“Down at the bottom.”
Reviewed June 25, 2012

Just left after four nights here. I knew exactly what to expect having spent nights here previously. It certainly ain't 5 star. More like .5 star. Anyway, we got an air con room with good tele on the ground floor. Haggled the price down to 800 pesos. They will ask for as much as they think they can get. Had clean towels of poor quality which we used four the entire four nights. Not too sure if the linen was fresh, the wife could smell perfume on the pillow case. Used the same linen for the four nights. Bathroom was probably unacceptable to most foreigners. Smelly, dirty sink with no plug, flush toilet with bucket, no hot water and a general lack of maintenance. Three beds in the room so we could swap sheets if we needed. There was what I think was a water pump or generator making a racket just adjacent to our room.
A fellow guest one level up reported a young Filipino attempted to open his door by putting his arm through an open window and reaching across. It was about 8am and he was still in bed. Did not apprehend him of course. We had no such problem and our iPad and laptop were left in our room whenever we ventured out. We found the staff to be friendly enough, very friendly. I suggest they get many complaints and are quite defensive to begin with but when they realize you aren't ther to complain they are ok. Of course the management is poor and probably hard to track down if you bothered trying.
Over all the place is similar to old beach nipa huts we stayed in for long periods back in the early eighties. If you don't like roughing it a little bit, stay somewhere else. The wifi was ok, but there is a small charge. We paid 100 pesos for the four nights but this would also be negotiable,no doubt. The room is not cleaned unless you request it to be.

Stayed June 2012, traveled as a couple

When we arrived in Boracay but hadn't booked anything. We got off the boat and were approached by a guy who was offering a good price and in a great spot on White Beach.
You have to walk through a restaurant to get to the place and from the outside it wasn't too bad although the courtyard outside did not make for a pretty view. Inside was not great, sheets with cigarette burn holes and stains. Towels were small, old and worn. The interior was shabby, paint peeling and wires hanging all over the place. In the bathroom the taps in the sink didn't work and the lead for the hot water ran out of the bathroom into the room. Not great as water was dripping on it. The staff were disinterested at best and having paid for 3 nights we left after 2. For php1500 a night there are other better places to stay.

Room Tip: If you don't want to book before hand at least have a look at some places so you have an idea of...

The bed cover wasn't of the same size as the bed so I always had to fix it. The mattress was too thin and I could feel the wooden bed already. Having lower back pains, the bed made it worse for me because I couldn't relax after a tiring day. The pillow (they provide only one per person) was horrible, uneven and not fluffy. The bathroom was alright though, but no hot water. The staff wasn't pleasant at all; they didn't seem too happy about their jobs. It was never our choice to be here. We were only billeted here because the inn that we booked at overbooked and had to transfer us to this horrible hotel.
