"Secluded and quiet get away"
Our stay was incredible. From the moment we arrived it was a place we will go back to over and over again. It offers the quietness of a peaceful vacation and the access to get were you need to go. The villa we stayed at was very nice with a wonderful master with a yacuzzi tub and upstairs away from the other guest bedrooms. If your going with a large […] group they have a 3 bedroom with 3 bathrooms. The view from the villa was breathtaking. The free breakfast was always delicious. The staff very friendly and helpful. The Manager and his staff do everything they can to be of assistance to you always. The Puka beach is only 5 min by car or trike and it is secluded and beautiful . I can keep on going about how happy we were To stay here, I am an airline employee and have stayed in Many places over the last 30 years and I will say if your looking for a place to stay in Boracay this should be on your top picks.

"Very nice and comfortable boutique hotel."
From the moment we waked up the steps we were greeted by the hotel manager June. The warm hospitality extended us made us feel like we're part of their family. The view from the balcony at sunset is spectacular, also we witnessed a flock of fruit bats migrating across the skies to get their fruits then fly back. We had the garden room on second floor […] which has its own verandar. Breakfast is free and also taxi rides into town. We also went island hopping and snorkeling. The whole experience was wonderful. I certainly would recommend this hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent 4 families, groups, couples or singles."
Really an excellent experience. I needed to combine business within the holiday component and it was wonderful to do that here. The owners, management and staff were all so helpful beyond the normal requirements and just made everything so easy. Internet wireless was an issue with the sat provider, but I was very quickly taken care of with a usb stick […] so my work was not slowed down. A little bit away from the main beach and restaurant area, which I really liked, giving peace and quiet, and they included transport down whenever required. Return was always with a tricycle which I paid but very easy and not expensive. I need to travel a lot and being here was a real pleasure from all requirements. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Relaxation out of town"
The hotel is situated quite a way from town and white beach and has a nice relaxed vibe. They run a shuttle to town (10 mins) on demand and you can get a tuktuk back for about 150 pesos. Staff are incredibly friendly and will do anything for you, they even helped me do the ice bucket challenge (and took a worrying about of joy from it). There are pools […] on site but the slight downside it that it's not beachfront so even though you can see the beach it's really a shuttle ride to get to one, it is pretty close to puka shell beach though which is really beautiful and quiet and a different experience to white beach. Definitely recommend for anyone not so interested in bar hopping in town. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
部屋の空きがあったため、一つ上の部屋にアップグレードしてくれました。早朝に到着しましたが、無料でearly check-inをしてもらい、キレイな海を見ながら美味しい朝食までいただきました！スタッフは皆親切で、とても良い滞在となりました。滞在中は、バンで色々な所に連れて行ってくれたので、とても助かりました♪Genuine Expedia guest review
マネージャーさんを始め、スタッフの方々の気遣いが素晴らしいホテルでした。ボラカイ島に自分の家が出来た感じです！とても居心地が良く、リラックス出来ました。朝食、シーフードディナーも最高に美味しかったです。Genuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel but Home"
The first feeling before check in was not good because of very narrow road condition and air pollution on the way to hotel. But warm welcome, calm and beautiful veiw, very kind staff and clean room made me comfortable and happy. I believe that all guests who plan to stay at Argonuta will be happy like me.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Heavenly. Beautiful rooms, great hospitality."
First of all, I loved the hotel staff. They were accommodating with whatever happened and the smart staff with great hospitality made my trip even more wonderful. Of course, the room was great, too. Coming from Japan, I tend to be a bit picky about cleanness but it was very clean and comfortable. Only thing I would point out is that the bathtub was […] not completely clean- but I guess this is not a big problem for shower users. As the hotel is a little distanced from the center of the island (distanced here means that it is 5-7 minutes away by tricycle), I got to enjoy the touristic part of the island as well as the quiet, tender time around the hotel which is surrounded by great nature.

I stayed with my family (wife, son and mother in law) and experienced excellent customer services with kind hospitality. They do not have their own private beach but provide us free transportation to Puka Beach and White Sands Beach. Their staffs kindly assisted us to find a good private taxi to go back to Kalibo Airport so that we can go back to the […] airport without worrying. The expense for transportation was - Hotel to jetty port: Php 300.00 per vehicle - Boat: Php 120 per person - Jetty port to Kalibo Airport (private van): Php 1,500 per vehicle.

