I was there for Christmas and read many reviews about Boracay. I wanted somewhere clean, bug ftee, hot water and a sensible price. This pkave delivers in all counts. Its welcoming, the staff look after their guests and provide a full consierge service if u want something they will recommend or they know a man who can. Breakfast is basic... More

For the LaBoracay this year, I went with my cousins and we were a group of 8. We got a room enough for us with 4 queen sized beds, fridge, closet with mirrors, a mini table, a space where you can hang your wet clothes and just 1 toilet and shower room. It was a good deal considering it is... More

Hotel is just infront of the beach, in station 2. The room is big (we are a family of 5) and the breakfast is decent, but other amenities are basic. Still, if you are on a budget then this place is good for you.

Terrible hotel. We booked a room for 3 nights for a conference but ended up staying for just one night. There's nothing in the receiving area. The room was ok, average. The cr was small. And the breakfast was a nightmare! The free breakfast we had was just toast and coffee.. instant coffee, wth! I had to add cash to... More

The old location is still my bet. I actually haven't tried when they relocated - only a few steps to the old place, but have heard a lot of complains from the reception to the rooms as well. The old place has a garden at the back and the rooms where far more spacious. It can accommodate 8-10 people as... More

If you are on budget outing to Boracay,need something in heart of Station 2, this is a good place. Very basic rooms, no WiFi , no frills hotel. It's besides Boracay Recency. One more tip for a budget trip to Borac. Book your flights from Kalibo Airport, they are 40%-50% cheaper than Caticalan. It takes 1 hr to get their... More

It is undergoing construction but its ok. Free breakfast is basic, you can add-on for a good price. Most of the staff are really nice. Fruit shakes are really good and affordable, the restaurant outside is affordable too. Rooms are clean and the staff are efficient. We will go back to this place definitely.

El Centro Beach Resort is not 5-star but it is perfectly adequate accommodations. We stayed 3 nights in a room for 4 with 2 breakfasts included. The room was spacious, as was the bathroom. The air conditioning worked very well and we even had a refrigerator and electric fan in the room. There was also a veranda for smoking and... More

First of all, let me say that this is a review of the NEW El Centro. Gone is the old El Centro that everyone who's been to Boracay before the tourism boom remembers -- cottages by the beach, hammocks outside the rooms, etc. The resort is now one the second floor of a building that's located right beside the old...

I am a regular at this hotel. A family owned business not heavily advertised. They've had the same staff for a decade, so they are very consistent. Clean and friendly. Breakfast is plain, but you can add on. There is no restaurant, but they have a shake stand where you can put fresh fruit (and beer) on your hotel bill... More
