I stayed at the Boracay Sands Hotel for 2 nights in February, 2011. It was my first visit to Boracay and I was travelling with 2 girl friends. The location was fantastic - right on the beach, it was peaceful and quiet and just a short walk to Station 2.
The room was modern and comfortable, while it was clean the carpet was stained a bit. The shower was fantastic.... but, the toilet was a water-saving one so and required a couple flushes for a clean bowl. The key card had to be left in place for power to the room so charging cell phones/camera betteries had to be thought through. My only real complaint.... the wifi wasn't accessible in my second floor room.... I had to stand outside the room, overlooking the swimming pool. The breakfasts were great! and was different both mornings that we were there. All the staff was very friendly and helpful.
The rates on the website were cheaper than the rates we got at the hotel for the second room. Only one room was available online when I booked - directly through the hotel website.
We found the rates at the money exchange a bit better closer to the hotel than further down in Station 2.
I'd definitely stay here again if I ever find myself back in Boracay!
