After you have endured the trip to Boracay the hotel room will soon calm your nerves. The reception is literally on the doorstep. No fancy waterfall to greet you here - they have optimised all the space and the check-in is as soon as you get off your transport. The room is clean and cool with nice pastel colours and you are sent free welcoming drinks which are in fact very delicous. There is an abudance of TV channels (I doubt you'll be watching much if youre in Boracay) and toiletries aplenty. The shower is large enough for two (or more) and there is constant hot water. There is no bathtub.
The room we had didn't have any windows facing out - you walked in through a ptio door - hence you had the curtains closed all the time and all the light was from the lamps.
There are plenty of plug socket but remember to bring a travel adapter. Although this was the newer building of the hotel, it still didn't have international plug sockets.
The hotel has a small pool in the courtyard, which is ok for a few laps, but not very big. Then again, the sea is less than 50 metres away - why would you go to the pool?
The location is good. You can walk out of the back of the hotel on to the beach and walk along the beachfront to all the other bars and restaurants. The hotel itself has a beachfront restaurant as well as a restuarant on the beach itself to have lunch and dinner. Not more than 50 metres away are the stall where you can book all your water activites or move another 50metres down and spend all your time on the beach doing nothing. The beach is magnificent - sand so fine it feels like velvet and water so warm, shallow and calm you easily spend all day in it.
