I thought the our visit was great but we were surprised that our current visit is way better. Aside from the clean rooms, friendly service, delicious food choices and affordable room rate, its acoustic entertainment and below zero beer offerings are to die for. Our last day here today but will definitely return soon. #welovebsh.

Awesome service despite the overwhelming number of guests. Need to commend the front desk for being very accommodating and pleasant. Buffet was spot on and the beachside setup was up to par, despite the Station Three location.

Meals came out all different time up to 30 min apart. After 30 min told no stock of last meal. When asked for manager told in meeting and could not come. Over priced for service and food. There are lots of great options to eat for half the price with great service... keep away from this place.

Very nice and clean place. Polite and accommodating staff. Food is quite expensive but very much worth it. The Resort Manager is very hands-on and sees to it that guests are okay. Overall, a nice place to stay in Boracay beach front.

A short flight from Clark to Caticlan airport and 10 minutes boat ride to Boracay. They arranged our pick up and drop off hotel to the airport vice versa.

Shared a family pizza which was really good and decent price, but the best of that evening was the service. A young guy with a name tag that said Jhon Mark treated us and our baby girl with excellent service!

This hotel was supposed to be the splurge hotel of our stay in Boracay, but it wasn't as grand as we expected from the looks of the pictures.
