Booked the tonglen beach online for an off season break with wife and her family 6 adults. It is a modest but good hotel, with breakfast. It is about a 5min walk to station 3 beach and at night a little dark with narrow alleyways to negotiate. Rooms are basic but clean, pool is nice with a large grassy area... More

I did not like my stay there, it is just very average and expensive compared to rest of Philipines, but I guess that is Boracay also. Pros: Location and swimming pool Cons: Old interior and just nothing special. No "good feel" about the place Additional note: I did not like Boracay.

The title says it all really, perfectly placed just off the main road, closse enough thats its 5 mins walk to banks and supermarket but far enough away not to hear the endless traffic. About a 10 minute slow pace to the beach. Food reasonable and tasty Rooms are a bit tired but cleaned daily. Sheets and towels changed often.... More

If you are looking for a budget place in boracay with outdoor pool,quiet and relaxing away from the crowded beach front , this is the place. Staff are friendly and helpful. There is a need to check the condition of the bathroom as well as the water.

I have been to Boracay over 20 times. Tonglen is a nice and quiet place between White beach and main road where you can enter the resort. it offers privacy and a nice sweet water pool. Rooms are little bit outdated but with new air conditioning. The price and staff is friendly and have been working there for many years.... More

I reserved three rooms online from their website where we got the best price. When we finally arrived, everything went smoothly. Staff are very nice. They really take care of the surroundings and the rooms. Perhaps very minor improvements in the rooms are needed but would definitely go back here. Service is really great.
