Resort in Panglao, Bohol: Paragayo Resort

My boyfriend and I stayed in Paragayo for 2 days last November. The hotel is a sprawling Bali-style lodging. It has open areas for garden which adds to its relaxing atmosphere. We rented a standard aircon room good for two via online reservation. It costs P1300 a night.
The CR was clean. They provided soap, shampoo and toothpaste. They also have hot water. Towels are changed daily. Each room has its own balcony facing the gardens. We stayed at the back portion of the resort  o it was very peaceful. The room also have TV and the bed is comfortable enough.  It was also spacious enough. They also have security vaults for storing your valuables. They clean the room daily even without you requesting them. They also have free WiFi services. Just ask them the password.
Paragayo is not beach front. It is around 3-5 minute walk from Panglao Beach which I think is okay because you get to see beyond the beach. The place looks secured enough because it's along the highway. They also provide one of the cheapest countryside tour. Just P1000-P1500 which is cheaper when you compared with other tour packages. They also have airport shuttle services which is around P500. This the standard price anyway. You need to hire a shutle because Paragayo and even Panglao is about an hour away from Tagbilaran airport.
One thing that I didn't like is that the water from their taps are a bit salty. But what I noticed is that salty water makes your skin smooth. They also do not provide free drinking water because I think drinking water in Panglao is expensive. Even restos do not provide free water.
By the way, they do not have restaurants. Just a bar where you can buy some drinks. It's not a problem though since there are a lot of restaurants around the area. Staff is quite okay. They will accommodate your requests but they don't smile a lot.
In conclusion, if you want a relaxing stay in Panglao Beach,  Bohol without spending too much, try this place and enjoy!
