After having stayed in meagre accommodation for 10 days in boracay, we decided to upgrade for a week. We searched the various sites and settled for this one. Price was quite reasonable and the hotel looked great in the pictures. Oh how we wish we hadn't bothered. The hotel is in the middle of nowhere, and up a steep hill. The hotel description said it was located in Station 1,which was another reason we selected it. Station 1 of where? Timbuktu? There is no courtesy bus into the town, the hotel worker just goes and flags a motorbike taxi or blags a lift from a passing courtesy bus from another hotel. This bus service was only every 2 hours and the last return bus was at 10pm.The buffet breakfast isn't of a great standard and the hotel looks very tired although there was major building works going on. The pool was quite nice, but every afternoon there seems to be a 'members of the public welcome' policy. Lots of locals visited, were very noisy, played loud music and stayed until well after dark.
The only pluses to this stay was the friendliness of the staff and the quality of the room, mainly due to the fact that the air conditioning worked, which we were grateful for after the first hotel.
My advice.... pay the extra and stay in the town
