We have travelled in February 2014 through Philippines. Stayed for 5 Nights in La isla bonita. We had the Satandard Rooms in the backjard. At our Time there did some maintenance work go on so we he had quite early some noise around the Rooms. Rooms are average, the bathrooms a nightmare. We had a stinky Bathroom! Probably from the...

Based on my own experience this is a contender for the title of the worst hotel you can possibly stay in at Boracay. When you arrive you are given a two page document of rules to sign......no you don't get a copy. There is no safe in the room, however for an additional fee you can store your valuables at... More

There is also a little garden near to the swimming pool but it is a waste of area coz it is not functional. Me and... More

One of the receptionist was rude and impolite. They ask you to settle your bills at "check-in" and as soon as you do, they refuse to check you in your room because it happens to be too early. The rooms are quite spacious for the price. The bathroom is large as well. Those were the only pros to this resort.... More

The hotel is situated at Station 3 right along White Beach, perfect for water activities but also for swimming and restaurants. It's a bit of a walk to get to Stations 1 or 2 (and d*mall) but not too far and the walk is a nice one along the beach. The staff were friendly and attended to anything that was... More

Booked two room for our family so they gave us upstairs & downstairs. Our room had an extra double bed but I couldn't get more than the one bed for the rest of the family. Not complaining about that as we booked quite close to Christmas. The 'deluxe' rooms we hired were spacious with seperate onsuites and balcony's. The bathrooms... More

If your travelling on a budget this is it... Located on station 3, near the sea activities, scuba dive, helmet dive, banana boat ride etc, then this is the place... If your into quiet side of the beach just relaxing under the sun, then choose a much high end hotel... As the beach front is full of boats from morning... More

The wifi doesn't reach the room. I haven't been to the other resorts but there are roaches and other bad insects in the bathroom.. The room we got didn't look as comfortable as the photos. And the AC isn't cool enough.. But I guess, that's why the price is cheap. Thank god it's beach front and near activities. Lesson learned.

i really don't do much international travel so i really learned my lesson with this hotel. without hurricane Yolanda, this hotel would have received a higher rating but that didn't happen. what did happen was the hotel lost primary power and had to use its own generator and to save money they were very judicious with its use. talk about...

Really, there is nothing to be enthusiastic about La Isla Bonita. The place has a run-down appearance, and I simply did not feel comfortable. The paper-thin bed sheet over a plastic-covered matress, the lack of pillow sases, the shower which needed repair, the weak AC, the dampness - staying here was not really pleasant. While the staff at the reception was... More
