... to it, it seemed that they wanna get a picture of them taken in every corner of Boracay. But it was okay coz all I wanted for them is to have fun.
To be honest Boracay is no longer as beautiful as it was 5 years ago. The water is already salty (which it's supposed to be) but for some reason it wasn't that salty before. We could even open our eyes under water and tasting it was not as irritating to the throat ...
... in front of us....then it was definitely rum o'clock! It was so lovely to see Ed relaxed and calm, chatting away and playing pool into the late (well not too late) hours. More wonderful food and Kristine's crazy company and we were off to bed, me ready for my Rescue training in the morning, the other two simply ready to do more sweet F.A.
So, the following day, while Lucy and Ed continued the tradition of doing very little in the sunshine, I headed in to the ...

The clams were big and juicy and cooked with diced onion and tomato, green chillis and whole cloves of garlic, but not very flavoursome. The broth was spicy and good and would have been even better if I had some fresh bread to dunk in it!
The calamari was OK, but the stuffing didn't really work for me - a little bland. I was still hungry but ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Red Coconut Beach Hotel Boracay
In Aug '05 we went to Boracay for the first time. Because of the location, we chose to reserve rooms at the red coconut while we were in manila so we prepaid our airfare and hotels. We had 3 garden view rooms that all smelled like mildew. When we asked for an extra bed, a twin size bed with large stains was brought in and placed on the floor. We had to ask them to flip the matress over. It was so disgusting that no one slept on that bed. The towels were old and worn out, with frayed edges and small holes. They weren't soft and they were no longer white. Even the beach towels were faded with frayed edges. Food trays for the breakfast buffets were not replenished in a timely manner. Our last night, we returned from shopping to find a dead rat on the welcome mat in front of our door.......the only positive is that the staff was pleasant other than that the place is need of many improvements. We will never stay there again or recommend this place to anyone.
My wife and i found the hotel very quiet and relaxing in the rooms at the back the first night my wife was sick with migrain as i was eating with my step daughter she had to use the CR i was helped by two wonderful members of staff Tess and Fran who took my daughter there for me, i also found them very helpfull when it came to information on what to do there and where to go.
AS for food i had no complaint the room was very clean and all facilities worked well.
Looking forward to going again sometime
thank's and well done to all staff
We went to boracay sometime in august. Me and my husband was quite excited as this is our first time to see the place. I guess because of all the good reports about Boracay as one of the best resorts in the Philippines, we had some high expections which unfortunately was not met.
Red Coconut Paradise
This paradise was found by my fiance and a wonderful find it was. Upon our arrival we were greeted by the friendly staff. Our room that we reserved was being remodeled so we were given a ocean front one at no extra charge. The rooms were very nice, clean and comfortable. The beds were great and relaxing after a full day of activities and you are close to them. The food served at the meals was terrific and enjoyed everything we ate. Did not find anything there I did not like which really surprised me. Thanks to the friendly staff there for making our stay so enjoyable and taking care of our needs. They have my vote for us to return for the honeymoon.
Most relaxing and enjoyable vacation in PI
My wife and I had a wonderful time in Boracay. Thanks to the great service and friendly atmosphere. Special mention to Jackie who was always there with a friendly smile. I would say that our group really enjoyed our stay there. The owner, managers and all the staff trully cared for their customers. I would go there again next time.
Family place to stay....
Our first visit to Boracay (Oct 04) with my whole family, sisters and friends (17 adults and 2 toddlers) .... found the staffs really friendly and courteous...clean rooms breakfast buffet is not that great but its ok... planning to go back here again next year....
Red coconut is a great place to stay. Nothing fancy, it's basic, clean and no frills. It is also in the middle of everywhere meaning everything is accessible.
Loved Red Coconut
My visit to Boracay was one of the greatest experiences I've had in my travels the past 12 months. It was made better by the warm hospitality and the great service of Red Coconut Beach Resort in Boracay.
Location: I believe they have the greatest location. Its just about two doors away from D' Mall where one can shop souvenirs. It was really convenient.
Buffet: As buffets go in the Philippines I rate this just average. But they do have enough choices to fill your stomach and satisfy cravings.
Service: Above Average! Tita Connie, the owner, was always around to attend to special needs of guests. Attendants were also very attentive.
