Dream Native Resort
Ranked #21 of 50 Hotels in Panglao Island
Reviewed 27 June 2017 via mobile

We went for 8 nights with our kids 6 and 4. We had a fantastic time, the resort is very clean and extremely comfortable. The staff and owners are superb and nothing is too much for them. Jackie (the grounds man) watches over your kids when they are in the pool, leaving you to relax. The room we had had 2 queen size beds, it had everything you needed and was immaculately clean. The only downside was the walls are paper thin and you hear everything in the adjoining room.

The only downside was the breakfast was extremely poor value for money. We made coffee in the room and then went to the bakery (next door to the resort) for breakfast and eat it by the pool.

The dinner in the Italian restaurant was excellent. Good quality food and not overpriced.

For lunch went to the beach or the bee farm most days. The bee farm was the better, try the honey salted ice cream!

Dreams Native Resort does feel like you are stuck in the middle of nowhere, it's great for families with kids but not great for the 18-25 market. However, the staff will order taxis or provide transport to where you need to go.

Stayed: April 2017, travelled with family

We stayed only 2 nights at Dream Native but would have liked to have stayed longer. We were picked up from Tagbilaran Airport and made to feel incredibly welcome from the very first moment. They served us fresh pineapple shakes as free welcome drinks which were absolutely delicious. As the low season was just beginning we were the only guests so had the whole place to ourselves and therefore all the staff waiting on us hand and foot.

The food was delicious and reasonably priced although the fruit shakes were more expensive than you'd see in the UK!

It's a very relaxing environment and the pool and jacuzzi are bliss. They are very passionate about animal welfare and they have dozens of rescue cats in an enclosure. The cats are looking very healthy and happy and you'll always find at least one member of staff tending to them.

Wifi was free and decent. The room had a fridge, kettle and coffee and a couple of bottles of complimentary water provided each day. There's also a safe in the room.

Nearest beaches are the free 'White Beach', Dumaluan Beach (25p) and the all-inclusive Bohol Beach Resort (1000p). They offer a free shuttle to and from each of the beaches.

Quaint little resort, with 10 cottages, in Panglao island! very homely atmosphere, nice clean swimming pool, and smiling host and the team in the property.
Not on the beach, and that's the best part, its really quiet and you can relax endlessly. Offers free airport shuttle if you stay more than 2 nights; also offers free shuttle to nearby white beach, with towels etc!
A bit too quiet in the evenings; so recommended if you can take some cards or board games, in case you have young kids!

Room Tip: Take some board games or cards, in case you find the evenings too quiet!

Loved the time spent there. Really nice huts, very comfortable and very well preserved. Even if you don't stay there, just go and check the excellent Italian food they serve. Plus the owners are really nice people which made our stay even better.

Stayed: April 2016
