    Great location”

    This hotel is right on the beach and in the perfect spot in station 3 if you prefer the quieter area. The breakfast was average, the eggs were so salty most mornings they were almost inedible and the toast was floppy bread. There were some issues with noise and people in the dive shops being noisy as well as people coming back from a late night out being noisy at crazy hours in the mornings. The room is very small and nowhere to put you suitcase and clothes. Aircon was the best we have come across in hotels in 4 months, works really well and really quiet. I would recommend staying here.

    Quiet. Clean. Amazing Staff

    Our stay was great. the room is what you would expect for a budget beach front hotel. the room was clean. although the room was a bit warm in the afternoons, the air conditioner needs to be replaced i think, overall the room was ok. the staff was great. they gave us extra pillows with no charged. upgraded us to a superior room even though we paid for a standard room only. all the staff was accommodating to our requests.

    Affordable, Okay beachfront”

    Affordable, Free breakfast, Free dinner, Free wifi, Okay beachfront

    Pros: Affordable, Free breakfast, free dinner, free wifi. The restaurant faces the beach, you can sit in the chairs facing the beach and just relax or order some drinks. Cons: It's a bit far from where the action is. The location is in station 3, far from D'Talipapa or even the tourist center, but you can walk to it. Initially we couldn't find the resort as we were expecting it to be nearer station 2/3. However, the area is quiet and it's actually a good location to chill and relax. There are sari-sari stores nearby. The rooms are not beachfront, so don't expect beach views. Rooms are basic and clean -- bathroom was more spacious than I expected, the rooms just had enough space for 1 queen/double bed + TV + some shelves to put your stuff. Yes there may be some other hotels with the same price with a better location and bigger room space (like 2 double beds, so more people can fit in). However, for our purposes, with only 2 adults to fit in one room, the free breakfast and free dinner made staying worth it for the money.

    Staff was amazing! Quiet area of white beach. Good breakfast.

    We stayed for 5 days and enjoyed the location, right on white beach. The staff was great from the start taking our bags to the room and offering us a welcome drink. Our room was very basic, but clean. Each morning we enjoyed some unique breakfast choices and then stepped out on to the beach. There are some nice restaurants around the Arwana away from the noise of Dmall. Nono, one of the staff members, even made a special trip to the mainland to buy a guitar for me. Nice stay for a budget hotel!

    thanks to the very accommodating staff of Arwana Hotel. If you're looking for a place to stay in Boracay, I highly recommend this budget hotel. It's located at the peaceful beachfront of station 3. It's my fourth time in Boracay and I say this is one of the best budget hotel in the area. Thanks to Ms. Juliet and Sheen. Keep it up!

    Arwana is located at Station #3 Boracay Beach. It is a small hotel but is directly beachfront. Rooms are small but very clean and comfortable - the room we occupied had the quietest aircon that I have ever encountered in a hotel. Staff are super attentive. The included breakfast is nothing to write home about - but it's enough to get you started for the day.

    below my expectation on the room, linen looks old and yellowish instead of white, only provide thin bed linen as quilt for a aircond room. Aircond is old and noisy, room with sand and smelly. At the time i step in to this room, i was decided to rent another hotel but in the end, we have to stay back as already paid. It is much different from the picture. Breakfast is only toast and eggs.
