We were fortunate enough to stumble upon the Panorama Resort while looking for a reasonably priced places to stay in the heart of the action in Boracay. The location is ideal; right off the D-Mall (which is where the majority of shops and restaurants are in Station 2) and only steps from the Station 2 beach. The hotel is not on the beach but it's only about a 100 meter walk to the beach.

The hotel is relatively small, I'd guess there's maybe 15 rooms in the whole place but the staff is incredibly friendly and the room was exactly what we were looking for in that it was clean, cold, and spacious. I believe we stayed in the Superior Room with A/C and two full sized (double) beds. There was more than enough room for 3 guys, along with a nicely sized bathroom that included a nice storage area. The room was cleaned daily and I didn't see a single insect the entire stay.

Beyond the rooms, on the second floor, there's a nice common area with free-free high speed internet and two refrigerators to store your beer, ice, food, etc. We often hung out here in the evenings to check some emails, play some music, and have easy access to the fridge. :) There's also a little kitchenette on the first floor but we never used it, so I can't comment on it.

Jim and Emma, the hotel proprietors, are incredibly friendly and were nice enough to invite our crew up to their unit on the 3rd floor for drinks and conversation. We really appreciated the hospitality and it was nice getting to know a couple of great people.

On our last night there, the power went out in Boracay but 5 minutes later, the hotel's generator kicked in and we were back in business. I don't know how often the power going out happens but it's refreshing to know there's a generator there in case it does!

All in all, the hotel is no frills but clean and reasonably priced in a fantastic location; we could have not been more pleased in our stay.

Ok,

I found this place to be about a 90 second walk from the beach, and the room rate was very affordable. It is definitely for the budget traveler. The staff is friendly and the rooms are comfortable. Hot water for the showers, and there a lobby where you can use your laptop for high speed internet at no additional charge. So, those were the high points.

Now, for the low points. The community refrigerator was not clean (I found a dead insect in the side tray). The staff would not clean the room unless you ASKED them to....just leaving the keys with them is not a strong enough clue. The room had quite a few ants roaming about, but they were not interested in biting you.....just trying your food. Depending on which room you got, you were forced to enjoy the booming music from a nearby night club, as there was not a building on the one side of the hotel to block the sound at night.

I could stay there again......just won't use the fridge. But, I wouldn't necessarily recommend this one to a friend....as there are so many small "resorts" on the Island, you will be able to find another at a comparable price that will be a step up.
