TravelPod Member ReviewsCrystal Sand Boracay
The Crystal Sand was a hotel that everyone has to stay at least one night in Boracay. The interior of the outlook of the hotel is very western style and the staff there was extra friendly. I bet you can not find a place with a better staff and service. The hotel included American and Filippino style breakfast with shampoo and conditioner along with a soap. The great thing about this place is that if you call eariler about a week, you can request a pick-up from the airport and also can request a different sized bed. Over-all, its simply the best!

... Haha. I don't know if it's because I'm a woman alone, but everywhere I go I have great company.
The flight was non-eventful, and when I arrived in Kalibo I was herded on to a shuttle van, then moved to another van, then off to Boracay via Catlican.
The shuttle van was great- I was with a hilarious Filipino family going on a family vacation, and they spent the ride teaching me Tagalog and sharing snacks. When we got to Catlican we ...
... meteorological not emotional, though the resultant cloudy weather may have affected the emotional states of the Koreans and other tourists searching for sun. Not us though. Gen was happy to get out of the sun, and not get any more tanned than she already is. It was quite cool though because it was like a thunderstorm could break out at any moment but it never actually did. And it was still very pleasant - still shorts and flip flops weather, which is ...
