Amorita Resort Review

It was in May 2008 when I had the chance to visit Bohol for a 4 days / 3 nights stay. Our trip to Bohol was totally unexpected so we didn’t have much time to plan the whole trip. A week before our trip, I already started looking for an accommodation in Panglao Island and I was quite surprised of their rates – most of which are really quite expensive.

While I was searching the Internet for a nice place to stay in Panglao Island, I stumbled upon this stylish and very elegant resort – Amorita Resort. Amorita, which means “little love” in Spanish is owned by the 28-year old Ria Hernandez-Cauton. The resort is nestled atop a beach sided cliff which offers spectacular and breathtaking views of the sky and Panglao Island’s Alona White Beach. It is quite new since it was built just 2 years ago, I think.

Amorita Resort - Bohol

As of August 2009, the price of each room ranges between P5,600 – P11,200 during lean season but these rates could go up to P8,400 – P15,120 during peak season. And since we cannot afford to get a villa, we decided to avail their Deluxe Room with the following inclusions:

*Please note that these inclusions are based on our May 2008 trip.

  • 4 days / 3 nights Deluxe Room Accommodation
  • Complimentary Breakfast
  • Roundtrip Airport Transfers
  • A choice of – Complimentary use of Kayak and Snorkel Equipment OR One (1) hour full body massage
  • Welcome drink and cold towel upon arrival
  • Vat and Local Government Taxes

As we arrived at Tagbilaran Airport, the driver was already outside waiting for us. He was holding a placard with the Amorita sign on it and as we approached him, he welcomed us, took our things and assisted us towards the van. The resort was just a 30-45 minute drive from the airport and as we reached the resort, we were then brought to the reception area. The staff of the resort welcomed us, handed us our cold towels and welcome drinks then assisted us to our room.

As we walked toward our room and passed by the tropical gardens around the resort, I was completely stunned by the beauty of the place – good location, great landscaping and architecture, nice and clean surroundings, spectacular views and a whole lot more. This resort was truly a good place to relax and enjoy the beauty of nature. To add to these, our stay at Amorita Resort was really way beyond our expectations.

The next time I go back to Bohol, I will still consider staying on this resort, and hopefully by that time I can now afford stay on one of their villas.

Staff

The staff of Amorita Resort in Bohol had been very warm and courteous to us all through out our stay. They had been very attentive and were customer-service oriented. Other than that, their representatives in Manila had also been very friendly and kind to us that they attended to all our queries and assisted us through out our booking and reservation.

    Spark: Oo nga eh, pero sulit naman ang ibabayad ninyo kasi sobrang ganda ng place and sobrang ganda ng service na makukuha ninyo sa mga staff ng resort. 😀

    Father: Really? Nagbago na ang isip ko, the next time na pumunta ako ng Bohol, makikitira na lang din ako sa mga kamag-anak mo. 😛

    Cindy: Makakapunta ka rin dun. 😉

    Thanks FilipinoInfo for the RT. 😀

    Wow! That was really a very nice resort. Unfortunate for me, I was not able to visit it during my Bohol trip. I don’t even get the chance to see the Chocolate Hills 🙁

    Wayne and Icey,

    That was a a beautiful resort! Unfortunately, I didn’t see that when I last went to Bohol back in June of 2007 (me thinks lol).

    What I like best was snorkeling at the fish sanctuary. The island tour only comes in next to my favorite list. BTW, wre you able to sample the food at the bee farm? It’s like the equivalent of Sonya’s Garden in Tagaytay with their organic food. Brings back gustatory memories. he he he.

    Hey Doc Z,

    We were not able to visit the Bee Farm cause we didn’t have much time. 🙁 We stayed there for 4 days but it was like this – Day 1 (arrived in the evening), Day 2 (it rained whole day), Day 3 (Land Tour) and Day 4 (went back to Manila) :-/ So we were not able to really visit the other places. 🙁

    Hi Freda,

    Yup, sure yan! Hindi ko na pwedeng makalimutan yang Balicasag Island na yan. Sayang talaga yung 1day na umulan kasi supposed to be yun yung araw ng Day Tour namin then yung 3rd day sana namin ang Balicasag Tour. Kaso dahil umulan, kinulang tuloy kami sa oras. 🙁

    Thanks! Thanks! 😀

    Hi allforthebaby,

    Yeah, the deluxe room is ok. The room is very nice and spacious. Hindi siguro sya kasing ganda nung mga villas, pero pwede na rin. 😀 I suggest, you get those that are on the 2nd floor para meron kayong balcony and maganda yung view ninyo sa taas. 😀

    Hi Jen,

    May mga kainan malapit dito kasi along Alona Beach naman yung Amorita. Kaso mahal din yung mga foods malapit sa kanya. Although alam ko may mga mura rin sa bandang dulo. 😀
