“The best sunrise seat @ Boracay!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2009

I just came back from my 3 weeks Asia holiday with my boyfriend. Ralph's place is the place we stayed during the 6 days in Boracay, and it is definately the place that I will recommended to all my friend as it display the best nature beauty of Boracay without the heavy $$ tag.
Location: Ralph's place is situated at Bolablog beach (not sure the spelling), but only about 15 - 20 mins walk to the main beach or about 5 mins tricycle ride. However if people don't like stair and likely to get really really drunk...it might not the best place as the place is high up in a small slope hill side so there is about 80 steps that you need to over come...but ladies..if you are a bit tipsy you can always ask your man to carry you up the stairs...give them a chance to show themselve:p (j/k)
Service: The place is family owned and run by a Swiss couple so the simple europen style breakfast each morning is definately a good change for all the grill seafoods that we have consumed throughout the day. As we went during the low season the services there is definately 5 stars...with laundary service available.
Cleanest: Cleaning is pretty much every day and we are definately impressed with the cleanest.
Last but not least is the breath taking view....due to its high advantage...and the open design of the navie hub house, we can enjoy the magnificant sunrise from your bed!!! I like to thanks Ralph's place as it made a perfect fullstop in our Asia trip!

Very simply brilliant!!! Staff consists of Raplh and his family... It is completly no frills!!! A perfectly clean room, big bed with mosquito net, daily cleaning and the best view probably on the island. Set atop Bulabog beach, you wake up to the sight of Kites flying below you. I recommend it to anyone looking for calm and quite time, especially all you surf and kite fans.
