                From check-in to check-out, our experience was nothing but fantastic!!!”

                This hotel is one of the very few in Station 3 (the quieter, less crowded area of White Beach) with a kids pool, an adult pool (only 4ft deep though), plus had ocean view rooms available. A nice breakfast was included at their dining area, which also serves lunch and dinners if you want, and they have a bar for some adult beverages at the end of the day. There's plenty to do in the immediate area, so don't be worried that it's not at Station 1 or 2. Plenty of restaurants and bars and gift shops nearby. It took me 3 solid days of reviewing hotels online to find the "right" one, and I think I hit a homerun in deciding on the Boracay Sands. As if the hotel and surrounding area wasn't enough, the hotel staff made it totally complete. Everyone is so accommodating and welcoming. If they don't have what you need, they will help you in finding it or getting it. I already know exactly where we'll be staying the next time we come to this wonderful island.

Hotel is clean & foods are yummy but limited choices. Staffs are friendly & helpful. Transportation pre arranged by the hotel- airport to hotel to airport is practical.

                This hotel is one of the finest I have ever stayed at a very reasonable cost. Staff and location are perfect. This was my 4th trip to Boracay and my 2nd time to stay at the Sands The only reason I can't give it a 5 across the board is the lack of towel racks in the bath. For some strange reason, there is no place to hang a wet towel. Putting that aside, I will be returning to the Sands on my next trip to Boracay.

                Beachfront location, Cleanliness, Accommodating Staffs

                We stayed here for 3 nights. The staffs are really accommodating, breakfast buffet is good, rooms are being cleaned everyday, hotel keycard can be kept in the recep area (if you lost it, you will be charged Php500), swimming pool is small but clean, modern interior, beach beds are avail and it's main selling point -- beachfront location. I thought staying in Station 3 is a bad idea but I was wrong. This area is for those who don't want to get disturbed by the "party" noise at night and I'm one of them. Near meeting point for activities, few steps away from Yellow Cab, The only downside of this hotel is their Wi-Fi connection. We can only connect in the lobby. I think they should look at improving it.

                We went here with the family of my wife, so we booked 3 rooms, we were 7 aduts and 4 kids. The check in was uncomplicated and informal, they even went to get our babybag, which we had forgot at the portin Caticlan. The rooms were nice, just ok, not superb, but praktical. They provided us a babycod without surcharge. For the 3 other kids we only had to pay the breakfast, no additional beds. The location is unbeatable: You go out of the hiótel and you are at the beach. And the beach was just right, not too many vendors, the water and the sand was best for all our kids. So we al loved it, and we will be back here!

                The hotel is located at white beach station 3 which means it is quieter and more peaceful. It is close to the beach and about 10min walk to station 2 D mall. The room is comfortable and big. Hotel staff are friendly. One area of improvement is beach chair. It will be better if the beach chairs are in better quality.

A bar called Nigi Nigi Nu Noos was really good, played 60's rock-n-roll during happy hour and it had decent food as well.

                Tidy, Clean, Modern, and Friendly Beach Hotel”

                The overall design of the hotel was very cool. I liked how they made the pool as the center piece of their hotel. The staff was great, friendly and full of smiles. Being beach front is a big plus.

                Overall, it was a great stay. The staff was friendly and informational. The breakfast buffet was pretty good. The hotel was tidy and bright, which was fitting for the location. Oh, and it was beach front, so they had chairs out right on the beach that was only for the hotel customers. The location of the hotel is close to all the boat companies that offer excursions as well. I never ate at their restaurant, so I can't tell you anything about their food. Negatives- It is in station 3, so it is a 5-10 minute walk to the fun part of the beach, which is at station 1 and 2. If you are not into the party scene, this would be a plus for you. Also, we had a minor bug problem in our room. It was an ant like bug, so it wasn't too big of a deal. We didn't even bother complaining.

                Pleasantly surprised with the quality of the hotel”

                Very good cbeach front, quiet and relaxing ambience but easy to go to where the action is, substantial breakfast buffet.

