From the moment we arrived we were treated with fantastic service, attention to detail from all the staff, and fabulous surroundings including the villa. We requested an additional day bed for our 2 boys (aged 6 & 3) and they provided this, in fact they were very accommodating. We stayed on the ground floor of one of the villas which faced the swimming pool and the sea.
What a great view every morning, and it was a safe environment where our boys wondered beyond the patio onto the grass. The food was excellent and we felt like we went to a family home every time we ate at any of the food areas, whether the restaurant or the bar. The attention to detail was always there, and the service was always more than expected. The cleaning staff left towels in shape of animals, whether a monkey on a hanger or a dog with one of our glasses. The service went from good to better, on our last night, they hosted an intimate dinner for our anniversary; they looked after the children who came back with all sorts of crafts, including puppets, cards with our photos, clock with their pictures in the numbers' places.
The attention was there, and it made our stay very relaxing, from Sabrina, who ensured our stay was relaxing, to Alvin in the restaurant who looked after us so well, to Kirk on the beach who helped our boys look for crabs… a truly relaxing and refreshing holiday and a place we look forward to visiting again in the future.
Boracay itself is an adventure for a family; we managed to go fishing on a fisherman's boat (a serene and innovative man), we participated in this adventure and while we snorkeled they barbecued the lapu-lapu fish in the boat and then we had a most amazing feast. We also went with the same fisherman to the nearby islands; a visit to a non descript café ended up being an exercise in how to consume decent crabs…the kids gorged themselves silly; beats chocolate any day.
We also snorkelled at the hotel itself, the staff informed us where to snorkel and where to avoid the urchins, it was usually safer to snorkel in the morning when the tide was in. We also went to town / The Mall with the shuttle minibus offered by the hotel, which were convenient. Walking on the beach in a straight line was also a perfect route to the mall. We bought fish from D'Talipapa market and ate it at one of the restaurants next to the market. However we always found refuge back in the hotel and enjoyed coming back to our villa. When it rained (warm rain during rainy season) they had plenty of DVDs or books to keep us entertained, although the rain usually lasted an hour so we stayed under the umbrellas on the beach in front of the hotel or ignored it nonchalantly and continued swimming in the glorious pool. It is located at the far end of the beach, which meant being away from the nightlife, although still within walking distance, via the beach.
The hotel provided snorkelling masks, goggles, inflatable tyres and lilos, and plenty of buckets and spades, which meant that both our boys were entertained, without us packing too many beach things with us. In short, it was a thoroughly enjoyable experience, one which we keep on remembering and one which we will hopefully experience again in the future. Sincerely this environment would not be possible if it was not for the generous nature of everyone that worked there…we thank them so much. See you …soon!
