Cheap Accommodation In Boracay Station 2

I do have that fantasy; waking to the sound of waves, sipping from a glass of wine — but I don’t like wine so let’s make that a glass of mojito —  spending the lazy afternoon gazing out to the sea, feeling the warmth of the sun on my skin, all to the confines of a beautiful room that faces the sea. But then who doesn’t want this? When we go on a vacation, doing it in comfort is of course very much desired. In Boracay, there are many accommodation that can offer these things and more. With beauty and luxury though come a hefty price tag; high-end beach front hotels carry a daily outlay of 3 to 4 thousand, and that’s the lowest. But what good is a posh accommodation if you will be spending more time outdoors.

So when I went to Boracay last April I opted to book a room that is decent but kind to the budget. When I say decent I mean I don’t care if the room is small, so long as there is a clean bathroom with a clean bed. I managed to find one that fits the bill through Airbnb, a website for people to rent out lodging. The room can be found at Villa Lourdes Resort, an apartment-type accommodation that sits at the heart of the D’Mall on Station 2.

It’s only 1,200 per night and the room can billet 4 to 6 people. It’s a no-frills fan room with one queen-size bed, a double-deck bed, and an attic with a mattress. Despite being a budget lodging, the room is neat, has a TV with cable, own bathroom with toilet, and they even provided us with towels and rolls of tissue. [Read: Tips to Enjoy LaBoracay]

It’s not beach-front compared with Boracay Peninsula, the hotel where my friends and I stayed last year, but I didn’t mind because it only takes a 3 to 4-minute walk to reach the White Beach. Also, even when it’s close to where the action is (in fact it sits so close to a club), the noise doesn’t reach our room. [Read: Review of Boracay Peninsula Resort]

Aside from the budget-friendly rate, what compelled me to book this place is reviews that it gained from some travelers. Now that I’ve stayed there, I can attest to their testimonies. This room at Villa Lourdes is a good value for money, it’s big enough to accommodate a group, there is no additional charge for more people, the place is accessible and convenient, and the contact person, Dea, is very responsive.

    Everytime I go to Boracay, I never really panic on hotel accommodations (opps….not when it’s Holy Week, May 1, December). Boracay has all the options—from posh to push lang. Thanks for sharing this. Wonderful addition to my list.

    The room rate is pretty affordable especially when going with a larger group of friends. I like that the toilet is clean, no matter how simple it looked. When it comes to choosing hotel accommodation in Boracay, I can settle for this one over the more luxurious selections since there are more beautiful views and exciting activities waiting outside anyway.

      My thoughts exactly Roch. The important thing is the place is decent.
