“Great Place to Stay in Boracay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2014

We stayed at Jony's for 8 days and had a very enjoyable time there. Wonderful location, the room was good quality, the staff were superb and the food and service in the restaurant excellent. In common with some other hotels in Boracay, Jony's describes itself as a resort, which it is not. It is a good quality hotel with detached restaurant and bar on the beach, with no other facilities I would expect to find in a 'resort' such as a pool, gym, etc. The hotel is 30 metres from the beach but separated by busy small main road, which you need to cross to get to the restaurant/bar and the lovely beach. All in all Jony's is a comfortable, clean and enjoyable place to stay, if somewhat over-priced for what is basically small hotel. However, you are paying for the location and Boracay is expensive compared to other locations in Philippines! The rooms could do with comfy armchairs or sofa for when watching TV! Negatives about the area are that the 'town' along the main road itself is scruffy and dirty. God knows what the government do with the tourist tax dollars they make!

Jony's is in a great location. The rooms are clean, restaurant offers good food and staff are hospitable, courteous and friendly. To give you an idea how great their staff was, one of the staff at the restaurant was gracious and mindful enough to assist my wife and I with one of our children needing help at the time. It was a small gesture on his part but his actions spoke volumes.

Great place, great staff, great price.

We've been to different hotels in bora and even tried the high end hotels like Shang and Discovery but the moment we experienced Jony's we finally found a home. We are very particular with customer service because our family business focuses on this. We must say Jony's has an exceptional and world class hospitality to offer. Cant say no more but Thank You! We will surely be back again by April 19-22 this year - this time with the love of my life. Thank you Milez Andrade for fixing our reservation this April. Excited to stay again at my home in Boracay. :-)

The staff were very friendly. We had a little incident with airport pickup, but they handled it very professionally and in addition they upgraded us to La Concha suite, which was the best. Their restaurant (food, staff etc) is also very good. Location is perfect, not in station 2 (which is very noisy part) and at the same time only couple of minutes walk to station 2.

This was our first visit to Boracay and Jony's was the perfect location. It's situated on the perfect stretch of beach with a view of Willy's Rock and just a short walk to where all the action is. Make sure to make friends with the staff, especially Tony, who reserved beach chairs and umbrellas for us. The rooms are comfortable (not high end), but you will not be spending too much time in the rooms anyway. You do have to cross the main street to get to the beach and restaurant, but there is always a crossing guard to help you. The food at the restaurant was great! Who knew you could find great Mexican food in the Philippines! P.s. Be sure to also check out the Greek restaurant at D-Mall!

Jony's is located near the northwestern end of White Beach, where things are less congested and a bit more relaxed than at the center of the island. The hotel and restaurant essentially straddle the island's main road, which makes getting to the beach, getting a ride, or getting to the restaurant perfectly simple. The rooms are large and comfortable, clean and well equipped, and modernly furnished. The staff is exceptional, setting a standard that had my small group of friend insisting that we return to Boracay, and to Jony's. The staff quickly knew our individual names, offered advice and services readily, and showed a positive attitude and level of enthusiasm that was refreshing. Every question got answered, every request was quickly and effectively worked, and every visit to the front desk reminded us that we were on vacation, and that the people working at Jony's sincerely wanted us to have a fantastic time. The hotel and staff delivered in the most professional, polite, and competent way, over and over again. We salute them, and look forward to seeing them again.

My husband and I stayed here back in 2009, they were very nice and the rooms are very clean. They even helped my husband surprise me with a romantic dinner on the beach with a guy serenading us + cake + yummy dinner. It was what made us want to come back to them! =)

My husband and I returned in 2010, however, we were slightly disappointed by one of the "gay waiters" at the Jony's restaurant. At first, he was very nice. However, when we woke up a little late during our 2nd breakfast there, he refused to give us breakfast since we did not make it in time for the "cut off". He kept making faces at us (made us very uncomfortable) since we still insisted on claiming our free breakfast since there were hardly any customers at the resto anyway. In fact, it was only me and my husband at the resto!!! If it wasn't for this BAKLA / GAY waiter, we would have had another mind blowing time.

Currently, I just booked another stay at Jony's, we're going back this 2014. A bit of a misunderstanding with the reservations officer - Milez since I clearly specified over the phone to charge the full amount to our credit card so that we didn't have to worry about paying the rest upon arrival... I kept saying it over and over again over the phone and she seemed to be in a hurry to process the transaction. I also insisted on staying on the phone since I had called 2 weeks ago asking for details, she promised to send them but DID NOT. Which is why I had to call back - she processed my payment over the phone and promised to email me back in 15 mins. Two (2) hours later, the email finally arrives. I discover that she only processed the down payment. I had to call back AGAIN. (long distance I might add). =(

Anyways, little by little I'm getting slightly disappointed with Jony's services. I was really WOW'ed when we first stayed there but quality seems to be going down. Hopefully they will keep their excellent service as this is the only reason why we ONLY think of Jony's each time we go to Boracay, EVEN IF THEIR rates are bit STEEP, we still go back because of the clean rooms and the yummy food. I guess they just need to pick the staff they hire.

Room Tip: If they have rooms available, they will upgrade you to KING SIZED bed for free. So ask them about th...
