Review: Bohol Beach Club

Christmas & New Year in the Philippines flying Turkish Airlines Business Class

For the second time after three years, I celebrated Christmas and New Year in the Philippines, together with the Singelresor group. We were a group of 16 although I guess it could have been more. Our program started in Manila, the capital city and after that, we flew to Cebu to explore the oldest city in the country. Then we had four nights in Panglao where we visited the famous Chocolate Hills, the Philippine tarsier, and did the Loboc River Cruise among others and of course enjoyed the white sand beaches of the island. Then, we flew to Boracay, the world's best island for 2016 according to the readers of the CondΓ© Nast Traveler where we celebrated New Year 😍 From there, we flew back to Manila and took the long bus ride to Banaue to visit the 2000 year old Banaue Rice Terraces. Finally, on our last day in Manila, we visited the famous Pagsanjan Falls before taking our evening flight back to Stockholm. Unfortunately, the snow chaos in Istanbul Airport caused us to have an extra three nights in Manila where we were accommodated in the Belmont Hotel Manila. No doubt, it was one of the best Christmas and New Year celebrations I've had lately and would celebrate it here every year if only I could πŸ˜‰

CONCLUSION

This was only my second time to visit Bohol so I do not know much of the hotels in the area but I have to say that the Bohol Beach Club is definitely one of your best choices. The room we had was very nice and had its own porch with views of the garden. Complimentary bottles of water everyday was included and there's also wifi in the room. The turn down service where we got different sweets every night was a very nice gesture. The breakfast buffet had an extensive selection and had almost everything one could ask for. We had our dinner in the main restaurant and everytime, the food tasted great not to mention the price which was very reasonable, and with great live entertainment, it was perfect. The pool was huge and of course, the private beach was just lovely. Lastly, the staff were very friendly and courteous. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay in this hotel and would highly recommend it to everyone looking for a hotel to stay at when in Bohol πŸ‘
