I was in the Philippines on business and had a weekend free so headed to Boracay. My travel agent selected the hotel and what a choice they made.
I was met at Caticlan airport by the very friendy Ronald (there will be a theme with the friendliness of all the staff). Adter a couple of bikes and a boat we were at the hotel. It is down a quiet lane in a secluded area but once in the grounds it is fantastic.
The greeting and check in was relaxed and set the tone for the stay. The room was large and absolutely fine with a balcony and the most stunning of views.
It is a bit away from White Beach but reception will call a bike and it's real easy - in fact staying a bit away from White Beach is, in many ways a bonus!
Can't say enough about the staff and on my last night when I was waiting to go out, I asked if any of them who were off duty wanted to join me and within minutes I had 6 new friends - for a solo traveller I was delighted to have company. A huge thanks to them.
I fell in love with Boracay that weekend and the Argonauta and staff were a large part of that.
If you are looking for somewhere special with exceptional staff and don't want to pay Shangri-La prices then this is the place for you.
I'll definitely be back ................... if only for another night out!
