The District Boracay

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 22, 2013

We stayed at The District Boracay for 7 nights. From the minute we arrived in Caticlan airport we were looked after and made feel very comfortable. We were met at the airport and transferred to the District by air con van, ferry, and van again and helped the entire way by the boys who were so helpful and nice. We walked in the entrance of the hotel to a beautiful greeting from all the staff and from that minute felt like we had made the perfect choice of hotels. The rooms were large and very clean. They were serviced twice a day if needed. The hotel is very modern and a stand out in the area by far. It is location perfect with the mall, restaurants and night life very close and the beach right at the front door. The pool is really nice and clean and good size. The buffet breakfast was very fresh and the restaurant staff very helpful with everything. They even made us a take away breakfast on our last day as we had a 4am checkout. Special thanks to Cindy at the front desk for her welcoming and help throughout our stay, also Edgar by the beach for making our stay very enjoyable and very helpful information about the island etc and Myke for his help with transfers and helpful information about everything we needed to know. We would not consider another hotel on our return to Boracay next time. Loved it

After a prepaid transfer from Kalibo to Caticlan, we were met by Joffre who escorted us through the port, bypassing the queue waiting to enter the board. Check in was quick with a delicious Kalamansi drink. We were staying in a deluxe suite and the extra space + separate living room were great. Bed was comfy, shower pressure very strong and all amenities - shampoo etc, were very good quality. 7pm knock on the door/treats left on the bedside table. Breakfast buffet had a wide variety of food definitely catering to western tastes. Must recommend the truffle sauce tagliatelle (number 64 on the menu) and I think pizza number 6, or whichever is the only with salami. Both totally homemade and big thumbs up.

Pool was great but district is located right on the beach and lounge chairs are only for hotel guests. Edgar, who was often on duty at the beach bar, was always great to speak to and always willing to take your holiday snaps with the magnificent back drop of white beach!

Overall, The District was a winner. It is pricey but you certainly are receiving what you pay for in terms of service, quality and location. The staff are very helpful in helping you with any needs you have.

The District delivers first class service with attention to detail expected from higher tiered hotels. It provided complimentary transfers contacting me to confirm scheduled transfer & pick up location. The district charters its own private boat to & from the mainland with shuttle service. Staff were very pleasant, providing us with a very warm welcome upon arrival & during our stay. As an observation, all staff whom came in close contact/range with guests greeted them with a genuine smile & welcome! Front desk staff were well spoken & addressed me by name (wow). Facilities were new & well maintained. Rooms were immaculate & serviced twice a day with a turn down service in the evening that was a touch of class; arriving to a room with a welcoming note & treats. Great detail was delivered through presentation & use of higher quality products / finishes spanning from the toiletries provided to the pool lounges, towels, bedding just to name a few.
The complementary daily breakfast buffet was to a high western standard, as were all three of the hotels restaurants. Our departing flight was scheduled prior to breakfast, the night before we approached to select from packed breakfasts for the next morning, these were also well considered and delicious.

My cousin booked this hotel for me and my 2 friends (we're from the US). I couldn't have asked for a better experience, from the rooms and amenities to the excellent service. And the beach is literally steps outside the front door. Totally worth it!

I only stayed for 4 nights at this resort and I had the best time ever.
We felt welcome from the time we landed at Caticlan airport. The butler Alvin nicely assisted us from the airport to the hotel. The receptionists were all displaying professional attitude at all time and delivered 5 stars service, especially Glen that assisted us with bags and excursions requests.
The room was large, nice rain shower, TV, confortable bed... couldnt ask for more.
Their.buffet breakfast offers a large selection of items and was a great way to start the day.
They also have a nice lounge on the top floor with a nice view of the sea, they have good deals for happy hours.
The beach is amazing! The hotel staff working on the beach is ensuring that you are having a great time.
Will definately return next vacation. Excellent value for money.

Among the slew of hotels that crowd the main beach, we decided to stay at The District Boracay. I am absolutely over the moon about this resort. I supposed it's because there's so much to say about this hotel. But if you ask me to describe it in one word, it is a "standout" and by far the best smelling and swankiest hotel we've ever stayed in Boracay.We chose this hotel for obvious reasons including: the first-rate amenities that are deliciously part of our stay, the room with our own verandah, fully stocked mini bar, free Wi-Fi, flat screen TV, a full-sized executive desk, a safety deposit box, among others. Plus, nightly turndown service and all gratuities included. And if that doesn’t make you say OMG, perhaps a few more of our reasons will: the location - it is located right in the middle of Station 2 in Boracay, just near D'Mall and all the famous night spots. And if you are coming from Station 1, it is just few meters away from Starbucks Coffee. the warm welcome from staff- Upon arriving, we were greeted with the posh but chic glass-walled reception area, decorated with very art modern-inspired architecture and design, with a view of the ocean that looks as if it came right out of a magazine. Check-in and the registration was smooth and hassle-free. The receptionists were so accommodating and they made us feel instantly at home.
From the minute we walked in, we were smitten. Being the perfectionist that I am (not to be confused with obsessive-compulsive), I am very particular with the cleanliness and the "smell" of the room. Personally, I think these are 2 important requirements for the hotel I stay in. The District Boracay did not disappoint us in this aspect. It makes this place a million times better than it already is.We stayed in room 107 which has 2 queen size beds, and private verandah where we enjoyed a spectacular view of the pool. It was the perfect room for our stay because my daughter loves being in the water. We have experienced the best bed and pillow combo! The beds were super comfy and the pillows were really soft. You'll feel that you just never want to leave the bed.It seems that The District has poured out all the goodness in one place. I don’t have time to list all of the additional perks here, but let’s just say complimentary bowl of fresh fruits, slippers, robes and daily turndown treats with individually-named cards, or a personalized "sweet dreams" note with sweet treats were part of our amazing stay in this hotel. They have everything you need for a relaxing stay in case you forget to bring your own toiletries. Adding to its charm is its commitment to ecotourism, they have Eco-Fresh toiletries including an insect repellant. I like the elegant vanity sink and it has a separate high-flowing rain shower and comfort room.On top of all of this, I can’t say enough nice things about the staff at The District. It is far better than I might have imagined it would be. They are always ready to assist us throughout our entire stay. They went above and beyond the all-inclusive call of duty and they made sure that all our needs and requests were well attended. I like how organized they are in terms of sending mails and emails about our flight schedules, transfer arrangements as well as providing guest questionnaires after our stay. After our trip, I even received an email offering a dinner for two at Vigan Grill on our next visit as their gesture of appreciation. Plus points on generosity, thoughtfulness, and for being exceptionally friendly and helpful. Having said that, they managed that fine balance between efficiency and friendliness. I highly recommend this hotel.
