Boracay gems is a pretty small beachfront property that is peaceful and has fantastic view of the sunrise. It's located right next to 7Stones resort. However, it has no facilities. No pool or cafe but wifi is available in the rooms. Contrary to some of the past reviews, guests are not or no longer allowed to use the pool at 7Stones, even if you patronize the pool bar. But the 7th Note cafe serves up pretty good food. There was a security person who sits outside the front office till wee hours but there is no staff after 8pm.
We stayed at the ocean view studio, Onyx room, which was just right for 2pax. Not sure if it happens to other hotels along this side of the island, but the electricity supply fluctuates throughout the day so we had blackouts during showers and aircon keeps getting turned on and off. Other than that and the Mosquitos that bothered us, it's location and room was pretty decent for the price. It's about 6-8mins walk across the island to D'mall.
