Please do not book at Real Maris in Boracay. Like many resorts they are over selling the resort and also completely lying when it comes to being in Station 1. They are actually in Station 2 and to make matters worse they don’t have any direct beach front instead you have to walk down a 20 meter path through shops on both sides and then you get 20 sun beds at the top of the beach in the shade. Mind you the whole area is so busy with people you won’t relax very much.
As for the resort itself the staff seem pleasant enough but the first two rooms they put us in (we are a family of five) was right next to the construction site which boarders one side of the property. We asked to move which they agreed. The two new rooms again were on the ground floor and looked at the so called restaurant (12 tables and plastic chairs). The bathroom windows were open in both rooms and the bathroom was full of mosquitoes. Also that night the local night club had a full disco going to 2am in the morning so nobody got any sleep. Suffice to say we were not impressed.
The swimming pool is very small and again the fading tiles and tired sun beds (two) gave us the impression nobody has spent any money on the place in many years. This so called 4 star resort is closer to 2 stars and if you were looking for a relaxed beach holiday this would be the worst place to stay. I guess if you are single and stay out all night this might work for you.
We ended up the next day cancelling our weeks booking. We complained that the web site was misleading and that they were in fact in Station 2 not Station 1. Also the pictures and web site indicate beachfront when in fact its 40 meters down a narrow path to the shops and then the beach. The reception staff seemed to understand what we were saying and I’m sure others had complained before but the management who didn’t seem to be onsite weren’t interested at all. They refused to refund our money so we left losing the entire amount for six days. This resort is run from Manila with people that don’t have any care for the hospitality industry and instead are more intent on making money and cutting costs. Real Maris is a Real Rip off and I can’t warn travelers enough not to stay at this resort.
We ended up moving out and stayed at the Ambassador in Paradise a resort that is genuinely in Station 1 which I highly recommend. A beautiful 5 star resort with direct access to the beach and a fantastic swimming pool, beach restaurant and accommodation. It was one of the best resorts we have stayed in having travelled extensively in Asia for over 20 years. Enjoy Boracay but stay away from Real Maris
