I've been to the Philippines 4 times now since meeting my wife in 2005. I've visited many spots in the islands; Bohol, Batad, Coron, Cebu, Dumagete, Manila, Puerto Princessa, etc, etc, etc. Boracay Beach Club (BBC) had the best accommodations of anywhere I've stayed.
When we arrived, there was a juice drink ready for us (which was appreciated after our long, hot trek). We were immediately greeted by Olga (the marketing director) and she made us feel very welcome.
That night we were offered a complimentary sunset cruise by BBC. We went to the beach-front bar, the bartender walked us down to the sailboat. This seems simple enough, but it's the little things that impressed me about BBC. The bartender asked our names and seemed genuinely interested in our experience. This is refreshing when so many of his peers offer so little in the way of service.
The complimentary breakfast was delicious, as were the smoothies at the bar.
The pool was clean and the grounds well maintained.
There is a very nice view from the roof.
I do have one suggestion though. If you are going to BBC, be sure your driver knows how to get there. We walked for around an hour carrying our bags down the beach because we were sent towards Boracay Beach Resort (btw- there is also a Boracay Beach House). BBC is also called Ariel's House, is close to Obama Grill (but who knows what their name will be with the next president), and is close to the basketball court.
