Here's my review: Pros > Clean > Affordable > Spacious room > With pool > With playground (good for kids) Cons > A bit far to the beach front (but back entrance is accessible if you're taking a tricycle) > No bidet (suggests to improve restroom facilities, kinda outdated)

Best place to stay if you want to have a nice hotel away from the noise of the beach. Very affordable. We booked a Double Room with a friend. The room is so big compared to other hotels equal of its price. Bed so comfy. Few minutes away from the beach. Near to other amenities. Has a 24 hour swimming...

This is my 2nd trip to Boracay beach . First time stayed on a beach front hotel "Red Coconut" in station 2 of the 3 stations of Boracay island. It's nothing much at that moment living on the beach front, 2 minutes walk to the popular "D'Mall" which is the shopping/eating area of Boracay (actually there are some others but...

Tonglen is a great location to escape the hustle and bustle from the road and the beach. Family room was clean and comfortable. Hotel breakfast was quite ok, staff were very helpful when we needed to change a flight.

Tonglen is not connected to the actual beach. Guests have to walk down the main road and a narrow alley about 10-15 minutes in order to reach the beach. Some staff are very nice and helpful, and other staff were not as nice. Lock boxes are available at the front desk, but no safe was inside the actual room.

The location is central yet it is secluded enough to give its guests peace and quiet. Love that there is a garden within the property where guests can lounge around. It is simple, homey and basic but it is clean and well-kept. The only downside is the access to the beach area. It would be a lot more convenient if...

Everything is awesome, the room, the pool, the ambiance, the service and very affordable. Around 3-5mins walk to the beach front but still managable. The place is quiet and perfect for family, friends and couple.

The staffs are very accommodating. The room is always clean. Just a 5 minute walk from white beach. We haven't tried eating in their restaurant so i cant say something about their food. But they are just near the market and surrounded by other bigger restaurants. You will never get hungry in Boracay. I would definitely stay here again on...

This is our second time in Tonglen. The last was November 2015. We intentionally chose to stay again in this hotel despite higher prices (compared to when we booked last year). It still has been the best place to relax after a long day out. It truly is home away from home. I think they are in the process of...
