"far from the beachfront"
03/16/14 almaphoopie Toronto, Ontario, Canada
The hotel is very clean and staff is very helpful and friendly. We had a minor problem with the air-conditioning system and they promptly tried to fix the problem. The driveway isn't paved and it was hard to pull our wheeled duffel bag. It is far from the beachfront and you need to put aside your coins to take the tricycle to get to the beach front such as station 2 or D'mall which is always available approximately every 5 minutes. At night, the street isn't well lit. So do have all your activity planned in the morning or until before the sunset.

Road leading to hotel can be muddy during rainy seasons. Maybe not good for those with children or too many belongings. Very nice and clean room, except that there were no chairs or mini coffeetables, except for those where the lampside are placed o.o (Minimalist?) You need to tuck-in all your belongings in one vertical cabinet, which is rather small. The room is clean, no pungent / cigarette smell and the bathroom is tidy too (no molds ands rusts, very important!). As what others have noticed, the white sheets were stained! No particular smell, but still, nobody likes dry stain in their beddings! Reported and the staff was very accomodating and changed it right away. Still, it doesn't look so clean, but at least I'm sure it was freshly tucked. Water pressure is a bit low and water from shower takes time to fully drain. Manageable still. No restaurant available in this hotel although they have menus for "take-out" - meaning you can eat them at your room or somewhere else (but mind you, there was no table or chairs for dining inside the room!). We were too lazy to go out during our first night and ordered from their menu. Very poor taste. I think they ordered it from somewhere/ 3rd-party and have them delivered. Will consider this next time i go back to Boracay because of the friendly rates, cleanliness and accommodating staff!
"This is not a 3 stars hotel"
08/26/13 davidfromnyc new york
I booked this hotel thinking that it was a 3 stars hotel, but when I got to the property I noticed that it was not. The first room I got on the first floor, The bed liners were stain with blood. So I went back to the from desk and asked the lady for another room. The second room the bed was also stain but to me luck not blood. So I decided to stayed there. They also never clean the room while I was there, even though I asked for it. The located is not but if you don't want to be near the action.

Our stay at Casa Alonso started off to a rough start. We'd been travelling all day and were exhausted so when we arrived and they said they didn't have our booking - even though we had confirmed the day before - we were slightly annoyed. They originally told us we couldn't check in until 12 that night which I said was ridiculous and that they would have to organise something else...so they did. They were very apologetic and sweet about the whole business so we really couldn't complain. So we stayed one night in a nearby hotel called Sitio Boracay and they paid for the extra charge on this room. We were tempted to just continue our stay there, however the rooms were incredibly overpriced so the next day we ventured back to Alonso apprehensively. However we were pleasantly surprised. Our room - a standard one on the ground floor- was lovely and really great value for money. It's modern, clean, very comfortable bed, quiet airconditioning...we really couldn't ask for more. I think it was actually good that we got to compare Sitio to Alonso as Sitio is at least double the price but Alonso was just as nice....though Sitio does have a pool. Some other positive things to consider: Don't be put off by the unmade road leading down to the hotel. It does all look a bit random when you get down there, but you'll be happy once you're in the room. The hotel is a 5 minute walk away from the beach. They provide you with beach towels if you ask. We bought a 4 litre bottle of water which they were happy to refill whenever we ran out. Quiet as it's situated away from the main road.

We liked this room a lot. Large, light and with very good beds and a nice bath-room. The only negative thing was a wifi that worked only when it felt for it. And be aware that if you order break-fast Casa Akonso will send for a far from perfect Philippino one. The location is not bad, a few minutes walk from the beach at boatswtation 1.
"Excellent value for money close to the beach"
I stayed in Casa Alonso from 11-16/2/13, it's in the perfect location, off of the main road so you don't get any of the noise or dirt but close enough to the beach. Less than a 5 min walk. The room was clean and modern. The hotel doesn't clean the rooms daily which I liked however I'm sure if you ask they would. The breakfast is a typical Filipino breakfast. I didn't try this instead choosing to eat in some of the local cafes instead. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were also fitted with air-con which is a must in such a humid environment. I would definitely stay here again if visiting boracay.
"5 Minute Walk To Station 1's Beach"
05/18/12 gladysleah Singapore, Singapore
Location - It is 5min walk to the beach of Station 1. The hotel is located near the church (I think it's the only church there). So make sure you know this if you'll take a tricycle from the Jetty Port. Because it is not near the street, we have a quite and peaceful evening. Hotel / Room: It's a one-month old hotel, so expect that the rooms are clean. Our room is clean and everything is in order. Staff: They are accommodating and there is a security guard every night whilst the receptionist is away. I've requested for the hair dryer and they gave it to me even during the wee hours. Breakfast: The receptionist or guard will always ask you and even go to your room to ask what breakfast and what time do you want to have it. We love their 'Tapsilog'. We encountered a slight problem after the trip. My credit card was charged twice, but after reporting it. Casa Alonso and Booking.com solved it immediately. So hats off for them! If I would go back to Boracay, which I'm sure I will, I will not hesitate to book here again.

Местоположение может и не плохое, находится за церковью на 1 станции, но там невозможно находиться! Петухи кричат всегда, в номере не убирались за 3 дня ни разу! Спать не возможно, слышимость 100%! Правда мы жили в соломенном доме, но думаю что в главном корпусе тоже самое. Завтраков нет, кондиционер работает очень громко, вентилятор тоже. Персонал так себе.. Ни за что не вернусь туда.
