Not our first time to Boracay (two friends) and we knew we didn't want to share a bedroom, so chose Sandcastles based on the size of the two bed apartment and it's location. We took a pre arranged transfer to the hotel so had no trouble knowing which alley to walk down from the road as the transfer staff knew... More

I'm at the resort right now, writing this review because I'm so disappointed. This is a 3 star resort charging 5 star prices. I've lived and travelled in SE Asia for 10 years now and cannot believe how overpriced this place is. In Thailand or Vietnam, you'd have a private plunge pool villa for the same price, with rustic chic... More

These apartments are located directly on the beachfront, less than 10 minutes walking from the best nightlife spots of the islands, and 5 minutes from the mall. Our apartment was spacious and luminous, with a fully equipped kitchen. The place is cleaned everyday and you have complimentary mattresses and lounge chairs on the beach during your stay.

There is something wrong with this review. #1. We do not issue pre-paid vouchers. #2. In 2008 Nov we had lost all our native bungalows to a nasty forcible entry committed by our then landlady with the sub-lessees, who turned out to have an Australian Mafia connection. So, in 2014 we did not have any bungalows at all -- what... More
