The hotel was nice, staff are all very friendly. I was expecting a little bit more high-end, but for the price it wasn't bad at all. I wasn't a big fan of the location though. Since I haven't been to Boracay before booking, I wasn't familiar of the different stations. The location was busy and surrounded by vendors. The beach front wasn't exclusive […] to the hotel but it wasn't too bad, wasn't too busy. Over-all, the hotel and staff was nice, I just wish the location wasn't too busy.

"Nice hotel in the middle of the party zone"
Nice hotel with very attentive staff and comfortable rooms. Not really what I was looking for, the beach is very loud and crowded. That said had a wonderful time. Avoid booking activities at the hotel though, our operator was terrible we ended up canceling and booking privately.Genuine Expedia guest review
The hotel is located perfectly at station 2 with all bars, restaurants, shops etc within walking distance. The rooms are spacious and clean and the staff very helpful and friendly. Would recommend to all categories of people including families.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Near all the action!"
Strategically located on the beach at station two. Nice infinity pool with a good view of the sea. Beside D'Mall and walking distance to station 1 and 3. Many food options nearby. However do take note that due to its location on the beach, live band can play right up to midnight. Sound is audible in the room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Amazing experience close to beach...overall great beach view, things to do and UBEGenuine Expedia guest review
Good location n the hotel staff very friendly n helpful:)will definately book again and recommend to my friends.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Only good thing is the location"
Room is clean as hotel is new but layout of the room I feel is too big and doesnt make good use of the space. I rather have a smaller and well furnish room. Location is fantastic as it is next to D'Mall. Breakfast is lousy. After trying it once the first day I chose to eat outside at my own cost.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent, great staff"
we spend 8 night during the big tifon yolanda and we were protected. The hotel is new and very nice, rooms are clean and the staff is very nice! The pool excellent l. Thanks Boracay Uptown to make our hollidays unforgetable!! I recomend this hotel!!Genuine Expedia guest review
Brand new hotel, only been open 1 month when I stayed. Great location, right in the centre, close to D'Mall with plenty of restaurants and nightlife close by. Hotel was very clean, room was very nice, great view over the pool and over the beach and sea. Service was excellent throughout our 5 night stay including the arrival where we were greated with […] a cold towel and a drink. Breakfast is fairly limited especially for westerners although that seems to be the case throughout this area of the world in general, but it was offered to us from 7am until 11pm, just incase we needed a long sleep in. We couldn't have asked for more, looking forward to visiting again in the future. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

훌륭한 위치에서 보라카이 여행을 즐겁게 할 수 있었습니다~Genuine Hotels.com guest review
위치는 비치 바로 앞이라 좋은데 트라이시클을 타기엔 많이 걸어야 해요.. 디몰까지 나가서 타야 해서 캐리어 끌고 가기엔 조금 힘들 수도 있어요. 디몰바로 옆에 있어 위치는 좋아요. 앞에 식당이 있지만 3층에서는 소리가 거의 안들려서 시끄럽진 않았어요..Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"편리한 위치, 친절한 서비스, 청결한 관리 상태"
전체적으로 매우 만족했습니다. 북적거리고 시끄러울까봐 걱정했던 방문 전과 달리, 디몰을 가로질러가서 바로 왼쪽에 있는 호텔을 확인한후 들어가자마자 웰컴드링크와 조개목걸이를 받고 호텔의 관리상태를 확인하는 순간 대만족! ㅋㅋㅋ직원들도 다들 너무 친절하고, 항상 미소를 머금고 있습니다. 이 호텔에 묵으며, 어디를 가더라도 딱 번화가의 가장중심에 있는 호텔에 묵는게 얼마나 편한지..이번에 깨달았네요. 수영장관리도 아주 잘되어있어서,(수질도 나쁘지않아요) 휴양목적으로도 나쁘진...않겠지만, 스테이션2의 초중심지니 역시 휴양보단 관광목적이겠네요! 조식은 다양하진않았지만 맛이괜찮았고...다시 방문하고 싶어요.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
