“Not so special,choose another hotel.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 September 2013

PRONS:
-the hotel is quite clean;
-beach towel and benches are provided.

CONS:
-amenities are not complimentary;
-bed is not the most comfortable one;
-breakfast is mediocre,but flies will enjoy some of your breakfast too!
-hotel staff don't look motivated at all;
-swimming pool is not so big.
-Internet never worked.We had to keep calling the reception but they always had a new excuse for the WIFI malfunction.
-When you take the key out,electricity turns off including the air conditioning.It was very annoying finding a hot room on our return,and it takes a while before it cools down.

We chosen the supreme deluxe room but,apart from the poster bed,it had nothing luxurious;furniture looked cheap and a little creepy.

In my opinion,there are so many other better hotels in Boracay.
Everything in Real Maris is overpriced without meeting expectations.DON'T go there!!

Everything was just perfect! We were welcomed by a refreshing tropical drink that will definitely quench your thirst from the transfers from the airport. Ambiance is very relaxing despite the noise on the beach, the resort seems secluded because of the room's layout. The room is clean and very spacious with large bathroom with separate shower, bath tub and toilet. Amenities are however, not complimentary. Good thing we have our own things. Bed is very comfortable with extra pillows available in the closet. It's great to have a dip in their pool after trying the watersports activities. Pool is very relaxing because the water is a bit warm, I feel like dipping in a hot bath. There's a variety as well inn the breakfast buffet and service is very good. Everyone is very accommodating.

great location! beach front, literally ten steps from Army Navy burgers and burittos,Starbucks and Gerry 's Grill. clean but small pool. big rooms, clean and courteous staff.we had a great time.the only downside is that you can hear all the noises and nightbands in your room because it's in the middle of the Station 1

Room Tip: family rooms are better if you are travelling in group of 4 or more!

The rooms were clean, spacious and comfortable. The location of Real Maris is ideal - practically on the action-packed beach but quiet inside the rooms. The staff was wonderful, respectful and helpful.... they even went out of their way to help prepare some gluten-free meals for us. There was so much to do in Boracay that we never made it into the Real Maris pool. Note - the hotel is hard to find from the main road... as you must make several turns through narrow alleyways. The Real Maris beach is not for quiet lounging... it is a very active spot with many boats coming and going and merchants everywhere; but we did enjoy the lounge chairs under the canopy of coconut trees. The one drawback to this resort are the keys/electricity. In order to save electricity, the room key acts as a master electrical switch when in the room. The bummer is that when you leave the room with your key, all electricity turns off - including the air conditioner. Thus, you will return to a hot room that takes a while to cool down. Despite this caveat, we all loved our stay here!!

This hotel had beautiful rooms and a lovely pool and it was right next to the beach, but also a little secluded for privacy. The cons were the smaller pool was under construction and the noise began as early as 6am and lasted well into the night. Also, I hardly ever had internet. I had to keep calling the office and they kept saying the router was old (so fix the problem and buy a new one). On the last day, they tried to charge me for the shampoos, but there was no price tags so they took that charge off my bill. Overall, it was a very nice hotel, but not worth the price.

Visited Boracay May 30 to June 4. with me and 7 other members of my family. Here is my verdict of Real Maris Hotel, Great location - beachfront, with swimming pool, clean and spacious rooms but comes with a high price, it is worth it if you can afford. Reception staff are helpful and attentive - not had problems with them. Breakfast is simple and quickly served. Swimming pool is clean and have a nice ambience light in the evening. We stayed in 2 family rooms. Main and second bedroom is clean and spacious, have lounge area and balcony. Bathroom is clean and spacious too. Rooms are cleaned everyday. Hotel is very secure, there is always a security guard at the entrance, which is great. All of us are satisfied with our stay at this hotel but be prepared to pay a lot for it.
