My fiance and I decided to do a weekend get away last week. It has been 8 years since my last visit to Boracay and I know that there has been a lot of developments over the years. The last time I visited, I stayed in Station 2 as it is a comfortable place to be. We ended up in choosing Arwana Beach Resort as they had good feedbacks on this site apart from being in Station 3- which was more peaceful and away from the noises and action. We wanted to relax and preferred a little privacy. I would say that what relatively attracted us to choose this hotel was the "price deal" and the location. It was also important for me to have an internet connection (wifi) in the room since I had to work on a friday. I was glad that they had a good room internect connection and I was able to do my work. ( Though this was not clearly advertised by Agents )
Our reservation was all in place and were welcomed by charming and friendly reception. We were also served a big glass of iced tea while waiting for our room to be double checked. Our room was located on the side of the building which looked more like a path leading to the backside of the hotel. The room was clean, aircon was working, bathroom clean. I would say though that the bed was a bit damp and the pillow bit small and flat. You could hear from the room people passing by however, its not much of a nuisance that you can't deal with after a tiring day at the beach or a night out. They served very good breakfast and I would suggest going for the "confetti"or "harvest" breakfast which were really good. They also have pancakes and I would say that their Chicken Fajita was good. The hotel has been known for also serving "good mojitos",, unfortunately they were not able to buy some mint leaves so I didn't get to try it. All in all, I would say that we enjoyed our holiday and was able to rest. I would be glad to recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to have a relaxing weekend.
I would like to thank you and congratulate their staff Rod, Angie and Nono for being friendly and helpful to us.
Advantage: Excellent price, Quiet place to relax, good food, warm accommodation, excellent price.
