Occupants: 4 adults and 1 child. Let me start with the PLUS POINT: This hotel is a 3-storey structure located at Station 2-beachfront, close to all restaurants ,stores and bars. Its easy to find the hotel, the Shakeys Pizza Restaurant is in front and the hotel is only a few steps away from the stylish Boracay Mandarin. It has a clean pool, ok for kids. It has a security guard and the Staff were helpful. It has free a la carte breakfast (American or Filipino breakfast) and a generator in case of power shortage. Its affordable, for non-peak rate we paid P2,650 ($62) for a superior room with 1 king bed, 1 single bed and 1 extra mattress for another P800.00 ($19). There’s a Korean restaurant within the hotel small vicinity since most of the guests here are Koreans. The room is so basic, simple and so is the bath room (w/ basic toiletries). T.V. is flat screen with good air conditioning. Wifi in the small lobby area and breakfast area is strong. It has spa and massage service for around P350.00 per hour.
NEEDS IMPROVEMENT: Our room at the ground floor is so near the kitchen or working area of the staff. We could smell the cooking and other filthy odor so they should cover this part. There are cats in our veranda which is a bit annoying cause we sit there once in a while to chill n eat. There are plants and plant ponds in front of the room which serves as mosquito hideouts so I hope they get rid of that too. Aircon exhaust was dripping in our veranda, it needs repair. Breakfast area on the 2nd floor is fronting the nice beach but this area badly needs repainting. Service should be improved too. The hotel signage should be replaced its old and dirty. It does not speak well of cleanliness.
Boracay Peninsla (not connected to the big Peninsula hotel ) has a big potential but must first undergo a lot of facelift and better management. Again, this is a 3 star hotel so don’t expect a Shangrila ambiance. Would I recommend this to a friend? Yes if you don’t mind minor flaws. .if you have an extra Peso to spare, check out station 1 accommodations.