직원들의 친절함과 신관이라 그런지 넓고 깨끗했는데요, 위치 때문에 선택했는데..밤마다 바로 앞에 클럽을 운영해서 새벽까지 엄청 시끄럽습니다. 디몰이랑 가까워서 좋긴했는데, 다음엔 가고 싶지 않네요 ^^; 그리고 이 사이트에선 안나왓는데 저희가 갔던 기간에 픽업 서비스가 포함 되었더라구요. 다른데서 픽업 서비스 신청해서 완전 고생해서 갔는데 호텔가서 알았습니다. -_- 뭐 갈때는 편하게 갔네요. 해변가 바로 앞이라고 좋은것도 아니네요.. ㅎㅎGenuine Hotels.com guest review

먼저 직원분들께서 너무 너무 친절합니다! 여자 넷이 헝클어트린 방을 매번 깨끗히 청소도 해주셨구요 매일 똑같은 조식이 나와서 물리기도 했지만..달걀 스크렘블은 너무 맛났어요!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"다음에 가도 꼭 묵고싶은 호텔"
우선 위치가 정말 좋아요~ 보라카이 중심인 디몰 바로옆이고 깨끗한 시설도 정말 맘에들었어요~ 다만 아침밥이 별로 맛있진 않았지만 식사제공시간이 12시까지인 것도 좋은점이었어요~Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"편리한 위치, 최고의 서비스"
리젠시에서 4박을 묵고 이곳으로 옮겼습니다.체크인할때부터 모든 서비스는 더이상 바랄것이 없을만큼 훌륭했습니다.다음에 또 보라카이를 간다면 저는 무조검 이곳으로 다시 예약할겁니다Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Hotel except one thing..."
It was a great hotel except one thing. Convenient location. It is located in station2 and the white beach is right ahead. Staff was very kind and helpful. The only disadvantage was street noise at night. There were many restraurant which played music and had live band so it was very noisy. This cannot be avoidable if you choose any hotel near the white […] beach. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

06/25/14 Robert H Osan, South Korea
Decided to take a family vacation to Boracay from Korea and decided on Uptown Boracay and don't regret it at all. Location was perfect and our room (not a beach view) was great. Room was quiet even with the band and music playing each night outside. Room was clean and staff was great. I would have liked a little more than beer and Tandquay (sp) at the pool bar but the two guys working there were very nice. The housekeeping staff was great as well as the lobby staff. I only have two gripes and they are small. First, I wasn't expecting laundry service to take 2 days (I'm used to same day return) but it was cheap and they did a good job. Second, hot water wasn't very common. When we said something they would come up and adjust/fix a valve under our bathroom sink but it still wasn't hot for long. Only an issue when I was trying to shave really because we spent most of the time in the pool and would rinse off at the pool when done. I am sure the wife would have liked a little more hot water so she could wash her hair better. In reality though, the shower wasn't a concern and we knew hot water was an issue on the entire island. Found good rates booking excursions through the resort vice trying to have one of the commissioners help and they did great. Great Job Uptown Boracay!
"Basic but well-situated, friendly staff"
06/20/14 VivekH Mumbai (Bombay), India
Pretty basic, but clean and very well-located, bang on the beach and two minutes from the picturesque D'Mart Mall (more a tourist village than a traditional mall). Rooms were large, well air-conditioned (critical!) and clean; and the loo had a jet spray which is the true mark of civilisation. Strange layout though, with the wash basin in the bedroom, the loo on one side and the shower stall on the other. Good reggae house band performed at the hotel beachfront while we were there. Friendly staff: there was no hot water in our room (not critical given the weather, but still) and they couldn't fix it until the third attempt. But they were quick to respond to all the complaints. Very nice roof top infinity pool, perfect for non-swimmers!
"A nice hotel for families"
06/13/14 Hiro C Rancho Cucamonga, California
This hotel was booked for us by our friend. We were not expecting much since the previous hotel we were at was marginal at best. This hotel is a pleasant surprise. The staff is very friendly and fast. The rooms are pleasing and clean. We chose station 2 since this will be the first time our teenager is visiting the island. We wanted him to be in the thick of it. I prefer Station 1 or 3 due to less foot traffic. This is an excellent hotel if you want to stay in Boracay (station 2).
