Boracay Hotels, Guesthouses and Resorts
Accommodation has to be the topmost consideration when going to world famous Boracay. You'll have to consider the location, amenities, value for money, security, and a lot more. Fortunately, the island boasts a string of hotels and guesthouses that are sure to meet your requirement. From cheap to high end, it should not be a problem finding one that matches your style and budget.
If you're looking for a beach front property without breaking the bank, Hostel Avenue is the place to go (3rd and 4th floor Pat's Creek Bar, Barangay Balabag).
Location right on the beach in Station 2 is pretty central with lots of shopping and restaurants nearby. Guests also swear by its cleanliness and welcoming staff. If you're lucky, you can even hit their free booze night. If that's not enough, you can get a free pass to Club Epic. Overall, it's a great place to meet like-minded people from all over the world. Rates start from PHP499 for a bed in a mixed dorm.
If you like the backpacker vibe but still want some privacy and comfort of your own room, check out MNL Boracay Beach Hostel (Road 1A Bulabog). Their dorm beds start at PhHP442 while private rooms cost between PHP1,300 to PHP2,000. One thing we like about this hostel is that it's within a walking distance from both White Beach and Bulabog where the kite surfing action is. It's also quite close to station 2 if you wanna go out and party but not in the middle of the action so you still get some peace and quiet. An extra perk would be free breakfast and the roof deck where they hold events on random days.
Current by Astoria (Beachfront, Station 3, Sitio Mangayad, Barangay Manoc-Manoc) is located between Stations 1 and 2 so it's basically a stone's throw away from everything. Guests mostly love its very modern and youthful vibe, fantastic facilities, excellent breakfast, friendly staff, and the awesome swimming pool with lovely sun beds. For the price of between PHP4,200 to PHP,9,000, you're guaranteed an amazing stay at one of the top rated hotels in Boracay.
Another lovely option in this price range would be the Zuzuni Boutique Hotel (Balabag). It sits right next to the White beach so we recommend booking a room with a sea view. We definitely loved the superb location, polite staff, scrumptious breakfast, and their very own sun loungers just to name a few. Fair warning though, the beds were so comfortable that you just might be tempted to stay in all day. Rates at Zuzuni Boutique Hotel start from PHP3,080.
If budget is not an issue, we would consider staying at The Lind Boracay (Station 1, Barangay Balabag). For the price ranging from PHP12,500 to PHP17,000/night, you can count on world-class service which includes even a pickup from the airport. Located right at station 1 away from the hordes of tourists, the hotel boasts a modern interior, top notch facilities, seamless transfers, and a lot more. And oh, spend some time in their infinity pool. The view during sunset is sublime scrumptiou.
Another property worth checking out is Discovery Shores Boracay (Beachfront, Balabag), also right in Station 1, with a great ocean views, modern amenities, and excellent staff who went above and beyond expectation. Rates at this hotel start at PHP10,795 to PHP15,000 per night.