                I love Boracay for its sand, the retaurants and bars. But I hate crowds and people traffic. I've been choosing hotels at Station 3 because of this. There's less foot traffic, and you can walk to or commute to Station 1 for night time action. I usually stay in high end hotels at Station 3, where beachfront privacy is guaranteed. But this trip was short and with friends with tight budgets, so I booked Sands because it was much cheaper. I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of the hotel, the clean and elegantly understated beach front, more romantic than most similarly priced hotels, and the quality of the rooms. In summary, it s a quiet romantic hotel which has managed to be just that in the middle of action packed boracay. But if you want to be in the middle of the action, choose a hotel in Station 1.

                Nice modern hotel in Boracay station 3 but noisy”

                Location, modern, clean

                Hotel was clean and modern looking. Pool was small but a nice touch to cool off. However the way which the hotel was designed, it echoes when tours assemble in the lobby for long periods it becomes irritatingly noisy. Also expect to pay for everything like beach towels.

                Awesome beach, attentive staff”

                Beachfront location, has pool, breakfast, clean rooms

                Beach front location so you just have to go out and there's the beach. The hotel has some lounge chairs outside exclusive for guests. Station 3 is a bit of a walk from where the bars/D'Mall is (station 2/1), but there are also other places to eat here nearby. The beach is less crowded, although there is a boat station nearby so there are a lot of bancas/boats nearby, but there's a cordoned off area for swimming. During summer, the water is clearer here vs station 2. Hotel had free wifi (ask for the password), there is variety in the breakfast buffet, they provide beach towels and the staff are attentive. If you're looking for a comfy 4-star hotel in Boracay in the mid price range, would recommend this.

                Clean hotel with cute pool and lovely rooms

                Check in was simple and staff was friendly. Hotel exceeded my expectations. It was nice and lovely rite by the beach. Our room was huge with a balcony and lounge chairs facing the beach. Bed was big and comfy and the toilet was really clean and nice. Room was way better than some 4-5 star hotels I've stayed in before. Breakfast is sufficent but basic. Location was somewhere in the middle of station 3. So walking to Dmall needs bout 10-15 min stroll.

                New boutique hotel ”

                Very near Station 3, close to the beach

                The hotel is color-themed and each room is unique. The rooms are very spacious, similar to a living room, bed room and bath room all rolled into one. The ambiance of the room is very warm and country-like. The furnishings are pretty new and definitely worth the stay. In terms of decor and furnishing, it is indeed refreshing and nice. The hotel owner is warm and friendly too. The only drawback is that the hotel has got no in-house restaurants. Just next door to the hotel, there is a tiny restaurant which serves decent food at a reasonable price though. In terms of proximity to convenience shops, it is within walking distance. Located close to where the locals are staying, you can definitely get a different experience from those hotels located at Station 1 and 2 where all the tourists are.

                Superb hotel choice in Boracay Station 3”

                Fantastic indoor pool at night, location was right on the beach!

                absolutely the best in station 3. away from noisy station 2, but if you are a party lover, boracay sands is just a few steps away. booking is quick and no hassle. they've got everything inside their well appointed room, including plasma tv, ipod docking radio, and a safety box. beds are very comfy and big enough for two. you would love their indoor pool especially at night after enjoying water activities at the beach. surrounding is beautifully designed. its a great location in boracay if you want to relax in a super quiet ambience. fewer people and vendors around, so you can have more privacy in their beachfront. breakfast buffet was delicious; got plenty of choices. staff were friendly. i would stay here again on our next visit. one downside of this hotel, though,is the long walk from the main road. notify the hotel in advance to assist you when you arrive.

                Great view, peaceful, wonderful for couples

                The hotel has a great view of White Beach. The hotel has nice and clean rooms. Just a short walk to Station 2. Could have been better if the ants issue could be rectified (I guess they are part of the package everywhere in Boracay). Overall, it was a wonderful stay. Receptionist was very polite and helpful.
