“Great value for great location”
Reviewed March 22, 2014 via mobile

Stayed here in October 2013 having attended a family wedding in Cagayan de Oro, flew to Iloilo and got a taxi to the port to get to Boracay, next time would probably fly rather than taxi - we flew back from Kalibo to Manila. Anyways booked this hotel as our extended stay had us on a budget. We got a great deal online and initially booked in for a couple of nights as we were apprehensive of the cheap price!
We found the rooms clean and comfortable with good bathroom, it's a pity there's not more light in the rooms as I found them quite dark- not that we spent too much time in the room!
Great location on the beach and plenty of bars and restaurants nearby ! Didn't eat in the hotel but had drinks and juices and these were very good value compared to some of the bars around.

Free wifi in the lobby, lovely courteous staff, even printed airline tickets for me, great security!

The only issue we had were a regular stream of ants in the bathroom sink area which although sprayed regularly always seemed to be a problem.

Despite this we extended our stay and would recommend for the budget traveller !

My family and friends have checked in at this hotel for 3 times already and we are not dissappointed everytime we came back because we make sure that we are booked at the executive wing. This hotel is pretty much average than the rest of the 3 star hotel in boracay but because the executive wing was relatively new when we booked way back 2009, everytime we came back, we book here for convenience and familiarity. The booking comes with breakfast which is ordinary and a dinner buffet which is just okay considering its free. Situated at station 2, this hotel is recommended for those who wants to be where the action is at night.

Terrible experience do not go here. Massive amount of people on cheap package tours. There was banging from renovations literally from 8 am until 6 pm everyday. You cannot actually use the free wi fi. It's just a cynical rip off of tourists which most of Boracay is anyway.

Nothing special about this place. Typical hotel room with beds, aircon and normal restroom. Friendly hotel staff though. Avail their breakfast buffet and I'm kinda dissappointed. Food was pretty the same everyday. You have to start the day waiting for table and food to be refilled for you to be able to have breakfast. Could use a lot of improvement!

the trip in from the airport was great, we had the whole bus to share with two other couples. then

a short boat ride to a pier ,where a nice van picked us up to the hotel for check-in . They were

very nice and helped us to our room , it was nice and clean . We went straight for the beach.

The warm white sand and blue water was right out side the front of the resort. you will pass

the pool and dinning area on your way there. They had a shaded area and Beach chairs for

you to use and helper to get you a drink from the hotel , It was great relaxing stay, and the

morning breakfast was an added bonus .

Indeed a budget hotel but the very friendly staff is doing the best to make you feel confortable. Besides the staff a plus was the clean and spacious room and the proximity to the beach. Weak point to consider to improve: the too small breakfast restaurant
