We stayed for 7 nights at Pinjalo during our Philippines trip in April 11 just before easter weekend. We enjoyed the hotel very much, especally as you can also use the facilities at calypso diving hotel with its beachfront bar.
The hotel is about 2 min walking from the beach, so you do not have ocean view. However, thanks to that it is in a very calm area and one can sleep. The gardens of the hotels are beautiful and there is pool, which we never used as we usually stayed at the beach.
There is second (diving) hotel just at the beach with another pool. The restaurant and the bar are also located at the calypso. Breakfast is served in the restaurant here. The breakfast was a rich buffet (asian style with rice and noodels but also western style with bread, eggs, bacon, etc).
Service is very good (there are lots of servants, so it actually has to be good).
We had twice the mongolian buffet for dinner, which is all you can eat and good food.
They have free wifi at Pinjalo as well as at Calypso.
We were also diving with Calypso. They have several western and Philippine divemaster / instructors and new equipment at a fair price (around USD 40 per dive).
Overall we really enjoyed staying at Pinjalo / Calypso and would certainly visit again, when coming back to Boracay.
