Boracay Accommodations

Posted by threeFiddy on 25/2/2012 at 16:50

Hi,

I'll be travelling to Boracay in late April and I had a couple of questions...

First, can anyone recommend some good places to stay? I'm looking sorta midrange, say ~50-100 USD per night.

Second, do you think I'd have trouble showing up and finding a place on the fly instead of booking in advance? I find the websites for many of the resorts to be extremely bad, so it's hard to judge which ones are decent without seeing them in person.

Thanks for any assistance you can offer :)

on the fly is no problem and you can find a lot cheaper in Sector 3.

Actually April is a peak month in Boracay. You will probably be able to get accommodations, BUT you may not get the best ones or the ones you like as they may already be full. Or the rates you will get will be higher.

We stayed at Frendz Guesthouse the whole time we were in Boracay and LOVED it! Everyone was so nice, you can meet great people and its pretty close to White Beach. Enjoy your time there, I loved the Philippines so much!

We are traveling to Boracay with family, and are looking for not a backpacker hangout, and quieter beaches at night. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Boracay station 2 is a good place to find a budget hotel/ guest house. Station 2 is very central and also busy. In the high season you should book in advance, otherwise out of the season you can just turn up and find a good deal.
