Mayflower Hotel
Ranked #153 of 227 Boracay B&B and Inns
Reviewed 15 February 2013

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights in early Feb, 2013. It was a 10-minute walk to White Beach and a 2-minute walk to the back beach (Bulabog Beach). Our room was clean, quiet, and overlooked the pool but had a few cockroaches which is not unexpected in this climate. All rooms are pool view. We really enjoyed the pool -- it was very clean, refreshing, and long enough to do laps in. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was only so-so -- not great but not terrible. We paid a pricey $70 Cdn./night for a double (pre-booked through Agoda), the most we paid for a hotel during our 11 weeks of travel in Asia. But after all, this is Boracay and this is the high season. If you want to be close to the action or on the beach, you'd want to stay elsewhere of course. We, on the other hand, were trying to escape the claustrophobic chaos of White Beach which pretends to be a world-class beach destination but in our opinion, doesn't measure up. Sure, it has a wonderful beach, lots of water sports, and lots of bars, but there are simply too many people, in excess of 1 million tourists a year which is staggering for such a tiny island. Having said that, we did enjoy the back beach with its cooling breezes, colourful kite surfers, and a refreshing lack of pedestrian jams. BTW, just a 3 minute walk from the Mayflower towards White Beach is the English Bakery which serves excellent light meals and snacks.

It is a quick 3minute walk to bulabog beach which is really windy and used for kitesurfing. It is about 10minute walk to the whitebeach area where there are lots of places to eat and drink and shopping too.
The rooms are clean and tidy. The breakfasts were not great. Maybe more fruit and a bit more of a selection would have been good. The wifi was not very good and was difficult to get connection most times.
The staff were polite and friendly. Overall stay was comfortable.

Paid 4800 Pesos for two nights w/breakfast for two.
Lovely people. Friendly and helpful Wella at Front Desk and others make your stay a happy one. 3 kinds of breakfast, Korean, Filipino and American. Lots of Korean guests.
On the road to the back beach, Bulabog. Free shuttle to and from D'Mall. Only a 5 to 10 minute walk to D/Mall and Whitebeach, less to Bulabog Beach. Depending on your tolerance of wind choose which beach to go to for calm to very windy wind and kite surfing conditions. Not many food outlets on Bulabog, much much quieter than the Whitebeach side.
Have to sign a book for incidentals you require like a bottle opener, a fan. Funny.

Room Tip: All the rooms are away from traffic. If you don't want pool noise get a room on 2nd or 3rd floor...