"최고의 휴가 - 보라카이 아르고나우타 호텔"
아르고나우타 호텔은 아주 조용하며, 깨끗하고 아침마다 맛있는 식사를 방에서 제공 받을 수 있습니다. 그리고 뷰와 호텔은 어느 호텔보다 아름답습니다. 바로 앞에 바다가 보이며, 가까운 곳에 푸카 비치가 있어서 손 쉽게 갈 수 있습니다. 저와 와이프는 여기서 정말 즐거운 여름 휴가를 보냈습니다. 저녁에는 발코니에서 맛있는 해산물 요리를 먹을 수 있어요. 제일 중요한 것 중 하나는 호텔 직원들이 가족과 같이 편하게 대해 준다는 점입니다. 정말 최고의 호텔입니다. 다시 보라카이에 간다면, 또 다시 아르고나우타에 머물 예정입니다.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Second time, even better than the first"
01/28/15 rdnck1998 Simpsonville, South Carolina
We stayed in Argonauta for the second time August 2014. It was determined by all to be the best vacation EVER! My seven year old had the time of her life. The property is close to Puka Beach and White Beach. They provided transportation for us and never seemed to be a wait. Breakfast was fantastic! I can't imagine how strong the staff is to carry all the food down the stairs to our apartment. (We had a two bedroom). It was my fiancé, my daughter and my granddaughter. The apartment had the most wonderful views of the ocean. The staff spoiled my granddaughter every time we came up to the main building. She loved to see the birds and the turtles. On the last day, Jun gave her a yellow ribbon and told her she could put it anywhere. She wrapped it around the wooden Indian's neck. The staff was wonderful! It was like a homecoming when we arrived. We talked for a long time before we even went to the room. Jun and Stephanie are the bomb! Nice quiet location, wonderful staff and a fantastic vacation. I wish I could just live there!
"Thanks for an amazing Birthday guys!"
01/18/15 pdaboy Hemel Hempstead, United Kingdom
We arrived at the Argonauta on New Years Eve 2014. Wet, tired and in need of a comfortable and friendly place to stay. We certainly got that at this wonderful little boutique accommodation. A lovely welcome from Stefanie, Jun and the team and a very comfortable room. Nothing is too much trouble at this place. Whilst it isn't directly on white beach and approx 10 mins on a tricycle - the team are happy to run you down to the strip at any time of day. It was my birthday the day we left and as a treat, Jun arranged to cook Lobster, prawns and red snapper for us on our last evening. A very nice gesture and one of the best meals we had in the Philippines. They also arranged for a birthday cake which was so thoughtful. We hope to be able to repay your kindness and hospitality if and when you come over to the UK later this year - thanks again for a great stay at the Argonauta.

Beautiful accomodations in a quiet place on Boracay. Our visit at Argonauta started already very good organized as they arranged a cheap and well done transfer from Kalibo with bus, boat and van from door to door. Once we got through the island traffic, we arrived in a beautiful garden villa with smiling and helpful staff. We had a very comfortable and fully equipped apartment with own terrace with a stunning ocean & sunset view. Room was clean and furniture in best condition, it was made up every day. But best of all: the staff! They are great cooks: tell them what you wanna eat for dinner and they'll buy and cook it for you. You pay market price and a small cooking fee. In all things they're very helpful. They arrange transfers, give excellent dinner recommendations and even guide you personally to the beaches. There is a private beach close to the accomodation. Getting to white beach or wherever you want is just 150 pesos/5mins tricycle ride! We had a great holiday experience with Argonauta! Best wishes Elke & Philip
"Makes you feel part of Boracay"
01/11/15 Sebastian D
I just ended my 8 night stay at Argonauta. After doing a lot of research (being a first time traveller in Boracay), i didnt know what quite to expect, but i am really happy that i chose Argonauta as my place of stay. The rooms are spacious and clean and the property is really beautiful. Who wouldnt love a breakfast or a dinner overlooking the sea on the terrace, surrounded by lush vegetation? You have a decent selection of breakfast meals that you can order (very good pancakes!) and also the other meals available during the day are pretty good. The major advantage of Argonauta is its staff - everyone helped me feel at home and went above expectations. Jun will provide all the info you need of the island, where to go, what to do, to better understand the feel of the place. They drive you anywhere you want to go, free of charge! They gave me medicine while i was not feeling so good and basically catered to whatever need i had. Their location is secluded but i liked it that way - i wouldnt wanna stay in the touristy area of White Beach anyway, after i found out how it is. Argonauta is next to Baling Hai Beach which is great, so if you wanna have a chill day at one of the most beautiful beaches in Boracay, you have it. So i would definitely recommend this boutique hotel, specially to new comers in Boracay and i am looking to come back with friends. Thank you Steph, Jun and all the staff! Sebastian
"Made to feel part of the family"
01/08/15 Selwyn S
We stayed at the Argonauta for the last 3 nights of our 4 week trip in the Philippines. Having met Steph and Jun on arrival, we were made to feel completely at home, like staying with friends rather than a hotel. All the staff are friendly and helpful. A courtesy bus is available to take you wherever you wish to go, and we loved the way Jun, Steph or a member of staff always walked you out to the vehicle. We had room 7 a huge room upstairs with a balcony and great views. The breakfasts, which are served all day is great and there are a variety of places to have it. In the garden, on the terrace or in your room. A fabulous place to stay if you want to chill and relax. Steph and Jun go out of their way to make your stay a wonderful experience.

