Ok. We booked two rooms, a studio room and a two bedroom apartment. Firstly, the studio. This was a really nice room. Well decorated, reasonable size with a small kitchenette, and a sofa and small table. Reasonable location but no views.
The two bedroom apartment was ok. It was a reasonable size but poorly furnished. We had plenty of living room in the lounge but hardly any furnature to fill it! A tiny coffee table and sofa was not big enough to have friends over. We were on the second floor so had ocean glimpses.
And rather dirty and many things didn't work. We had the maintainence guys up for the airconditioning twice, hot watertwice, sqeeky door, no beach towels, and the apartment could have been allot cleaner than it was.
Food in their restaurant (breakfast and other meals) is great.
Pool area is nice to relax.
Location is great if you want peace and quiet. A walk to dmall (20min). Free hourly shuttle bus is handy.
I will say the staff and service are fantastic. Very friendly to us and our child. They always remembered our names and were very quick to help when asked.
A 3 minute walk to the beach.
Overall a nice hotel but significantly overpriced for what you get (but then again most placed in Boracay are overpriced).
