We were met at the airport and escorted to a bus, then ferry, then van to our hotel. We arrived around 10am to one of the most beautiful views I think I have ever seen. Check in was very efficient by Debbie the Manager, she was brilliant. We were given delicious icy welcome drinks and then shown to our rooms.

My first impression when shown our room was how super clean it was. It smelt beautiful and there was not a speck of dust anywhere, very impressive compared to where we had just stayed.

We were 2 families staying at 357, myself, husband and daughter shared an executive room, a bit small but you don't spend that much time in the room anyway. The other family of 2 adults and 2 children shared the penthouse suite. We had 5 nights there, the other family had 7.

Shella is the Assistant Manager and a real gem, she is so efficient and organised and a real asset to the hotel. Both Debbie and Shella seem to always be around and nothing was ever too much trouble. We requested special meals and every request was happily met. The continental breakfast was included in our rate but for an extra 50php (A$1.15) we upgraded to the additional bacon & eggs. All prices are very reasonable compared to most of the other places we ate and we enjoyed all our meals and great cocktails watching the sunset.

357 is located at Station 3 which is about a 20min walk from all the action. There are plenty of good restaurants, bars, dive shops, massage spas etc nearby so you don't really need to leave the area and the beach is divine. No noisy jet skis like other areas. The white sand never gets hot and the water is beautiful although we did have some green algae when we were there, but it is clean and doesn't worry you. The hotel provides beach towels, sun beds and umbrellas on the beach and Patrick is more than happy to bring you a cold drink while you are enjoying the sun.

I thought the accommodation was a bit expensive having been in Thailand recently, but it was peak time and seems comparable to other places on the island.

We would definitely stay at 357 again and recommend it to anyone looking for a gorgeous relaxing beach holiday, especially for people with children as the location is perfect.

Room Tip: We were the first room downstairs so close to restaurant, beach and free WIFI, the penthouse is only...

We stayed for 3 nights in their Suite and couldn't have been happier with their service and location.
The hotel is set steps from the beach, on the quiet south end of White Beach, near Station 3 (Angol). Perfect for those who want a relaxing experience but can quickly take a 10 minute walk to the more busy parts of the island.
All levels of service from the staff were exemplary and the included breakfast was delicious. Though our room was appropriately decorated, I felt it was a bit too cramped with furniture for the space.
For value, I can't compare with other hotels along the beach but I can assure your room will be comfortable, clean and the staff will ensure your stay is as relaxing as you want it to be.
The free beach towels and available beach chairs are a major plus!
I would not hesitate to recommend this place to friends and family.

Room Tip: I can only vouch for their second floor suite, facing the water. it is ideal for two casual travele...

357 hotel/resort is located right on the beach at station 3, boracay. this is a small establishment, with 10 suites. the rooms are extremely clean, well appointed and beautifully maintained (aircon included). the same can be said of the "public"areas of the resort. for having a snack, dining or relaxing with a good book there is a deck structure (at ground level) part under cover, and part open, facing onto the beach. an excellent place to have a "coldie" (there is a small bar on the premises) and watch the world go by. the food is excellent and could be best described as along the lines of home cooking (give the king hamburger, mushroom omelete and the banana split a go - great stuff)
debbie and her staff will cater for your every need. they are the friendliest people you will ever meet and they have the happy knack of being there when you want them, but out of sight when not required.
i could say a lot more about 357 but as you will have gathered, i'm pretty rapt in the place. give it a go - i'm certain you wont be disappointed. as i say, i found a gem on the beach!!

by the way - in case you are wondering. i was referred to 357 by a travel agent in manila.i have no vested interest in 357 but i like to see people who genuinely do their best, and work hard, get just rewards for their efforts. the management and staff of 357 certainly deserve such.

We stayed at 357 Boracay in August with our two kids (under five years of age). It's located at the quieter end of Station 3. The proximity of the rooms to the beach cannot be beat! I think it took us about twenty steps to get from our hotel room door to the shore. With two kids who just want to play on the sand, this is a big plus. The staff delivered great service. Ms. Debbie, the manager, sets the tone for the place. They were professional, helpful, and welcoming. Here is an example: on our last day at the hotel we were transferring to a different part of the island and it was pouring down rain. We had two kids and two pieces of luggage. Ms. Debbie asked one of the staff to accompany us with an umbrella. He walked us all the way to the waiting van which was about half a mile away in the pouring rain. Now that's service! The welcoming drinks were delicious (kalamansi smoothie) and the rooms and bathrooms were very clean.

So with all that's going for it, why just 3 stars? Unfortunately the fantastic location also makes it inconvenient if you have small kids, are infirm, or unable to walk long distances. It's about a 20 minute walk to D-mall or you can go by tricycle (100php each way). There's no direct access to the hotel via tricycle. The tricycle stop is give or take a half mile away. Walking even this short distance in the pouring rain with two unhappy toddlers makes for a miserable time. The other thing is that wifi is accessible only outside of the rooms. For us unlucky folks who have to work, this was quite inconvenient. The rooms are on the smallish side. We were in the Kamuning room and I'd say it felt a bit small for two adults and two kids but perfect for two adults.

357 would have been a four star if it were just me and my husband but with small kids, I'd have to give it a 3.

If your looking for quality, service and comfort your at the right spot. On arrival graciously greeted by manager with a marvelous chocolate flavored ice drink. Treated with genuine friendlyness and concern for your well being. Rooms spacious, clean, lcd tv, good intenet and bathroom very clean with modern fixtures. Extremely comfortable location, right next to beach, away from the hustle and bustle of Dmall and party stations. Staff goes out of their way to accomodate and assist you. Service always with a smile. Unfortunately a very small hotel so book early or you'll miss out.

Some thoughts: It is a moderate to brisk walk to restaurants and shops on station 2 and 1. Have the staff give you directions to where to pick up a trike then go to either station 2 and 1 then walk back on your return.

Even though its a small hotel it has a small and wonderful restaurant. The pork backribs were fantastic. I suggest you place your order in the morning as they can customize to your taste by obtaining fresh seafood for your dinner.

Staff will set up lounge chairs for you should you decide to relax on the beach. There is no pool but not necessary because the beach is just a few meters away.
You love this place if your looking to get away from corporate, plastic and artificial hotel systems.

Room Tip: Small hotel, all the rooms are nice. Make sure to look at all the artwork made with shell fish. Ma...

From the hundreds of hotels in Boracay, I'm glad I chose 357. We were set to arrive on Holy Week and I have fairly high standards when choosing a place to stay. First and foremost it had to be VERY clean especially the bathroom, then comfortable enough to sleep soundly through the night without any distractions, also I wanted something with a good location so I can easily access the different attractions the island had to offer, and I wanted all of these in something affordable. The really good hotels were predictably very expensive, and most cheaper ones either had poor service or looked run-down.

357 Boracay is located at peaceful station 3, just a few minutes away from the bustling and noisy station 2 where most of the action comes from. If you're the type who isn't too much into partying and crowds, this is the perfect place for you, especially on Holy Week season when the density of people can sometimes be annoying.

The hotel manager, Ms. Debbie, is a very helpful lady who will attend to your every need, you can ask her for tour packages and she will recommend the best ones since there are also a lot of 'salesmen' who will try and extort you.

On days that there were long lines on some restaurants we wanted to dine in, we would just retreat to 357 and have them prepare the food we order from their menu. Their food is acceptable, not the best in my opinion, but it beats having to sit for 45 minutes to get a table at some other Boracay restaurant. :)

Room Tip: From what I've heard, the Waling waling room is the best, we just chose the executive room and i...
