This was our first trip to the Philippines and Boracay. Glad we chose Fairways & Bluewater.
If you want a relaxing time in Boracay instead of all night partying this is the place is to stay, although it's not far from the main precinct if you want the occasional night out.
The resort is beautiful, the rooms are massive and all the staff very friendly, from the gardeners to the cleaners to the reception staff.
We stayed in September so it was still wet season, but the rain comes and goes and it's quite nice walking around in the rain as it's still warm.
There was a downpour on our first night and our roof started leaking, but the staff quickly found another room and moved our belongings.
I had the buffet breakfast every morning. The traditional breakfast was quite nice, as was the french toast and omelettes.
Food from the restaurants was mostly good, especially the Asian dishes. I would skip some of the pasta dishes, but hey, this is Asia, so have the local dishes.
Wifi was a bit patchy but worked most of the time and anyway, who wants to spend their holiday using the internet.
The private beach was clean. The water was amazingly warm. There was a BBQ dinner on the beach which was reasonably priced.
