“Beach front with affordable prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2014

Referred by My Boracay Guide and I'm glad they suggested this hotel. Its not a first class hotel but they have good service. They offered welcome drinks when we arrived. They let us to check-in early(9am) and prepared they our free breakfast. Inside the room, they provided also peanuts and candies with two bottles of water. We consumed our two bottles and we just refilled it with water outside, its still a mineral. The rooms are complete with AC, tv, ref, wifi, safe and toiletries. We stayed in a family room called Barracuda. Its a beach front hotel in Station 3. All the staff are approachable.

With helpful friendly staff, an excellent location right on the beach, I can't recommend this resort highly enough.
This is our second stay and the accommodation has been been upgraded well.
The service was excellent. Nothing was too much trouble.
We will return!

Great hotel! Very comfortable with excellent staff (friendly and helpful), good kitchen and nice atmosphere. Placed right on the beach (Boat station 3), has own sun beds and provides beach towels for free. Bar with fresh juices for very reasonable price. Our room was cleaned daily, as well as towels changed too). Comfortable beds, hot shower with free toiletries, flat screen TV, in room safe, minibar. Free water dispenser in restaurant, beautiful sea view. Prices in cafes and shops next door were cheaper as on Station 2 and 1. Best place for those who want to become a diver. Some minor disadvantages: sea in front of the hotel overfilled with boats and you should go 50 m aside to swim; dirty depressive ruins of a private house right next to hotel. Proximity of private house with their cocks and dogs will awake you very early. But we haven’t paid much attention to the disadvantages; the hotel is comfortable with very friendly atmosphere. Will choose again!

Room Tip: We have had a family room named "Barracuda", spacious enough for 4 adults.

If you want normal service, then choose this hotel. There is a conditioner and refrigerator in the room. There was no problems with the facilities. Friendly staff. We were completely surprised that the towels are included in the room rate. There are 3 offers to chose the breakfast. It looks like the owners of this hotel know how to provide standard service for the customers. There are plenty of restaurants all around. Don't be lazy and try the sea food on Talipapa market. It lies just 10 minutes walking from the hotel. I do really advise this hotel to everybody, especially if you chose Boracay for diving. There are many ways for diving. Enjoy it!!!

My son and I stayed at DiveGurus Boracay Beach Resort for 6 nights while he undertook his Open Water certification. The rooms are simple but clean and well maintained with air-conditioning and roof safe's for your valuables. The staff are really great and the place has a welcoming family vibe.
Great dive team as well. Recommend to anyone looking to enjoy a more affordable destination at the quieter end of the beach.

During our stay at Boracay we went to the Dive Gurus because our hotel "Greenyard Inn" have an collaboration with them. I have already the "Open water cert" But Roxana took the open water certificate at the Dive Gurus. The Instructors (Christopher Harvey, Rainier Jon Dela Cerna, Timothy Baxter and Jojo Arboleda) they helped her to feel comfortable and really taught her well. Everybody at the Dive gurus are really professional and loves their work. Dive Gurus can also provide with nice rooms, and they have great food at the place with lovely staff that always carries a smile. If you go to Boracay and would like to get the best diving experience, go to the Dive Gurus. Best Regards Malik and Roxana

Dive Gurus was recommended to me by friends and it was the perfect choice of a dive school. Friendly staff, excellent dive instructors and good equipment not to mention the open invite to "sunset beers". Special thanks to Chris for making my dives unforgettable.
