The hotel was nice but at least my room was in need of a major renovation. Everything including the tv remote needs to be updated. The bed, the shower, the toilet, and private pool all need to be upgraded to the something modern. I'm sure this was a beautiful room in 1984, but unfortunately this is 2014.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Good hotel away from the crowd"
Good location, nice view - away from the crowded white beach. Ideal for relaxation and time off with someone specialGenuine Expedia guest review
"Not worth it."
Thank God we only booked this hotel for a night. When we got there, the security personnel didn't think tht we were going to check in. The facade was awesome but the room needs upkeep. The in room pool had no heating so it was a cold pool. The showers needed sometime before the water heated. The bed was horrible. It did have good views and the pool […] was nice but needed some heating. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Grand Vista is an apt name for an amazing location, view, and room."
The rooms are amazing. Most or all have private pools by the balcony looking over the ocean. It's quiet and very pretty. The service is outstanding. The location is about 15 minutes from all the action which is really quite nice. The dinner food is not great, however, it has a fine breakfast buffet. I would certainly stay here again. Loved it.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Location Amazing View"
Worth the price! great staff, super friendly and helpful. Amazing view of the beach, hotel is high up on the mountains. Great facilities, initial room had leak from private pool/jacuzzi on the room balcony overall was good room was happy with it, was upgraded to 4th floor room was twice as big, separate bath and toilet beautiful balcony pool/jacuzzi […] well worth it. Amazing views of the beach, took tons of great pics! restaurant is separate from hotel, but very convenient just few feet away from main entrance, pool is super nice, and cabana area is very cool. was very happy with the overall hotel.

"Nice hotel bit far away"
This hotel looks very grand but is rather old and therefore not in supreme condition. There is an individual spa pool in the rooms but we didn't use it. The location is not convenient but there is a shuttle taking you down to main areas hourly. Tricycle can be called and will cost around PHP100. Getting back at night is easy by tricycle but goes through […] some dark roads. Not too convenient for party people. Good for people who want a relaxing holiday with good views in the hotel.

"Preiswertes Hotel für den Romantikurlaub zu zweit"
Landschaftlich sehr schön gelegen, wahrscheinlich das einzige Hotel auf Boracay mit Rundum-Panoramablick. Sehr ruhig gelegen, leider zeitweise Baulärm vom Nachbargrundstück. Die Hotelanlage wirkt gepflegt. Penible Gründlichkeit sollte man bei manchen Details jedoch nicht erwarten. Toller Pool, Liegewiese und romantische kleine Pavillons zum Verweilen. […] Die Zimmer sind groß. Das Mobilar ist modern und von gehobenem Standard, wenn man vom "Kleiderschrank" absieht, der eigentlich nur eine Wandnische ist. An die fehlende Trennung von WC und Dusche muss man sich gewöhnen, aber alles ist, wie das ganze Zimmer, sehr sauber und wird gut und regelmäßig gereinigt. Leider liegt der Privatpool fast ganztägig im Schatten und war dementsprechend kalt, trotzdem ein tolles Detail. Der kostenlose stündliche Shuttlebus lässt die Entfernung zum Zentrum (ca. 5 Kilometer) und zum White Beach schnell vergessen. Wir haben ohnehin den näher gelegenen ruhig-romantischen Puka Beach bevorzugt. Wer asiatisches Frühstück mag, kommt durchaus auf seine Kosten. Das Angebot könnte jedoch vielfältiger sein.

