My college friends and I stayed in this 6-room boutique hotel for four days and three nights from May 20 to 23 this year and paid P 18,600 (breakfast not included). We settled an initial deposit amounting to P 9,500 and paid the remaining balance upon arrival. There were six of us, so we paid P 3,100 each and so availed the family room. The hotel follows the usual time for check in (2:00 PM) and check out (12 NN). Because we arrived at the hotel by 8:30 AM, we left our bags in their mini lobby and stray in several places. We ATE, sat on the sand, and had our hennas.
The hotel’s location is great, because it’s located at the beachfront and it is in the border of Station 1 and Station 2 where great restaurants are situated. You know, it is all about the convenience that comes with walking less and saving more time for relaxation. If you’re facing the beach, heading over to the right would give you an easier access to the main road (near Astoria Hotel). Meanwhile, going to the left would lead you to D’Mall.
Boracay Coco Huts is very close to Army Navy where hotel guests can avail a 10% discount for a meal! (I love tie ups if that’s what you call it. Haha!) In addition, I noticed that the receptionists of the hotel and the waiter/waitresses of Army Navy play the same role.
When we got to our room, it was clean, and there were towels on the bed along with LAMINATED CARDS. The laminated cards inform guest about the penalties when their towels and bed sheets get stained as well as the other charges that should be paid when guests damage their things. I was rather shocked to see that they were four-digit penalties!
On the second floor, which is my designated area, has one single mattress on the concrete floor. I didn’t mind this, because I was near the veranda. Look at this beautiful scene which I get to enjoy every morning of during our stay.
There were a lot of outlets to charge our gadgets and the Wi-Fi works too. Their password is.. lol, kidding! They also have a trash can, and a broom. Anyway, they also have a water dispenser for all guests. Their staff is quite moody, lol (seriously though, they were unnecessarily grumpy). Also, if you want to have your room cleaned, then you have to inform them.
During our second day, water leaked on our room’s first floor, because the air conditioner malfunctioned. We called for the staff to fix it, and we were glad they did something about it.
I would recommend this boutique hotel for a group of people looking for a place to rest, shower, and have access to WiFi. It is an affordable and classy place to stay. Based on my observation, the people who stayed at the hotel were mostly in their mid 20s, like us.
PS: Apologies for the photos that some of our stuff is captured because we’re screaming for air conditioner upon checking in 🙂
