I am a frequent traveler and I've traveled this part of the world many times already and stayed in many places. I was unpleasantly surpprised to find a room that was basically at all prepared to receive its guests. I had difficulties in closing and opening properly the door, the fridge was at all functioning the way should function, there were no hangers to properly arrange my clothes and it was quite an adventure to find some food at breakfats, around 9.00am, even though the manager was having his own brekfast while the buffet was quite empty for the guests. However in all this set up, the personel from the reception desk and the ones serving were incredibly nice and helpful during my entire stay. Miss Amina took care to have everything I need in my room, and also to have a proper breakfats in the morning there was nothing to choose from. She was responsive and tried to meet my needs. Also I would like to give a big thank you to Miss Jham as well for making my stay more pleasant. Now, I am wondering: how can a hotel manager be so careless while his team is struggling to offer the best stay to its guests? For the owners of this hotel I believe would make a huge difference to consider hiring a manager for whom the guest are on the first place.

Cozy and spacious accommodation. Their housekeeping has been diligently following the rooms and their staff is helpful and accommodating. After a swim on the beach, a dip in their indoor pool is perfect! Prime location - near the beach, stores and other food stalls. But quiet at night as well if you want to rest and relax.

The stay is almost pleasing until we decided to have dinner at their restaurant . We are seated at 7PM but food did not get served until 8:30 it is a sit in eat all you can. Crew gave as the wrong food an hour and a half wait. The manager cannot handle the situation, so sad that it will take down the whole experience with it.

location is good, near restaurants and beach front. However since its also near the station 1 paraw sailing and take off area for most activities, beach swimming area becomes limited. staffs are good! They were very helpful and specially caring to my senior mom. They provide wheelchair assistance which is a super plus to those traveling with seniors. Breakfast was so-so, though the balcony view is superb. Overall, place great value for money. 👌

My first visit to Boracay and stayed at The Muse Hotel for 5 days. Location is excellent, right on the White Beach at Station 1. The room is huge, with 2 comfortable queen size beds and a sofa. Staff is polite and helpful. The buffet breakfast is also good. Highly recommended.

I was looking for a hotel that will give good experience, Muse did not disappoint. I like that the staff were helpful and courteous. I also love the fact that they have the best food in the island. Will definitely come back. The room was also good and the jacuzzi outside added the luxurious experience.

I really did try to enjoy this place but it wouldn’t let me. I left a day early before the end of my stay due to someone knocking then trying to force themselves in my room. The GOOD: location, beachfront view, nice staff. The BAD: Basic amenities are very limited, Hotel is in total disarray, looks like its been abandoned by owners. Security issues. Skimpy breakfast(for the birds!). First floor has privacy issues due to foot traffic next to the balcony. Water is hard. Overall my stay was unpleasant and uncomfortable. The staff were nice and tried their best to accommodate but the policies in place makes it difficult for the guests. There are other nicer hotels at lower price points.

Totally overpriced, the reception was rude, poor breakfast and the rooms are just ok and not worth the price. You can find 10x times better hotels around and even near for half the price. Stay away please.

When we were first looking for a hotel in Boracay, the muse was one of our top 10 choices because of its quiet calm location at Station 1 and its beachfront views. Their reviews, however, were not that great with people complaining about the quality of the hotel, run down rooms, small breakfast buffet, and exceptional service from the staff. When we checked in at Muse, we found out that all the above were true. The hotel from the exterior looks fine. Lobby was clean and neat. Check in was quick and swift. So we got a room on the 3rd floor (beach view premier room - 324). Upon trying to get to the room, the elevators were not working. Bad first impression. Anyway, with our 2 large bags and kids tired from the travel, the hotel staff were nice enough to help carry our bags up to the room. Once they got us to the room, one of the lights in the room was not working. It made the room look very dim and dull. Staff again helped to bring in a tall lamp shade to help brighten the room up. Next, we asked the reception for a baby cot. The replied that the hotel has no baby cots and suggested we get an additional bed for 1700PHP a night. We told them it was unfair for them to charge use that kind of money, since the lift wasn't working, the light wasn't working and they had no baby cot. After which they replied they would waive off the extra bed charges. Kudos for that. The room had our own Jacuzzi which was overlooking the beach which was fantastic. We also didn't have any neighbors so we had the pool all to ourselves. Another thing to note was that when we entered the room, we tried using the in-room Safe but to no avail, which has no instructions on how to use it. Anyway, we didn't think much of it and went about our day. Another annoying thing was a side door close to our room door which had a faulty latch, it kept slamming every time during strong winds. We had to keep calling reception multiple times to get it closed/fixed daily. Also noticed from the review section that another visitor previously in the same room as mine complained about the faulty door early this year. Guess they missed out reading about it. Anyway, the first 2 nights were fantastic. Plus we had a nice breakfast which was on the 2nd floor, so we had to carry our stroller up and down for breakfast. They had about 6-7 varieties of local dishes which was sufficient. The view from the breakfast restaurant was superb. On our 3rd and final night, after breakfast, as usual, we spent 2-3 hours at the beach before returning to our room. Upon returning to the room which was already cleaned by the make up room staff, my wife discovered that she had 1000 PHP missing from her wallet. Upon checking my wallet which was placed in a different bag, I found 50 dollars missing as well. Note that we had placed our wallets in separate bags which were zipped up since the Safe had no instructions on how to use it. They were placed in the same bags on the first 2 nights. We reported the stolen money to the reception. Hotel management and security visited our room and took our statement. Took pictures of where our wallets were placed and said they'll review the CCTV to check who has been in and out of the rooms. So we left for lunch and returned in the evening to spent another few hours at the beach. Upon returning to the room, Hotel manage spoke to us that they found the 2 staff who cleaned our rooms but no money was found when they were stripped searched and no one admitted to it as well. Hotel manager was nice enough to return our missing money from her own pocket. Although it was a good gesture on her part, I still find it weird that according to her, they have not had such reported cases before. Maybe because these thieves steal in small amounts and couldn't be unnoticeable to most people. Still, the manager gave them the benefit of doubt and mentioned they had been working for her for 2 years with no such reports. So overall, our stay was ok. We had a good night sleep and a good breakfast in the mornings. The theft was the only downside to me. The only reason for me giving 3 stars is because the staff are dedicated (except for the thieves). It was a good learning experience for us. Good to be back in Boracay but will skip Muse on our next visit :)
