My husband and I stayed at the Boracay Garden Resort for a week in September this year. This is our second trip to Boracay and the first time we were there, we stayed at the Two Seasons. We opted for Boracay Garden Resort this time jjust because we wanted to try other places.
We wanted to have a relaxing week away from Hong Kong before our wedding and we couldn't have chosen a better place! The staff are friendly and very attentive. The room that we were in (I believe it was deluxe) was quite spacious and overlooks the pool area. There's an extra space in there with a table and the wardrobe but it would definitely have been better if they had just converted that to a tiny balcony instead. Would serve as a perfect place for direct access to the pool as well as lounging area. Since we booked for a week in there, the front desk was kind enough to give us FREE access to Wi-Fi the whole time we were there.
Food was OK-- good selection on breakfast buffet but the salad bar could be better. We understand that there's lots of Koreans in there and we have nothing against kimchi but they should have another kind of salad or more options on fruit (that week the only fruit we saw was either watermelon, pineapple or banana). As for dinner -- not the best place at all. We were so knackered one time that we decided to stay at the hotel and go for the dinner buffet. Sad selection, really. Hubby got sick the next day :(
One other tiny problem we encountered was when they ran out of towels for the guests. And it happened twice while we were there! Considering the size and reputation of the resort, they shouldn't ever run out of towels and ask the guests to wait just because "no one did the laundry the other night".
Aside from this, everything went well at the resort. Awesome place because it's so close to the beach. Their pools are lovely and i'm pretty sure we spent a lot more time by the pool than the beach.
If we ever go back to Boracay (which I'm sure we will), we'll definitely stay at this resort again.
