Bohol Accomodation: Paragayo Resort

15 comments
Paragayo Resort is just 3 minute walk from Panglao's famed beach of Alona.  And though it is not a beach front hotel and resort, yet, it is one of the most convenient and well-maintained resort in Panglao.   First, it is convenient because it just along the way and not far from the access roads. It also near the souvenirs shops, internet rentals, restaurants, pubs/bars, coffee cafes and budget eateries around Baranggay Tawala. Just two shops beside it, is a convenient and grocery store that does not sell overprice items. The resort is also near the tourist police office. Second, it is well-maintained because I find its environs clean all the time and well-maintained by its staff. The staffs are friendly too and not hesitant to help you if you need inquiries regarding tours around Bohol or Panglao.

Lounge?
Resort's facade.
Relaxing ambiance.
Paragayo Resort is heavily landscaped garden. But the ornamental plants and coconut trees just adds appeal to its tropical ambiance. I love their thatch nipa style lounging area where you can have peaceful and quiet mornings and breakfast.  It is a good place to hang-out while not liking to watch cable television of your room or spending idle time while you're not yet in an itinerary trip.  There's also a hammock in one of the thatches where you can lay and relax under the breeze of summer.  The resort is also wi-fi zoned area and its free! Just asked the resorts' receptionist password for access.  Their wi-fi signal and connection is strong around the resort especially at the thatch nipa lounges so doing shout updates and internet access is not a problem while staying in Paragayo Resort. A bit of problem is the water in the resort (or in the whole Panglao) because its quite salty and seawater. I do hope they improve this water supply amenity.

The rooms in native and tropical theme style.
Standard rooms good for 4 persons.

I have learned about Paragayo Resort through the collection of card referrals of mom who has been to Bohol last 2009. This resort/hotel was also recommended by our Bohol tour guide as it also offers good prices for accommodation in Panglao Island. It also offers tour services around the island and easily located around Tawala, Panglao Island.

Flowering shrubs and a variety of tropical foliage that makes this retreat a true paradise. Just by walking alone through the resort's breezy corridors and airy verandas is enough to make you feel the holiday ambience .

  1. Though it ain't beach front, lapit lang naman sa Alona. Sounds good to me! Hope I could visit again someday, I'll probably check it out.

  13. @Bing: marami din akong nabasang good reviews sa paragayo... pero surprise yung pag-stay namin dyan kasi hindi talaga kami dapat iistay dyan nung time na yun. Overall, worthy for a Bohol accommodation sya.

    @Anna: Thanks for a good hotel review of the resort.
