Reviewed May 29, 2013

Guests come and go. Most especially during breakfast, it is full house. One has to be early at about 6 a.m. to get a table for the group.

The facilities are okay. The staff did their best to be of service but the in flock of guests during summertime, gives an uncomfortable stay. The locals said, it is best to be in Boracay mid June where the island paradise will not anymore be too crowded and... when the weather will be at its best sunny condition.

My family stayed at Family Suite Room, we stayed there for two nights and three days with my two kids, my husband and yaya. It was very spacious and comfortable. Modern facilities and with big bathroom and very clean sorroundings. The staffs were very accomodating. We arrived early in the hotel and were able to stay at our room ahead of check-in time without any hassles. The room is complete with all toiletries etc. We really enjoy the white sand which is in front of the hotel only. They also have a nightly performance of fire dance and native dances right beside the pool side which gives more attraction to the by passers. There are plenty of restaurants and souvenirs items beside the hotel, everything you need is right beside the hotel which is very advantageous to their guest. They also give proper briefing to their guest on their house rules. I also appreciate their honesty when we check-out my daughter left her knapsack in the room, the hotel staff inform us that we left the knapsack. I highly recommend this hotel to families going there

Room Tip: Corner suites are large and sunny very good for wet suites it will dry easily

After viewing hundrets of hôtels, one of my contact suggest that hotel. what a mistake.
This hotel is made for Asiatique and Philippinos, not for European nor American. Everything Genevieve 88 said about it is thru. I could not eat anything at all, this philippino food make me sick just looking at it. Noisy day and night in the coridors and outside, difficult . to have a good night sleep. 3000 php per night is ridiculous it Worth max 1500.
Unless you want to go in Boracay during the Holiday or El Ninö, don't reserve, visit the hôtels first, you will have better price and find a nice one, unless you can afford 200€ per night.

I loved how I didn't have to worry about my breakfast, lunch, and dinner for two days in Boracay. Our stay in this hotel covered it all already at a really reasonable price!

The room was average but clean. They had good supply of towels too. There's no WIFI signal in the rooms but WIFI is free in the dining area.

The hotel is also just by the beach front, no more need to ride just to enjoy the wonderful shores of Boracay!

We stayed in this hotel using deal vouchers --- hoping to really get a very good deal. We're very disappointed that the rooms booked were old, dirty and cramped. Wish we didn't get the voucher deal or the hotel booking at all. This is not located in Station 2 but rather in Station 3. Or a the very least, at the very end of Station 2. I thought to myself, I could be wrong about this reference. However, when I asked the tricycle drivers and other locals of the location of this hotel --- it's a unanimous Station 3.

Also, the sheets are obviously very old and scratchy. Most of the staff are under apprenticeship and thus the management will not perform turnover service without the hotel guest present. This is not practical at all. A regular hotel staff should do the supervision and not the hotel guest! Probably one of the ways in keeping the costs down by the management itself.

Didn't live up to the celebrity endorsements. Buffet breakfast are below par, unhealthy and took way too much time to replenish.

We booked two rooms and the management didn't consider giving us the one with an adjoining door, considering that they know that we are travelling together. They should have asked us beforehand since they know we have children in our group. Toilet unit leaked in one of our rooms, molds are found in both t&b. There's no ledge separating the shower area and the toilet area so the entire t&b will be flooded the entire time. I couldn't bear to take pictures --- depressing. I think we were booked in the old building.

Walk-way to the beach/pool/breakfast area seem to be reeking of something I don't want to know. This is not only bad for the guests but also to the environment.

Room Tip: I am getting a bit sad about my review so here are my tips: If you are a walk-in guest, try to chec...

Still with a delayed housekeeping service. Arranged for landtransfers with the hotel...the trip from the Kalibo airport to the resort is okay, with a private van as expected. But the trip back to the airport has been arranged with a public transport BUS. The thing was, we (20 from La Carmela) were almost transferred to another public transport bus to accommodate a bigger group (50 pax) local tourists at some station who requested for an exclusive transfer. Totally insane! We held our ground and refused to be transferred.

Nothing special about this hotel. It's right smack in the middle of the noisiest part of Boracay - Station 2. So if you are all for budget without any comfort (we had no hot water in the room and they wanted to charge us for ice brought to the room), this is ok. Otherwise, i would gladly pay more for a better hotel.

Our bath tub had molds along the side, the food is ordinary. Quality for money = if you can afford a few hundreds more, go somewhere else.
