Reviewed October 17, 2007

I attended a Beach wedding of my friend, Mitch and Pascal last October 16,2007 and i stayed at Tonglen Beach Resort room 109. The place as a whole is cozy and nice, perfect for the whole family and friends . Friendly staff. Though there are minor upleasant things, like in my room, a dead cockroach, no hot water in the shower room, poor airconditioning unit but just the same i still like the place because of its coziness, clean and peaceful sorrounding. You really have your privacy. Just make sure you're not gonna stay in Room number 109 not until they fixed it.

We stayed at Tonglen based on the good reviews here, but didn't think much of it. It was very basic, poorly decorated, musty moldy smells, no kettle, soap or bottled water provided (I consider these pretty basic items for a hotel marketing itself as a 'resort').

Every day we had to wait at least 45-60 minutes for our breakfast to be served and this was simply two pieces of toast, one egg and some fatty pieces of bacon. Not sure why it took so long. It is also quite a walk from the beach when you have to do the walk numerous times a day.

Service was friendly, but not that fantastic and there was sand in the bed when we arrived. We still had a wonderful time in Boracay, but I think there are definitely better places to stay in the same price bracket, or it is worth to pay a little more if this is one of your only holidays of the year.

My Fiance and I loved the setting, cleanliness, comfort, and staff courtesy. Location was excellent a few blocks off beach away from noise. Gave you privacy but close to everything. Operated by British expat and his Filipino wife. Great ambience, plan to stay here again.

The place to be if you want peace and quiet. Well located, but not crowded.
Rooms very comfortable and the pool very inviting.
I look forward to my next visit.
