Bang for your buck. It's an average hotel with basic amenities. No swimming pool though. It has cabanas, sunbathing beds and swing sets at the beachfront. You get to enjoy station 1's serene environment. This is perfect for couples who want a retreat from the busy and crazy wild station 2 lifestyle.

Let me start by saying I am not a "beach" person and can barely stand Boracay, but for various reasons, I end up going there once a decade. Residencia nailed it for me this time. We got room with large balcony, second floor, sea view (rainy season...windbreaks up) really nice view, large room, great shower, large bathroom....breakfast great. Like other... More

Arrived at around noon and were allowed to check in even though it was 2 hrs early, was expecting a welcome drink but none, rooms are big. But no pool compared to its neighboring hotels , free breakfast, has wifi but tends to lag. But you're on vacation

For the price and the 3.5 avg rating on TripAdvisor, I was expecting a lot more. I had an upgraded deluxe room with my 7 month old baby and the hubby. The amenities of the room were pretty run down and old. Our room wasn't ready when we arrived too, which was pretty disappointing. The TV had a lot of... More

It's purely my luck to have came across this hotel coz i always wanted a beachfront hotel and i'm left with a month left to make a booking. After browsing numerous hotels and resorts this is the only one left available out of the 'HotZone' of Station 2 and 3. As you can see Station 2 and 3 are flooded... More

It's my 3rd time to stay in this resort in the past 2 years. And I am never disappointed. I arrived in Boracay on the 7th of November, a day before typhoon Haiyan hit. I have reserved 2 rooms for this trip, with one room to be occupied by my friends who were arriving a day after. Due to the... More

Recommended by a good friend who handled our booking arrangements, we were excited to be able to stay two night. We arrived fairly early in the morning, and was told our room would not be ready until much later in the day. (We had been booked into a standard room). We asked what the price difference was to upgrade to... More

LOCATION The hotel is probably 5 +/- resorts from the top of station 1. It's a great location for those that prefer somewhere which is much quieter during the day when bathing. All of the hotels in Station 1 are high end pricey hotels and this one off little hotel sits in the middle of them. It's about a 5... More

This hotel has appalling customer service, and violates safety regulations. During my stay I was injured in the garden path and turned to the front desk for help. They did nothing to rectify the situation and more than six months later they have done nothing to address the situation. Rooms are not clean, the hotel is noisy, staff and management... More

I booked this place precisely because I did not want to be staying in Station 2, which is the rowdiest, noisiest part of White Beach. It did not disappoint. This is a small, cozy property in Station 1, next to Ambassador in Paradise Resort. From the Cagban Jetty port, you can hire a tricycle and pay around 120 pesos. They... More
