We spent hours online searching for the perfect, yet reasonably priced boracay accommodation. After numerous searches we came across the perfectly rated Green Point Studios. We read that the hotel was situated 300m back from Studio 3, but we decided that we were ok with that.
On arrival we couldn't believe the quality and cleanliness of the accommodation and the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. The rooms are just fantastic - spotlessly clean, excellent aircon, beautifully soft bath towels, nice linen and lots of space to unpack. There is a bar fridge in the small kitchenette.
The hotel is located at the end of Station 3, about 300m up the road from the beach. It was nice and quiet - so we slept well! We thoroughly enjoyed the walk in the evening along the beachfront to the busier station 2 for dinner followed by a few stops for drinks on the way home. There are good restaurants close to the hotel, but we preferred to walk the ~20-30 minutes to the busier areas and enjoy the atmosphere. On the days when we were too lazy to walk we caught a shared tricycle for 10P (USD.25) each to station 1 or hired a private tricycle for P60 (USD1.5). As this hotel is not a beachfront resort, during the day we would choose a restaurant with beach lounges and a drink / lunch / etc. otherwise we'd just lay out a sarong under 1 of the many coconut trees.
This hotel is still "cheap" because it's undiscovered (I think I'm writing it's 5th review on trip advisor). If you're looking for something clean, modern and slightly out of the action - I'd HIGHLY recommend Green Point.
