"Good location away from the action"
The staff was friendly and did their best to accommodate me. However, I had no hot running water. Their suggestion to run the water for a while still did not make any warm water come out. If I have to come back to Boracay I will likely seek another hotel, one with hot water since cold showers aren't my thing.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Loving ur swimming pool view"
I love the place though its a bit far off to the beachGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect Getaway if you want it nice and quiet"
White beach hotels are usually crowded with people. What I liked about our stay at Hotel Soffia was the relaxed ambience of the rooms and the pool. It wasn't too crowded and the hotel staff were accommodating. I like the peace and quiet. If you're a party person and loves the beach, Hotel soffia is a far place (15 minute ride) to Dmall but they provide […] shuttle every hour. The only thing I didn't like about the hotel was the unpresentable cleaning pushcart that greets us as we walk down the hallway. I wish they could hide it if it's not being used.

"Hotel Soffia is a keeper!"
I LOVED my stay at Hotel Soffia. I didn't want the crowds and the noise so I took a chance on Soffia. It was perfect for me. Yes, it was further away than most of the other hotels and not on the beach but I had great views, peaceful, quiet evenings, great food and the staff was really really nice. The coolest thing about Soffia was every hour on the […] hour the shuttle took whoever wanted to go down to D'Mall. This was a great service. And when you were finished on the main beach just be at the bus stop at D'Mall at :15 after the hour and the bus was there to take you back to Soffia! And... Soffia's location made it absolutely perfect for short trips to Puka Beach where it was way less crowded. I was much happier there than the overcrowded main beach where it was impossible to get that postcard shot of the sunset without 50 people in your picture. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great Hotel For the Money Excellent Views"
I loved the hotel free shuttle is always on time. They also offer free shuttle service to the port when your heading back home. The room was very clean and the view from the room and the pool area was beautiful. The only thing I had a problem with was the water pressure. The water would go from warm to cold then to extremely hot.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Quiet Respite Away From Main Road"
I was very satisfied with my stay at Hotel Soffia. The hotel is situated away from the main party strip in Boracay, so you could always get your rest when you need it. Considering the hotel's distance from the main strip, the hotel offers a free hourly shuttle to Station 2, which I used everyday. In addition, the hotel is a short walk from the main […] road, so it was easy for me to pick up basic supplies from a local shack. The hotel is very pretty and designed uniquely. My room was big, clean and bright. The hotel cafe is poolside and they have a wide range of food items. The hotel also provided me free transportation to the jetty port for my flight back. To improve the hotel, they should consider getting wifi routers for the rooms. Overall, the wifi service in the lobby and cafe is quite poor and I think it wouldn't cost too much to improve that. Overall, I was very satisfied with my stay. Great room for the price. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"On top of a hill"
Hotel was far from the beach. waste of time travel to and from the beach. save money and time by staying close to the boat stations.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Far From The Action"
The hotel was farther that what I expected. Boracay is all about the beach and at this time of the year the water is pristine and the crowd is tolerable. The location is really far from station 1. Transportation to and from the beach is schedule every hour though but if you like to commute on your own then you have to shell out some cash. Entrance from […] the street to the hotel lobby is a bit far. When we get there we were soak in the rain no towels were extended. We requested for 1 queen bed and we got a conjoined 2 single bed which is a little bit difficult to sleep. Breakfast is ok and the pool was ok as well. Overall i'd still prefer a beach front resort. i've been to boracay more than 10 times so lesson learn. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Soffia, I would recommend it to anyone."
Upon arrival - late in the evening, they ran to us an greeted us, like we were long lost relatives or distinguished guests putting lays - necklaces of sea shells on us. We felt very safe their, and ate the breakfast their, it was good. Their staff was extremely accommodating. If I ever go back to Boracay, i will certainly stay at the Soffia. Price was […] good, cleanliness was good, staff was very friendly, and Most of all - You feel very safe there. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Homey and comfortable"
I've stayed at the Hotel Soffia twice. It's a small, friendly hotel atop a hill, with views of the ocean. Peaceful setting. Beautful swimming pool. I was suprised and happy to find that the staff remembered me on the second visit. I did have one problem with the reception desk staff failing to convey an important message to me. And it should be noted […] that there is no elevator; guest on higher floors will have quite a few stairs to climb. But overall, the Soffia doesn't disappoint.

