First of all, the bar is nice and serves some ok cocktails and good Aussie burgers. However, on this evening the owner walked around calling people all sorts of rude names and making offending gestures, including to me. He then sat next next to my girlfriend and gave her some incoherent babble. As he was the owner, no one bothered... More

Great little bar with reasonably priced beer and pub grub from the stall connected. Frequented by some local expats the bar had a friendly vibe and was a great place for a beer... or 5. There was a singer there some nights who was really good. We found ourselves there several times over a few days. The only thing that... More

Excellent food, amazing atmosphere and the best service ever. Will definitely come back here again. Highly recommend for a stay at the resort and for the funniest night out. Location is perfect, not to crowded and still at the center of Alona beach.

Stayed here in January 2016 for 4 nights. Really enjoyed the place, no airs and graces but real good value for money. Live music at the bar was awesome from a solo guitarist, singer....food very good also. Owner very genuine guy, we left luggage at another hotel, mentioned this to him and he immediately took us to pick the stuff... More

I have been here a few times. The food is made next door and is very good. The owner is almost always there and it has a large following of local expats. It's nice to sit and chat on the beach in a friendly environment. The owner is a nice guy and seems to blend in well with his customers.... More

This Bar/ Hotel/ accomodation is right on the beach. Great atmosphere and best price drinks on Alona Beach. I stayed there for 14 nights and can't wait to go back next April. The people there treat you like a long lost friend.

I haven't stayed at the hotel so can't comment it. Though, I've stayed at the bar several nights with my friend. It is a very good place. If you want to have a quiet discussion with your friend, you can sit down on the tables but if you want to meet new people and talk to the waiters, just sit... More

Do you want to meet crazy, funny people you'll remember for the rest of your life? Do you want to see the sun rise in the morning before you go to bed? Birdwatchers is one of those magic spots you have to discover during your life. Magic staff/owner. Don't forget to ring the bell.... :)

A great spot on Alona Beach. We stumbled across this place on our first day and earmarked it because it is famed for its Aussie burgers. We visited for the lunch the next day: Panglao Birdwatchers is the hotel and you pay for your drinks at the bar (part of the hotel); the food is cooked on the big BBQ... More

“Avoid Room 1 it is the noisiest. Room 4 looks like it might be noisy but it isn't, I stayed in it for months, slept like the dead and bonus is it is the cheapest room. 10 steps to the bar, 20 steps to the beach.”