Trivdes väldig bra på grand vista och deras staff är väldig bra och glada. Rekommenderas om man vill ha lite lugn och ro.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
部屋からの景色、プールからの景色は最高。部屋に清潔感もあり、ホテルでゆっくりするには最適。但しシャワールームが使いづらい。トイレと非常に近くて、水浸しになる。アメニティー、朝食は充実していない。Genuine Expedia guest review
照片上看起來光鮮亮麗，看起來似乎很好，但實際進去卻很普通，而且還有蜘蛛網，然後池水整個很髒，上面還浮一層油，然後一堆小蟲子在上面，熱水壺有，但插頭卻不能插，八成是前一個房客把變壓器拿走，但我們就不能用了，也不提供新的，更糟的是，無線網路很慢，幾乎無法使用Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Boracay Grand Vista Resort & Spa"
今次我入住既係 Honeymoon suite, 有私人泳池, 間房好大,public 個泳池都好大好舒服, 仲望海ga, 不過附近就乜都無, 都要去返station 2 先有野食, 早餐buffet 算係我入過咁多酒店最少選擇既一間, 但整體感覺好好, 好relax, 好靜^^Genuine Hotels.com guest review
前回来たときはホワイトビーチのホテルでしたが、今回は丘の上に景色の良いホテルをえらびました。とても落ち着ける部屋で素敵な時間をロマンティックにすごせました。ただ経営者が韓国人なのでほとんどのお客は韓国人でした。ほてるのレストランは美味しいのですが、メニューに書いてあってもつくってもらえないものが、結構ありました。Genuine Expedia guest review
"Boracay Grand Vista Resort & Spa-景观房。出行不够便捷"
蜜月房，海景无敌，周边很安静，设施齐全，比较显档次。缺点：房间设备稍显陈旧，由于大都是白色装潢，略显卫生做的不够彻底。总体还好，交通不太方便，下山的路好长Genuine Hotels.com guest review
沒想到这么貴的酒店居然沒有免費的機場接送服務; 房間里的游泳池水太涼﹑沒有按摩功能和感覺不太乾淨所以沒有使用; 沒有拖鞋﹑浴袍和浴缸; 房間的窗簾是壞的; WIFI訊號不好, 房間里經常斷線Genuine Hotels.com guest review
酒店的整体设施很棒 外观很美 泳池堪称奢华 尤其晚间，非常的漂亮 服务人员的素质很高，整体来说很满意 当然也有一些小缺点，比如酒店的位置偏僻一些 每次去D`MALL都要坐车。班车间隔的时间是1小时，有些久。比我们更远的香格里拉班车是30分钟，相比还是有些差距。而且早餐的种类非常少，量也很少。稍微晚一些就什么都吃不到。 酒店每天都会提供2瓶免费的饮用水，不过我们入住期间只有入住当天提供了，之后再没见过。让人有些失望。Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Best customer service in Asia!"
This hotel presented really well and whilst there were a few issues while we were there the staff were the friendliest and most helpful we have experienced in Asia ever! The restaurant is being renovated so they serve breakfast in a small room down stairs and the selection of food and quality is shocking. There is no egg station but you can order them separately and they will make it for you it just takes ages. The variety of fruit was poor and there were even ants on the breakfast table one morning. I assume this is a temporary problem for them but I asked the staff and renovations won't be finished until July so if you stay before then keep this in mind. Sometimes the water would not run hot and the power flicked off a few times but would come back on within 5 minutes or less. They don't change the sheets every day so just ask them if you want this done. We had a villa called the honeymoon suite and it was really spacious and clean, it has a small pool on the balcony but there were always bugs in it so we never swam in there. There is a hotel shuttle every hour that takes you to the main strip which is good as it is about a 10 minute drive. The only disappointing thing was when we were checking out housekeeping said 2 beers were taken from the fridge and both my partner and I cannot drink beer because it has yeast in it and we explained it could not be possible. They wanted to charge us PHP200 and my partner was just going to hand it over but I refused as it was not right for them to do this to guests! My advice is to count them yourself when you arrive and even take a photo to avoid being charged or having to argue with them. Other than that I give this hotel 8/10 for the service especially!
02/23/14 chefjeff60 Federal Way, Washington
We stayed here for five nights. check in was fast and our room was big with a nice view and a really cool private pool...The van into D mall every hour was great and it's just a short trike ride to Puka beach. That's about all the nice things I can say the room needs to be updated the bed was hard as a rock the towels were so small and old it took like three to dry off. the toilet was in the shower... The internet will not work in the room you have to be at the front desk to log in so don't even think your going to have wifi in your room or anyplace else in this hotel. it would not even work at breakfast. Oh and Breakfast was included with the room I guess that's good because it is no good at all.... This hotel could be very nice with a little love and care and an owner that cares about quality and customer service.

