The ultimate rating that this surprising hide-away always receives is well deserved. The tranquility of the place is beyond expectation and the manicured gardens and tropical environment provide a setting that is idyllic for those who just want to chill out. There are a limited number of suites available, which adds to the exclusivity of this destination, although the fellow...

Dear Burke G. Thanks for letting us know how much you enjoyed your stay at Island View. We do put a lot of stress on maintaining the tranquility, that's why the sound of TV soap operas and reality shows is not to be heard here. Interestingly, many guests have expressed their gratitude for not having TV, either in their own...

Island View is a small Eco hotel near Anda on Bohol. It is a quiet and peaceful place . The swimming pool is the best I have experienced at any hotel. It is large enough for sensible exercise but also well enough designed that it is just good for lolling about in . And then there is the beach. White...

Dear David. Thanks for taking the time to let us and others know that you enjoyed your stay at Island View. It is always good to know when guests enjoy what we also like: the large pool, the vast beach, the bird crazy garden, and the absence of techno music.

We stayed here during Japan's Obon Season (mid-August). The hotel was a two-hour drive from Tagbilaran Airport. The weather was perfect. The beach was pristine. The water was a clear cerulean. When the tide fell, we could walk for kilometers over fine, powdery-white sand. In some places, the sand was so soft that our feet sunk. We had a fun...

This small resort is tucked away at the eastern end of Bohol Island in the Visayas. This resort is designed for relaxation, peace and quiet away from the discos and noise at the other end of the Island. The rooms are very comfortable, the swimming pool perfect for relaxing (alone or with a family), the food some of the best...

Hi Terry. It is most gratifying to hear from guests who tell us that what we offer at Island View meets, or surpasses, their expectations. Thanks for your positive feedback.

Stayed with our young baby. Jo-ann and other staff really took care of us and were always friendly and helpful, even looking after him several times so we could have a few minutes for breakfast etc. Food is good, freshly made. Beach is quite small and hard sand mixed with chunks of coral. Swimming tricky at low tide but pool...

We stayed at the hotel for one night but realized that next time we come we'd stay for much longer! A cosy and isolated place by the sea with great view, hospitable owners and delicious cuisine. Strongly recommended for everybody who goes to Anda!

This hotel is a hidden jewel on Bohol's crown in my opinion. We had a fairly long drive after arriving at the airport and since it was the Easter weekend the trip was delayed by the processions for Good Friday. However, these were brilliant to see and our taxi driver which we picked up via security at the airport was...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are a small, cozy, but very comfortable beachfront resort located on the quiet "divers and lovers" side of Bohol Island in the Vasayas region of the Philippines. Bohol is serviced by several daily flights from Manila, the national capital, and fast ferries from Cebu, the regional center. The resort is located in the small and friendly municipality of Anda. It takes a little less than two hours along a good quality picturesque coastal road to reach the resort. We can arrange a car to meet you at the airport or the ferry terminal, or you could come by bus and "tricycle". With a total of only eight rooms - five Deluxe Beachfront Suites and three Standard Rooms - there will never be crowds. All our rooms face the sea and are only a few seconds walk from the beach. Our neighbors are local fishermen and farmers. We have lush green mountains behind us and miles of blue sea in front, as far as the eye can see. Our guests come from all over the world. Most are young couples, or young families, friends travelling together, expatriates relaxing, professionals recharging, and sometimes the occasional Hemingway stays for a while to work on a novel. Many are divers, but all enjoy the sea, or at least being close to it. And many friendships have been made at the Bar. All our guests praise the tranquility and beauty of the resort and its surroundings, and they are unanimous in commenting on the friendliness of the staff. ... more   less
