“Perfect house for family and large groups wanting to stay together in one complex.”
Reviewed 31 December 2017 for a stay in November 2017

The house was lovely, just what we needed. Clean, well equipped and well staffed with lots of information available at request. Trips can be easily organised through the girls who work at the Villa which is easier than using travel agencies in town.
The grounds of the property were well maintained and the pool area was very clean with a crystal clear salt water pool.
This property would be top of my list to stay again if available.
Many thanks Vincent and Staff

“A home away from home...”
Reviewed 7 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

If your travelling with a large group who likes to do things yourselves, this villa is right for you. It has everything a western house contains and more, sure, its not a 5-7 star hotel but it certainly has its perks. Firstly, its secured, its walled and gated, and I can see a few cctv cameras. The rooms are airconditioned, you can go from normal temperature to arctic cool, this should give you the right environment for a restfull night to prep for your days adventure. The kitchen has all the besic necessities, a fridge, a cooktop, a microwave and everything else that works. The place has a caretaker who are just fab, they are very helpfull, very accommodating and just overall wonderfull. The compund has a volleyball court which also doubles as a badmenton court as well as a pool table if you guys are looking for some team sports action. The villa is located in what looks like a small town centre, it contains a fresh produce market, and the beautiful white sandy beaches of panglao is not too far away as well. The water supply is good, the shower has hot and cold, but not sure why you need the hot bit in the philippines. Everything you need for a comfortable stay is present, the only thing i had with the place is that its a bit dated, it has plenty of potential, but nothing that a good interior designer cant fix. Would definetly book it again if im going on holiday with a group... and oh yeah, hi speed internet acces was a bonus, though not conducive for group bonding but certainly keeps you updated.

“Great Villa & Great Time!”

The villa was great! My elderly American mom, my Filipina wife and her family had a great time along with myself. The villa was safe and quiet and very comfortable with a nice kitchen which we used to cook breakfast and dinner every night. The villa had a nice volleyball court along with a pool table which my wife's family loved! The manager of the villa, Jedy and her husband were very nice. They arranged transportation when needed which was every day. Last thing like to add, booking of the villa was easy. Had made a mistake when I booked it and Vincent, the owner of the villa corrected the mistake with penalties or hassle. Matter of fact, Vincent and I were corresponding back and forth quite a bit several weeks before our arrival date with some changes that were made and he was very accommodating. Highly recommend the villa. Mike Zavislak Chicago - USA

“Amazing Getaway”
Reviewed 28 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

people found this review helpful

***AMAZING GETAWAY*** I have travelled to countries all over Europe, Asia and in the United States but not once did I ever write a review, my wife usually does. So why now?.....Well, There are some things money cannot buy that is the genuine hospitality our family experienced during our one week stay at this gorgeous villa and as a token of my gratitude I would like to extend my thanks to Vincent White (the owner), Jedy (property manager) and Rizal, Rosy and Tercy (Chef) “To call them cook would be an insult and an understatement for they have prepared an incredible feast for us”. From the moment I made an inquiry about this Villa, Vincent was very patient and immediately answered all of my questions and concerns. One of my concerns was security, comfort and cleanliness of the property for my family. The picture does not do justice, it is usually the other way around, and this place was immaculately kept clean with modern appliances and furniture (added bonus Excellent Wi-fi). Special thanks to Ms. Jeddy who has been very accommodating at our every call and needs for such a large group of 18 people. I have so many great things to say about the staff and this place but I will wrap it up before I put everyone to sleep. I highly recommend this place to a small or big family looking to spend an intimate getaway in this beautiful paradise called Panglao, Bohol and all the LUXURY, SECURITY and COMFORT in Panglao Villa! Price is very reasonable, 10 mins walk to the closest beach and less than 10 mins drive from the famous Alona Beach. Next time we come back, we will definitely stay here again without a doubt rather than staying at an overpriced 5 star hotel near Alona Beach. ***Thanks again Vincent and Jedy for an unforgettable getaway, no words can express how much we appreciate your hospitality and we will see you again next year!***

“Great Panglao vacation!”
Reviewed 13 March 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Last week, we returned from a wonderful getaway to Panglao Island and a relaxing, comfortable, and enjoyable stay at Panglao Villa. From the moment we landed on the Island, the service we received from the owner and staff at Panglao villa went above and beyond. The villa was booked by another reservation our 1st night on the island, but Vincent, upon hearing that our hotel for that 1st night did not provide airport transportation, took it upon himself to pick us up and bring us to our hotel. The next day we were picked up again, and brought to the villa. The house itself was comfortable, incredibly spacious, and wonderfully tranquil. Our two-year-old loved the swings and volleyball court (i.e. a sand pit to play with his toy trucks), and we all enjoyed the privacy of having the property to ourselves, as well as the location (a quick trike ride to the beach, but not far from the local church, school, and shops). Our experience on Panglao would have been drastically different had we opted to stay at a beachside resort, and I'm so happy about the choice that we made. Jeddy was phenomenal at answering all of our questions, and any small issues that did arise (lack of hand towels and soap) were attended to immediately. Jeddy was also able to provide us with an absolutely wonderful housekeeper, Rosie, who kept the villa tidy, made us an absolutely delicious dinner one evening, found us things that the market we weren't able to locate (such as coffee), and, best of all, was gladly willing to play with/watch our toddler on a few occasions, so that my husband and I could have a romantic dinner on the beach one evening, and a chance to snorkel Balicasag another day. Our family had a memorable, relaxing, and fun week on Panglao, and that was largely due to our choice to stay at Panglao Villa and the wonderful people we had the chance to meet there! Should our travels take us to the Philippines again, we would jump at the opportunity to return to Panglao Villa.

