“Best Resort in Boracay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2014 via mobile

My husband and I love this resort so much that we go back everytime we are in the Philippines. Staffs are friendly and courteous, best beach front location and luxurious room; huge room and bathroom. This is the second time we availed the same executive room where it faces the pool and restaurant. Close enough to hear the live music at night; beach access and far enough for privacy. The resort offers free transportation to and from the d-mall and wet market.

My husband and I got to ride the boat with the owner of the resort. Very humble and friendly man. :)) We would like to thank all staffs for making our stay enjoyable and memorable. We hope to see you all next year!!!

In the last 12 months I have travelled overseas to Europe, USA and Asia 9 times and paid far less for better quality, service and amenities. Cost over AUD 400 per night. Buffet breakfast was below 2 star hotel with poor food quality and menu selection. Bathroom in room had stale odor. Despite staff being geniunly friendly and nice but clearly lacking management direction. However Boracay is the most beautiful island to visit.

Firstly, great location but let down by the service despite lots of staff.
We booked an executive room (sea views) which has a view of the hot water systems and kitchen vents from the bed and lounge chairs.

They ran out of towels at the beach lounges; next day we had to find a waiter at the beach lounge area, who after bringing the drinks list did not return. 30 minutes later I found them in the bar area chatting and then brought the wrong drink. Similarly, we ordered lunch and waited 40 minutes for our meals (5 people in the restaurant).

We are really disappointed by the service. This is not what we expected or paid for.

James

This hotel is really over the beach, no trick like others that have only the bar on it, you go out your room and you are walking in the same sand of the beach, quiet location (not during Chinese New Year, when you can find some noisy Chinese groups, like many other places then). The restaurant Al Fresco is nice, average prices, some Philippino dishes and a wide offer of western food, also some Dutch delicacies.

The hotel employees are very nice and ready to help you in everything you need, the beach is amazing and when they realize you always pick the same place on the pool they reserve it for you.

The Ocean View Suite (4 people ocupation) has two floors, very big, bathroom is good as well, and are very clean.

Room Tip: Rooms with ocean view has no a great view, may be only the first one (C-1), so ask for the Garden Vi...

We glad that we stayed at this resort for rest of our trip in Boracay.
Really a beautiful beach front resort. You can just enjoy the most beautiful beach at anytime you want. We got a fantastic ocean view room. The room is big with high roof.
It is a smaller facility with warm hospitality. The staffs warmly welcomed us and warmly see off us on our leaving day.
Highly recommend it!

Restaurant Food over cooked, & Restaurant violating Philippine law and refusing to give "Senior Discount" to Seniors without authorized government document when 99 percent of restaurants honor with simply Philippine Drivers License or Passport. Don't waste your money. Waitress service good location excellent.

Went back to Boracay last Dec. 2013 for the New Year holidays (last visit was in Feb 2013 during CNY holidays) with in-laws from the UK. I noticed that they relaxed their rules on bringing food, reminding you about henna tattoo...I mean I did not try bringing food, but neither were they in your face checking your bags and carry-ons for these things. To me this is really better, as the previous behaviour was so irritating.

ANyway, our vacation was altogether very memorable and perfect except for the inbound airport transfer arrangemed which had been messed up by the hotel. In short,depite prior arrangement, no airport pick-up was made (well, there the typhoon and alleged flooding can be partly blamed for that I suppose, but am not altogether convinced as the other bigger hotels like Discoveyr Shores and Shangrila were able to send someone to pick up their guests). It was stressfull at best, having to find other ways and begging Southwest to accommodate 6 people in their otherwise already fully booked buses.

The hotel can improve on this area...the bad weather had been making itself felt for days, the least the hotel can do is to anticipate and make other arrangements and give us a call. For people who pays (the hotel is not cheap) for comfort, this should be a given.

The hotel is nice, location is perfect, the restaurant is good...just continue to improve service. I guess the management is listening too as I did feel some improvements in our 2nd stay....

Room Tip: For Ocean View room make sure to specify that you need an ocean view room..not a back of a bldg view...
