“One of the worst hotel I have ever stayed!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2012

I have just checked in on 29th July 2012 at 1600hrs. The room rental is $165SGD per day and vis-a-vis the value you get is absolute zero; their bathroom towels are as if it's for mopping the floor & the only thing they don't charge you is toilet paper.
As you enter the hotel you see one broken desk covered by a white cloth which is known as front desk.

Keep your bliss intact by not staying in here.

Staff are very friendly and helpful from the get-go. The beach is literally at your backyard. Beach towels and benches are provided by the hotel. Breakfast was bad, lunch was worse (expensive too!). The furnitures are kinda old-fashioned and the floor needs to mopped/vacuumed. Yes, it is located by the beach but after a whole day on the sand, the last thing I need is dusty/sandy floor.

Warning! This is not a beach front resort as advised by their booking office. There is a small patio that you have to go thru before you see the beach. There is NO place in front of the beach where you can relax because it is located in a very busy area... CHAOS!
If you need a place just to sleep then probably this will be ok BUT STILL its expensive given the location, there's a lot of resort that has better location and worth the same price that they offer.
Also they need to refurbish, like the window of our room its broken but I cannot keep it open because the neighboring resort will see me, take note this hotel is just 1yr old as they told me.

At the back, the hallway going to the room the view is very terrible you can see the hanging clothes and dirty area of the neighboring resort... IF YOU DONT WANT TO MESS YOUR VACATION DONT STAY HERE!

Not worth it!

I booked the V.I.P deluxe room for our honeymoon on this hotel because I read some of the good reviews about this hotel. Of course I came across to some bad reviews saying that the hotel was located in the partying area in boracay where a good rest seems just like a dream to happen. But, upon arriving to the hotel, their staff were very accommodating, but we have to wait for our room to be available because of the ongoing housekeeping. Upon entering our room, the bed was so romantically set up with drapes and the bathroom is so clean and organized, and well maintained by the housekeepers. The room has its own ref so being thirsty in the middle of the night won't be a problem. At night, the place is quiet compared to other hotels in the area namely RED COCONUT, LA CARMELA ETC...I am really looking forward to be back in this hotel. Great place and a great value for money..

We stayers here 3 nights. When we arrived and asked For the priced, which where a lot more expensive than booking throug agoda. The rooms are spacious, clean and very comfy. We where surprised to see the reviews on tripadvisor, as we really enjoyed our time here. Of course there are venders on the beach for sail trips but that is on the whole beach! Boracay is super touristy so don't expect to have a very quiete and serene holiday. With all that said I would recommend this hotel if the prices where a bit lower!

I chose this hotel because it's right on the beach and it has patios where you can sit and watch the pool. Unfortunately, I couldn't use the patio much since the sun was shining directly on the bench making it very warm. The rooms are nice and big, the beds decorated romantically. Bathrooms are big and modern. The pool is attractive and stylish. A few minor quibbles; the hotel restaurant is mediocre. We ate our free breakfast only the first morning. I liked going to Real Coffee down the beach. Excellent muffins! There are only 4 beach lounge chairs around the pool. These were usually staked out by someone leaving you to sit in a restaurant chair or on the ground. It seems to me they could have put out chairs. The staff was efficient but not too clued in to whats in the city. A lady I asked where a restaurant in D'Mall was had no idea and didn't bother to ask someone else.

Room Tip: Some patios are directly exposed to the sun.

It's quite far from the main road where your transfer can drop you off. The path going the hotel was dirty and a mess, and I was a bit shocked because the resort was really worn out. Like they did not care to maintain the place. It was very far from their pictures in the website. We arrived around 1pm but they said they still cannot give the room? Which is weird since its not really peak and I assume they have the room ready but still followed the standard check-in time at 2pm. So we left our bags in their front desk and decided to have lunch first. Customer Service was quite poor.

When we got back to check-in, it took them awhile before they could let us in. The room was very spacious, the interior was not arranged well and not maximized. It had a bathtub and spacious bathroom. But the wooden chair in the balcony looked very old and dirty, the should replace it already. What I loved was their nets in the four poster beds. We actually liked that there were food stands outside because their food (breakfast was so-so) and we liked to buy other food nearby. Location was near to bars and restaurants and to the boat dock for island hopping and water sports. It was also walking distance to D'mall and the road. Many food establishments were nearby like Yellow Cab and Hawaiian BBQ. Although the resort did not have a beach front area. We also never tried swimming as I'm afraid they might have forgotten to maintain that also. The place had ref, cable (old) TV, SDB, huge cabinets for your clothes , balcony, table and chairs but it could have been better if they renovated the place. Some of the windows were also broken already in our room. We were out most of the time so we weren't so much concerned about their flaws.

But for the price your paying, I think there are other resorts in Boracay who can satisfy your needs than Real Maris. They may have a pool but one that is not worth dipping in, you have to weigh the cons and read reviews.

Room Tip: Make a list of what you want or your priorities in booking a resort first
