Surrounded by coconut palms but no coconut juice, "We only have canned drinks".
The food is OK, but servings are not generous. The island is awash with coconuts but none were available; only canned fruit drinks (apart from a lemonade which we discovered later). In many resorts the coconut "buko" juice is a complimentary welcome drink. The dining area is a long open room trying to give the appearance of an Oceanic long-house, but which, in fact, appeared more cathedral like. In the evening, the mosquitoes in the restaurant were vicious. The room had no window that could be opened and the smell of cigarettes was ingrained in the wood and curtains. At the barest touch the hair dryer, which was positioned directly above the bathroom basin, collapsed, receptacle and all, into the basin. This could have been very dangerous, but we were saved by the fact that the tap in the basin was blocked and there as no water. There is almost no beach but there is a large pool, although largely lacking in shade. The pool, complete with pool-side music and kids, was well underway by 7.30 am. Upon arrival, all three of us checked in, and the room was paid for in full and a receipt issued. At checkout time an additional amount of P. 1,500 was added to the bill for the third person, despite having already been paid for. This was unpleasant and unnecessary.

Nice view
Went there as a walk-in client. I loved the place! Clean shower area and comfort room. Staffs are accomodating but they need to be more friendly and smile. That day I don't see a lifeguard on duty. Would love to visit again soon.

An hour of travel from tagbilaran
This resort is more likely private. You can just dine, stay or swim. Dine no entrance fee, swimming EF is 300/head. Nice place. Good ambiance. The pool is just 5ft deep at the middle. Mode of transportation: I advise to rent a van/car or use your private car. Food is delicious. 👌🏻 I think this is a good place to celebrate some events. :) they don't have cakes for surprise bdays but slice cakes are available there for dessert purpose, I advise you to bring your own cake and candles for bday celebrations.

Nice Facility, poor service and far from any attractions other than a beach
If you visit, you will pick up on the poor service; however, the quality of the facility is nice, modern with a native theme. Food is local cuisine and not local priced, tourist priced. BOFFO is actually located on Sandingan Island off of Bohol. Sandingan Island is connected to Bohol island with a causeway that is about two kilometers long that starts just after Moalong Bridge which is still under construction, but passable. After reaching the intersection of the causeway and Sandingan Island, turn left and the resort will be an additional 1 kilometer on the left, just before Basdio beach entrance. Other than a few local videoke nipa stands, Sandingan does not currently have any other tourist attractions. If you are wanting to see other parts of Bohol, transportation will have to be coordinated (plan in advance), which is normally high for tourist on the island. It is a nice place to stay if you want to be away from everything and don't plan on seeing the rest of Bohol. They do have security, although Sandingan Island is very safe, and possibly soon around October, a dive resort will offer some variety of outdoor activity. Currently Sandingan Island's main road that circles the island is under construction towards Mocpoc port which takes you to Cabilao Island that is only reachable by boat. Water and electricity on Sandingan Island has been regular for the last few months but BOFFO does have backup facilities. Once an attraction is present on the island other than BOFFO it would be much more nice of a stay as there are no bike rentals, no motorcycle rentals, and no car rentals, no restaurants (besides the food offered at BOFFO) no souvenir shops either. A trip to Tagbilaran City where there is shopping will be 2 hours round trip (travel time only) and normal vehicle hire starts at 3500 pesos daily in Loon (there are no vehicle rentals that is just working out a deal with some local owner). A Habal Habal to Loon Market from BOFFO is 25 Php per passenger; however, once you are identified as a tourist, the drivers will try to quote you a price around 200 - 300 pesos depending on how naive they think you are. Occasionally you can find a trike, if you want a taxi, it will be expensive because it is probably coming from Tagbilaran City and you will pay the cost of traveling 35 kilometers to Loon before the meter charge to where you are going, so plan transportation ahead. If you want to relax and not be bothered, this is the upside of BOFFO, no panhandlers and the island itself is pretty quiet, even a stroll around the island at night is safe, not well lit, but very safe place for tourist. There are native monitor lizards that are wild and can occasionally be seen, along with a crystal clear ocean with a variety of marine life that can be seen with snorkel gear.

Pretty nice Resort, with bad service.
First of all I would like to say, that the resort is very nice. It has a nice pool, a nice view and nice rooms. It is located on a spot where nothing much is going on and it's pretty far to all the tourist spots like restaurants and white beaches. But we knew that in advance, and we just wanted to chill and relax, so this was no problem for us. But if you like it more touristy, this is not the right location to stay on Bohol. What else there is to say about the resort, besides the nice pool and the clean rooms... Well, the service is pretty bad. We tried calling the hotel in advance to arrange an airport pick up - but we couldn't find a number, and when we called the number Expedia gave us, nobody answered the phone. There was also no email address. So we had to look for a taxi by ourselves when we arrived at the airport. When we arrived at the resort, there was a lady at the front desk. She gave us our room key and showed us where the room was. We never got an introduction, like 'breakfast from eight to ten' or something like this. We had to ask everything by ourselves later. So we asked for: pool towels, water, tours, dinner, the beach, the air conditioning. We laid on wooden beach chairs for 2 days until we noticed that there were mattresses for the chairs, but of course you just get them when you ask. No one offers you stuff like that. We had dinner in their restaurant every night, because there are no other restaurants around. The food was average i would say - a lot of things on the menu are local dishes - what we like - but no one could really explain us when we ordered, what exactly it is. In 4 nights of staying there we had housekeeping just one time coming into our room. We asked for a shuttle to tubigon, which is 25 min away from the resort. It costs 1200 php one way ( around 24 euros) which is way to much for this distance - and it's the same price for an airport ride (45min -1h)- if you have the chance to get one. So we asked for a discount, because we didn't see why this price was so expensive and we also skipped breakfast because we had to leave so early, so we thought at least a discount of 200 php would be okay. After asking the supervisor the front desk lady told us that this was a fixed price, not negotiable. I don't want to be unfair - the people who work there are pretty nice, they just don't know it better. I think no one really trained them. We had a nice stay there, besides the lack of good service we enjoyed the pool and the view. This is why I give 3 instead of 2 points.
