Bohol Beach Club was the home of PHILTOA’s delegation on the first day of the What’s Up Bohol? event (familiarization tour on destination update on tourism offerings of Bohol). I think everyone who’s been to Panglao Island and experienced its fine white sandy shores know this resort. Here’s my take on our Bohol Beach Club experience.
I’ve been on this side of Panglao Island in Barrio Bolod twice (stayed on the nearby resorts) and adored the plush ambience of Bohol Beach Club (check rates) from walking on its shoreline. So when I heard that our group will stay on this resort, I couldn’t be much happier.
The resort has undergone an 8-month renovation and we were just in time for their re-opening. And true to their tagline, Bohol’s first is now Bohol’s newest, Bohol Beach Club has reinvented itself into a more appealing resort that is suitable and sensitive to the needs of the guests. One notable thing is the rooms that are suitable for the PWDs (persons with disability).
It was almost night-time when the group arrived at the resort. Rooms and roommates were assigned and after a long day of exploring Bohol we all just wanna slouch and laze into our beds. But not just yet.

Local folk dancers were performing traditional dances as we were ushered to the resort’s shoreline for a fun night. A cocktail party on the beach was already waiting for us. Starters and canapés were everywhere. Fresh fruit shakes, beers and cocktails were served. Everyone was on their party mood. Just the perfect way to cap off our busy day.
Me and my roommate were assigned to the Deluxe room. The double and queen-sized beds are perfect for twin or triple sharing. The room is equipped with the basic amenities (en suite toilet and bath, TV, dresser and safety vault).

Complimentary drinking water and coffee/tea-making facilities are also provided for your convenience. What I love most about our room is the veranda. I could spend some "me time" there or probably abuse their complimentary WiFi (which will only take 10 minutes, tops).
We also get to check out one of their Beachview Suites which I really love. The villa has its own balcony that has a nice view of the beach. The room has a separate living area. The bed is, of course, very inviting. The warm tones of yellow illuminates the whole room that makes you wanna just slumber all day.

The bathroom is perfectly adorned with fresh flowers and I bet you wouldn’t be able to resist the bath tub filled in with water and some rose petals showered over it. Makes you wanna jump into it right away.
We had an early call time and had to take our breakfast earlier than usual. This actually worked for us for we were able to witness the sunrise which, by the way, is really nice on this side of Panglao. The breakfast spread has an assortment of local and continental favorites. Hashbrowns, sausages, breads, omelette and some fresh fruits filled my breakfast plate. Everything was ok and the view while dining was perfect.
Almost everyone set off to the beach right after breakfast and did their selfies. Me and my buddies opted to just chill on one of the beach chairs scattered on the shore. I could just imagine me finishing some few chapters of a very nice book on one of these chairs or maybe the hammocks with coconut trees and the beach as the backdrop – very tropical.

Overall, Bohol Beach Club remains to be one of the best resorts in Bohol. The serenity and exclusivity of this huge property are some of the reasons why guests are coming back. And now I'm dreaming about the hammocks, the trees, the beach, the sunrise, the birds, and everything. Bring me to the beach. Now!
