It was our first time (August 24-28, 2012) to go to Boracay as a family and we decided to stay at White beach de Boracay. I would say that it was worth every cent as they provided us with an excellent service. Though not a 5-star property, they provided a 5-star hotel service. We were fortunate to stay at room 201(beachview room) which is just in front of the reception area. Our room is spacious enough for a family of 3, 1 queen-size bed and a sofa bed for our son. Location is great, just beside Astoria and a walking distance away from D'Mall. Though they provide accommodations only, one don't have to worry as it is conveniently located alongside other restaurants and shops. Don't hesitate to ask anything from the reception as they are all very friendly. We even asked them to coordinate our water sports activities at lower rates compared to what was offered outside. My wife is very meticulous as far as cleanliness is concerned so she would always ask for a broom to remove the sand from our room every time we enter.Our room has a veranda where we have a good morning view of the beach, and at night, a free fire-dance show w/ free live band music from Astoria just beside us. Just don't forget to stock your mini-ref with food(pulutan) and drinks (alcohol if you like). Just a reminder, don't forget to close the sliding glass door so your room will not smell like kerosene from the fire-dancers.
I would definitely recommend White Beach de Boracay to those looking for an affordable place to stay. Why spend a lot for a place just to sleep at night, after all, we didn't go all the way to Boracay to confine ourselves in our room. The savings we got from the hotel allowed us to enjoy Boracay more. To all the staff of White Beach de Boracay... keep up the good work.
