Situated away from the noise and bustle of White Beach the hotel is undergoing some renovation, but the willingness of Mr Elsa, the Manager, and his team, especially M J to give their guests a great service was a breath of fresh air. Good pool, nice gardens , good breakfast and excellent housekeeping and transport service. On two evenings we... More

Good room with private pool, however the pool is just for view and not for swim! You won't swim there as it is damn cold because there is a roof there. Also there are lots of fly dead inside the pool...I don't think you will swim there. The room is big enough and nice. Also the price is not too... More

We booked a room on a promo site about hotels and fell in love with the features we saw, what got are attentuon was the featured private pool, inside your room! The staff was accomodating, food is so-so, the room is big enough and they also provided my special request. One thing, the private pool in our room is not... More

Pros: - Staff were excellent and there appears to be a good in-house training program in place. - Views are awesome, both from rooms and from the outdoor areas around the pool - Staying up on the hill away from the main beach area provides a rest from the crowds, noise etc and also some cooling breezes - Puka beach...

Our room was great, used the private pool a lot. The main pools (3) were also nice but would benefit from some shady areas around them. The pool bar was in a state of disrepair and there was ugly scaffold around one building. I imagine it will look a lot nicer once renovations are complete but got the feeling work... More

Please, avoid this hotel. We booked a room with breakfast for 3 nights. Upon checkin we were told breakfast wouldn't be included despite our booking confirmation stating 'Free Breakfast'. We were charged for breakfast upon checkout and had to argue daily to get them to rectify their error. We witnessed several other check out arguments while waiting for the shuttle,... More

We emailed the hotel to arrange for airport transfer, to which they agreed and quoted us. Little did we know, they were "outsourcing" our business to a local company, who herds tourists from Kalibo airport to Boracay hotels like cattle. The hotel charged us more than twice the direct rate, making pure profit out of us, without adding any value... More

Great view however don't let the view fool you. Rooms poorly equipped there were no lamps no desks, bed was NOT comfortable the walls were not painted. Rooms felt empty. Service wasn't the best and the whole resort felt a little empty. However the view is very spectacular

OK - the bad news first: - The entire resort is a bit worn and tired. Nothing wrong - but night bright 'n' shiny. - The staff stick to the rules and that can be a little annoying, but I guess you can't blame them. I wouldn't want to lose MY job for allowing a guest something outside on management... More
