I was with our 80 year old mom and 2 brothers last October when we went to Boracay. I booked the room directly. The room that was given to us was at the ground level, directly facing the garden. I say, good ambience because of garden atmosphere. This hotel is located at Station 1, near an Andok's resto by the road, and near the church too. By the beachfront, it's closest to the well-known bars, walking distance to Jona's shakes, and walking distance to the D'Mall.
The room at Boracay Gold Crowne is big, they placed two (2) queen-sized beds and one (1) single bed for the 4 of us There's a cable tv set, mini ref, coffee-tea-making facility in the room. They replenish bottled water everyday, too. The bathroom is also big with cabinets for clothes, and there's a safety deposit box. The ground level rooms lead to the garden
The hotel was recently acquired by Astoria Plaza and they told me they have made complete renovations on the rooms. Linens were sparklingly clean and white, the towels, too with the distinct Astoria quality - as I have stayed at Astoria Plaza quite often. The staff is overly-solicitous, taking care of our every need. They make up the rooms every day, and they change sheets and towels on a daily basis too. I felt safe and secured in this place. There is an entrance by the road, which is guarded, and there is entrance by the beachfront, where you will enter the dining area and their reception area. They said there are still a lot of things that they need to put up like the lounges in the beach area.
Every night, there is buffet dinner by the beachfront. Singer-entertainers livens the area. The price is fair enough. There are choices of fish, pork, beef, chicken for grilling, there's salad, pasta, other entrees, fruits, and the dinner goes with bottomless iced tea or lemonade. The price of the hotel room includes breakfast, but it's a so-so. On my second and third days, I went at other nearby restos for breakfast.
I would surely love to go back to this hotel.
