I had been to Boracay 5 years ago and passed on Patio Pacific as it wasn't a beachfront resort. But when we came back, this was part of our travel package and I must say their service, room and facilities more than make up for it. We had a driver waiting for us at the port and took us to our hotel where we received a warm welcome.
Our room was spacious and equipped with an LCD tv, a mini ref, a safety deposit box, wifi access, an electric kettle and thoughtful touches like toothbrushes, shaving kit, shampoo, conditioner, body scrub and even umbrellas. I especially like their energy-saving measures. Our room key had a device that was inserted into a slot in the wall that would turn on the electricity and turn off when we left.
The staff were always very helpful and it was a treat to have a lot of choices for breakfast where you could even choose the ingredients for your omelette. The front desk can even let you check out late if you inform them right away.
The only downside about their location is that you have to pass through a narrow alleyway to get to and from the beach and I understand the anxiety it may cause tourists at night though there are lamp posts...but I felt quite safe and felt that our Patio Pacific stay greatly contibuted to how much we enjoyed our vacation.
Unique Quality: They have a lovely garden path with lots of orchids and other flowers and a guava tree.
They have a big pool with a small jacuzzi.
They also have a faucet in the garden to clean the sand off your feet.
Directions: FRom Station 2 and see Bambooze and the Mint resto/bar, turn right into the alley and keep walking till you see the garden with the logo of Patio Pacific
The rooms are beautiful. I love how everything was pink. The staff were very friendly and polite. The room keys were very quaint and perfect for the beach. The food was adequate and for the rates, was a very good deal. Though not a beach front hotel, its a very short walk to the beach.
Unique Quality: They have wall for those who would like to try their hans at wall climbing, discounted rates for hotel guests. And its own pool for hotel guests as well as a jacuzzi and fitness room. They have daily buffet meals and 1 dinner if you get a room package.
Patio Pacific in Boracay has always arranged our corporate, group and individual trips in Boracay, and their service has never been less than exemplary. They can probably arrange something for all your trip requirements, yes, including air travel and meals, and island hopping. Of course you can still haggle for a good price. But before you do check out what other entrepreneural individuals can offer on the island. On an off-peak season, you have the luxury of not planning ahead. Peak season starts mid-December til Feb 2008.
Unique Quality: They got a fitness center, a spa, chill-out lounge, and a wall-climbing facility :) :)
Directions: nearest to Boat Station 1
The accommodation is as how I expected it to be. They gave us the room at the ground floor as how I requested it and it's also beside the resto so just a few steps from the buffet breakfast hehe :) The breakfast was good. Not very special but good enough for my taste. The staff are always smiling and accommodating. Not beachfront but the pathway to the beach is well-lit at night and is also just a minute walk from the beach. The only thing that didn't go well was that they didn't clean our room. Also, make sure that they give you the rooms at the ground floor since the walk to the beach plus the stairs could be a bit tiring.
Unique Quality: Rated triple A by the dept of tourism so i guess that's something and considering that the price was not too far from the single A rated hotels. They have wall-climbing facilities. Wasn't able to try it though since I'm afraid of heights :(
If you want to be in Boracay but away from the noisy drunken crowd at night, you can try Pink Patio Pacific (formerly Pink Patio). It's not beach front but near souvenir shops along the road that runs parallel the beach.
What I distinctly remember about our room is that the bathroom opens up to a pocketgarden!
Unique Quality: Swimming Pool, Restaurants, Conference Rooms, Fitness Center, Land/Boat Transfers from Kalibo or from Caticlan
It's completely understandable, though, if you hardly feel like leaving the resort at all. With its newly upgraded facilities and air-conditioned deluxe rooms and suites, complete with hot & cold shower, cable TV, and telephone, the inside of the resort rivals the delights found outside. Small wonder, then, that Pink Patio
Unique Quality: Wouldn't you want to spend your vacation at the island paradise of Boracay in the most comfortable and laid-back way possible? Pink Patio Resort will make your Boracay vacation as perfect as your surroundings. A mere 2-minute walk to the center of the action, so you can explore the islands powdery white sand beaches and take part in the lively action.
