Ernest's Place may not be as ridiculously fancy as some of the resorts on Boracay, but it is a very clean and quiet place to stay. On an island jam packed with tourists, it's nice to find a place that isn't beside the beach crowds or party-ers. Yet with the island being so small, Ernest's Place isn't far from anything.... More

We made our reservation last December 2014 four our trip this March 2015. I just have to call Ms Seoly a week before our arrival just... More

Some other guests made alot of noise during our stay at the outdoor tables, staff should have told them, to keep it down as it kept us awake. Basic... More

We stayed here for four nights during Labor Day week, and booked three months in advance. The owner gave us the rooms at a discounted and very reasonable price! I was extremely satisfied with their service! The staff was very accommodating, and the rooms were spacious and clean. I actually like that it's located about 5 minutes away from White... More

Rooms are designed with a class. You can get privacy here amidst the crowd in Boracay because this is a small place and guests ca feel ar home. The owner is accomodating, you can request her ir staff to cook for you for a fee. D mall is just a few meters away from this place.

My partner and I stayed in this hotel for 3 nights and enjoyed every minute of it. Pros: affordable - ate Seoly, the owner of the place gave us a discounted rate. Even without the discount, the rooms were already affordable for it's price; Room amenities were complete - hot & cold shower, water heater for coffee or cup noodles,... More

It is strategically located between Boracay Strip (across D'Mall and BPI Boracay Branch) and Balabag stretch. It opened on the latter part of 2011 and to date, has only 6 units which are fully occupied mostly by Koreans and Germans on a short-term lease of about 3 months usually during summer here in the Philippines. Ernest's Place is designed to... More
