We stayed for two nights and it was too long! There are good and bad points about this resort.
The restaurant is really nice, in a treehouse with good food and friendly staff. The section of beach in front of the resort is relatively quiet compared with the rest of White Beach.
The room was awful and really overpriced at p1,350 per night. The room was big but felt empty with only a bed and a fan. The only window was through to the next room with a thin curtain, so you could see and hear everything in the next room. As there was no ventilation the room was very damp and smelt terrible. The shared bathroom was fine and good size. There was good wifi in the restaurant.
We spent 5 months traveling in the Philippines and Boracay was the only place we really didn't like. It's so busy, everywhere is crowded with tourists, we couldn't even see the famous beach because there were so many people on it. We didn't feel the locals were so friendly and welcoming which we had become used to. We felt like we were treated like a walking wallet, all then want to do is get your money. We were constantly bothered by the vendors offering massages, jetski, boat ride, snorkelling, hats, sunglasses, souvenirs, it's relentless, they stand in your way and will try anything to make a sale.
The beach is horribly over developed, it's like Manila on a beach. Every inch of the beach is covered with resorts, restaurants, dive shops and stalls. There is a McDonalds and a Starbucks on the beach, you can get cuisine from all over the world, but might find it difficult to find any local dishes.
Boracay just didn't feel like we were even in the Philippines, it's completely lost its culture, history and identity. It's such a shame as I'm sure it was truly beautiful before the developers took over.
There are so many incredible islands in the Philippines, it's really sad what has become of Boracay.
