Family-friendly OYO 3. We talked, ate meals and drank together as local bros. We hung out all night. And I cannot forget the last massage at the spa filled my whole body and soul.
I really like the Danaru, and I recommend my friend to stay there and meet nice people. Without Danaru, I couldn't be lost in memories in Boracay trip, like now.
Cheapest hotel available. Facilities are new. The place is pretty new. Wifi access is good. Airconditioning is great and they have shower heater which is also great.
I sug I suggest that they should clean the rooms at least once if customers are staying for at least 3 days.
Should also proactively offer a change of towels and beddings. We stayed there for 3 days and 3 nights. Must also increase security. Overall, its a really good experience and will definitely stay here again.
Shout out to the horel mngr who allowed us to do late check out without addiotional fees. After all, the price were so cheap and still located in Station 1 near grotto.
Most of the establishment in Boracay has poor Internet Connection. Let's live a simply life while in the Island. I'll surely be back and would definitely recommend the place.
La Isla Bonita is a great spot if you aren't going to be staying in your room all day that being said the rooms are not bad at all. Considering you are on Boracay Island, that is likely not the case.
Isla Bonita's staff were really friendly, albeit a little slow at times, and the atmosphere of the hotel is awesome. The real selling point is the location though.
Right on the beachfront of station 3, it's surrounded by good food and music. Isla Bonita is a winner in my books.
Boracay Island on the other hand, that was the real disappointment. Prostitutes, hustlers and sewage water coming out the taps.
This was most likely paradise at some point in the distance past, but the usual taint that follows western and eastern tourists was apparent at every turn.
Locals, living in squalor on the mainland, flock to the island in hopes of making some cash. This ultimately leads to said prostitution and hustling, the most annoying of which is the fact that you can't walk 5 meters on the beachfront without someone running up and incessantly offering different activities to do on the island.
And when you politely say no, they follow you for 5 meters telling you all the other activities they offer, to which you have to tell them sharply, no.
This process is repeated until you, the tourist, now know every activity offered by every company on the island.
So, if your looking for paradise, look somewhere else. In fact stay at home if you can't be bothered to care about the well being of the island and you're looking for a 'fun luxury' holiday.
Go pollute your own country instead of keeping the demand going for the destruction of other peoples. Nice place easy to find and very accommodating staff guided me on how to reach their place from the Jetty Port.
No sink though. Will book again soon. Casa D' Estrella Apartelle truly deserves a much higher rating. Hidden behind the imposing presence of a huge 4-star hotel in the heart of Boracay Station 2, this apartelle is by no means lacking in value or significance.
It definitely excels in the quality of its service, affordability and hospitality. Our family of 6 stayed here for only a night but all of us left t Roger's place is a sanctuary, far from the crowd of Boracay but close enough to enjoy the White Beach.
If you're adventurous I would recommend this place, you can experience being a "back rider" of a motorcycle, see the beautiful hills of Boracay, or just relax at their rooftop.
Staff Roger and Dietmar are very friendly, very accommodating, making sure that their gue Staff Roger and Dietmar are very friendly, very accommodating, making sure that their guest are comfortable and would have everything they would need.
They have a garden as well for you to enjoy nature. Room is very pristine and well kept, a definite 5 star in that aspect.
The only downer that I've experience during my stay is that the wifi signal is not that strong in my room room 2 , but other than that everything else is perfect.
It is very accessible to all. It is only a few 2-minute walk to the beach. It is super convenient for us because most of the time we cooked.
Also the staff were friendly and accomodating. The only cons is that there are rotational The only cons is that there are rotational brownout so almost everyday we experienced brownout but the good thing is they have generators for alternatives.
Overall the whole stay was amazing. Will recommend this place and will absolutely booked accom here again when we plan to go back to boracay.
I got very very sick on my stay and the manager himself find a way for me and my mother to cross the island to buy the my meds and till i got relieve.
He was with us all the way from boracay island to caticlan. Their hotel 1is spacious and close by the beach.
Boracay island hotels are not luxury from the standard point of view. This hotel in particular is very confortable, the rooms are clean and confortable and the food is really good.
The best feature of the seawind resort is location. When I arrived I have a problem with the room asigned that was inmediatly solved by the hotel personnel at my entire satisfaction.
The hotel is located also very near from the fun part of the island; restaurants, bars, activity centers where you can booked all kinds of water activities diving, parasailing, helmet diving, hoop island tour, jet ski, etc.
Complimentary breakfast and daily yoga truly relaxed my body and soul. Staff are attentive and friendly. Excellent signature massage but my first choice was not available.
Free internet access but unstable and weak. Easy access to the beach and restaurants. Pity that the villa didn't provide room service, instead we were transferred to restaurants for food delivery.
Overall we enjoyed the stay at Mandala and we will return if we visit Boracay Island again. Really a good deal for your money with daily breakfast included, even better than the breakfast buffets we had on numerous occasions in Hawaii.