those 3 lettres really describe everything about this place! Located in a little village away from the tourist spots and there again only 15 min drive by trike (100 pesos) to beautiful Alona Beach. The villa is beautiful and peaceful located in what seems to be a little forest of mainly coconut palm trees. Just look at the pictures on www.panglaovilla.com, there it says it all and its exactly like its written there. Vincent is a great and friendly guy and very helpful and answers all questions very fast. Jedi the housekeeper and her husband are quickly there when needed. We experienced some power blackouts at the beginning of our stay as a aftermath of the disastrous earthquake that hit the island on october 15th, 2013 but it only lasted between 30 min - 2 hours. Let's face it, on vacation you can easily be without tv or internet for a couple of hours! Also the damages on some of some very old buildings on the island was devastating, Panglao Villa did withstand this 7.2 magnitude without a scratch! In the village itself you can get almost everything for your daily needs from the many sari sari stores or the local market where you can buy vegetables, fresh fish from the day, meet, chicken all fresh! All in all I can only highly recommend this place. Thanks Vincent for letting us stay there, thank you Jedi and husband for all the help you assisted us with. We had a great stay, we only met very friendly people and if we ever have the chance to come to this island again, Panglao Villa will be the only choice!

“Wonderful Holiday Home for families and groups”
Reviewed 1 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013
2
people found this review helpful

Everything positive has been said by previous reviews, but I can honestly say that I have never felt safer or more comfortable in the Philippines than staying here!
I contacted the owner, Vincent after my initial enquiry because the dates we wanted were not available. He explained that this was because of some extension work, but that he would make the Villa available on part of our stay at a discounted rate. Due to no fault of the owner, the booking system (holiday rentals) double discounted the booking and he contacted me to inform me of the error. In all honesty I was disappointed and didn't react brilliantly. Vincent, however was an absolute gentleman and we resolved the difference fairly quickly.
Our pick up at the ferry terminal was First Class, unlike a so called high class hotel in Cebu, we were met with a suitable sized vehicle for a party of 6 plus luggage, and the transfer was included in the rental! A real bonus.
Jedy advised us to pick up a few items on the way to the Villa and this is where experience can advise future clients to plan what they would like to eat, request that you stop by the local mall/shops to pick up some groceries (unless you eat out) we were poorly organised in that respect and wasted a little too much time looking for basics like salt, seasoning etc.. Only important if you want to prepare your own food in this very well equipped kitchen!

Jedy and husband Rizal, are as previously mentioned, very helpful, likeable and trustworthy people and I regret that we didn't have more time to get to know them better. We had a family member with a 4x4 car but the advice that Jedy gives is spot on!

The Villa itself is to a high Western standard with Air Con in all rooms except bathroom and kitchen. The aircon in the main bedroom is not that loud really, it just happens to be right above the headboard but we found the best way was to cool the room before bed, leave the time for about an hour and let it go off, or else, just use the fan, after all you need to adjust to the tropical heat in any case.
The badminton, volleyball and pool facilities were enjoyed by all... make sure to put on deet based mosquito repellent if playing around sunset and beyond, otherwise if you are like me or my youngest son you will be bitten.
Internet, wifi and large flat screen TV are added bonuses but not keen on most of the tv channels to be honest.
The village and surrounding area is very safe, friendly and you do not feel pressurised at all. My eldest son was enjoying the local kids jumping off the pier to cool down and asked to join in. The kids were great and realising they were being videoed, they all put on a bit of a show and made him feel very welcome to be part of the group. My wife who was very reluctant at first to leave the Villa was getting up and going to the local Sari store for essentials, like eggs, milk etc. on the back of a motorcycle for a very small cost (10 pesos). When we got back to Cebu (today) she said she wants to go back.

Travelling from Cebu was the only stressful part of the experience and I was not impressed by the WEESAM Express ferry service. The staff were not very friendly and tried to charge full for kids and senior despite asking for their ages. On the return, we got to the terminal to find they had cancelled the sailing but they offered a refund. As the ticket was a round trip promo we only got back half which left us out of pocket because we had to find around 1000 pesos (13/14GBP) extra for single tickets with another company (2Go)
The Villa is perfectly placed for travel to Alona or Doljo beach. Worth checking which way the wind is blowing before deciding on the right one to swim and enjoy.
Final word on the Vila, it was so nice to see a little family background in photos on one of the walls. It is clearly a place that was built with family comfort and enjoyment in mind, reinforced with the family connections Vincent has in the village.
Great trip, great value and WILL be back!!!
