El Portal Inn - One of the Best Place to Stay in Tagbilaran, Bohol

Saturday, March 12, 2016

Finally, I already got the chance to visit Bohol! We booked a flight before but cancelled it because of the earthquake. Thankfully, Bohol continuously establish the parts where the earthquake had a big impact and when we visited last week of February 2016, everything is really back in it's place, the churches are still undergoing major renovations though. 

Before going to Bohol, it's usually our routine to google and canvass hotels/inns that offers budget friendly prices. One of the things I take note of is convenience. Is it near any supermarket or grocery? is it near the main tourist spots in the place where we are going to tour? is the place safe? Those are some of the things we should always take note of.

El Portal Inn is one of the top recommend hotels/inns in Tagbilaran, Bohol. It is also accredited by Department of Tourism. They've been running the hotel for years already and when we enter the main lobby, you will be greeted with their friendly and accommodating staff which is really a plus for me. If you just got off from a tiring flight or trip and you will be greeted with a warm smile, it will totally take away your bad vibes and tiredness.

Our room is far from what I've expected because for only Php 1,325 we got a Double Deluxe Queen with a super comfy bed that didn't hurt my back after sleeping on it for the past 3 nights. I also love the room because for that amount, we already have a mini ref where we can store our drinks or desserts. 

Amenities includes:
All Air-Conditioned rooms
Hot/Cold Showers
PBX Telephone System
CRT Televisions for Standard rooms
32" LED TV's for Deluxe & Superior rooms
Refrigerator for Deluxe & Superior rooms
Wi-fi Internet Service

The bathroom is nice as well. Clean and spacious too. Complete with hot and cold shower 
plus toiletries.

What I love about El Portal Inn is that they have their in-house restaurant which offers really good and delicious food! Trust me, you will feel like you're just at home and you're Mom or Grand Mother prepared your meal for you.

For breakfast, we had:
 Daing na Bangus with fresh mango on the side
Longganisa with Garlic or plain Rice

For dinner, this is what we ordered:
 Sinigang na Baboy
Chicken Curry

I really love our dinner. We ordered Sinigang na Baboy and Chicken Curry with 3 plain rice and drinks. Our bill didn't even reach Php 500. It's really worth it because we don't want to eat at a food chain that night since we already did the night before. Good thing we ate at El Portal because we enjoyed what we ordered. For the record, what we ordered can fill the tummies of 2-3 persons.
