The Bohol Tropics Resort is a household name in Bohol, and many of the locals will first name this place when they try to guess where you're staying.
The resort is located a little to the west of the city center, and faces Panglao island. If you have to stay near the city, but still want to escape in a small enclave of peace, this resort with its landscaped garden is probably your best bet.
At the same time, this is the place to be for many of the city's events. Major conventions, miss elections, and the like are all held here. This place also has its own disco and ballroom, and the inevitable videoke bar.
