"Peaceful Hotel, Friendly Service Minded Staff"

This hotel is off the beaten track of White Beach. It offers amazing views of both sides of the island. Transportation to and from the hotel are offered by the hotel, or getting a trike is a small cost.
Our room was on the north side. Ask for a room on floor 3 for a better view. Floor 3 also has a very lovely observation deck where one can admire the sunsets.
The room was small and adequate, cleaned each day, and well used. Unfortunately, my husband was very sick for 3 days from eating at Munchies at Bulabog Beach. He got his money’s worth given he didn't leave the room for a few days!
The hotel staff was very accommodating, one of the drivers even picked up yogurt for my husband on one of his town trips. Thank you for your efforts! The restaurant has good food and serves a generous portion (unlike many restaurants at White Beach). Breakfast could be improved by adding fresh fruit to the buffet.
The deluxe room has more amenities. There is plenty of hot water and there is NO musty smell in the room.
This hotel has a very respectful management team. One can see the managers conversing with the hotel workers. On one of my chats with the driver, he told me he admires and is very happy because he is treated fairly and with respect from his supervisors. A great working environment speads to happy workers and happy clients!

I'm so happy that I chose the Boracay Garden Hotel. We stayed here for 3 nights. The extra charge for a premium room was well worth it. Our room was overlooking the swimmimg pools. Our room was very clean and very big. The shower head though didn't work very well. Breakfast was excellent. Totally enjoyed our stay here although some of the Korean guests were rude and inconsiderate but overall the hotel is beautiful. The staff were helpful and very accommodating. Will recommend this hotel to family and friends.

The Hotel staff are very helpful, accomodating and always willing to help in any way possible, the location of the Hotel is centralized not to mention the beach access is just outside your door.
Only two comments that can be improved upon.
The water pressure in the room is very low, and the internet accces aswell is vely slow.
Otherwise, I recomend this hotel and willing to stay again.
Thank you again to all the staff that made mine and my nrother stay memorable.
"Frendz Hostel at Boracay - good for solos/families"

I travelled solo female to Boracay and had a great experience at this hostel.
The shortcomings listed in the reviews are also common at much more expensive hotels in the Philippines. Clean, fairly secure, only a minute from the beach, where the hostel has reserved access to (complete with beach chairs, cafe to provide drinks/snacks) and from the road (enough if you like to sleep).
