“Exceptionally maintained Resort in a peaceful area in beautiful Boracay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago

Beautiful Hotel with 2 Swimming-Pools, free WiFi connection and an extraordinarily attentive Service-team.
With the 24/7 free shuttle you reach the white beach within 5-7 minutes.
The rooms are generously commodious and set up very luxuriously.
It's advisable for everyone who wants relaxed holidays with a certain measure of comfort.

This would have to be the best hotel I'm ever stayed in! It was superb in every way! The lovely kitchen filled to the brim with lovely crockery and utensils, as was the fridge full of different drinks. No cheap skateing here. The only blot on an otherwise wonderful stay was the service and food at the restaurant. I was wondering why my fiance and I were the only ones their in the evening. Maybe the other holiday makers had tried it out too and decided not to return. Still the drinks were first class served with luminous mattes underneath which gave the avocado cocktail a lovely glow! But the restaurant aside everything else was flawless! The gorgeous swimming pool with coloured lights and warm water is a delight! The beach is a lovely secluded beach which is a delightful walk up and down the steps through the very scenic and well manicured area of the hotel. Although there were half a dozen men cleaning the beach when my fiance and I arrived it meant that there wasn't much privacy. Bad timing most likely on our part. The beach was lovely and secluded on a day when it's not being cleaned. All in all the few negatives encountered were far far outweighted by all the positive things that that Lingganay hotel has, including snooker, and other games in a big hall. The Castle and surroundings, the beautiful flowers, the superb accomodation with rose petals on the bed, the gorgeous bathroom with bidet and wonderful shower, the kitchen off the lounge room are nothing short of amazing! Free transport in a luxury taxi to the D Mall and pickup again is excellent! I can't wait to stay their again when ever I go back to Boracay. First Class indeed!

Room Tip: They are all good from what I can see!

A kinda quiet place to relax. Huge rooms and fine cleaning service. Nice infinity pool with ocean water. That was a perfect place to relax while it wasnt complitely full.
Transfers to the White Beach dont work properly for way back (it was always a trouble)
A restourant in the Hotel is awfull , but each room contains normal kitchen to cook a breakfast. And there a million of good restoraunts near White Beach.

stayed for 10 days, basically it is not an hotel but they have many apartments all located on an hill, make sure you're fit to stay there.
Staff is extremely helpful and friendly.
reserve an apartment with sea view if you want the best.
this is not a complain, when I stayed there the only guest were from Russia and Cina, few permanent resident are from USA, retired soldier and Germany.
Quite good shuttle service.
a Place to stay if you want to avoid station 2, a real nightmare if you're looking for a peaceful vacation

Room Tip: reserve sea view villa, the view is perfect!!!

A crenellated castle in Anglo-Teutonic style (Anglo: The sword Excalibur sticking out of a rock; Teutonic: Gothic stained glass windows) this is the last thing you would expect in the Philippines. But here it is: The public areas of the Lingganay Resort - even with a swim-in gothic chapel. Eurodisney has arrived on these shores!

The vast gardens of the resort are meticulously maintained. There are two large pools, one supposedly for the exclusive use of adults (ignored by some of the guests - and not enforced by the management...).

The appartments are very spacious and, obviously, the whole construction of the resort was not done on a budget - there is local marble wherever you look.

Unfortunately, this is where it ends.

The appartment I stayed in bore no resemblance to the official pictures posted on tripadvisor (p.ex. there where no paintings on the wall, no table lamps in the lounge, no curtains, etc.).

Pitty, that the bedlinen is synthetic and the pool towels (available at reception) are completely inadequate, both in size and quality.

Being fully aware that my stay is only a few months after the typhoon, I would have preferred the management to cancel my reservation as my appartment was cleary unfit for occupancy and rent: Widespread fungus and mould on the whole bathroom ceiling; lamps not working to the extent that unsecured electricity wires were sticking out of the wall, etc.

Unfortunately, just to vigorously spray heavy scents in such an environement, does not do the job. Mould is a severe health hazard. When the stench from the mould got too terrible (and also too dangerous to my respiratory system) I repeatedly asked to get moved to another unit. The request was not granted by the resort...

Lingganay is a very nice 3 star (own rating) resort, situated on the hill with views to both sides. The premises and gardens are quite beautifully kept. Not quite to my taste is the "Disco lighting" in the gardens and pool areas at night. It would all be so much classier with simple warm-white lighting.The appartments are large and roomy, with a huge balcony with views of the distant sea. Unfortunately, that's where it ends. The furnishings are colourless and boring with nothing to brighten it up, the terrace is devoid of plants or anything to ad a bit of life to the very expensive marble furniture. The bedding is synthetic and with paterns you would expect anywhere but in a resort of this magnitude. The towels are worn and the size of a postage stamp. The appartment had loads of electric plugs, but no light above the mirror in either bedroom or bathroom. There are no hairdriers. You can ask for one at reception, but we were to late, they seem to be very limited. These, unfortunately is what, to my mind, MAKES a resort. I realise that after the typhoon the resort. Has a lot to cope with, but a typhoon doesn't ruin towels and bedding.

My wife and I were looking for a unique get away and decided on Boracay. I emailed Kobe and he said that our reservation was good using the "honor system" and that it would be ready when we got there. When we arrived he upgraded us to a great room and we loved it! Room was huge and had an amazing lanai overlooking the pool and ocean. Room was clean and more than we cold hope for. We had a personal driver who was on call 24 hours a day which took us wherever we wanted to go. It was the windy season so the tourist side of the island was pretty windy so our own private beach was just what we needed. Private beach is small and secluded and just right! Water is warm and clean. Kobe was pretty good to us b/c we didn't know that he didn't take credit cards and we didn't have cash :(. Our whole stay was to be paid with credit card so when we told him we didn't have access to cash we were really worried. He just told us that when we get back to the USA to just wire it to him and that would be ok....unbelievable trust he had in us. Suffice to say when we arrived home we promptly paid him and thanked him for a wonderful stay. We want to go back so bad! Enjoy this cool slice of paradise. Review date for Oct 2009.