"clean, modern hotel with the perfect location"
05/30/14 Helen R Calgary, Canada
My family of 4 stayed at the Boracay Uptown from Apr 26 - May 1 2014. We stayed in a room on the 3rd floor. The room was clean, nicely furnished, bright colors, modern and comfortable. We were stalked with bottled water everday. Huge shower and comfy beds. A/C was great and very much appreciated after a long hot day on the beach. The location of the hotel is absolutely perfect. Station 2 right in the middle of the beach. Upon check in we were greeted with friendly smiles, excellent customer service and even a welcome drink and necklace made of shells. Our luggages were brought to our room and when he dropped off our bags, he made sure to tell us everything we needed to know about our room: how to work our remote control A/C, how to operate the safe, the lights and where to find towels for the pool etc. As soon as we got there we immediately changed into our swim suits and headed down to the beach just an elevator ride away! Sand is white, clean, cool and soft as flour. Water was clear and turquoise. It was also very still and didn't get deep until far away from shore so you can easily wade in the shallow ends with no worries (for people who aren't strong swimmers like me!). Water was so clear you could see the fish coming to check out your feet! There was an attendant who got as as many lounge chairs and towels as we needed. He also made sure no one took our chairs/towels while we were in the water. We also noticed that he made sure to ask people if they were staying at the Boracay Uptown before getting them chairs. I thought that was a nice touch since a lot of other places let anyone take up the best spots infront of hotels they weren't even staying at. We made sure to give the attendant a nice tip. He deserved it for sure. Our stay included a free breakfast buffet every morning. This was the only disappointing thing about our stay at Boracay Uptown. The buffet mainly consisted of Filipino food and not very good Filipino food either (I should know...I'm Filipino and absolutely love Filipino food/breakfast). There was fresh fruit, eggs, bread and they would usually alternate the type of meat. One morning there was bacon, another day they had vienna sausage. I felt that the food could've been better. Also the layout of the restaurant was horrible. It was much too small and there was a very awkard decorative wall right in the middle of the restaurant which made it very difficult to maneuver your way around the wall and buffet table to get your food. If the wall is not a support wall, I would suggest taking that wall down to open up the space a bit. There was plenty of seating/tables outside the restaurant however it is quite hot and a nuisance to have to go in and out to get your food. At least the inside of the restaurant had A/C. They should extend the restaurant and make it bigger even if it means taking up room outside. The best part about the hotel besides it's location is the pool!! It is located on the roof right off the 3rd floor which was perfect since our room was just a few steps away! Pool area was very clean and had a great view of the beach and water below. Pool was a good size with lots of tables and chairs and a couple lounge beds with shade. You can also order food and drink right there at the swim up bar. The pool rarely got used while we were there so we even had our own private pool party there one night. We ordered fruit shakes and the fresh seafod that was cooked to your liking. We got our prawns grilled. The prawns were HUGE! Pool is open until 10pm so you can go for a night swim. Perfection. We had a blast in the pool. Wifi is also available there if you want to check your email, facebook, twitter etc poolside. There were lots of restaurants/food stalls on site including a Sbarro Pizza. Service was really slow there though. Our favorite food stall was the belgium waffle one. Delicious snack! There is also a coffe shop on site and a place to grab a frozen blended drink with our without alcohol!! Perfect for those hot Boracay days in the sun. There was also a Filipino restaurant, a stall where you can get the most yummy dumplings and another stall that served noodles. All for very inexpensive. Overall we had an amazing stay and would definitely stay there again. I highly recommend this hotel because of it's central location on the beach...you're in the middle of it all, it's cleanliness, the friendly staff, the pool and the food available right in the lobby. It's unfortunate that someone had a bad experience according to one of the bad reviews because our stay was nothing short of amazing. Thank you Boracay Uptown!!

Never again! Unfriendly and incompetent reception-staff. I booked the Suite for me and was treated from the first moment like a criminal. Stayed in hundreds hotels but never had such a worse experience and a bad welcome! The room is told to be modern and fancy, for me the atmosphere is just cold (just to let you know: the normal rooms don’t have windows, they face to the floor and have glass panels so you feel like an animal in a zoo). The room was not really clean and the shower had no hot water (temperature was at the border to warm and I told them three times, but nothing happened). There is noise during the whole night and breakfast is very poor and gross. Conclusion: Never again!!!!
