... in the water. There wasn't a lot of fish, but the water was pretty, but challenging to not get carried away in the current. She did great as usual, shes a great swimmer. Off to stop two.. Crystal cove. Sounds interesting. Lots of other boats are docked here.. Must be great!
We walked in after paying our entrance fees. The made made buildings, of stucco and stone looked abandoned and unkept. We followed the path and the cheesier it got. " this is a hot spot?" I asked our tour ...
... the seas are quite calm and not too many big waves. The water is clear, the sands white and powdery.
The other day we took a walk over to the Eastern side of the island, which is on the Sulaman Sea. (again - no knowledge of such a sea!!!) The Eastern side of the island has HUGE waves and it's known for it's kite surfing. Sure enough, that's all you could see, was kite surfers. It was great to watch. They certainly can get ...
... tip needs to be relative. So we agreed on 200 pesos & thought that would be it. Nek minnit in the morning we discovered that the girls gave him 500 each! Fellow travellers do not fall into this trap :) It's sweet but crazy :) This was our last evening in Boracay & we have really enjoyed the visit. If you just want to relax I'm not sure if this is the best place for you but if you want a mixture of relaxation, shopping, nightlife & adventure then you can't go ...
... throught the roof we ended up staying on Boracay longer than we imagined. However we managed to get a flight for Coron and headed on to Coron ready for island hopping and diving.
Ready for another long day of travelling we left Boracay at 445am on a tricycle to the ferry to Caticlan where we got a bus to Kalibo to the airport for the flight to Manila where we would connect to Coron after a 5 hour wait.

Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN Boracay Tropics Resort
the first thing i noticed when we were going through the formalities of what would be our 3-day stay at this hotel is its friendly staff and the laid-back atmosphere. the rooms were great, although the one we had didnot have a bath tub. if your idea of a vacation is to relax and just let time pass and enjoy every minute of it, then this is the place for you. although the breakfast buffet was not what i was used to, having been to other hotels that have wide varieties to offer on their menu that just suits a voracious glutton like me, it still made me feel like i was having a good old-fashioned home cooked meal. although i might try a beachfront hotel next time, i still think this hotel is a great one, and i can't over-emphasize how the friendly staff made our stay a memorable one... and a million thanks to my eternal friend...
This place is a winner!!
I loved our stay at Boracay Tropics. The place is magnificent, the rooms were great and clean, the breakfast buffet was superb!! The place is small, quiet and relaxing. It makes you want to stay inside the resort and enjoy the peace and tranquil surrounding.
However, if you are looking for a place that is closer to the beach then this is not it. It's a 3 minute walk to the beach and it is far away from the night-life. But, for me personally, it was all worth it.
We enjoy our stay in Boracay Tropics. It was truly a very nice hotel to stay. The location is just right. Few walks from the beachfront and far enough with the noise and too much people. A family resort as it is and a serene place to enjoy Boracay. The people are geniunely nice and friendly. The housekeeping and dining staff are commendable. We love the pool and the landscape. We will surely come back in this hotel. Truly an A+++ for us!!!
Gosh! it was my first time in Boracay with my friends!! We are not that much excited talaga! ano ba naman na magising kami at around 2am! yes! 2am to catch the first flight..and then..Caticlan Airport na..We love sana to ride the trike..but, somebody approached us with a placard (my name on it!) welcoming us! meron pala kaming service! then..a banca! walang hanggang picture taking! and eto na..talagang di kami nagkamali to chose Boracay Tropics! na love at first sight kami..! we love them all..tama...first rate talaga ang inyong staff and crew..me sumama pala sa amin...si "CALOY" ! but, di namin sya pinansin..buti na lang maganda ang pool! kaya naglunoy ang aming mga beauty..the staff are so amazed to see our guts to wear those skimpy bikinis and two piece bathing suits! kesehodang naka sweater ang ibang guests...bakit? nasa Boracay kaya kami..kaya...feeling summer..kahit signal number 2!! i cant forget that talaga...babalik kami dyan...PROMISE!!
Relax in this Family Friendly Resort
I have been to Boracay several times with my young kids and stayed in diff. resorts. This time we tried the few month old Boracay Tropics and I was very happy. The rooms are spacious, nicely interiored and they are generous with the extra beds/breakfasts. My kids spent a lot of time in the nice pool. The resort is not at the beach front and has a perimeter wall and nicely landscaped garden surrounding the pool. These things make you feel relaxed and away from the hustle and bustle, perfect when you have kids. You'll feel safe having them run around and yet the beach is just afew minute away.
My husband and i wanted to relax and leave the bustle and hustle of the city living so we decided to spend quality time in boracay (for the holy week trip)...The room was clean, but lacks facilities/toiletries like toothbrush, toothpaste, comb, shower cap, slippers, bath robe, do not disturb and make up room signages, and esp. blow dryer --can you believe that? i have visited most of the best and simplest resorts all over the world and even the simplest or a 3 star resort provides a hair dryer for each room (thats what the women need the most!!!)... anyways, the service provided by the man who picked us up from the airport and the restaurant staff at the boracay tropics were great (esp. cathy who has always been attentive and smiling and some of the guys staff --i dont know the names coz they didnt put on their name tags--sorry couldnt give you good compliments!!!--better put your nametags next time to get noticed and complimented when needed)...regarding the front desk staff/officer , we are not satisfied with their service...they are not really friendly, not accomodating,not approachable, not really courteous especially the ladies...they simply are not smiling..i also noticed that the front desk staff named eunice and divine, wouldnt even bother to smile as the customers walk in the lobby, arriving from a tiring walk to the beach ...i would rather recommend the restaurant staff to be assigned at the front desk (it seems like they know this job better than them) to set your clients moods and be more satisfied with the service...who would want to see a poker-faced during a holiday trip???
Loved Boracay Tropics
I really liked our stay at the Boracay Tropics Resort. The resort is very clean (2 months old). The staff was great. It's a 3-minute walk to the beach, which didn't bother me. Oh ya, and the complimentary breakfast was very good. I definitely recommend this resort.
