Nice/Budget Accomodation for 5-7 adult

Hi, we are going to boracay on Sept. 2-4, 2005. Just want to get some advise where can we stay. We are 7 adults and we prefer a Nice/Budget beach front accomodation somewhere in station 2. Hope you can help us. Thank you.

You are unlikely to find nice budget beach-front in that area. Does it have to be station 2? Most of the budget places are south of station 3. There are a few cheap places around station 2, but they are located down alley-ways or slip-roads, not on the beach. Check out Isla Gecko, Lions Den, GP's and Frendz. One nice place offering good low-season rates is El Centro. Don't go through an agent, at this time of year you get the best rate if you call in person, or just walk in. There's no shortage of acommodation in September, so you don't need to book in advance. Avoid the commissioners who will attempt to grab you at the airport/jetty port. They will direct you to a hotel, but you'll end up paying more to cover their commission!

The only problem with friends is that the area is a bit noisy, and there are lots of mozzies. This is the case with many of the budget resorts though.

Take a look at Dave's Straw Hat Inn (www.davesstrawhatinn.com) - it's probably the best budget accomodation available in Boracay.

Thanks sirenna, for accomodating our request. One of us going to boracay on Sept. 2 inquire about the family room of La Luna Court, somewhere in Station 2. Can I ask you any feedback about the place? Hoping for your reply. Thank you again.

La Luna is not a bad place - a bit basic as far as facilities go, bit it's only a few meters away from the beach and several nice bars & restaurants.
