“Stayed here twice”
Reviewed November 27, 2012

The fact we have stayed here twice must say something, first time as a couple, the next with a party of 13. It's far enough from the crowds to have a quiet swim and relax when needed, then all you need is a short walk down the beach and to the crowds to get something to eat, drink etc:
Station 1 definetly the nicest part of the island.

Forget the prices on the laminated signs that are displayed around the island, the guy who books the activities at this hotel was beyond helpul and with his contacts always got us the very best prices possible.
Rooms were air conditioned and cool and especially the 4 Deluxe suites offer good sized balcony views of the beach.

The Breakfast menu was pretty basic but the coffee was always nice and a great restuarant with accoustic entertainment is right on the sand next door.

Unfortunetly the Residencia was booked out now we're heading to Boracay a 3rd time so we had no choice but to go elsewhere or we would have been here yet again.

Room Tip: Deluxe Rooms 1st or 2nd floor with balcony views

Ideally situated close to Station 1 and just a stroll away from the White Beach, a tranquil and refreshing atmosphere; the best thing about residencia is its pristine beachfront. you have a whole spread of white sand and peaceful area. there are two nice open-air relaxing huts and a couple of wooden swings.

We went to bora with my whole family and stayed to residencia. First, the location is excellent,  it is a beachfront hotel.  Since it is located in station 1 it has a wide shore, and very quiet, not so crowded part of the beach.  You can lounge to their beach chairs without so many people passing by infront of you. Perfect place to relax. The hotel itself is good., clean rooms as well as the bathroom. The free breakfast is average, it is  serve by plate not buffet, or only because we stayed there during low season.  The staffs are kind and nice. The only disadvantage is that it is too far from the station 2 where most of the restos and bar are located. I suggest to walk when going to station 2 then take a tricycle when going back to the hotel.

RB's superior rooms offered simple accommodation at a quite reasonable rate in Station 1, Boracay Island.

The rooms and the hotel were always clean. Most of all, the hotel offered the needed peace and quite Station 2 guests would have difficulty getting.

Breakfast choices were rather limited. If food is what you look for, RB is not the place for it. Better to go to Station 2 for lunch and dinner which is what we actually did.

I definitely will consider staying again in RB for my next visit to Boracay!

My children loves this place... with the beach just a few tumble away... my children surely enjoyed playing with the sands. Though, we didnt get much swimming since the water was freezingly cold during our stay, we enjoyed island hopping and walking at the beach. Will surely book in this hotel again when we come back this summer.

We stayed at Residencia for 4 nights in mid January. It is located in station 1. The beach area in station 1 is by far the best since it is not overly crowded and there are no boats around the area. Station 2 is at the heart of the town, so expect it to be busy and noisy all the time. Residencia is about 10-15 minutes walk to station 2. The down side was that it was too hot to walk from station 1 to 2 during the hours of 11am-4pm as the sun was sizzling. You could take a tricycle, but I prefer walking to get my exercise.

The rooms at Residencia were clean and standard. No blow dryer though. The people running the place were very friendly and accommodating. Turons and banana cue were sold at a certain time of the day, which was great! There was a breakfast buffet served until 10am. Lunch and dinner can be prepared only if you request it in advance. Otherwise, we walked to station 2 to experience the night life and the restaurants.

A few down sides: We saw a huge cockroach, which is typical since our room was located on the ground floor, and some problems with the shower pressure. We had staff fix it right away for us. Wifi couldn't be accessed unless you were outside where breakfast was served. But was not too much of a bid deal since we were there to relax and enjoy the beach.

We booked the ATV tour and the boating tour + helmet diving excursion at Residencia. All tours were great and we had a guide with us from Residencia to assist us on our boating and helmet diving trip!

Overall great time in Boracay! The resort was not big, however it felt like I was at home. It was not as expensive too unlike other resorts in Station 1.

There were 21 of us when we stayed here last month. The trip was part of our reunion with family from the US and Canada. The location was awesome! We mostly hung out at the cabana overlooking the spectacular view of the pristine white powder like sands and blue/green color of the ocean. It wasn't a large hotel which I was glad for although it's in the vicinity of Discovery Shores and the Ambassador. It was just the right venue for memorable family gatherings and a relaxing seaside escape. We had a birthday celebration as well and they really accommodated us from the paluto (cooking) to the party set up. You can take a stroll along the beach from station 1 to 2 going to the mall (called D'mall) and the market (called D'talipapa) with an abundance of restaurants, bars and souvenir shops. Or you can take a short tricycle ride which is readily available by the entrance of the hotel. Breakfast buffet was great. It doesn't have a lot of amenities or frills like a gym or pool. But the ocean was so inviting that you really don't need the pool. If you're looking for a place to stay with your family in station 1 which is affordably priced compared to nearby lodging and just want a relaxing retreat with a homey setting, then this is the place. Staff was great and we definitely had a great stay here.
