Reviewed 23 August 2016

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.

Staff at Tonglen were very friendly and helpful. The location is good even though it is not beach front. The rooms are a little dated but very clean and well-maintained - for the price you would be content with your choice. The breakfast is handy when included and tastey. The pool very handy when walking break from sand at the...

Can find much nicer places in Boracay for the same price. I would pay max 2/3 of the low season price and still not be fully satisfied. WiFi only in common areas, poor aircon, uncomfortable bed (very soft and worn out), the shower water drained very slowly so the whole bathroom floor was almost constantly wet. I'm not too picky...

Came to Boracay on a solo trip in January. Was looking for a nice place to stay near the White Beach and near Station 2 and 3. Tonglen Beach Resort came up as a decent place on Booking.com, so made my bookings and headed to Boracay! It's a really cool property in Station 3. It has a nice swimming pool...

My boyfriend and I stayed here in December 2015 over Christmas (I know, a little late on the review!). We really wanted something more secluded from the busy, tourist filled beach area, somewhere we can go to unwind after a fun filled day in the sun. Tonglen was just that! Our flight from Manila to Caticlan was cancelled and we...

Tonglen is my favourite place to stay on Boracay because of it's value for money, peaceful atmosphere, friendly staff, and short distance to white beach. I have stayed at Tonglen on three separate occasions and I can imagine staying in Boracay without a stay at Tonglen. It fronts onto the main road of Boracay giving easy access to the tricycles...

It reminds me of my place way back home. Very nice staff. Really a 3 star hotel. Well, if you will compare Tonglen to a 5 star hotel, i will still stay here again. My family is in here. Will recommend this place. Thank you for having me.
