First, I totally agree that the El Portal guards are GREAT. Second, I have stayed at the El Portal several times and have gotten to know the owners as well as the staff. I have NEVER witnessed any of the staff treat their guests in an unprofessional manner. I have witnessed miserable people take our their personal frustrations on staff...

We stayed at El Portal Inn from June 30 to July 02, 2012. I just sent an inquiry thru their email address and I got a quick reply from Mr. Jose Gallardo. They didn't ask for any deposit and I just paid all my bills upon check out. We stayed in their double deluxe room equipped with Cable TV, double...

Thanks to Pam/Jose and their staff. They really go out of their way to accomodate their guest. While it may appear I am an easy reviewer, I am NOT. I am very selective and we have a saying, we save where we can so we can spend where we want. I have been fortunate to have a Filipina girlfriend and...

We stayed here for two nights before embarking to Camiguin. The service is without fault, the rooms are clean, only WiFi in the room was a bit of a problem. For the price of the room a real bargain. Will definitely stay again there next year.

My good friend and I stayed here very recently for two nights. For the price, I did not expect the room to be so clean, in order, and well-maintained. The hotel staff were really nice and the tour package they offered was reasonably-priced. I will definitely stay here again in my next trip to Bohol.

My wife and I arrived on a late ferry from Cebu with no motel reservations. A local couple on the ferry recommended the El Portal Suites, so we decided to try their suggestion for one night. The motel was very clean, the bed was comfortable, the restaurant decent, and at $22 USD per night, the price was excellent. We had...

Great place! Great people! At a not so expensive price. We had an unforgettable experience at Bohol not just because of the place itself but also the people who are very friendly especially at El Portal Inn where we stayed in. We definitely recommend El Portal Inn to everyone who wants to visit Bohol. https://fbcdn-sphotos-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-snc7/398895_2552244758044_1011655385_32196175_1569817251_n.jpg
