I've stayed here several times over the last four years. I like the location -- it's just a few meters away from D'Mall. Rooms are spacious enough, and breakfast is filling even if it's not buffet. Wi-fi is decent as well, though it could be much better. But I have to agree with the reviewers who say that the hotel... More

If you're looking for an affordable place to stay with the basic comforts of home, then Island Nook is the place for you. A plus for me was their complimentary breakfast as my favourite dish; pancakes + egg had the biggest pancakes served. They were definitely generous with their portion, there were times where I could not finish the pancakes.... More

I requested for them to arrange airport transfer few days before arrival...however, no one from the hotel was waiting when we arrived in Kalibo...when I called the staff simply said "I don't know" despite them confirming this via email exchange...(arranging transport from Kalibo is pretty simple...but I did not want to deal with any of it because of late arrival)......

We took 4 rooms here in October 2014. Island Nook is exactly what you'd want from a budget island hotel. Clean room, clean linen and towels, hot shower, acceptable breakfast, easy walk to the beach and that's about it. Some rooms are windowless, some rooms have huge windows opening up to corridors. Some have fans, all have AC. This is... More

The staff was friendly and accommodating. We were charged with a minimal fee for our early check in and we even got discount using Bpi credit card. Breakfast will be served at your convenient time. Just give an advance order. The location is very near D'mall and beach. Very convenient. Overall, our stay was great, nice location, good price.

We were in Boracay from June 6-10 and we stayed in 4 hotels / lodges both in Boracay and Kalibo, but Island Nook was the best one. We arrived at around 11:00 P.M. in B0racay but our reservation at Island Nook was not until 2:00 P.M. the next day. We still went there to see if they still have rooms,... More

Found this through Trip Advisor having great reviews. Island Nook is not located along the beach front side but is just a few walks away from it. The limited selection of breakfast menu is not an issue for me. good side: located near to a convenient store 2. Near to D'mall where you can shop and dine. 3. They got... More

We enjoyed our stay in Island Nook. For one, the staff were all friendly and helpful. The rooms and toilets were clean! And the breakfast that came with the package was hefty and good! :) To top that the room was reasonably priced too! We sure will be coming back here!
