We made the booking thru booking.com and got a good deal. The hotel is in station 2. It is not beach front but it was a 5 minute walk to the beach. It is conveniently located near D' Palengke and D'Mall. Another good thing about the hotel is it has water dispensers stationed in the hallways. Our room was clean...

This place is hidden in one of the alleys of Borrocay. It is very central and you are on the beach within a second! The owners are very friendly and the rooms clean! Dont expect a great view. but do expect a nice clean place for a reasonable price with great smiles of the staff!!!

We stayed for 3 night in this wonderfully located hotel. White Beach is a 3 minute walk from this location. The staff were friendly and attentive throughout. The hotel is clean and the chilled water coolers are a nice touch. Our 4 person room was slightly small for 4 adults consideringbthe price we paid.

At first it was a little hard to find the hotel. But there is government people working around the main streets. So they will show you the way. The hotel was overall clean, and the staff was very kind.
