This is a really weird place. The main beach is a long, mostly white sand beach, with warm, beautifully coloured, flat water and the govt has done a lot to clean it up so, for Asia, it is pretty clean. However, there are loads of people on the sand, sitting or walking around, but almost no one in the water. There are tonnes of shops and restaurants that lead onto the sand, so it feels a little like sitting on a street. Directly behind the beach is a typical Philipino town - dirty, smelly and surprisingly busy for such a tiny island. The beach on the other side of the island is a tip. Clearly the clean up message didn’t reach here. There is trash all over this side, but I guess it doesn’t bother the hundreds of kite surfers in the water. If you are after peace and quiet, this is not the place to go. There are thousands of other beaches in the Philippines that are much nicer and without the thousands of people milling around. By far the nicest thing to do here is go for a ride on a paraw, a traditional sailboat. They are crewed by locals who sail over from the mainland every morning. With their super narrow keels, these things fly!

Pros: - Location was excellent. Right on the beach front and near D'Mall - Friendly staff - 2 pools (quite small, but at least you have option of indoor/outdoor pool) Just Ok: - Lot of choices, but not notable. But at least, it's buffet and not plated Cons: - There is band at the downstairs restaurant nightly so quite noisy until 11-11:30 pm. To be fair, we were warned about this upon checkin, but not known on time of booking - Hotel needs updating (or proper maintenance). A lot of broken things in rooms - Lots of pillows need to be changed already. They did provide additional pillows when we requested Overall, think there are better hotels in the area. Has potential to be a good hotel but it seriously needs updating.

Manila staff are not the most responsive people in this hotel. They take days and weeks to answer be it on social media or emails. We booked a premier and premier suite room during my family's stay. Premier room was ok. Good aircon temp and high water pressure although room swing have water stains and pillows are not comfortable at all. Additional Premier suite was specifially booked because we wanted a perfect beach front room but it was such a disappointment to see that there are a lot of maintenance issues (too many to mention). Staff transferred us to other rooms only to find out the same issues. To add, amenities needs some updating as well. Staffs make up for the property's disappointing state. They offered free massage to compensate for the all hassles, requested one of theif staff to accompany us to the main road and help with the transpo. All in all, hotel experience did not represent a good value for money. Yes, it is a beach front property very near d'mall but that's just about it. Will i book it again? I would think twice. Kudos to the friendly and accomodating staffs for doing a great job!

Tired from a 7-step procedure having arrived at Caticlan by air, & from walking briskly for 10 min. from the main road to the hotel, our party of six adults was welcomed by Sheena, the front desk lady who promptly cheerfully checked us in a couple of hours early & even upgraded us to rooms that open to the pool. She also handed us one Php500 gift voucher per room for the Paraiso Grill. We were given refreshing chilled mango drinks, shell necklaces & cold moist towels- a truly wonderful touch. Sheena made our day. That’s Filipino hospitality. Tiptop service with a smile. As soon as we got to our room, the safe wasn’t working & the sliding door to the pool failed to latch properly. We had rooms next to each other & were given extra towels on request- simple things another hotel in Boracay refused us so I fired them & went with Boracay Uptown. In 5 min., the maintenance guy came & fixed our concerns but we were leery of the safe box so we never used it. In 10 minutes, the housekeeping lady delivered our extra towels & hair dryer. Wifi was available in our rooms & in public areas. It was so slow that oftentimes, photos failed to download. The room was big enough for several people. We had two queen beds. There was a rainshower in the bathroom. I would have wanted a handheld wand as well. They also had toiletries. The water drained properly in the bathroom. The pool consisted of a shallower kiddie pool & a deeper adult pool (not that deep), well maintained with chlorine & no floaters. It was protected by a roof so one can swim safely even during a rain. There were lounge chairs & tables close by. When we opened our patio door, we had direct pool access. We swam in the evening though the water was quite cold. The front desk had towels for pool use. There was a bar near the pool. Breakfast on the 5th floor was a sumptous buffet from six to ten. They have an egg station, fruit juices, bread, tropical fruit slices, hot beverages & an array of warm rice (fried & steamed) & Asian dishes. The place was kept in tiptop shape by several waiters who filled my water glass several times & promptly too, like in a cruise ship. The evening entertainment by the Lobster Grill next to the beach was great. There was a guitarist who performed nightly from seven to nine. He had a soothing voice that pulled in tourists walking by. His awesome guitar skills and voice were relaxing after a day’s beach activities. You’ll see him in my photos. They had a tower drink that was fun to watch. They also served other drinks & food- even a regular dinner. A rock band performed after him- not my cup of tea so off we went. The hotel is right by the beach. Take a few steps & you are in the midst of Station 2- the activity center of Boracay Beach. There are many restaurants, shops, massage places, etc. just a few steps away. Of course, there’s D’Mall, too. I recommend this hotel by the beach. If we were to go back to Boracay, we’d most definitely stay here again- Boracay Uptown, the hotel that serves customers with a smile.
