Because they are going to be re-built into a 200-room hotel sometime mid of this year, I will have to save up and bring my family here before that. My friends and I have come back almost every year for many years to Crystal Sand because of its perfect location in the island, the 24-hour security service, the yummy food,... More

What a great place to stay! We stayed at their only deluxe room with a giant balcony overlooking the beach. It was perfect. The location of this place (and our room) made it feel like we were living on the beach, which is why we come to Boracay. The kids really loved this place for the same reasons I loved... More

Room: The room was so-so. was quite disappointed with the furnishing. Don't expect a nice room! (2/5) View: we had room 205 and was the beach front view. But if you sit on the balcony chair, your view will be partially blocked by the metal grills. wake up to the sea view. (4/5) Breakfast: For breakfast, they only has either... More

This was our second stay at Crystal Sands in two years and we love it as much as we did the first time! Since our last visit a year ago the resort was bought by the Hennen Resort Group and of yet nothing has changed except some personnel who worked there before. This is our kind of place---no flashy just... More

We stayed in crystal sand for two nights. We got to boracay at 10am. We tried checking in early but our room was still occupied so we had to wait for the afternoon check in time of 3pm. They took our things for safekeeping so we can start exploring the island and come back to check in. We got back... More

When I was looking a for hotel for me and my girlfriend stay in for our mid-November escapade to the island with our friends I originally planned to book us a room in The Red Coconut, but as fate would have it they were all fully booked, so I searched and searched until I came across the Crystal Sand.

You can never go wrong with Crystal Sand Beach Resort Boracay. I originally planned to book Boracay Garden Resort (now Hennan Garden) because it’s one the nice accomodations in station 2. However, it was already fully booked 3 months before our travel date. I have no choice but to look for an alternative. There are a lot of choices for... More

How can I not love this hotel? It has one of the best beachfront views, highly commendable staff, they serve good food and they offer big, clean homey rooms. The location is very safe, they have security guards looking over the safety of their guests and the rates are very reasonable given its good location. It's just a few steps... More

Great location especially for nightlife and reasonably priced (we paid approx. £30 GBP per night). Staff were extremely helpful and friendly, also security was really good as well. Downfall - rooms are a little dated.

It's far from the best, but it's absolutely one of the better options. We chose to stay here because the nearby hotels were fully booked. We dined at their restaurant first because before in order to have a feel of the place. They have good food, so that's what sold me initially. The rooms were well-appointed and it's beachfront which... More
