5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

I was looking for a resort that had a kitchen so we can cook for our big family.So glad to find Nirvana.I love its total ambiance.Its accessible to everything too,like the marketplace,DMall and of course,the beach.I would highly recommend the place,hopefully though that the construction around the hotel will be done next time we come.

Stayed here with my friends. The unit we got has two rooms, 2 bathroos, kitchen and living room. The rooms are nice and big. They clean the rooms everyday. We were able to save some money on our food because we were able to cook. The pool is small but clean.

The location is just a few minutes walk to the D*Mall and also the white beach station 2. The staff are friendly and helpful. The apartments have an equipped kitchen with utensils and crockery so if you wanted to cook and eat you'll be able to do so. Around the area are a lot of places to get food if you fancy eating out.
2 bathrooms, one on the ground and one on the second floor.

The resort is close to the beach. Super friendly staff and well priced. The 2 bedroom apartment we rented was spacious and cleaned well each day. I would definitely recommend this accommodation and will stay there again the next time I visit Borocay.

Background - stayed 3 nights during Chinese New Year in a STANDARD 2 bedroom with my 11 month old son, my cousin, my husband, and my grandmother.

Positives
Staff is pretty friendly
Extremely close to DMall
Beach is reachable

Negatives
The resort is surrounded by construction. If you have little children and you don't want to stress out about the potential falling debris or yanking them from oncoming tricycles, it's not an ideal location.

The photos are 100% representation of the place. I didn't realize how narrow the stairs would be. Since my grandmother is 76 years old, she had a hard time going up and down the stairs. It's not ideal for elderly if you don't have a downstairs bedroom (obviously).

Also, we had an army of ants attack my son's infant formula which sucked. Their kitchen countertops are black so you have to be very vigilant when bringing food into the apartment. It's quite common to have ants on bottom floor hotel buildings in Boracay, so be careful.

Last thing, since the "resort" is small, the bar is in the middle of everything, and the layout is pretty stupid because you can see directly into the rooms across from you. We had a couple lamps in the room that were completely broken and the upstairs bathroom doesn't have proper draining, so the floors were soaked around the toilet.

My husband got his laundry done-- they said it would arrive 12pm the next day, but it arrived at 7pm.

I'm giving it an average rating because it wasn't absolutely terrible, I just wouldn't go again.

Room Tip: I suggest you get a deluxe or maybe even a villa if you want more space. The standard rooms are ver...
