Located on Station 3, this hotel provided us an excellent service. A bit new but the staffs are very well accomodating and they know what they do. Nice, clean and large room for a cheap price compared to others. Only few rooms and around 3-5 story hotel, that's why they can attend and serve their customers perfectly. And what we... More

I visited the Sands hotel as part of a graduation trip for my university, so we had a group of 18. The staff greeted us kindly with drinks and were especially tending to our needs. During my stay at the Sands Hotel, I would say that the hotel has a nice swimming pool indoors, with tables near. I could easily... More

I didn't stay in this hotel but have frequented their spa. I would highly recommend this. The Spa is located in the basement so you are away from the hustle and bustle along the beach. The massage area is separated by curtains. It's dark downstairs with dimmed lighting to allow relaxation. The therapist are professional and great! After the massage,... More

We stayed for four nights and had a wonderful time. The restaurant (only breakfast) had good foods and the staff were all amazing. The improvement area is the location(I know it could not be). It's a bit too far away to the S2. The spa was great, but I got a cold. The rooms was great and clean.

This hotel is in a great location (as almost all hotels in Boracay are) and it is clean but that's about all it has going for it. The staff are rude and have zero care about customer service. We stayed recently over the busy Christmas / New Year period and the manager was away on holiday - I think that... More

We stayed here for a week. My Husband and one year old baby Pros- next to two amazing places to eat- a cafe and burger place. Amazing location, literally on the sand. Room is very standard but ok. Cons- customer service is terrible on all accounts. There are 8 beach chairs for the whole hotel and they let people who... More

We dined here for dinner and it was a relatively quiet night. Our food took a while to be served however they provided some sort of chips (crisps) which we demolished twice in the meantime.The food was presented well, tasted fantastic, and was light and fresh. This is certainly in my Top 5 of places to eat in Boracay; and... More

Stayed here for a few nights on the week of Halloween. "Pwede na" as we say in Tagalog. If you have more money to shed, stay somewhere else. Otherwise, set yourself for disappointment. This place is meant for people who are simply looking for somewhere to crash after long day with easy beach access and without sacrificing modern comfort. The... More

I really enjoyed staying at this hotel. As another reviewer mentioned - the deluxe rooms are made up of twin beds, so we simply had them pushed together - which is what hundreds of other hotels do too. It is located at station 3 so a much quieter area but we still found many activities and bars around here. The... More

Great hotel found in station 3! That's the hotel. Beach in front of the hotel is not as beautiful as that found in stations 1 and 2. The hotel is quite far from Station 2. It is advisable to take a tricycle going to other stations. Hotel room is spacious, has great bed and sheets, TV, hot and cold shower... More
