We stayed in Arwana Hotel during my daughter's birthday celebration in Boracay. The pros: It's located in a more quiet part of Boracay (Station 3 to be specific) and is beach-front. Perfect for families! The rooms are quite comfortable too and very affordable. The cons: It's super far from restaurants. It has its own restaurant in the ground floor, but... More

Situated right on the beach, at boat station 3, on the more relaxed part of White Beach is hotel is a very good choice when it comes to price, service and locations. It's my favourite place to stay at Boracay.

The Arwana is a great place to stay. It is right on the beach at Station 3 - so slightly less commercial than the other stations - this I thing was a major plus factor. If you want the crowds, is a short walk up a palm lined path. Back to the hotel, the rooms are tiny, not a lot... More
