It was gloomy and the place just doesn't look that nice. I mean, the beddings were unattractive - they were supposed to be white but they almost looked gray. The rooms did not look particularly clean either, in fact, there was a cockroach in our room one night. Service also left something to be desired. To be fair, the AC... More

Had to book in advance from Australia which is something we usually try not to do, but being peak season we thought it would be the safest option as there aren't many online. I spent far too much of my time writing emails to the reception about which room we wanted, how much it was going to cost and the... More

The price is extremely reasonable, location is perfect, right on the beach. The room with the hammock and beach view was spacious and quite nice. There's a beach bar right inside of the place so on Friday and Saturday nights there were loud parties, well for us as a group of friends it was only a plus.

Well, if you don't like block of concrete, but nice small place with a local home feeling, you are in the good place. Very well situated right on the beach. Probably the only green hotel left in the center of the main beach life (huge garden all around the bungalows). The bungalow are simple and clean but with all comfort.... More

Bamboo bungalow is in a great location right on the amazing Boracay beach in station 2. Nice big room (bungalow) which was clean but a little basic . Great balcony. Nice atmosphere with friendly staff. There is a bar right in front so can be a bit noisy at night but that never bothered me. Overall I think it is... More

well, I was not sure if I'm gonna like it at first because I never been in any 3 start hotel. But, it blew my mind. We (me n my fiancee) loved it. Come out from the bungalow area and ta--daa--- there's the blue-green sea and amazing beach. The service was very good too. There was a girl named "Ling"... More

I don't want to say anything nice about this place because I want to keep it a secret. We honestly liked staying at Bamboo Bungalows. We stayed at 2 different hotels before finding this place and we are so happy to have found it. It's not for you if you want all the luxuries of a 4-5 star hotel. The... More

My friends and I decided to extend our stay in Boracay for another night during that weekend back in October 2012. We surveyed a few of the hotels lining the white beach front at Stations 1 and 2 and this was the cheapest we could find (my friend told me she knew of a much cheaper hotel but it was... More

Bamboo bungalow has that relaxing ambiance. Our family got 2 rooms and we were 3 per room. Our parent’s room was located at the beach front and they had a veranda with duyan. Though we were not satisfied with the air conditioner since it is summer and the weather is hot. We think that either it is too small for... More
