Residencia Boracay

Before Boracay shuts down for a 6-month healing and clean-up program, we were able to visit the island, just before proper summertime. This time, we opted to book a room at Station 1. This would be my first time in this part of the coastal strip, and it's definitely way better than Station 2 and 3. Less people, less boats or whatever water activity equipments nearby. The ocean seems bigger and not crowded. Good thing Residencia Boracay still had rooms available. Most beachfront resorts were full.
View from Residencia Boracay's beach beds.
Residencia Boracay is one of those fortunate resorts which has both beach access at one end, and roadside entry at the other. We took the services of Island Star Express, which was cheaper than Southwest Tours (like 1 grand less). They dropped us off the resort's gates. 
Front desk / concierge. You can also borrow beach towels here, and just return it after use.

Most Superior Rooms were located at the back of the resort. More expensive rooms were closer to the beach. But no matter, it's more quiet here, with a village-like feel.

  • Dishes were quite affordable, with huge serving size. 
  • Staff were nice and approachable. We requested for a few extra hangers, and they gave us about 6 more.
  • There were hotel staffs keeping an eye on house guests by the beach. Really helpful, especially because most guests just leave their bags and items on the beach beds while they frolic in the water.
  • Mineral Water Dispensers (hot and cold) were provided for hotel guests, stationed near the rooms, and by the restaurant.
