If you want to be at the center of everything that's happening in Boracay Island... then you stay at Boat Station 2 and among the resorts in this area, Red Coconut Beach Resort would be one of the best options you'll have.
What we loved most about the resort is it's location. It is at the very heart of Boracay. You get restaurants, convenience stores, shops, and bars around it. It has the best location plus it's a beach front resort. They also have their own beach beds & beach umbrellas which is free for use for hotel guests (of course).
The room we got has a nice view of the beach. It was fronting the pool and had a veranda. It was perfect since we didn't want to smoke in our room or go down just to have a quick smoke. The room was very nice and the bathroom was perfect. The best was very nice too. It was perfect actually.
The resort restaurant was amazing too so is the resort bar. Room service was very good too though they are only available until 10pm. The complimentary breakfast was good enough but it's best if you try out other places around the area too.
We did have a bad experience with the resort though.
The resort made us wait for 2 hours before we got to check-in. The reason was that we got there early. Check-in time was 1pm and we were there around 11am. We did let them know ahead of time that we'll get there before 12 noon, hoping that we'd avoid the wait but no, we still had to wait. It turned out that our room was not yet ready. What pissed us more was the fact that we didn't feel any sense of urgency from the resort staffs in preparing our room.
So I guess, if you want to stay in this resort, make sure to plan your arrival time very well.
Overall, it was a good stay. It could have been perfect but things happen. Some resorts just can't perfect customer service.
