Our family had a great time. The staff are all friendly and very accommodating. The management upgraded our standard room to deluxe with no extras cost because apparently the room that we supposed to have is under maintenance. They served cocktails and beers at a very low price which me and my husband have enjoyed. It's beach front location is... More

It's location on the beachfront at Station 3 is good. But many of the hotel's facilities are broken. The floor drain on our bathroom was broken, some window locks are broken, no exhaust fans in the bathroom. Bathroom has a weird smell too.

Arwana is far far away from the busy Station 2, if you want to have a peaceful time by the beach, this is the place to be. The hotel is few meters away from the seashore. Expect a kilometer walk or more if you want to explore Station 2 and the remainder of White Beach. What we like most is... More

Indeed, my stay at Arwana Hotel Boracay last August was again very relaxing and memorable. It is the budget hotel and sister company of Estacio Uno Lifestyle Resort and Boracay Uptown, but I keep on staying here because of value for money and service in a beachfront property! What I like most here is their high-speed wifi connection at the... More

We arrived in Boracay around midnight and as soon as we checked in at Arwana Hotel, the facade area was so dimly lit and we could hardly see the receptionist at the counter.
