Having been to Boracay many times, this is the first time our family stayed at the Boracay Regency. We usually stay at a more basic place, as we spend very little time in our rooms or in the hotel. This being our first Christmas on Boracay beach, we decided to spoil ourselves with the extra luxury.
The location is perfect with all the popular places being less then a 10 minute walk away in both directions. The pools are very clean and refreshing. Although a little too cold for our liking, we did spend a little time lying around he pool instead of on the beach just to get away from the annoying vendors. The breakfast buffet was more then plentiful with lots of choices to get your day started. It was very crowded at times, but they worked very quickly at finding you a table.
The room was spacious and had all the amenities that is required to be on a beach. Houskeeping, however, was a little slow in cleaning the rooms and missed a few little details. On our first morning we unwrapped the bar of soap in the shower and on our last day the wrapper was still on the soap dish. I could have tossed it out myself, but I was just curious to see how long it would be left there. Well...I got my answer on day 5. The towels are a little small and thin, but always refreshed as needed. The beds are a little hard, but in excellent condition with very good linens. It was easy to get a good nights sleep after a long day on the beach.
The hotel offers airport transfers, which is well worth the extra cost, especially if you are coming from the airport in Kalibo. A bus ride of an hour and forty five minutes transfers you to a private waiting area where you board the resorts private speed boat and within 10 minutes you are on the island. The public jetty is much more crowded and you have to wait for an available boat, which is not high speed and takes longer to cross. The V.I.P. treatment is much more relaxing.
I still like my simple no frills hotel on Boracay Beach, but would definitely also return to the Boracay Regency.
