My wife and I came to Boracay for the first time for a 3 day stay during our 3 week visit to the Philipines, (also a first).
We stayed for 2 nights at another place the other side of the main road in station 3,1 minute walk from the beach.
Whilst wandering along the beach on the second day, we saw Crystal Sands and my wife fell in love with the location and expressed a wish that she would love to come back to Boracay and stay in the hotel as it had such a great view and was perfectly located for the beach, shops (D'Mall) and restaurants, plus all the activities I would want to do are situated a very short walk in either direction along the beach.
I decided to try to give her our last day and night at the hotel and enquired if the room was available. It was and we were even allowed to bring our belongings much earlier than the 2pm check in time.
From the moment we arrived, we were made so welcome, nothing was too much trouble for the staff who are the most friendly people we have encountered so far.
Our room was on the ground floor on the beach front with a private patio meaning we could eat and drink whilst enjoying the spectacular views.
We loved it so much, I negotiated another 2 nights stay totalling a 3 days and nights stay departing early on the 4th day.
We cannot fault anything about our stay here, the staff were fantastic, the food so good we did not eat anywhere else and the rates quite reasonable. The room was clean and cool and service was exceptional.
We have 1 day and night still to go before we return to Manila, if a room was available, we would stay till the end of our holiday! Guess what, I have booked and paid a deposit for a 3 week stay next year!!!
Stay here, you won't be disappointed!
