Big bins to fit all the empty bottles of water you usually have nowhere to put !
Breakfast - Usual buffet breakfast eggs station fruit etc
Sink outside the bathroom I thought was strange but ended up being handy for 2 people.
Staff friendly & helpful and good location close to but not right on the beach
Good rooftop bar/swimming pool
Uncomfortable bed - hence the 3/5 rating.
Wifi & hot water is a bit hit and miss but kind of expect that on an island.
I would recommend paying the airport to hotel transfers if it's your first time to Boracay. May seem expensive but if you do it on your own you need to get from airport to port then boat to island port then port to beach. At each turn there seems to be a fee to pay for something and I saw a few westerners arguing as to why they had to keep paying people for something thinking they were being ripped off. So to save time & hassle it's Peso's well spent.
