"Alright beach hotel"
Was an alright hotel near the beach. The beach is a short walk.Genuine Expedia guest review
"good location in front of beach"
its old hotel but best choice in terms of cost effeciency compared to other beach side hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel in need of major revamping and maintenance, especially hillside rooms. No wifi connection until last of our 5-night stay. Property looks much more appealing online than in reality.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Terrible - not the same hotel as booked!"
I booked this hotel as it is on the beach and looks fairly decent. Upon arrival I was told they overbooked and could not put us in the room we had paid for. Instead we were put in an apartment that was located off the hotel property - it was necessary to take a cart just to get there, then upon arrival we found we had to share the apartment with others! […] We only had a room to lock off but all amenities were in the living room which was shared. We asked for a different room or a refund and they would do neither so we stayed. There was no hot water, no television, their credit card machine would not work and the staff was very rude about the fact that we were unhappy. When we went to go to dinner that evening we walked out to where the 24hour security guard was stationed to call us the cart - he was no where to be found and there was no way to call the front desk. So we had to walk along an unlit path that is unpaved about a mile just to get to the main resort. When we returned we asked again for the cart to take us since it since it was too dark and muddy. The guard was drunk so they waved down a local motorcycle taxi. He could only take us part way as the road was too steep so we again had to walk through the dark.

We got a free upgrade from hillside to poolside.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Worst booking ever"
Not booking here again. Staff were not friendly, doesn't know how to converse. Doesnt answer room service phone. Furniture are probably older than most of us. Food is terrible for health conscious people. Rude staff. The bathroom smelled like pee when I first entered. Sheets had a piece of hair. Booked a non-smoking room with double beds. We had no […] choice but to take the one that smelled like cigarettes with a king size bed. Horrible!!!!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"its not bad at all. they have good rooms"
i suggest get the rooms near beach front because they maintain it better than those on the hillside. the location is perfect. a cheap 10 peso ride going to station 2. the perfect beach front. its not as bad as what most people say in their review. just choose the rooms near the front of the hotel. its under rated. this is way better than those hotels […] from station 2 and 3.

We were booked initially for a poolside garden room, but when I called to confirm, I was informed that we were upgraded to the residential suite. Upon asking, we were told that this was located far away from the beachfront, that we had to take a 1minute ride in a golf car. We told them that we paid for the poolside area (which was near the beach, just […] on the other side of the road) for convenience, and that although it was an upgrade, we don't want it. we were told that the rooms in which we were supposed to stay were already fully booked, so that's when we became irate. first of all, we booked almost 2 months in advance so that room was supposed to be saved/reserved for us no matter what. why do they have to bump us out of there? they said there was a problem with the manila office reservations, etc. So we demanded to be immediately transferred to an available poolside room once there is one. Unluckily, we still stayed in the residential suite for 1 night, and even if it was supposed to be more expensive, it just doesn't look like it. Everything was placed wrong, the mirror in the bathroom which was the one and only mirror in the room, the shower curtain, the toilet, the towel rack, the TV, everything! Plus it was so far away, you have to climb up a steep hill. So overall, what we paid for just wasn't worth it. We paid almost PHP8,000 each for nothing. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"good location but the rooms are old"
We stayed here for 5 days.. the first day check-in was 8pm, no welcome drinks or cold towel (it was stated in the service provided). However we enjoy the silent of the location compare to station 2 and station 3. Everything is old in the room, the furnitures, the tv and we had to ask for hot water boiler. One thing that we are not happy is the queen […] size bed actually is the combination of 2 single bed and the bed sheet was old and thorn. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Sometimes you get what you pay..."
That was one bad experience in one of the nicest places (Boracay) I have visited around the world. This, probably in its “golden age” (when was built, maybe 25 years ago) good hotel needs good reconstruction, replacing old drapes and painting rooms. And don’t to forget replacing balcony chairs which (one of two) at the first use was broken and I was […] lucky was not bad injured. Air condition unit was noisy from the first moment – like running tractor in the room until was complete broken and we (my wife and I) were moved to other room, which was much better and we were explained it is charged at the higher rate but we were not charged for the last 2 of 7 days we have spent in this hotel. Bright side was very kind staff at the reception desk, housekeeping and in the restaurant. Hotel is on the great location, close to the beautiful beach and the restaurant by the beach with good choice of food by affordable prices. Definitely place (Boracay) to come again one day but not in this hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Lower your expectations...."
