We booked this hotel like 6 months ahead because the location, even when I saw some bad reviews but I took the risk. Readers, Make sure u pay attention on the reviews, this place is a crap, they were trying to charging us extra for stupid reasons and the costumer service was bad. The breakfast just too basic, the ac... More

Stay away from this place at all means. Even if they call themselves a resort they are nothing near to the meaning of the word. They have a nice pool where 99% of the guest will be denied access. The reason is because the "only swimming trunks" rule. They have not a clue of the meaning of swimming trunks! They... More

I am banging myself on the wall for not reading some of the reviews here. This place has a very strict set of rules all of which are evil traps to extract large sums of money from the guests. The first and most immediate one is the stained towels that they give you that you later get accused of staining... More

I always like to give hotels a chance but when you are paying quite a bit to stay in a decent hotel your expectations become a bit higher than usual. In this case we were disappointed. After paying for a deluxe double room we were given a twin as there were no others available. We had to push the beds... More

We stayed 2 nights from 21/10/2013. We were on the 2nd floor - just above the restaurant. It is a good size room with all the basic facility. The hot water is just near warm - may be it is still summer at Boracay. The breakfast buffer is reasonable but the dinner buffer is great - a BIG thank to... More
