The staffs are very accommodating. The room is always clean. Just a 5 minute walk from white beach. We haven't tried eating in their restaurant so i cant say something about their food. But they are just near the market and surrounded by other bigger restaurants. You will never get hungry in Boracay. I would definitely stay here again on...

This is our second time in Tonglen. The last was November 2015. We intentionally chose to stay again in this hotel despite higher prices (compared to when we booked last year). It still has been the best place to relax after a long day out. It truly is home away from home. I think they are in the process of...

I've been checking this hotel for about a week now due to positive reviews and finally saw a promo in their own website where it says "499/per person Garage Sale". I called the resort last night and the girl who answered the phone is busy with something else. She told me over the phone "wait lng ma'am madami kasi bisita"....

Hi Jaja, I really appreciate on how you express your emotions. Tonglen beach resort is just a small quality resort in Boracay Island. I only have few people who manage my front office and reservations. However, I can still say, we love our guests and they expressed their love to us through appreciation. I believed you have read and understood...

My family and I enjoyed our stay on this hotel. Staffs are very friendly and accomodating. You'll get a benefit of a 3 star hotel on a price of a budget hostel. Besides Boracay's pristine beaches, we also enjoyed plunging on their pool after an exhausting day on the beach. We'll sure make another booking someday at this resort.

Though not on the beach front there is a passage way about 5 minutes walk. Quiet place once inside the resort. Being on the main road is an advantage during transfers. Breakfast fare is okay but not something to crave for. Staff are courteous and helpful.
