Had a great time here. It's simple and affordable, but is extremely well-kept and Bernie and her husband do an excellent job of running the place. They are wiling to help with anything and everything that they can in order to make your time in Boracay amazing. I ended up getting a nasty stomach bug. Bernie heard I was sick... More

I stayed at Trafalgar for 5 days, and Joel and Pearly were amazing hosts. Every morning I was greeted with a friendly smile. The room was great. It's no frills, but it was comfortable and clean. The location is great as it is less than 5 minutes walk to the white beach, but because it is off the main strip... More

It's getting harder and harder finding quality accomodation offering good value in Boracay, but Trafalgar Cottages offer simple and affordable rooms in the Station 3 area. Joel, Julia, and the rest of the staff are super friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. They make their guests feel welcome and important and are always there for them. The location is right behind a... More

Nice value for money if all you need is a place to sleep and you are not picky about comforts. It is very straightforward, no frills. The room is relatively clean but the service deteriorated over the years.I first stayed here in 2007, being first timers we were welcomed by the owner and were given plenty of instructions to find...

Nice place, great environment. Definitely get your money's worth. However they double booked us and the owner ( the man) was very rude about it and tried to blame us ( bad attitude). The lady that works there is lovely and took us to the doctors when we were sick. Overall, great stay x

I ve stayed 5 days in Boracay Island at Trafalgar Cottages. The position is nice, close to the beach (the white Beach) but a little bit far from markets if you want to buy things of your own. The staff is really friendly and helpful, cause they told me what to do and where to go suggesting always good solutions.... More

This is inside a little market at e mall so feels safe. Ask the tuktuk driver to point you in the right direction. It has a great rustic feel to it. The rooms are basic clean rooms with cold showers... Thats ok because its hot!! Most rooms have a little balcony with a hammock. The common are is where you... More

We spent quite a lot of time here and enjoyed it a lot. The people who run this place are so nice. The wifi works best in the common area which I'm glad was the case because we met a lot of good people there. Some nights turned into drinking games and kicked on from there. The location is great...

Probably the best budget place on island. The owners created a homestay atmosphere, so you feel as a part of their big family. Even though we arrived at night before the day of our check in, we were given a shelter in a rainy windy weather, so we even had a chance to rest and sleep a bit in their... More
