White House Boracay: White House Boracay (1)
Stayed here for my Boracay trip with my cousin Mike. It was his first time and he clearly told me to book a resort at a quiet part of the beach, some place where he can bum around. He was the one who actually chose to stay here.
The rooms were great, and since it was off season, the very beautiful manager upgraded our rooms from Deluxe (2 single beds) to Super Deluxe (1 double bed and 1 single bed).
The only complaints I had was the mosquitos and even if i was under the comforter, i was still bitten. But this isn't about the hotel but with the weather when we got there I think..
Over all, I'd love to come back here and I recommend this as a mid-priced resort in Station 1.
There are several to this resort:
1. Cabanas - which was a big selling point for me. Even though we stayed there on an off season (July 2006), the front of the beach was boarded up.
2. Swimming Pool - the deepest part is about 4.5 feet, right under the mini water fall
3. Location - in the quiet area, north of Station 1. Very near the Seawind resort. The resort on their left is Sur Boracay, on their right is a private resort of the Brent International School
4. John the Barman - he tends the bar (Wetlands), very friendly, very helpful!
5. Amanda the Manager - she was very very accomodating :)

Boracay Beach Chalet: Boracay Beach Chalet
Located right in the middle of white beach (station 2), near restaurants (dmall among them), and souvenier shops. The resort provides a 5-gallon purified water to each unit which is very useful since purified water is a little expensive on the island.
High season rate (2006) - Deluxe - 4000+; Jr. Suite - 6000+
Low seaon rate (2006) - Deluxe - 2000+; Jr. Suite - 4000+

White House Boracay: White House Boracay (2)
Their super deluxe room is housed in the 2nd building, on the 2nd floor - this gives you a balcony, but the view is that of the resort next door.
It has 2 beds, 1 double and 1 single. A tv with DVD player. Walk in closet and bathroom of course.
When we checked in, the staff has kindly put our bags in the walk in closet. Upon entering the room, we were greeted by the sweet scent of lemon grass and eucalyptus from their aromatherapy set on their side table.

White House Boracay: White House Boracay (3)
The very beautiful manager of the resort Amanda Tirol has kindly upgraded us (aside from the Deluxe to the Super Deluxe room) to their premier Beach House Suite. It is located fronting the pool with a veranda where their swings are. Great view of the beach (if not boarded up).
The room has 3 beds: 2 single beds, facing the door; 1 double bed facing the windows.
The lower beach house has it's own dining tables, ref (not a mini one), cooking stove, sink, bar and living area.
Outside the house, is the twin swings facing the pool and a couch (no pics - i forgot to take some)

Blue Coral Resort: Peaceful place in Angol
Last visit Sept 2006
Blue Coral only has six rooms but this is a beachfront resort. The rooms are better than average and the manager, Maya, is very nice and sweet. There's no additional service offered here but they will go out of their way to help you out. The room is about P2,800/$50 per night for peak and PhP1,500/$30 per night during off-peak.
I've grown to love this place and returned several times in a year. The resort manager's daughter Julia provides so much fun and entertainment. Heartbreaking to leave her!
Beach front resort situated in Angol, Station 3. Not much people hang around here so if you want quiet and peace, this is the place to go.

VILLA CAMILLA AT BOAT STATION 3
We got a good rate at Villa Camilla located at Boat Station 3. Since we visited Boracay during rainy season (non-peak), we got a good walk-up rate of P500 for 3 nights. The place is marvelously roomy and the environment (walk-in lobby area, entrance to rooms, etc) was very pleasant to look at. We were extremely happy with our stay and would not hesitate to go back.
The rooms are nicely decorated with two floors (see pic) and can accomodate 4 people easily. The stairs leading to the upstairs sleeping area are quite steep however - not good for kids. We had a nice queen sized bed and a mini-fridge... but no TV, which was fine with us because we spent most of the day chillin in other ways on days we weren't outside checkin out the scenery.
An outdoor pool and bar (have a beer while swimming) was also a nice touch.

Balinghai: Unique, Artistic and Charming
Charming! Very relaxing, laid back. Service is very friendly, slow but when you are on vacation, why rush or worry about time...Each of the beach/sea view cottages are unique and command fantastic views. Food is served at either the upstairs dining area, next to where you check in, or down on the beach where a pulley and rope contraption shuttles your meals an drinks from the kitchen above.
Have a sunset seafood barbeque on the private beach! You need to make arrangements in advance.

