Buras links and advice are good.

You will really love Boracay. The beaches are better than Phuket and from reading other posts much better than Bali also. It was ranked No 1 beach destination in Asia by tripadvisor. See the below link:

tripadvisor.com/TCDestinations-cBeachSun-g2

Boracay is not really a place to shop. You could possibly do this in Manila.

Its more a place to chill out do lots of water and beach related activities.

chill out - boracay. yes you can -- but it also parties very very hard....

shopping is basically white sand street and some malls. manila is better and cheaper as tommo says. cebu is cheaper again - but not as good.

the regency is central, but its huge - 3 pools etc. breakfast is good but for dinner i'd eat down the street. stops the monotony of the same food. plus it's cheaper down the street.
