“My Super Duper Vacation Stay in Boracay Mansion”
Reviewed 15 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

First of all, I would like to express my sincere thanks to Jean, Nonoy, Idu, Cherry and Lynn for their warmth hospitality during my stay in Boracay Mansion with my family.

My family and I love the Mansion very much. Superb view from the hill top. So nice and breezy. Beautiful swimming pool along with the jucuzzi. Tried the sauna and felt so good.

Jean and the 2 girls' cooking are so YUMMY. Nonoy and Idu, oh you guys are full of energy. Thank you so much for being so patience with us despite the late hours at night touring round the famous spots in Boracay. You both sent us back safe and sound with no worries at all.

With the help of all your assistance over the 6 days, our vacation stay in Boracay Mansion is a UNFORGETTABLE one.

Last but no least, my niece enjoy the companies of Cookie, Choco, Mancho and Ben.

Thank you all so much once again. CHEERS !!!

Amazing venue on the hill, with a beautiful infinity pool and two of the best beaches in the world are walking distance - right at the bottom of the hill. All rooms are well sized extremely clean rooms with ensuites. All staff were fantastic (huge thanks to Jean, Noy, Cherry & Lyn) and and nothing was too hard, the food they cooked was delicious! Can't wait to head back.

“10/10 This place is awesome”

We have just recently returned after 10 nights at the Boracay Mansion over the Christmas & New Years period. What a place. The level of service provided by Jean and her team is as good as it gets. Nothing was ever too hard. I lost count of the number of times I heard them all say "no problem". I actually felt sad to leave as I had built such good friendships with them all. Nonoy was amazing. Always there to take us in the mini van whenever we needed. The house itself was stunning. The rooms were all very spacious as were the bathrooms. We spent a fair amount of time in the morning in the common area watching the NBA. (They have 2 NBA channels). There was no need for aircon in this room as the breeze flows straight through. The pool and spa bath were used for hours every day. The BBQ's the staff cooked were delicious. I recommend the prawns and chicken. Breakfast was also amazing. Bacon & Eggs every morning. What more can you ask for after big night of partying. Boracay Mansion thank you for making our trip all so very special. I look forward to coming back and staying again some time.

“In one word: AMAZING”
Reviewed 18 December 2015 for a stay in December 2015

Boracay Mansion is in one word: AMAZING. We stayed with friends one week at the villa with high expectation and they all exceeded. The villa has great facilities and has an ideal location near to some quiet beaches. Although the villa itself is already an experience, it was defiantly Jean and her staff who completed the experience. Jean is one of the best hosts we have ever met and Nonoy, is the best driver you can have to discover the Island. Many many thanks Jean, Lean and Nonoy for the great week. We would love to come back and see you again!

“Awesome Stay!”
Reviewed 25 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We were a group of 5 guys visiting Boracay for the first time and couldn't have asked for a better place to stay than Boracay Mansion. The house is awesome. The 3 bedrooms with king beds are huge, as are their en-suites. The room with the double beds is a little smaller, but who cares when you are staying in this house. The downstairs area is perfect for relaxing. Obviously the pool received plenty of use, as did the bar and stereo system next to it. The upstairs area we only really used for meals (as well as jumping off the balcony into the pool). We didn't use the sauna because who uses a sauna on a tropical island?

The staff at Boracay Mansion are amazing. Jean is the manager and was very helpful when booking in the stay. She met us at Caticlan airport and helped us navigate our way across to Boracay island on the ferry. She was also happy to organise and book anything we wanted to do, as well as buy food and drinks for us to have at the house. Noy was our excellent driver for the stay, he knew the island well and was more than happy to take us where we wanted to go and recommend any activities or places to eat at.

The highlight of the stay was the amazing seafood dinner cooked up by Cherry and Lyn (with some help from Jean). It was the best meal we had on the trip - fish, oysters, scallops, crab, prawns with fried rice and salad - all prepared in the house. Breakfasts were also delicious, as were all the other meals.

