Bottom Line

Located on a pristine stretch of Doljo Beach, the four-pearl Bellevue Resort Bohol sits on a beachfront in Bohol. Its 152 spacious, contemporary rooms are equipped with modern amenities like air-conditioning, free Wi-Fi, and minibars. Rooms have uniform, earth-toned decor, but some offer more space making them ideal for families -- the hotels main clientele -- or groups of friends. Although it's generally a quiet spot, thanks to its somewhat isolated location, the resort can get noisy when it hosts meetings and events. As an alternative, travelers can head to the luxurious Amorita Resort. Its location on Alona Beach can draw noise, too, but guests are within walking distance of many bars and restaurants.

Scene

Appealing, contemporary resort with a boisterous atmosphere attracting families and events

Located right on Doljo Beach, The Bellevue Resort Bohol has a tranquil, somewhat secluded beachfront spot. The property has an elegant exterior of white buildings topped with a zigzagging roof propped up with wooden beams. Inside, exposed wood beam ceilings, woven lantern lights, and indoor fish ponds set the atmosphere. But it's the property's pool, a cobalt blue body of water practically bumping up against the beach's sand, that could be the Bellevue's biggest draw.

Despite having location removed from neighboring noise, the resort itself can get noisy thanks to families with children, live music in the restaurant, and on-site events (they're relatively commonplace here). Guests tend to be families, though friend groups, couples, and even the occasional business traveler, frequent this spot, too.  

Location

Beachfront location, with little in the immediate area 

The Bellevue Resort Bohol is in a somewhat isolated location, meaning there's little to do in the surrounding area that can be reached on foot. But beach lovers will find the spot ideal as the hotel sits on a pristine and peaceful stretch of Doljo Beach. The area is mostly made up of other hotels, though they're far enough away that the Bellevue still feels private. There are a few shops and a handful of restaurants nearby, but for the most part guests will need a car or taxi to explore the area. The more lively Alona Beach area, which is teeming with restaurants, bars, and cafes, is just an 11-minute drive away. 

Rooms

Spacious, stylish rooms with copper-toned decor and minibars

Guest rooms at The Bellevue Resort Bohol have a modern, contemporary aesthetic with stylish coppery stone accent walls offset by teal details. Pale wood floors, crisp white bedding, and custard-colored walls give a soft, neutral backdrop. Little flourishes like crown molding and recessed ceilings add a high-end feel to the spaces. All rooms are comfortably sized, and each offers a separate sitting and sleeping area. 

There's a variety of room types, from Superior Twin Rooms that give ample space for a couple or a pair of friends to Junior Suites or Bellevue Suites that can comfortably hold groups or families with children. Amenities throughout include free Wi-Fi, air-conditioning, flat-screen TVs, coffee and tea-making facilities, and well-stocked minibars with alcoholic drinks. Many rooms offer ocean views from furnished balconies, though it's worth mentioning that not all of the guest rooms on-site offer this feature. Bathrooms are sleek and modern and all have a large walk-in rainfall shower. Some guest rooms have a bathtub, too. All bathrooms are equipped with hairdryers and Kudos Spa toiletries, and bathrobes and flip-flops are provided as well. 

Features

Long ocean-facing pool, kid-friendly amenities, and three restaurants  

With little to do in the surrounding area, The Bellevue Resort Bohol's features aim to keep guests fully occupied on-site. The star feature is the property's broad pool that offers guests an unbeatable view of the ocean. Shallow areas of the pool give kids a place to swim, too, and there are plenty of loungers and cobalt-blue umbrellas on the pool deck. There's also a lifeguard on duty, a rarity at most resorts. 

The beach just beyond has clean white sands and deep blue waters. It's set with loungers, umbrellas, and a few sunbeds, and even some hammocks. There's also a volleyball court and soccer nets set up in the sand. A small shop on-site caters to beach-goers selling items like sunglasses and swimsuits.

Inside, guests can workout in the resort's functional gym or try a treatment at the petite spa. The resort's game room aims to occupy kids with a variety of entertainment, including a slide and small ball pit, foosball, air hockey, and a ping-pong table, and some video game consoles. 

For dining, guests also have the option of eating inside or alfresco, and can choose between three different restaurants that offer either a casual open-air setting or a more formal one. The food in general garners positive reviews from past guests, though some complain that prices seemed a little high for the area. Guests can also get drinks at the restaurant or the resort's sports bar.

Those hunting for space for weddings and other events could book out the hotel's ample event rooms.
