“May be far from the White Beach but Awesome”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013

Alta Vista is located in a hillside of the northern tip of Boracay and is very far from the Whitebeach. However ever, they compensate the distance by providing free hourly shuttle services to the 'D Mall. But it operates only from 8AM to 12MN. Hence, if you are a party brat, you'll definitely not gonna gonna like it - taking a long tricycle ride and an uphill hike to your rooms.

The infinity pool is amazing.

Their accommodation is perfect for a group of 4 - 6 individuals. Utilities are billed separately with the Room fee. I mean, they'll compute your total water and electricity usage and add it to your room rate. Check their website for updated room rates.

Room Tip: Choose a room that is closer to the reception so that you won't be hiking to reach the shuttle...

We stayed at Alta Vista de Boracay on 25-27 Dec 2013. We were a big group of 20 pax and booked 3 lofts. The lofts that we were assigned to were quite far for the main building ( this is were the reception, restaurant and swimming pool were situated) but we noticed foreigners were assigned to the lofts nearest to the main building. Our lofts were not ready when we arrived as there were no complete sets of towels, toiletries, and beddings. They will only bring needed items when you call in (e.g. Bathroom rug). However, I am glad that the staff are very helpful and polite. They are very prompt with housekeeping requests (this is considering the room necessities are incomplete). For hotel choice, I would probably choose hotels near the beach area for . convenience even though Alta Vista provides hourly shuttle buses. The hotel is not cheap and can probably get rooms for the same price at The District, Boracay Regency, etc.

Folks - I had travelled to Boracay in Dec'12 to spend my honeymoon and spent 6 nights here. After considerable research, nailed down on Alta Vista for two reasons - 1. Very luxurious and exclusive, away from hustle bustle of the town 2. Proximity from party places -Station 1. This property suited me so well. They have a free shuttle every hour to De Mall(hub for partying/restaurants/shopping) which makes it very convenient to get back after late night parties. They provide access to private beach(Puka beach) which is so awesome in the evenings. the sunset, landscape...heaven!!! They do provide a free shuttle to the private beach as well.

We received a very warm welcome with drinks. A pretty woman was assigned as an attendant. She guided us to the room. We had booked a studio suite and the view from our balcony was beautiful. Very spacious rooms, romantic bathroom fittings. There was romance in the air. The property itself is so huge and beautiful. Good to explore on a pleasant evening by walk. I loved the complimentary breakfast, very sumptuous and rich variety. The staff were very courteous and loving. Couldnt have expected more from them. So warm in the way they welcome every day with that brilliant smile. Overall i felt its a value for money resort at the same time luxurious. It has a charm, typical tropical charm. Since the property is huge, i would suggest to request for a room close to the reception. There is splendid swimming pool right next to the reception. Spent an evening there soaking myself in the warmth. Free Wii-fi connectivity in the lobby area, otherwise its chargeable in the rooms. But why would anyone want to hook up to ipads/iphones on a vacation.
For honeymooners I strongly recommend this place. If i had to visit Boracay again, this would be the place.

A prefect getaway !

The hotel and staff are excellent. When I was looking for where to stay there was so many options in Boracay. It is a bit of a walk to the main area but worth the peace and tranquility the hotel enjoys. The shuttle bus service is excellent and runs every hour from morning to night

We had a loft room which was really large and well equipped with everything you need. The staff are very well trained and very efficient, always there to help when you need them.

The only comment would make is breakfast was a little so so and tailored towards Asian food and not the best quality. I have to say though it didn’t in anyway take away from my holiday

If you are looking for a relaxed break in Boracay I would recommend staying at Alta Vista !

Very good service and transport is convenient. We stayed here for 5 days, rooms are nice even though it requires you a long walk to get there (our room) the road offers great view of flowers or landscaping on the side perfect for picture taking :)
our room has a great view and I can see the beach afar I think it's the Puka beach which btw you could go to later as the hotel offers free transfer going there, very quiet and clean (cleaning service everyday ).
The bar/restaurant has a scheduled cultural shows every night, one night we were able to watch fire dance and tinikling and the dancers are really good. The breakfast food is ok very Filipino, who would resist Fil. foods anyway...
The pool is clean and has a great view of mountains.
Enjoyed our stay here very convinient :)

Just completed a 7 day reunion with my 4 sisters in Alta Vista.
Aside from an excellent room with a view, the highlight for our stay here is there restaurant-Alta Veranda. We made several request for native dishes that were not in the menu and every single time, the operations manager-Ryan never said no. Compliments to Ryan and the Chef in not only meeting our request but making the dishes exceptionally well. This made our stay here very special. Many thanks to the managers-Ari, Gee and the staff for making us feel at home.

Room Tip: Have stayed at The Hythemus, Fuji and Blanc buildings. They all offered great views.
