This is my second time visiting Boracay and also my second time staying here in Le Soleil. It just meant that I was very contented with my first stay here that I didn't even bother looking for another hotel for my second trip.Thing is, things change.
Amenities / Beach front
First, the pool needs renovation. It looks and feels old. Although it looks okay, once you get closer, you can see the deterioration of it.
Their beach front was also okay. Because it is habagat season, there were wind breakers in front and that is understandable because they usually put that to protect the property from strongs winds and waves. If you dont want such an unsightly view, dont visit during June - Sept.
They have security guard to watch over your stuff while you swim at the beach. That's the biggest plus point for me.
Second, the rooms (I stayed in the old wing, second floor) might also need renovations soon. The furniture looks old. but the bed is still superb which is an important factor. The bathroom lacks hooks and needs renovation. Other than that, I like the plastic outdoor furniture in the veranda as it is comfortable even though it's made of plastic.
Disregarding my comments above, I would've given this hotel resort a 5 start for their service and location. They do provide towels for you to bring to the pool or beach. Just ask from the guard on duty by the entrance, inform your room number and youre done! You can also bring it directly to your room. Same goes with the pool if you want to borrow.
The front desk staff are very helpful friendly and polite. They also were kind enough to accommodate requests. The waiters in the cafe were very friendly and prompt as well!
Food - Breakfast
For the breakfast food, there were some viands that was changed daily but some were staples like rice, pancakes, congee etc. On our 4 day stay, we had 3 breakfasts. My favorite viands were tapa, garlic rice (get additional garlic for your garlic rice from the congee condiments), adobo, corned beef. Honestly, the food is not something to rave about but it's good enough to make you full and enjoy some Filipino food.
Food - Dinner
We had 2 dinner buffets at Le Soleil. We arrived quite late on our first dinner and the food was already cold. The rice was very hard and as a rice eater, we didn't enjoy the meal right from the very start. The viands were cold as well and almost empty. The pasta was good though but nothing special. Their iced tea was bland. Too much water mixed maybe.
I'd be honest with you. Although they have good service and great location, this is my last time staying here in Le Soleil. I didn't like how the room felt and the washroom didn't quite match my expectations compared from my first stay here. Main reason for this being my last is because I want to try out other resorts too. I'll be trying out 2 Seasons or Discovery Shores/ Shangrila Boracay next time.
I'll be putting more information on my blog at www.cheftonio.com
