Among all the hotels, hostels and cheap rooms that I have found for our stay in Boracay Island, the winner was Boracay Residences located near Diniwid Beach. It’s in the center of all the beaches known in the island. Near White Beach (where the famous Stations 1, 2 and 3 are located), also near Diniwid Beach (where the famous Mika’s Path is located) and Bolabog Beach (where the kiteboarding scene is very much active). It’s more of a private hostel that offer cheap rooms and good quality service. Tita Fe is very accommodating and a very nice lady at that. She answered all of my questions at the best possible honesty that she has. She’s also very patient with me, because of all the questions that the group has raised, I could have asked the same questions for several times. The hostel is newly built, very classy and has Zen style for their interiors. Minimalist decorating I should say. We were allowed to use all their facilities and amenities which included the use of their dirty kitchen (but we have our own kitchen in our villa) where we cooked Marla’s pancit, their family table downstairs, their personal computer for viewing our pictures, their ihawan which we used on our 2nd night, their extra bathroom, the kubo style siesta place and most of all their mini-van for our service. Grabe! Sobrang bait ni Kuya Richie! Hindi niya nipag-buhat ng nipamili sina Magno and Hanzel. He even drove us to Bolabog Beach for our island hopping, to Cocomangas nung last night namin and even to Tambisaan Port nung pabalik na kami ng Manila. Tita Fe was even the one who offered me the person who would fetch us from Kalibo to bring us to Caticlan Jetty Port since medyo late na ang biyahe namin. She is really very nice. She made the trip planning easier for me since I was also working at the same time.
What I liked about the hotel is that there are several functions that can be done during the stay at their place. You can have team building at their rooftop or inumain sessions with your barkada at their siesta room or have family dinner at their family table inside the compound. And like what I said, you can cook your own food! Food in Boracay can get pricey at times, let me just remind you. These are several of the criterias that we love about Boracay Residences:
near private or secluded Diniwid Beach and Station 1
affordable rates for your accommodation needs
