“Looks great on the outside (only)”
Reviewed November 3, 2012

I stayed here between 29 October 2012 to 1 November 2012. I arrived at 2:30pm, check in was at 3pm. They didn't have our rooms ready until 3:30pm.

Family friendly atmosphere with mostly Koreans staying at this resort. I would say 90% of the people staying at this resort are Korean.

The resort looks great on the outside, especially at night with all the lights by the pool. However, the decor of the rooms looked like I was back in the early 90s. They didn't even have LCD TVs and the toilet was dark and somewhat mouldy. (I attached some images)

At the time we were staying; another hotel was being built next to the resort. The construction workers would stand around and stare at the women swimming in the pool from above. (i attached an image of the construction site)
If you have a room by the pool, make sure to close your curtains. In the evenings, the construction workers could look into the rooms as it was dark outside and the lights in the rooms were lit. Every night, I saw about 8 - 10 construction workers standing around waiting to see unsuspecting women get changed!

The view from balcony was great as it looked down the pool but the view from our hotel door didn't look like a resort... lots of trash and it was a furniture making store operated by the locals. They were operating machinery at 7am everyday so that woke everybody up (see image attached)

You will get better value elsewhere. All you will be paying for is the location.

During my recent visit to Boracay, I stayed at the Boracay Garden Resort located in White Beach Station 2. It is a pretty huge beachfront property in a prime location. What I enjoyed most during my stay is the relaxing atmosphere of the resort. We arrived quite early and good thing our room is ready so we were able to check-in right away. I liked the room that was assigned to us. It's spacious and clean. Moreover, it offers a great view of the pool and the restaurant. I'm also impressed that the resort staff are able to attend to our needs immediately. In my case, a blow dryer, haha! I would definitely recommend this place to friends.

Room Tip: Request for the rooms near the pool.

the hotel was nice, the pool great but all in all it just was't worth the price. it was a bit of a walk to get to the beach and our booking was for a room with two beds but was given one king. had to pay for the room up front cash or credit with an added 5% charge. the furnishings were to big for the room and in poor shape. the shower had very little pressure. and no water in the room to drink. if you are traveling with your family or young children i would recomend it, but if you are younger and just there to have a good time with friends keep looking there are much better options.

I won a free vacation to boracay from work. we were booked to this hotel for 3 days and two nights. Boat transfer was smooth but when we came to the hotel we dont have any rooms yet. We arrived quite early. Well i went diving and went back after lunch. Room was quite nice and clean. The free breakfast and dinner buffet was quite good.

Stayed with my fiancee on this place. Our room was just beside the pool. The room and toilet was superb. Been to places and I should say one of the best place to stay. Breakfast was great. The staff was helpful and friendly. If we will be back together in Boracay, the place is the right place for us. Thumbs up!!

Pleasantly surprised at the size of the room. It's bigger than the 5 star hotel we stayed in manila. We loved the gardens and the pools and the little cabanas beside the pool. Selection of food at the breakfast buffet is fantastic. Great variation each day...we were there for 6 nights and each day there is something new to eat. The hotel is like a paradise from the busy boracay beach side and it's just a very short walk to the beach. You have the best of both worlds - the exciting night life of boracay and the serenity and peace of the hotel once you come into its gardens through a corridor that is currently being renovated. Don't get put off by the renovations as you barely hear the noise or see the workers working in it. Its a great place to come home too after a busy day of snorkeling, beach swimming, island hopping, night life etc.

We found the staff friendly and goes out of their way to please you. We asked what's the weather like the last few days during breakfast and next minute we know Joshua the supervisor handed us a printed weather chart. The reception ladies have been so helpful and accommodating too.

We immensely enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend this resort especially to families becuase of its space and safe pool for kids.

Room Tip: Choose ground floors for pool access or first floors with easy access to pool

We stayed here for 3 nights in June. The staff was exceptionally courteous and helpful from the moment we checked in. We had a 2-bedroom family unit on the 3rd floor. Room was spacious but oddly designed. The breakfast buffet was superb esp. the Pinoy dishes and provide a variety of foods. The resort is a short distance from the beach but away from the beach vendors and traffic. The pool was beautiful and the pool side bar was a nice feature.
