You can take a boat ride from Panglao to Oslob if you want to see the whale shark.
On a tight budget?
In Panglao there are several motorbike rentals that provide free delivery to all resorts within the island. You just inform the reception in the place where you're at and they will take care of it. Prices start at 500 pesos and you just need to fill up the tank when you are done. FYI If you are staying at Alona Beach, there are gas stations nearby.
Located at Dao, Dauis, Panglao Island, Bohol, Philippines, Bohol Bee Farm is a resort and a restaurant. They also have a store for those who are into organic stuff. This is also one of the tourist destinations when you go on a tour in Bohol or Panglao Island. You should try the organic ice cream when you get the chance to visit.
The restaurant allows you to feast on organic delicacies and fresh flower salads.
Here is just some of what you can buy in their shop.
A room at Bohol Bee Farm
Situated in Brgy. Buenos Aires, Carmen, Bohol, Chocolate Hills Adventure Park (CHAP) is Bohol's latest eco-tourism adventure park. It is an hour and 15 minutes drive from Tagbilaran City. CHAP offers over 20 thrilling adventure activities for adults and children.
Location wise, this hotel is perfect, near the beach and just a few
steps away to the main road. The staff is friendly and provides you with
what you want. The WiFi is stable, and it even reaches the rooms!
I spent 6 nights at Villa Almedilla with my friend. It was not easy to
find it, as it locates far from the main road, deep in an ally. The
advantage is that, we were free from the noisy and crowds on Alona
beach. And there is a short cut to the beach through Bohol Divers
Resort, only 2-3 minutes,...
It was nice Hotel, average room, good A/C, the beach is accessible 2-3
minutes walk, the hotel staff is attentive and helpful in our needs.
Most importantly clean and C.R.

Keep up the cleanliness!
We spend there 4 amazing days. Hotel is 3 minites walk from the beach,
in a very quiet and safe area. There's a small shop nereby. Personnel is
very-very helpful! They told us where to go and what can we do, helped
with tricicle upon arrival, lent adopter for plugs. Very clean place,
perfect combination of price/value, we didn't expect...
Small, but clean rooms and no balcony.
Close to the beach but away from the noise. You just pass through a gate and another resort and you are on ther beach.
Our aircon didn´t work, so the offered us another room
Cheap and VERY clean place. Seriously, I've seen operation tables in
western hospitals, that looked dirtier than this place.
Staff is helpful, smiling and friendly. Owners likewise. They gave me a
cheap ride to town and helped me find a dentist, when I got tooth

Great little spot approx 40 second walk to the beach. Although its
located off the beach behind another resort it is with v short walking
distances to all local attractions. The room is good value for the area
and with that u get very clean spacious rooms with top notch service. Do
Batangas City, Philippines
We stayed here for 5 days. It is a budget friendly place for those
people who had limited budget. Tha place is just 2minutes walk to the
beach, we just passed the bohol divers resort going to the beach. The
place is also quiet and nature lover for those who wants to be far from
noise of bars. The staff...
Tarlac, Tarlac, Philippines
The first hotel we checked in at Bohol was at Panglao Island, the view
was super beautiful but we asked for our tour specialist Kuya Dodong to
transfer us to the heart of Bohol the next day, ALONA Beach (because our
group is somewhat party animals).. Kuya Dodong transferred us at Villa
Almedilla. It's not beach front but just a...
After checking a few nearby budget options, and also the nearby Bohol
Beach divers we finally decided on Villa Almedilla after concluding that
the cleanliness in comparison to the price was outstanding (even in