If you are looking for honeymoon acommodation, DON'T choose Grand Vista!!! It is soooo disappointing! It doesnt look anything like on thier webside! Everything is old, rusty and not quite right.The first night I woke up with an ant crowling on my face! ANTS are everywhere, all over the room and the restaurant. We booked the hotel as it meant to be a "spa resort" with a gym. Well the gym and spa is not even build yet and building work is in process, which is even worst as the noise is terrible: constant sound of hammers and concret mixer, makes it impossible to relax around the pool. If you mix it with a terrible, very loud music that blasts from the pool bar every day, it makes you want to screem and run away... Food is terrible too and very expensive, cold as the kitchen is not even in the same buildind as the restaurant.The restaurant is dirty and very small with ants crowling on the tables. It is a shame, as the hotel is placed in a beautiful surroundings and could be a fantastic place. I guess the owner needs a wake up call, because the reality is far from whats painted on internet.
"I nobody recommend this Hotel."
01/27/14 Igor K Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, Russia
The Hotel not so bad .I was there from December till January and service leaves much to be desired. When we looked on their site photo of rooms they look perfect. My wife decided to book a newly wedded couple room. On photo we saw 2 birds on a bed, leaves of roses on water surface of a pool. The water of a pool is too dirty, you can pick up any infection in water. They have pump for pool but without filters. The view of room is terrible, everywhere you can see spots of rust. At the end of our residence, the phone of my wife was stolen by room service staff, because when we packed our luggage in this room the phone was in room on a bed(The phone was white with white flip cover on a white bed) and when we were leaving this room we didn't noticed it. We moved to another Hotel by their bus, when we came to our new room and started to unpack our luggage we noticed that we can't find my wife's phone. We called to our Grand Vista & spa Resort to the reception and asked them to check our room, they told us, please call in 5 minutes. When we called once again they said that they didn't find anything in your room. One more now there they do big renovation with another part of building, before there was a kitchen, but now they did kitchen from one of the room. I nobody recommend this Hotel.
"Paradise with Private Swimmingpool"
11/27/13 debra b Bacolod, Philippines
It is one of the best hotel ever. I mean the view was spectacular. Even though they have some renovations, the hotel nailed it. Perfect for honeymooners. Their public pool was huge, and they a floating bar too. Out room was huge, bed was so comfy, bathroom was really nice and the private swimming pool is really really impressive + the view from your hotel room. It is just wow factor for us. The shuttle leaves on time and pick you up at the mall u til 10pm. No wifi at the room just at the lobby but you don't need wifi coz everything inside your room was enough for a nice honeymoon and time with your partner. buffet Breakfast is free, they serve fresh fruits, asian meals, continental and coffee too. By theway we got out hotel for 3,200 pesos instead of the original price (16,000) a night. It's a deal in paradise.
"Honeymoon stay almost perfect"
07/28/13 hashtagjerry San Diego, California
I would easily have given the hotel 'Superb' for food unfortunately the dining (overall room comfort/staff) experience ruined the morning for me. The cook/waiter slighted a comment that we we're the only 'foriegners' who checked in the hotel directly referring us being Filipinos (even though we were Fil-Americans). The majority of guests were Koreans and had a feeling that the staff was more attentive to foreign guests than 'locals' who looked like Filipinos in appearance were considered inferior. This observation was supported by the front desk staff 'genuinely' greeting ALL foreign looking guests passing through with the exception of course of Americans looking like locals. The hotel gave us a corner room which was great. The night we checked in I walked from the room to front desk and report the multitudes of Black ants marching in almost every corner of the room and most vertical and horizontal surfaces. There was a torrential downpour that night and the hallway leading to the stairway (yes,no elevators) was in ankle deep water. The staff offered to bug spray the room. Seriously? That was the best solution for a weary guest who just had to wade through flooded waters? I declined because I wanted our honeymoon stay not remembered by the scent of pest repellant.
"Nice Place to see Boracay from the Top"

If you want to saty away from the busy night life of boracay white sands, this is the place to stay. Nice hillside view of the island. Big room with your own private pool. Shuttle service free to and from dmall of boracay. Ok selection of breakfast buffet and nice pools to swim.
"Pathetic mouldy hotel with ACTUAL HIDDEN charges!!!"
12/28/12 Kaiobiken Brisbane, Queensland, Australia
My family and I stayed at this hotel for 5 nights and will never stay there again. 1. I was charged $507 despite was only quoted $447 due to the high conversion rates to PHP - WHICH WAS NEVER MENTIONED ANYWHERE where I booked. Not at all a good business practice. 2. Only two menus were only available for the rest of the restaurant asI was told the rest of the menus were distributed into the rooms. The beef caldereta (filipino dish) were very hard and the chicken was still bleeding. 3. The bathroom curtains were mouldy and the bed sheets (upon closer inspections) were also mouldy. 4. To be fair the staff were friendly, but a lot for to be desire for when it comes to training.
"Lovely , Grand hotel"
06/28/12 truffles101010 Manila, Philippines
The location is far from the whitebeach although they have shuttle which can bring you back and forth with their every hour shuttle service. The hotel itself has a grand facade, with the white paint, it's lovely to look at. Inside the hotel room, it has big and spacious floor area, with elegant furnitures and fixtures, although the bed, it's really 2 beds combined to make it appear as a one big bed. The balcony is very nice with great view of the beach. And it has it's own private pool, but the main problem is the water is so cold. If it's summer and the weather is very hot, it can be tolerable to take a dip. But for people who can't tolerate cold water, this may not be for you, and you can't appreciate it, maybe just for taking pictures and showing off . But over all, i enjoyed my stay here. It's kinda romantic, especially their main pool. It is huge and nice. Their restaurant, very expensive. We stayed in the white beach for 2 days enjoying the water there and activities before staying here on our last night. Just make the most out of white beach before you decide to stay here so as to enjoy their amenities and location.
"Huge Rooms but expect to be ripped off on food"
11/15/11 lakatwmn Manila, Philippines
The hotel rooms are huge! No complaints there. There's even a jacuzzi in the balcony which was cool. The bathroom was a little odd for a resort of this caliber but still ok. It is far from the beach so expect to ride the shuttle service a lot - which is every hour anyway so not really bad. Don't eat at the hotel! The breakfast buffet is more expensive here than in any of the 4-5 star hotels in station 1. And it's not nearly as good. It's a rip off.
