Our 2nd time in Boracay and we chose The Tides. We arrived at the hotel almost sunset. The front desk greeted us and immediately gave us cold hand towels and juice, (which by the way lessen our exhaustion from the trip) and informed us that they were preparing the room for us. Me and my husband stayed there for 4days, I thought it was worth it. Please do not expect a grand treatment as I think it was only average but acceptable. Although I must say that the staff weren't all very friendly & accommodating. Some greeted us along the way, some did not care.
The Room- I thought it was okay, nothing too fancy. But I love that the essential room was spacious more than what I expected and what added up to my joy was the balcony. The water flow and A/C was working right. Basing from the old reviews, I think the hotel has just been renovated cause the walls looked recently painted.
The Location- Of course, nothing compare to the beachfront hotels, but I thought The Tides was a really nice location. Not far from the shoreline, just about a minute or 2. In the heart of D'mall where you can eat and hang out anywhere.
The Soltice- Where the pool & bar is located. We've only stayed here during evenings, so I cannot attest to what others say about this part which some claim it needed renovation. But I've got to say, I enjoyed it! They offer BUY1 TAKE1 drinks, food was okay, sound was great, not crowded and about the right time to relax.
All in all, I like our stay at the Tides Hotel. But if I were to pick again, I'd probably come back. One thing that I think needs improvement is their service. Being accommodating and friendly sometimes relieves all hotel stress/issue.
