Stayed in the Strand with my family for a week, we got the penthouse and one standard room. It was the only resort who replied very quicky and courteously to my query and they left me to make the decision in which rooms to take. The reservation staff was very patient and understanding and she replied very quicky through email. We were picked up on time from the airport as we got the exclusive transfers from them. Upon arrival at the resort, we were very impressed by the surroundings, there were lots of trees and plants. It was very relaxing!!. We ordered a late lunch; food has to be ordered 30 minutes in advanced caused they have to cook it, i think they don´t have precooked foods or frozen foods in the fridge that´s why you have to be patient. The sinigang was very delicious, we loved it. I think i odered sinigang na baboy thrice, my brother even wanted it for breakfast!!! The Penthouse was an ideal place to stay, it was very spacious and there was so much natural light. The shower didn´t work well, the water wasn´t very strong. We didn´t report this to the reception cause I think we were just too busy enjoying ourserlves that it didn´t bother us that much. Breakfast was ok, you have to advise them the day before what you would like to have and the time that you would have it.
The hotel staff were very friendly, they always had a smile on their faces and they always greet you. They respect your privacy too. The pool was great, the temperature was just right.
Yes, the resort it kinda far from the main action BUT it was ideal for us. The center of the island has become very crowded and noisy. And we went to boracay to relax, not to party. We just took a trike or walked to D´mall if we wanted to buy or see something. The little pathway going to the resort from the beach wasn´t well lighted at night, so it kinda freaked out my husband. but the villagers were always there hanging out, so it kinda made him felt safe.
We definitely enjoyed our stay there and would love to come back soon
