Reviewed December 26, 2013

The wifi doesn't reach the room. I haven't been to the other resorts but there are roaches and other bad insects in the bathroom.. The room we got didn't look as comfortable as the photos. And the AC isn't cool enough.. But I guess, that's why the price is cheap. Thank god it's beach front and near activities. Lesson learned.

i really don't do much international travel so i really learned my lesson with this hotel. without hurricane Yolanda, this hotel would have received a higher rating but that didn't happen. what did happen was the hotel lost primary power and had to use its own generator and to save money they were very judicious with its use. talk about suffering........

So here's the low-down...................

PROS : great selection of cable channels, right on the beach

CONS : weak shower water pressure, table but no chair, no hooks or chest of drawers to put
away or hang our clothes, small 10"tv, hard pillows, no bed sheets on arrival, breakfast
did not match picture; it consisted daily of two pieces of toast, a slice of ham, and two
thumbnail size pieces of jam and butter respectively.

Really, there is nothing to be enthusiastic about La Isla Bonita. The place has a run-down appearance, and I simply did not feel comfortable. The paper-thin bed sheet over a plastic-covered matress, the lack of pillow sases, the shower which needed repair, the weak AC, the dampness - staying here was not really pleasant. While the staff at the reception was friendly, they were not vrey customer service oriented. I cannot understand why they did not even sell water there if there was none in the rooms. Also, they could have checked for me if the ferries they told me about were actually scheduled for my day of departure (I took their word for it, was at the Caticlan pier at 8:45 for the 10:00 ferry only to find out that both the 10:00 and 12:00 ferries had been cancelled). It's a bit sad that staff did not even make the effort of one quick call to check. I am fully aware that on an island as overpriced as Boracay you cannot expect much from accommodation that is half-way moderately priced. Still it would feel wrong to give more than 2  stars and I will not consider coming again. By the way, I cannot help but notice that 7 of the 12 "excellent" reviews were written by Tripadvisor members who have written just one single review ever - makes you wonder how many of those are not just fabricated.

This hotel located in Station 3 of Boracay is really a good choice.
Reasons why I give perfect rating:
1. Beach Front in a quite location for a good night sleep
2. Walking Distance to Station 2 for party people
3. Just a few steps to 'D Mall in Boracay where you can shop around
4. Behind the hotel, few steps are the small shops in Talipapa - affordable price
5. Very affordable room rates for a Family Room - USD30/night only *wink* (non peak)
6. Staffs are very professional, accommodating, service oriented, smiling.
7. Spacious Rooms with Private Balcony where you may hang your cloth to dry
8. There is kitchen if you want to cook for additional fees
9. Plus the Genuine service I experience from them. They send by courier my personal belongings which I left in my room during check out. I just call them and we communicated by sms for the details and when they said, they're gonna send the next day, it happened and received the item on time. It's their action that really counts. This experience really give me a good impression for this hotel.

Thanks for the job well done to all staff and management for this hotel.

Keep up the good work.

Will definitely comeback here if I will visit again Boracay next time and would recommend this place for anyone who want a beachfront rooms but not expensive.

Conveniently located "Mom and Pop" styled smaller hotel right on White Beach, just steps away from complimentary beach chairs and the water, but not too close to all of the late night hubbub. Staff is always friendly, free wi-fi, quaint but adequately furnished room accommodations, with your choice of aircon or fan only. And Joe and Myrna are the best of activity hosts and service providers!

We couldn't extend our stay at our previous hotel so we looked for another, hence we came across la Isla bonita. We availed a fan room since we just wanted a place for our things, bathe, change and wait for our transfer while we enjoy the rest of our time in Boracay we decided to have the island boat tour. Anyway, on our super short stay... The room was clean though it looks very old. The bed mattress was soggy, linens was clean, pillows was small and thin. The restroom was spacious, no hot water from the faucet only from the shower and the water pressure was no good. Small tv, bamboo furnitures (dresser and chair and cabinet) small fridge with water and sodas for fee of course. Attendants are friendly and accommodating. The place is in station 3 and located near the boat rentals and where sea activities were. but if you want to swim and enjoy the sand i advise you to go near station 2. Massages are abundant there also. All in all, its nice for a 7hr stay. Hehe!

The staff was really cool and the atmosphere was amazing, the place is gorgeous with some trees in its patio, really peculiar. Location was great as its beachfront and literally 5 minutes walk from all the night action, I actually loved not staying right in the middle of the bar scene as I enjoying having a good nights sleep and we couldnt hear a thing from our room.The room we got upstairs was actually good so ppl complaining about noise from other guests downstairs should ask for one room upstairs. There was a swimming pool being built when we stayed there. ONe thing though is if you arrive from the ferry by bike taxi try and see if they take you straight there because they'll usually leave you on the mainroad and you have to go through the alleyways in the market(some pretty cheap prices there by the way) and mix that with a bit of rain and little mud plus tiredness of one whole day travelling...

Room Tip: Ask for an upstairs one
