“Not bad for Phillipines Standart”
Reviewed 27 November 2012

We stood their for eight days and our room (bungalow) witch was not that bad as some princessbi.... discribe here! The bungalow got cleaned every day also the beds were made up every day! I had the phillipino breakfast every day with good italian coffee (lavazza) and a juice made off fresh fruits behind us in the bar. Mangos Calamanzis Kokonuts Oranges Litshees, just brilliant!
Fresh towells for free during the whole day! Perfect service at the beachfront: shakes for 90Pesos coktails for 190 Pesos .......
The location is exactly in the middle of white beach!

I was happy to stay there

Room Tip: talk to the receptionists. you allways get it cheaper as they first offer!

The good points.. nice room clean and spacious, reception staff helpful....now the bad news.....After booking 2 nights the first morning breakfast was ordered. Nothing special but after drinking my Pineapple juice that evening i was ill ( i did not eat anything after the meal) Investigating the history it was dicscovered that either the corned beef was off or perhaps because my drink had Ice cubes, which they may have been made be water from the tap. Whatever the answer is please i beg you do not have any cold drink from here with ice.

I stayed at LA RESERVE during 5 nights, at the end of December 2011 and spent New Year's Eve there. I really fell in love with Boracay and with White Beach, but really not that much with the hotel itself.

Let's start with the good things:

* The Location is the best. La Reserve is in the best spot of White Beach and the beach is just a few meters away from your room. This is a must.


* The Breakfast and food are also quite good. Even if it's also true for most places in Boracay.


The bad things:

* The staff doesn't seem to do much when the hotel owners are not there:
No greeting in the morning.... no smiles.... no service at ALL on the beach side.... I have never seen that in the Philippines, where service is usually at the top.

The only staff really professional was the security people in my opinion. Always ready to help.

* The Room we got (Bollinger) was very small. The Double bed would almost take 50% of the room size (not including the bathroom on the side). In such a small room, you survive a few days but you try to spend most of your time out of the room.
At 103 EUR (130 USD) per night you can expect something better...

* The Beach side was a real mafia. Imagine the hotel has only 14 beach beds to offer, for a full capacity of 50 guests. You get there early and you realize that all seats have been reserved by friends of the owners, or regular guests, who show up a lot later ....
The Staff is the one reserving these beds. Make sure you are on the LUCKY LIST if you want to enjoy the beach side.

As a Conclusion, I would say I will not return to la RESERVE.
The RED COCONUT next door would have been a much better choice I think.

This was one of the worst hotel experiences of my life and I don't understand how this place has so many good reviews. For 150 usd (quite a hefty sum in a country like the Philippines), we had a dirty room and a bed with a foam mattress. We were 3 girls staying in the deluxe room with attic, but we didn't realize before arriving that one of the "beds" was in the attic. I put "bed" in quotes because it's more like a giant round love-seat with a very thin mattress. To get up to the attic you have to climb ladder-like stairs and basically crawl in. The ceilings of both the main room and the attic were covered by loose fabric, which made the whole place really dusty. I was scared of touching the fabric on the way up to the attic being afraid of what creatures were breeding in there. The bed of the main room was also very poor quality, the mattress was thin and uncomfortable. I kept sliding toward the middle of the bed during the night. I was waking up with a back and neck ache every morning. They don't put the blanket in a cover, they only put a loose sheet underneath; I'm not sure if they ever change or wash the cover. The lighting in the room is really poor and I wonder if they do that to cover up the general run down look of the room.
This hotel is a total rip off. Friends staying in other beach-front resorts with nicer and cleaner rooms paid just a fraction of what we did.
If you want to enjoy your beach holiday and to keep your sanity, I suggest you move on, and book one of the other 200+ hotels on the island.

This is my worst experience , cottage is not clean, has no place to hang the clothes , agoda advirtise breakfast is include, yes there is breakfast inc, but they serve only bread , jam and tea, if you can call it breakfast. Agoda advirtise free wireless internet but this is only around reception service , not in your room. staff is not helpfull. you can have much better service and value of money any other hotel near by. their only care to milk the customers. stay away from this hotel otherwise you will regret it.

We stayed in La Reserve last February 2010( Chinese New Year ) and it's a great place to relax and enjoy Boracay. A little bit expensive but it's worth it. We stayed in the family cottage, 2 BDR complete with living , T& B and external verandah. Almost everything is perfect ,only the T&B and BDR has no door lock maybe it's designed really for family.two plasma tv and the tub with shower is ok.Clean and very peaceful. Even the guards are very accomodating as well as ladies on the front service. Breakfast is ok , western menu.Thanks for making our stay memorable.Sure to see you next year.

I've found paradise. We were travelling in a group of 38 for a close friends wedding and after 38hours of travelling from birmingham we arrive at La resereve Resort just as the sun was setting WOW, it really is the best beach in the world as voted in travel magazines. When arriving in our room which was meant for 4 sharing wasn't ideal for two copules as there was no separation between bedrooms, but after the first night we moved rooms ans everything was perfect. breakfast was either served to your room on the balcony or in the restraunt. We couldn't fault the service the only problem we found was the money exchange in the hotel didn't change us dollar travellers cheques but we eventually found the tourist centre and changed the money no problem.
The rooms where great and cleaned to a high standard daily and security at night was to a high standard. We loved boracay and the accomadation at La Reserve.
