Over rated hotel
Reviewed 29 March, 2020
Con: Hotel is very old, toilet is dirty and Bedsheets stains. My room is at ground floor facing the swimming pool. The beach unable to swim. Location not so convenient. I would to stay near Alona beach area.
Pro: friendly staff and outside have nice view.
Not worth the price! Not recommend!
Average hotel, could be awesome with just some little efford...

We had the 2 bedroom appartements A and B.
++ staff is very friendly
+ overall the hotel is in a good shape
++ the food in the hotel restaurant is good and cheaper or at a comparable price to Alona Beach restaurants, but you probably can fin cheaper eateries, if you try.
+ no buffet breakfast, but there 6 different types of breakfast that you can customize to your liking
+ the rooms are clean
+ massages in the hotel(600PHP) are good and cheaper than Alona beach(800-1500PHP).
If there are no curtains hanging, ask for them in advance or they will not hang them and you get no privacy when massaging.
--- the wifi placement is bad at best... 4/5 on the balconny, 2/5 in the living room, 1/5 or nothing in the bedrooms. I expect 4/5 everywhere for the price tag!
- Internet speed is OKish(sitting next to their router). 25Mbit down /1MBit up. Bu it's very unstable and laggy. I just could not play a MOBA without major lags and interruptions. Even tried at 4am and was still bad... They have PLDT as provider. I dont know what otions they have, but they need to pimp um their game here... this is unaccceptable for the price they are asking...
-- The bathroom is aweful. No shower gelly, no toilet brush or water jet, the faucets are rusted, mold everywhere, toilet seat is disgusting, the shower door handle is loose.
What annoys me the most is that the bathroom is in good condition overall, just fix everything mentioned above and it is a good bathroom... just noone bothered to do it...
- No free transfer to Alona beach and back.
Charges are 150PHP for a tricycle(1-3person, if overweight only 2, otherwhise you won't fit) or 250PHP for the Van(12 max) one way... for a 5 minute drive...
- Also no free airport transfer...
=yes there is a construction 2 meters behind our appartement, no it was not bothering us much and I am a light sleeper.
= the landing planes fly by pretty close, but there arent that many per day, so it was not bothering us at all.
- The sign on the wall says 3 star hotel, but in the Inetnet it was advertised as 4 star?

Beautiful resort, but construction next to it. The rooms are very noisy, so you need to be lucky to have very quiet neighbours. Staff not especially helpful. The restaurant is good, although breakfast was definitely not up to the standard.

The Linaw Beach Resort is as my title suggests....is Tranquility at its best.
You will find professional and attentive staff from front of house Lizbeth, wait staff, great food and housemaids where attention to detail is second to none.
If you want to be away from the tourist area of Alona Beach then this is the place for you. It’s not far by trike into Alona Beach and if relaxing by the pool or eating in the restaurant the food here is very tasty. Our package offered breakfast each morning...don’t miss it as it sets you up nicely for the day ahead plus you are pleasantly served by friendly waiters.
I will return in the future...thank you to the management and team at Linaw Beach Resort and Restaurant!
