It is a given that Boracay is a runaway in the must-visit places in the Philippines. I have never seen such powdery sand in any other beaches I have visited, locally, at least. Having said that, the total Boracay experience would not be one for the books if the accommodation sucks, pardon me for the word.
Last May 2013, We came back to this beautiful island after 10 years, for me and my husband and a first for my children. Of course, we were careful in choosing the place to stay as the age range of my children is 2-10. We wanted them to enjoy to the max, not only the beach but also the hotel. True enough, what you see in the website of Astoria Boracay is what you get. True enough, what the representative of Club Astoria promised us, the service was very good and the staff very courteous and attentive to our needs. The drying service (for swimsuits and other wet clothings) was a first. No need to worry or find a place to hang them to dry. They will be ready for use the next day. Their beachfront is very spacious complete with lounging chairs and beach umbrellas. They also provide club towels whether you are in the pool or the beach. They also have a cabinet by the beach where you can securely leave your things while enjoying the sun, water, and sand. There's also a restaurant serving delicious food (I suggest more choices, though). But of course, when in Boracay, the variety of dishes in the island are a must-try.
My kids loved the whole experience so much. When they are happy, so are we. Their summer vacation would not have been complete if not for this trip and Astoria Boracay.
