Awesome service! The food is good. Buffet breakfast! The hotel also has an airport shuttle! The island is amazing as well and the hotel is only 10 minutes away from the airport. Don't hesitate to visit this hotel!
It's our first time to stay as a family, me and my husband, 1 yr old and nanny. The last time we stayed here was before we got married. The rooms are big enough for a family of 4 and the bathrooms are absolutely divine. What sets the resort apart is the food, the breakfast is amazing and truly represents Boholano cuisine. I live their native hot chocolate. The wifi is strong as well, so you can post your family photos real time.
First off, I would like to say that this will truly be a long rave post about Bluewater Panglao Beach Resort and how they seamlessly and beautifully held our wedding there. For fear that I might forget something or someone, I'd like to itemize everything. 1. When we were still scouting for wedding venues in Panglao, my husband conducted an ocular inspection in various resorts in the island, including BE Grand, Amorita, Mithi, etc. But it was at Bluewater Panglao that we truly felt we would be accommodated perfectly. Ms. LHENNY ESGUERRA, Senior Account Manager, was there with us since day one. She has been very hands on and always going beyond what was asked of her. She helped organize everything and even recommended everything. Whenever people would ask us why we chose Bluewater, we always say that a big portion of this decision was because of Lhenny. She is truly amazing and deserve a raise from Bluewater! 2. When we came back in late May to sign contracts and finalize everything, we also had a food tasting and HEAD CHEF ERWIN was there personally there to receive us. It was not a typical food tasting where food would just come and go, but he would really explain every dish and would accommodate questions and suggestions from us regarding the taste. The food was awesome, especially the fish! Everything was perfect, from taste to presentation and the guests loved our 7-course meal buffet! 3. As for the event styling, Bluewater also went beyond what is expected. As a couple, we always try to be open to the creative insights of our suppliers, so we only told them our color palette (nude, pink, blush pink) and let them do their magic. SIR DAVE BANGLOS, event stylist, is also another star of the wedding. The guests kept raving about the setup of the ceremony and the reception. The flower arrangements, the setup, the wedding arch, everything was looking Pinterest-y and the guests thought we had our own event stylist not knowing Sir Dave is actually an in-house stylist of the Bluewater and that everything was already part of the package so we didn't have to add anything to the contract anymore. 5. The VENUE was also very perfect for us! We held the ceremony at the beachfront area and the reception at Kawayanan Hall and everything was delightful and very pleasing to the eyes. Not to mention, ALL THE STAFF are commendable! Very courteous, attentive, and quick. We never encountered any problem with anyone and their staff are highly-trained and calibrated. To mention some of them, we'd also like to give a shout out to GORDON and PEACHY for their assistance during our stay there. 6. Lastly, the morning after the wedding, we had the traditional tree-planting ceremony at the garden. This was done by all couples who get married at Bluewater so they have something to look forward to when they come back to Bluewater. We planted a lychee tree and promised to come back in two years with our little one and hopefully share a fruit from our tree! Big thanks to Ms. LIZA LAPURA and MICO for assisting us. All in all, we had the perfect wedding thanks to Bluewater Panglao. It was like a dream come true and I would not change a thing. Everything was like a fairy tale -- the kind of wedding any woman would wish for!
It was a great trip going to Bohol and had this free stay from one of myfriends. the staff are nice, The service was very good. Good job on you guys. The sunrise and sunset scenery was just so lovely. i loved my stay. two thumbs up!
The staff were so nice especially Ms Liza and very helpful finding transport etc. It was so nice to be able to spend afternoons in the pools and have a lovely dinner by the sea. Better to go to the resort restaurant than into town where it's noisy and overcrowded. The rooms are great; big bathrooms, good aircon and showers and great wifi everywhere. Everything works. We shall return!
We had a wonderful stay in the resort. Ms. Weng and the all the staff we had encountered did a great job. Kids said they loved their stay in the resort. From the room that was so spacious, from the food that was served and they were able to use and enjoyed resort recreation and amenities... Thank you Mr. Jerome Martinez for the recommendation and assistance.
Been there last May 24, 2019. Although, there's an epic fail happened during our trip going to bohol, but when i saw the amazing and beautiful blue water of the sea and the white sands, i was so inlove by them. For me that will be my number 1 place for me, coz i came in el nido palawan or in some beaches in the philippines, but bohol is now my favorite place.😍 I hope you guys must visit panglao bohol. Because, the people there is hospitable, kind and generous. and the place is so clean even the waters around their places. You can see the different kinds of fishes even you are on a shore.🥰 You must try Loboc river floating resto, tarsier, island hopping,snorkeling, bike zip, dolphine watching and the night life there with fire dance.😁
Our dream wedding came to life. We made the right choice when we booked our wedding reception at Bluewaters Panglao. The service and the food was impeccable. We really love the overall vibe of the place as it is very relaxing with all the plants and landscapes. The staff are pleasant and very professional. Though our original venue was at the beach front, due to the bad weather, it was moved to Kawayanan Hall. But the staff efficiently transformed the hall up to the last minute. I would like to commend Miss Shiela for being so patient with all our request. Dealing with her throughout our wedding preparation is stress free. She is very easy to talk with her calm & bubbly personality. Thank you Bluewaters for being a part of our biggest day ever. Jhona & Aryz
It was a dream wedding for us that came true. First, it was a pleasure to work with the staff. Friendly smiling staffs who are always willing to help. They answered all our needs from the ceremony up to the reception. Second, the place is amazing. The view of the beach. The clean rooms. And the good food. Internet connection is good. Special thanks to all the staff of Bluewater especially Sheila Baldo for assisting us for our wedding needs. Thank you Bluewater, Jeff & Meggie
Stayed overnight for a business trip and upon arrival, front desk are friendly and welcoming. Staff are always ready to assist. They had two big pools which were all 4 feet. Beach not swimmable per management. Two levels only, you need to carry your luggage up the stairs as there were no elevators. Thanks to roomboy who were so helpful. Rooms only had glass sliding doors covered with curtains. I used my keys to lock it from outside but inside there was no double lock to lock the sliding doors at night as you sleep. Wasn't sure if this was secure enough. Room had a safe, weighing scale, bathtub and shower but limited toiletries. My tv signalwas intermittent but wifi and AC were strong. Overall, it was a pleasant stay but quite pricey.
