“Fabulous way to experience the island of Boracay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

Spent 10 days at Argonauta, special place overlooking the cove looking towards the Shangri-La Hotel. Up on the hill, away from the madness of White Beach, it really is an oasis. Very homy, European standards, great views, awesome staff not to mention an awesome owner, Stefanie Dorneau. Boutique hotel that has the best of all conveniences--mini fridge, a/c, hot water, stunning views of sunrise and sunset, its own little community. Shuttle service to and from White Beach. Definitely a place to return to- over and over again. In fact, will be back for the New Year!

Room Tip: All rooms are unique. Either way, great base and sanctuary to experience the island from!

We had an amazing time at Argonauta! The fact that it's away from the touristy areas is what makes this place a gem.. It's relaxing, quiet, peaceful and the villas have amazing views. Waking up in the morning and having a cup of coffee on the terrace or the balcony and just enjoying the view was one of the highlights of our day. The hospitality was excellent! Everyday we were taken to any beach that we wished to go with the hotel's shuttle. The breakfast was delicious. I strongly recommend their pancakes. :) Overall the staff was amazing and had smiles on their faces at all times..They really made our stay very pleasant and memorable. I recommend Argonauta to anyone that's going to Boracay!

Our time here was amazing. The hotel is tucked away on a hill side away from all the noise and traffic of the main beaches. The main beaches are only about a 5 minute drive away which the staff will drop you off whenever needed.
Staff pays great attention to guests and the establishment is Eco friendly.
Amazin views over looking quiet beaches. Great rooms and many balaconies and roof top decks.
I definitely Reccomend this boutique hotel.

We spent one week at at Argonauta Boracay (Villa 6) and enjoyed it very much. We looked for a secluded and tranquilly place a bit further from the busy tourist areas and got this beautiful villa with a awesome view. To Puka Beach we took a short ride (5 min/100 Peso) and found it much nicer than the crowded White Beach.
Manager Paul organized the transfer from the airport to the villa and always helped us in every questions and affairs.
We will definitely come back.

We spent a week at Argonauta Boracay. Aiming for rest and relaxation away from the busy touristy areas, Argonauta lived up to our expectations and to top it off had the most amazing view of a quaint little beach accompanied by jaw dropping sunsets!
We had the 2 bed appartment with it's own little living area and kitchenette, functional particularly when u have little ones. It was sad we couldn't access to the little beach which you overlook when you wake up every morning also a bigger bed in the main room would be great. With the appartments only accessible by quite steep steps (hence the amazing views) its not particularly ideal for kiddies. Stephanie and all the staff were lovely, welcoming and happy to help in any way. Amazing seafood dinner!! I was really surprised how good the boys could cook! Fantastic experience, thanks so much.

Just when I thought Boracay was getting too crowded and commercial, we found this gem. Argonauta is beautiful and well-maintained, with great views. I think it's new. It was like a home away from home, only more luxurious! Paul, the manager/owner, was very helpful and friendly and always made sure we were comfortable. It's great if you want a little peace and quiet, but If you also want to be part of the action on White Beach, it's easy to get there, too. I'd definitely stay here again.
