Boracay Beach Resort
Ranked #76 of 148 Hotels in Boracay
Reviewed 30 July 2012

We stayed here for 4d/3n last April 2012. Finally a vacation away from work.

We inquired for the availability of their rooms directly. Although there was some confusion with their business email address, we finally got our inquiries answered. We also requested for RT transfers from and to Caticlan so that the trip would be as hassle free as possible. The guide was there to pick us up and helped us carry our bags.

Upon arrival they served us cold towels and a nice welcome drink which was refreshing from all the walking and heat of the sun especially for people who didn't get any "Zzz'z". At that time the staff was very friendly and accommodating.

On our first 2 nights we booked the bungalow because we wanted to have a feel of the hammock, lol!

The room was adequate and comfy. The bungalow was out in the middle of the resort and has a garden feel to it especially at night where you can hear the gecko's making their noise.

On our last night our room got upgraded. There was a problem with their system, so we got upgraded to the suite.

The suite had the view of the beach and it was lovely. The room was clean and there were 2 beds. It seems that they had adjust the room layout to add an extra bed for us.

There was also a wedding event and since we wanted to chill out by the beach, we sat just outside the premises however we got scooted by one of the staff in charge of the event. Fortunately, she apologized because she thought that we were not hotel guest and receive a complimentary dish.

WiFi didn't have much range. It was weak in the rooms and at night for some reason it did not work even with all the passwords provided to us.

There was something off about this place as to why we needed to "buy/pay" for ice.
We ordered a couple of beers from their restaurant and we were drinking by their beach front. But when we requested for ice, they said that we have to pay for it. Since we wanted to drink cold beers to enjoy our bonding session we paid for the bucket of ice.

Same thing applied when we bought our colas from the convenient store. This time around, they didn't have any buckets to put our ice in so we ended up paying for a plastic bag of ice. It was our first time to encounter to "buy/pay" for ice in a hotel that we checked in.

Over all, the place is in a good location. Beach front and all but their wifi needs repeaters, the staff should familiarize themselves with their checked in guest, and what is the deal with the ice? That is the most baffling of all..

We stayed here in February for a week with our 13 month old son. We booked the ocean view suite which was extremely spacious and had a very large balcony. The ocean view suite included breakfast and laundry *every day* (which was extremely worth it for us). Breakfast was reasonable for us - a selction of several dishes - from american style to pinoy style. We ordered mango shakes every morning too - who wouldn't? The resort is about a 5 minute walk to the d'mall and we practically went there every day to get food or snacks which was cheaper than eating somewhere on the beach. We were worried about the noise since we had a 13 month old with us and it was close to some of the night life, but in the bedroom, you couldn't hear anything! We lounged on the chairs on the balcony and people watched every day - loved watching all the tourists and the locals interact. The location for us was absolutely perfect. Especially the beach. They had lounge chairs and the staff would come over and bring umbrellas and constantly move them around so that you always had shade. If we all went into the water, they watched our stuff. The staff pretty much stayed outside all day to watch everyones belongings so we didn't have to worry about our belongings being stolen. This was totally worth staying here too! The view from the resort on the beach was a few yards from where the sailboats dock and take off. We actually liked watching all the sailboats around the area, but others might not like that. Personal preference. We originally wanted to stay closer to station 1, but after walking there, it's so remote! The only place in station 1 that we liked was Jona's shakes. This resort was located near station 1/2 and closer to all the activities. We had friends that stayed at the shangri-la hotel and that was extremely remote - a little too remote for us. Only dining was at the hotel, unless you took the bus to the d'mall.

So all in all, we liked staying at the boracay beach resort. Everyone was friendly and we keep talking about going back one day. Maybe when the kids are older and we can do more activites on the water.

My biggest cons about the hotel was the AC in the room. The only ac in the room was in the bedroom and not in the living room or bathroom. It got pretty hot in the living room during the day - especially when you want to come up to your room from the beach. We would congregate in the bedroom. Also, the internet was horrible in the bedroom, so that would make us go out to the living room to use the wi-fi. Also, the walk from the main street to the resort wasn't fun - pretty long actually - with a 13 month old and luggage, especially when you traveled all day long. Oh yeah, and there were ants in the living room. Never complained about it though.

And if you take a tricycle to the resort, tell them that's it's attached to cafe del mar. People are more familiar with the restaurant which is attached to the resort. Also, we were concerned about not having a pool. NOT an issue with the beach. No waves and you could walk so far out in the water.

my husband and i stayed here for 7 nights in may. we booked a garden bungalow and were lucky enough to get upgraded to a garden suite simply because it was available!!! we were wrapped as we had been travelling around the philipines for a week already and staying in nipa style accomodtion so it was a welcome relief to escape the damp room feeling.
our room was huge,bright, great air con and a big bathroom. loved it.
the "garden area" of our suite was just a few drab plants around the white wall that encloses the very small court yard. as we were upgrade we obviously didn't care but if you booked this suite you would probably be disappointed with that.
the room was very clean and spacious. big wardrobe , couch ,tv with cable, tea and coffee making facilities, big shower (no curtain or screen but somehow it just worked! no water on the floor ever) large sink area and plenty of towels.
the resort is 10 steps from the beach and in the best location of the whole beach front. its boat station 2 but nearer to 3 so it was quite without being boring and close to all the entertainment along the beach. there are beach lougnes and tables on the sand and the beach water is so beautiful. like a post card. it was mind blowing.
i would highly recommend using the hotel transfer service. it was money very well spent. i believe it worked out cheaper than if we did it all ourselves but more importantly there was no stress getting from the airport to the hotel, which once you have been through the process you will realise it is not as simple as you may have thought. our guy was friendly, carried our bags, got us straight through all check points, straight on the boat etc etc ,it was all just so much better than if we had tried to buy the appropriate tickets ourselves and get different transports here and there. trust me and use the hotel transfer!
station 1 is a very nice beach but a little removed from the restaurants, station 2 is nice beach and lots of shops etc, station 3 is ordinary beach and quite far from everything.
the breakfast was good and big serves. we ate dinner 1 night at the resort bar but it was a bit pricey compared to elsewhere. the drinks are cheap though.
i would recommend borocay in the months before may as there is no wind then. we were here in mid may and wind made the water a little wavy but it was also a nice breeze in the heat. we had just 1 day where there was no wind and the beach was spectacular. so flat and blue. it was amazing.
boracay beach resort was fantastic and we would definitely stay there again

After spending a long week in another part of the Philippines, this was a haven of rest. We stayed in a garden suite, were handed a wonderful kool mango drink on arrival and had great service on the beach front. The white sand beach was clean and the water crystal blue. We felt safe and well cared for.

Room Tip: The garden suites are inside the hotel, cooler and quieter than the ocean view rooms. The ocean view...

We went to Boracay Beach Resort just last month. We love the area especially that its near the D'Mall. We had a Garden Suite and I would say that for a suite that just cost almost 5k a night, its one of the best considering that its a beach front resort. The suite is very spacious and have a good environment ambience. Please follow me on my blog for a complete look of the suite that we used. just click this link. http://geneuz.blogspot.com/2012/06/boracay-trip-garden-suite.html

Room Tip: Choose the suite. It has great space and your own veranda
