We were 4 Italian friends and we spent 1 week at Paradise Bay Resort.
I felt at home as soon as i stepped in...the welcome drink, priceless tips about getting around, some very useful free services, like the free internet access or the hotel driver available all day long...it's really true that overall quality is matter of details care!
The resort is nicely positioned, the landscape is awesome and quiteness and relax are guaranteed...nice garden!

We were on 3 rooms directly facing the pool, on the ground floor...very nice and functional rooms, even with a small kitchen setup...service and staff was absolutely friendly, efficient and professional...so everything contributed to enjoy our stay!

Last but not least, the excellent manager (German but speaking an excellent "rhodesian" english) and his parthner Judith, very good people, making you feel as an old friend in matter of minutes!

So the overall comment is more than positive...a place to book again and again for future Boracay adventures!

We were two families, a group of 14adults and 2kids--in boracay for post wedding celebrations/ bonding with my sister's new hubby's family (whew@#!) and our very own family reunion..


ATMOSPHERE:
- The resort was a perfect paradise!
- The views were awesome..accurate shots from their websites..
-Beautiful verandas/garden, swimming pool, picturesque even at night..palm trees and hammock were amazing!
- The bar at the pool was great!
- Very helpful and friendly staff..All smiles considering we were a big group with parents and children who can get grumpy at times.
- Food was great. Breakfast specially the bacon was crispylicious!
- Mr. H (manager) was very accommodating, friendly, funny, responsible, and an awesome manager. He was very approachable, smart, and has a great understanding of the filipino culture irregardless of his foreign background. Some may misjudge him but his leadership is one that is realistic, honest, and well balanced. He does the best he can and shares his good knowledge wholeheartedly. Thank you Sir for making our stay enjoyable and well worth it!
-Mixed crowd..families, couples,singles..quiet retreat for nature lovers, they have playground, and other activities (pool table, dart board) available.

TRANSPO:
-shuttle service is free at the hotel.Tricycles are available everywhere.10-20 pesos per head.
-a walk to the white beach (depending on your pace it can be 10-30mins)..shortcuts available too at the back of the hotel! I like the exercise and how I can have a glimpse of the lifestyle in Boracay...not just the beach but also the talipapas and locals..
-We came from Kalibo airport which is farther (2hours drive) to Caticlan. Highly recommendable to go straight to Caticlan to avoid the 2hr bus ride. Caticlan is a more expensive airticket but minus the 2hour bus/van transfer fees.Specially if you have a short stay.

ACCOMMODATIONS+AMENITIES:
-awesome kitchen staff..very accommodating..Couldn't ask for any better service..Its worth the 10-15mins wait bec. of the quality of the food and smiles from the waitresses.
-Best German beer ever!Bar was great!
-BBq was delicious..breakfast was always perfect. You can wakeup at 6am or 4pm no problem..
-Rooms were very clean..No major issues/disturbances..Public areas were spic and span..
-The management and staff will do everything to make your stay most enjoyable and refreshing..


Wish you all the best in your hunt for the best getaway!

And Thanks to all the staff and management of Paradise Bay! Mr. "H" all the best to you!

After reading some of the other reviews, I would have to agree that the management at Paradise Bay is a bit of a problem. 'H' I believe his name is, always makes you feel like he is doing a favor for you. He even recommended that we eat this 'special steak' from Australia, which was quite pricey. We reluctantly ordered it for dinner. All we got was a simple cooked steak with some steamed vegetables. It was a huge disappointment after he talked about how great it is and how he is so surprised that the price is so cheap.

I sensed some problems between either the guests and management or the management and employees. Regardless, it was not a comfortable situation and we were happy to be out of there in our short 2 day stay.

Our air conditioner was so loud that we couldn't sleep with it on. The lights in the room were so dim that we couldn't read past sunset.That being said, the view was quite nice and the balcony was enjoyable.

It took a long time to get down to the White Beach. It is a bit of an annoyance, so we would try to only go to the Beach one time in a day and stay there until night.

JR the bartender was very friendly and a good man. Aside from him, I felt like most people that worked there, including the management were scheming to get more money out of us by getting us to go to their 'friends' for boat tours, and scuba diving.

Overall, I would recommend staying at a different hotel.

We came to Paradise Bay resort after having stayed in quite a lot of hotels in the Visayas. This was our last stop before Manilla and over flight home to Norway. We where met by a very nice young staffmember at the ferrie at Caticlan and from this very first meeting we found the staff and managment very friendly, helpful and proffesional. The management helped us book the airticket from Caticlan and hotelroom in Manila.
The room was very nice and very clean and the food was plentiful and tasty. In fact we almost felt like "beeing home" in this small and cosy hotel.
Since the hotell is not on the White beach, but a very short distance from the beach, we had a nice short walk to the beach every morning and a short ride back in the evening. At the beach we had our free sunbeds at the White beach diver.
We enjoyed our stay at the Paradise Bay very much! Kari & Anne
