“New and Great Location!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2012

Honestly, overall I really liked this place, but because it's new, the staff was a bit untrained. It took around 20 minutes to check in and out even though there wasn't a line. Also, one of the bellboys ran over my foot and knocked me out of the way and didn't even notice because he was so engrossed in giving his presentation to the couple in front of us explaining the amenities.

The management tried to make the process kind of overcomplicated because the girl that walked us to the room, stayed there for like 5-10 minutes trying to explain everything.

I love how all the rooms are quite cool even without Aircon. The amenities and hotel were very nice. I liked the Filipino breakfast better than the American breakfast. The pool was a bit small and very very cold, but overall it was pretty nice.

The hotel is right on the beach and located "2 blocks" away from D'Mall. It was such a convenient location.

The beds were super comfy and the pillows too. You just never want to leave the bed. We got a DealGrocer deal, so it was definitely worth it! We plan to come here again!

Amazing hotel and team. Thank Goodness Boracay is starting to get a little bit of affordable luxury, the old weary fire risk hotels are being taken over/demolished, by the new breed. Nice modern but reflects modern Filipino styles, and clean, great beds, great balcony, in the middle of the action but in a safe environment. Team young but obviously well trained , I hope they make the training on-going as this is their big big strength. Thank-you Sunday for your help in going the extra to help me get my stuff I left on the bus in Kalibo.
Breakfast nice, at first seems too small (American plated I had) P390 ++ But perfect. Coffee amazing, perfect start, sitting outside. Pool a bit visible to all the rooms but if you had kids maybe a good thing, family perfect to stay on the ground floor. But couples, pay a little extra for the next room type up, they are amazing and the little roof top terraces all over the roof top over the hotel a great touch. Wouldn't swim in the sea the only downside, where does the D'mall sewage go......

Otherwise this is the hotel right now for Boracay giving perfect balance between value and excellent quality.

Room Tip: 411 in the next level or the one above it. 2nd and 3rd floors best.

Our stay was 3d/2n. The place is very comfortable with all the new linens & furnitures, plus the rooms are very spacious too. The location is in the heart of Boracay, a very short distance from D Mall. Service was also good, although the staffs are still new and need more training. But they really try to please the guests.

Unfortunately our hot water wasn't working for 1 day, they were able to immediately fix it. So far, this is a place in Boracay where I would stay again next time.

we got a good deal being 50% off during soft opening, when we got there we waited for room, they advised that we had been upgraded, but this room had steep stairs not ideal for children, and just felt cramped, so we stayed on floor level out front of the pool, much better room, one big problem is the water pressure and it went hot and cold, very cold air con and fridge was great -being new.

Staff are accomodating to needs, wifi did not work at all and no dvd player in room.

The 3 rows of sun longes had no shade, this made it really hot when the sun came out, they really should attend to this.

Great location, in the middle, we enjoyed bamboo lounge great chinease food and fire dancers, people at this establishment were so lovely, they watched the children whilst you could relax, and enjoyed doing this.

Room Tip: rooms down on floor level have more space

I would definitely recommend staying here if you want good service, high quality accommodation situated in the middle of all the action. I have stayed in a few locations in Boracay and this is a great choice. The beds are comfortable, the rooms are roomy and very well decorated, the staff were always attentive, and the pool was really great. And it is good value.

However as it is new, there are some small teething problems. Some of the challenges we found:
- breakfast was poor quality if you are after western breakfast. The croissant was more like a bread roll and cheese in the ham and cheese panini is the squeeze cheese, not real cheese.
- There is no shaded area to rest near the pool
- There are only a few sunbeds on the beach. Next door at Red Coconut there were many, including some in the shade. They should replicate that.
- No food allowed on the beach, which was a pity as it would have been great to relax and have something to eat whilst relaxing. We had to move to the restaurant to eat.
- They havent set up the security to fend of local vendors whilst lying on the beach, which come up very 2 mins trying to sell you things. Other hotels have some protection against this.
- The upstairs bar (which looks wonderful) wasnt open yet.

If the above could be solved then this would be the best hotel on Boracay Station 2.

Room Tip: Upgrade to Premier - worth the little bit extra!

Absolutely fantastic stay at the district. Here with my 3 kids - 11,15 16. We were all treated with such sincerity. Nothing was too much. In fact we didn't have to ask as what ever we wanted seemed to appear - from Beach towels, lounges on beach, washing our feet . We were treated like royalty. Perfect location - on beach, close to shops and food . Very quiet. Pool perfect for us all. Food at restaurant was excellent. Best service ever!!!! Will be back and will recommend to pur friends . Loved the little cakes each night and bed being turned down

Room Tip: We had junior suite with loft. Great. All fitted in.
