Very personal and friendly services. Good quality and tasty food. Great guides and day trips. Fantastic location for the price, right on the beach, walking distance to all the actions. Great choice if you don;t required a pool and big resorts amenities.

My girlfriend and I went to Boracay for 6 days last week and choose WaterColors - with no regrets at all. I´m traveling a lot and I almost haven´t experienced such a warm welcoming as at WaterColors. All of the staff were super nice, likeable and extremely supportive. The location is nice as you are within 10-15 minutes walking distance... More

Lovely small boutique hotel. Staff are super friendly and helpful. Food is great. Very reasonable prices given the quality level. Room was pretty small but very clean and the sea view was lovely. Very safe (had a security guard at night). Highly recommend. Kevin B.

Nemo found his home away from home in the Philippines. This amazing little BB has one of the best beach views in all of Boracay. Wake up early to an outstanding breakfast and you could find yourself alone on the beautiful white sand beach.

A rather different review, as I was looking to review the restaurant in the front. On our last of 6 nights, we chose to come here and have drinks and to watch the sunset, as it simply had the best views! Downstairs it simply has the best view of the sunset over Willy's rock. So instead of standing with the... More
