Ocean Suites

During our visit to Bohol, we stayed at Ocean Suites, one of the more popular boutique hotels in Tagbilaran City. We booked a 3-day, 2-night stay via DealGrocer and paid Php7,000, with savings of Php1,000. We chose a Standard Room, located at the basement. It was a standard room with a queen-sized bed, a mini-bar, 24-inch LCD screen and a personal refrigerator. Standard bath amenities and toiletries were also included in the package. The room features a floor-to-ceiling glass door that opens up to an infinity pool.

Aside from the infinity pool at the basement, Ocean Suites has another swimming pool at the lower ground floor. Both are open from 7am until 10pm.

All accommodation packages are inclusive of a buffet breakfast (7am to 10am) in Ocean Suites' signature restaurant -- Azure Restaurant. Don't expect an extensive breakfast selection though. The mainstays are garlic rice, soup, pancakes, sausages, cereal and milk, omelet station, and coffee and juice or iced tea.

Ham, fish, corned beef and veggies

Depending on the day, they may serve either bacon, corned beef, salted fish, fish fillet or adobo on top of the standard selections.

Since there were no other restaurant within the vicinity of the hotel, we also ordered our dinner at Azure. Their menu includes rice meals, Filipino dishes, sizzlers, burgers and sandwiches, and pasta. Price ranges from Php275 to Php550. In terms of taste and quality, their food is very good.

Vegetable curry
Sizzling squid
Giant hamburger with fries
Seafood spaghetti

Those who want to grab coffee and dessert may have their fill of sweets at Ocean Café, which also doubles as a small souvenir shop.

There is WiFi but signal is very weak. Better bring a pocket WiFi or use your data if you want to stay connected.

All in all, Ocean Suites is a charming hotel to stay in while in Bohol. The personnel are very friendly and helpful, and the rooms are clean and comfortable. For those who are going to Bohol, Ocean Suites is definitely recommended.
