Please, avoid this hotel. We booked a room with breakfast for 3 nights. Upon checkin we were told breakfast wouldn't be included despite our booking confirmation stating 'Free Breakfast'. We were charged for breakfast upon checkout and had to argue daily to get them to rectify their error. We witnessed several other check out arguments while waiting for the shuttle,... More

We emailed the hotel to arrange for airport transfer, to which they agreed and quoted us. Little did we know, they were "outsourcing" our business to a local company, who herds tourists from Kalibo airport to Boracay hotels like cattle. The hotel charged us more than twice the direct rate, making pure profit out of us, without adding any value... More

Great view however don't let the view fool you. Rooms poorly equipped there were no lamps no desks, bed was NOT comfortable the walls were not painted. Rooms felt empty. Service wasn't the best and the whole resort felt a little empty. However the view is very spectacular

OK - the bad news first: - The entire resort is a bit worn and tired. Nothing wrong - but night bright 'n' shiny. - The staff stick to the rules and that can be a little annoying, but I guess you can't blame them. I wouldn't want to lose MY job for allowing a guest something outside on management... More

Compared to the pictures on the website, we were disappointed at the aesthetics when we arrived. The hotel is tired, old and needs "freshening up." It appears that their renovations have been going on for over a year. Rooms are clean and the pools are impressive but could do with new furniture, towels etc. The staff are friendly and the...

Well not actually in the room but close enough. Great location with fabulous views, it is a long way from Station 2 and the beaches but they have a shuttle that runs hourly to D Mall that is very convenient. The room we had, a grand view suite which they generously upgraded us to was nice, very large but the... More

Peaceful and relaxing. That's the motif we pick this hotel. The hotel is located at a high area (somewhat secluded) away from the noise of Boracay. There were renovation still and it was indicated in their events I think so. There were a few very spacious pool where you can have an excellent view of the southern island. The cabana... More

We booked this place in a hurry, and unfortunately did not look at the reviews in advance. We paid 180 USD for the room/night, and I think that is a rip-off for for what it was. The hotel is really far from the beach, and although there is a shuttle bus once and hour it is still a bit of... More

If you're looking for a perfect getaway, and a wonderful place to stay where you can relax after a long day & night at the island, I highly suggest the Boracay Grand Vista Resort & Spa. Peaceful, harmonous, & relaxing. The hotel is located at a high area (somewhat secluded) away from the noise of Boracay. The facilities and amenities... More

This hotel presented really well and whilst there were a few issues while we were there the staff were the friendliest and most helpful we have experienced in Asia ever! The restaurant is being renovated so they serve breakfast in a small room down stairs and the selection of food and quality is shocking. There is no egg station but... More
