“Worth staying!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

We stayed in Facebook resort for about 4 days and 3 nights. The staff are good and you are even allowed to cook in the kitchen ( for only 300 pesos ). Will sure be visiting next year and we will stay here again!! It made me feel at home! The locals are all awesome, very honest people and helped a lot! Thanks again!

Room Tip: We stayed at D3.. room is good for friends travelling.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

i booked as Villa Criselda and shocked when my transport guy dropped and told "This is your hotel" coz i saw Facebook Resort at the entry... but mr ronnie welcomed me by calling my name, thats good. Rooms are spacious and clean but the surroundings are not well kept, rubbish thrown behind the villas and gives you scary look if peep through windows. 3 minutes walking distance to white beach. Found there many resorts and hotel offer cheaper rates. Very helpful and good staffs.

Criselda resort is now called Facebook Resort, I have no idea why or even why it's a resort its not. Firstly I found Boracay Accommodation to be expensive, now back to my "Resort" try not to get rooms D6 or D7 it's right next to the community kitchen and the banging of pans will wake you up. This place mainly attracts the locals from Manila and there Family's I must say I did meet many of them and ALL were very polite and friendly (genuine lovely people) all had their family's with then and it could get a little noisy at times. The staff within the holiday villas were extremely helpful, you see I had room D7 but was moved a couple days later without an issue, rooms are basic and big I had two queen beds huge shower with hot water, free wireless Internet in rooms, no fans in room only air conditioner ( need fans) air con sucks. big fridge for food, no landline phones in the room, no pool, but they do have a little island bar you can buy some cold beers no need to buy them from the market because prices are cheap, behind the resort is D'telepapa ?? The market fresh fish etc worth a look and they will even cook it for you for a price "choose n Eat" overall my stay was ok I would say I could have gotten the same room in Bali for $30 less, I stayed for two weeks still not a discount but I have to remind you it was peak season/high, want to know more ask me.

Room Tip: Stay away from D6 and D7 rooms try either D13/14/15/16/17/18 there are other rooms too I saw which w...

3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2012

This place is awful. We booked just after new year as everywhere was full except very few places and probably all bad! If you are a western tourist then this place is definitely not for you. It has mainly Filipino guests. We paid 2500 per night which was a rate dictated only by demand/supply. The room of no choice absolutely stunk of damp when we entered. Why they hadn’t aired it was down to the pathetic management which was all too evident. The “resort” occupies a large area in a good location just off station 2. It is a strange thing that such an expensive piece of real estate is so poorly utilized.
At least there was a safety deposit box and fridge in the room, but the free internet was not a good connection. The location was good, just a short stroll from the beach. Staff were mostly friendly.
