It was my first time to visit boracay. So we found a good deal and booked a flight via tiger airways. Next step was to look for a hotel accomodation. We were advised to book at Boracay Courtyard. Upon reading reviews and looking at the posted pics, we got dismayed and decided not to book there. We searched the net on hotels that would cater to our projected budget. We came across the hotel named Isla del mar. We looked at the reviews and pictures at trip asvisor. The reviews were great and the rooms looked just fine. So we texted the posted number to inquire. Kuya Noli emailed the room rates. The rates were within our budget. But our problem was the transfer from kalibo and vice versa. So we talked to a travel agent within our area and she gave us a good deal with free breakfast and hotel transfers included. So we decided to book with the agent because we thought it was a good deal. After paying in full, we called Kuya Noli to confirm our said booking. He quickly informed us that they weren't affiliated with any travel agent and that booking is done directly with them. Good thing Kuya Noli informed us about this. We then cancelled our booking with the agent and luckily got our refund unscathed. We booked directly with the hotel and bank transferred our downpayment. If not for Kuya Noli's advise, we would've been outsmarted by the agent. Upon arrival at Boracay, we were received warmly by the staff and accompanied/assisted all the way to the hotel. The keys to the room was given. The room and hotel looked and felt the same way as it was described in the net. We were given good deals for our chosen beach activities. The staff really treated us as family. Overall, the stay with them was great and we're looking forward on booking with them again in the future. Thank you! Thanks again Kuya Noli for the heads up!
