Booked 5 nights at Fairways and upon arrival we were given a warm greeting by our shuttle driver who also took us to a restaurant on the way after informing us that the resort stopped serving food after 10pm :) the first night and breakfast was a massive disappointment. After expressing our concerns, Manager on duty Rachel did her very... More

I thoroughly enjoyed this hotel and would recommend it to anyone looking for somewhere to stay in Boracay. It might not be on White Beach, but that's an advantage if you want somewhere peaceful and away from the crowds. The fact that the hotel provides regular, free bus transfers to and from White Beach is a huge plus. The hotel... More

We decided to stay 2 more nights in wonderful Boracay Island! Added the fact that my boyfriend loves golf, we checked online Fairways rates and availability. Before deciding to book the hotel we tried to visit it without success ... The security gate staff was pleasant and nice but seems nobody from the lobby (only 5min walking from front gate)... More

I am a Marriott timeshare owner and was a bit concerned with some of the reviews, but was pleasantly surprised by the property. We were in sycamore building which was great. We had the junior suite which was very nicely furnished and everything seemed new and well maintained. The kitchen could be a problem for some as you can't actually... More

We booked a flight+hotel package at a quite favorable rate, so I did not expect too much from this hotel. Upon arrival, you could see there was some ambition of the owner as the room is quite spacious, view at the golf field and view from the infinity pool is quite spectacular (as you can see in the photo as...

I booked this resort for a family re-union and having kids and infants with us, I wanted to be away from the main beach strip of Boracay. I was a bit apprehensive with the various negative comments being written and particularly after I had booked. I have to say that the resort and in particular Ms. Ibanez the resort manager... More

Решили ехать с мужем на Филиппины зимой. Очень долго искали подходящий отель, но очень многие были уже забронированы, видимо в связи с Новым годом. Наткнулись на Fairways, отзывы на сайтах были разные: от «ужасный отель» до «замечательный, вернемся снова» . Чем ближе к выезду, тем больше было негативных отзывов. С мужем не отчаивались, все равно приходим только переночевать. Прилетели мы... More