The pictures in the website were probably taken many many years ago. A few rooms have been renovated but the common areas need an urgent upgrade. It looks like there is no regular maintenance and anyone can see things getting old and runed. It is really a shame since the location of the hotel is perfect. In the right place in Boracay at Station 1. Even […] the beach at this area is clean and the water clear. Would really say this as a constructive feed-back to the owners of the hotel since I will likely go back to Boracay and wouldn't mind staying at the Pearl, provided it's renovated.

"Bad expierence at pearl Pacfic"
We booked this hotel as there web site looked amazing , great rooms and amenities. But on arrival it was a huge disappointment hotel was in bad need of maintaince , rooms very bad, bathroom so small, no hot water, Ac never worked our over all expirence was not worth the priceGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We stayed in a two bed suite. It is more like a 2 bedroom apartment. Beautifully designed and new. Showers are awful with no hot water. View is great with balcony although we got the room facing the hills and not the beach. This part of the hotel seems like a new extention and requires a golf buggy to take you from reception to your room. This service […] is available throughout the day and night and also takes you to the breakfast area which is just on the beach at Station one. Location is good except for having to take a golf buggy. Service isnt too good. Forgetting to do housekeeping and no phone in room to call reception for things. Reception promise to bring things but never comes.

Old furnishing hotel . No toiletries. Uneven floor in rm. regret of staying thereGenuine Hotels.com guest review
풀사이드 룸에서 3일을 지냈습니다. 개인적으로 복잡한곳보다는 조용하고 아늑한 곳을 선호하기 때문에 스테이션1 위쪽에 위치한 리조트 위치가 아주 마음에 들었습니다. 디몰까지는 걸어서 15분정도 걸렸습니다. 객실 시설과 가구는 조금 오래된 느낌이었지만 청결했고 화장실에 아무것도 없었다는 후기와 달리 샴푸, 바디워시, 바디로션이 비치되어 있었습니다. 조식은 종류가 다양하지는 않지만 먹을만 했습니다. 다만 힐사이드룸의 경우 2~3층정도의 계단을 걸어올라가야 하고 거리도 멀어서 별로 묵고싶어보이지 않았습니다.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

我跟男朋友一起到BORACAY玩, 晚上8時半CHECK IN, 有WELCOME DRINK。有MAILBOY幫我地拎行李,我地亦自覺比左50PHP TIPS。我地住MAINROAD 後一PART近RECEPTION的房(不用上山), 位置很好。入到房間感覺不錯,清潔的。但要改善的地方是要裝修設備了, 因為都好殘舊, 例如花灑。沖浪水很冷,但試過下午三點幾沖過有過熱水, 因知道菲律賓供應熱水情況差不多,所以沒有追究。冷氣同電視是SAMSUNG的,不錯的!!早餐方面不要期待太高,但都不錯(專人炒蛋好吃)。Genuine Hotels.com guest review
３泊４日で宿泊しましたが、申し込んだ写真の部屋が当日の部屋と違いました。 また、チェックインの際、予約していた部屋はありませんと告げられ、 パソコンのメールをもう一度確認してと言われました、 長旅で疲れ、ようやく到着したのにほんとに気分が悪かったです。 また部屋には歯ブラシがなく、買いに行く羽目になりました。 ドライヤーもなかったですね。 ホテル予約の際アメニティの確認はしていなかったのですが、当然あるものと考えていました。 なんせここのリゾートでは比較的金額が高く、老舗ですから！ 従業員の態度は、フロントの方が対応が良くなかったと感じました、他の外国人も直接苦情を 大声で言ったいました。 しかし荷物も運ぶ方はとても良い印象でした。 部屋も適当に清掃されている感じがしました。 総合的に […] はもっと金額とサービスのつりあったホテルが他にあるのではと思いますので、 ここのホテルはおすすめしません。 他のレビューの方の意見も参考にされてください。 私は予約した後レビューを見たので残念でした。 Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Лучший отель на Боракае за свои деньги"
Хорошо, что я проигнорировал плохие отзывы. Может быть нам, конечно, просто повезло, но у нас был замечательный (за 100$/ночь относительно других вариантов за эти деньги) большой чистый номер вдали от шума дороги. Комната №210. Убирались каждый день, персонал очень обходительный, все улыбаются и пытаются помочь, официантки двигали лежаки и стояли поблизости […] на пляже, чтобы в любой момент принять заказ на стаканчик кубалибре за 100рублей. Идеальнейшее расположение для Боракая. Пляж самый лучший относительно других отелей на побережье. Про 2ую и 3ью станцию я вообще не говорю - проходной двор и помойка. Но даже на 1ой станции в соседних отелях пляж более узкий и гораздо больше водорослей. У нас же всегда был белый песочек и прозрачная вода. Куча зонтиков, бар на пляже, вечером неплохой ресторан с кальянами на пляже в романтической обстановке (относительно забитых дорогущих грязных баров на 2ой станции). Народу никого, никто не ходит перед носом, как на других станциях. а вечером за 5 минут по пляжу можно дойти до тусовки на 2ой станции. В общем за эти деньги в принципе лучшее место. Но если даже рассматривать более дорогие отели с более хорошими номерами, я бы выбрал этот из-за расположения. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Hotel Sordid-Good location, poor service and facilities"
02/12/14 MOHSMD Manila, Philippines
Pros:Location on station one does not disappoint. Cons: Very old and rundown room. We had to climb 100 steps to get to our room. The elevator was never repaired. Room is circa 1970's. Swimming pool was dirty. Poor lighting at night. No room service. I travelled with my husband, 1 year old and nanny. I would never return to this hotel. I have been to Boracay more than 10 times. It was not a vacation for us.This is the worst experience ever.
