My family love this place. It was our second time around. We love how far it is from the noisy side of the island. How nice it is to go out of our room and look at the kite surfers do their thing. We like feeling the wind on our faces and the vibe around the place. Our room was...

I have just stayed here last night, after a couple deceptions on this island. This Hotel is next to the center ( 9 min walking) but far from the noisy. It is located in front of the bulabog beach, just in front. Our duplex has 2 floors, the decoration is ethnic made with a really good sensitivity. The sofa and...

I have to admit I was skeptical initially when booking this property and I still think that it was slightly overpriced but overall it was a great escape from the madness of the white beach area...the location was awesome and the morning sunrise was nothing less than majestic...staff was accommodating with any request we had and seemed to genuinely want...

Beware! Photos on Booking.com not from the actual property, but the hotel next door! Downright deceitful. There is NO pool, even though several photos on the Booking.com site show a pool. Also the hammocks photo, not this property, but the property next door! Upon arrival no toiletries, no toilet paper, no hangers in the room. Long hairs on bedsheets under...

I stayed at Boracay Gems for the 3 time on Bulabog beach. This trip I stayed in the Jade Apartment. All rooms are spacious and provided a comfortable stay. The staff were friendly and a night porter is on hand 24 hrs a day - helpful when arriving late and departing in the early hours. The hotel could be improved...

Stayed in Diamond room for 3 nights as Jade was booked. It was a spacious room, but everything was on 3 floors. Entrance is on the ground, living room and bathroom on the second, and bedroom and balcony on the second. Not recommended for those with weak knees :-p Personally, I liked it for the peace and quiet and its...

Boracay Gems is located in Bulabog Beach--opposite to the White Beach, which is pretty quiet and serene compared to the party side of the island. It has a beach front which has a hammock and lawn chairs to laze under the sun. Sunrise view is simply amazing. If you are looking for a change from Boracay's night scene, stay in...

We stayed at Bolabog beach instead of the main white beach for a change to avoid the peak season crowd, so we picked Boracay Gems for it's perfect location. It is right at the beachfront and only few mins walk d'mall and main white beach. The rooms are clean, with native yet modern furnishings. We stayed at Sapphire and Jade...
