Warm accommodation, friendly and courteous staff, clean rooms, surroundings and the service is superb! Oh the food may be simple but they're well prep. The only thing missing but not a minus to my review is the nearby medicine store. You have to go station 2 to buy but that's all. We'll definitely come back here on our next visit to Boracay.

Hello Sir Michael, Thank you for the wonderful review! We're so happy that you and your family enjoyed your stay. We always make sure that our guests deserve the best service we can offer, and we are glad we meet your expectations. Nearest pharmacy is located mainly along the highway of the island so its a bit tricky finding one in beach front. Thank you so much for staying Sir Michael, we are looking forward to seeing you again soon. Best regards, Brian Albert Vigil

I have to say, we booked this wanting a cheap deal and not being especially fussy but... the photos are definitely not representative. We were given a room with a tiny window and very outdated decor. On the plus side, the room is clean and round the corner from the beach but I wish we'd spent a little more or chosen one that was more reflective. Also we asked about trips - normally you trust your hotel - but they sent us off with a v shonky snorkelling tour which charged us extra for each island we visited, extra for snorkelling kit and came back 2 hours earlier than advertised. As a result it lowered my respect for the hotel.

Dear Aheytravel, Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us. We sincerely apologize for not meeting your expectations during your stay, however, we are confident that the photos published on the website are exactly the same as what you can find when you check in. It would be easy to justify this when you were able to took some photos for us to compare. Regarding the activities, our hotel doesn't own or in-partnership with a tours activity and we don't offer tour packages, so what we can do is just assist our guests in booking their desired activities and/or giving options and recommendations and it's up to the guests if they will book or not, what happens beyond that is of guests responsibilities. Your underrated experience with island hopping that ended 2 hours earlier was out of the hotel's control. The sea and weather conditions during that time might not given your boat permission to visit other islands that was supposed to be included in the package and we assumed that the situation has been explained to you by the boat captain and the least we can expect from you is to understand. Thank you for considering to stay with us and we hope that despite of these shortcomings, you still had great memories of Boracay with you. Best regards, Brian Albert V.

The place was perfect. It was secluded but close to White beach (about a minute walk away), with a small garden and great facilities. I paid for a standard room but was bumped to a superior one. The room was spacious and the view of the garden in the balcony made the place feel cozy and relaxing. The staff were super kind and helpful too. They arranged for an airport transfer and the island hopping tour. Considering I booked the place last minute, I did not expect this level of service from the staff. Kudos to them!

We stayed just recently at the Island Jewel Inn for four days. The location does not offer availabilities of nearby restaurants. I am rating this as "poor" because of their poor wifi connection that logs you out every 20 minutes or so. No variations in breakfast, we cannot order anything else.

Dear Ms. Evelyn Mae, Thank you for staying with us. Our location is just barely 50 meters away from the beach and that will cost you a little over a minute to walk. Loads of restaurants can be found on the beach so that means it is quite impossible that our location doesn't have access to nearby restaurants, bars and shops. We believe we have given you an utmost service that we can provide during your stay but unfortunately there are things that we cannot perfectly control just like the wifi connection which is being given for free. There might be lots of guests using the wifi during that time that's why the connection was relatively slow. We apologise on this inconvenience during your stay and we hope we can make it up to you next time. Regards, Brian Albert Vigil

It was my first time to go to Boracay and it was for business. Glad I chose Island Jewel Inn as my home for 26 days; stayed from May 8 until June 2 of this year. I didn’t have a hard time searching the hotel the moment I stepped on the island for it is known. I was welcomed by Bryan. He assisted me with all my belongings. As I entered my room which they categorized as superior and private, I was extremely surprised! It was exactly how it looks like in pictures. What I like most about the room is its space and cleanliness. The bed is huge. There are lots of cabinets to place all stuff. Tables and chairs are set up. There are bedside lamps. Lighting is all good. The television has cable signal. The kitchen is fully equipped with gas, stove, utensils, kettle, etc. Fridge and

Stayed from May 13-15 for 15 adults and 3 kids. Also booked last September 2016 and still they never disappoint - friendly and helpful staff as always! They helped us feel comfortable. The place is just a few steps to the beach. Accessible to almost all you would need. The staff make sure that the rooms and place is super clean. Thinking of staying again this coming July on my birthday! This was the best treat for my staff and a great place to celebrate Mother's Day with my mom and wife! THE BEST PLACE TO BE IN BORACAY. You don't need a fancy place because most of the time you will be out for water activities and Island Jewell Inn in Station 3 is the right place for everyone.

Me and my girlfriend has stay'd here for 8 days. The staff is so accommodating and helpful. They're always smiling and makes sure that you feel home. They helped us with laundry, told us the prices on the island so we didn't get ripped off, planned our trip to the airport with taxi + boat and we even got to borrow their phone several times. This hotel is like a 30 seconds/1 minute walk to the beach and has a very nice restaurant right besides it called "The Tree house" The rooms are cheap and has everything you need (refrigerator, A/C, shower and bed tables) We even got offered to join their family dinner at night for a small fee, and they told us that they we're shopping groceries in the morning - so if we wanted anything specific we just had to tell them and they would buy

Stayed here with my boyfriend in January 2017. The staff were so friendly and accommodating. On one occasion a lady helped us call a company to inquire about a boat trip. The room was basic standard but had everything we needed. It was clean and staff offered towels and serviced rooms everyday. The location is brilliant because you can enjoy a quieter side to the island yet you are so close to station 2, the central party area. If you go up the hill and onto the road you can hop on a shared local taxi which will bring you to station 1 or 2 in a few minutes, for only 30pesos. Alternatively you can just walk on the beach and it would probably be a 20min walk roughly. I think the island jewel provide a basic breakfast in the morning but we didn't avail of it because there were

A few meters away from the beach in Station 3, this place is clean with simple amenities, very friendly and professional staff. They're very good in helping us book some activities and get information about places to visit around the island. Breakfast is simple but okay, it would be nice if lunch and dinner is served as well. They're very accommodating in responding to our request. For those who are looking for a simple and cozy place to stay in Boracay, I highly recommend Island Jewel Inn.
