Australia, California, Carribean, Cuba, Fiji, Florida, Hawaii, Indonesia, Malaysia, Mediterrenean, New Zealand, Thailand, Vancouver… are places that you would associate with beautiful beaches but what blew my mind is a place called Boracay, yes Boracay in the province of Aklan, Philippines…. Sea is just like the extension of the rainbow that is as fascinating as irresistible with shallow and clear water that you can see fish swim. White powdery sand that does not get hot even in the middle of the day and you could walk barefoot for miles. Nothing like it compared to the vibrant activites that start at daybreak and extend till the wee hours as friendly, carefree folks frolick and enjoy the endless entertainment along the beach. Some would argue of too much noise at night that you can not get a good night sleep but that is all part of the package that Boracay offers. Also, try the sailboat swaying to the ocean’s wave during sunset and feel the invigorating and exhilarating experience while watching the sun goes down. Have you ever heard of Filipino hospitality? Nowhere else typifies such a trait than the Boracay Mandarin Island Hotel which is smacked right in the middle of effervescent cultural center, close to the Talipapa (Wet Market), D’Mall and scuba diving. I had the pleasure of staying there for 4 days and nothing beats the pampering, the attention, stellar and extremely courteous staff. Aside from the close proximity to the beach, it has its own area solely for guests with dedicated sun beds and umbrellas with security monitoring. Breakfast was varied but more than what is being offered in Europe or good old USA ( Continental /English breakfast) as they have bacon, eggs, toast and juices, too. Boracay offers so much food variety and for adventurous foodmeisters, the Talipapa is close, where you can buy fresh seafood and cooked to your liking. So do not complain, nobody is asking you to stick with what the hotel offers, go out and taste what Boracay has to offer! Boracay Mandarin Island Hotel has given me optimum pleasure, very relaxing and enjoyable, yet unforgettable and long lasting memories. Keep up the good work and uphold the true spirit of The Filipino Hospitality….
