Everything was perfect on this trip, the communication with manager Paul beforehand, who helped me organize diving, transports, spas, a birthday party, everything that we needed help with basically. All staff were fantastic and incredibly helpful, spoke english and were efficient and always smiling. Great breakfast and good cocktails as well.
Transport to white Beach or Shangri La was provided, and Paul had fantastic recommendations for restaurants and water sports. A highly recommended hotel, fantastic views of the sunset from our Villa, and a well kept secret: the house beach Balinghai just down the hill, which is basically empty as opposed to White Beach. There is also a little bar and restaurant down there.

Room Tip: Ask Paul for the rooms with best views, but in general there are terraces and rooftops everywhere wi...

Having just returned from Boracay I can seriously recommend staying at the Argonauta Boracay. Our villa was fantastic, the location and views were near perfect. The staff were just amazing and willing to arrange and help out with all of our requests including the shuttle to "run" us into White Beach whenever we liked but also to help arrange a birthday party for one of our friends we were travelling with. It is a true gem!!

As we all know, Boracay has rapidly developed and the tourists that flock to the island during the peak season has been overwhelming. Some may argue the island is no longer the relaxing getaway from the city buzz as it too is becoming hugely populated during holidays.

This is what I like about Aragonauta Boracay, it treats you to a different Boracay experience as peace and serenity is guaranteed. Then you may experience the Island hustle and bustle at any time should you decide to go down the shore. By staying in Aragonauta Boracay, you get the best of both worlds in your Boracay experience. Truly a vacation in a vacation :)

I stayed here in January 2012, my review is a little late but very valid. I am an avid vacation enthusiast and I found the Argonauta Boracay Resort to be near perfect. The location is above and apart from the loud, busy lifestyle of white beach, Boracay. Strategically placed, the hotel provides some of the most beautiful sunsets I have ever seen, and also access to a small beach/cove whichcontained some exotic coral, fish and other wildlife. The spacious rooms are very comfortable, clean and inviting. As well as some of the best showers around! (you'll understand after travelling a long time) Staff is very acccomodating and the food was delicious! The GM certainly knows his way around the island and can be very informative for what kind of activities a guest may seek. It is an incredible experience and over all the best vacation I have had to date. A DEFINITE RECOMMENDATION!

Staying at the Argonauta Boracay with my partner was definitely an experience to remember. At first we were skeptical because of the limited beach access, but as soon as we arrived, the view and serene environment won us over. I definitely recommend Argonauta place for couples and families, although there are also singular rooms to stay in… The view is stunning and the long distance from White Beach is no problem with the efficient transportation system they have. If you are looking for a quiet place to relax, this is the place to go.

The staff are always happy to attend to you, with a smile on their faces. There were lots of activities arranged by the hotel for us, such as a trip to a pristine beach which was only 5 minutes away by shuttle. There we were given a picnic basket and some towels and pillows, it was absolutely marvelous!

Room Tip: The general manager Paul made us feel very at home the moment we arrived, speak to him if you have a...

The Argonauta Boracay is perched on a hillside with spectacular views of the sea below. It's a real haven for rest and relaxation, not really found elsewhere on the island. If you want to party, stay on White Beach. If you want to find a retreat from your hectic life in the city, stay at the Argonauta Boracay. The main guesthouse was formerly a large private home, so the feel at the Argonauta is more like a comfortable family compound than a sprawling hotel complex. The rooms seem to vary in size and furnishings, but the apartments are very spacious and afford more great views from their semi-private verandas. You'll have plenty of places to sit and watch the fantastic sunsets every night! When you're not doing that, the affable and highly capable GM Paul can recommend other activities around the island -- from picnics on beautiful Puka Beach to sailing around the island on the Penelope. You won't be bored and you'll be so happy you chose the Argonauta Boracay.

Room Tip: Stay closer to the main guesthouse if you don't like stairs -- although the apartments can be qu...
