We are very grateful for their hospitality and pleasure to be friends with them. Not only the tranquil and relaxing surroundings but also all the staff make it the most attractive resort in...

I can highly recommend this place - it is beautiful. The location is very good and peaceful. The deluxe room is spacious and nicely equipped. During low tide it is possible to walk along the beach to the little town Anda. The place is not at all crowded with tourists, which also means that we got to experience the real...

The resort is absolutely divine - quiet as we were expecting. Very limited number of rooms, directly on the beach. The view is beautiful and so relaxing. Rooms are simple but spacious, decorated with taste. Place is absolutely clean. The staff is charming and Jo-Ann will do anything to help you if anything needed. The open air restaurant is great...

Dear Brian, Your feedback is valuable and was much appreciated. Thanks for pointing out that Island View is "quiet and relaxing" and for your positive feedback on the rooms, the pool, the beach and the friendly staff.

This place is on the edge of a quiet, natural beach. It's a little basic; no tv, no fancy shampoo in the bathroom, simple food etc. But it's wonderful! The staff are incredibly friendly, the food and drinks are very reasonable (breakfast over three days, most of our lunches, dinners and a lot of cocktails was around £100). The rooms...

Hi Nat, Thanks for taking the time to write a review of your time at Island View Beachfront Resort. As you might have guessed, having no TVs in the rooms is a rather deliberate and considered policy: there is nothing more likely to ruin a peaceful holiday than the din of multiple soap operas and all night cartoons vibrating through...

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.

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...

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
