Been going to Boracay for 10 years straight. I'd like to think of myself as a Boracay expert in my own right. First of all, every hotel is different. Always manage your expectations. Each Boracay hotel caters to different kinds of travelers. The Tides is perfect for: Young adults wanting to party and have a good time It's a party... More

This is our 2nd time staying at The Tides. Love the refreshing towelettes to help you freshen up plus the welcome drinks. Upon check in you are also given the password for free wifi and coupons for complimentary cocktail drinks at their bar (Solstice). A day before our scheduled check-in, we walked in and booked their Exceptional Room (2 Queen... More

I'm normally not very picky when it comes to hotels, but i do put a huge weight on value for money. It doesn't have to be fancy as long as the basics are there. For The Tides, however, i was extremely disappointed because even basic things such as having strong water in the shower wasn't covered. The water flowing from... More

I have stayed in Tides in May 2013. Better late than never I thought, and hence the review. I am 100% satisfied with my stay at Tides. I booked a standard room and it is totally worth the money i paid. The roof deck offers a great view with the pool, cabanas and Solstice Bar. The complimentary spa treatment is... More

I gaged over that sink each time I brushed my teeth. Heavy black mold growing in the shower and around sink drain (thick enough to... More

The location is definitely perfect! The room is clean, staffs are friendly and helpful. The bathroom setup is weird. The shower curtain covers only one side of the bathtub. Unlike typical bathtubs in hotels, their bathtub is a stand-alone unit. So, whenever one takes shower, the water splashes out on the side of the bathtub without the shower curtain. Later... More

We booked an "Exceptional" Room (though nothing about it is really exceptional) through AGODA and specifically asked for One Large Bed in our room since we are celebrating our Anniversary. It was such a disappointment that the bell service escorted us to a Room with 2 Queen Beds!!! We then called up the FO to request to transfer in a... More

Hotel is at the central location very close to the beach and shops and nightlife. Staff was very nice BUT my prob was the badly design bathroom. It offers NO privacy and the toilet is separate from the bathtub/shower the bathroom is designed like a closet with holes so you can hear your friends fart and pee. Because of this... More