"Great hotel in Station 2"
05/19/14 Roy Jasper A
Location: The hotel's location is near D'Mall, so all the restaurants, groceries and ATM's are fairly just few walks away. Room: We booked the premier room for my family. (I have a toddler).The room was clean and everything is working well except for the wifi. They said that you can access their wifi on every room, but you're better off with your mobile data since the connection is horrible. The water in the room is strong, so removing the sand from your clothes should be easy enough. The aircon is cool enough to withstand the heat in Boracay. so our family slept well during the night. We were not bothered by the noise outside even though our room was in front of the hotel. Staff: This is where the hotel shines through, their staff is very accommodating. Upon arrival, they gave us a cold towel and a drink. They're always their to assist and to keep us comfortable in our stay. They also gave us extra pillows and towels free of charge. The staff is trained well enough for us to enjoy. Food: Breakfast is served in Dulcinea which is located on the ground floor of the hotel. The food was average, so the typical hotdog, chorizo and ham are served daily. Not much variation but it can start your day with satisfied stomach.The good thing is you're near a lot of great restaurants so finding the spot to chow down is easy. Amenities: The infinity pool is on the 3rd floor of the hotel. It's not that big, I think it's 5ft deep with mini-bar at the center of it. My toddler enjoyed it best during night time since you get a clear view of the outside of the hotel from the top. So you can watch the fire dancers from neighboring restaurants. Verdict: If you want to stay in Station 2, then I highly recommend Boracay Uptown. The accessibility of the stores is a big factor plus their helpful staff. This hotel can give you the rest you deserve after a day of beach activities.
"Perfect location, very accessible"
05/13/14 Tricia G Quezon City, Philippines
I love the colorful concept of the hotel! This hotel was just built October of last year so this is a fairly new hotel. Close to everything, the beach, the bars, the famous D'mall of Boracay, everything! I especially love the toiletries, so complete! Based on my experience with hotels in the Philippines, they scrimp on toiletries but this hotel in the 3 days we stayed here never missed to make sure that we will not ask for more soaps, toothbrushes, etc. Traveler with small kids will love it here because of the pool, just steps away from the rooms. People who will travel with friends will also love this hotel because they are really close to bars and all the happenings on the beach. It will be really easy for them to go back to their hotel rooms when they are drunk! Very efficient staff. They coordinated well with the shuttle of the hotel we were transferring to. They really made sure that the shuttle gets to pick us up.
"The Best of Boracay Station 2"
05/09/14 Gelaine M Quezon City, Philippines
I am person who rarely travels but when I do, I always want to get the most relaxing, memorable, comfortable and wonderful vacation I deserved. Im 30 and this was my first time to go to Boracay (Geezzz!), and this is extra special because Im with the whole family (my parents, sibling and 1yo daughter). Upon thorough researched about accommodations in Boracay, I kept my fingers crossed in booking Boracay Uptown. I wish to get the best hotel as I was with 2 nearly Senior Citizen and 1 toddler! Thank God my expectations really exceeded upon entering this hotel! Its conveniently located at the Beachfront, and just few walks to D Mall. They gave us cold lemon drinks and put Lei necklaces on us as welcome presents. My mom and dad really feels like royals! Haha! My toddler on the other hand enjoys the lobby as she feels like she's in a playground, the area has bright colors with green lush carpet. For me, its very relaxing to the eye specially for children. Our room is located on the 3rd Floor, and we got two twin beds (Premier Suite) which is large enough for us. Very clean, vibrant and fresh! The room was packed with almost all we need! soaps, lotions, bathrobes, driers, etc. And if you request for more, they'll give it! What I most like about it was, our room is just adjacent to their Infinity Pool! My kid and parents really enjoyed it specially for our noon and evening splash! I have more good to say about this hotel, and will surely recommend it to all moms out there who has toddlers!

We were picked up by their van at the Caticlan airport. We were brought to a private port for a private ferry ride to Boracay. Upon docking we were again picked up by their private van. We felt like we were VIPs. Upon arriving at the hotel we were given yummy welcome drinks, cold towels to freshen us up and necklaces made of shells. The staff at the Reception were all very nice and accommodating. Special thanks to Ellen. We stayed at two quad rooms. They were roomy and brightly lit. There was no window or view, however, the pool was on the same floor so that made up for the lack of window. Overall, Uptown is a good hotel with excellent staff.
"A good beachfront hotel"
04/18/14 Anna A Singapore
This hotel is simply amazing given that its a beach front hotel. I like the location of the hotel, very near to all the buzz. A stunning view from the pool. You should book a room with a pool view else your window will only be facing a wall. If you're a party go-er, you are at advantage if you pick this hotel,just a 3min walk to epic(a club). The hotel also have a band performing almost everyday till 1am. And some performance as well on random nights. The only critique I would make is the breakfast choice, very limited. Other than that ,this is a hotel I would definitely recommend.