Everything at the hotel is in excellent shape. The staff is so nice and extremely helpful, especially Ferdy the food and drinks manager and Rene t The staff is so nice and extremely helpful, especially Ferdy the food and drinks manager and Rene the restaurant staff.
They totally went out of their way to make us feel so welcome and have an enjoyable stay. Would definitely come back again in the future!
For many hotels people say that staff is excellent, but we have traveled the world and the most pleasant, helpful and kind staff is for sure in Haven Suites, Boracay.
They really make you feel special and are really helpful, supportive and caring. They are hard working and really interested to assist you whenever needed.
The hotel is very clean. Rooms are spacious, as Rooms are spacious, as well as bathroom. The bathroom is really nice. Every day the staff provides you bottles with drinking water and three snacks.
In addition, you get a lovely 'Good night' notes There is an outdoor pool not so large, but nice and bar and access to the White beach is min walk.
This is not a big hotel, however i am very satisfied with whole service in Mandarin Island Hotel in Boracay. Friendly staffs and great location and very delicius food, etc.
This is really great time with this hotel. I really appreciate to all front desk staffs with very kind and I really appreciate to all front desk staffs with very kind and friendly staffs.
Thank you all of the staffs in Mandarin Hotel. Better than I expected. Upon arrival we we're welcomed by their friendly staffs at the reception, was given a welcome drink and was made to really feel like we are very much at home.
The beach is not that far away from where our hotel is. Everything seems Everything seems to be reachable at any given time.
Room service was so quick and the food was very nice and on our last day of stay we were surprised to see a platter of fresh fruits right on our bedside when we came back.
Overall, I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone who would like to have a relaxing vacation in Boracay. It's a very-new, modern, posh as you can say compared to other hotels in Boracay with great amenities like the lounge, pool and gym.
It's very clean and you really feel luxurious during your stay. Breakfast buffet is good. Staff's are over the top with their service to make sure you have a very memorable stay.
Only downside really is the location, as it is on the main Only downside really is the location, as it is on the main road, but that could be a plus for some guests, its only a few minutes away from the front beach anyway.
Highly recommended! It was an awesome resort hotel to stay in. Because I visited Boracay from Aug 20 to 23 during its rainy season in Philippines, the location of the hotel was better than the ones on the White Beach because the Bulabog beach had low waves and less winds.
Also parasailing activities and scuba diving and etc. The hot The hotel had generally great service and breakfast. Because I stayed at a deluxe double suite which is the highest level of rooms at 7Stones, I was mostly satisfied with the interior, furniture, space and location of the room.
Especially I loved the mattress of the bedroom. It was firm and comfort that I could have a deep sleep during the stay. However, just one thing I was surprised at the hotel was the fact that I found a huge cockroach in the bathroom once.
It was not running around but it was standing on the wall of the bathroom faucet area. It was disgusting to look at but I didn't want to make a hassle to chase it around in the early morning so I left it as it was, and later it disappeared somewhere.
I didn't mention this complaint to the hotel while I stayed so I am not sure if the staff is aware of this problem. I am sure the hotel is managed as clean as possible always but I think prevention of insect propagation is the issue of the hotel.
Otherwise, overall I would definitely like to recommend this hotel to my friends who visit Boracay. PS The wi-fi internet didnt work very well in bedroom area.
It was only strong in living room area for me. I hope this service can also be improved later. Absolutely fantastic property with little to say but WOW.
The staff couldn't be more helpful, especially Wes, the manager and Jon the driver who accompanied me to the seafood market and bargained local prices and even took the girls into town late Saturday night and ensured they came back safely in the early hours.
I can't wait to stay here again. Location : Situated at station 1 , the hotel is right on the beach , approximately 20 minutes away from the jetty , 1.
This small 3 story hotel has approx 22 rooms with balconies , a restaurant on the beach that looks out into the ocean , has a good menu that includes the famous Nigi Nigi burge This small 3 story hotel has approx 22 rooms with balconies , a restaurant on the beach that looks out into the ocean , has a good menu that includes the famous Nigi Nigi burger.
The hotel does not have a swimming pool , the room rate includes break fast with a limit of PHP Check in 2 PM , check out 12 noon.
Plus point : early check in if available at no extra charge according to their website , I don't see this anywhere else , where other hotels do try to make whatever extra that they can.
Rooms: Booked a Deluxe sea view room, the room was well furnished with some interesting artifacts , furniture and beautiful wall hangings, rooms are simple and basic , but contain everything that you may need.
This is a well-kept clean spacious room, and clean bathroom. The bed is not your deluxe 5 star category, but I had the most amazing sleep on it, with my back problem , I never felt so rested.
Miscellaneous: To be honest, I was deciding between the Strand and this hotel , and primarily chose to stay here due to its location , a decision I do not regret , the best part of this hotel were the staff, I found ALL the staff EXTREMELY polite , friendly and courteous , this can really make a big difference to your stay , no matter how bad or great the facilities are.
