My girfriend and I stayed at Ocean Breeze for 7 nights and had a really great time there.
I'd reserved a room via email and was provided with a complete set of instructions on how to get there (the resort is situated inbetween the main road and beach and accesible only via small paths). The instructions also gave advice on how to get from Caticlan airport to Boracay and included all the fares, terminal fees and costs of the many modes of transport you have to take to get to the island. Without this excellent set of instructions the journey would have been very difficult.
Upon arrival we were warmly welcomed by Vilma and Jane and immediately felt at home. They were both friendly and cheerful and provided excellent service throughout our stay. Not once did I see them without a smile on their faces even after the hundreds of questions i asked. Our bags were taken up the stairs by another member of staff.
The room itself was fantastic. We had our own balcony area with seats and a table, ac, fridge, cable tv, dvd/avi player (with usb input), en-suite bathroom with a great shower. It was very spacious and clean and was made up every day we were there. After a hard day tanning and swimming on the beach it was the perfect place to freshen up and relax. There is also an outdoor shower and tap to remove all the sand and seaweed from your feet before going to your room. Its the small things like this that really count.
We compared rooms and rates with other tourists we met on boracay and easily had the best deal around.
There is wifi at a charge but the daily rate is cheaper than using an internet cafe for an hour. The quality is good and when it did cut out both Vilma and Jane were more than happy to reset the modem which solved the problem.
Its not on the beach and getting there takes 2 minutes or so along the winding paths. This isn't a problem at all though and the first two times we made the trip a member of staff showed us the way. After that it became second nature. Its near station 3 which is the quieter end of white beach and there a number of good restaurants and bars nearby.
The resort has also adopted three kittens that are friendly. My girlfriend spent hours playing with them.
Overall the resort had everything we needed. I'd recommend it to anyone and will go back should we ever return to boracay.
