What can I say, we spent quite a few nights at Boracay. It was nice, but i was begining to get tired of the same old restaurants and bars.
My wife and I have been here for 5 hours and I must say I'm delighted at the quality and service of the Golden Palm Resort and of the Alona beachfront. Yes I can judge a place in just a few hours. We have extensively travelled the world and stayed at many resorts from budget to luxurious. I've never felt this at home, and relaxed and that is not because of the extemely cheap and well made cocktails that the bar staff can make.
I have instantly fell in love with this resort which has only happened once before and that was at the Excellence Resort in Riviera Maya (Cancun- a 5* ultra AI resort).
The room is immaculate and of a very high standard. It is like the pictures on the website.
If visiting Alona beach I would highly recommend this resort. No, it is not beach front, and quite frankly that is a bonus. The pool area is lovely and well maintained. It is a 2min walk to the beach, which brings you out at the end of Alona, just next to Philippine fun divers and Lost Horizon resort. From here you get to enjoy the serenity of the resort and excellent bar area, yet are just a short stroll to the beach and the extensive choice of restaurants.
There are afew dogs which live here, but are extremely friendly and well behaved (i am a cat person) If you pet them you will have a friend for life.
oh yeh, the music at the bar is pretty good too :)