"Beachfront location in Station 1"
02/01/14 David_T_Zarraga Needham, Massachusetts
While this is one of the older hotels on Station 1, it still gives guests easy access to the more serene beachfront of Boracay while providing decent value on their rooms and service. While I didn't especially find their in-house menu great, it was solid, although you can find more variety in terms of price and cuisine along the dozens of restaurants in Station 2. Note that the hotel has a beachfront building with ocean views and a second building on the other side of the street. I stayed in the second building, which is just a stone's throw away from the powers Boracay sand!
"Totally over rated hotel at its price and location"
01/31/14 Clairerrivera Manila, Philippines
Have to cross the street from the rooms to the beach which is dangerous considering all the motorbikes. Pool's size can be mistaken for kiddie pool than a resort pool. Restaurant is old, leaking, dark and lousy ambiance. Service even worse...... Asked for band aid for my child's wound but there was none. No service umbrella which considering the hassle of their location should be always available and necessary. Rooms are not well lit and broken air-conditioner. Bathroom dark no bidet. A totally horrible experience for the price they charge me. There are Hotels in station 2 way better than this place at more reasonable price. Not fitted for station 1 level. Structure dilapidated already. Only good thing i can say is that since located in station 1 the beach in front of their area is excellent.
"Worst hotel I've ever stayed in"
01/11/14 lynnn80 Singapore, Singapore
We spent 5 nights here and it was a huge mistake that ruined our holiday. The entire place is very old and poorly maintained. We were told our room was newly renovated, but we saw no evidence of that. The room was old and dirty. The telephone didn't work and the TV couldn't turn on. When we asked them to fix it, the TV signal was terrible (see photo), and the phone only worked on the last day of our stay. There were ants and millipedes in the toilet, the towels had stains or holes (see photo), and there was absolutely nowhere to put any toiletries. There were no basic amenities - no kleenex, no shower cap, no face towels. Shower head was old and water splattered everywhere. Bathroom door was on its last legs, an accidental hard push would've dislodged it and sent it crashing down. Our "king-sized bed" was actually made of 2 singles (of uneven heights) pushed together. Also, the mattress was super thin and hard. Will not even get started on the pillows. The room was barely larger than the bed, and the room had no internet. The deadbolt on the door was broken. The chairs on the porch were so old and sun-faded, they should've been thrown away years ago. The breakfast buffet spread was the worst we've ever seen at any resort. It looked worse than the food in prison movies. The pool is sad and tiny, and we never saw anyone swimming in it the entire time we were there. The only good thing about the hotel is its location - right on a quiet stretch of beach at Station 1. However, please bring your own beach towels as we were told theirs were still in the laundry - everyday. I can't understand how a beach resort can run out of towels?? This place is really not worth the money; it's barely budget motel standard. Boracay is beautiful, but don't ruin your trip by staying at Pearl of the Pacific. We made that mistake, and wouldn't wish this upon anyone else. There are much nicer resorts that cost less.
"Great location, awesome beach"
12/23/13 mk2003 port orchard
Situated on the best part of the long beach in Boracay this hotel is quite dated and is going through a room by room renovation. The service was above average, staff was attentive. Biggest bummer was the lack of Wifi in room. It was a good thing we brought our own mobile hot spot. Food was very good, always enjoyed the Mango Shake. Pool is shaded and is always a great escape when it gets too hot.
"Could have been Perfect."
