“Great place for peaceful vacation”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2009

Friendly, helpful and informal staff and management.

Nice spacious room and comfortable beds, beautiful setting and garden.

Good quiet location on the island, away from the crowds, a ca 15 min walk to the beach.

For those looking for that personal touch, look no further than Paradise Bay Beach & Watersport Resort for your accommodation needs. My wife and I place a premium on the service we receive , and the Hotel Manager, Danny and his team could not have been more attentive - without exception they were friendly, professional and charming, ensuring that our holiday was thoroughly enjoyable and entertaining. Sure, the resort may be a short distance from White Beach, but the quiet, and picturesque location more than makes up for it . ..there was nothing more relaxing than watching the bancas and paraws scuttling across the bay as we downed our poolside drinks (reasonably priced too I may add!). If you're looking for value, cleanliness and a bit of personality, I have no hesitation in commending Paradise Bay Resort and Watersport Resort to you.

Myself and 2 friends stayed in two standard rooms at the paradise bay in november 2007. When we arrived we were welcomed by the manager with a drink and a few friendly tips on how to make our stay more memorable. The rooms were very spacious and clean, and the location absolutely beautiful. The hotel isnt located on white beach but there is a hotel bus with a driver who will take you anywhere on the island whenever you like. The food was great and the facilities good. The best thing about the hotel however was the staff, the manager at the time was incredibly friendly and helpful, far more so than any other hotel we have ever been to, and the staff there were always willing to help with anything, and always witha big smile. We spent 2 months in south east asia and the paradise bay was definately a highlight.

We were 4 Italian friends and we spent 1 week at Paradise Bay Resort.
I felt at home as soon as i stepped in...the welcome drink, priceless tips about getting around, some very useful free services, like the free internet access or the hotel driver available all day long...it's really true that overall quality is matter of details care!
The resort is nicely positioned, the landscape is awesome and quiteness and relax are guaranteed...nice garden!

We were on 3 rooms directly facing the pool, on the ground floor...very nice and functional rooms, even with a small kitchen setup...service and staff was absolutely friendly, efficient and professional...so everything contributed to enjoy our stay!

Last but not least, the excellent manager (German but speaking an excellent "rhodesian" english) and his parthner Judith, very good people, making you feel as an old friend in matter of minutes!

So the overall comment is more than positive...a place to book again and again for future Boracay adventures!

We were two families, a group of 14adults and 2kids--in boracay for post wedding celebrations/ bonding with my sister's new hubby's family (whew@#!) and our very own family reunion..


ATMOSPHERE:
- The resort was a perfect paradise!
- The views were awesome..accurate shots from their websites..
-Beautiful verandas/garden, swimming pool, picturesque even at night..palm trees and hammock were amazing!
- The bar at the pool was great!
- Very helpful and friendly staff..All smiles considering we were a big group with parents and children who can get grumpy at times.
- Food was great. Breakfast specially the bacon was crispylicious!
- Mr. H (manager) was very accommodating, friendly, funny, responsible, and an awesome manager. He was very approachable, smart, and has a great understanding of the filipino culture irregardless of his foreign background. Some may misjudge him but his leadership is one that is realistic, honest, and well balanced. He does the best he can and shares his good knowledge wholeheartedly. Thank you Sir for making our stay enjoyable and well worth it!
-Mixed crowd..families, couples,singles..quiet retreat for nature lovers, they have playground, and other activities (pool table, dart board) available.

TRANSPO:
-shuttle service is free at the hotel.Tricycles are available everywhere.10-20 pesos per head.
-a walk to the white beach (depending on your pace it can be 10-30mins)..shortcuts available too at the back of the hotel! I like the exercise and how I can have a glimpse of the lifestyle in Boracay...not just the beach but also the talipapas and locals..
-We came from Kalibo airport which is farther (2hours drive) to Caticlan. Highly recommendable to go straight to Caticlan to avoid the 2hr bus ride. Caticlan is a more expensive airticket but minus the 2hour bus/van transfer fees.Specially if you have a short stay.

ACCOMMODATIONS+AMENITIES:
-awesome kitchen staff..very accommodating..Couldn't ask for any better service..Its worth the 10-15mins wait bec. of the quality of the food and smiles from the waitresses.
-Best German beer ever!Bar was great!
-BBq was delicious..breakfast was always perfect. You can wakeup at 6am or 4pm no problem..
-Rooms were very clean..No major issues/disturbances..Public areas were spic and span..
-The management and staff will do everything to make your stay most enjoyable and refreshing..


Wish you all the best in your hunt for the best getaway!

And Thanks to all the staff and management of Paradise Bay! Mr. "H" all the best to you!

  • Liked — Overall atmosphere. Serenity. View. Swimming pool by the beach. Mr. H and staff.
  • Disliked — Can't swim at the beach fronting the hotel bec. of the reef. But very close to walk on other side no problem!

After reading some of the other reviews, I would have to agree that the management at Paradise Bay is a bit of a problem. 'H' I believe his name is, always makes you feel like he is doing a favor for you. He even recommended that we eat this 'special steak' from Australia, which was quite pricey. We reluctantly ordered it for dinner. All we got was a simple cooked steak with some steamed vegetables. It was a huge disappointment after he talked about how great it is and how he is so surprised that the price is so cheap.

I sensed some problems between either the guests and management or the management and employees. Regardless, it was not a comfortable situation and we were happy to be out of there in our short 2 day stay.

Our air conditioner was so loud that we couldn't sleep with it on. The lights in the room were so dim that we couldn't read past sunset.That being said, the view was quite nice and the balcony was enjoyable.

It took a long time to get down to the White Beach. It is a bit of an annoyance, so we would try to only go to the Beach one time in a day and stay there until night.

JR the bartender was very friendly and a good man. Aside from him, I felt like most people that worked there, including the management were scheming to get more money out of us by getting us to go to their 'friends' for boat tours, and scuba diving.

Overall, I would recommend staying at a different hotel.
