Although this accommodation was not horrible, I am surprised how there are so many excellent reviews.
For us, it was average. I felt a little deceived when we entered our room after seeing the reviews and photos on their website. We had the suite overlooking the pool, which sounds great but actually makes for little privacy.
We were told that we could eat the fruit provided but it would only be free on the first day(?). The shower was one of the worst I have ever encountered, and this was important after the sand, sweat and dirt of Boracay. There was no pressure, and it was difficult to warm up. With the kitchenette though, I used a saucepan from the kitchen to collect water to give my hair a proper rinse.
If you leave the room, when you get back don't be surprised if the air con is switched off. Returning to the B&B mid afternoon we were surprised that our room had not been cleaned, until we discovered that the same staff are used in the sister hotel down the beach. Obviously their guests are more important.
The breakfast was very good, and a decent price, however the 'call switch' did not work so both days we had to go find a staff member to place our order.
I was surprised after seeing on the website that it was a under-12yo free zone, that there were in fact young children in the pool (directly outside our room!).
The 'private beach' was a small, rocky, dirty area that I would not dream of spending time on, considering the other beaches Boracay is famed for. Although it is possible to walk to the main strip of the island, it might be more comfortable to get a tricycle. Beware these might not be able to get you up the hill where the villa is. For us as a young couple, we seriously considered moving to another hotel on the White Beach side of the island. However if you want somewhere quiet, and away from any sort of noise (apart from the construction site next door), this place could be for you.
With all the other accommodation options, I definitely not stay here again.
