Cliffside Panglao is probably one of Panglao's best kept secrets. I managed to stumble on this resort a few days before my trip to Bohol. I was only staying in one spot and I found this gem.
I had the honor of meeting the owners during my stay there. They were kind and very hospitable and have owned the resort for three years after taking it over from the previous tennants. They have renovated the pool, eating area, and are continuing to renovate the front entrance and are creating a beautiful lobby. The main rooms are the original structure, but the suites are additions.
This spot was absolutely perfect. I stayed by myself for a nice quiet getaway and was very content in the pool (with swim up bar), happy hour, affordable and tasty Filipino breakfasts, friendly staff and of course the view. You can rent just about anything from the resort, such as snorkels (with snorkeling right off the cliffs), vacation packages and whatnot, and I highly recommend grabbing a bike. It's not the most affordable (apparently) compared to some other options, but I liked the convenience. They also got another bike for me since I only wanted to ride the 110cc motor.
The staff always went above and beyond for me. There are so many wonderful things that I could say about this spot, but the best part is the calm. Best believe you can easily head over to Alona any time you want, but the quiet at Cliffside is unbeatable.
