My TERRIBLE experience stopped at the booking level. I tried to book two bungalows. After being told at first it was full, I received an email stating they had some availability. It requested a downpayment due to super peak season. I sent the downpayment. Little did I know that Ralph's email got hacked and I just had sent my money... More

It's the great place to see the sun-rising early morning. nice garden in the mountain, lovely dogs' welcome barking, kitchen with necessary cooking and table wares, The most important thing is the nice boss, who have taken us her DIY jackfruit and coffee. Away from the crowded white beach, however in walking distance(right cross the D'mall).

I just left Ralph's Place after almost 6 months in my lovely studio. I stayed from mid October 2011, until late March 2012. The studios are at a lower level than the bungalows, so they don’t have the same stunning view as the bungalows, but then again you only have 40 something steps instead of 80 something and you still...

We have been staying at Ralphs Place for many years and like most of his guests, keep returning. Set high on the hill overlooking the kitesurfing/windsurfing beach of Bulabog, with just 80 steps down straight onto the beach, but a million miles away from the commercialisation of Boracay. 4 pleasant cotages set in large tropical gardens. If you're here for... More

Though based in manila, we get down to Boracay whenever we can. One of our favorite places to stay is Ralph's Place in Bulabog. A small family run resort at the top of a hill. It has probably one of the best views on the island. It's nice to stay away from the crazy tourism of white beach, but still... More

Pros: - Good only for kitesurfers who are staying with Funboard Center, Ocean Republic, Timog or Isla schools, but other schools are quite far to walk to, compared to alternative accomodation. - Nice shared garden area (which can be noisy if the neighbors decide to host a party) Cons: - near to Bulabog beach which is very ugly and definitely...

We stayed at Ralph's place for 6 nights in january 2012. It offered good value, gorgeous bungalows with amazing views. The bungalows were fairly clean, reasonable size (we had 3 people but were out a lot) and surrounded by lovely gardens and big balcony overlooking the sea. The beds were comfortable and there was a nice outdoor setting to eat... More
