After spending three days at the fantastic Pinjalo Resort on Boracay I feel compelled to write this review. Usually I don't bother as I figure I have paid for the service and that's that!! This time is different - my infant son, my wife, her teenage sister and myself shared the incredibly spacious Deluxe Suite - though relatively expensive for Boracay - it was genuinely like a home away from home. Large bedroom and bathroom on the same level as a beautiful airey living area and dining area with a large round table with six chairs. The spacious well equipped kitchen had everything you'd need - rice cookers, good sized fridge, 4 burner gas stove/oven, and with an infant, the incredibly convenient microwave. Upstairs was a large bedroom and bathroom - like the bedroom downstairs with a split system aircon and cable tv. Breakfast was included in the rate.
Now for the main reason for writing this: As i was about to board my Airphilexpress plane I realised i had left my passport in the inroom safe-sending me into a panic as it would make it a bit difficult to take my flight back to Australia without it. With help from the airline staff a phone call was made and whilst time meant my passport didn't reach me before leaving Caticlan (local airport) it was on the next flight - being delivered to me at Manila airport an hour after landing.
Many thanks to Management and Staff at Pinjalo Resort and it's sister property Calypso Resort for such profesionalism - I am very gratefull.