I would highly recommend Boracay Mansion to anyone visiting the island as I am sure than Jean, Noy, Cherry and Lyn will ensure that you have a great stay.

“A wonderful place but...”
Reviewed 27 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We stayed 8 adults, 4 children and 2 infants for 5 days. The place is a paradise. The view, the beach, the staff everything is very good.
The house has 4 separate rooms each one with a hot tab, therefore it is very convenient to host there 4 separate families.
The only down side is: the house needs maintenance. The air-con, doesn't work in the kitchen-living room area which might be quite hot, the Jacuzzi pool has a leak, you need to ask for new towels, no towels for hands, and above all the people who run the place sell you transportation and attraction with a commission they do not tell you about.
I would still take the place but insist on the little things such as, they could not get a cot for babies telling us that there are no cots in Boracay, it is hard to believe, be aware that you are charged even for the purified water you dring. The helpers, Cherry and Jean are superb.

Our home is very well maintained. We purposely do not air condition the common area living room as it opens on 2 sides by large sliding glass doors and the ceiling is over 10 meters high. We normally have a nice breeze and 2 big ceiling fans and 2 stand fans which are seldom needed. It naturally flows onto the decks to enjoy Boracay natural weather.

We provide all full size towels for your hands and body as the small hand towels disappear. We always have extra towels for the asking, we do not offer unlimited towels without asking, when we did, too many disappeared and we learned. We absolutely do not sell any transportation or attractions. We rented a newer Toyota van for 14 people, very large for about 3,500 pesos total charge, from Kalibo to the Boracay port, 1.5 to 2 hours depending traffic. That was 76 us dollars, $ 5.40 per head, for them. He is always on time and a safe driver. No affiliation. We use him because our guests like him, and many are crazy drivers and not reliably on time in Kalibo. We welcome our guests to arrange their own ride, it will save us time and phone costs. Same with attractions, please negotiate with your own vendor, if you like. We know who is reliable and good from our past experiences and guest comments, we are only trying to show you the best experience. We do not take any commissions. We are a private home and we do not have a baby cot, and could not locate one for sale on Boracay. The hot tub is filled in 2 minutes anytime.
Regarding water: we buy filtered drinking and cooking water wholesale at $2 for 10 liters. Yes, we ask reimbursement. No profit here. Again for our guest convenience.
Our staff has never worked so hard for guests, and although not included, we babysat 2 babies, and 4 kids at once ,several times, for many hours, , and zero tip, and no other remuneration given, and we really feel unappreciated. We Filipinos are proud, and we gave these guests are best and most wonderful service.

“Best Option for a Stay in Boracay”
Reviewed 6 July 2015 for a stay in May 2015

I can definitely only say that this is the best place to stay. The mansion itself is truly a mansion. The amenities you have here are way better than what you will get at any hotel - it's private to you! The pool is like an infinity pool and has a hottub to go with it overlooking one of the best views we've observed from the island during our trip. The bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen and lounge areas are extremely clean, welcoming and home like.
But the staff are better than the place. If we go back it will be to be able to see Jean and Noy again and have him help us with the craziest requests! Jean greeted us immediately at the airport in Boracay and everything was taken care of from there. We met Noy at the ferry stop where he drove us to the mansion - he knows the island like the back of his hand, ask him anything he'll tell you where and how. The girls who help around the kitchen cooked us the kind of breakfast and dinner we wanted practically on a daily basis.
Even the "guard" dogs Cookie and Choco are just splendid. If you're not a dog person don't worry cause Jean and Noy have the reins very tight. But if you are a dog person be ready for some vacation love!! :)
We were also concerned about the location until we got there. Then quickly noticed that this was the best choice. If you're right on the beach somewhere around white sand - you have all the noise and the hustle and bustle going on during the day. Staying a little away gives you the completely privacy, quiet and peace you need to just relax. Oh and ask them about getting your own private masseuse watching that view. Bliss!!
