Just returned from a week at the resort with my Wife and 3 young children and had quite a mixed experience here:
- huge apartments with great balconies. Very clean.
- fantastic panoramic sea views from all over the resort
- nice friendly staff
- good gym facilities
- the food in the restaurant is poor. Very average breakfast. Lunch and dinner options were almost all western (strange for a resort in Asia) and quite unappetising. We had to send a number of dishes back.
- the resort is not really set up for young kids despite the obvious family appeal of the suites. The pool ( while very nice) has no shallow end (5ft deep throughout) and the children's playground consists of an old metal slide and swing tucked away.
- the resort is quite remote. They run a good bus service, but if you miss it you can't easily get into town.
- very little atmosphere, and no real attempt to create one - happy hour not advertised, no promotions or entertainment on site.
All in all, while we enjoyed our stay in Boracay, we found ourselves wishing we were closer to town and spent most of our time in the white beach area. The resort really doesn't try very hard to encourage guests to spend time or spend money there (seems to rely on the view). We wanted to spend more time their and with a better restaurant option and restaurant we definitely would have done.
