Our Filipino friend recommend this place, we stayed here for four nights during nye and were very happy with it.
The location is very good, at station one which has the best beach of Boracay, no rocks or seaweed, no jelly fish.
The deluxe room 101 we stayed at is spacious, with large bathroom, and a small Zen style yard, with a small clothe rack you can hang washed clothe. It's very small though, you can't really do anything there but mostly for scenic purpose.
The rain shower is very nice with full size glass window which you can see the zen style yard, as well as the doors to the yard. the hotel provides full amenities, good quality towels and beddings.
There is a iPod dock in the room but we didn't use it. The led tv is small but with good channels like discovery, Jack TV- the local HBO, I think, AXN n other major western channel.
Hotel provide free shuttle service return from dmall and the seafood market-talipapa, all you need to do is book in advance, it's air conditioned van sits about 10 ppl. They also provide airport service to the caticlan airport, 700per person, incl private van from hotel to the port, private boat-the hotel has its own boat, to the other side, then private van from port to caticlan airport- which is just 3 minutes walk anyway. It's very comfortable and total stress free, they will carry your luggage the whole trip.
The hotel bar Lo seems to be very popular even to guests from other hotels, the happy hour is from 1pm to 6 pm, buy one free one, the cocktails are very good, especially the Mojito, must try.
Hotel provide free beach towels, and they are sooo soft! I thinks it's even better than the bathroom towels. The staff record every towels you take, and for some reason, they even know if u r taking it to the hotel beach or out, if you take it out- for boat trip etc, u have to sigh it, lost or stained, 500 each towel.
All the staff are well trained and with good manner, especially the front desk, they have answers to all my questions. I was very impressed when they called me the night befor our departure and ask what we'd like for our breakfast the next day- because we need to leave the hotel at 5:50am, we can choose to have it in the restaurant/ room/take away. I chose take away, by the time we leave, the food was all packed and they packed everything I ordered, good amount too, this is the first hotel ive stayed offer this service.
Now here is something we wish is as good as the other parts...
The breakfast selection is limited, and didn't really change during our four nights stay.
The deluxe rooms at the ground floor are right next to the lobby walkway which can be noisy at early morning when people are checking In and leaving, also at late night when people come back from night outing, the sound proof is not good enought to block these noises.
The water temperature of the shower is not very stable, during the peak shower time- at night or noon, it's only warm but not hot.
The pillows are warn out, very uncomfortable.
The wifi is very unstable, it was down most of time while we were there, even when we use the landline. We have to use the wifi from next door, Sur or Ambassador.
The massage service is okay, 500 per hr for most of massages.
There are only 16sun beds on the beach which are always taken during the days we stayed here, most ppl will go there in the early morning and leave a towel there to "reserve" the sunbed, and ther are only two sun bed next to the pool. We are always hunting for sun beds.
In general, this is a good choice of hotel to stay in Boracay, they also have a suite which is ocean view, with a private pool, I bet it is amazing.
If you are a light sleeper, try not to book the rooms at ground floor. However, the family room at g...