Acanthus Hus Boracay: Honeymooner`s Heaven - Acanthus Hus Boracay

" Pink House" Tulubhan - Boracay: Boracay Vacation House
A good alternative to hotel & resort accommodation on Boracay is the rental of an vacation house. Specially if you travel with kids or a group of friends. Some vacation houses are located right on White Beach. But they are quiet expensive - others are located inland. One of them is " The Pink House " near Tulubhan Bay. This vacation house has three bedrooms, each with aircon and own bath - two with garden terrace and one with an romantic little balcony. In the ground floor is the kitchen with dining area and terrace.
" The Pink House " is within walking distance to " Boracay Hills" and about 10 minutes walk to Tulubhan Bay. A tricycle will bring you in less than 7 minutes to White Beach in Angol.

Blue Coral: Small and Friendly....
If you are looking for reasonably priced accommodation in Boracay without breaking the bank, this could be the place for you. The hotel is located just a few meters from the beach, in a nice peaceful area (away from the crowds and noise). Room amenities include cable TV, minibar, safety deposit box and terrace with sea views. There is a little coffee shop downstairs, and nearby Cocoloco Restaurant also serves tasty breakfasts, lunches and evening meals.
This hotel proves that you don't have to spend a fortune to stay in Boracay - rooms start at P1000 during low season, and a standard aircon room during high season costs P2000. Deluxe rooms and a family room (with cooking facilities) are also available. Contact Maya or Vicky.

Mabini's: Back to Basics
Mabini's have little beach-hut style cottages at the southern end of the island. The facilities are pretty basic, but the view makes up for it - they are really close to the sea, and on a nice quiet part of the beach. There is also pretty good snorkeling in this area.
You can haggle with them about the price. I was quoted P1000 per night, but I'm sure you could reduce that a bit. They also offer discounts for long term stay.
The cottages are native style made of bamboo and nipa (used to thatch the roof) and elevated on stilts. As far as I know there is no hot water, although in the summer this is not a problem. There is an assortment of funky little beach bars in this area, and some nice restaurants. This is a good place to stay if you want to get away from the crowds.

Saigon Resort: Nice and affordable
Saigon cottages are clean, comfortable and affordable. The personnel ensured that it is cleaned before we check in. They are duplex cottages, with own bathrooms and aircon units. With a very reasonable price and strategic location which is actually near the beach, it is a good accomodation for us. It may not be listed in the travel agencies but I will recommend it to my friends with a budget but requires a good accomodation.
The location of this resort is near the beach at station 3.

Cottages: Tirol & Tirol Boracay
Whatever you do, DO NOT go to TIROL AND TIROL.
I hate Tirol and Tirol Boracay. The receptionist, Elinor, does not
know how to properly book. My mom booked a beachfront room from the
26th to the 28th. This intelligent receptionist booked us from the
27th to the 29th. We were tired and hungry, and we really didn't want
to ruin our vacation. So we settled for a smaller room, because there
weren't beachfront rooms left.
In most hotels, that kind of faux pas could land you an upgrade
and/or complimentary services. In crappy TNT, it will land you
nothing. Our intelligent receptionist had the gall to even ask us to
book 2 rooms because our smaller room can only accomodate 4 adults--
we were 5 adults. I was about to erupt in rage, when my mom stepped
in and asked for a mattress instead.
And you'd think they'd give us the mattress for free?
No way! They charged us Php300 for a very crappy mattress. It isn't
even a mattress--it's a thin foam pretending to be a mattress. And I
know how much they cost, they cost less than Php500 in Manila! I know
because we own one, we sometimes bring it along on roadtrips.
The crappier thing was, it took them HOURs to bring the stupid
mattress--and the linen room was just across our room! Kung kelan ako
patulog, doon lang dumating!
The following day, we changed rooms. Unfortunately, the pull out beds
did not have linens. We complained about it, and same thing--it took
them HOURS to get the linens! My mom had to go to the linen room, pa!
My mom doesn't want to complain, because she's staying there again
this New Year. While I'm all for complaining, the intelligent
receptionist may do something about our booking.
It's really crappy!
