Me, my mom and sister stayed at room 105 located at the lower ground.Stayed for 4d/3n (Oct 14-17, 2012).The room was very spacious, squeaky clean,has the necessary equipments and amenities.The staff are very friendly and are accommodating.They are quick to respond to your needs.You even get a welcome drink and free wet face towel during check-in.You can stay at the garden to smoke.There are ample ashtray trash bins for smokers.What gives me headache was there's NO SIGNAL at all for Globe Telecom and Sun Celullar. Only Smart Communications has signal in the hotel.There's FREE WIFI, only 1 user account good for only one gadget BUT the wifi is unstable! the signal either goes down or it drops! Wifi and the telco's poor signals are very frustrating for someone who needs to be connected to the internet 24/7.Plus even if you have unlimited internet subscription to globe or sun cellular, it is USELESS! I spent more time OUTSIDE of the room where there's signal for globe and sun rather than INSIDE the room.They could have provided a coffee table and chair outside of the room.

Can't say anything bad about the hotel's architecture and design. It is a beautiful structure. The rooms are big with comfortable queen-sized beds. All rooms have a "calm" vibe. My room had a 4-seater dining table and mini-kitchen complete with microwave oven. No full-length mirror but the 2 mirrors (room and bathroom) were more than adequate. The bathrooms are large with a tub and a chic shower head. All rooms have a view of the pool. The restaurant is light and airy with very interesting fish-themed decor. Everything is clean and well-thought out.

Their staff is wonderful! Their manager, Ms. Joy, the F & B manager and the head waiter were all super efficient and went the extra step to satisfy clients. Everyone is helpful and polite. They even helped out magnificently when told that we needed an emergency cake because one of our party was celebrating a birthday.

However, in spite of its location in Station 1, it is in the noisy and people-filled part of Station 1 (aka near Station 2). This hotel is ok for a business meeting I guess, but not for a couples vacation. The food was ok but not consistent. There were some buffet spreads that were super delicious but there were some that were just ok. To their credit, there was no bad buffet. I must say though that their coffee was not good.

The beach is not visible from the rooms but can be seen from the restaurant. The beachfront is wide, however, because of the time of the year (monsoon time), there was the obligatory wind barrier that just ruined the view and the experience. Of course this is no fault of the hotel. It just ruined the overall experience.

The rates are a little high but for the size of the room, I guess they are justifiable. This is not a hotel for the budget traveler. It looks posh, it feels posh and one gets what he pays for.

All in all, the experience was positive. But since I am a coffee addict, their coffee really destroyed it for me. Good thing Starbucks was just a few steps away. Would I go back? Definite maybe.

Stayed in Astoria for 3 days with friends last September 2012. The place is really clean and the staff are quick to reply to your needs. The location though isn't great; they say that they're in Station 1 but it feels closer to Station 2 where it's a bit crowded and the beach front isn't great. If you're looking for a quiet place to stay I'd suggest another place. But if you want to be closer to the action then Astoria would be good enough.

It was my first time in Boracay with bestfriend and we have had a great time. Activities were fun but what makes it better is starting it with buffet breakfast :) There were variety of food to choose from and really yummy. And at the end of each day, though tired, we were comfortably relaxing in our room :) I love their room :) I enjoyed their swimming pool :) All in all experience in Astoria is EXCELLENT from delicious food, accommodating staff, amenities, service and all. I wish I can still go back :)

The beauty of Astoria Boracay's design is very relaxing. It's elegant and very cozy. Guest population is ideal, not very crowded. They have nightly bands playing so that's interesting. Internet access is superb and free (yeah, even inside the room! So that's perfect!). Service of the staff is not as good as I was expecting but the hotel manager is great. This property is also very well located. Highly recommended.
