Island Jewel is situated in Station 3, which i felt was the more rustic and quiet part of White Beach. It is a minute's walk to the beach, and in case your trike driver doesn't know where it is, it's right next to Tree House Beach Resort.

It's about a 20min walk / 45min stroll to D'Mall, but if you're loathe to walk that far, Station 3 has great spots for food and massages! We loved that we were incredibly close to good shakes at Coco Loco, delicious tempura at Nagisa (try the ampalaya too!), had a cheap foot massage at Yasuragi, breakfast at Cowboy Cocina, and an amazing 4 hour massage/pedicure at Bella Isa.

Island Jewel's room was clean, and the water heater worked fine. They do not provide shampoo/conditioner, but just soap so bring the necessary toiletries. They provide fresh towels everyday, which is great. Wifi also worked - it's not super fast, but the connection held strong throughout our stay (we were in room 21, the 2nd floor).

Our power tripped on our 1st night, and there's no phone to call the front desk. Thank goodness my husband could recall where the power box was, so we managed to get the power back. The aircon is also a little weak, took awhile for the room to cool down and be less musty, and blankets were thin and pillows lumpy... but we slept really well! We were in Island Jewel a total of 2 nights, and it was a pleasure.

I also have to give thanks to Vanessa the receptionist/manager (? i have no idea but seems like she was running the place, since i didn't see anyone else) who was always smiling and offering to help us make calls to confirm our bookings with local tours. She was always quick to reply my emails, even when i was simply asking how the weather was like over in Boracay.

All in all, the stay in Island Jewel was cheap and the standard was definitely better than most other venues with a similar price point. Give them a try!

Room Tip: If Wifi is important to you, let Vanessa know when you're making your booking.

We enjoyed our stay at Island Jewel Inn. It was very clean and organized. We loved how close it was to the beach. Although Boat Station 2 has more going on than Boat Station 3, we enjoyed the quietness of the beach during the day (and it's only about a 10-15 minute walk to D'Mall, etc.). The only issues were the wi-fi and the fact that they didn't take credit cards. I would definitely stay at Island Jewel again.

PROS:
• queen-sized beds in all rooms
• less than a minute walk to the beach
• tours and airport transfer services available for P510 per person (hotel to Kalibo airport)
• reasonable room rates
• very quiet and clean place
• welcome drinks upon check-in
• free WiFi
• clean, spacious toilet with complete toiletries; heater available
• A/C, cable TV, security vault and fridge available in room
• friendly, accommodating staff

CONS:
• they do not accept credit cards
• no double or twin beds, extra bed costs P500 per night
• a bit far from restaurants, the nearest are Tree House Restaurant and Nagisa Coffee Shop
• no pool or gym (although I'm not really after these)
• poor WiFi signal inside our room, it goes on and off when able to connect; Little Pearl (inn) nearby has a better signal that our gadgets are able to recognize it instead of our own hotel's
• the room's clean but I noticed that our bed sheet's got a stain on it, but I didn't have it replaced as I did not want anyone going in the room until we're gone (my preference most of the time, nothing to do with the staff as they all seem trustworthy)
• no beach view, only other hotels or trees to see out the window or the balcony

Great value in a quiet spot 1 minute walk from the beach. Clean comfortable rooms with Wi Fi.. If that's all you're after book this place. Vanessa at the front desk is lovely, lots of help and always greets you with a smile. Special mention to the night watchman, he is a legend
