“terrible place”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 May 2012

I booked this place because of positive reviews at Agoda. But in fact this place appeared to be terrible. Dirty, dark room with cockroaches, blood stains on curtains, no place to hang wet close, staff sleeping just outside of the room at the balcony.

The only plus is location near station 3. We moved to another place after two nights and were happy to escape.

I stayed here for 6 nights.

The location is good, nice and quiet enough. There's a bar and a thai food restaurant in the lobby.

The rooms aren't great. No fridge, they changed our sheets almost everyday. The bathroom was always dirty and there was mold. We encountered multiple cockroaches in our room. Had to ask for basic things like clean towels and toilet paper.

Staff was hit or miss, some were so friendly and some were the opposite.

We switched hotels for the remainder of our stay and were way happier. There are definitely better places to stay on the beach for a similar price!

We check in to find a depressing room with blood stains on towels and bedding. This place was so bad we checked out the same day without staying even one night. When we informed the owner about blood stains he didn't apologies just asked the maid to verify this was the case and then wnet onto to complain about losing money. What sort of manger does that!?! Seedy little hovel of a place with much much better options at same or less rates along beach front.

23 &24 Dec 2010..Stayed at the Sulu Plaza resort where the host, Wally and his family gave excellent service .
This resort is at boat station 3 away from the noise of the action end of the beach .though not the swankest roomI have ever stayed in it was clean functional and very reasonably priced .I had heard some bad reports about Boracay being a dirty beach but there is now a ban on smoking on the beach front.and this problem has been eliminated .My partner Vivian and I did lots of walking ,and swimming in the Chrystal clear waters and Wally arranged a sailing trip aboard the"LOVE SONG" the skipper Noynoy and his trusty crew Jose ,gave us a wonderful sail to the crystal caves nearby . only wish we had been able to stay longer .

We were met at Cataclan airport (not a pre-arranged meeting) by a woman who claimed to have a few hotels with great deals worth looking at. She guided us to the ferry, showed us where to buy our taxi/ferry tickets, accompanied us on the trike and led us to Sulu Plaza Beach hotel. The entrance to the restaurant/bar (Thai food) is right on the beach only a few steps from Boat Station 3 (literally... like 10 steps).

There were three of us traveling together and we were on a tight budget. We asked to see the "apartment room" and it looked fantastic -- a living area with a fold-out bed, a small kitchen with stove top and fridge, a nice-sized bathroom and a nice-sized bedroom with a small air con (VERY necessary in Boracay!). We agreed to stay and bargained down to the off-season rate since we were staying for 8 nights (thinking we would just leave if we didn't enjoy the place after a few nights).

The room ended up being great. What you sacrifice in luxury you get back in space and convenience. The two separate rooms were great for privacy, the kitchen was an awesome money-saver (we hit D*Talipapa for fresh fruit, eggs, bread, etc. for breakfasts and lunches), we had our own outdoor seating area (see photos) and the location was perfect for us (a ten minute walk along the beach to boat station 2 -- the active nighttime area). We were certainly surprised at the quality of room we got for 1800 pesos per night (dived by 3, that's only about $15US per person). Oh yeah, free cable and wi-fi!