From the moment we arrived at Argonauta we were made to feel at home. We arrived at 3am after a long haul trip and the crew were there to offer us food and tea. Every request was completed effortlessly and exceeded our expectations every time. It's a 5 min tricycle ride from the main beaches - Diniwid (more secluded) & White Beach (main strip beach). We would be taken wherever we wanted in the hotels van every day, at no charge. The rooms were always clean and maintained well. Filtered water in the apartment. Free wifi, safe, fully stocked kitchen, beach towels. The food is made fresh and at any time of day - just a phone call or a quick stop at reception to put your order in. We even bought seafood from D Talipapa (seafood market) and brought it back for the staff to cook it for us. We were told what prices we should pay to avoid being overcharged as tourists. Jun & Stefi were the most gracious hosts and the extended staff were like our family in the end. A couple of us were sick and they brought us any medication we needed and checked in on us to make sure we were recovering well. They researched surrounding islands for places we could stay when we inquired and gave us tips on what to do or see on Boracay island. We even got taken to a indoor basketball court for a game with the locals and staff (a few of us play basketball). It was truly a bitter-sweet goodbye on our departure. I would recommend this boutique home-away-from-home in a heart beat! Much love to the crew at Argonauta xxx
"Best boutique hotel ever!"
01/05/15 Dmitriy_Larin Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
We stayed in Argonauta in January 2015 for 4 nights. From the very beginning we felt like we're home. Jun and Steph ( the owners) accorded a really warm welcome, and until the end of our trip we were surrounded by very friendly and attentive people. You can always stop by the kitchen and have an interesting chat. Rooms are very cozy and clean, and the breakfast (which is great, too) is served throughout the day. In the evening you can enjoy a beautiful sunset, sitting on a terrace. The hotel provides you free shuttle buss that will drop you off you wherever you ask. The hotel team is very, very friendly, and always ready to give you an advice or help you with any kind of request. Special thanks to great people who run the hotel, We really didn't wanna leave you guys! The atmosphere in the hotel made our trip unforgettable, and if we go to Boracay again, we will definitely stay in Argonauta without thinking twice!
"Beautiful, relaxing home away from home"
12/11/14 Elisch29 New York City, New York
3 girl friends and I stayed at Argonauta for 3 nights for a fun Boracay vacation last week. When we arrived by ferry into town, we took a van past all the party ruckus and crowded loud streets to a northern part of the island where Argonauta sits separate from the rest. It's down a small back road (I wondered if we were in the right place at first!) but this pretty boutique hotel views open up onto a gorgeous garden with the ocean below down the cliffs. We arrived late at night after multiple travel delays, and the staff was expecting us. The co-owner and his staff (these girls are the best!) met us out front as we pulled up and they handled our bags for us. It was immediately made clear that we were apart of their family now. They asked our names (and remembered!), had a welcome meal prepared since we had missed dinner time, and they shared some ideas with us to maximize our short stay on their beautiful island. The rooms were nicely decorated and spotless clean. Breakfast is offered all day, and includes local dishes as well as an "American" option with sausage and eggs. Always the fruit and juices were fresh and sweet. They got to know us while we stayed there. They gave us towels, beach bags, and bottled water for our beach day trips, and if ever there was a logistics question, they handled it for us. One morning we were rushed to leave and they brought breakfast to our room. Another day when I was sick they brought me medicine. Even when the typhoon was coming, the staff rebooked our flights, coordinated our ferry transfer, and personally escorted us through all the transportation. Seriously, it was above and beyond any kindness I've ever experienced as a traveler! The Argonauta team truly cares about the happiness and satisfaction of it's guests - and I would highly recommend this hotel for anyone's Boracay vacation! Note: They have a free shuttle that can drive you into town. If you want to stay walking distance from the clubs/restaurants, this hotel is not for you. The shuttle takes just 5 mins to get into town, and was very convenient also for checking out other beaches aside from the famous White Beach (e.g. Puka Beach and Diniwid Beach).
"Great pride and joy"
12/03/14 Elena B Brussels, Région De Bruxelles-Capitale, Belgium
Luxury linen won’t assure you a happy holiday and a Michelin star restaurant at hotel premises won't make your stay memorable enough to get an urge to get back... check yourself.. you will be surprised :) What this hotel has realised that what most hotels have not woken up to is that the experience they give their guests. Experience at the Argonauta hotel can't be measured by room size or breakfast plentiful choice, there is so much more to it.. it is about about a totally different level of hotel hospitality and creating latent community of the hotel admirers wanting to come back. Actually we are already planning...

Amazing hotel. They really went above and beyond for us. Really friendly, provided a bus service at all hours to drop us off and collect us from the strip. It was just a beautiful hotel as well. Great views of the beach, comfortable bed and great environment.
