Boracay Gems
Ranked #54 of 176 Specialty Lodging in Boracay
Reviewed May 11, 2015

Stayed in Diamond room for 3 nights as Jade was booked. It was a spacious room, but everything was on 3 floors. Entrance is on the ground, living room and bathroom on the second, and bedroom and balcony on the second. Not recommended for those with weak knees :-p
Personally, I liked it for the peace and quiet and its proximity to all the happenings on the main station 1-3.
The place was kept sufficiently clean, and in room amenities functioned appropriately.
The surprise came in for my next couple nights. I was slated for a transfer to Jade, but due to overbooking, they were nice enough to send me to a room operated by them next door in 7 Stones. This beach frontage room (101A) was huge! And opulently decorated. At around 1000 square feet, I felt it a touch too big for my solo stay. Still, I wasn't one to complain.
I really enjoyed my choice of accommodation for that week, and if its peace and quiet you're looking for, The Gems/7 Stones will be hard to beat.

Room Tip: Room 101A is unbeatable.

Boracay Gems is located in Bulabog Beach--opposite to the White Beach, which is pretty quiet and serene compared to the party side of the island. It has a beach front which has a hammock and lawn chairs to laze under the sun. Sunrise view is simply amazing. If you are looking for a change from Boracay's night scene, stay in Bulabog Beach.

We stayed at Bolabog beach instead of the main white beach for a change to avoid the peak season crowd, so we picked Boracay Gems for it's perfect location. It is right at the beachfront and only few mins walk d'mall and main white beach.
The rooms are clean, with native yet modern furnishings. We stayed at Sapphire and Jade room. Sapphire is a studio room without a balcony, but is nice and comfortable with mini kitchen. The Jade villa is pretty, very spacious, nice interior, balcony with coffee table facing the ocean and the bathroom with a jacuzzi and an indoor & outdoor shower room to compliment a grand stay.

We met the owner couple, they are very nice and accommodating. Till our next stay..will recommend this place!

What more I can say about GEMS, it was excellent! We stayed for 2 nights in Diamond suite, and it is a 2 storey that on 2nd and 3rd floor, first floor is the Sapphire Suite. Spacious room, clean, there's a sofa bed in the hall with kitchen, dining table and bathroom (big corner bathtub too!), upstair is the bed room with balcony. If you wanna sleep well without party noise, this is where you wanna go. It is just a few mins walk to the white beach (station 1 & 2). Friendly staff, breakfast delivered right to your room, you may have your order the night before. We did have a good time with GEMS!

Great location if you are not a party person. Nice sunrise and sunset. There are mosquitoes at night but the rooms are clean. They also need to improve toilet and shower. Overall, I am considering coming to this hotel.

Room Tip: Choose Room facing the beach (Opal or Ruby). I stayed in Sapphire Suite on the side of the Hotel re...
