“Great place! Coming back in 2014!”
Reviewed 12 April 2013

We stayed here not too long ago for our honeymoon and it was GREAT. Can't say anything else but the cleanliness and friendliness of staff are superb. They directed us to the places and restaurants that are excellent in the area. theres no view but it doesnt matter. Coming back definitely!

We really enjoyed our stay at Island Jewel Inn. While the hotel is not located directly on the beach, it is only a 1 minute walk to reach the beach at Station 3. Being located at station 3 makes for a much quieter and peaceful stay then if you were at Station 2. Less people and less noise definitely made for a more enjoyable vacation. On top of this, we really enjoyed the staff who offered us a welcome drink upon arrival. Edgar and the other hotel staff were extremely helpful and willing to give us any information that we requested. I will definitely stay there again on a future trip.

my family and I stayed at Island Jewel Inn for the first time in Boracay, and I must say that we made a right choice. I can't recommend enough this place for their brilliant service, in fact far better than some of the expensive and 5 star hotel we have stayed in other countries. Our room hasn't got the luxury like an expensive hotels but this was what we paid for, we are happy that they are always comfortably cleaned everyday. We are lucky to stay on this place as it was quiet, and we just have to walk for 3 mins, and we are in the most beautiful white sandy beach I've ever seen on our travel, a value a value for money for a relaxing holiday!!! Thank you Island Jewel for looking after us, keep it up and we definitely be going back and recommend you to our friends and family.

Room Tip: The rooms at the end of the building is better, you have your own veranda and you can shot the door.

This hotel was at the end of boat station 3 the road it was located on traffic such as motorbikes and tricycles wasn't allowed within 50 metres of the place so if you have heavy luggage such as we did it was a big struggle as there were no porters to help
There was no breakfast included either and the price of 2300 pesos was way more than it was worth
The room was very small the tv was tiny about the size of an iPad there was no toilet tissue holder on the wall thus my toilet tissue got soaked every time we showered and the worst thing of all is that when my girlfriend and I made love the mattress moved so much she almost fell out the open window when we changed position we both ended up falling into the bathroom as the mattress was just laid on a fixed bed funny to you maybe but to me and my girl not at all impressed

Nice rooms, every day cleaning and fresh towels. Very nice staff. Close to the beach. If you want à place away from the crowd en noise this is à good place. Had breakfast twice, which was good, but the restaurant needs à little bit more coseyness.

The room was nice and clean with a/c.
The staff was really friendly and happy to help. Peter even help us to call AirPhil Express to solve our plane ticket issue.
Quiet place (no noise and circulation) but close to the beach, restaurant and bar... Just perfect!

Room Tip: Don't use Island Jewel Inn for direction, ask for Angol Plaza.

(Update) The Island Jewel continues to be a clean and modern option for staying near Boracay White Beach boat station 3. The government fee has increased to P400 to cross to Boracay from P300 last year. Trike from the pier to Angol Road Island Jewel is still P100/trike (only P20/person at the gas station across the pier). More good restaurants have opened up in station three near Angol Road this year. There is also two places with live acoustic music. You still have to go 3km to station one for the fire dancers. The Island Jewel requires cash and no longer accepts credit cards. The room wall safe is more important now. You can not snorkel from the beach at Angol Point this year because the algae is over an inch thick!!!! You can not even see the bottom the ocean the green is so dark.

NOTE THIS SERIOUS PROBLEM: White Beach is 4kms of green algae slime during the 2013 peak season. The slime extends 10 meters from the waters edge and make swimming impossible. Some people who have tried to swim have gotten ear infections. You can not even walk with your feet in the water without getting a sick feeling in you stomach. This is a man made environmental problem which everyone on the island is denying. White Beach has gone from a top 5 world beach to a bottom 5 during the 2013 peak season. There was no algae at boat station 3 last year at this time.......
