We stayed for six nights with another family and had a wonderful stay. Each family had two grandparents, two parents, one 5-year-old and one 1-year-old. The suites are very spacious and all of us fit without difficulty in two suites. The renovations that previous reviewers mentioned must be done because we did not see or hear any. We found the...

Boracay is amazing. The beach is incredible and water is even better. The stale and however is very meh. It is situated down some rundown street that some might consider the slums. There is a cut through on the property to shantytown shacks that border the "resort". Roosters are everywhere making noise all day and the locals use the property...

The rooms in this hotel are good and spacious. There is something that kinda looks like a kitchen, but that can only be used to e.g. boil water for coffee. The room has satellite tv and WiFi, though the latter did not work when we were there. The staff is polite and friendly. The garden was nice but kind of...

I did tons of research here on TA before deciding on a hotel in Boracay. By and large everybody seemed to say that every hotel was great. I suppose it depends what you are looking for. For me, The Strand was perfect, a classy oasis away from the tackiness of the strip. Personally I have a low tolerance for being...

If you are looking for a quiet holiday in Boracay, The Strand Boracay is good option. It does not have a beachfront which is a negative, but makes with very quiet atmosphere. It has a good pool for the kids, the beach is about 50 mts walk, through a village street. It has only about 20 odd cottages, well furnished...

My boyfriend and I stayed here when visiting the Phillipines for a friends wedding. When we first arrived we were shown to a room near the entrance of the resort, the room was rather basic and extremely noisey during the evening (from the security guard blasting out Mariah Carey). We asked if we could move the next morning and were...

The Strand Boracay put all my worries away. It was my first time to travel to Boracay with my family with me including the kids. On most occasions, I only travel with friends and partner. However, this year's Boracay vacation was for my daughter's 8th birthday celebration. The staff have helped out a lot to make it a real success....

This is the perfect place for our family! This place is very relaxing, but a few minutes walk to all the hustle and bustle in Boracay. We just wanted a room to shower in and sleep in and we got more than what we expected. The staff treated us like family. Rooms are simple, clean, and they have fast internet....

My girlfriend and I stayed for three nights in a one bedroom suite, Room 5. The staff were wonderful and service was excellent. The room was spacious, the bed was amazingly comfortable and unlike other hotels in the Philippines the hot water system worked and the hot showers were a welcome amenity at the end of the day. The rooms...
