I live in TX and this was my first time leaving the States so I was heavily reliantly on TripAdvisor for my hotel stay. I must say, after staying in 6 hotels, this one is the only one where I was really surprised with the high ratings :-/ The staff was friendly, and the room and breakfast were K but... More

This hotel was nice but BEWARE ! They charged us for drinking one of the sodas in the fridge when we clearly didn't since we know how expensive it is. We counted the drinks when we got there and didn't mind them our whole stay there. We stayed there for about almost a week. When we checked out, they told... More

As per my previous reviews of the property, True Home has always been our accommodation of choice whenever we visit Boracay. Last month's trip was no exception as we got the same excellent service and warm welcome we have always gone 'home' to. Many thanks and kudos to Ate Che-che for taking good care of us and always remembering that... More

This hotel is near Station 1, which is near all the main restaurants and nightlife in Boracay. They provided good service to us. They provided tricycles when we checked out as the ferry to the airport was not picking up in front of the hotel. When we checked in, we were literally dropped off in front of the hotel.

We stayed in a Junior Suite room with a great view. But on our 2nd day, we went out and when we came back in the evening, our aircon wasn't working. I went downstairs to ask assistance but only the security guard was not around. Apparently, there was no staff or anyone in charge to assist us. The guard called... More

True Home is a quaint little rustic hotel in the more quiet Station 1 almost reaching the edge of party central Station 2. My room was huge with a comfortable king sized bed with a pullout mattress underneath. A big breakfast tray was brought to my room (choices are presented the night before) every morning exactly at my requested time.... More

Stayed here for 2 nights. We were pleased to find our room much bigger than we had anticipated ( around 25 Sqm or more) which is bigger than most budget friendly accommodations. The bathroom is newly renovated too. Although if you are sensitive to dust I suggest trying other newer hotels since my first night was not that sleep friendly.... More

The breakfast is so nice. I love it. Though furniture's need some upgrade. You know what an old wood smells like. The safe box doesn't work. I like the bathroom. But the TV does not face the bed. I'm a little bit concerned about the doors. The isle outside the door is not exclusive to this hotel. So a lot... More

We weren't expecting much. But we were pleasantly surprised by the friendly and helpful staff. The room was clean and comfortable and the beach was a very short walk. The location is very accessible. There are enough places to eat close by. We enjoyed our stay. because we felt at home.

I understand why they chose the name "true home" because it feels like you're at home. They have everything you need. Friendly, warm and polite staff's. Great comfort in every room you choose. Name it they have it. I truly recommend this place and it's a great choice for me. Been here 5x and I keep coming back.
