“Beyond expectations”
Reviewed July 8, 2012

BEST. BORACAY. VACATION. EVER.

Thanks to Shore Time Hotel for making it possible. From the airport terminal to the hotel (and back), we really had a wonderful time! The reviews are correct -- the superb customer service is the first thing that you will notice. The staff are courteous and friendly.

The hotel facilities may be limited (no pool, for example), but the rooms are clean and well-designed. Who needs the pool anyway if the beach is right across the road! All rooms are air-conditioned and have wireless Internet connection. The rooms that we had were loft types with one huge bed on each floor. Each floor also has one huge flat screen TV with cable which means there are 2 TVs in our room. Less fighting on the remote, haha! One room is good enough for 4 persons to stay comfortably (we were 6 so we needed 2 rooms). The bathrooms are clean and comfortable. Hot and cold water is available. Basic toiletries are provided.

You can also enjoy the sun and beach at the Obama restaurant right across the hotel. Order a glass of fruit shake or cocktail while soaking up the sun.

This hotel is highly recommended for couples, family, and friends. I'm definitely suggesting this to my friends. :-)

Room Tip: Ask for the room with a view of the beach. The room has two balconies -- one each on every floor. Th...

We got the penthouse last June 2012. The hotel room, location and service were extremely great.

Room Tip: Ask for a land tour. It was very cheap and enjoyed it a lot.

We were at Shoretime last Feb 2012 and stayed in the penthouse. Nice bed, clean and soft linens and pillows. It's not beachfront, but almost, just cross the street, to Obama Grill, and you're there, the white beach of Boracay! Shoretime guests can use the beach chairs in front of Obama Grill since S/T and O/G are sisters (they have the same owner). But what stands out about this hotel is their excellent service. Staff are very helpful, from the time they met us at Caticlan airport til our return flight, they were really amazing. My friends got sunburned and the staff gave us an ointment and ice-water to ease the pain. There are many nice hotels in Boracay, but not all nice hotels have great service like Shoretime. To the Shoretime staff and management, you're doing a great job, keep it up!

Room Tip: If you can, choose the penthouse, more spacious. Two queen beds, 1 at the loft. Really nice.

We booked a trip to Boracay with less than 24 hours notice and found this via a recommendation from a neighboring hotel that was fully booked. What a nice surprise. We got the upstairs/downstairs with 2 balconies room that slept 5. The room was very clean, great A/C, super clean bathroom with amenities, comfortable beds and great high end fixtures like Grohe faucets, flat screens and more. The upstairs is great for parents and kids stay downstaors. This is not on the beach but across the street. Breakfast was included and you can eat it at the restaurant Obama Grill which is on the beach. Great value, very clean and if you don't mind not being on the beach, stay here.

we knew what to expect because we,d viewed the room a few day,s previous, we had booked the pent house which had two bedrooms on two levels, 1st had double bed, bathroom (shower no tub) lovely soft towells and nice toilettries alittle on the small side, refridgerator, tv, plenty of hanging space for you clothes A/C and a lovely huge verander with table/chairs and parasol,,, upstairs bedroom had double bed, tv,A/C storage space and a small balcony with 2 chairs. A/C was great so easy to use and quite,
S/T is,nt on the beach but just across the road which we must say is pretty bizzy with trikes and a fair amount of noise which did,nt bother us but could be a problem for light sleepers!!
breakfast was basic which could be taken in the S/T cafe or over the road in obama,s which supplied the loungers on the beach just pick towells from reception,
wifi connection in our room was poor but fine on floor level, (we found this a problem throughout boracay) there was 2 computors for use for a small fee,
tranfer to the ferry was so well organized, we did,nt have to do a thing the S/T rep did everything from paying the fare, seeing to our laugage and taking rightup to the checkin desk at the airport,, fantastic service :))
overall S/T was a great place to spend 5nts, so glad we did,nt cut our stay short by going back to aysa suites, the staff were always helpful and pleasant

We stayed in the hotel from March 27 to the 31st due to a friend's wedding in Boracay. The place is very near the church where the wedding took place and it is also near the venue for the reception. What is so great about it would not be the location, it is more of the service and the accommodation. The room is clean and spacious, I got a loft-style room and it was perfect for my Mom, my son and me :)

The staff were very friendly they make us feel that they are happy to serve us and made sure that we have everything we need. We were fetched from Kalibo airport by the hotel coordinator (Raffy) and the weather condition at that time was not very good. I did not have to worry about getting a porter or carrying our things or tickets for the ferry, everything was taken cared of. It was the same when we had to check out and leave, I did not have to worry about anything.

I absolutely love everything about Shore Time and would not think of booking anywhere else when we go back to Boracay :)

Thank you ShoreTime staff, it was absolutely wonderful!

Room Tip: a good place for people traveling with kids :)

Stayed here with a friend in March 2012, 3d/2n. Found their hotel info just via a search on the internet. Emailed them for details and couldn't believe the inexpensive package rates they offered - accomodation, breakfasts and transfers all about 40% less than the rates offered by other Station 1 hotels.

Though, granted, their hotel isn't situated right on the beachfront (but their restaurant, Obama Grill is, where breakfasts may be served), the hotel itself is just a couple metres back crossing the main road. Other perks certainly outweighed their location, such as the hotel is recently built, so the interiors are very new and modern - it's really just like one big home, with many rooms and 3 floors!

I particularly liked the paintings/photographs of beach landscapes posted in their corridors, also in our hotel room. Breakfast is served either at the cafe at the first floor, or at Obama Grill on the beachfront, where you can people watch or just stare off at the calming sea.

PROS:
-Location (beside Willy's, Nigi Nigi etc) and value for money
-Quick, painless, right-on-the-dot transfers. The hotel has its own car for transporting guests to Cagban(?) port, also one available at Caticlan to transport guests to airport (ask about their transfer rates)
-Modern, homey amenities
-Wifi routers provided at each floor (yes, free wifi!) so no problem with slow, intermittent signals in the room
-Partner restaurant Obama Grill right across, also serves ala carte meals for lunch and dinner, also has a bar
-10% discount for hotel guests when dining at the restaurant
-Just a few metres away from Willy's rock

CONS:
-Relaxing on the beach beds at the Obama Grill wasn't as relaxing, because the resto plays (sometimes loud, dance) music for non-hotel guests dining there. Not a problem for some guests, perhaps, but we would've liked to enjoy more quiet and listen to the waves.
-Some staff appear very junior, not as confident/professional when dealing with our enquiries, although they can deliver the service required. To be expected of course, for a non-hotel chain type of place.
-At one point there seemed to be too many (relaxed) restaurant wait staff, and even after advising one of them we were hotel guests, they still forgot to punch in our 10% meal discount on our bill.

For couples or elderly visitors who'd like more privacy, I don't recommend this place. Crossing the main road (albeit very short) to the hotel premises may not be very safe at night for older guests, or families with small children.

Despite the minor faults, overall I'd say it's a great find, especially for families or friends on a budget, but still want to enjoy the better part of the beach, Station 1.

Room Tip: Construction of the hotel extension (just beside it) is ongoing. Ask for rooms facing opposite side...
