“Nice, quiet place with a good view and superb food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2014 via mobile

I would come back here for the view and the food. You have a view of the sea, as well as of Panglao and Pamilacan Islands.
The rooms are simple yet tastefully appointed. We got a room with a view of the sea and did not regret it. Hanging out at the pool was much better though and I would much rather have hung out there all day than go to some of the tourist attractions we went to.

The food is exquisite and deserves special mention. We tried everything from sinugba (fish, chicken and I think we got ribs) to the pork humba, fish and chips, pizza and their hamburger (which is awesome).

A pleasant surpise was the fact that they had two wheel transportation for rent. They have a vespa and a few bicycles. I used one of the bikes to see Baclayon and Dauis.

All in all, a good place to stay and I would probably stay here the next time I visit Bohol.

This hotel is still quiet new as it was not there when I visited 2 years ago. For the cheap price that I paid ($41AUD) it was better then I could have hoped for. Upon arrival you are greeted with a welcome drink into the lobby of the beautiful, bright hotel. The modern architecture, accommodating staff and sneak peak of the ocean upon check-in creates a lovely ambience. The room that we got was very spacious with a comfortable bed, nice shower with a big shower head, storage space, tv, aircon, wi-fi and refridgerator (this is was particularly exciting after travelling for weeks without one!). The infinity pool overlooking the ocean was my favourite thing. Watching the sun set whilst lazing around in the pool is just unreal. The staff here were extremely helpful! One lady helped us to purchase our tickets back to Cebu and was really lovely. The restaurant here was also good. Nice selection of food at a reasonable price. We organised a day tour (driver) through the hotel which was alot easier then having to haggle with the multiple guys at the ferry terminal trying to sell tours. Ocean Suites is a great little gem in Bohol and I will certainly back on my next visit!

Room Tip: Try to get an ocean view room rather then one with a street view as you will wake up in the morning...

I heard that the owners tried to give the place a home-like feeling. They accomplished that. It really felt that we were guests at a friend's place. Combined with really good food at the hotel's restaurant, makes me think that I'll be visiting this place every year

Room Tip: The best ones are the corner units facing the ocean. Privacy, balcony, and a view. Can't beat...

We stayed at Bohol ocean suites and were amazed by the view as we checked in. It over looks the entire ocean the colors seem to change through out the day. At night a swim in the pool is refreshing especially after a long day of exploring Bohol. The staff were friendly and food was great. Bread was homemade and coffee was imported. Location was only 10 mins from the airport so that made transportation easy. Coordinating day trips was easy to do with the front desk. We will definitely be back!

My family enjoyed our stay here. Will definitely get your money's worth in staying in this hotel. :)

Highlights:
- free shuttle to/from pier/airport (one way cab ride is 500php)
- price is inclusive of breakfast
- impressive modern design of hotel and rooms, luckily also we stayed in a room that opens up to the pool area
- clean white sheets and comfy beds
- beautiful view of the sea and Panglao island
- good location if you wanna visit chocolate hills, loboc river; property is right next to blood compact

For improvement:
- the water in the infinity pool is dirty - we were told that the filter wasn't working
- floor of the room and toilet are quite sticky when we entered the room
- minimal noises from the construction of basement 1 and 2 but didnt bother us much
- food from restaurant is average.. one specific observation- kinilaw is very bland and could hardly even taste the vinegar; the sweet and sour sauce spread on the sides didnt match the taste of knilaw)

Overall, it was a nice stay and would recommend to friends/family who wants to visit Tagbilaran.

A Gem in Tagbilaran City

+ killer views of Panglao Island and the sea
+ big rooms with ceiling to floor windows
+ intimate infinity pool
+ good food. HUMBA!!!! a must try (I must have ordered this 3 times during my stay)
+ personalized happy hour with the owner
+ Vespa rental
+ round trip airport/seaport transfers
+ breakfast
+ private tours of Bohol can be arranged thru the front desk
+ tagbilaran city center is 4 minutes away/Panglao beaches 15 minutes away

- construction on going, it may bother some
- staff lacks experience but give it time, they just opened. But their warmth and smiles are unbeatable.
- free wifi is intermittent but hey, you are here for a grand time.


Bohol’s newest secret, a small 14 room boutique hotel right beside the blood compact monument in Sitio Bool, Tagbilaran city along the national highway.

I brought my wife and 2 daughters (6 and 4) and we had an excellent 3 night stay. Got a premiere suite that opens directly to the pool area. They loved every minute. Personalized service as the young couple who owned the hotel welcomed us and made us at home. They also invited us to the bar for their nightly happy hour with Sikatunas Brew, a local concoction that was refreshing. Beers under the moonlight at the pool lounge was a highlight

The food selection was adequate with rice meals as well as pasta and other western dishes. You can eat at the coffee shop, the restaurant or by the pool. Breakfast was a choice of filipino fare or toast and bacon. The kids loved the pancakes which were huge and fluffy.

Theres a real Vespa for rent for P700/day (more coming) and its an excellent way to explore Tagbilaran and Panglao . Regular cars/vans are also available by arrangement. The free airport transfers was much appreciated

As its a new hotel, there was a few construction activities that were ongoing but these did not bother us.

This is an excellent choice for couples and families. We will definitely be back here.

Room Tip: as for a premiere room or family room (those face the sea). Book early, theres a long line. Rent th...

For the price point, you simply could not ask for anything more. This place is amazing! The view, the food and the atmosphere are all on point. You feel like you're at a friends house, rather than at a hotel. I've traveled around the Philippines quite a bit and this is one of my favorite places to go.

Room Tip: Get a room with a view. Its well worth it.
