"Put me here, soothe me, spoil me with colors, taste, and those perfectly perched umbrella chairs. Thoughts of the world at large - kindly move aside. You're blocking my sun" Those were my exact thoughts on reaching Boracay Island. I felt the new year was high time for a bright beam of optimism and, of course a little vacation, where else but on my favorite beach in the world. But this time around, I was looking for true bliss, my own nirvana, away from the maddening crowd?
When it comes to hotels, smaller is often better. And on Boracay's posh north beach, it doesn't get much smaller (or better) than the MR Holidays Hotel. From the moment I arrived, I was greeted by friendly smiles and familiar faces. This 14 room resort is as posh as any big name resort (think cable TVs, Wi-Fi and soft-as-silk sheets). But it is as comfortable as your best friend's beach house. Every room here is tastefully designed to give guest a relaxing sanctuary to recharge and rejuvenate after a long day at the beach. Some guest may not just leave their rooms at all. That's a shame since the hotel offers the best beachfront and stunning ocean views in the island. But that wasn't the only thing I came here for. So to enjoy the community spirit, I hanged out in the outdoor common areas, borrowed a beach chair and headed down to the powdery white sand to feel (or just admire) the wonderful beach (and the lovely people). I love MR Holidays because everything about this hotel reflects the true filipino culture of hospitality and friendly service. The beauty of a hotel this small is that at the end of the trip, I truly felt I was staying with friends.
Kudos to the best hotel staff in the island!
