The rooms in this hotel are good and spacious. There is something that kinda looks like a kitchen, but that can only be used to e.g. boil water for coffee. The room has satellite tv and WiFi, though the latter did not work when we were there. The staff is polite and friendly. The garden was nice but kind of messy. They were renovating the area surrounding the two pools (they have a kiddie pool and a normal pool) so it was quite noisy and messy. Then again, the renovation was badly needed, because you could literally get screwed by the screws sticking out of the wooden floor boards. The resort is very near the end of the white beach, though not too close to be spoilt by the tackiness and the many, many tourists. Personally, I like Puerto Galera, Bohol, or Palawan better than Boracay. Boracay is too small for that many tourists and the prices are downright crazy (but note that we went there during Christmas). Puka beach and Bulabog beach (spell check!) are more interesting than white beach IMHO, at least when you're with a family.
