My girlfriend and I stayed at Island Jewel in July 2013. The hotel was very clean, the bed was comfortable and the staff made our stay very pleasurable. It is located just off white beach (perhaps 1 minute walking), but down on the far end, so it is a bit of a trek to where the main restaurants and bars are. But this was just some extra incentive to go for some beach walks! The road the Island Jewel is on is closed to cars / motorcycles / trikes, which makes it very quiet but means you have to walk about 2 minutes with your luggage down the road. We highly recommend Island Jewel!

This is a well oiled and smooth running operation with great facilities and extremely professional staff. I kept on pinching myself to make sure I really was still in the Philippines which has the worst hospitality standards of any country in the region.

Stayed for 3 nights and the room was spacious, very well kept and spotlessly clean. short stroll to the beach and plenty of places to dine in the area.

but it is the staff that really make the place and in particular the front office manager. My God what a rarity that man is in the Philippines. Whatever the owners are paying him they should double it overnight and tie him to a long term contract or equity sharing arrangement. You sir are worth more than you weight in gold and I salute you for giving levels of service and hospitality that are so rare in the Philippines as to be almost non existent.

Sadly for us we turned up a few days later without a booking and they were full and we were forced to go elsewhere. as predicted that was a let down.

Will always stay here on our return visits to Boracay from now on

It was a very pleasant experience in going to boracay, more so in staying to island jewel inn. Staff and management was very courteous, and sensitive to the needs of their clients and was very friendly. The hotel itself was very clean and very suitable for the budget. Definetly I would recommend island jewel inn to everyone who would go to boracay. Again, thank you so much, GOD BLESS and more power to the hotel and tourism industry :-)

We chose here from Trip Advisor, all very good reviews.
We were very last minute,ring one day fly the next,and Edgar was extremely helpful.
Beach literally 1 minute away,nice restaurants and bars.
Our was a corner one, so I think bigger than others. Comfortable bed,hot water,air on,very clean and cleaned daily. The staff wre brilliant. Had breakfast 1 morning,very good, but thereafter went to the beach for breakfast.
Can only say that all was first class and Station 3 is the place to stay.
Always let than do the airport transfer, it was the best organized that I have had.
We look forward to going back

Room Tip: We had a corner room, none have a sea outlook, no problem, and all quiet..

i stayed here for 3 nights and overall i am very pleased with my experience. The staff are very friendly, the rooms are clean and comfortable and the prices are not too higj. The only drawback is the location. it is at the very end of bost station 3, and it doesnt feel very safe to reach there in the late evening

The fabulous family atmosphere at the Island Jewel made our Boracay visit even more enjoyable. The staff were relaxed and friendly, the rooms comfortable and clean, with a location just yards from my favourite section of sandy beach at boat station 3. Free wifi, safes and TV's in each of our rooms plus excellent service adds up to great value for money, an easy recommendation from me and the hope of a return visit soon. Thanks to Edgar and all the team ... especially for the barbeque :-)

We stayed here not too long ago for our honeymoon and it was GREAT. Can't say anything else but the cleanliness and friendliness of staff are superb. They directed us to the places and restaurants that are excellent in the area. theres no view but it doesnt matter. Coming back definitely!
