I've known Boracay 18 years ago when it really deserved to be called Paradise. Today, with the massive construction work that has converted this once idyllic island into a mini-city, it is very rare to find peace and quiet. Sur was recommended to us by a friend. It is on the island's Station One with its own beachfront and far from the bustle of Station Two's cafes, bars, restos and stores. The resort is small but because of its size and design, it felt more like home than a hotel. When we arrived, I dreaded the construction work at the back and I earnestly asked for a quiet room. They gave us one that I had to vacate the next minute because of incessant hammering but they did not hesitate to upgrade us to a bigger room, far from the construction noise. The staff were so accommodating, ready to please and to be of service. The resort has clean rooms, simply decorated with modern amenities like tv and airconditioning. I relished the fresh-smelling bedsheets and towels that were changed everyday. Breakfast is correct with options for omelettes and pancakes. There is no restaurant in this resort but they have a small menu for sandwiches, pasta and noodles - perfect when you crave for light meals or when you don't really feel like going out. Meal prices were half the price of the neighboring resort. If Sur continues the way it is (with more rooms as soon as the new wing is finished and some minor renovation work in the old wing), I'm sure that its one of the best places to stay in Boracay. And in an island where the best things are free - the white sand beach and the magnificent skyline, Sur offers the best value for money for accommodations.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Peaceful and personal, Sur lets you experience the gentle side of bustling Boracay. Airy open spaces and gardens. Clean, cozy rooms. Friendly service. And a premium beachfront location at Station One, the island's finest stretch of white beach. It's no wonder our guests tell their friends about us, and keep coming back themselves. ... more less
