7 Stones Hotel is situated on Bulobog beach aka wind-surfing beach and just a 5 minute walk from D'Mall. Do be aware that the walk can be a little sketchy at night. Although we loved that the hotel was beautiful and quaint, we felt that the service wasn't that friendly and helpful, and the rooms were tiny and below average at best.
When we were dropped off at the hotel, I was a bit stunned by the poor soroundings and the unassuming narrow pathway that led up to the hotel lobby (I guess I was expecting Boracay to be a little more luxurious than it really is). We checked-in ok and had yummy welcome drinks before we made our way to our hotel room located on the 1st floor. Our "superior room" was dark, really tiny and had zero view. The bed was a tempur-pedic bed which I disliked but my partner enjoyed. Room temperature was never really cool enough. Everything else was kind of blah and nothing stood out in our room. A mishap we had was when we tried opening the mini fridge and a snapple bottle fell out and broke. We called housekeeping immedietly to tell them what happened, and left a generous tip for the cleaning (I hate to say it but the cleaning job was pretty half-assed). During check out we reminded the receptionist of the incident, but we were still charged.
The hotel itself is nice with a decent morning buffet, relaxing pool, and a quiet beach front with a few comfortable lounging chairs, a children's play area, and a hammock. However, the hammock was made out of plastic, and came loose off the tree as my partner and I tried lounging on it. It is important to note that we are not the slightest bit heavy. A woman next to us chuckled at the scenario and despite being semi-embarassed, we laughed it off too. But seriously, it was kind of dangerous.
Overall, I do miss the quiet and gorgeous side to this hotel, but we were pretty dissapointed with the warmth of service and the room. I would probably not choose to return.
