“An Aquamarine Dream”
Reviewed 17 July 2006

Wow....I have never seen a beach more beautiful than Boracay"s White Beach. I was there in late June and was amazed by both the beach and the people. It was like "a blue-green aquamarine dream". We stayed at Bans Beach Resort in a small cottage with a veranda (near boat station 1). It was clean and had all the amenities a visitor would require. The staff were friendly and courteous....I will definately come back...In fact I will be going back next year.

My family stayed at Bans for 3 days and 2 nights and we had a pleasant experience there. We were on a budget and a friend suggested this place as it had some of the lowest rates in Station 1 and it was beachfront. Of course, the dearth of information available online had me worried. I was , in fact , ready to be disappointed. I knew it would be a no - frills place with no pool or fancy amenities but I really didn't need them. Our room was a nice little cottage with a native bahay kubo design which i liked better than the large imposing cement structures of the fancier hotels.Although it turns out the interiors were made of solid cement as well. Inside , we had a 21-inch cable tv, aircon, a small ref, an electric thermos, a clean bathroom with surprisingly strong water pressure for my hot and cold shower and a cute verandah where my brother hung out to "chill" . I did see that the hut beside ours only had a 14-inch tv, so amenities might differ. I also liked how the huts were separate from each other so I wouldn't have to worry about stepping out of the sea and dripping on the hallway. The staff was friendly and accommodating. They offered to keep our bags in their small office while we waited for the previous occupants of our room to check out. They also helped us coordinate our island tour and our tricycle out of the island.

My only complaint would be the free breakfast for 2 people only even if there were 5 of us. The meal was not filling as it consisted of ( either 1 shrivelled longganisa or 2 vienna sausages or a small portion of corned beef or half a bangus), 1 cup of rice, 1 egg and coffee or tea.
Bottom line: Stay at Bans if you're looking for a practical and affordable place that's clean and comfortable.
