“Clean and friendly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013

Excellent hotel which we stumbled upon by pure accident. Reasonable prices, close to the beach, tucked away in the quiet part of White Beach (station 3). Very friendly staff always happy to help with any queries. Rooms were spacious and clean, towels changed every other day. One of the highlights of our stay in Boracay.

Room Tip: Best rooms are on the first and second floors - with wonderful views from the balcony.

Great place to spend you vacation if you are not extremly picky and can't afford Shangri La. Not a 5-star resort, but we couldn't really find any consequential negative sides of this place.

The location as for me - seemed to be one of the best on the White beach. It is not crouded as station 1, but the beach is just great. Its only a minute walk from the doors of the hotel to the beach, and the staff was always kind enough to prepare beachbeds and towels for us in advance. Guess couldn't be better.

Room was nice, very clean, with a balcony. More than enough space, had everything you need in a vacation.

The only downsides I can't think about are:

- no breakfast included, but there is Coco Loco right in front, and Blue Mango next door, both serving good food.

- Little bit far away from Dmall and all good restaraunts. About 20 minute walk to Dmall with all the shops and good dining places. On the other hand, thats the reason why its quite and calm.

- The shower wasn't really hot, it was kinda warm and water pressure was a little bit low.

But all these things were not what we came to Borocay for - what really mattered for us was great beach, cosy clean room and wonerful staff of the hotel, who were always very helpful and kind for us.

In general, we had a great vacation and great stay at this place. For the money you pay, you get just a wonderful place to stay. When I was choosing the place to stay, I was ready to pay twice more, but didn't really see a reason to spend more for a hotel when we were absolutely satisfied with Blue Coral.

Blue Coral is at the best part of White Beach in Boracay. South of Station 3 right next to Coco Loco Bar! The spacious rooms are of European Standard (Swiss Management!) with a nice bathroom, aircon, cabletv, safetybox, wifi. It's clean and only 10 steps to the most beautiful beach in the world! I got an offseason discount price of 35$/night, which is by far the best value you can get right on the white beach for a room of that quality. I checked quite a few places but nothing came even near... The place has 6 rooms only and no restaurant, but plenty of bars/restaurant in the neighbourhood...
Best time ever!!!

We stayed at the "Deluxe Room" at this place for two weeks...got a reeeeally good deal. This place is really awesome. I can't think of any downside to staying at this place except:
1) Breakfast is not included - BUT there are 2 restaurants right beside it that serve great food for a cheap price. Honestly, you're paying such a good deal for this place, you shouldn't even care about getting free breakfast.
2) You have to walk about 10-15 minutes to the party/busy area where all the major establishments are. We actually prefered it this way - less people traffic, less vendor harassment, no stress, more ME time.

Things we loved:
1) It's literally a couple of seconds walk away from the beach... just put on your swimsuit and walk out!
2) Staff were so efficient and friendly. Once they see you walk out of that room in the morning, they clean it right away. It's spic and span, sand-free, new towels, new bedsheets and they even organised our clutter. Also, one of our lamps' light bulb blew and upon telling them, they were in our room to check it out and fix the problem within minutes.
3) It's nice and quiet =)
4) Hot shower, cable TV, A.C., mini fridge, electric fan, flush toilet- all these things worked no problem! And we got a big closet too: plenty of space to put our stuff in.
5) There's a big bench (we're really bad at clutter) that we made use of...a lot, a big table, a nice mirror, and small bedside tables on both sides of the bed... I guess I'm trying to say that there's more than enough space for your things and the room itself is pretty big.

We can't think of anything else that we liked about this place...but it definitely exceeded our expectations. Highly recommended!
