“Amazing location and fantastic staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2014

The District is an amazing place to stay, not only is it in a fantastic location on the beach, the staff always go that extra mile to accommodate you and they are all extremely friendly and caring. The hotel is very clean and the king bed was super comfortable. My boyfriend and I loved The District and would recommended it to everyone. It is in a perfect location for bars, clubs and restaurants as well as D*mall.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2014

We stayed here at the end of January 2014. We booked three rooms and all were perfect and exactly what we expected. The location is the most perfect part of Station 2 with a very large beachfront. Sunbeds and towels were abundant and they had sand toys and life jackets for kids which could be borrowed which was fantastic.

Breakfast at the Vigan Grill was great--both service and quality of food. I loved that each day there were two specials that could be ordered. The fruit was great--ripe and the mangoes pre-cut for simple eating.

The bar on top left a lot to be desired. View is great but many of the mixed drinks are made downstairs so the wait time is long. When we ordered drinks by the pool, service was very prompt.

All of the staff (both front and back of house) were really nice with special notice to Edgar and Joel.

Only issue we had was with booking--not loving the Manila booking office. Would likely book though a travel site next time rather than deal with the Manila office directly.

The District Boracay is a less than 2 year-old modern contemporary hotel.
Boracay Station 2 is well known for all the happening pubs/restaurants/massage so the location is perfect for us! Plus it's just a stone's throw away from D'mall (only shopping mall on the island where you can get practically anything) We stayed on the second floor which overlooked the swimming pool from our balcony. 2 queen sized beds which was clean and spacious enough for the 3 of us. They are also very well equipped with the amenities!
Not to mention, their service was exceptional! Despite the large group of 20+, check-in was fast and swift. John, who was one of the staff there did a full explanation on the room and hotel with all smiles. The District is probably the best hotel at Boracay Station 2!

Eye Catching, beautiful and a pleasure to stay in. The District Boracay definitely a top pick for me. Located conveniently right at the clear blue waters of the beach, amongst the bustling shop fronts. Making Food, sun and fun easily accessible.

In addition, the hotel was clean, new and insect free! The service staff was extremely attentive and polite, promptly attending to our every need.

Will surely recommend this hotel and would love to stay in The District Boracay again!

Room Tip: Spacious beds, good for sharing.

Best location! In the heart of boat station 2! The centre of the island! Such wonderful friendly staff who will do anything to help you! Restaurant food delicious! Accomodation clean and so comfortable! Best holiday ever!

Room Tip: If you are a couple choose to upgrade your room. They are quieter and have a better view.

Ranked #6 out of the hotels in Boracay, this resort definitely lives up to the reputation with impeccable service and I have been recommending it to friends who will be heading there soon. Amazing location, the beach is literally at your doorstep so you can be assured of the captivating view. One of the best breakfast spreads, with a different specialty dish every morning. Highly recommended.

The service was awesome! Warm and friendly staffs will also look so delighted to serve u. I love my room its very spacious and the bed is extremely comfortable. The best thing about it is its facing the pool so its a stone throw away from my doorstep. The location of the hotel is excellent, easy access to many places.
