Spent a week there in one of the family rooms (room 2). Roy and his wife are very friendly and welcomed us. The room was basic and clean, as was the surrounding area. Beds were comfortable and the air con worked well. There is also a nice hot shower. Breakfast consisted of toast, butter, jam, slice of fruit (usually pineapple), powdered mango juice, coffee or tea. Staff were polite but not as friendly as Roy. There is a boat vendor there (Jason) who will organise any trip you wish.
The main negative we found was the noise at night. Of the 7 nights we were there, we only had 1 undisturbed night's sleep. The room windows are of the louvre style, so any noise outside easily gets into the room. The reception area is outside and is directly opposite the family rooms 1 & 2. The reception opens at around 6am with plenty of noise being made, we also had noisy neighbours on 3 nights, rooms 1 & 2 have an adjoining door which means you can easily hear someone talking in the room next door. As a result we generally didn't get to sleep until later than planned and got woken up much earlier than we would have liked.
We have previously stayed at Dave's Straw Hat, just around the corner this is a much friendlier place and quieter, you are made to feel part of the family there, but they were fully booked. As the noise issue spoilt the trip for us, if we go to Boracay again, we would chose Dave's and book them earlier.
