“DO NOT STAY HERE!!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2010

This place truly has the potential to be the nicest resort in Boracay but it's obvious that the owner gave up on the place many many years ago. I say again DO NOT STAY HERE!!! its a zero star hotel. The people who are giving this place a positive review must work for the resort because it's awful and will ruin your experience in what is truly one of the gems of the China Sea in Boracay.
Food Sucks, Service Sucks, Rooms Suck, Facilities Suck and the Prices Suck, I wouldn't come back here if they paid me!
DO NOT STAY HERE!!!

"The Panoly is a Good choice!” my husband said. It's his first time in Boracay. He liked the tranquility and the magnificent shore of the resort.

Our son who celebrated his 3rd birthday there really enjoyed his stay in Panoly. He got a free cake from Panoly and some stuffs. He said, “Mommy ayaw ko uwi” he doesn’t want to go home and likes to stay there.

The staffs are so friendly that our 3 year old son wanted to take them with us. The room is spacious, clean, organized with complete facilities except wi-fi.

I and my husband loved to sit and relax on the beach of the resort where we can have a drink, eat while listening to the sound of the waves and just watch our son playing on the sand. So relaxing… we had a great time!

My first time into Boracay and I want a quiet place to relax and the tricyle brought me to Panoly. Let me share you a little secret, this place is great , value for money, extremely courteous service and good food. Rooms are large and clean. We were happy! we found our sweet spot to romance. Next door is the Shangri La Resort which I heard is brand new and charge US 400 per night, we paid US 100 for the two of us including breakfast at the Panoly and we had the whole estate as our playground. They had only 85 rooms and low occupancy. You cannot ask for more. We are going back again for sure now that I know the owner's daughter Regina.

For us, the Panoly is a lot better for relaxation, space and privacy. I believe the hotel is catering for visitors who wish to have the same. It is not fair to compare the main beach with Panoly and incidentally the new Shangri La which is located just next to it. My family feel safe and protected and I do not belive I could allow my kids to roam the main beach without our presence.
For the price they charge for the space, I have nothing to complain.

The Panoly is quite a nice hotel with very friendly staff. It is located on a beautiful private and quiet beach. However it is far removed from all the action along White Beach and the road (or lack of) leading to the hotel is a steep hilly rough track with pot holes and only 1 or 2 shuttle buses going to and from the township per day, so basically you are stranded at the resort unless you are adventurous enough to pay one of the neighbors for a ride into town on the back of their motorbike, either that or you have to walk up the long and tiring track in the heat to get to the main road to jump on a tricycle. getting to and from the hotel is far far faaar more expensive than just getting around the built up areas around the island. As soon as u say the word panoly you automatically pay alot more! What else, it has almost no cell phone reception, no "line-out" from room phones, expensive and average food, no room service menu, half finished renovations after one one the main restaurants burned down... slack housekeeping, mini-bar was limited and expensive, staff exploited and underpaid (well, it is the Philippines), no pool towels anywhere near the pool, paper thin walls between the rooms....
Ok, now good stuff: friendly staff, nice rooms, gardens, nice pool and beach.
I think of "has been" or "could be" when I think of the Panoly. There are just too many other / better places to stay in Boracay to have to stay here, it might be good for a honeymoon...
Travelers note: There was a terrible typhoon whilst I was staying here and a large amount of the building was damaged, including my room, it was destroyed, while I was in it!!! the #1 scariest moment in my life!! I want to thank the staff for looking after myself and all the other guests at the resort, you did good! :)