"Quiet and good hotel service"
Me and my friend booked a deluxe room with a balcony overlooking the whole island. Our stay is very satisfactory with the hotel's cleanliness and comfort of the rooms. Daily breakfast is a buffet with a number of food choices and average taste. Though, the location of the hotel is far from the beach front (station 1-3), its a pleasant and quiet location […] made it different from other hotels and they do offer beach shuttle every hour until 12mn which made it more convenient. Overall brief stay in the hotel is good and recommendable. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Review of Hotel Soffia"
The hotel is nicely located up a hill just off the turn off to Balinghai Beach. It has nice views especially during sunset. It quite far from the central D Mall at Station 2. However, there is an hourly shuttle to/from the hotel to D Mall at Station 2 and it takes 15 minutes for the one way trip. It quite convenient most of the time but there were […] times when it was too crowded to get onto the shuttle and had to wait for a backup shuttle from the hotel. This happens when the hotel if filled with guest and during the popular evening slots (8.15,9.15 and 10.15pm). The staff were very helpful and service was excellent. Overall it nice place to stay if you want to get away from the crowds at White Beach and if don't mind the minor inconvenience of the shuttle service. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A perfect stay during Typhoon Ruby"
I would have to admit, I rarely provide reviews unless I've had an amazing experience. I'm a strong believer of praises, not punishment but I also think bad reviews should be provided directly to the Hotel and not on a review site as it can be very subjective. The hotel upon approach was stunning! So well designed and we were welcomed with a beautiful […] shell necklace by the staff. They organized the transfers with ease to and from Caticlan airport. This was something I appreciated. The staff were courteous at all times and it wasn't hard for my mother and I to tip them everytime they assisted us. Arturo was a pleasure to chat too. He is truly a welcoming and possibly the most relaxed hotel manager I've ever encountered. The apartment was clean and the size for the price I paid for was outstanding. The bathroom had full facilities and even consisted of free toiletries and an extra set of toilet paper, which is lack in most hotels in the Philippines. The balcony allowed ample breeze to enjoy the natural surrounds of Boracay. This is truly the best part, is opening the balcony doors to allow the fresh air to come in. After staying a week and a half in Manila, fresh air is a commodity. I also loved how the shower had full pressure and we were on the second floor. Food was OUTSTANDING! The selection of Authentic Philippine cuisine really stood out. The shuttle transfers to and from White beach was fantastic! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Quiet & relaxing"
Enjoy our stay here. As it is located far from the happening place (station 2). This hotel is located at station 1. However, it provides hourly shuttle, so there is no complain about the location. If you're looking for a quiet place, this is definitely the right hotel! We're not party animals though.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Im coming back!"
Hotel Sofia is a very relaxing place to stay if you're not up to the boracay nightlife. Well maintained facility awaits for those individuals who are looking for a time off on their busy schedules. Hotel service from and to the town center is always on time. Magnificent view from the infinity pool is a 10.0. Im coming Back!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Away from the Buzz"
We moved from a beachfront hotel to Soffia for a different experience. It has a good view from the hill top, its away from the buzz and it has an hourly shuttle service. It's not for couple who visited Boracay for the first time because we missed being in the beachfront where we could just jump in the Boracay waters. Its more for a family sort of a […] hotel or those who had been to Bora several times and would want a peaceful vacay. The rooms are clean although the hallways can be eerie because there are only few guests. I want to commend the driver of the shuttle. He always had the smile on his face and confirms that although new he loves his job. Handling people for a long, it always makes my day to hear others be expressive about how they like their job. So if you want privacy and just relax while still get the chance to experience Bora, Soffia is a good choice. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Kinda dirty, far from the beach"
I was taken aback by the condition of the rooms - it was dirty and any infested. Also, the air conditioning units were faulty and I continued to experience these problems despite changing rooms. Staff were really friendly and accommodating though, if that's the one redeeming factor about hotel Soffia.Genuine Expedia guest review
Really nice hotel very quiet location. Not great for kids as nothing there to do for them but still a very comfortable stayGenuine Expedia guest review
"LUXURIOUS, SILENT, GREAT SERVICE, Nice Staff"
We really enjoyed our stay. Location is perfect - away from the Boracay noise. 5 star services guaranteed. All people there were really nice to us and my kid. They made sure that we were attended well. Roundtrip shuttle was complimentary. Though the complimentary breakfast wasn't that great, its something that can be easily improved. Overall, I would […] definitely be back to this hotel and I highly recommend it to my friends and family. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Less than we expected"
Prior to arriving in Boracay, we emailed and confirmed several times with the hotel that they would be providing transportation to the hotel (this is included in your stay). However, we waited for over an hour at the boat dock and even had to find someone to call the hotel several times. In the end we still had to pay for our own separate transportation […] because the promised hotel shuttle never showed up. When we finally arrived at the hotel, the staff showed no concern and never apologized for not picking us up. It was not a warm welcome to the island. The hotel itself was in a beautiful location, with views looking out to the water on all sides. The rooms and interior looked better in the photos but were ok. The beds were flimsy and uncomfortable. There is no safe in the rooms - you need to keep things with the front desk staff in locked boxes. The restaurant staff were kind and accommodating but honestly the food was so bad we chose to pay to eat out rather than eat the free breakfast. The shuttle to the beach was very convenient, it ran on schedule and was consistent. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Room Conditions not so good"
The location of this hotel wasn't that good it's on top of the hill, but they hv free shuttle service send off n pick up from ferry jetty n D'Mall which added in some points for this hotel. However I wasn't satisfy with the room conditions. The shower room is small n water not so powerful especially when too many people having bath in the same time. […] Further, their pillow case got some sting smell on the first nite I stay. This is really a bad impression for me. Another thing hv to mention is the hotel breakfast has not much choice n food are horrible. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice place but shame about the food"
A nice little hotel. The only real complaint is that the food was not good. A real shame because you are forced to take a 20 min ride into town for all your food when we really just wanted to eat in the hotel and admire the view. After 4 days we couldn't really stomach the breakfast any more.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"quite, nice location, good access to other areas"
I like this place...away from the noise and crowds at white beach but accessible if that is your cup of tea via the hourly van to d'mall. Location is vvery nice as in a hilltop so very nice views of ocean and sunset. Close to a couple of the lesser frequented beaches like puka beach and punta bunga. Check out punta bunga before the massive resort there […] is finish...there is a little cove there with the crystal blue water and white beach right out of a post card and no crownds...yet. Must pay resort fee but is applied to consumables. Short walk from the hotel. Puka beach is farther and more crowded but still pretty nice...much more so than white beach in my opinion.

