Where To Stay In Bohol – The Best Areas & Hotels

//

Bohol is a tropical paradise located in the south of the Philippines with 4,821 square kilometers of beautiful shores, fun-fuelled activities for everyone, and otherworldly landscapes!

In this guide to Where To Stay In Bohol, I’ll be talking to you about the two main tourist hubs, Panglao which is in West Bohol, and Anda which is in East Bohol.

I’ll be giving you a range of accommodation options including Luxury, Mid Range, and Budget to suit all types of travelers.

Also, at the bottom of this post, I have included some other useful information on how to get to Bohol, how to get around, the best time to visit, and a complete guide of the best things to do on Bohol Island during your visit!

OVERVIEW – WHERE TO STAY IN BOHOL

I have divided this post into two different areas of where to stay in Bohol which I have listed below:

Panglao (West Bohol)

Panglao is hands-down the most popular area to stay in Bohol due to its close proximity to the main ferry port which is just a 45-minute drive and also Panglao International Airport which is a short 10-minute drive to the center of Panglao Town. 

Panglao is great for beaches, shopping, restaurants, bars, cafes, nightlife, boat tours, and island tours. There are so many things to do in Panglao that you could easily spend 1 week here and not get bored.

Anda (East Bohol)

Anda is located on the far eastern tip of Bohol Island, approximately 3 hours drive from Panglao. Not many tourists make the effort to travel out to Anda but this is a big mistake!

I spent 4 days in Anda myself and it offers many adventurous things to do such as cave pools, snorkeling, hiking, viewpoints, boat tours, secluded white sand beaches, waterfalls, and more!

Anda is very underrated and relatively untouched, making it the perfect place to explore epic locations without battling the crowds that you will find in Panglao.

WHERE TO STAY IN BOHOL: PANGLAO

BEST LUXURY HOTELS IN PANGLAO

Luxury: Eskaya Beach Resort & Spa

The Accommodation:

Probably one of the most luxury Bohol resorts is Eskaya Beach Resort & Spa, offering a presidential suite with an infinity pool, wifi, first-rate amenities, a private beach, and even a swim-up bar. With the option to go horse riding, water sports, and even fishing, you can quite literally live like a president here in Panglao. This for sure has to be one of the best places to stay in Bohol.

Location:

With its own private beach, markets just down the road, and the airport only 1.9miles away, Eskaya Beach Resort & Spa couldn’t be more perfectly located. If you fancy a day trip, Hinagdanan Cave is just 4.9 miles away.

The Rooms:

One word: Presidential. With luxury queen-size beds, wifi, TVs, iPod docking stations, air con, and private bathrooms with hot tubs, you really are staying in a room fit for a king. These rooms and the entire resort have well and truly earned their way to being one of the top accommodations when looking for where to stay in Bohol.

Recommended For:

Although pricey, this Panglao resort is actually really good for families. With rooms kitted out with entertainment systems, huge swimming pools and even a kids pool, this resort in Bohol is great for the entire family.

Personally, I would say this Panglao resort is great for couples. Enjoy a romantic, sunset dinner on the patio of your villa and spend the day relaxing by the pool. However, this resort has actually been rated 10/10 for solo travelers. Either way, you’d be a fool to miss out on this when searching for where to stay in Bohol.

BEST TIME TO VISIT BOHOL

The best time to visit Bohol, weather-wise, is between April and July when temperatures are hot and there is barely any rainfall. This is also high season in Bohol so expect to see many tourists during these months.

I recommend visiting Bohol during the shoulder months of the high season between November and March which sees a bit of rainfall but usually only lasts for a couple of hours and the rest of the day is sunny.

Try to avoid the monsoon season which is between August and October.

Cebu to Bohol ferry

The most common route is the ferry from Cebu to Bohol which takes approximately 2.5 hours and the cost is around 600 pesos.

There are daily ferry departures from the Cebu Pier 1 Ferry Terminal and it arrives at Tagbilaran Port in Bohol.

Once you have booked your Cebu to Bohol ferry ticket online, on the day of travel you can head directly to Cebu Pier 1 Ferry Terminal at least 30-minutes before departure and present the online booking number to the staff at the check-in counter so they can issue you a seat number.

ARRIVING IN BOHOL

If you are arriving in Bohol by ferry, see below for the best ways to get from Tagbilaran Port to Panglao and from Tagbilaran Port to Anda.

Tagbilaran Port to Panglao (45 Minutes)

From Tagbilaran Port to Panglao, you have the option of taking a shared minivan, private taxi, public bus, or tricycle.

The cheapest option is to take a tricycle from Tagbilaran Port to Dao Bus terminal in Tagbilaran City for 30 pesos. From there you can take the public bus to Alona Beach in Panglao which costs around 50-100 pesos.

A shared minivan transfer from Tagbilaran Port to the doorstep of your hotel in Panglao is another great option for only 300 pesos.

Tricycle rides from Tagbilaran to Panglao cost around 200-300 pesos depending on your bartering skills. I don’t recommend this option because long rides on a tricycle are very uncomfortable.

A private taxi from Tagbilaran to Panglao costs around 700 pesos.

Tagbilaran Port to Anda (3 Hours)

From Tagbilaran Port to Anda, you have the option of taking a private taxi, public bus, or shared minivan.

The cheapest option is to take a tricycle from Tagbilaran Port to Dao Bus terminal in Tagbilaran City for 30 pesos. From there you can take the public bus to Anda which costs around 110 pesos.

Minivans are another cheap option to reach Anda for as little as 120 pesos though it can get quite claustrophobic as they try to fit as many people in the vans as possible.

A private taxi from Tagbilaran to Anda costs around 3000 pesos.

Alternatively, you can get around on the back of a habal-habal (motorbike taxi) or jump on board a tricycle. For a 20-minute drive in a tricycle or habal-habal, you can expect to pay around 100 – 150 pesos. Put your bartering skills to the test!
