The location of the hotel is located quite far away from the central station 2 where most of the happenings take place. A few minutes walk to the beach and also another few minutes walk to the main road away from the beach if you want to take a tricycle to station 2/ central. But you will need to pass...

coming from a nature lover and a beach girl, This place suits me! i love how peaceful this place is.. birds chirping and flying around the resort, eat what's left in a dining table, bathe in the pool as well.. put a smile on my face. The strand is located by the hills, even if its summer, you wont feel...

We've spent a week in the strand and definitely have 50/50 views on it. Pros - rooms are faultless: spacious, clean and well equipped. We had the one bedroom suite and it was easily enough for two adults and two young kids (2 and 4 yrs old) - service is very friendly - pool is fabulous and a real treat....

This place was so wonderful, not too far from the middle part of the beach, 10mins on tricycle, but still far enough to be quiet. It comes out to the best part of the beach. Rooms are clean, and they have local but still modern design. Staff was super nice and helpful, and food in a restaurant was amazing, including...

Staying here from march 3, 2013 till march, 11, 2013. It's a great place to stay because of its convenience. No noise at all, nothing disturbs you, absolute privacy. The suites are huge and very comfortable. Station 1 is the best place to stay in Boracay if you want quiet and comfortable vacation on a wide white beach. The Strand...

Very comfortable hotel, close (perhaps 200m walk) to nicest part of white beach. We particularly liked the food and service. Only downsides are the fact that it is very close to the cemetery, which disturbed my wife on the first night, and that most of the restaurants/night life is a bit of a trek down the beach. Overall would definitely...

We had been in Strand last June 2012. My review is late but I feel the need to share the wonderful moments we had in Boracay and having Strand as part of it. We stayed there for 9 nights and the surrounding of Strand is really beautiful…you will feel so close with nature. Lush garden view with accommodating staff who...

My family and I stayed at this resort for 4 rainy nights last September and we really enjoyed it. The one-bedroom suites were spacious, clean and more importantly, everything worked. The pool area was very nice and the food was good. The resort is in a quiet area (the far end of Station 1), and it is not on the...

My girlfriend just hated the place, I was a bit less negative so overall rating is somewhat the average (a bit generous average) Location: not far from the beach and it's a quieter side of white beach; however, just next to a cemetery if you mind, and at night, specially if it rains, you are a bit out of the...
