Red Coconut Beach Hotel

Reviewed 30 April 2014

We stayed here over Easter this year and really loved it. It's the best location right amongst all the action and very close the D'Mall but the beach front is the best as it's right on the beach with great beach beds, umbrellas and bar service! The restaurant is also really good and the beach front transforms into a really nice open air restaurant at night with really good food, we just loved it!
The bar at the front gets pumping at night though so probably best to get a room at the back, we had one there anyway as it was booked out and we didn't hear any noise at all.

And yes it is a bit expensive for the rooms, but the whole of Boracay is really, well especially at Easter and this was one of the cheaper places we found! But it's so worth it, if you're going to go all the way there you may as we'll enjoy it, we certainly did and the staff made it too!

Room Tip: Get a room at the back if you don't want to hear any noise, I think they're all the cheaper...

You pay for the location. The price is excessive when compared to most other resorts in the area.got a 2 star room at 5 star price.
Better resorts for the same price or less can be found minutes walk down the beach.

I just this second got home after spending roughly two weeks at the Red Coconut with my girlfriend. And wow.
Warm, welcoming, and beaming staff were so accommodating after a long tiring trip to arrive in Borocay at 10pm at night. From there the place only got better. Superbly located, the Red Coconut is ideally placed smack-bam in the middle of the island. Almost EVERYTHING is within walking distance! And if it's not, you can MAKE it walking distance if you're able to push yourself that little bit.
Again, the staff are fantastic. So kind and friendly, nothing you have to ask of them is too much, and it just made it feel like a bunch of friends than a group of people catering to your every need - but let's face it - they did exactly that.
AND THE FOOD! Wow - if there is one thing you need to do at the Red Coconut it is splurge out on a big of room service. Their drinks are to die for - and we never even got around to the alcoholic stuff! (Not that we are big drinkers anyway ;P) But the fruit juices and the shakes are screamingly delicious, and they carve a great open sandwich, burger, pizza, and more.
The buffet breakfasts are always excellent with copious amounts of fried crispy bacon, various cereals, gorgeous fresh fruits and of course those delicious drinks again! Plus a fair copious quantity of omelette and waffle chefs ready to take your order.
Plus - one of the best things about the Red coconut is they go WAY out of their way to organise your entire trip - all the activities you could want to partake in during your stay - be it ATVing, Zorbing, Water sports you name it - they can all be booked right from the hotel's lobby. And let's face it, you WILL get swamped by random people in Borocay trying to sell you cheapo versions of these activities - but seriously, the company that runs through the Coconut is fast, efficient, and is dedicated to ensuring safety above all things. The booking is easy as picking up the phone and asking for the activities, and then a staff member will be in the lobby waiting for you at the appointed time. Sure it can be 500 pesos or so more expensive to book through the hotel, but seriously - what is this, like $12 bucks? Get over it! It's worth it for the piece of mind.

Okay so now I get to the bad bit. And again, they are few, and mostly centre around the fact that I am NOT much of a party-goer. The Red Coconut may be ideally located, but it is NOT the best place for a good night's sleep. The hotel's bar is open all day long, and starting from 4pm till midnight, the bar will be pounding out music to wake the dead. Great fun if you feel like getting sloshed, but if you actually want to sleep - don't expect to get any before midnight. Ouch - my aching head! X\

But seriously guys - that is IT. There is nothing else wrong with this place. I love it, I'd go back to it! In fact I'm already wishing I was back there right now!

P.S. Don't forget to try out the Coco Café right next door - according to my girlfriend, one of the best Halo Halos you can get! ;)

Red Coconut is probably one of the best places to stay in Boracay. This is a great hotel in terms of location, service and food.

The Upside:
1. The location is its most compelling attribute, being right smack in the heart of the beehives of activities. It is the next-door neighbor of D'Mall, where everybody goes for shopping, dining, spa, and what have we to do in this pulsating center of beach island resort in the Philippines.

2. The staff are very friendly and are very attentive. You get a bar-concocted welcome drinks of your choice upon entry.

3. The rooms are comfortable with soft bed and pillows, good working facilities like aircon, water heater in bathroom, etc.

4, The food is great is is priced reasonably. Buffet breakfast has good variety of items and are prepared well. Drinks like coffee, milk or customized shake from the bar like tropical fruit shakes can be had. Buffet lunch is well-balanced with vegetable, fish or seafood, pork and beef prepared very well by the hotel chef are always available and were not repeated in my 3-day stay. There is no buffet dinner but they offer set menu. The full Buffets are priced for only PhP 450.

5. Coco Cafe, the hotel's coffee shop is also a great place with delectable cakes, sandwiches and coffee, of course. You can stay here and enjoy its free reliable wi-fi.

6. The toiletries is also good with the usual stuff of soap, lotion, shampoo, condiotioner, etc. You can request for more delivered to your room in a jiffy.

7. The clothes cabinet has this extra 2-red umbrella for use of hotel guests. It also has safety deposit box and a free red eco bag for the take.

8, Everything else that one can find in a 4-star hotel are in order.

The Con:
1. The room TV is so small. probably 16" in size which is positioned too far away from the head board of your bed. The cable signal is also not excellent with some channels giving you blurry beams.

2. The swimming pool is rather small and is situated beside the restaurant (which in turn faces the beach front with lots of people passing by) with no put-up barrier like plants or mobile divider whatsoever that can give swimmers a little bit of privacy. Also, there is also only one pool shower.

3. The ladders leading to the rooms upstairs are so steep vertically challenged and weak-kneed people might have a tough time with.

I am writing this review 4 months after I stayed at this hotel and I still remeber it as the warmest of memories. The rooms were great, the location was perfect, the bar was really nice as well as the restaurant and the staff were just so nice to you and very keen to help.
WHEN I come back to Boracay I will stay at this hotel again!

One thing that was extra nice was that the hotel bar by the beach was really popular at night so lots of tourists from the whole area came together there at the evening.

Room Tip: The rooms at the top (4th floor) with sea view are the best, but it is good to know that there is no...

I stayed for four nights in February. I booked their roundtrip transportation pickup from the airport in Caticlan. Super easy and escorted the whole way from the airport to the hotel. Check-in was smooth. Our room was up on the top floor (4th), no lift available but we knew that heading into it. It really isn't a problem for us as we're are young and healthy. Older people or those out of shape might want to consider specifically booking a room on the 1st floor.

The room was super clean and attended to each day of our stay. Complimentary bottled water daily. Wifi was available at cost in the rooms; however, we opted for the free wifi in the lobby, restaurant and bar area. We could even pick up signals at the beach chairs in front of the hotel!

The restaurant did a great bbq each night and there was some live entertainment of a dance show put on at the beach front of the hotel. There was a discount at the restaurant/bar if you were staying at the hotel. The bar was great and seemed to have a lot of visitor (even non hotel guests) each night. Good music if you're in your 20s/30s (which we are so we enjoyed it).

Beach front area was perfect. Security guards kept an eye on your things if you left your hotel beach chairs to hit the water for a dip.

Overall a great stay and perfect location right in the middle of Station 2. Definitely stay here again in the future.

Room Tip: If you're older/out of shape be sure to specifically ask for first floor room otherwise you coul...
