I wrote a scathing review last time and Im pleased to say this stay was very pleasurable. We stayed in the same 3 bedroom villa that we used a few years ago and the maintenance issues we experienced then were no longer present. In fact it looks like the villa has been rennovated. The villas we stayed in are timeshare allocated. The main reason for staying here is that as timeshare owners its the only choice with Interval International.
Just beware there is a lot of contruction and rennovation happening at the resort so this may not be appealing to some.
The villa was large with very large rooms and contained 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms,4 toilets, a fully equiped kitchen,4 televisions, and 3 private balconies overlooking the world class golf course.
We went during a very busy Chinese New Year period so we were very grateful that we could escape the crowds to the seclusion and quiet of our apartment at night. The hotel offers a shuttle service between DMall and Fairways generally every hour up to 10pm. During our stay as it was so busy the shuttle operated every half hour. There a a few sari sari stores at the entrance where you can obtain essential if you didnt want to take the shuttle to DMall.
The resort is large so you need to take a shuttle to get around. There are 2 infinity pools with 1 purported to be the largest in Boracay. There is also a private beach. Buffet breakfast has limited choices and I had breakfast there only once as a result.I preferred to dine on Boracay Beach where the choices were more varied. We had several lunches and dinners at the resort which had both international and filipino choices. I thought the restaurant served quite good food.All the staff were great and an asset to the resort.
I would definitely stay here again.
