We have had a wonderful time in one of the apartments. It is a quiet location yet only a short walk to the beach. The staff were both courteous and friendly. The apartment was well furnished and equipped. We will be back and can recommend it to other travellers. Thank you Olivia for a great vacation...

Nice in the pictures.... Enticing good words from their website.... Partnered with reputable hotel search sites..... Then, you're fooled and you give your money for a trash! First, they claim that this hotel is only 5 minutes or less by walk to the beach, NO IT'S NOT!!!!!!! It's more than 20 minutes in a normal pace. Second, they boast of... More

We stayed in one of the new executive 2 bedroom apartments for 5 days, it was home from home luxury, brand new and superbly furnished. It's not on a beach but only two minutes away from Alona beach by car or motorbike which we rented nearby. Very friendly staff and in a secure gated community.

As an American, and having lived in the Philippines for a few years, I have an idea of what to expect. The stay at the Olivia 'Resort' lasted one night and we couldn't leave soon enough. It is not at all what it says it is. It is a very long walk to the beach. Boasting to be 'less than... More

I stayed in one of the apartments on the complex for 1 month, arriving just in time to see the new fully built pool and bar area.

I just spent a month in one of the bungalows. Before we moved in, the website said there would be satellite tv called Dream and free natural gas for cooking. It turns out all their Dream hookups were not official and therefore unfunctional for the whole time we were there and are still not functioning. We also had to pay... More
