We spent a most relaxing and enjoyable 5 days at this hotel. The pick-up service from the airport was one of the best we have experienced- we were taken to the jetty and whisked off in a motorboat to Boracay Island. We were offered glasses of bubbly on the boat- very welcoming. The suite included a kitchenette and sitting room, plus a magnificent balcony (with recliners) with views of the sea, pool and hotel grounds.
We like having the freedom to choose whether to eat in a hotel restaurant, local restaurant or do some self-catering. Here we could do all three. Some evenings we strolled across to the bar and restaurant for dinner, and others we enjoyed preparing some food and eating outside on the balcony, so it suited us perfectly. The owner and family chatted to us and were very welcoming and informative about the local area. The food was excellent, and the pool was in a lovely setting and we had it to ourselves much of the time. There is a jetty with canoes, and a small beach which you can walk along and get to the next cove though a rocky arch. Lots of starfish in the rockpools at low tide.
Although a little way from the White Beach, it was fun to take a short free shuttle/buggy to get there, passing through a small village on the way. Sunbeds/towels were laid on at Cocos-Locos on the beach. We recommend getting there late afternoon to go for a swim in the sea, then stay on for a beer or sun-downer to watch the incredible sunset- very atmospheric with local boats sailing back and forth as the sun goes down. Then you can either stay on for a meal in a local cafe, or go back to the hotel for dinner. There was a good Swiss deli in D' Mall where we bought some treats for self-catering back at the hotel. The hotel staff are very helpful in arranging a selection of day/half-day trips, and we enjoyed the Island-hopping trip. A most relaxing stay.
