I made a last minute decision to continue with my trip despite my boyfriend's warning that the weather is not good amd that he is busy with work. I immediately contacted Island Jewel Inn and Vanessa was very much accomodating. Since my flight was delayed for more than 4 hours, I arrived in Boracay almost midnight and the guard assisred me to my room. The room was so clean and spacious. There is a small fridge with drinks. The location is so proper for me to stay and have a moment of reading. They also clean the room which is a nice thing. Ms Josie was so accomodating as well. It felt like home, really!

The room is very spacious my boyfriend loved the room and very serene place. Not too crowded but quite far from night life. Keep it up and they even adhere to my special requests. Great customer service , loved the rooms . My boyfriend also loved their cable service because he was able to watch FIFA games .

Room Tip: please add bidet for the bathrooms

We booked Island Jewel Inn as our accomodation a few weeks prior to our trip. Vanessa was very helpful in providing information when we asked for it, such as method of payment and weather conditions. After arrival, transfer to the hotel was smooth,as arrangements for land and sea transfer were made. The room was cozy with basic amenities, not for visitiors seeking luxury but a place we looked forward to retreat to after a day of activities. Clean bedsheets, comfy bed, clean room. Room service was offered daily. Location was rather quiet, but good if you like to be away from the nightlife of Station 2 for a good night's rest. Thumbs up! We would love to stay again should we revisit Boracay. Thanks Vanessa and the rest of the crew for making our vacation pleasant! :)

Island Jewel Inn is set in a nice garden just up from the beach in station 3. The staff were always friendly and helpful. The room was clean as was the bathroom. I would highly recommend this place.

It's location is about a 15 minute walk from the main area and this means that the beach Is less crowded and cleaner than station 2 and 1.

We arrived in Boracay with nothing booked and were dropped off in Station 3. We were shocked at the grotty rooms offered for 1600PHP and up. Just when we were about to give in and stay in one of them, I found Island Jewel. It was just what we were looking for. Very close to the beach, solidly built, clean rooms, comfy bed and lovely staff. Even got a free beer when checking in! WiFi worked ok most of the time but did go off from time to time. Free beach towels were available which was really helpful. The area is very nice and quiet, yes it is a looong walk down the beach to station 2 but we preferred staying in station 3 most of the time anyway. My only real complaint about Island Jewel is the extortionate cost of laundry - they charge per item, 35PHP for a T-Shirt and 40PHP for shorts was what I was told, but if you walk up to the road and turn left for 200m, there is a laundry shop which does it for 30-40PHP per kilo. However as there was that option nearby this is minor for me, and overall we loved staying at Island Jewel.

Room Tip: Check out a few before deciding, as some lack a balcony area outside. Also the rooms at the end have...

We had an memorable stay at island jewel Inn. It was located within station 3 which is relatively quiet and peaceful. The room is cozy and good for recharging your energy for the next day of fun-filled activities. Vanessa was really amazing as she arranged transport and activities for us despite such an short notice. She is extremely friendly and always assist us in need. Even though its away of the hustle and bustle of the beach, it was a great stay with nice people. Btw their breakfast is also delicious.

We had a great stay at Island Jewel. Vanessa was amazing with helping us through the booking, airport transfers and general info once we had arrived.
Island Jewel is perfectly located on the quiet station 3, this was just what we were were looking for- a resort close to the beach away from the crowds in station 2.
Would definitely recommend to couples :)
