“Brilliant Place to stay... Amazing Views... But be cautious of local staff.”
Reviewed 7 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

people found this review helpful

We were a group of 9 friends on a Bachelors Party in Boracay. Sky Villa looked like the best option available to us and we went ahead.
Coming to the Villa, it was a beautifully located villa with very well maintained interiors and amazing views of the sea. It was tastefully done up and well equipped with good wifi as well. Our 4 day stay at the Sky Villa was quite comfortable and we had no complaints with the property as a whole.
Now coming to the not so good part of our stay: Right from the time we reached Dennis who was the caretaker “looked” like a very helpful guy and was ready to help us plan out our activities in Boracay. He offered to get us good deals for the various activities in the Island and also said he would purchase our drinks and food.
During the course of our holiday, we realized that we were getting ripped in every almost every deal which was facilitated by Dennis the caretaker. Getting into the details below
- Beverages – There was a minimum 50% mark up on all drinks bought to us by Dennis (local department store costs were much lower) For example: A Bottle of Coke costs 25pesos but he told us they were 40pesos. A bottle of san miguel light beer costs 30pesos but were sold at 50pesos by him. All we would get was hand written bills.
- Food - We had one Barbeque dinner at the Villa and we realized that we ended up paying much more than what we would pay at a restaurant. (For example: the meat bought from the local market was charged almost three times the cost by the caretaker. How could 1.5 kgs of Pork cost 1000pesos?? And 1.5kgs of Beef cost 2100 pesos??) Again only hand written bills.
- Local Waters port Activities – Dennis offered to help us get a good deal for the water sports but we realized that there are “hidden costs” (commissions) built into our supposedly great offers. We enquired at the local water sports center to find it that it was much lesser.
Our group has been travelling every year and we have stayed in similar Villas (In Indonesia, Thailand, Sri Lanka, etc). And everywhere we felt right at home and the Housekeeping/caretakers looked after us very well. They were always honest and would show us the original store bills for everything bought. Not once did we have to doubt them.
Sky Villa in terms of comfort and location was brilliant but the fact that we had to constantly verify the claims/offers from Dennis and realizing that we were overpaying everywhere was not in good taste.
Our Verdict:
You can go definitely stay at Sky Villa for its beautiful property and amazing views. But you need to be quite careful while getting deals from the local staff as your chances of getting ripped is very likely. We suggest you venture out yourself and shop/speak directly to get the best deals.
Tips for Improvement:
We suggest you hire trained Housekeeping professionals to look after your property. This is drastically improve the quality as well as the overall experience of your clients.

Hi Shyam, thank you for staying with us and saying so many wonderful things about Sky VIlla. Im sorry that we couldnt meet your unrealistic price expectations at prices that are below cost. To be clear a bottle of beer from the wholesaler is 35php + 5php deposit and then we have to driver there get it and bring it back and then put it on ice so all in all we may make 5-10php of profit. or 10-20cent if we sell it at 50 php. which by the way is 130php less then you would spend for the same beer at Shangri-la and 50 php less than you would spent at a local bar. So excuse me but your very cheap and unreasonable in your expectations. Just because its a 3rd world doesn't mean our staff is your slave to work for free.

“Could be better”
Reviewed 10 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Sky villa, we expected a better stay there, however not a very pleasant experience.
First, the villa is not very clean and a bit dusty, there are many geci which terrify me and my friends.
Second, the location is quite uphill and the slope is steep. If you decide to stay in Sky Villa, please make sure you choose electric vehicle or van as transport mean, cause the motorbike maybe not strong enough to go up and a bit dangerous too.
Third, the care taker was a bit grumpy, it ll be much better if they can smile more and be more willing to help us.
But we enjoyed the breakfast they provide and overall is acceptable with fair price.

Best vacation id been on in a long time. The caretakers were very helpful and curtious. they help us to choose activities and places to go. The house was clean and if we needed supplies they got them for us.The house was very spacious with plenty of rooms. We had many activities to do such as snorkeling sailing shopping at the stores ,eating at many different resturaunts and lets not forget the zip line,wow.

“Nice view from roof top!!”
Reviewed 20 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

The staff was friendly. The villa was clean and quiet. However , the villa location is about 20 minutes walking distance to D`mall. So not recommend to senior citizen as the villa located at the hill. Besides that, the breakfast is simple and boring, everyday just eggs, sausages, corn beef , bread, tea and coffee.
During the last night of our stay, the 2 full time caretakers help to BBQ the pork, seafood and etc.. they are really helpful and always act politely.

“Great villa for groups seeking a little independence in Boracay”
Reviewed 5 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014
1
person found this review helpful

We rented the Sky Villa in July 2014.
Our group consisted of 8 adults and 4 children (6 to 13yo). The house is located on the quieter side of Boracay, great view from the roof, ideal for evening gathering.
Rooms are spacious, A/C units working well.
Kitchen is big and we used it several time to support our barbecue activities.
The house caretaker and his wife were always available to arrange the bits and pieces relating to logistics. Such as vans, replenishing drinks, food etc...
Going out, turn left, walk uphill for 500 meters and you are on the highest point of Boracay, turn right downhill and it is a 10 minutes walk down the beach where all the water activities of Boracay take place.
Todd, our point of contact for booking and overall arrangement was completely available and very fast answering everything we needed to know.
Great overall.
