“Meh”
Reviewed 25 September 2013

This place is okay. I don't think there are elevators, but the stairs are exhasssting.

I came here in July so rooms were cheaper..not peak season. The service here was decent, I can't complain. There's free wifi, free breakfast served on the second floor, a pool and umbrellas of course.

The rooms are okay.. two beds, one full and one twin. They offer the basic toiletries, a fan on the ceiling, a/c, hair dryer, a small refrigeraor with two complimentary water bottles, and an older model TV.

My favorite part of the hotel is it's on the boardwalk! Just step out onto the beach and you're good to go.

Room Tip: Obviously you want the balcony, but it's more.

We stayed in this resort last Aug. 22, 2013 in celebration of our wedding anniversary. With us were our parents and my brother. This resort has been my first choice as this is, I believe, the most affordable beachfront hotel with swimming pool at the very heart of Boracay station 2.

I can say that our stay here were very relaxing and valuable due to its proximity to everything that the island has to offer… the beach, the bars and restaurants, d’mall (about a minute walk), d’talipapa where we ate lunch “paluto” style, and just anything under the sun!

The rooms are very spacious and are all good for 3 persons. The beds are comfy and the air-conditioning is fine, and it also has a personal fridge. Moreover, the shower room has a bathtub (in Superior room where we stayed. I just don’t know about their standard rooms). But of course there are still some points for improvement as far as room features are concerned. The breakfast is not buffet but decent enough for me. I can also say that they are pro-active in terms of servicing their guests because when I stayed beside their pool for a night drink, the front office employee came for me to my surprise and gave me a hand in opening my cold beer. Little things such as this one are always plus points for a total customer satisfaction.

Overall, I would definitely say that I have found my place in the island and will be staying here again and again and again.

This hotel has been my choice every time i go to Boracay. Ive stayed here for a numerous time since 2008 and planning to come back again this 2013. The hotel is located in station 2 at the beach front. The rooms at the left side are pretty much bigger since its wiser to go for a room without balcony coz i only use the room for sleeping, resting and changing clothes and its also cheaper that way. The bathroom is clean, big and doesnt stink. Breakfast they provided is located on the 2nd floor which is quite average in serving, just right to start your day. But i gotta compliment the ambience since i prefer having breakfast seeing people on the beach jogging or just passing by than eating inside the room.

The only thing that is bad would be the wifi connection.

A few walks and youll find yourself besides DMall, bars, restaurants and souvenir shops.

It was a so and so experience. We rarely stayed at the hotel, only to change our clothes, shower and sleep. The beach is beautiful white sand. The stairs entrance to go to the rooms had garbage bins full of scrap from the restaurant beside it. It really stank. The front desk on the first day we checked in was rude. The room was clean and decent. Price is ok. There is a loud bar beside the hotel, but you can asked to be moved on the other side. If you're looking forward to stay at the beach all day, you wouldn't need 5 star hotel at least in my opinion. Bed is comfortable. Overall the hotel is ok to stay at to sleep at a good price. Enjoy the beach and excursions.

We unfortunately booked 9 nights at this hotel during the period between Christmas and over the New Year. It certainly wasn't our first choice, but everything else, other than the top end hotels, was booked out months before our trip.
First impressions are that it is in total need of a refurb, it's tired and tatty, but the room itself was clean enough. The plumbing leaves a lot to be desired, the water pressure in the showers is poor and requires having to hold the shower head in your hand to shower properly.
We were in for a real shock on the first night, our room was situated next door to a late night bar, which blasted excruciatingly loud music until one in the morning, it was that loud, you could not only hear it, but you could feel the vibrations.
We stood that for 2 nights, but on the third, my partner got out of bed at midnight and went down to reception to complain and request that they either find us a quieter room or we would check out. Surprise surprise, they found us a room on the other side, where they seem to like to put the Korean guests, of which are the majority and who they seem to cater for. Apart from one other, we were the only western guests in the hotel.
This hotel only serves breakfast, which is supposed to be served between 7 and 9, but we found you were lucky to be served before 7.30 and you were given a choice of continental, American or Philippine. We opted for the continental, which consisted of 3 small pieces of barely toasted tasteless white bread and enough butter and marmalade for one slice. We also had a small glass of orange and a satchel of 3 in 1 coffee, which was the tastiest part or the breakfast, but tough if you don't take sugar, because they don't give you the 2 in 1 option.
Needless to say, we would not book this hotel again, but apart from everything we found the staff polite.

Room Tip: Go for rooms in the 200's. Any rooms on the other side in the 300's are unbearable noisy.

We had a bad start with this hotel, as they were very inconsiderate with the unanticipated changes with our trip. They were charging us for the full price of the rooms that we were not going to use anymore. Thanks to myboracayguide.com! They helped us clarify the issue with the hotel so we ended up with only a 10% loss, which is of course considerable instead of the 100% loss. Amy is the front desk personnel who is very heartless, displaying a total lack of understanding. Kenneth, on the other hand, is the other personnel who showed sympathy (kaya nakakabawas inis kahit papaano).
Anyway, the rooms are typical. We got two rooms, each with a balcony. One of the rooms had terrible air-conditioning system. It felt like it wasn't working at all, and they cannot even provide an electric fan (they said that some rooms are just built to have no electric fan). But too bad, the air-conditioning is crappy. There is also a leak to the balcony coming from the air-condition, so the floor at the balcony is wet all the time.
They put a clothes line at the balcony, where you can hang wet towels or bathing suits. so pinoy :)
Housekeeping staff is courteous, unfortunately, we were having our nap when they were supposed to clean up our room. The bathroom is fine, no stench.
Daily breakfast is okay, with few choices. It is served on a plate, no buffet, at the veranda with a good view of the beach.
The swimming pool is approximately 4feet deep. Not good for kids who are non-swimmers, unless they have their floaters.
The location is definitely good. It is along the white beach and accessible to everywhere. It is just a walking distance from D'Mall and other restaurants. Shakey's is just downstairs.
It is good, but I'd better go somewhere else. There are better resorts nearby, with more affordable rooms and better customer service.

Room Tip: Pick rooms upstairs. Rooms on the first floor smell like cat urine (so terrible!) Check the air-con...

I try to understand that this hotel is cheap and is in an ideal location.
Located right on the beach front, close to D'Mall and all the bars and restaurants its very convenient.
On the downside the rooms are very low class mine had a bucket in the shower as water pressure was extremely low.

Travellers have to weigh up cost for location scenario.

Budget hotel in great location.

Room Tip: One with a good shower !!!!
