Three of us stayed in Ruby villa for 3 nights. We arrived early and the villa was not ready. Once we were back from lunch, our villa was all ready to be occupied. It has 2 rooms, a living hall equipped with sound system and a large TV, a kitchen with cooking facilities - stove, pots and pans, cutleries and plates and a fridge. However, there is only 1 toilet and there was no bathtub. Each villa has direct access to Bulabog beach. It's the perfect location for sunrise and is away from all the noise coming from pubs and bars.
Boracay Gems is located next to 7 Stones. where you can hop over to utilise their sundeck chairs or hammock. It is just 5 minutes walking distance from D Mall and whola, the White Beach. Wifi works perfectly in the villa and the selection of TV channels were great. Housekeeping will service the villa on a daily basis.
We cooked our own breakfast. We bought eggs, luncheon meat, milk and yoghurt from the convenient shop.
However, Bulabog beach is not really fantastic. The sand feels a little muddy although the water is clear. Not really suitable for swimming. Be mindful when you use the safebox in the room. It does not run on electricity but AA batteries. If the batteries dries up, you may be in trouble.
