I am happy again – why – because I am back in Boracay – just
relaxing. I promised myself during this trip to seek out a few of
Boracay’s secrets. Well I certainly found one its Pinjalo Beach Resort,
which is off the beach, by just 100 mtrs on Police Station Road. It’s like
a fairy tale resort. The rooms, which are very large, with all the mod
– cons which just melts into the lush tropical landscaping, with its
large trees and neat swimming pool. You enter the resort from the
busy street, over what the locals call the “ Bridge of Tranquility “. On
crossing this small Chinese styled wooden bridge you sudden feel the
relaxing tranquility of Pinjalo. Its odd but everyone feels the magic of
immersing oneself into the harmony of nature. I enquired about the
room rates which I found very reasonable. So Pinjalo is a clear
recommendation from me – after now 6 visits to Boracay
My partner and I just returned from a 3 night stay in a suite apartment at pinjalo. I was arriving with a broken foot from an accident prior to our vacation, and the staff were incredibly helpful and accommodating - nothing was a problem. The suite room is fantastic with a huge open living room and upstairs bedroom with excellent air conditioning. The pool area is small but very nice, just in need of updating (new umbrellas, updated bar area).
*Due to new Boracay laws, there are no longer sunloungers on the beach provided. This information should be updated for new visitors*
Overall the hotel was great, but some updates are definitely needed to make the resort true value for money. The hotel is beautiful, but needs a lick of paint and modernising. Nothing much has been changed since 2011 (based on reviewers pictures)
*the living room area in our suite was stunning, but also very hot and humid. The ceiling fan was not powerful enough. Extra upright fans and/or improving the ceiling fan would make a huge difference.
*the bathroom was great with a huge rain shower, but the water pressure and temperature weren't good at all, you ran out of "hot" water very quickly.
*the Internet was very bad - although there wasn't much better on most of the island. But anything to improve would help.
*breakfast was good, but "unlimited fruit and eggs" wasn't offered and the menus were very old and scruffy. The breakfast room was quite dark and dull and not very inviting - needs more light. Easily updated!
I hope the hotel can update, and make itself even better than it already is, we'd love to return. Huge Thanks to all the staff for making our visit truly wonderful!
My family and I recently stayed at the Pinjalo resort for several nights in April.
-Great proximity to the beach and restaurants
-Breakfast is included in your stay, and the food was good.
-Great AC in the rooms
-The internet was TERRIBLE at the resort.
-Restaurant staff was not friendly or helpful.
-No one came to service our room during our stay.
-Hidden fees at check in. We booked online and indicated how many people would be staying, but was still required to pay extra for 3 additional people (2 adults, 3 kids). This fee was not stated online.
Ambiance - It's like we are in another place in Boracay! Who would've thought that there is a mini forest in the middle of Boracay?
Room - Clean and spacious rooms! Large comfort room is a plus! I also loved the veranda.
Service - Staff were amazing!
Value of Money - Paying for the services and amenities of the hotel was worth it!
The resort also has a swimming pool with sun bathing beds.
Stayed at pinjalo resort boracay for 1 night on the the first day of trip to newely reopened island. Very nice little resort located at station 3 of the island, has beautiful lush green garden surrounding accommodation units, small cafe which serves cooked to order breakfast and I believe light lunch till 5pm, nice little pool area at the rear of property open for use between 7am to 7pm with small bar also open till 6pm .Staff are very pleasant, welcoming, informative, friendly and offered great service during my stay at pinjalo. Arrived super early at property, with no hesitation, they looked after our luggage, made facilities like there pool, rest room and shower located near pool as well as breakfast at cafe for use immediately as well as provided towels to use at pool and for the beach . Station 3 beach located 200m down the road from property as well as plethora of restaurants in around and surrounding area of resort. The room itself was extremely large for two guests, two king sized bed, good sized mini bar stocked and very reasonably priced, 2 air-con S, ceiling fan, large bathroom with hot water shower and very good water pressure, flat screen TV with cable channels, in room safe, private veranda with chairs and coffee table what more could you ask for. The room I stayed in was the royal room, was given a free upgrade upon check in. Would recommend and would stay again without hesitation. From port to hotel is a 150 peso ride on a tricycle
