It was a nice hotel and offered very spacious accomodations. We were about 7 and the rooms were big enough to accomodate us. It was a serene hotel in Boracay, far from the noise of Boracay. Should you wish to enter the party scene, all you had to do is walk a few meters and you are there. The hotel...

The Strand resort in Boracay Philippines is a hidden gem. First time we went to Boracay in 2011 we stayed on station2 smacked at the centre of the beach. We had the greatest time as everything was accessible within just few steps literally. But this time (2016) we opted for somewhere away from the crowd but at the same time...

My boyfriend and another couple booked our stay in the 2BR Family Suite last April 27-May 1, 2016 for the Laboracay weekend. The hotel is situated in Station 1, past Discovery Shores, so that's roughly a 20-minute walk from D'Mall. It's pretty close to the beach shore (2 minutes away from the gate), but the usual method of going in...

Just got back from Boracay today. We were booked at The Strand from April 22-24, 2016. Just love the landscape of this resort. The trees, the pools, the rooms & the friendly staff contributed to our restful stay. Decent, romantic, quiet and very laid back. It was going back to the basics - when you need to hear the crickets...

Stayed here for 3 days on are trip. Rooms were nice and clean for an older hotel. Staff was a little hard to communicate with as they never spoke that great of English. Other than that the only complaints are the fact it is right beside a cementary and my laundry got mixed up with someone else's.

We stayed for 3 nights in this hotel, so far the hotel is nice and very quiet but beside it is the public cemetery in Boracay which we only knew when we arrived :(... You need to walked 5 minutes before reaching the end of station 1 which is a bit scary during night time. If you like to go...

Stayed couple of nights with kid 4 years old. Nice, clean rooms. Breakfast could have a bit larger portions. But the way to the beach spoiled all. Not my choice next time. It's better to stay more close to Station 1 if you want to enjoy White beach in full.

The strand is a nice and quiet place with friendly staff. the 1-bedroom suite was spacious but the TV was by the sala not the bed. The location is technically station 1. It's a 2-minute walk to boracay terraces resort which is the last resort at station 1. But you would have to walk thru a residential road with dogs...
