I was with my family last Holy Week (Mar 28-Mar 30, 2018) in Boracay and stayed at this Hotel. The room is good, a 'what you see is what you get' from the photos that Palassa publishes. The hotel staffs are all accommodating and are all available to assist you anytime. Palassa is located at the other side from the White Beach, Bulabog Beach to be exact. It's a 15 to 20 minutes walk to the White Beach. You will be passing by the D' Mall and a street that has houses and some business establishments along the way. I think it is 1 km or so, far from the White Beach. If you are looking for a quiet place then this is the best place for you! However, if you'd really like to feel the 'Boracay vibes', it's better to stay at hotels along the White Beach as the location of Palassa is too

Very stuffy inside. Aircon not working. The masseurs both(1 man and 1 woman) both dont know how to massage. Like caressing us. Ask them to put more force and they rub the skin till i felt that my skin is falling off. Only interested in the money and nothing else.

We've booked this full sea view appartment as our second part of our Boracay vacation. I must say, we were quite disappointed comparing to our stay at the white beach. The appartment looks clean and all and the view from our bedroom is quite nice. There were ants in the kitchen cupboard. Staff is polite, friendly and helpfull to our requests. But the water preasure is quite a pain, you can't really take a normal shower. Everytime we wanted to shower, we had to get down to the lobby to request for better water preassure several times. Also, during our stay, power failed a few times.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your stay here at Palassa Private Residences. Bulabog Beach is not as well-known as the front beach (White Beach), and although White Beach has its soft and powdery sand, we take pride that Bulabog Beach offers a more tranquil and relaxing experience. It’s nice to take a break from all the parties and bars from time to time. As for the bathroom and its needs of improvements, rest assured we are doing our best to remedy this. We plan on making renovations soon, and bathrooms are one of our priorities. We'd like to apologize for this unsatisfactory experience. We hope you have a wonderful day.

Palassa Private Residences, was the perfect choice for me and a couple of my friends. We stayed in Annex A. Which had 2 rooms, each room was equipped with air conditioning, tv and a spacious bathroom. One of the rooms even had a walk in closet! (every girl's dream :)) There was also a kitchen which had all of the essentials, and a small living room with a comfortable sofa. The place was carefully designed, with interesting works of art all around and even small lighting's to make OOTD's in front of the mirror look professionally lit! Oww and did I mention the most important part? THE WIFI, the connection was fast and it never failed us in our stay. Breakfast was included, and I must say their tapa was to die for! It was soft and very flavorful, not to mention the serving size

The place is by the beach so the view is fantastic. The hospitality of the staff & manager deserve a standing ovation. However, it's sad that one can't swim in the beach at Palassa due to extreme seaweed & threats of sea urchins. To get to white beach, one has to either walk, take a tricycle or an electric taxi (like a tuk tuk in Thailand). Palassa is like a 3 mins taxi drive to Station 1 where beach activities, eateries & pubs are in abundance. I do not recommend Palassa for beach activity lovers but if you are looking for a quiet time in Paradise, then Palassa is highly worth considering. It's definitely value for money.

Thank you for taking the time to write about your stay. Indeed, Bulabog Beach is a very relaxing and peaceful place, especially during our lean seasons. And although White Beach has its soft and powdery sand, we take pride that Bulabog Beach offers a more tranquil and relaxing experience. It’s nice to take a break from all the parties and bars, and to just enjoy nature from time to time. I hope you were able to try some of the water sports available here at the time, but if not, then we’d love to have you back again for more sun and adventures! Also, our sunrises can be quite breathtaking. Regarding the hospitality of the staff, we are thrilled to hear of your friendly interactions with our staff and concierge. We work very hard to ensure that all guests receive top notch customer service while staying with us. Hopefully, you'll decide to come back for another stay. It would be a pleasure!

We stayed the annex of Palassa which is one near Lazy dog bed and breakfast. The place is really nice.It has small kitchen and it got 2 rooms(both with bathroom). Its in Bulabug beach which is like the other side of the island. Its not really busy around this area and we kimda prefer it since its away from all the happenings in white beach area.

Our stay at Palassa Residence was peaceful, filled with huge delicious breakfast platters, and super friendly staff. We loved staying on the quiet side of the island away from the chaos on White Beach. It was close enough that we could easily walk there but we could also enjoy our beach, nice courtyard, and local restaurants (which there are some fantastic ones!). The bed was comfortable. We stayed in the basic studio room which was a little larger than average size for a hotel room.
