Our kids chose this place as we were walking past it. The staff at the entrance was so friendly, and the pool so sparkling and inviting! As someone mentioned earlier, when we saw the place and the rooms we were willing to go beyond the budget. However they were very nice and upgraded us to a very lovely room with an extra bed for our kids. Bathroom is perfect. Separate shower, separate bathtub. Everything was sparkling and had a lovely touch to it. My kids were having a hard time deciding whether they wanted to go to the pool or the tub :-) They spent their days between those two places pretty much! Another plus - this place had a Disney playhouse TV channel for the little ones in our family. We didn't have that at any other hotel in the PI (and we stayed in six during our

The Mandarin Hotel was exactly what we were looking for. The hotel is nicely kept, has a great view, nice pool, attractive from the outside (We found many people who weren't even staying there taking pictures in front of it). The staff is very friendly but don't really go out of their way to assist you with things such as activities. If you are looking for a nice hotel close to "life" Mandarin is perfect. It is steps away from great restaurants and the dmall plus it is beachfront...centrally located on White Beach! The rooms were clean, bright and a good size. They offer beach chairs, nice beach towels and internet at no extra cost. The buffet breakfast leaves alot to be desired so If it is included in your package great but if not I suggest you spend the money

The room was lovely and made even more beautiful because it was so cheap! We had a pool/ocean view. The service was very STELLAR: prompt, EXTREMELY polite, PLUS none of the hotel staff would accept tips, even after we insisted and literally stuck the money into their hands! (Only the massage person and restaurant personnel would graciously accept). The spa and workout gym were still under construction but they still had 24-hour massage services available plus the customer service and treatment was so great that it didn't even matter. They have free internet downstairs, provide complimentary bottled water daily, give complimentary indoor slippers, and the restaurant/room service is virtually flawless. It's literally a hop from the beach and the location between Stations 1 and

I stayed 2 nights at Boracay Mandarin. Front desk officer Leobert happily showed us the rooms when we inquired. When I saw the rooms, I was already willing to spend beyond my budget. I love their pool.....it's perfect for my baby and my family. The following day, I went back to Mandarin to pay for a 2 night stay. We were given a big discount! That's why it's so good to go to Bora during low season. At the Mandarin, it's feels like high lifestyle. The other guests are so decent, I don't have to worry about losing anything at all. I like the crowd there. Our room had an ocean & pool view....which makes it so great to wake up in the morning. I wake up early to relax on the sun bed at the beach. Just when you are feeling thirsty, the waiter would come and ask you for a drink

It is very rare of me to post things either good or bad on any of these travel sites, but please if you're at all considering staying at the Boracay Mandarin Hotel read this review. This is one of the worst hotel experiences that I have every had in my life. I'll start by listing the incidents numerically. 1) The original "deluxe" room that they had a toilet that only partially flushed and eminated a horrendous stench every morning(smelled like the septic system was backing up). 2) The hotel is nowhere near complete, there is incessant loud construction noise every morning, the beautiful spa that is in their website is a total misreprentation, there was not spa functioning during my recent stay. The construction noise is extremely loud and despite my complaints, the staff did
