Stayed at The Tides from 13-17 August and i must say it's very well located in the middle of the action. The beach is merely a 3 minute walk, if u don't get caught by the attractive shops and restaurants on the way there. The room is nicely spaced but we had a bathroom with foul smell. The smell gets...

This is my sixth visit to Boracay and so far the best accommodation I've been. The location is within the D'Mall Shopping Center (so you don't need to walk far to get to the grocery store), but is close enough to the beach. Mid-priced and not overflowing my guests to make the lobby and hallways feel like a shopping center,... More

I was happy to find this hotel so close to everything. The decorations were creative. The staff was kind and helpful. The beds were comfortable. Unfortunately, the water pressure in the shower was low. (I have to admit that I had experienced this a lot during my travels in the Philippines.) Also because the water pressure was low, the toilet... More

The hotel ideally located in the center of everything and just beside D'mall (not a shopping mall,just a street shops) and walking distance about 3min to the beach. The hotel staff is very friendly and helpful especially the reception staff.The hotel breakfast is... More

First, the bad: There is little to no sound insulation between the rooms and common areas. If someone in the hallway sneezes, you'll know it. Which makes Saturday nights a drag, when dance music is pumping like crazy. Room wifi, though connection is 5/5, cannot withstand the heavy load. My wife and I couldn't even check emails at times, even... More

Website photos are far from what the rooms look like. I was a bit hesitant to book this hotel given that it does not have a beach front view and is not in station1. But upon checking the website photos and reviews, I thought to myself, I'd give this a try. But to my dismay, the room was one of... More

Been going to Boracay for 10 years straight. I'd like to think of myself as a Boracay expert in my own right. First of all, every hotel is different. Always manage your expectations. Each Boracay hotel caters to different kinds of travelers. The Tides is perfect for: Young adults wanting to party and have a good time It's a party... More

This is our 2nd time staying at The Tides. Love the refreshing towelettes to help you freshen up plus the welcome drinks. Upon check in you are also given the password for free wifi and coupons for complimentary cocktail drinks at their bar (Solstice). A day before our scheduled check-in, we walked in and booked their Exceptional Room (2 Queen... More
