There was no refrigerator, the water was tepid at best. The family room is the same size as the deluxe room but is twice the price. In fact from what we were able to see all the rooms are the same pri. Peak season rates are ridiculous. Our parents were staying at Monaco Suites, a luxury resort on the other side of the island, and they paid the same amount for their accomodations as they did for ours. Ridiculous.
And what makes it all the more unforgiveable is that this hotel offers NO REFUNDS even if you attempt to cancel your booking right after you make it, even months in advance of your scheduled stay. This is makes it seem like a scam and essentially, a robbery. God forbid you should accidentally make a booking; you won't be able to do anything about it.
Ok yes, the staff were very nice people, no doubt about that. They were courteous and did what they could to make our stay pleasant, but that's what they get paid to do. We will not be returning or recommending that people stay here. If the location was properly advertised, the rates were proportional to the accomodations, and they offered refunds LIKE THEY SHOULD, then we would have nothing to complain about. You can't call this place luxury, and you can't call the rooms suite.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Blue Veranda Suites is a 7-room Santorini-inspired resort located in one of the world's most beautiful beaches - Boracay, Philippines. Our foreign and local visitors just love where we are, a mere 30 steps to the whitest, finest sands and clearest waters on Earth and at the hub of the Island's activities. Hundreds of restaurants, bars, souvenir shops, massage and tattoo parlors and the seafood market, where one can buy fresh catch and have it cooked at nearby kitchenettes, are but a stone's throw way. Our location simply adds an edge of adventure and convenience to all who choose to stay with us. We at the Veranda also like to do things differently. We set up the property as a themed resort conducive to a warm, cozy, sunny, experience as we believe in treating our guests to a very unique and delightful vacation. Our blue and white motif adorned with sheer curtains where the sun peeks through during early morning breakfasts speak for it. Guests are pampered with jars of fruity shampoos, conditioners, body wash, assortment of body scrubs and lotions - just great after a hot day out in the beaches. Our spacious rooms accommodate a maximum of 6 persons - just perfect for families. Our staffs are eager to assist guests' needs as if they never left home. Moreover, the Resort manager personally handles all communication be it through the internet or telephone calls and makes sure to attend to all guests' special requests 24/7. With us, we promise a truly pleasant experience for everyone. ... more less
