How can I not love this hotel? It has one of the best beachfront views, highly commendable staff, they serve good food and they offer big, clean homey rooms. The location is very safe, they have security guards looking over the safety of their guests and the rates are very reasonable given its good location. It's just a few steps...

Great location especially for nightlife and reasonably priced (we paid approx. £30 GBP per night). Staff were extremely helpful and friendly, also security was really good as well. Downfall - rooms are a little dated.

It's far from the best, but it's absolutely one of the better options. We chose to stay here because the nearby hotels were fully booked. We dined at their restaurant first because before in order to have a feel of the place. They have good food, so that's what sold me initially. The rooms were well-appointed and it's beachfront which...

We hadn't booked anything beforehand our arrival. We got it recommended from on of our transport operators. And it turns out, we had good time there. I mean, generally, you can't trust locals with your money, but this one seems to have been genuine. We had the big balcony towards the shore, and we only paid 3000PS. Obviously we undertook...

This place is affordable if you were to stay in a group of 4-5 people. Located at Station 1, beach front. The price of the room is affordable. The service was spectacular. The rooms were clear and neat. The bathroom too. The foods were sumptuous! I dont care if I have to eat on their restuarant for our whole stay....

I was hesistant to book this resort at first since i havent heard of it before. We initially planned to stay at Boracay Regency but the rooms are fully booked. I do not regret staying here. Though they do not have an elegant lobby or amenities like pool but the location is perfect, the rooms are clean and the ambiance...

This hotel is located directly along the beach, one can take the breakfast with the feet in the white sand. Its proximity to all major places is perfect, during the day its only a few minutes walk to D-Mall, so that shopping and finding food is made easy, in the evening it is close to nightlife attractions such as bamboo...

We enjoyed our stay in Chrystal Sand.All of the staff are very friendly.We had the deluxe room and had the amazing sea view from our balcony.It was like a scenery from a postcard.We wouldn't forget it.The only negative side is the loud music at night coming from the hotel on the right side, the District hotel.

Whenever I'm with family, this is always the llace we want to stay. After spending a night at a cheaper hotel @ La Bella Casa, we checked in this hotel. We always love this place coz its quieter at night. No beachside bar and no beachside restaurant that bothers you. Staff are always hospitable, knows us already and really tend...
