“Disappointing”
Reviewed 15 May 2014

Very poor quality hotel for the high price that we paid. Needs renovation very rundown. Bathroom was not very clean and cistern was broken and we asked twice for it to be fixed but it kept running water all night which was annoying and sometimes would not flush. Room was very hot during the day and night and airconditioner was positioned pointing straight at the bed which meant it became very cold at night but there was no duvet provided. The pool was not clean and felt very slimey. Breakfast was disappointing as well. The only good things about the hotel was that the staff were pleasant and the location was great close to the action and across from the beach. Overall a disappointing experience and overpriced. Would not recommend this hotel.

Located in Sta 1, Beachfront hotel. Most of the rooms have balcony which is fronting the swimming pool. Clean, Good location, nice and family friendly hotel. Breakfast is OK. Towels are free as well as soap and 1 bottle lotion (small)....but shampoos, toothpaste and toothbrush is not complimentary!!! oh why!!! wifi-always not working...my stay could have been perfect except for these!

Located on Stn1 with a short pathway that leads to the beach. The pool is clean and refreshing. The vip deluxe room is huge for 2 people as well as the bathroom. I believe that there's a bathtub installed on every room. Though you'll hear the partying noise outside, I find it ok and normal since you're in Boracay. The buffet breakfast is ok.

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!

Reviewed 8 April 2013

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!!
