In my last post, I mentioned we stayed at the Vanilla Sky Resort during our stay in Panglao, Bohol.. It is a charming Italian-style, three-story building that has an assorted choice of accommodations: family, standard, and apartment. I was even told that the owner resides in one of the rooms on the third floor.
The hotel stands 400 meters away from Alona beach, a walkable distance, give or take 10 minutes? We were booked for the twin-size room on the ground floor which is good for 2, but really you could fit an entire family of four inside! The room includes air conditioning, a flat screen cable TV, a small refrigerator, lots of closet space, and a small safe inside the closet for your valuable belongings. The bathroom is also very clean (I’m picky when it comes to bathrooms) and spacious with running hot water. No bathtub for our room, but a lot of shower space. Before you ask, yes, there is free WIFI. The outside amenities include a space for beach volleyball and a swimming pool. Their swimming pool is approximately 60sqm in marble dust with a curved design giving it a unique look. The soft lines and varying depth makes it suitable for both children and adults to jump in and splash around. The restaurant and bar is right beside the pool. You may opt to eat there or have your food delivered to your room. The food is really good, albeit a bit pricey. If you want to save on your food budget, you can head over to the beach where there is always a smorgasbord of food.
Vanilla Sky Resort is a recipient of the 2014 and 2015 Certificate of Excellence from Trip Advisor, with an ‘Excellent’ rating from more than one thousand travelers. I, myself, gave this hotel 5 out of 5. The beautiful scenery, the relaxing environment and even the kind, helpful staff all make the stay worthwhile.
