My family visited for 3 days after Christmas. Boracay during this time of year is very crowded and so if crowds are not your thing, avoid visiting this island during this time of year. We also arrived the day after a severe storm and so the beaches were polluted with debris. Nonetheless, the island is beautiful with much to see and do. We explored a fair amount and rode Segways which is a great way to get around. This property has its own private beach which is convenient. Not as nice as White Beach and the boardwalk there but nowhere near as crowded either. The property in general is very nice but like many properties in the Philippines, attention to the finer details is lacking, both with the facility and with the service. The property seems dated and in need of repair or renovation. The food served in the restaurants was only so-so. We preferred to eat elsewhere when possible. Service was very hit and miss (mostly miss). Staff was pleasant enough but not very knowledgeable and often not very helpful. The rooms are well appointed with modern touches. Bathroom was large with nice large rain showerhead. A/C unit worked well. Nice large flat screen TVs. WiFi was not functioning in our building due to construction and so we had to go the lobby to check e-mail, etc. Overall, our experience was pleasant enough although we will probably stay elsewhere the next time.
