I loved staying here. The room is spacious and clean. the staff are nice and accommodating. I just don't like the way going here because it's very dark. They should put up some light or a walkway.

Fab and best shower in the Philippines!
Easy walk from the main drag and beach or super cheap tricycle if you felt lazy, it's tucked away so it's very tranquil despite the vibrant surroundings. Clean and spotless rooms overlook the pool, it felt lovely coming back to it and the staff are lovely. Breakfast is good and the shower was excellent.

real nice hotel
We had a few days at the northland resort in February this year and had a great time, yes its a ten min walk to the beach , but so what its not exactly a marathon distance is it ? Tell you what this place is good for and thats a quiet and relaxing break, in the five days that we visited this hotel there was very little noise at all (great) there was nobody clowning around the pool (great) and no loud music at night (great). now, some may read this and think what i am describing is boring ? and thats fine by me, but if your the sort of person who likes to sit round the pool or on a hotel balcony and read a good book then trust me this place is for YOU, if your the sort of person who likes to annoy people who are trying to read a good book then this hotel is not for YOU. Like a few people have mentioned the reception staff are a little bit glum,but the rest of the staff were all very smiley and the breakfast was excellent for the philippines. Well done to the owner for keeping this place so nice and peaceful in the noisy commercialism of Panglao, because after all if you want noise then its only a ten min walk to find it !!. PS the little pizza place in the same road does some of the best pizza we have had in the phil. (sorry dont recall the name)

If this were closer to the beach, it'd be twice the price
First of all, before going to any destination, make sure you research, plan, and set the right expectations. We stayed for 3 nights here and it was splendid. We don't splurge in hotels as we don't intend to not spend so much time there anyway but we're not exactly backpackers either and would like to be comfortable and pay a reasonable price. Alona Northland is a beautiful hotel in a small property that's about 5-10 min walk from the beach. Yes, it's a bit far from the beach but that lets avoid the noise and crowds this way. If you want to be closer to the beach and still have the same type of room/s and amenities, then be willing to pay twice the price. The hotel itself has a lovely pool with beach chairs and cabanas you can lounge in. Be aware that their restaurant is only open til 3:00 PM and the menu is quite limited. Their bar, as well as the pool, is open til 10:00 PM. The staff at their restaurant, and the breakfast itself was quite impressive. I often get a feeling that food is hurriedly prepared at other hotels especially when breakfast is plated and are complimentary with your stay but not this one. You can tell that they take pride in how they prepare the food, and with how they serve it. There are other reviews here that say they had issues with the water pressure and the consistency of the hot/cold shower but we did not encounter anything like that at all. What we got was comparable to 5 star accommodations. Did I mention the rooms smelled fantastic? Take note: - Bring your own beach towel with you as the hotel does not allow you to bring their towels outside the property - They charge about $30 for henna tattoo stains on their sheets and towels - Some of the front desk staff are not so friendly but even when they don't smile much, they're actually quite helpful - Private cars or taxis cost PHP 500-600 per way and will take about 30mins from the Tagbilaran port - Tricycles cost PHP 300 each way and will take about 45mins

Okay rooms, location a bit inconvenient, terrible front desk staff
Location: you can't cut through the beach from the hotel so every time you need to go all the way from the main road which requires walking 15 minutes alongside with motorbikes, cars etc. in a not so illuminated road. So location is not ideal. Rooms: spacious although with some nuisances: 1) The shower water not always being hot, especially at night and early morning it was just totally cold 2) The door lock was somehow loose and difficult to lock etc. But most of all what is negative is the experience with the front desk staff. There is a girl who has a negative attitude in general. Unfortunately I encountered an issue with a double booking. I understand that according to the policies they had the right not to reimburse me for this accidental mistake. However you'd expect the staff would try to show some interest in the customer and try to help him solve the issue and deal with Agoda. While Agoda staff was superb in their customer relationship management, this woman at the front desk of the hotel was extremely CONFRONTATIONAL in her tone, unpleasant, and did not take a single step to help and plainly said in a quite arrogant way that according to policies they were entitled to the money and that's about it. She single-handledly manage to make a whole stay unpleasant through her attitude. I did not expect a refund, but at least some minimal customer relationship managemnent skills. She promised she'd call Agoda and did not even bother making a call, which I had to do using Skype myself...

Good choice
The hotel is clean with big rooms, comfortable beds and a nice swimming pool. The breakfast is limited and after some days you will want to eat something different. Aline beach is around 10 minutes walking. Overall, a good choice.
