“Poor at best”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2014 via mobile

Very disappointed by this below average resort.
No hot water in the room, room not cleaned for three days & then had to ask, breakfast food cold (not heated at all) & very poor quality.
I recommend that people look elsewhere, I'm sure for the money spent you can get a lot better.
I will not becoming back.

Our stay here was unexpected. We were to supposed to stay in another hotel that turned out to be a disaster--misrepresentation, and horrible customer service. Luckily, Boracay Hotel Resort was just along the same street.

We were happy to get a Villa that was in promo at 50% a night. The Villa type has two rooms and a cooking/sala area good for 6 people.

The staff are really nice and provides good service. The breakfast is also a nice treat from 6 to 10am.

The beach is about 5 minutes walk and the McDonald's is about 2 minutes.

Room Tip: Avoid the bar or pool fronts since these can get noisy at times.

Pretty poor hotel. Crap staff. Horrible breakfast. Rubbish service. Good location. Non existent wifi. Pool bar really loud with no one even sat there. Probably a great hotel for 'locals' not so good for travellers/backpackers

We were looking for a Family Room on Boracay to accommodate a Family of 4. This is almost impossible to find on the Island as most hotels on the Island consider Children over 6 years of age to be Adults, requiring their own room. This is not safe and works out to be expensive paying for 2 separate rooms. Boracay Holiday Resort allowed us to have 4 in a room, we had 2 Queen Beds in a decent sized room and Buffett Breakfast for 4 People. An extra Visitor only cost us 260 pesos ($6USD) for Breakfast. The location was closer to the beach than we thought. Mc Donalds is just down the Street and its close to walk to D'Mall and D'Talipapa Market. The Pool was spotlessly Clean with Life Guard on duty, and the Pool was huge in size, with a Water Slide. My Kids loved it. The Buffet Breakfast was a bit lacking some days but great other days, depending on what you like to eat. For the Price we paid, we were more that satisfied.

We stayed here as our dragon boat team cannot all be accommodated in the other hotel. Not a bad choice as this was also near where the race was held.

Our room was on the second floor with a common balcony overlooking the pool and the bar. The room is large and clean. We used the balcony to dry our clothes.

Air-conditioning unit is a bit noisy. Water pressure in the bathroom shower is quite good.

You can easily can a staff whenever you need one. There is a security guard at the entrance of the hotel.

Room Tip: If you'll stay near the pool, get a high-floor room to minimize noise. Otherwise, a room on the...

Not the best resort to stay in. Rooms are somehow expensive but service is VERY POOR. Staffs are very INEFFICIENT specially KEVIN of the front desk. Rooms are not well maintained.

Avoid this hotel if you want your Boracay experience to be more pleasant and memorable!

I'm from Australia and went for a holiday to Philippines last april 2013 and booked in for 13 days of stay at Boracay Holiday Resort . On arrival we put the deposit of php 20,000 ( php40,000+ total amount to be paid) I was 4 months pregnant that time. Unfortunately, on the 3rd day of stay i had a pregnancy bleeding. The manager recommended to see a local OB /Gyn doctor but no one was available that time so we decided to leave the hotel and went back to Iloilo City and was admitted to St Paul's Hospital. And thanks God my baby was fine. Anyway, while we were still in Boracay Holiday Resort we asked for the refund of our money and they said they could not give back the money because it's the company policy. They even insist that supposed to be we were required, to pay the full amount. For 3 days???? Never again...So guys, just to remind you NEVER give the full amount to them. Coz you will be sorry and they will be very thankful if something goes wrong. Never again we book in to this hotel...
