Beachcomber Resort Boracay
Travel Blogs from Boracay
The white sand beach in Boracay is the number 7 of the top 10 Beaches of the world according to Yahoo. I think they are biased towards beaches in the states as three are outside of the states. From my beach experience, it was the best natural beach I have been to. Miles of soft white sand with the beauty of the turquoise ocean by its side. Truly …

The night turned out to be another unexpectedly late one. Ryan and Josh decided to join the live band and play a couple of tunes. They figure that they are good enough to start up a band here in the Philippines. ‘Three is a Crowd’ will be huge one day. After a few ...

On Wednesday we set off in the sunshine to go island hopping and snorkeling on a little outrigger boat. Little kids were doing backflips off the side of our boat and some arrogant Chinese tourist was throwing coins to them. After 30 mins of basking in the rays and snorkelling in one of the reefs beside crocodile island we got caught in a wild monsoon. It poured with rain for hours which was quite fun in the end. Some of the guys saw ...

Occasional ones are being set off all night, but an absolute barrage of fiery and colourful arsenals lambast the sky from about 11pm and continue ad infinitum. It's utterly amazing, watching from a 5thfloor open balcony area where it seems you've ordered firework displays to be set off across the entire 180 degrees of viewing area that we ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Beachcomber Resort Boracay
My stay here was mostly good but I had a few things that annoyed me. I booked the honeymoon suite and stayed for 6 nights. The room was nice enough, spacious but missing furniture in the living area. There was a small chaise like mini sofa that was uncomfortable and barely big enough for two people. Then there was a weird chair like thing that sat directly on the floor and unless you are nimble and coordinated it was almost impossible to use. Basically, I would have liked better seating in the living room. I also would have liked a tv in the bedroom since the living room wasn't very accomodating. The king size bed was comfortable and the linens were nice. Breakfast was a strange set-up that you have a menu of 5+ things and each night you order what you want and they bring it to you like room service. The food was always great so no complaints there. I was really annoyed about the water situation. Upon arriving I shown the mini fridge which contained two bottles of water and was told they were free but the drinks were not. I made the assumption that we would receive two bottles of water per day. I was wrong, when we went to check out we were charged two bottles per day after the first day, and we were charged a *premium* price for those drinks. I have traveled all over Asia and this was the first time I didn't receive 2 complimentary bottles of water a day. For the price of the room ($120 a night) I thought that was a little crazy. Housekeeping didn't come consistently which meant we didn't get towels replaced, we would run out of toilet paper and the marble floor would be covered in sand/bugs/dust before we would finally mention it would be nice to have the room cleaned. The pool was cleaned daily, but still had alot of debris and bugs by the end of the day. I had them book my domestic airline tickets as well. I tried to do it myself but everytime I called I was put on hold for a long time then disconnected. When I arrived to the hotel they made the mistake of giving me my receipts which puzzled me because I was charged triple what the tickets cost. I remember complaining before the trip that I though the domestic tickets were quite expensive considering how short the flight was. Now I know why they were so eager to book them for me. Also beware of the service charge fees, 6% to use your credit card 4% to use paypal. I do want to mention everyone was super nice and friendly. I do think this is a good place to stay however I would probably not stay here again, I would stay at the Boracay Regency. The rooms are a billions times nicer, pools are more inviting, and a better location.
great little hotel across the road from the beach 2 mins trycycle ride to the main shopping and party area. we stayed in the honeymoon sweet the room was very clean and tidy they are new rooms as this hotel is only 1 or2 years old. hot and cold water showers with good water pressure. when we were leaving we were acompanied by a hotel employee to the marina he paid our trycle fair then he jumps on our boat across to caticlan airport pays our boat then pays our trycycle to the airport then we say our good bye to the employee once were at the airport. now thats what i call personal sevice thank you very much beachcomber a truly wonderful stay.
Wonderful resort in boracay!!
It was wonderful experience for me to stay in bechcombo!!
Clean and friendly..

From booking to leaving this hotel, I was satisfied with everything.
I strongly recommand you to stay this hotel..
It was our first time to visit Boracay. Like any other traveller who wants a perfect vacation, I checked hotel reviews for the best places to stay in considering our budget. Since Beachcomber was a new place, there were not that many reviews. However, it's overall rating prompted me to take a gamble. And I am really happy I picked this place. Management was able to help me book flights for a much cheaper price compared to published rates and they were always one step ahead in helping me on the preparations like offering to arrange for airport transfers to the hotel. Upon arriving at the hotel, we were ushered to our rooms. At first, we were showed a room with twin beds to my dismay since we were a couple. We requested for a room that has a queen size bed and they were more than happy to offer a room with two queen size beds at the same price as the original booking. The room was very clean and well-maintained. Although the hotel is not located on a beachfront, it's very accessible to the beach. The place is also very quiet which helps you relax more compared to the buzz in Station 2. The beddings are very comfortable and there were lots of towels even at the pool. More importantly, the service was impeccable. We will definitely stay in this hotel again when we go back to Boracay.
Although my girlfriend and I are really not married yet, we decided to book a Honeymoon Suite at the Beachcomber Resort. We were excited about the modern elegance of the room, which was more spacious than the deluxe and standard rooms available, at a reasonable price. What impressed me the most was, Beachcomber was able to book our flight arrangements from Manila, after we had trouble trying to book our flights online, at no extra cost. For some reason, the airline was not accepting credit cards from the U.S. at that time. The public relations manager took the time to go to the airline agency to make our flight arrangements.
Un hotel merveilleux
Nous avons beaucoup apprecié cet hotel car les gens sont vraiment très accueillants et gentils. il y a des sourires pour tout le monde. Très serviable et sympathique, on ne peut pas trouver mieux! La chambre était propre et grande (Suite Familliale - on était cinq)! Nous reviendrons...
Beachcomber Resort was highly recommended by friends that just came back from Boracay. My husband, son and I decided to add it to our Orient vacation and so glad we did!
If you guys are planning to go to Boracay, I highly recommend this resort. Beachcomber is definitely a very good place to stay.
Superb, friendly and clean hotel right next to the beach
We recently stayed at this newly built hotel and was really impressed! From the moment we arrived, the staff was friendly and helpful, and more importantly our room was clean, spacious and very comfortable.
The location can't be beat as it is just in front of the beach - close to some great bars and fruit shake places (which is highly recommended after a few hours sitting on the beach)!
For this standard of hotel we found it reasonably priced and as competitive as others on the island, and glad that we selected it.
Would definitely stay there again as the hotel provided a relaxing and enjoyable break - exactly what we wanted and hoped for when visiting Boracay.
