Ok...i know what you are thinking when you scroll through all the different hotels & resorts on booking or agoda: Baling Hai seems rustic and a bit outdated in comparison to the shiny brand new hotel complexes dotted around the island. Let me tell you: the photos are deceptive. Yes, being one of the first resorts on the island, it... More

I love beaches but I've always been allergic to Boracay. It doesn't matter how many times it turns up in the list of top 10 beaches in the world, I told myself I'd never visit that overcrowded, overrated place. Until a dear friend of mine decided to have their beach wedding there. Having no choice, I was determined to make... More

If you've been to Boracay, you know White Beach. It's undoubtedly beautiful, don't get me wrong, but it's also SO overrun with tourists, you can't really relax -- or at least we can't. We like nature. We like a little funky. We don't mind a tad rustic. And we hate big hotels with people above and below and on either... More

We loved this place, beautiful view from the Rock House, lovely hosts, a chance to stay in nature. We were worried about having no air con at first but then realised that it wasn't needed. Although I didn't love Boracay, I did love staying here. Catching a tricycle from here was a little annoying as you had to wait for... More

A beautifully sculpted small resort, set into the jungled cliff face. Staff could not have been more helpful, beach is stunning, food was good and the rooms unique. They rope your lunch down the cliff to the beach for you! Yes, there are a few of natures little beasties around, but that all adds to the charm. And yes, there... More

The view is excellent. And this is the only they HV. Resort is in jungle, this type of "eco resort" need alot of effort to maintain, obviously they didn't do it well. And with the price I paid, they not event provide basic toiletries like body shampoo, hair shampoo, and hair drier. No Blanket provided and so cold at night.room... More

By the beach, through wild intricated path of green tropiacl vegetations, far from the road and the mess of Borocay. A truly quiet spot where to relax and have your breakfast/snack/dinner on the tiny private beach coming down from the kitchen in a basket. A recommended place if you don't mind not having windows in the bathroom and enjoying the... More

The hotel is good. The room is comfortable the the view from the room is amazing. There is not many options of bars or restaurants near to the hotel and the hotel food is not so good. Be prepared to all the steps, many to go to the beach and to go out!

One thing first - if you are a family with small kids or an elderly couple with walking disabilities don't go there. if you are looking for the all exclusive beach-club resort with flat-screen TVs and breakfast buffet - don't go there.... For all the others - this place is special and a real hidden gem. Inbedded in the steep... More

Getting here was dodgy! You turn off the main road and you will pass by these village houses with small farming land and animal rearing; like goats, pigs, chickens... I really don't recommend walking in from the main road (cos some of the trikes ask whether they need to send you in...). The staff are really friendly and nice. They... More
