We spent 2 wonderful weeks on Boracay during xmas and new year 2012/2013. Our family of 5 stayed at the Blue Mango Inn. We were greeted at Caticlan by one of the Blue mango staff and we just followed him. This was great because getting from the airport to the island hotel is a little tricky first time round. You have to take a motorized tricycle, then a boat, then a small bus, and then walk maybe 5 minutes. A word of advise is travel light! We checked into our room and then chilled for 2 weeks. Vaughn and Blue Mango family gave us great service, our rooms was always clean the food was good, especially the Breakfast. My daughters lived on waffles and pancakes for 2 weeks, the mango pancakes are excellent. My son who is a little fussy even managed to get special food. The staff bought us mango smoothies etc on the beach! Nothing beats lying on a bambu lounger under a thatched umbrella with your favorite book, fresh mango juice and an ocean view.
Another major plus is the location. Its on the beach and away from the crowds. There are some good bars and restaurants a few doors down and also the fantastic yasuragi spa.
The day we left we had leave at 5am. Vaughan was awake to say bye and even speed of into the dark on his motorbike to find some tricycles (the mini bus that was booked did not show, must have forgotten to wake up). Anyway everything worked out and we made our flight UNFORTUNATELY! We will without a doubt be returning to Boracay and the Blue Mango Inn.
