Arwana hotel was definitely the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. Whenever I read the other recommendations it seems like we were in different hotels. The room was very dark and at the other end of the hotel. I have never expected beach view as this was never stated anywhere but without light you could hardly see anything. Unfortunately... More

Went to Boracay with a group of 8 adults and a toddler so we had 3 rooms. 104 was big but the bathroom was very disappointing. The shower and the toilet and the sink were squeezed into a very small bathroom area so the toilet seat was constantly getting wet from the shower. The room was also right in front... More

Room 301 has mildew. Next room 302-304 has no privacy. An issue especially if you need to open the windows when there is no electric power. Boracay has rotating black outs, something you should keep in mind. Bigger hotels have power 24 hours a day, this place doesn't even if they have a generator. Washroom is dirty and tiles/grout have... More

We stayed in Arwana in October for 3 nights. As we were with a big group of friends, we had a chance to check different types of rooms. Superior rooms were good - situated on a second floor, quite spations (in comparison with the Standards), nice bathroom. Standard rooms were very poor - small, wet, without the proper bathroom, on...

The hotel has its own beach chairs and loungers for the use of the guests.It’s one of the perks of choosing beachfront hotels. You don’t need to rent chairs and recliners. You are also provided beach towels if you need them. The... More

Stayed in a twin room for 3 nights. This was one of the few budget hotels at White Beach located at beach front. This saved us trouble and money from renting beach chairs and loungers. Selecting a beachfront hotel at the White Beach is an important factor for traveler intending to spend time lounging at the beach. (1) Location -... More

This little hotel is great if you don't want to spend a huge amount on hotels. The breakfast which is included is great. Pancakes are awesome! The hotel has happy hour from 1pm to 10pm. Although the cocktails are not the best. Beers are cheap. The beach is right outside the hotel which is great. Rooms were pretty tiny but... More
