Boracay Peninsula Resort

In our four-day Boracay sojourn, we stayed at Boracay Peninsula Resort, one of the beach-front resorts in Station 2. It was built in 1999 and has 40 rooms (some with verandas and balconies). The first thing you’d see upon arrival is the swimming pool right in the middle of its two buildings.

Room

We picked two standard rooms on the second floor, a triple sharing room and another room that is good for two. I shared the triple sharing room with Alchris, Nahnah, and her daughter. The room is spacious, with a single bed and a queen-size bed. It has an A/C unit, TV with cable, a vanity mirror with drawers, two rattan chairs and a table, mini ref, electric fan, and this big open closet with hangers.

Our room has a terrace only it didn’t give us a view of the beach. Going into this area is like entering an oven, it was really hot. The good thing about it is if you hang your wet clothes here, they’d be dry in no time.

The bathroom has a toilet and a shower with a heater. No bidet, but it is equipped with a pail and a dipper.

Now after that little tour, let me share our thoughts regarding the place. [Book via Agoda]

The Good

1. The resort is beach-front
2. It has a Shakey’s branch situated by the entrance
3. The balcony (at least those that don’t offer a view like ours) may be used to hang and dry your clothes with
4. Toiletries and towels are provided
5. The bathroom has a heater
6. There’s a swimming pool
7. Accommodation includes breakfast
8. The staff is friendly and accommodating
9. Despite being located in Station 2 where all the happenings are, we weren’t disturbed by noise when we retired for the night
10. Rooms are spacious
11. The dining area offers a view of the beach

The Bad

1. The place is photogenic, meaning it is not as beautiful as what you can see in the pictures
2. The bathroom can use a little improvement
3. The sink in our room was leaking
4. The TV is old school (not necessarily a bad thing but may disappoint those who are expecting a flat-screen television)
5. The electric fan (both in our rooms) was not working
6. Closet has no doors
7. WiFi is free but weak

All in all, my view on Boracay Pen is positive. First, it didn’t cost us an arm and a leg and we experienced no mishaps in our entire stay. We were allowed to check-in early and the staff was eager and prompt to respond to our needs. Also, I didn’t experience that condition when you have a hard time sleeping in an unfamiliar place, or what we call in Filipino as “namamahay.” The bed was comfortable, the air con was working fine, and as I mentioned above, sleep was not disrupted by the noise of the outside world. And oh yeah, before I forget, the food they served us on breakfast tasted good.

I would definitely recommend it to anyone who is looking for a decent place to stay in Boracay.

    I love Boracay Pen because it's cheap. Saves me money without sacrificing decency. And because it sounds like Manila Pen.

    Ok na ang ganyang accomodation sa akin since di naman whole day ako sa room. For sleep lang. I'd splurge on other things na lang. Importante is malinis, safe at di mainit ang rooms.

    It makes me want to jump right into that pool. Having Shakeys at the entrance is an added bonus. 🙂

    I thank you for the information about Boracay Peninsula Resort! There is a Korean restaurant, so that I think that a large number of Korean tourists seem to have traveled to Boracay. And Philippine Airlines, Cebu Pacific, and AirAsia have operated nonstop flights from Incheon to Kalibo. I feel actually the popularity of Boracay once again.

    PS) I appreciate some useful tips on a trip to Boracay.
