Review: Amorita Resort in Panglao Island

Bohol is a lovely island in the Philippines. So many interesting sites to visit and explore. The beach alone is a great spot to unwind. Where to stay is not really a problem because there are numerous hotels and lodge around the area. But of course it all depends to your budget and preferences.

Room at Amorita Resort

When we visited Bohol, we decided to stay in Amorita Resort at Panglao Island. I tell you, it is such a marvellous hotel. Let me start a short tour inside our Deluxe Room. It's size is big enough for two people. They have complimentary drinks and delicious cookies available on the table inside the room. This is different from the welcome drink that we had when we arrived. Although, the television is a bit small and far from the bed, it's okay. We didn't go there to watch television anyway. It has a small veranda where you have a great view of the sea. 



Safety Deposit Box and Other Essentials

Whenever I look for hotel, I always check if there's a safety deposit box inside the closet. And yes Amorita Resort have it. All the toiletries and other essentials are also provided. Laundry and other services are available upon request. 





Bed

This room is classified as double. But with the two double beds, I am sure four people can fit here. Don't you think? 

I'm so meticulous when it comes to linens. I just had this bad experience in a hotel before which ended up with rashes all over my arms and legs. I hardly believed that it's because of the dirty bed covers and blankets. Not everything that looks clean is really clean. I truly learned my lesson. 

I give Amorita 10/10 for the fresh linens. I am 100% sure that everything in there are clean. Every pillow smells good. You can even request for change of bedding everyday. 



Infinity Pool

One of the reasons why we decided to stay in Amorita Resort is their nice size signature infinity pool. Since the resort is located on the highest part of the Panglao Island, the view is just stunning from the infinity pool. The soft waterproof beds are great for sunbathing too.

You can stay in the pool and watch the sunset which we did. And it's really breathtaking. 

Check out the following pictures for you to see the view that I'm talking about.

Beach

The residents of Amorita Resort have access to the beautiful Alona beach. From there, you also gain access to different sports activities offered by local people of Panglao. The water is clean and pretty much warm to swim and relax.

Food

Saffron Restaurant and Bar inside the Amorita Resort served amazingly delicious local and Filipino dishes. For lunch and dinner, every dish is cook as you order. With that you are sure that you are eating fresh foods and not left-overs. 

The restaurant is located adjacent to the infinity pool, so you have the same nice view as if you are in the pool. They also have chairs and tables under the trees where you can have your meal.

I give 10/10 for all the foods we had during our stay and for the service with smile and sincerity. Food price is a bit high but worth it. With that, I give 8/10.

Package

Since we wanted to more than a relaxing day at the beach, we took the package from the hotel. It is called Bohol Tourrific Package. 

What's included in the package and how much does it cost?

It's a 3day and 2 nights accommodation in  a double Deluxe Room with complimentary daily breakfast at the Saffron Restaurant. It also includes round trip airport/seaport transport. We both got one hour in-room relaxation massage which we loved so much. 

The tour around Bohol was very good because we have our own guide, car , driver and we witnessed endless natural beauty of Bohol. We were taken in Chocolate Hills, Baclayon Church, Baclayon Museum, Man-made Forest and Blood Compact Monument. We also had Loboc Rive Cruise and Tarsier Encounter.

All these for Php 20,800 inclusive of Vat and Goverment taxes.  




Our overall stay in Amorita Resort was great and unforgettable. Its' beauty was retained in my mind. I would love to go back in this resort but will try their other package. If it fits your budget, I definitely recommend Amorita Resort. It's the best place in Panglao Island.
