100% recommendation!
They clean your room TWICE a day and the level of service that you get is amazing. The breakfast is tasty and there are lots of restaurants within walking distance and the beach in perfect. They also have lounge chairs with umbrellas for free for guests.

Great location on the beach and super staff
Watercolors was perfect for us, great location close to everything but not in the busiest section. What really set it apart was the great staff who constantly went out of their way to make our visit perfect and the manager who checked on our stay several times. Enjoyed happy hour watching the sun go down and was pleasantly surprised how tasty the food from the kitchen was since its a small hotel. I went on 3 dives and it was spectacular. Amazing visibility and sealife, small groups, and great price. Jenny was the dive master and a true professional, highly recommend her. Will definitely return

Very well located, friendly, helpful dive resort
Really helpful management and ALL the staff were incredibly helpful, polite and professional. Everything had been pro-actively thought of, so no niggling "if only this place had abc". Range of food and drink was good. You step off the breakfast terrace ONTO the white beach with water lapping the terrace at high water. The room was well appointed and good bathroom. Note though that the rooms on the road side have a window over looking the back of the rooms on the sea side, so I never drew the curtain (that said, I wasn't there to live in the room!). Well organised dives - 3-4 every day. Note the arrival trip (NOT a service of any of the hotels except the very highest end ones, but contracted out) from either local airport is "complex", but because Boracay is an Island, they have to "dig out" to get any/all guests there, so the process is slick and efficient as you get handed down the chain from aircraft to resort front door, and v/v, but it's way too complex to explain here. Anywhere else it'd be a bonanza for locals to rip you off, but tourism is the local golden egg, so my guess is that it's self policed VERY thoroughly to prevent bad reviews from tourists killing the golden egg

Excellent dive resort right on White Beach
From the moment of our arrival to our final farewell we were blown away by the warmth and friendliness of all the staff at Watercolors. Watercolors is a small resort incorporating a PADI dive centre. The location of Watercolors on White Beach was excellent and the view from our beachfront room was absolutely stunning. There was a gorgeous patio with some tables and chairs as well as a couple of lounges where we would enjoy our breakfast each and every morning and admire the beautiful blue waters and white sand of Boracay and also where, come evening, we would chill out with a few icy cold beers as we watched the sun set over Willy's Rock. It was just an incredible spot at any time of day. There was also a roof deck from we could enjoy the view if we preferred and we had our private balcony too. Mini iPads were used for check in, ordering food and to contact the front desk if required. Breakfast was included in our room rate and there was a nice range to choose from. We had no plans of going diving on this trip but after seeing how beautiful and clear the water was and seeing the excitement in the faces of the divers coming and going we did do an introductory dive and I enjoyed it so much I now want to do a full dive course. A big thank you to Chester and his amazing team for a wonderful, wonderful stay.

Great boutique hotel right on the beach!
Great hotel right on the beach in Station 1. You can easily walk down the beach to the busier area. I liked it because it was a little more quiet. Staff at the hotel were extremely friendly and courteous. They all knew my name after the first day. Small hotel. Rooms are small but it's made up for because of the view of the beach. I had the beachfront room. Food was good. in the restaurant. Bed very comfortable. Complimentary fruit and water in the room. Concierge was always available if you needed anything. Tip on getting to Boracay. Book an airport transfer to the hotel. It's very confusing when you get off the airplane if you've never been there before.

Great location great staff
The hotel welcomed us like we were VIPs. I booked 3 rooms and me and my friends all loved it. Great bar on the beach lounge chair and fantastic location. I loved room 201 facing the beach, the bed was super comfortable, room was cleaned twice a day, I loved the staff the bar staff and food was all FANTASTIC! The place felt like a home breakfast was awesome unlimited juice. This was one of my favorite hotel staff experiences I have ever had, they made you feel like VIP family.
