A great quiet place to stay in boracay

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 27, 2008

Our company stayed here for our summer outing so i have a first-hand info for you.

From the White Beach, its located in the northern most tip of the Station 1, around 2 more minute walk to the north of Fridays Resort. Its a short walk at the back of Boracay Terraces and Punta Rosa Resort. NOT beach-front. The road just outside the resort is not yet paved so its a little awkward to walk there when it rains.

The hotel/resort itself is great because its very quiet, staff are extremely nice, place is immaculately clean, very homey, its like your home away from home, the resort mascot (dog) is very friendly too. The resort-in-the-middle-of-a-garden effect is great and i loved it. There is a small viewing deck at the top of the resort (ask the staff for the way there) and the view of white beach is terrific. I only eat there during breakfast because it comes with the package and I thought the food is not bad. Our company stayed there for our summer outing and the resort staff are really helpful and attentive. The pool is also great, they said its salt water pool but it didn't taste salty at all. BUT its very refreshing, to the point that you'll want to just stay in the pool and avoid the beach :D

Though the resort itself is great i have some cons like the shower is not that strong, but they said that the whole island is having trouble with water supply so they will just bring in water to our room (in very big buckets/containers). I thought not bad as long as i have water when i needed one. Then the other not so problem i encountered is, its far from the main D'Mall area (for shopping & restaurants & night-party). The resort's shuttle is not free (i guess around P250/one-way) but the tricycles outside the resort (go to beach area) is P75/one-way to D'Mall area (center of Boracay). But if its raining hard, he price goes upto P100/one-way. Alternatively it's a leisurely walk if its not too hot (mid-day) to center of boracay. OR hire the shuttle of nearby resort Punta Rosa for only P150/one-way *wink*

For some Boracay Strand pictures you may want to visit my picture site: http://superkatol.multiply.com/photos/album/37/The_Strand_Boracay
you'll quickly see that the pictures in their website is exactly what you'll be getting!!!

By the way the resort is beside a small cemetery, maybe thats why its very quiet (but not at all creepy)! Over-all we all loved our stay there and I'll definitely comeback with my family. It's also perfect for honeymooners by the way :D

Unique Quality: Quiet, Relaxing, Cozy, Homey, great garden, great pools, immaculately clean rooms and bathroom, electronic safety box, very beautiful place, very far from the busy part of the boracay island

Directions: located at the far end of station 1, walk few more steps behind boracay terraces hotel
