The staff were uninterested and unhelpful. Upon check in they were waiting amongst themselves at who could avoid the guest the longest before having to get up and attend to us. Any time we went to reception their attitude was like it was a massive effort to do anything. Everyone looked fed up (like most of the staff everywhere in...

Although the staff was friendly the sanitary conditions where poor at best ; wi fi took more effort than it was worth and the food horrible . As I was in Boracay for 10 days I tried to do it on the cheap & paid dearly with piece of mind , comfort & a very bad stomach .

We'd been advised prior to our trip to Boracay to stay in Station 3, and we are glad we took this advice! We could walk to the crazy part of town, and then retreat to the comfort and quiet of Arwana down in Station 3. On arrival we were greeted by Paul and the team with fresh juice, a place...

If they haven't gave us an upgrade we would just rate this as 1 or 2 we booked a standard double room but we were upgraded automatically to a superior room which is not that bad. We saw our original room and it was a bit eerie looking. Location is perfect for people who are looking for privacy. The hotel...

If you're looking for a decent place to stay in Boracay at a budget and in a beach front hotel, then Arwana Hotel is perfect for you and your family.

We stayed in Arwana Hotel during my daughter's birthday celebration in Boracay. The pros: It's located in a more quiet part of Boracay (Station 3 to be specific) and is beach-front. Perfect for families! The rooms are quite comfortable too and very affordable. The cons: It's super far from restaurants. It has its own restaurant in the ground floor, but...

Our 4th stay at Arwana after 5 years shows how much this hotel/resort is improving and growing. The room was ready for us when we arrived. The roo. Has the basics: aircon, cable tv, hot/cold shower, toiletries, towels. My favorite is the thick mattress. Breakfast is still the same: many to choose from but I always get their rice meals....

Situated right on the beach, at boat station 3, on the more relaxed part of White Beach is hotel is a very good choice when it comes to price, service and locations. It's my favourite place to stay at Boracay.

The Arwana is a great place to stay. It is right on the beach at Station 3 - so slightly less commercial than the other stations - this I thing was a major plus factor. If you want the crowds, is a short walk up a palm lined path. Back to the hotel, the rooms are tiny, not a lot...
