Where to Stay in Boracay

Boracay is well known around the world for being a paradise. But because of Philippine Government´s move on preserving the beauty of Boracay, they only allow 6,000 tourists to arrive in Boracay per day. Aside from that, before entering the Island of Boracay, tourists should have their confirmed hotel reservation with them. 

The local government of Boracay with the Department of Tourism of the Philippines made a quality check for all the accommodations in Boracay. So if you accidentally booked to a non accredited hotel in Boracay, here are what you should do.

Boracay Island is divided into three station. From entering the island, it starts with Station One, Station Two and lastly, Station Three. Station Three, where you can find all the main water activities. In Station Two is where you can find everything, most of the restaurants, small shops, few activities. It is also the most crowded area. Station One is the most peaceful part and most of the accommodations here are a little bit expensive. 


Isla Gecko Resort



We booked in Isla Gecko Resort the same day as we arrived in Boracay. It was hard to find an accommodation based on your preferences but luckily, Isla Gecko Resort has one room left. 


Location



Isla Gecko Resort is located in Station Two. We were lucky because we found a hotel in the middle of Boracay. It is at the back of D´Mall and walking distance from the shore. It is the best location specially if you are travelling with you friends and family because they are nearto everything. It is easy to access to any shops or restaurants in the area. 


Price


2756.00 php / night

We booked a room that is good for 3 persons because I was with my fiancé and his sister. It is not cheap but I can say that the price is good for the quality of the room and its location. We booked on the spot so it was harder for us. 


Room




Our room is quiet big for us. It has a big queen bed and an individual bed. The room is spacious with aircondition, flat screen tv, wifi, closet and minibar. Because of its size, it was not hard to move around even we were three persons. 


Toilet




Their toilet was quiet small. They only offer a shower and the part of the toilet was easy to get wet. It would be nice if they make the toilet a little bit bigger and if they have bathtub.

They offer towers for all the guests and tissue paper. But the rest such as shampoo, conditioner and soap, you need to buy it.

Facilities

Isla Gecko Resort has terrace, bar and they offer breakfast. The reception is open 24 hours and they were all kind and ready to answer all the inqueries.
