Lovely place with a wonderful view of the ocean. Excellent rooms (we had a Deluxe Seaview), friendly and helpful staff. Transfer to/from Cebu City ran safely and with clockwork precision. Just a few points that prevents me from giving the highest rating: * A fair bit of traffic noise, as the place is overlooking the main highway. Not bothersome inside...

I have plans for checking out the place so I called to inquire . So much if expectations that the front desk will be as courteous as expected yet was totally opposite. She cuts me off every time I asked. I wasn't even done with my queries she hurriedly hung up . Like wow !

I have been here many times with my wife and friends. Food is great!. Rooms are quiet and clean. Nice swimmingpool. Owners Inge and Alex are very nice people. The staff is also great. Close at tinko beach and only 45 min from the whalesharks. We will come again for sure. Alex and Inge: keep up the good work.

Reviewed 10 February 2016

The place is located on a hilltop overlooking Bohol Sea and with clear views of Siquijor, Panglao and Bohol Islands. The reception office is located at the back and one has to walk some distance (carrying your bags as there is no one to ask for help except for the lone guard). Food service in the restaurant is so slow.

The hotel was nice, nice view, nice pool and nice rooms. However, the restaurant in the area is the only one, so no choice. The lack of competition is seen in the quality of the food and overpriced meal. The service is also slow....groups that arrived 15m after us were served first. We had to wait 1hr to get our...

always spend a night here when in Cebu. Its relaxing and quiet and the pool is warm and clean. Room price is reasonable. The food is very good and priced well. The view is to die for. Dalaguete Market is a ten minute exiting ride in a tricycle from the bottom of the driveway. You wont be disappointed with Bodo's.
