linaw beach resort in bohol

another super long overdue post.

we spent the christmas vacation in bohol. it was tough deciding where to stay – so many to choose from! in the end we went with other reviewers and picked linaw beach resort on the southern tip of panglao

the resort was pleasant in the sense that it’s very private. it’s not adjacent to any commercial resort and so there aren’t really other people aside from the guests – and given the resort isn’t that big, there is not much chance of crowding.

we booked a deluxe seaview room (P4950/night peak season rate), which was on the ground floor facing the pool and we were surprised at how big the room was

this we appreciated a lot because were were there for 4 nights and with the room size, we really didn’t have to worry about where to put things, etc.

the staff was also very efficient and helpful (more about that in the food post following this) and we booked all our tours through linaw at reasonable rates. so all in all, we would recommend this as a good base in bohol. the only possible downside is that the beach is not a swimming beach

you can see how low the water is exposing all the seagrass. so while there’s sunbathing facilities like those chairs, you can’t take a dip in the ocean. but since we went snorkeling and visited another island for the whole dip experience, we really didn’t mind this time around.

and bohol just isn’t about the beach anyway. there’s so much to do, all one needs is a comfortable place to return to at the end of the day and for that linaw is one of the better options out there.
