We loved the location, the staff, and the room at Boracay Beach Houses. We stayed in the Zen room. But, just as others had noted, we had significant Internet difficulties. I understand we aren't staying in a metropolitan area with perfect WiFi, but the problems we experienced here are self-inflicted at the property. They weren't a result of island Internet issues -- it was a router problem, and no one here knows how to fix it. Unfortunately one of us had significant business to conduct, and we couldn't do it from the nice air-conditioning of the room. We had to continue to go out into the community and look for a spot with WiFi connectivity. I don't think the management understands how important it is to be connected if you are trying to run a business while staying on the island. Outside of that, we felt it was great. The food that Andy cooked us one night was the best meal on the trip, and generally the staff is very cordial and helpful (outside of the Internet area, where they are lost). The properly is located in a great area, a bit far from things but that's what we chose, because Boracay can be pretty wild and noisy. The only other negative is that one time we came back to our room and the maids were cleaning it up, but there was another guest sitting at our table chatting with the maids and we felt uncomfortable that someone had been allowed in the room with our stuff spread out everywhere. Also, one night when I had a security issue and wanted to talk to the security guard, we found him sound asleep outside in a chair.
