This resort was beautiful, clean, relaxing, and comfortable. It's about a 2 minute walk away from the beach;away from the hustle and bustle, but close enough so that you can walk to the beach and the surrounding shops. The exterior of the resort is lush with fruit trees and beautiful flowers. I'm not high maintenance when I travel. I normally just settle for a clean place to eat and sleep between excursions. However, the beauty of this resort was not lost on me.
My family and I stayed here January 2011, and have nothing but positive experiences from Boracay tropics. The staff are friendly, knowledgeable, and accomodating. The rooms are kept cool, clean and fresh. Our package included an all-inclusive meal plan which includes a breakfast buffet in the morning, and a-la-carte meals for lunch and dinner. Even though there are so many nearby eateries, I recommend going to the restaurant for dinner at least once or twice. Delicious. Fresh seafood, fresh fruit, my favourite was the sinigang (shrimp in tamarind soup) and the mango cucumber slush that they serve.
As noted, the hotel is about a 3 minute walk from the beach. While many people prefer beachfront hotels, I actually prefered the walk. Again, it's close enough so that if you're in the mood for beach, or for party, it's convenient to get there. However, since we were traveling with older people as well, they got peace and quiet at night when they needed it.
Although we didn't get to do many excursions, we ended up going to Crystal Cove (which I believe we booked through the hotel). We really loved this. It's an excursion that includes a little bit of up-hill hiking, fresh coconut water, cave spellunking, and snorkeling. Things like banana boat, ziplining, and RVing can also be booked there.
