“Don't make me go home”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

Here's the gossip, Perfect view, water, some great food and drink, and staff who are arguably the best in the world. Kris, Elmer, Joanna,Nestor, even cheeky Edward made this a perfect holiday. So do yourself a favour, book whatever room you want, but don't stay in it. Grab a cabana, set up camp, drink, eat, swim, snooze and watch the sun go down. The staff are just wonderful,nothing was too much trouble, and ask my boyfriend, I can be fussy. They even got in some of my brand of ice cream when I found out they didn't have any. You don't need boracay, you just need barLO

“Excellent 4-Cheese Pizza and interesting Oyster Sisig”
Reviewed June 6, 2013

I would rate this place 5 stars for the pizza alone, but had to take the rest of the experience into consideration. Let's talk about that pizza! It was love at first bite! I didn't expect such creaminess, and the cheeses they used were the perfect balance of soft, gooey, sharp, and mild. It is a taste explosion, and would be great with a white wine (did not see the wine list though)! The mushroom pizza, although good on its own, paled in comparison. The Oyster Sisig was inventive and decadent, but I suggest that you order it to share with 3-4 friends as it is, as with all sisig, oily. We got it as a bar snack during happy hour, and was more than enough. For lunch though, it would be nice to pair with rice.
Their hard drinks are reasonably priced during happy hour, and they mix drinks with a kick without sacrificing taste. As for shakes, I really enjoyed the banana-toffee cooler, as I'd never had such a combination -- but it was delicious!
The servers were inconsistently efficient. We went thrice in one trip, and each time we'd have a good one, and then a slightly frazzled one.
The hotel so graciously allows diners and customers to use their beach front loungers and cabanas without a mandatory "consumable tab" (unlike some other ridiculous resorts); however, even at the off-peak season we went, the surrounding places played obnoxious club music at stupid o'clock in the afternoon. It could be my age, but I was turned off.

“Decent food but overcrowded in the evening”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

BarLor Resto Lounge has good food but from the afternoon into the night the restaurant is overwhelmed with hard drinking 20 somethings who sit with bottles of whiskey from morning to night. Afternoons become noisy from nearby club blasting thump thump "music" in all directions. Night time is crowded with noisy young revelers. This place symbolizes Boracay in general: foundational beauty obscured by too many people making too much noise.
