Bohol Coco Farm is both a hostel and a coconut farm. The family running the business is an advocate of organic farming that’s why most of the food they serve in their restaurant comes from their organic farm.
The place is nature friendly and it is surrounded by coconut trees. It has a unique vibe where we feel that we are in a secluded place, solemn and quiet. Also, it is 3 to 5 minute walk from the national road. The path going there is muddy and rocky.
We love the concept of nipa huts serving as a room good for 2 persons. They also have bigger nipa hut (or their dormitory type room) for big groups or for single traveler who doesn’t bother sharing a room with others.
Rooms here are basic but adequate. Types of rooms are private, female dorm and male dormitory. They have common bathroom and it’s on the outside. They separate the shower rooms from the toilet rooms. The water is running good and the area is clean.
The dining area where you can also chill out is also a best place to get to know other travelers staying there. At that time, we were the only Filipino travelers who stayed there and most of the guests are from different nations. We have a little chit-chat with them and the owner about the benefits of virgin coconut oil. And how we should avoid eating processed foods and instead eat healthier food, like organic food. It is really true that you will learn a lot from traveling! 🙂
The food here is pretty cheap and healthy. They also offer free breakfast when you stayed in the place. Food is also good and tasty. It is freshly cooked and harvested from their farm.
The place is close to town and other beaches such as Dimalaluan, Alona and Doljo beach. Other tourist’s spots are not that far away. We rented a bike to go to Alona beach. We paid 100 pesos since we only used it for an hour. You can also rent a scooter for 500 pesos and bike for 150 pesos per 24 hours to roam around Panglao.
The place is great and I highly recommend this for backpackers. It is very cheap and has a value for money. Also, the staffs here are very friendly.
