“Golfing Only”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

While this is my first time in Boracay, i wanted to play golf in what I was told was a beautiful golf course and challenging. To my suprise i was disapointed in the staff as they weren't very interested when I was asking questions about the course and cost. They had no information but
Only the cost. Second the pro-shop wasn't stocked with the proper equipment or staff to help you.
After about a half hour we decided not to play and left. For being the only golf course on boracay you would think they would be better prepared. I have golfed all over the world, from India to China and most of the great courses in the United States. This ranks below average in my opinion of golf courses.

“Expensive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

As far as golfing is concerned, this was a little expensive. Because it was an extremely windy day, we opted out of playing. Shoes and clubs can be hired. Fantastic location on the beach. Nice resort located on site. No driving range. Swimming pools. Pro shop was not well stocked though we did buy a gold shirt and towel but they were not cheap!

The only golf course in the island with 18holes, very nice view as you walk around the range. Very clean and comfortable.

“Not Worth It”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

We stayed in this hotel and expected a nice white private beach for my family, but, like the hotel the beach was disappointing. It is not properly maintained with facilities in the same standards. No proper service available, like food and drinks, which was only available after walking to 3 flights of stairs.
