Great location, great staff”
Very convenient. Beach is literally seconds away. If you like people watching, this is the perfect place for you. With full kitchen, we didn't even have to get brewed coffee elsewhere. We had a coffee press in the kitchen. One of the biggest rooms I've stayed in Boracay. Staff were kind and friendly. Will be back...
Needs to train staff”
Room is spacious good for the family, location is great its just between station 1 and 2 very accesible. Downside is most of the staff doesnt even know how to smile. Frontdesk officer was missing in the middle of the day, they even told us that we dont have free breakfast but in fact we paid 600dollars knowing and making sure that breakfast is included. AC is not working well. At least they have a manong guard who knowz how to give good customer service. Not goin back here.
The room is Huge”
Location wise because its beachfront. Feels home away from home. We stayed in maranaw so I think its the biggest room they have. It has two rooms with beachfront view, has a small living room dining table and a small kitchen so you can cook if you are on a budget.
the location ”
the location and the staff are WoooooooooooooW. the location of this hotel is definitely woooow near by every thing. penthouse room is wooooow just they have to renew the A/C in top living room and top bed room . I like every thing. the staff are helpful and smiling every time. thank you again I am one of your customer for ever.
When I stayed here, I literally felt like I have my own beachhouse. The location is very ideal. Super beachfront and located right in the middle of Station 1 and 2. So you are near the fun of Station 2 but far from the noise.
i loved our stay in this apartment - we had the 2 bedroom apartment with living room, dining area and kitchen, the only thing i noticed is that it is so close to the bars , so late at night you can still hear loud music playing, but overall it is very good.
So Worth It”
It was my third time at Boracay but Sandcastle was top notch when it comes to service and cleanliness. My only complain was that we taught we have chosen a beach view balcony only to be brought to a sea side balcony. Their brochures even wrote that Mandaya room is a beach view balcony. Other guests should take note of this. Aside from that, our stay was perfect. They didn't even complain when we asked for four extra towels. :)
Great spot close to the action.”
Wonderful spot right on the beachfront and also close to D Mall and the heart of Boracay food outlets. A bit expensive but the waterfront units let you sit and watch the stream of people walking past and be entertained.
Very spacious and comfortable apartment”
Absolutely loved my stay at Sand Castles. The room was above expectations, so spacious and well fitted out. It was right on the beach front and so just a few steps from the beautiful waters that Boracay has to offer. One thing to keep in mind is that if you want a peaceful beach escape, this might not be the place. At night time there is a 'beach bar' set up right out side the apartments. Music stays pumping to at least midnight. Despite this, Sand Castles is still highly recommended as a quality accommodation option at Boracay.
Right on the Beach”
Hotel hotel within Boracay right on the beach and close to everything you need. Stayed here 4 nights. First night had a back room with beach view. Ask front desk if can get a beach front and they told me had to wait next day for people in beach front to check out. First in first served for beach front. Which i was lucky just had to wait one day/night. Rooms very big nice big bed and ok bathroom. Not sure how many use kitchen but. Would stay here again.
Very good hotel... Nice ambiance”
We literally had breakfast by the beach, the staff are friendly though a little shy. The manager and secretay though are very accomodating.. They even assist us to call our airline going home if our flight is cancelled or not.
fantastic beach front hotel”
we had a fantastic stay at sand castles resort. cosidering that it's beach front made our stay more fun, having less hassle going to and fro the beach in a ny case you left something behind. it's very near the mall so grabbing snacks wont be any problem at all. the hotel staff are nice most specially their security guard who's always there assist us. like if it's raining he would lend us umbrella and whenever we go out he would have the beach chairs and umbrella set up for us, even serve break in the beach which was really awesome. the rooms were also nice, great for friends and families travelling together.
Lovely Suite Hotel”
the hotel was really good. it's location is at the center of boracay, it is near the best dining places and bars for night out fun. the staff were good and accomodating. the only downside that we have experience, is that we have not seen the owners smile nor say hi to it's guest considering that you get to see them everyday at the lobby or it's restaurant. the bed aswell is a bit hard and the faucet in the shower was not working.
Great little hotel with great service”
This is my second time staying at Sand Castles in Boracay and I was even more impressed this time. The service at the front desk was friendly and accommodating (even more so than before). The location is perfect as you are right in the heart of the action. The room was also quite nice. Overall it was a great stay and I look forward to staying there again.
I couldn't ask for more”
The rooms are neat and I will definitely go back to this hotel. Very quiet and the beachfront is very clean compared to other locations. Very friendly staff and the guards are very helpful. I just don't like seeing that one guy who always sleeps at the lobby. Not very pleasing for the guests. It's like he doesn't have a place to stay and wander there.
A small hotel with big service ”
Sand Castles is located at the part of station 1 near station 2. I have stayed in various beach front hotels in Boracay but I would say that their location is one of the best that I have stayed so far since most restaurants, bars & shopping area are located in these two stations. We stayed in the standard room. It is part of a two bedroom apartment so we shared the living, dining and kitchen area with the guests staying on the other room. The standard room is just apt for 2 people. Since me and my friend are petite, the size of the room is not much of a problem.
Perfect for our situation”
I was traveling with a friend and we were looking for a simple room near the beach. Sand castles provided that and then some. I didn't even know I would have access to a kitchen area, but we were lucky enough to share a kitchen/living room with only one other room. The only bad thing was that it was only available for one night. We asked the front desk to see if we could stay any longer, but they were all booked up. The room/bathroom area itself was a little small, but combine that with shared kitchen area and it made for a very comfortable stay. Overall I was impressed with sand castles and I will most likely be staying there again the next time I go back to Boracay.
Not worth it”
Their 5 pax maximum guest policy is misleading as there were five of us but I had to pay for the 5th guest for each night of stay (Php 500/night). Didn’t get much sleep on the first night as the A/C in our room was dripping and the sound it makes is unbearable. Informed the staff the next day only to realize that they knew about the faulty airconditioning all along and yet they still checked us in without ever informing us. And to add insult to our inconvenience, they offered to upgrade us to a badly-maintained room which smelled moldy and is absolutely unsanitary! Did not get my money’s worth and will absolutely discourage anyone from staying at this expensive apartment. Poor customer services & poor maintenance services.
Beachfront. 2 rooms suite. Got small kitchen. ”
It s nearby the beach. We got 2 rooms suite. There is a small kitchen with stove and utensil. As a muslim and it was quite difficult to fine halal food, we ordered lunch n dinner set meal from a local muslim. The leftover dinner we cooked for bfast. The hotel is nearby to everything- massage parlour, beach activities, attraction spot, station 1&3 is a walking distance. A bit far from main road.
Staff are indifferent, you have to tend for your needs. No cable on our first day, vault isn't working. Eventhough the unit is spacious its too dark inside. It needs refurbishing.
