We stayed at this hotel for one night, on our way to Cebu from Boracay. The location is very good, near airport, walking distance to market and the only shopping place in Kalibo. The staff was friendly. Don't expect anything other than the basics which was all we wanted. We took the room with 2 double beds. It was clean... More

We checked in to this hotel considering that it has a good ranking in all the reviews but...but..well its budget friendly.

we needed somewhere to stay for a night while transiting from Boracay and this place fit the bill - it was cheap and decent, but not somewhere to get excited about - room was tiny, but had air-com and wifi. staff were friendly.

We selected the "top" reviewed hotel in Kalibo as we did not want to arrive late at night at Boracay. Gald we did, others who travelled through after arriving on Tiger flight from Singapore arrived at Boracay only at 8pm ! Service: Staff are totally blur about booking, about where to eat. Did not tell us that the hot water... More

For the first three nights of my stay with my boss, we were given the big room on the ground floor. Room was very nice since it is very spacious (heck, even the CR is very spacious!) so you don't get the feeling of being cramped up.
