This was my second stay at Island Jewel which is at the quieter end of Boracay. If you want bright lights, big city head towards Stations 1 and 2. There are decent paces to eat and drink south of Station 3 and plenty of room on the beach. There's room to breathe and the locals do a great job in... More

very clean hotel, loads of hot water, comfortable beds, decent wi-fi & continental breakfast and the location is very quiet. Laundry service available next door for a cheap price too. When coming here from the Jetty port you must tell the Trike driver to take you to the "tree house", it's the more know and nearby hotel/restaurant. The only con... More

I and my friend stayed here for 3 nights. The room is bright and clean. The staff are kind and friendly. They provide the good services (room cleaning, breakfast), and there is also security at night that makes us feel safe. However, it is quiet and not so crowded here. If you love party or something rock n roll then... More

It's only like a minute walk from the beach and the beach at the end of station 3 where the hotel is located is so much nicer than the station 2 beach which is so full of people all day long. It's about 10 minute walk to the d'mall where you can find all kinds of shops and restaurants. Rooms... More

We went for this hotel as it was the cheapest hotel rated in the top 20 hotels of Boracay and significantly cheaper than the rest. First impression was that the outside did not look like the photo on tripadvisor, and I got the impression it was right on the beach front which it isn't, although only 2 mins walk to... More

The photos don't match the hotel or rooms. Still I found the refrigerator very nice. The staff very friendly and helpful, even when we arrive very late. The free breakfast is good, even with Instant coffee. The only concern is no taxi driver knows where it is, you have to say "to the Tree House". Still overall, a good budget... More

Stayed at the Island Jewel Inn for 4 nights in January 2015 alone. I booked a double room and was given a big room on the 2nd floor. The hotel arranged the shuttle from Caticlan airport to the hotel for me which I would highly recommend as arriving at Caticlan and the ferry port without pre-arranged transfer can be overwhelming,...

We picked this hotel because of the reviews and I wasn't disappointed. The room was very clean (and cleaned daily) and the staff really sweet. I liked most that it was quiet and off the beach (but a very short walk to the beach). Breakfast was toast and fruit with tea or coffee and a juice. Simple, but pleasant. Station... More

My girlfriend and I consider ourselves to be avid budget travellers who also want luxury without burning a deep hole in our pockets. Overall, Island Jewel Inn soars on many points. Love the location, literally less than a minute away from famous 4km long white beach in Boracay, love the cleanliness of the room, and also nice decoration of the... More

This hotel is well worth the walk. Located in station 3, but in a private and scenic location that had me spending more time in the room than originally planned. Simple but delicious breakfast served each morning. Nice room with windows and a balcony out front to hang drying towels or swimsuits. Amenities provided. Clean and well kept. Welcome signs... More
