Got a room for 9 persons and it was big enough for us with two bathrooms. However, during our stay, the clogged drainage in one of the CRs was such a hassle since it took them a while to fix it and it's hard to have only one CR for 9 persons. There's also a mini kitchen but when we... More

we were brought to the new party of Tans guesthouse, they still build the floor on top of us... so noise was there, from 6.30am in the morning workers hammering on our ceiling. I asked the front desk if that is a joke, high season and they build another floor. We were offered another room then, in the old building... More

We arrived at 11am but they were cool about letting us check in early. They ended up taking us to the “annex” but the room was adequate (two comfortable beds, TV, AC, and fridge) and the annex is just 50 meters further back from the beach so it wasn’t a big deal. The bathroom basically had dripping water. Even after... More

As always, I travelled again this year to Boracay and chose TGH to be my place of stay. This time, I was allocated the room at the Annex. It's a short walk from TGH main but I find the rooms cleaner and more comfortable. One drawback though was the WIFI connection the time I stayed was non-operational in the floor... More

My first time here was in 2010 if I'm not mistaken. I was very satisfied. For the room rate per night, the room is big and clean, there is a cable tv, aircon, hot and cold shower and it is just beside D Mall. The location is perfect. The staff are very friendly too. I went back here last month... More

The bed has clean sheets and very comfortable. Bathroom is clean, organized and has hot and cold shower. Including in the room is the LCD with cable, water heater for... More
