The location was great that it wasn't an issue for our Tour Guide, Kuya Nilo to locate our hotel. He knows very well, Villa Alzhun Tourist Inn. It was located in the city proper where famous Restaurant e.g. Seafood Restaurant etc are located nearby.
The room was quite huge for two persons with private restroom, a television and Aircon. They have a friendly staffs and a very accommodating owner. We were so lucky that our room was located at the second floor and we were only the guest for two nights and three days. Oh yeah!!!
For a reasonable stay and tight budget for couples like us, you might one to consider this place 😍
I stayed in Alzhun for about 5 days in May 2016. The place is peaceful and quiet. I loved sitting by the pool having my breakfast while looking at the sea. This is my highlight of my stay. Otherwise, it can be noisy as the place holds weddings. One morning I couldn't take my time enjoying the peace as the staff were busy preparing for a 9am wedding. And also nothing spectacular about breakfast, it was always rice & egg and 1 other little thing. Not much choices. If you were a western person wanting to have cereals & milk, just forget about it. Be prepared to eat rice every morning. I tried not to mind being a Filipino but having lived in the UK for over 10yrs, sometimes you miss other food. Room is also basic and a little run down. Water pressure is weak so shower didn't work. Bucket shower did fine with me. Internet connection was ok. This place would have been fantastic if well maintained. I never tried to order food here...I always ate out so not really sure what to make of their food. You have to look for staff as they're not always visible. And also swimming pool looked good but didn't seem clean enough so never swam there. Otherwise, staying here is good value for the money and should be ok if you're not fussy.
Villa Alzhun may not be located in the heart of the City, but it is still strategically located. Alzhun offers a great sunset view to its in house guests and diners. The pool is big. The function room is well maintained and lighted and most importantly no middle obstruction. Their food is really great! My favorite is their lumpia and Sinigang. I recommend the place to budget travellers, to foodie, heritage lovers and those who love staring at the sunrise and sunset. The place is also good for small training. The staff are very kind and accommodating. Kudos to all staff, especially to Miss Noemi Bomdiano!👏👏👏
We had our wedding booked at Villa Alzhun as early as December 29,2015 for February 20,2016 and paid the reservation fee. We spoke to this lady claiming the owner of the place and offered us a 20% discount for our room accommodation since we were booking 180 heads for the wedding and reserved 6 rooms for our guests. She said the six rooms can hold 36-38 persons. I made a follow-up one week before the wedding to confirm the negotiation we had when we first went there and the supervisor(man) said that those were correct and very much applicable for the upcoming event. I paid about 50% of the package on that visit.
February 18, while I was holding a class, I received a call from the supervisor(man) asking me about the number of room guests and I said its 36-38 as what we have agreed with the lady owner and he shockingly stated that they could not accommodate my reservation because it's too many and they have 45 guest who just made a booking the same day for February 20 and the rooms we reserved will be used for the 45 guests they have. I was very upset when I heard the statement. Aren't we considered guests as well? We even made the reservation at most 2 months ahead!
I went there and spoke to this supervisor who even offered for us to transfer our room guests to another place because the 45 persons are their regular customers and they'll lose 1 night charge if they continue with our agreement. Aren't we paying for one night,too?!
I spent the whole afternoon driving from one hotel to another inquiring if they can accommodate my guests.
IT'S THE WORST CUSTOMER EXPERIENCE I EVER HAD.
I AM VERY DISAPPOINTED!
A once in a lifetime experience. Bohol is one of the most visited places in the Philippines. So far, I am satisfied with Villa Alzhun. The place is calm and peaceful. The service is great. Great customer service, great view, great food. If given the chance to travel in Bohol for the second time, I would love to stay in Villa Alzhun. Package tour is nice, I mean how we followed the itinerary. Kuya Danny, our tour guide and driver for the whole time is very friendly. I just want to point out something which the management can improve on. I hate the door knob. It's so hard for me and my better half to go into the room. It will take us 5 minutes just to open the door.
