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.
