“I absolutely loved this hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

This review is long overdue. I absolutely loved this hotel. I was so excited about visiting this new property in Boracay. I knew it would be crazy busy because it was busy season for Boracay, but I couldn't wait to stay here.

The hotel is gorgeous and appears to be a small boutique place to stay. The staff were friendly, amazing and extremely quick and efficient. Our room was very clean and spacious with a lovely bed and nice clean bathroom.

The restaurant menu was reasonably priced for white beach. As one would expect from an Italian restaurant, there was a reasonable selection of wines and cocktails, however, we found the prices a bit expensive. But for a beach front accommodation, we expected as much.

Overall it was a great experience and we will return.

John

We stayed for 6 nights and everything was perfect!
this is the best hotel at Boracay.

I do not recommend you to stay at station1 where is far to the center.

Station 2 is the best location and District is the newest and best one.

We booked the hotel according to the comments from this web site. I highly recommend everybody to stay at this hotel.

rooms are very clean and everything is new.
If you want to have a good service than this is the right place.
Breakfast is nice , especially the omelettes!

they give the towel for the beach. Do not take too much clothes as there is less humidity and also baggage limit is 10 kgs per person at the airport.
weather at Boracay is nice.
they have a free transfer from Caticlan Airport.

Be sure that you will be satisfied!

I came here with my good friend for her birthday in January 2013. We stayed for 5 days. We had a 9hours delay due to the cancellation of our domestic flight frm Cebu to Caticlan. We informed the hotel of the cancellation and they assured us that they will have somebody & transport waiting for us in Caticlan. And true enough!!...When we arrived on Boracay and the hotel, despite the delay, seeing the beach, the hotel, we know it's all worth it. Checking in was smooth, we were welcome with fresh plum juice and the staffs are really friendly. Room were nice and clean and our beds are so comfortable. Our hotel is situated on Station 2 which is convenient to everywhere. Restaurants, pubs, mall, convenient store....
We did alot of activities in Boracay such as Helmet Dive (Hmm... i don't really fancy that, maybe cos i don't like to be underwater or touching the reef and its only 10mins of taking silly pics of us underwater)...we also did Helicopter ride around the island (that was amazing. Our first virgin ride), did the Pub Crawl (that was great, getting to know people, hopping from pub to pub) and also the sunset cruise. You can book all that beforehand at www.myboracayguide.com ...it is actually cheaper than booking with the person on the beach.
Truly sad when it was our last day...Boracay is still a paradise even if it is crowded with people now. So just close one eye and enjoy the moment. Definitely will come back for sure.

This hotel has the best location not only on Station 2 but out of all the stations!
It is located right on the beach, close to all the bars, restaurants, shops and most importantly D'Mall (only shopping centre on the island) where you can get anything.
Once in the hotel, you would not hear any noise from the street and would not believe you are in the centre of everything.
The hotel transfers to and from the airport worked very well and were complimentary (inc with room type booked).
The welcome was good, with a complimentary drink and cold towel (thank you to April and Genesis).
Loved the bar located on the top floor which has an amazing view of the beach and sunset (see profile pic) and their daily happy hour ( 5-7pm) .
Caruso restaurant is highly recommended for their pizzas.

My only disappointment was that i was expecting a view of the pool or beach from my room (as advertised for a Premier room) but we had a white wall.
I was shocked to discover that the rooms located right opposite the pool ( better view and location) are cheaper than the one i booked.
Therefore i would recommend the deluxe room instead.

Room Tip: Cheaper rooms have better view

Dear Ms. DanKa2004,

Warm greetings from The District Boracay, your contemporary boutique beachfront resort in Boracay!

Thank you so much for your positive review about the resort and for recommending us (including our bar and restaurant) to your fellow travelers here on Trip Advisor.

Choosing the location of the resort was of prime importance to the management when it was still being developed, and we couldn’t be happier that all our guests are now enjoying this convenience. We also try our best to ensure a comfortable stay for all our guests and it is heartwarming that our efforts are validated by your positive feedback.

Most of our Premier Rooms offer pool, resort or sea view from its private verandah, depending on the location. Nevertheless, we have taken note of your concern, and we will ensure that this kind of miscommunication will not recur to manage all guests’ expectations.

Again, thank you and we do hope you can visit us again sometime in the future!

My first trip to Boracay, and hit gold when we booked in The District.
Perfect location, right on the beach with an air conditioned foyer (a big plus), modern comfortable rooms with balconies and simply beautiful sea views , a little bit pricey but without the massive price tag of the higher end hotels.
Attentive, friendly staff. Efficient, escorted, no hassle transfers.
Hear they will soon have their own shuttle service.
Would without doubt choose to stay there again.

Room Tip: We liked ours on the 3rd floor, overlooking the pool with a nice sea view.

Stayed here last November 2012. The best for it's boutique amenities & location! You can still find the place serene even though it's in Station 2. Once you step out, that's where the action begins! Just a stone's throw away from D'Mall and famous restaurants. They even have a small lap pool where one can cool down after being in the sun the whole day! Enjoyed every minute of our stay & will definitely be back!

P.S. Hope they can have their own shuttle in the near future =)

Room Tip: Get the ground level rooms if you want to be near the pool area.
