“Super friendly hotel, great rooms, right on the beach”
Reviewed 8 June 2014 via mobile

We've stayed here before so it was a surprise to find that the place has been totally rebuilt since we were last there. But the rebuild is good, the new place being really really well done.
The room was a good size but had a nice style, and was much more modern than the old place. We got a fruit basket and welcome drinks on arrival. A nice touch.
Food was good. Breakfast was nice on the roof terrace overlooking the beach. We also ate a lunch there and the pasta was excellent.
Staff were excellent, really attentive and helpful.
I think we got a really good deal on the rooms, with the rates being a lot lower than those published, which added to the generally good experience.
Overall though highly recommended - but at the real prices maybe slightly less good in terms of value.

This resort's location is amazing. They have an entrance from the Main Street and at the other side is fronting the beach. Beside the famous Jony's shake and the night life strip. Very classy rooms, oh I am in love with their bathroom. They managed to make it modern yet very tropical. For their breakfast set up, they used very class utensils that make you feel that you are dining first class.
Staff is off the charts wonderful. They are very attentive, they provide recommendations and with sunny demeanor. This resort comes highly recommended!

We were in Borocay for a friends birthday, with the bulk of the group staying in station 2. But this was also our honeymoon, so we decided we wanted to be away from the group a bit and took a punt on Watercolours dive resort... And did it pay off! The staff, and service in general, was amazing. The locale was perfect- nice walk the the hustle and bustle of station 2, but with Jonahs (and other nice eateries) basically next door, and the best part of the beach at your doorstep, this is the ideal place to stay on the island. The rooms were really well appointed and with the further modifications, more rooms being added, it can only get better and more accessible. We loved our experience and hope to go back!

My intention was to get a milkshake at jonahs but the line was insane so I decided to head back however, I saw few tables in front of a new resort and found out that it was actually a restaurant so I decided to give it a try....I was recommended the burger, OMG, it was amazing!, so I actually returned the next day to get it again..I later found out that the restaurant was just on its soft opening, I was fortunate to meet the owner (forgot her name) and had to compliment her superb food and excellent staff!!! amazing customer service, view was really nice from the roof deck, I would get a room in watercolors when I return in few months and of course, eat their burgers over and over again!!!

In front of the sea, and near jonah's and cocomangos. Around the hotel, a lot of bars and restaurants. Staff are really nice, we have to leave early so they prepare take-away breakfast for us. Really thanks a lot!

Newly renovated property in a great location at station 1, just 2 doors away from Jonah's fruitshake. We had a ground floor beachfront room, and can just walk right out to the beach! The staff were great and always looked to make our stay more pleasant.

The only thing standing in the way of a 5-star review:
- just 2 towels provided in room. A hand towel and spare towels will help, though we had no problems getting spare ones when needed

Watercolors blew me away with its location (station 1) right at the beach front and its amazing staff who are warm and friendly! My friend and I had rooms on the 2nd floor and the view in the morning when you wake up is simply divine! I will highly recommended this place!
The rooms are clean, new and swanky - a real treat at a reasonable price!

Room Tip: take the one on the 2nd floor.