12/11/13 redgotsohigh Manila, Philippines
Stayed for 3 days. Overall the stay was as pleasant as it is. Everything was fine except for some minor stuff. 1. Doorknobs is busted. You thought its locked but it isnt. 2. Mosquitos are everywhere. 3. Food is rather salty or too sweet. But they were kind enough to upgrade my room to a pool view room. (No signs of view though, its just downstairs near the pool. Nevertheless it was a pleasant vacation, staff were attentive, guards are roaming around 24/7 to keep you safe. P.S Their Beachfront is the best out there. Plus to those whose gonna check in. See it for yourself.
"not recommended at all"
12/06/13 Chowxh Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Spent just 1 night here and glad it's over otherwise my holiday in such a beautiful island would be ruined. The only good thing about this hotel is that its located on the best stretch of beach in boracay, BUT, that's only the restaurant part. The rooms and pool are located on the opposite side of the road. Hotel is very old. Shower knobs are broken, shower heads are old and stucked hence water pressure is very low. Took very long to finish a simple shower, and still doesnt feel clean after that. Entrance to toilet and cupboard door are old wooden sliding doors, rusty and heavy. Air con controller is not working hence was sleeping the whole night with 17'C air blowing right at my face. Pool is so small and doesnt look clean. Pricing is considered very inappropriate for this kind of standard.
"Wonderful location brilliant staff"
11/19/13 sallysouthofriver London, United Kingdom
We stayed for 5 nights recently. The best about the Pearl is the location it is at the end of station 1 which means you get the quietness to enjoy the private strip of the white powdery beaches and its only a short walk to the bars/restaurants/shops of station 2. We also really liked our room it was huge with great facilities such as massive bed, fully equipped bathroom, sofa, fridge, dvd player, powerful air con and a lovely balcony. The hotel provides the little touches like a cold drink on arrival, comp mineral water, toiletries, beach towels, really good loungers. It has a great strip of the beach, big dining area and a bar. Much of that is in shady areas. It also has a tiny pool (you won't need it sea too nice) The food is fine we ate a buffet breakfast each day a balance of local and continental/English. We had toast, cereal, fruit and pancakes with scrambled egg most mornings. It is of course all you can eat. We also had a reasonably priced lunch of pizza, fries etc We also had a evening meal of candlelit bbq on the beach. Its not amazing there are so many excellent places to eat on Boracay but it is good and convenient. The really great thing about the Pearl is the staff. They are super friendly and really helpful. There are 24 hrs guards who will help you cross the road, hail a cab and watch your stuff while you swim. The beach traders can get a little much, they stop this. The best by far was a guy called Effran one of the guards he was super friendly : ) The only criticism is some of the furniture/fittings is quite dated. The place needs a re vamp. We loved the location, staff and our room. We had a beach front suite room 109 we think it was one of the best rooms. Overall an excellent hotel with great staff.
"Awesome and Peaceful"
If you're looking for a place to unwind and get some good rest, Pearl of the Pacific is the perfect place to check in! The breakfast was good and the view of the beach was great. We stayed at the poolside so everything in the resort was accessible and our WiFi signal's pretty descent compared to the connection I got from coffee shops. All in all, i'll give this resort a perfect 5!

LOCATION - The property is in station 1 - It's not crowded, so this was a plus - Went here September, though, and Boracay as a whole, was not crowded at all - The hotel property is split in 2 - One part is beach front, where Ocean View rooms are - The other part is at the back, on the other side of the road - Where there's almost 0 view of the ocean - Can't complain, as they say, you get what you pay for =D - The road is just a few meters wide, by the way - So, crossing it isn't really a problem - Plus, their security guard was always alert and ready to help stop the traffic =D ROOM - We were 3 - The size was okay, just enough - It wasn't too small but it was not really spacious either - The door to the bathroom was really noisy though - It's a pretty heavy wooden door that doesn't slide that well - I liked the bed, linens, pillows, etc - It had cable tv, a/c, hot and cold shower, safety deposit box - And oh, we had a veranda =D STAFF - Always attentive - Requests were dealt with ASAP EXTRA - Has strong wifi in the reception area - It was not supposed to reach our room, but it did! - A plus for me was the pool - It was small but it did its job - Was able to do a few short laps, so all is well FOOD - Oh men, this is probably one of the main reasons why I can't say that this is great place - The food is edible, don't get me wrong - It's just that it's either too salty, too sweet, or doesn't really taste much at all - I'm a bit of a weirdo when it comes to rating the taste of food - But my friends also said the same thing (and we really don't share the same taste buds, at all), so I know that it wasn't just me - The serving is hefty, though, so I have zero complaints about that OVERALL - It was a pleasant stay - For the price we paid, I can't really complain - If I will be presented with the same offer, I will definitely grab it and stay here again
