Went to Boracay last 31 Dec. 2013. Since it is super peak season, almost all fine hotels were already fully booked. Was only able to transfer to Boracay Mandarin Hotel on January 1, 2014. Hotel is located in Station 2 near D'Mall. It is a beach-front hotel with swimming pool. We stayed in room 321 and was really nice. Value for money? I think hotel rate was quite expensive. Felt that I can get a better hotel with their rate. But then again, since my visit was super peak season, I guess, I couldn't complain much. The room was clean, bed and pillows gave us a comfortable sleep. I really liked that our room had a veranda overlooking the beach. We stayed there at night, relaxing while sipping hot tea. The live music at their beachfront can also be heard from our veranda so it was really nice and cool. The bathroom was standard and was ok. The staffs were courteous and helpful at all times. Beach towels are available at the front desk. The breakfast buffet was fine and they have different menu every morning. They open at 6:30am. It was just unfortunate that our flight back to Manila was quite early 11am via Kalibo so we had to check out very early around 6am. Over all, our stay in Boracay Mandarin Hotel was nice and nothing to complain about. Maybe I'll consider going back here if only I can get discounted hotel rates. Otherwise, I may have to consider other Station 2 hotels.
