“Nice resort 5 min. from White Beach”
Reviewed May 12, 2014

We stayed 3 nights in May 2014. The resort is 5 min. walk from white beach station 3. Good service, clean rooms and awesome affordable food. Free wifi and good aircon. The alley leading to the resort is not so nice. Cheaper sine not located at the beachfront. Good place to stay until you find a good deal on the beach which is a bit tricky.

Tonglen resort is a quiet place to relax. Only a 3 minute stroll to the beach and all the fine dinning and drinking. Easy to get to from the port. It has an entrance front and rear so town or beach it's your choice.the room are good.loved the second floor with balcony. bathroom is basic but clean and the staff very helpful. Aircon is a bit small to cope with the hot days and the bed is a bit tired. What you save on this acommadation covers your drinks and food for the day.breakfast was good value very tasty food. We will be coming back.

Room Tip: The steps to the balcony rooms are big and a stretch at the end of the day.

Very quiet place with excellent sleeping quality. Rooms come with balcony. Tranquil setting a few minutes from the beach. Beds are very comfortable. Staff look a little bored. No unneccesary smiles. All in all a rather good budget choice.

I like the place...the atmosphere is so good for resting. Indeed a good place to spend vacation. Though it is not located at the beachfront still i recommend this place. The attendants are so nice and friendly. We were even allowed to leave our things though we checked out from our room already.

Room Tip: well, perhaps upper rooms are even more beautiful....

Location: Tonglen Beach Resort is located in Station 3, non-beachfront. 10 mins. walk from the beach, but if you have a senior citizen adult (like us) with you, it's not advisable because he/she might have difficulties in walking. This is a great resort because it is also accessible to the main road. It is near grocery stores and carinderia.

Area: The resort is clean. They maintain it very well. Full of trees and flowers. It has a swimming pool (which is a plus since not all hotels/resort in Bora has one), about 4ft to 5ft I think. It has also a swing, trampoline, table tennis, soccer/badminton/volleyball area.

Rooms: We had two deluxe rooms. They are big enough to accommodate us all. Rooms are cleaned by the staff every morning. Towels are being changed everyday, too including the soap and bathroom tissue. The only issue we had was the air con. It wasn't that cold since we were 5 in the room.

Staff: They were so accommodating and lahat sila mababait. They are always there, ready to help you whatever it is.

Food: I can say that the food is great. We ordered Filipino Breakfast. The food is alomost good for two or even three if mahina naman kumain. Choices of breakfast include Filipino, American or English breakfast.

Rates: Rates are reasonable and affordable. Good for couples, family or friends.

Overall, we (me and my family) enjoyed our stay here. We might go back next year in Bora and we're planning to stay again in Tonglen Beach Resort! :)

Service - very hospitable people, kind, accommodating, nice. Everyday room cleaning and also you can use their facilities for various activities.
Sleep quality/rooms - quiet inside and outside the rooms, no loud noise from bars, nice airconditioning, cable tv is good, free wifi accessible in the rooms, comfy bed, pillows and blankets, well maintained and clean rooms and toilets, however they are not well lit and they look old
Cleanliness - generally clean. The staff clean every now and then and i love that the naturey feel of the hotel because of the grass/trees
Location - back gate you can already ride a tricycle to go around Boracay, front gate is to the white beach for 7 to 10 mins walk
Swimming pool- they clean it everyday. Very comforting to go to the pool after a spending a day and swimming in the beach. They also mix hot water in the pool that makes it more relaxing.
Restaurant - normal food and quite expensive
Fitness center - n/a
Value - worth your penny

Room Tip: Anu room will do

Having stayed for three weeks at the Tonglen I was very pleased with my choice of Hotel.The service is fantastic with helpul,happy smiling staff which created a nice atmosphere.I dined most evenings at the hotel and found the food very nice,freshly cooked meals which take around 30 minutes to serve.Breakfast a nice choice of Philippino or English dishes again very tasty.The hotel is fairly old and so the rooms I found a little dated,the aircon rather loud but immaculately cleaned every day.The location is around a 10 minute walk to White Beach along a narrow pathway which I found no problems at all.White Beach is absolutely stunning.All in all I had a wonderful relaxing time at the Tonglen with no complaints what so ever,a two star hotel with five star service and a nice quiet location, Anthony Ward
