Happiest stay in Boracay ever because in my opinion, when one goes to the beach, one should stay at the beach and not in one's swanky room:) Crystal Sand's rooms are very basic. The great thing it has going for it roomwise is that the aircon works well and the rooms are clean. Friendly staff. Foodwise, it's ok and affordable. Locationwise, it's a few meters from D'Mall where a lot of restos and a grocery store are. Now the BEST thing about Crystal Sand is the only thing I would go back to Boracay for: its beachfront. In the middle of all the chaos of human traffic of tourists and vendors alike that make up the Boracay of today is this few precious square meters of quiet, untouched space amazingly a mere few steps from our room that remind me of Boracay circa 1980s... hmmm, I have nothing more to add...except...stay there.
