“The best hotel I have ever stayed in”
Reviewed 23 August 2013

The Hampstead Hotel is truly amazing.

My boyfriend and I stayed there in April of this year for 10 days. Upon arrival we were greeted by various members of staff who immediately seated us in the Bar area served us compilmentary drinks. We were were then shown to our room which was beautiful and comfortable and very clean. This standard was kept up throughout our stay (and the supply of cookies)
The staff are a total credit to the hotel, they are always very happy, always smiling and always very happy to assist and they have a wealth of knowledge about the area general culture. By the end of our stay we were on first term names with them and it was a real shame to be leaving what felt like a home away from home and such brilliant people. Personal service at its best!

The breakfast is amazing! The roof terrace is so comfortable quiet and the best spot of Boracay for sunsets and a gin and tonic! The position of the hotel is fabulous, just set back from the beach (1minute walk) in what feels like the most secret spot on the island where all the neighbours hang out and play basket ball and eat.

I cannot recommend this place more, if you go to Boracay you HAVE to stay here!

went to the area with a couple of friends. I told the driver where I was going and he looked at me like I was crazy. He still asked around and found where I was staying.the employees treated me extremely well. I enjoyed myself thoroughly. The staff was extremely friendly and the Hampstead Became my home away from Home.I was thoroughly impressed with the place and would highly suggest it to any one else!

Hi ! Thanks for the review! Yes, we are tucked back on the hill-side...we like being 'hard to find' if you know what I mean. Next time you come you'll notice our new signage around the area! We are glad you enjoyed your time with us, it's nice to hear you say "home away from home", that's what we strive to accomplish! See you again soon!

That was an escape and lovely holiday at Hampstead Hotel! I have no negative comments for this excellent hotel. Stylish, great location, professional service, incredibly friendly staff. Big round of applause for Cigar lounge and Bistro, something you must experience - a very unique place for Boracay with nice food and great atmosphere!!!

Hi, thank you for the great review! You really like the 8H Bistro it seems, enjoying food where you feel comfortable is important! We have the 8H Bistro listed in the Restaurant section of Trip Advisor, if you would like to rate us there as well :)

This is quite a place... The restaurant brings you back to the twenties, they have a superb cigar room, the rooms are modern, the rooftop deck is a perfect chill out spot, the staff are the friendliest on the island, the food is great and yet you are but a three minute walk to the best beach in the world... The villa, with its privacy and superb facilities is a must try the next time around...

Hampstead is a great getaway from the hustle and bustle of Boracay. Tucked away from busy white beach, Hampstead offers a refreshing new vibe, even to island locals like us. Chill out in their awesome rooftop bar and enjoy the sunset from a different view point. They have great food, nice refreshing air conditioning and fast wifi. Highly recommended!

The hotel has only 8 rooms, hence no high density and love it! you get more attention by their staffs and personalized touch. The hotel came with ammeneties that were very good, especially if you have had a oily massage at the beach, their soap does wonders to clean it off!

Upon arrival, you get greeted by name and always with a smile! even those that are with graveyard shifts will still smile and offer you anything you need!

Breakfast was super yummy!!! Crepes with banana / mango is highly recommended!

Walking towards the beach, you get to see real culture and the passion of the pinoys loving basketball, hanging around the streets, Cross the road and you reach heaven on earth!! the white sand beaches which is on boat station 1, where the beaches seems to look better than the other boat stations... and quieter!

This is a must stay hotel if you ask me. Perfect combination for flash packers with limited budget and those with family or prefer a quiet night, don't get me wrong, walking out to the mainroad and there are pubs nearby to party.. but a good night sleep! this is the place!!!!

Room Tip: Those with weak fitness should request to stay room 1-4 on the first floor.

Hi Julia! WOW sounds like you had a nice trip to the island!! I'm gad you enjoyed your Hampstead experience, as you confirmed ... it truly is the staff making the magic happen. I agree with you, even coming to work each day passing through the church and basketball courts give us a great appreciation for the culture...and yes the beach is especially nice in this boat station area :) We look forward to welcoming you back soon. Cheers!

Getting around in the Philippines was a real challenge. We've spent almost half a day getting from Manila to Boracay. The experience was not the most pleasant, to say the least.
Everything changed once we entered the doors of this hotel. Everything was great about it. The service, the food, the incredibly helpful and friendly staff, the rooms, the view, and the location. This is a great hotel even by the western standards. There are few rooms, so it's never crowded. They really know how to treat their guests.
I highly recommend this place.

Hey, wow yes you touched on something there...with few rooms we CAN treat our guests as individuals! That's what we strive for at Hampstead, glad we delivered for you! Hope the trip 'out' from Boracay was better than 'into' Boracay! See you next time!
