Stayed here last October 2011. The hotel was along the road and just a few walks from the D'mall. The place is a modern style mini hotel with very accommodating staffs. They have a number of movie posters displayed which compliments well with the dining area. The rooms was really clean just like in the pictures they have on facebook. The bedsheets, floor and bathroom was so clean. They have a flatscreen tv and hot and cold shower, too. Though we were unable to make use of the wifi in our room, we have to go to the dining area. Their breakfast was just right, if you want it served fast you have to order the night before because they tend to have shortage of ingredients when you ordered in the morning. All in all, the place suits well our budget and even exceeded our expectations.

Room Tip: The rooms we choose are on the side of the road so it was a bit noisy because of the tricycles passing by. So I would suggest you choose the rooms not on the side of the street if you want your sleep to be good and quiet.

Arrived in the middle of the night, the lady I coordinated with actually waited for me outside to meet me. The place was a bit hidden but it was ok, just a few steps from d'mall. At that time the entry was muddy because it was raining and there was construction in front but it wasn't a bother. The dining area was really nice! LOVELY! the room was spartan but that's the way I like it. Just a few things that bothered me, so many mosquitoes (but the nice people of island nook tried to take care of it as best as they could when we informed them) and there were strands of hair on the floor. but the sheets were white and clean, just the way I like it.

Island Nook is a good place to stay at for tight-budgeted travelers. The rooms can be more cozy but their dining area is nice.

Stayed here for 3 nights. The hotel is very near the entrance to D'mall, but quite a walk from the beach front. We were supposed to move on the second day but decided to stay for the following reasons:
1. Clean and Comfortable room. The room reminds us of our flat white and gray theme with a flat screen on the wall as the only accent. The room is immaculately clean and new. Loved the sheets,they used quality materials in building this shack.

2. Free Breakfast and Affordable rate: There isn't much to write about the breakfast at Island Nook, it's the typical choice of Filipino breakfast which is Hotsilog, Tapsilog and other silogs that I frankly don't have the appetite for plus instant coffee that really is not a good way to start your day. if you are particular about this, skip the breakfast and head on to the beach where you'll find Zucchero Cafe de Boracay, which has the best Italian coffee brew. I'll tell you more about it on a different review but you'll find it at the corner of D' Talipapa.

That's the two main things why we decided to stay. Remember this is not a beach front hotel. May take 10-15 minutes to reach the beach. It's very near the D'Mall where the all the action is (between station 2 and 1) It's clean, new and comfortable. One suggestion though, I think they went overboard in the minimalist theme and forgot to include a side table for the beds. This is very important, we found ourselves putting our lotion, watch and water on the floor...sigh..if only we had a side table.
***Oh and I sampled their Kebab, it claims to have a persian food resto, please do not attempt to order here. My chicken kebab was literally tasteless grilled chicken lunchmeat. Also the day receptionist seems to not know how to answer directly with a yes or no, so please spare a little patience with her.
