The location of this hotel is pretty secluded with a massive property of villas. There are three pools but the newest and cleanest one is near the entrance. The other pools were a bit drab and in need a of renovation for my tastes. The beach is very private and value for money here is excellent.
I have to start off with how terrible the food was in this hotel. 50% of the things we ordered the waiter would come back and say it wasn't available. We wanted desert one night... they had zero desert. We wanted garlic shrimp every day we ordered we were told they would be available the following day. One time we ordered lobster shrimp pasta. It came with no lobster, watery unseasoned tomato sauce and WORST of all no lobster. I sent it back untouched and it was still on my bill. The breakfast buffet had what appeared to be 5 day oldwater melon as its only fruit selection. ROTTEN tomatoes and moldy bread!! I would highly highly reccomend this property if they could sort out this huge flaw.
The Dmall shuttle worked like a charm for us we never had any problems what so ever. The service getting around the hotel property however is another story... waiting 20 minutes for a shuttle to come take you to the beach (10 minute walk) was annoying. Instead of having gas powered vans per request they should just employ 2 golf carts who drive in a circle with a hop on hop off system.
The golf course is really nice and you can play for 50% off as a guest (but sitll really expensive when you pay for all the rentals as this was a non golf holiday i didnt bring clubs in total it ran me 5000 pesos.
The massages are reasonably priced and so are the activities however if you go and bargain in dmall you can bet them for 50% cheaper.
The property is in desperate need of a 7-11 or mini store as there are ZERO stores or restaurants within walking distance to the property.
No in room wifi seems to be a thing in Boracay (understandable) but you will want to be situated close the new lobby. It has the sexy new restaurant (with awful food). Regular shuttle leave from here, free wifi and if you live near the new lobby you are close to the nicest pool and swim up bar.
I complained about the food and got a free shuttle over to out next hotel Boracay Regency (5 STAR). The manager seemed genuine and sincere about my serious issues with the F&B which is all I ask for.
My recommendation is to wait and let them sort out the F&B after enough people get sick and or complain. Finally they are developing this area as "Boracay Newcoast" Completion in the next 5 years. I would plan your trip after this area is completed as the island has limited shopping choices (dmall) with about 5 variations of all identical stores and souvenirs.
