“In the middle of nowhere!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2011

I originally booked this room for 5 nights and to move to a beachfront hotel when my friends got there. I wanted somewhere a little more secluded and safe. I was welcomed by a bunch of builders renovating the main building and constructing a spa outhouse with the noise from 7am to 5pm and therefore stopping any use of the pool. Not a great start. My room as spacious as it was, had no telephone, dirty sheets with stains i can only describe as ointment/oil marks, smelly toilet and a shower that offered cold or tepid water...struggling to pump out any water. I checked out the next day to go and stay at the Surfside Resort which was great. When i told the girl about the sheets she offered no apology and just shrugged leaving me to believe that this is a common problem. I fail to believe how anyone would think this was an equivalent to a 5*, the only 5* service they offered was a shuttle service out of the place.

Our family loved this place. We are Brits so loved the owner Helen and the manager who are also Brits. Thye were friendly but not intrussive, helpful and friendly. Our room over looked the pool with it's own terrace.
Breakfast was very good but had to pay for the cooked one. Didn't eat at the hotel so can't comment on the food. Too much choice down in town to stay at the hotel.
The grounds of the hotel were beautifully maintained with a lovely large pool.
Room clean and the beds comfortable. The bathrooms had a selection of bath goods.
The is a shuttle service into to town and down to the port which is free. It was nice to be in quite environment but being accessible to DMall. Thanks you for a great and memorable stay!

This is a beautiful resort, it feels like home from the great staff to the whole setting. My room walked out into a cozy patio where I could sit and lounge with the garden and swimming pool just in front of me. Not that far from the beach, this resort provides peace and quiet from the chaos at the beach. This may be the perfect place to hold a wedding as well.

Just came back from a weekend with my friends at Boracay Hills Hotel. The hotel is excellent value for money and is located in the hills of Boracay Island and about a few minutes van ride to the beach. This hotel is good in a lot of ways, clean rooms, good value for money, safe and very quiet location. If you're wanting to spend your holidays in relative peace and quiet away from the maddening crowd at the beach, this is definitely the place to stay.

The rooms are large and very clean, each with a terrace or balcony overlooking a beautiful garden and a well maintained pool. I noticed the service from all staff is above & beyond what they need to do. Housekeeping noticed on the first night that I had rolled a blanket under my pillow to make it higher, the next time i went back from the beach the following evening, she brought me an extra pillow without having to be asked.

From the moment we arrived at the hotel, we were treated as family. There was nothing that they would not do for us. The people who run the hotel treat you like guests in their home and their main concern is that you are happy at the hotel. The adorable staff and the easygoing and helpful manager will do everything they can to make your stay special.

This hotel may be a 3 plus star on the travel books, But for the service and attention they provide, this is definitely 5 star hotel in my book. This is a great hotel worth a higher star rating.

Room Tip: Choose the rooms by the pool
