My husband and I had a great experience at The Tides.. from the time I called to make reservations, their staff were very pleasant. When I went to their reservations office in Greenhills to confirm my reservation, I was welcomed by their friendly staff immediately. I told them that it will be my first time in Boracay, so when I... More

This was an average hotel, worth the price you pay for it. The location is great, and the rates are low. The staff is generally helpful and nice. The beds are awfully hard, and anyone with the slightest back problems will have a hard time getting a good night's rest as a result. In addition, something is wrong with the... More

Despite having read some negative reviews, this one will have to make up for it. I personally had a wonderful stay at the Tides Hotel and didn't have any issues whatsoever. The rooms are laid out beautifully with a huge amount with extra space to move around comfortably. The rooftop pool is also worth checking out. I had breakfast at... More

My family and I stayed at the Tides for 2 nights and occupied two rooms. The hotel is only about 3 years old and was conveniently located at the D'mall with lots of shops and restaurants. The beds were comfortable and rooms were very nice. My only complaint was the poor drainage in the bathrooms. The shower area only had... More

At the heart of D'Mall, Tides is a convenient place to stay. There are stores and restaurants all around. The breakfast buffet was very good. We had arroz caldo and danggit during our stay. The staff were courteous and the service was ok. Unlike other reviews, we had no problem with noise. We stayed on the second floor and didn't... More
