I came for a couple of days to stay with some friends. It was a big resort and a bit unnoticed because it is at the back area. Surprisingly, it had its own beach and huge pools. The resort has high potential for development because it is vast and with golf. Though I don't know how to play!! Haha!! Well,... More

Rooms are so spacious and clean! Staff are so friendly and accomodating. If i'll go to boracay i'll only go here. I can go to the beach and not be bothered by so many people! This is my haven in boracay.

Got a good deal thru dealgrocer a couple of months ago and we finally booked it in August. I was with my husband and 2 year old son. The room was a studio suite which had 2 queen sized beds, a small kitchen and a large bathroom, with a spacious closet. Our room overlooked the golf course and was very... More

after 1 horrible night at Swiper's Inn, we found Fairway through their online booking website and were wow-ed by their: 1. Affordability (half of what i paid for Swiper's) 2. Upgrade to 1-bedroom suite which is near the guardpost, making it convenient to go in/out of resort without using their shuttle 3. Pristine private beach (meaning no unwanted touts, no... More

The resort is exclusive so it gave us that feeling of privacy and we don't feel too claustrophobic because of the many buildings and establishments here and there. Although I came in a lean month, it makes a big difference to have such big area all to yourself, something I didn't expect in an island known to be such a... More

Being repeat visitors of Boracay, we tend to make comparisons on the location and the value of money we throw in for accommodation. We have tried the costlier types of accommodations and comparing to our recent stay in Fairways, we know that we threw in our money well with this resort. It has very spacious, clean and nice room facilities... More

I stayed at the Pebble Beach apartments with my wife and her sister and adult daughter. We were hoping that the cooking facilities had improved as we wanted to cook our own meals using the lovely fresh ingredients available in Boracay. Alas, it was not to be. But we understand that there is an upgrading programme in place and eventually... More

The registration and concierge staff were friendly and helpful. The housekeeping staff in our unit were very friendly and helpful.

Very convenient since they were all ready and we did not have... More

June 5 to 9, 2012 were the dates of our end-of-summer trip to Boracay. I will recall the 'highs and lows' of staying in Fairways and Bluewater.

We are timeshare owners for the past 10 years and have seen the slide in service and facility. The natural beauty of Paradise Cove, their private beach, the well maintained golf course, and the excellent service, kept us returning thru the years. Last year there was a noticeable improvement with new owners coming in. This year, new battery operated shuttles... More