It was a pleasant stay at the hotel Te staff are fvery friendly and accommodating. They tried their best to satisfy with our requests. They had clean rooms and pool.

Everything was perfect except for the location, motorcycle taxi wont go up the hill after a late night of drinking so climbing up while drunk was a hassle. Other than everything else was excellent;)Genuine Hotels.com guest review
hotel was 15 minutes away from the main area (D'mall) but that wasn't a problem because there was a free shuttle going to and fro the area every hour. staff was friendly and greeted us every morning when we went to the lobby. breakfast choices were limited but that wasn't a problem for me since i'm not much of a breakfast person. small infinity pool […] added an interesting touch to the hotel. the welcome drink tasted really good and they hung shell necklaces around our necks. the hotel was kept clean, however there were problems with the shower which clogged up, and the water kept alternating between ice cold and burning hot. we had a blackout a couple of times in the room and there was a particular light that kept going on and off by itself. that was rather annoying but we just ignored it. toilet bowl also sometimes flushed on its own. coupled with the lights, that was pretty creepy but i guess we got used to it after the second day. toileteries were included (toothbrush toothpaste soap shampoo ear buds shower cap) and i thought that was a nice touch. stayed for 6d5n and i thought overall it was fine. no wifi in the room though - hafta go down to the lobby to get it but that wouldnt be a problem if you can tether it from your phone.

