Boracay Accommodations

Saturday, April 13, 2013

There are plenty of accommodations in Boracay to choose from and if you are looking for value for money in a beachfront setting, check my recommendations below.

In the several times I've visited Boracay, I've never used the same accommodations twice because there's always something new to discover in this island paradise. I've tried Eriko's Guesthouse (I just don't like the small unlighted alleyway you have to pass through before getting there), Villa Simprosa Guesthouse (its a compound with several rooms but the area can really get chaotic at times), Mito's Place (they used to be at the beachfront but I think they sold their front area to Starbucks and Gerry's Grill that now occupy their front space) and Alta Vista de Boracay ( a luxury resort I wouldn't mind staying again even if its not located at the White Beach but only if I can avail the 50% discount I got before)

But I think I've found my "HG" when we speak of value for money. I'm rounding up my top 2 choices of  Budget Friendly Accommodations in Boracay that pass my requirement of a beachfront location with a room and a veranda that offers an unobstructed view of the ocean and within walking distance to familiar places of interest.

1. LA FIESTA RESORT

LA FIESTA Resort Boracay

Topping my list is LA FIESTA RESORT. It's a small resort with a very homey atmosphere. Its location is directly on the White Beach, Station 1 and only a few meters away from D'Mall and some restaurants. Rooms have balconies that are facing the beach, perfect for sunset watching and people watching or just lounging while reading a book or sipping a drink. It's perfectly located close to all amenities.

Standard room rates range from 1,500 pesos to 4,000 pesos depending on the season and the number of guests.  (Just some tip, try to haggle, we were able to get 2 rooms, one on the ground and on the 2nd floor, sleeps 4 pax each for just 2000 pesos per room.)

For reservations :
(036) 288-4234 (landline)
0919-861-0886 (mobile)
Look for Ms. Armie..

2. CASA FIESTA

Casa Fiesta Boracay


























CASA FIESTA RESORT just like LA FIESTA is similarly situated at a beachfront location at White Beach Station 1, offering the same basic amenities, an awesome sea view and same price points. I believe owners of both resorts are relatives. They are actually just a few blocks apart.

It would be perfect if you can book the room with the veranda overlooking the ocean, I think one of it is room 205. But between Casa Fiesta and La Fiesta, although the latter is needing some renovations, I still felt a more relaxed ambiance at La Fiesta. But you definitely won't go wrong with both budget friendly accommodations.

For inquiries and reservations: 
call/txt at (036) 288-3898
0919-246-6522 Look for Josie..

    2. Hi between erikos and la fiesta...whicho of them has more cozy or nicer room?

      Delete
    3. rooms are pretty much the same, but I didn't like erikos coz their rooms are not on the beach front and you need to walk like 15 meters before you see the beach shore unlike la fiesta which offers unobstructed view of the beach.
