“Very good hotel and location.”
Reviewed April 27, 2014 via mobile

We booked Deluxe Room for 5 nights during our trip in Jan 2014.

Room is clean and spacious enough, with sofa at the balcony (good for smokers so they are given a proper space to smoke).

Breakfast selection is not huge but comfortable enough.

Location is superb! Just steps away to the beach, near enough to everything including D'mall but quiet from the rowdy bars.

Hotel provides adequate beach chairs and beach towels are available for collection at the pool counter.

The staff from hotel are friendly and nice. Particularly , Mr Armando (security man on beach) and Mr Edgar (staff on duty at the beach). They make sure the area / beach chairs are clean and sweep out any sand on it. They are proactive to ask if you will like to order any drink while suntanning. They chit chat with you enough but not too much that disturbs you. They are alert and always look around to ensure everything is alright (instead of yawning and laze around after long hours of standing).

Overall we are very satisfied with the hotel and staff !

Our first time in Boracay was amazing and The District is absolutely the cherry on top. First class service with the warmest welcomes the moment you step in until the moment you leave the island. The staff were always greeting us with a smile. Any request was attended to without a worry. Great location, very near to the D'mall. What made me love this hotel most was their kind consideration to your every need. We were accomodating 3 pax in a room and there was 3 of every item in the room for our convenience. Plus, there was always complimentary philippino candy every day! I highly recommend this hotel for couples, familied and anyone!

Thank you so much for dining at Caruso Ristorante Italiano! Caruso serves undeniably great pizzas and pastas which include their bestseller, the Caruso Pizza (tomato, mozzarella, olives, anchovies, and Parma ham).

Boracay is undeniably one of the most sought after tourist destinations in the Philippines. This island boasts of its luscious greenery, white sand beaches, and majestic natural beauty. It is in this regard why many hotel–resorts have opened within the island's vicinity. However, not all hotels offer the best services. Fortunately, my family had the chance to stay at a contemporary resort, which provides a set of different and refreshing offerings in a more personalized way! The District was our “home” in the island for three days. It was the ideal place to bunk out because the moment we arrived, we felt home and couldn't ask for more! The District sports a contemporary chic architecture; it has 48-well appointed rooms and suites that are truly cozy and inviting. And while it’s a contemporary boutique right in front of the beach, which is close to the heart of action, The District still gives guests the relaxing time they look for in a vacation. This is one thing my husband and I clearly enjoyed. There's no hotel like The District, which provides ultimate comfort and personalized, genuine service to all!

Well, booking a holiday within a holiday is always a bit stressful as I like to get it right. We are on vacation in the Philippines to visit family but wanted to also have a little bit of a resort vacation as well while we were here.... I wanted my partner to be able to enjoy a really nice experience while we are here and I scored with The District Hotel. We travels a lot across Canada and the USA and have favourite hotels in many cities. WE WILL RETURN to this hotel when we come back. They really try very hard to take all stress out of the experience - from greeting us at the airport to getting us back for our return flight.... TOP MARKS from me or all staff... We will be coming back and staying for a week this time, probably see you in December.

LOCATION - it really is perfect. Right in the middle of the action without be right next to the beach nightclubs.

ROOMS - we had the premium room with the King Bed - VERY NICE - we felt like Royalty! Had a room at the back of the hotel so it was very quiet.

BEACH ACCESS - very nice beach, security staff are fabulous - always attentive to your needs. The umbrellas to provide shad were moved as soon as sun started to hit any part of me...

BREAKFAST - this is included and really first class. Good work by the team, just suggest they work on keeping the coffee cups full.

AIRPORT TRANSFERS - I am so glad they offered this. It is nice to know someone is taking care of you when you have to navigate from an airport, across water, they but shuttle to your hotel. They know what they are doing. THANK YOU for taking care of that stress for us.

WHO STAYS THERE - people from around the world. It is a little more pricy so it seemed little there were mainly international travellers staying here. Not the party crowd, which was nice for a restful getaway (when we were resting)

STAFF - everyone was fabulous. Really a treat to have met them all.

TIPPING - suggest you tip staff when you get good service, they work hard to please really appreciate it. 50-100 pesos goes a long way...

MOSQUITOES - yes they have these pesky creatures here but the hotel also provided complimentary spray. We did not have any troubles while were were there for 4 days.

SPECIAL NOTE - Starbucks is close by.

Room Tip: Upgrade! The king bed room is worth the money if you are a couple travelling

You will be hard pressed to find a hotel with a better location and better service. The district lies a few steps away from D'Mall, where all the action is, making it the ideal place to go to if you're looking to make the most of the island's famous party scene, or fun with the family. The service was impeccable, with every member of the staff going out of their way to ensure you feel like a VIP.

Your food choices consists of Authentic Italian Restaurant, Caruso, as well as The Star Lounge, the restaurant located at the hotel's roof deck, that combines the elements of fine dining on a beach setting, making it a more relaxed experience. Breakfast is at the Star Lounge on the second floor, Formerly called the Vigan Grill, The choices are not as extensive as other hotels, but the ambiance and spectacular view of the sea as you dine from the veranda overlooking the beach is an experience in itself.

What makes The District even more appealing is that its a few steps away from the beachfront, with its staff catering to your needs as you relax to the sound of the waves crashing.

The lap pool is adequately sized, with a jacuzzi located at the far end. Notably missing though is a section for children.

The District is a Boutique hotel, but the area is spaced out just right, maximizing every square inch without feeling too cramped.

Admittedly, it lacks a gym or fitness Center, but I was informed that plans are underway to rectify that.

Many people are off put by the steep rates, especially considering the lower costs of its competitors around the area, but once you stay at The District, you will see where every cent you spent goes.

The District is definitely a MUST STAY Option when going to Boracay!

Room Tip: The Premiere room is the best value Room

Dear PickiestEater,

Warm greetings from The District Boracay, your contemporary boutique beachfront resort in Boracay!

Thank you so much for sharing this very positive review of our resort. We are very happy to hear that you find The District Boracay the ideal place to stay when in Boracay!

We are also very happy to know that the ambiance and the view from our Star Lounge restaurant were to your liking. We’ve already addressed, and continually finding ways to further improve our breakfast spread. One of which is by launching the “Best Brunch Buffet in Boracay”, which may be enjoyed daily. We hope you can try this too!

Our Fitness Center is definitely something we are all looking forward to, and we will definitely let you know once works are underway. A children’s area is also worth-considering for future additional facilities, thanks for the suggestion.

Lastly, I would like to inform you that we only have one type of guest – and those are the VIPs. All our guests are very important to us and deserve nothing but that extra-special attention and the most personalized service fit for royalties. And you surely are a VIP guest – that is why we made sure your vacation is as comfortable as possible.

Thanks again for making us your home in the island, we certainly hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you and your family back again sometime in the future.

The District Boracay wasn't as huge as I expected, but turnabout it's size is actually better because almost all rooms are a short walk to the lobby, and to the beach. The amenities and the materials they used from the bed sheets to the toiletries are top notch. Oh and the food is really good!

To top it all off, all the staff are accommodating! I especially appreciated the beach security / life guard when he got a couple of beach toys for my daughter to play with. Everyone there is very hospitable.

Lastly, it has the perfect location (station 2) because the beach area is not as crowded as the ones in the middle of station 2 making their beach very relaxing... But at the same time, it's only walking distance to D'Mall. The best of both worlds! Next time we go to Boracay I will definitely want to check in again here.