"Very pleasant for peace & tranquility"
The hotel has a lovely character, reminding us in many ways of Mama Mia the movie for its setting.

Good to stay there, it is quiet and serene, staff is helpful. Unfortunately there is some development/squatters appearing in surrounding areas, so there in latter years goes the neighborhood.

"Peaceful Hotel, Friendly Service Minded Staff"
This hotel is off the beaten track of White Beach. It offers amazing views of both sides of the island. Transportation to and from the hotel are offered by the hotel, or getting a trike is a small cost. Our room was on the north side. Ask for a room on floor 3 for a better view. Floor 3 also has a very lovely observation deck where one can admire the […] sunsets. The room was small and adequate, cleaned each day, and well used. Unfortunately, my husband was very sick for 3 days from eating at Munchies at Bulabog Beach. He got his money’s worth given he didn't leave the room for a few days! The hotel staff was very accommodating, one of the drivers even picked up yogurt for my husband on one of his town trips. Thank you for your efforts! The restaurant has good food and serves a generous portion (unlike many restaurants at White Beach). Breakfast could be improved by adding fresh fruit to the buffet. The deluxe room has more amenities. There is plenty of hot water and there is NO musty smell in the room. This hotel has a very respectful management team. One can see the managers conversing with the hotel workers. On one of my chats with the driver, he told me he admires and is very happy because he is treated fairly and with respect from his supervisors. A great working environment speads to happy workers and happy clients! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"가격대비 만족 하지만 새벽에 동물소리가 너무 요란"
트윈베드에 4명이 숙박했습니다. 가격이 저렴해서 좋았습니다. 다만 조금 큰 아이들은 트윈베드에서 두명씩 자기가 좁습니다. 메인 호텔건물이 아닌 옆으로 떨어진 별관 같은 단독 룸에서 잤습니다. 오르내리기가 좀 번거롭습니다. 욕실은 깨끗하고 만족스럽습니다. 개미 몇 마리는 머 어디가나 있으니 무시하고... 제일 큰 문제점은 아주 이른 새벽과 아침에 너무 많은 닭과 정체를 알 수 없는 동물들의 울음 소리 때문에 숙면을 취하기 어렵습니다. ㅜㅜ (매우 크리티컬 하죠?) 도로에서 호텔까지 올라가는 길이 가팔라 트라이시클은 매우 요란한 소리를 내며 올라가야 하며 잘 올라가려고 하지 않습니다. 이점 유의 하세요.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
조용하고 잘정돈된 리조트이고. 셔틀이 한시간에 한번씩 디몰로 나간다.다만 이곳도 새벽에 개나 닭이 운다.조식은 필리핀식?아메리칸식? 선택을 하고.한국인은 김이나 김치가 필요하다. 직원들 친절함은 괜찮은편이다. 잘안되는 영어로 물어보면 쉬운단어로대답해준다. 해질무렵 풀장의 경치는 죽인다.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
가족과 함께 숙박했는데, 친절한 직원들이 아이들의 장난도 받아주고, 도마뱀도 잡아주었네요. 수영장은 한개지만, 깊이가 달라 아이들이 놀기에도 불편함이 없었습니다. 독채처럼 따로 떨어진 카시타스 룸이었는데, 조용하고 깨끗하고 좋았습니다.(아이들이 떠들어도 신경쓰지 않았어요~^^;;) 아침식사는 2인 무료이고, 뷔페는 아닙니다. 하지만 적당한 양과 적당한 맛이었습니다. 디몰 중심가까지 차로 15분 정도의 거리가 있지만, 매시 정각에 무료 셔틀이 있어서 이동에 불편함은 없습니다. 다시 보라카이에 가게 된다면, 이곳에서만 있어도 좋겠다고 남편과 얘기할 정도였어요. 누구라도 이 호텔을 예약한다면 절대 후회하지 않을겁니다.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
