Experience Panglao Bohol During Off Peak Seasons
This is no surprise here, it's natural that when you go visit a place, especially a tourist destination like Alona Beach, prices drop during off peak seasons. This is sometime after September, when foreign visitors are few, and around June and July when there are few local visitors. Think about this, summer break in the Philippines is from March to May, so expect a lot of Filipinos around this time. While summer holiday in the Western countries fall between August and September, and they all love the sun and beach when they go for holidays. Big establishments know this too, they will offer beachfront hotel deals at a much cheaper price.
Conclusively, one sure way to find cheap hotel deals is to go online. It doesn't even take hours to compare cheap prices and budget accommodations. Choose what kind of accommodation suits you, a beachfront hotel or a small room all to yourself, and go out for a holiday.
