Boracay Peninsula Resort
Ranked #167 of 226 Boracay B&B and Inns
Reviewed 9 December 2010

Stayed at the Peninsula Boracay Station 2 for three nights.The first impression i had was terrible..The check in staff were unfriendly and there isn't a lift so we had to climb up the stairs every time.Room is very basic.Calling for a cup of coffee in the morning took 45mins(am not exaggerating),after having to remind them.It finally arrived with a cup and sugar in a bowl with lots of ants around and in it.Climbing up and down the stairs was a nightmare everytime as there was stench of urine around..The management(caucasians) were also extremely rude.They made rude vulgar remarks in Tagalog to my friends and i as we return one night and they thought we didnt understand..Never will i recommend such a hotel to anyone.I travel around the world a lot due to work and never have i experience such horrible management of a hotel.

Reviewed 5 September 2010

We spent 5 nights at the Boracay Peninsula (BP) resort in August. It was low season, and our first hotel was a bust... We had 4 criteria when picking a hotel: 1. Less than US $45/night, 2. Must have swimming pool, 3. Must be beach front, 4. Must be clean. After the research I had done prior to arriving in Boracay and the scouting out that we did while there, Boracay Peninsula was the only remaining hotel. Since it was habagat and we were staying five nights, we were able to negotiate for a premium room at about Php 2,100 per night, but you might be able to do better.

Positives:
- The location is the best! Things can change depending on the season in Boracay, but BP and Boracay Regency had the cleanest, softest, and clearest sand in all of Station 2 while we were there. Station 3 was looking pretty awful. Since things aren't too rowdy during low season, staying in Station 2 was definitely the best option for us since BP is close to many of the great seafood buffets, mongolian buffets, and restaurants without being too loud. Plus, it's a short walk to D'Mall and not too far from D'Talipapa. There were also many sari-sari stores close by. [We recommend walking about two minutes (to the right coming out of the hotel) to the store called "Pascual's" or something like that. They have much better prices than the other places.]

- The premium room was a pretty good value. It had a queen and a twin, crappy TV with cable, average sized bathroom with shower curtain, closet to store suitcases, small vanity, and a patio with sitting chairs. The A/C worked very well, and there was also a mounted wall fan. There is plenty of light, and the ceiling lighting is much better than most hotels in the RP... except in the bathroom where the lighting definitely not sufficient. The view from the patio is probably pretty nice from any room since you'll at least have a view of the swimming pool and maybe a very small glimpse of the ocean. They claim that every room has a sea view.... meaning you can see a little bit of it through the trees... but still nice.

- Housekeeping was very good about cleaning the room daily, and they did an excellent job.

- The pool was well-maintained and very refreshing after being in the ocean. I think it was supposed to close after dark, but the security guard didn't bother us when we went for a late night dip one time.

- Did I mention that it has a great beach? It was low season, so we didn't have to fight over the beach chairs and umbrellas. The chairs are the kind that only lie flat, so it would be nice to have the adjustable kind. They bring them in at dark, but you can ask and they'll carry them back out if you want.

- There is free wireless internet! It was actually a decent speed, and we never had any trouble with it.

Negatives
- The front desk staff seemed worn out and jaded. They weren't rude or anything, we just didn't feel any of the warmth and hospitality that you come to expect in the Philippines.

- The hotel design is a little bland, and it's definitely time for some renovations as many parts seemed to be cracked and crumbling. The ceiling of the room was repaired with packing tape, and it looked like it had a leak in the not too distant past. In addition, the patio door didn't lock! We just said a little prayer, and trusted that nothing would go missing as your neighbors can easily hop the wall to your patio if they wanted to.

- In the off season it seemed like the hotel catered very strongly to the Korean and Taiwanese tour groups. There's even a Korean restaurant on site. The reason I say this is a negative is because they tend to travel in very large and loud tour groups, and therefore aren't always the most pleasant neighbors. Perhaps this is why the front desk staff seemed worn out.

- We were so exhausted every day that it wasn't a big problem for us, but we could definitely hear music into the wee hours even though we were at the back of the resort. If you are a very light sleeper, you might want to consider ear plugs.

Overall, I would recommend this hotel because it was exactly what we were looking for- a good value in station 2 with a great beach front, a swimming pool, and a clean property. I wouldn't recommend this place to people looking to just lounge around their hotel and be treated as royalty as this is more the type of place to serve as a good place of rest from all the day's activities and night's excitement. If they could put some money into minor aesthetic renovations and if the staff could smile a little more, I think this resort could really be fantastic.
