to the other huts is that it’s not in the main garden and is right next to the main road which is busy with motorbikes and night-club noise.

I liked the relaxed, friendly vibe here and thought it was good value for money. I would stay here again.

Room Tip: Opt for one of teh 'chalet's rather than the 'dormitory' as this is close to the mai...

I arrived in Alona Beach ready to "take anything" due to the Lonely Planet warnings of overpriced accommodation. I rolled into Paragayo and booked a room.

The receptionists were brilliant - always smiling, always willing to help.

The location is ok - it's defimtisely within the built up areas of Alona Beach (important for me to feel safe as a solo female travelr) however it is opposite Helmuts Place which appears to be a bit seedy and turns up the music as evening progresses. I would have preferred to be closer to the beach (3 min walk), but I'm not sure about the quality in this price range on the beachfront.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back of the resort will be quieter (as far away from reception as possible). Wifi is a...

We stayed at Paragayo resort for three night and we enjoyed our stay at this simple clean and fun resort. The rooms are big with a private bathroom and hot water which was a bit salty however you have to expect that on a small island like Panglao. We went to the beach every night for dinner and it was very close by they advertise three minute walk (more like 5-7) Anyway it a leisurely stroll.

I stayed in Paragayo Resort with my boyfriend and there's not a single complain we can say.
- The resort though a 5-minute walk to the beach is just fine because there are restos, bars, and souvenir shops to see on your way.
- Rooms are clean as well as the comfort room.
- Staff are very friendly and accommodating!
- Ate Fe and Kuya Fred who drove us from the airport and during the day tour were safe drivers and ALWAYS on time!
- Budget-friendly accommodation. The experience was worth more than what we paid for.

Definitely a place worth staying! :)

We all liked Paragayo Resort and enjoyed our stay. The Room was clean and tidy with a good sized bathroom with hot water. Cable TV had a lot of English channels and we even had a room safe. What was best of all was the Price. You just can't beat it for Value.

The resort is not beach front. It is a 10 minute walk to Alona Beach. It is however an inexpensive resort. The rooms are clean. The hotel provides towels and soap. They change the sheets and towels and provide soap daily. Shower is not as strong but it has a heater. Rooms have airconditioning units and ceiling fans. Even if the resort is road-side, the engine sound is not heard inside the rooms. They have a nice garden that serves as buffer between the rooms and the road. the garden has huts which can be good for relaxing or reading. They also provide free wifi access in the communal areas like the reception and garden.
