Last March, My husband and I attended a wedding in Boracay where the reception is set on Station 1. I initially looked in Agoda within Station 1 and try to check the cheapest within the range (since we just went to Boracay 2 months ago) that has a good review and a breakfast package. I then discovered Crystal Sands Resort,...

Where to begin… this hotel is abysmal. Firstly, my partner and I had purchased accommodation in mid-March 2015, for one night, the ONLY night we were staying on this beautiful island and they have absolutely ruined our trip and holiday. When we arrived at the hotel, we presented our printout of our voucher (which, by the way said on it...

Because they are going to be re-built into a 200-room hotel sometime mid of this year, I will have to save up and bring my family here before that. My friends and I have come back almost every year for many years to Crystal Sand because of its perfect location in the island, the 24-hour security service, the yummy food,...

What a great place to stay! We stayed at their only deluxe room with a giant balcony overlooking the beach. It was perfect. The location of this place (and our room) made it feel like we were living on the beach, which is why we come to Boracay. The kids really loved this place for the same reasons I loved...

Room: The room was so-so. was quite disappointed with the furnishing. Don't expect a nice room! (2/5) View: we had room 205 and was the beach front view. But if you sit on the balcony chair, your view will be partially blocked by the metal grills. wake up to the sea view. (4/5) Breakfast: For breakfast, they only has either...

This was our second stay at Crystal Sands in two years and we love it as much as we did the first time! Since our last visit a year ago the resort was bought by the Hennen Resort Group and of yet nothing has changed except some personnel who worked there before. This is our kind of place---no flashy just...

We stayed in crystal sand for two nights. We got to boracay at 10am. We tried checking in early but our room was still occupied so we had to wait for the afternoon check in time of 3pm. They took our things for safekeeping so we can start exploring the island and come back to check in. We got back...

You can never go wrong with Crystal Sand Beach Resort Boracay. I originally planned to book Boracay Garden Resort (now Hennan Garden) because it’s one the nice accomodations in station 2. However, it was already fully booked 3 months before our travel date. I have no choice but to look for an alternative. There are a lot of choices for...
