“A private haven within the madness!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

We stayed for 4 night in this hotel. Rooms were clean & spacious. Bed was comfortable. We had previously stayed Boracay Regency Beach Resort & Spa (which was beach front), Boracay Garden is connected right next to it, they are sister resorts.
Boracay Garden has beach access via a hallway, where a walk on the beach to D'Mall takes about 5mins. Boracay Garden doesn't look like much on the outside, though what it lacks on the outside, they make up for it on the inside, once inside, the grounds are surprising perfect. The 2 main pools are lined up appealingly & nicely designed with palm trees surrounding the pools, cabanas, heaps of pool deck chairs, a bridge over the main pool making it picturesque, there's a bar pool where you can swim up to which had a platform with chairs/tables above it. Between the two main pools there's the alfresco dining. We had breakfast there, where the selection on the buffet had local, American & asian selections. In terms of taste, it was good.
The hotel is still expanding, construction is still taking place, so every now & then there's the usual noise due to the construction.
In terms of design, the building had a classy feel, nice balcony, though too close together with your neighbour.
The room we had was on the 1st floor, we had a good view of the main pool, right next to the bar.
Only issue I had with this hotel was just the construction during our stay. Not a big deal & can be forgiven as I'm sure this hotel will look even more outstanding on completion, though construction sites can be an eye sore. Also not sure if the hotel lobby is planned for open planning (or may have seemed like it during our stay due to the construction), but check in & check out was like a sauna (sorry to compare to Boracay Regency Beach Resort & Spa, but they had airconditioning, & as always is pleasant when it's a scorcher).
Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed out stay, service was good, can't complain. Wifi charge in the rooms, your choice if per hour to 3 days.
Room service was also good, we requested a special order on a local Filipino dish that was not part of the menu, in which they perfected on taste & presentation.
The reason why I chose this hotel was my preference to be on station 2, ie. it's close to all the nightlife, shopping & eateries, but it's a private haven on it's own, away from the loud nightlife music & madness.
Yes, I'd consider re-visiting this hotel again next time when in Boracay.

On my first time in Boracay, I stayed in this hotel and enjoyed it a lot. Taking a dip in their pool after a swim in the beach is relaxing. I also enjoyed their food, as they have plenty of choices. Although parts of the hotel is under renovation it was still a great stay for me.. Hope to come back to this place again next time with my family...

My family and I, along with my father's officemates, arrived at around 11 am via the hotel's shuttle service. The rooms weren't ready, so we decided to explore the environs (D'Mall, D'Palengke, etc.). On
our way to the beach, we noticed there was a lot of construction work going on along the
private access path.

When we returned to the hotel at around 2 pm to check-in, we found out that our rooms weren't ready. We had to wait an additional hour only to find out that we'd been placed in a room (Room 387) DIRECTLY UNDERNEATH the construction site. We were extremely tired due to the heat, but we couldn't go to sleep because of the HAMMERING and the DRILLING. We requested for a new room and we were placed in Room 287, so obvioisly we could still hear the goddamn construction crew whirring and banging.

The hotel is beautiful. The pool area is breathtaking. Beds are clean, pillows are fluffy, and the bathroom is pristine, but what the hell was the management thinking scheduling renovation during peak season? Stupid.

We secured their transfer services from Caticlan to the resort and it was well organized. The resort has their exclusive port access and an impressive waiting lounge for guests. We were served a free drink and a disposable wet towel upon arrival at their lounge. They used a speed boat to transfer us from Caticlan to Boracay Island and a van was waiting at the Boracay port.

Upon arrival at the resort they served another welcome drink. Our check-in was smooth and in 5 minutes we headed to our rooms, check out was likewise fast. The only downside was the labyrinth of halls from the lobby to where our rooms were located as it took quite a while to reach our rooms. Not recommended for those who do not enjoy the long walks.

Rooms we got were Deluxe for quadruple sharing (room 361) and Grand for triple sharing (room 369). Room 361 has a tub and a shower, split type aircon, refrigerator, telephone, two double beds, cable TV, writing table and a coffee table with two chairs. Room 369 was more spacious, with one double and single beds, a shower, telephone, flat TV with cable, veranda with towel stand to dry clothes and towels and with outdoor seating that provides a view of the swimming pool and the tropical landscape near the pool and the restaurant. Our rooms were conveniently located near the beach though.

The resort has a good location. You can easily access the beach from one of the entrance. Public transport like tricycles is available at the back entrance in case you do not wish to walk. It is a 3-5 minute walk from D’ Talipapa (market place where you can likewise eat, buy food and shop for clothes/souvenirs) if you take the back entrance going to the left side and a bit longer if you access from the beachfront. It is a 5-10 minute walk from D’mall (another place for dining and shopping with more restaurants and stall choices) and where Automated Teller Machines (ATMs) are located.

Their staff is very attentive and courteous. The choices of food served in their restaurant (Garden Café) are delicious. The café has a nice ambiance.

We recommend this to families with young kids as they will surely enjoy the pool and beach and friends who like to enjoy the comforts of a decent resort after a long day.

Room Tip: Choose room 369 as it is more spacious and near the beach

When we arrive it was late already and we were so tired after 18 hours journey, but checked in was done in a breeze. The room was slightly old but big. We got the junior suite and it was superb. It was very quiet even though its in station 2. Access to the beach is just 3 minutes away and right in the middle station 2. Breakfast was a simple affair. And the staff was very friendly. Would definitely book this hotel again and recommend it to everybody who wanna come to boracay..

Room Tip: Get the pool side room. It's worth every penny.

I definitely have to say that I was over all very pleased with Boracay Garden Resort. The staff were wonderful and the service was exceptional.
I loved the dinner buffet. AND breakfast!!! What a great way to taste different foods for only about $10-$15 per night ($CDN). We ate dinner there every night because the service anywhere outside the Hotel was definitely NOT exceptional.
Loved the swim up bar. Towel deposit is a great idea.
The staff helped us get back to the airport very efficiently and since there was constant chaos surrounding us at all times, they made it a lot easier to get to and from places.
The ONLY problem that I had was my bed was too hard... Like way too hard. I had to order 4 extra comforters to soften it up. Room 237. Please note this for future. I'm also sure that the construction will subside somewhat soon, though it wasn't too bad.

Room Tip: Ask for a room by the pool/swim up bar. Or balcony!
