Affordable, New and near the Beach Feb 22, 2012
I originally booked this place for one night and wound up staying two. I wish it had been more!

We arrived at dusk and the receptioist got us checked right in. An attendent took our bags up to the room and showed us how to use the keycard for the lighting and a/c. Man what a nice room! It was brand new! The whole place was really. Everything looked like it had just been taken out of the box. The bedding, the appliances and the furniture, everything! I really liked this room! Comfy beds, a balcony, and electrical outlets everywhere!

We got unpacked and headed to the beach, which is a 5 minute walk IF you don't miss your turn (which is not marked). We wound up walking in a circle, arriving from where we had left! :) We tried again, found the turn and got to the beach.

It's a smallish resort area with shops, dive and tour offices and plenty of restaurants and bars. We wanderede around checking it out and decided to eat at the Annex restaurant. Good choice, because the food was exceptional! I had a spicey shrimp dish and shanghai lumpia...Fantastic!!! Having booked the extra nights stay late, I had to switch rooms the next day, which turned out to be four doors down from our other room. It was just as nice.

I have no doubt in my mind I will be returning here next year, It is that good. Good for singles, couples and families. Check it out!!!

Lost Horizon Is The Best! Nov 06, 2011
Stayed at lost horizon for 3 weeks i must say i was very impressed with the service and amenities...the rooms have VERY comfortable beds and great FOOD! I would recommend this resort to anyone staying in Panglao. The staff was very accommodating paying close attention to all my needs. I would expecially recommend this resort to Honeymooners and Travelers with children. As the resort is directly on the beach and has a great pool to swim in. As well as a world class Dive shop on property. For divers i would recommend Philippine Fun divers as they were great in taking us dolphin watching as well as taking us to all the HOT dive spots in bohol. If i had 3 thumbs i would raise them all! Hats off to Lost Horizon Resort!

Good Resort, Good Location, Crappy Air-con, Crappy Resto Jan 15, 2008
When we stayed in this resort, some of the rooms were still under construction, but I'm sure it's finished by now. The architecture is modern, but there are no recreational facilities save from the small pool. There are apartment-type and villa-type rooms facing either the pool area or the beach. The restaurant/bar is at the front of the resort and can be passed by on the way to the small reception (or something like that) area.

Our air-con room was at the second level of the apartment-type rooms, and good enough for the price that we paid for it (P2,550/night). It comes with a mini-bar, TV, double-bed, closet, and hot & cold shower. A nice tub would've been nice too, but oh well. However, the air-con in our room was leaking, and they weren't able to fix it because their technician wasn't available. It wasn't that bad though, because we still managed to sleep well. There's also a balcony with a view of the pool and part of the resto which, unfortunately, was blocking the view of the beach. But there are a couple of rooms facing the beach complete with big balconies. Just imagine the rates :D

Staff service is efficient enough, and they catered to our every whim most of the time :D One bummer though: whenever we ate at the resto, we had to wait for an HOUR before the meal is served! So I would suggest eating somewhere else because there are plenty of restos along the beach to choose from. On the other hand, the food was okay :)

Aside from sleeping and swimming in the mini-pool, the resort also offers other activities such as island-hopping, dolphin-watching, and a tour of the Bohol Island sights. Not really necessary if you can strike a deal with the local boat operators or tour guides for your sight-seeing for a leser price.

All in all, we had a good experience during our stay. If you happen to be looking for accommodations in Alona Beach, do check it out, but make sure the air-con in your room isn't leaking ;)
