Resort Review: Bohol Beach Club in Panglao Island

After visiting the beautiful town of Anda in Bohol along with PHILTOA Bohol Famtour participants, we proceeded back to Panglao Island to spend overnight at the beautiful Bohol Beach Club (more info). Conveniently located in in the northern side of Alona Beach in Panglao Island, Bohol Beach Club Resort reopened in December 2013 after 9 months of renovation.

It was already dark when we arrived at the resort but the scenic beauty of the beach still overwhelmed me. The resort is known for having a beautiful beach front and I couldn’t agree more. It was my second time staying at the resort but my first was in its older property now owned and operated by South Palm Beach Resort.

The Bohol Beach Club was considered as the first best in class resort in Panglao Island which opened on May 8, 1984. The resort underwent a 9-month renovation and opened again opened its doors to the public in December 2013.


The resort covers more than 11 hectares having 88 beachfront guestrooms. I stayed at one of the standard rooms near the pool and few steps away from the main restaurant. It faces the beach with two bedrooms and a beautiful veranda.

I must admit, all the staff of this resort are super friendly and are on the job. It is from one of the staff that I came to know about their standard rooms, executive suites, premier suites, family suites, and superior cottages. No doubt, they have kept all these spacious rooms quite spick and span. To entertain the visitors, they have equipped the rooms with sized Flat Screen TV above a long table and a mini fridge.

When you go somewhere with your family or friends, you are always worried about the security. So was I. However, the manager informed us that they provide 24 hours reception and security service. It was quite relaxing specially when you know that you are in good hands. The swimming pool and the large tennis court was also quite an attraction. There is also an indoor games room where you can spend your idle time. Too bad we just stayed overnight at the resort and we didnt get the chance to tryout their amenities. I also appreciate their fast, reliable and free Wi-Fi in each room and in public areas including the restaurant and lobby.


Food and service of Bohol Beach Club

Food is the most fascinating part of a hotel or resort. So it was time to check that out. We enjoyed the mini cocktail party they hosted on our first night and of course the buffet breakfast they served before we left the resort.

The waiters served us the food with courtesy. Did I mention a single line regarding their service? If not, I must say that it was something more than satisfactory. They served us every item with great ease along with a charming smile on their faces.

Overall experience at Bohol Beach Club

Undoubtedly, Bohol Beach Club (check rates) is one of the finest resorts in Panglao Island. It is the packet of entertainment where one can enjoy a lot of activities. The traditional and contemporary western foods of the resort were mouth-watering.
