Clean enough. Breakfast and Dinner good enough. At this price, you can't ask for 5 star hotel cleaness, facilities, hotel food. I didn't find anything dirty or any bugs so I think it's clean enough (not SPOTLESS clean). AC worked great, hot water worked, wifi in the lobby. Free breakfast and dinner! cheap drinks, providing towels and clean linens everyday... More

Honestly I am surprised at how many negative reviews this place has. Stayed here during laboracay 2014, it was a last minute booking. Yes it was quite far from D*mall, the center of Boracay but we didn't mind the long walks going to station 1 and 2. The place is perfect if you are on a tight budget and wants... More

The room is simple but clean. Wifi is a little bit weak in the room. Hotel provides free beach chair for hotel guests! The location is a bit too far from the nightlife in Station 1 and 2. And by walking, about 30 mins to Station 1 and 10-15 mins walk to D'Mall which is located in Station 2. If... More

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