most hotels in P.I. no proper curtains to black out the room in the
morning. It should be a must, especially in a country where it's
already daylite at 5:30 am.
Very recommedable Place to stay
Location, staff und cleanliness
March 8, 2015
stayed at villa almedilla with my friend and we had a very pleasant
stay. The stuff was incredibly nice and helpful. The rooms were very
clean and the location was also great. You seriously just walk less than
1 min to Alona beach! I can only recommend this hotel!
Good basic accomodation
Friendly , helpful staff, nice clean room, five minute walk to beach
stayed at Villa Almedilla for four nights in March and it was adequate
for our needs,unfortunately our tand trike driver from Tagbilaran port
had big problems finding the villa which is tucked away down a narrow
dirt track. We finally arrived there after an hour and a half of
searching, the room was spotlessly clean and big enough, and the
bathroom was large (no bath tub)hot water was always available until we
had a brownout. the only slight negative for me , was that the bed was
very hard, but we managed to sleep ok though maybe others wont.The villa
is situated less than five minutes to the beach, using a short cut via
Bohol Divers Club opposite. Within five or ten minutes walk, there are
many restaurants and even more if you fancy walking a little further
,the staff are friendly and helpful, and I would say for what we paid it
was reasonable value for money. if you want a fridge and phone etc pay a
bit more and stay elsewhere.

You can easily do better.
Nice staff, pleasant colored building, decent balcony
positive reviews must have come from paid shills or those suffering
delusions. The beds are VERY UNCOMFORTABLE (3 inches of cheap foam over
wooden slats--yah, good luck with that). Oddly, the room had nice
crown moldings, an investment that would have been better focused on the
bedding. "Only 50m from the beach" means walking through an area that
seems as if it has received no attention since the Japanese Imperial
Army laid it to waste in WWII. At night you must walk through the
passage way of a broken down house occupied by squatters, a couple with a
crying infant and the guy always drinking beer and trying to get me to
have a drink with him as he burned cook fires that left the already
apocalyptic environment in a pall of nasty smoke. Internet was spotty
at best. And less than 50 ft away, closer to the beach, I got a room
with breakfast included and a nicer bed for the same price. Good luck,
make your day. I also found the beach overrated, clogged with boats and
poor for swimming, alot of seaweed beds. Mostly for divers who haul
out in the morning. And every morning some local imbecile had a trash
fire going to stink the area out. Oh, how I love the smell of burning
plastic in the morning! Dumaluan beach is much nicer, in my most humble
of opinions. Bigger, wider, no boats, better swimming, fewer people.
Alona is great if you prefer the tourist clog.

The hotel is near the beach, staff are attentive.
Near the beach
hotel is a walk away from the beach, the staff are very attentive and
helpful. You just have to ask the frontdesk for whatever you need like
hot water, mosquito spray, utensils etc. They also offer vans or cars
for tours just ask the frontdesk. The only downside is that the nearest
resto are expensive(along the beach) and the cheaper ones are far.

Very good, peaceful place to stay in a busy resort
Comfortable bed, peaceful, proximity to beach
is a nice quiet place to stay at Alona which is a busy, overcrowded
resort. The rooms are spacious with good wifi and good bathrooms. The
staff are helpful and smiley!!! It is tucked away down a road which is
not very well lit at night so it might be useful to take a small torch.
We stayed 5 nights and did not have any problems at all. There is no
restaurant attached so you have to find your own breakfast. They have a
way through to the beach which takes about 3 minutes. Thoroughly

un très bon second choix
staff, chambres, tranquille
June 26, 2015
hotel, qui ressemble plus à une résidence, est un très bon second choix
quand les hôtels du bord de mer sont pleins ou trop chers. 2 mn à pied
seulement de la plage. Chambre et salle d'eau de bonne taille et bien
équipées. Staff très sympa. Séchoir à linge individuel dans le couloir
extérieur desservant les chambres, très pratique.

깨끗하고 친절한 숙소
깨끗한 룸 친절한 직원 저렴한 가격
동생과의 보홀여행에서 대만족한 숙소입니다
솔직히 여자 두명이라 청결을 제일 신경썼는데
정말 깨끗하고 직원분들도 항상 웃는얼굴로 대해주고 친절하고 방도 큼직하고 욕실도 커서 너무 편하게 지냈어요
벌레도 없고 메인비치 나가는 샛길이 있는데 자물쇠로 잠궈두기때문에 샛길로 다니실거면 카운터에서 열쇠 따로 받으셔야하고요
