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

I had a total of 127 bed bugs bites in my 5 day stay. Here is my story. My family and I flew in from California for our yearly Philippine vacation. We stayed at The Tides from July 9th-July13th- the 1st worst experience in our 5 returns to Boracay. We were checked in rooms 323 and 321. On July 10th... 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

Upon check in you are also given the password for free wifi and coupons for complimentary cocktail drinks at their bar (Solstice).

I'm normally not very picky when it comes to hotels, but i do put a huge weight on value for money. It doesn't have to be fancy as long as the basics are there. For The Tides, however, i was extremely disappointed because even basic things such as having strong water in the shower wasn't covered. The water flowing from... More

I have stayed in Tides in May 2013. Better late than never I thought, and hence the review. I am 100% satisfied with my stay at Tides. I booked a standard room and it is totally worth the money i paid. The roof deck offers a great view with the pool, cabanas and Solstice Bar. The complimentary spa treatment is... More