Room mini bar, is well stocked and reasonably priced. Breakfast is a limit of PHP In my opinion I felt that it was more than sufficient, though I have read that others have found this an issue.
In my opinion , the restaurant and bar is reasonably priced. Laundry services are. It was an excellent choice to book and stay at Karuna.
Everything are worth it. Their excellent service will transpire in all ways. An absolute perfect staycation moment. I will cherish all the memories we had at Karuna.
Great stay at Villa Caemilla in Boracay. We choose this hotel due to the fact that it's on Boracay station 3 which is more quiet than the first two stations.
The beach is stunning as we imagined it and the rooms were spotless clean. Outstanding was the performance of the staff when we left the hotel.
There was a property fire on the island so everything was a bit hecti There was a property fire on the island so everything was a bit hectic as clouds of smoke and ashes covered the island.
We got provided a room to wait until our delayed driver would arrive. Since we ran behind the original pick up schedule the hotel manager booked us a chartered ferry so we would reach Caticlan airport still on time.
The additional cost was not charged to our account. So all in all a very good choice if you stay on Boracay island.
It is located in Barangay Yapak, at south-east of Boracay Island 10 to 15 minutes tricycle ride from Station 1, 2 and 3.
It is for those who want a peaceful holiday. Access to two gorgeous beaches. One is Punta Bunga Beach 5 minutes walk from the hotel - it is a private beach shared by few resorts like Shangrila and Argonauta.
Going there is easy because it's down t My legs ached haha!!! It's a good exercise though. Free shuttle service from the resort to Puka because it's 20 minutes to walk or depends on your age :D Also a gorgeous beach with quite strong waves.
With few locals selling souvenirs and drinks. Few tourists too unlike in Station 1, 2 and 3. Had so much fun swimming there :. Monaco Suites exceeded my wildest expectations.
Located in solitude on Boracay Island in the Philippines, it is just a few minutes ride via hotel shuttle to the increasingly popular White Beach on the other side of the island.
Just an excellent place for that special getaway. All the staff and crew were polite and friendly, the rooms are new and always clean, the food is also very good no need to go outside of the resort!
Considering the state of Boracay currently, going out will be really a challenge and their topnotch amenities are really a blessing to our vacation.
When we needed to go out, they have a reliable shuttle service that you can take that will save you from all the hassles of commuting in the dusty road the roads in Boracay are under construction.
Astoria is hands down one of the best beach front hotels in that area of Boracay. It is not cheap but not too expensive as well, I guess that's why all the rooms are booked days ahead.
Rooms are great, spacious and I would suggest you get a pool access one as you would really enjoy that. The pool is great and has some beach beds half submerged in the shallow area as we The pool is great and has some beach beds half submerged in the shallow area as well as the ones with mattresses and improvised leaf-sun-umbrellas on the top.
There is also a shallow kids pool interconnected with the big pool. Restaurant is good but being at the beachfront of that area of Boracay means you are minutes away from other great restaurants located along the beach path.
Beach area has a dozen or so beach bed where they could serve you a cocktail or two, but you should also keep in mind that now along all the beach they have built a wall of bamboo net covered up by plastic transparent film, it was made to prevent sand swept by the wind inside the hotel area.
At one moment it may be limiting your view but from another point you will quickly realize that it will give you some privacy from the beach hawkers and that's a good thing believe me.
The other thing which I didn't like about the beach is that there is an armada of sail boats parked in a row there which limits your place to swim, and in the evening when lots of people come to take a ride on them you may find yourself maneuvering to avoid being hit by leaving - coming boats so it is better to get in water a bit further down the beach.
This Villa has it all Firsly I have to mention the amazing staff, that not only look after your every need and request but become your friends and really enjoy every interaction with them..
This mansion over looking paradise is everything you need for any occasion. It has views you dream about and extras you've never even thought about..
Before we a group of Before we a group of 13 even left for our holiday we were contacted by Steve and he organised how journey from the airport to he villa, and arrived to a beautifully prepared BBQ dinner.
Booked this place cuz the view was stunning and upon arrival it did not fail to dissappoint! First thing you see when you walk in is the stunning view of the sea, room is very spacious and clean, staff were friendly.
The only thing probably that you would slightly complain is the shuttle bus interval is every one hour. But overall, I would def comeback here, great pla But overall, I would def comeback here, great place to stay if you want a nice and quiet time and something different from the busy station It was a comfortable stay!
The area is quiet, minutes away from the beachfront, we also cooked in here. Der White Beach ist soweit in Ordnung. Dort gibt es jetzt ein spezielles Vehikel, ähnlich einer Kehrmaschine, die den Sand glättet und hoffentlich auch reinigt.
Last not least, wurden die Fluggesellschaften angewiesen, nicht zu viele Flüge nach Caticlan und Kalibo anzubieten, um die Insel nicht gleich wieder zu überlasten.
Stand Dezember gibt es aber allein am Boracay Airport 15 Starts und Landungen täglich.
