Location is nice as it's quiet but only a 5minute walk and you are on the beach at the start of station one. You can walk...

This place is perfect. We had our honeymoon here and what an amazing choice!! First of all, the staff is extremely friendly, but not intrusive in the least! They are so polite. It makes you wonder if they ever get frustrated. The location is absolutely perfect. It is not directly on the beach, but just a 3 minute walk from...

The Strand is a gem of a resort for those who want a peaceful and quiet vacation in Boracay. It's away from the crowd and just a 20 minute walk to the heart of Boracay. I would definitely stay at this resort when I visit Boracay in the future.

This place was great in terms of the service we received and the overall condition of the hotel. It was situated at the very end of White Beach so was very quiet and peaceful. However this meant a 20 minute walk on the beach into the busy Station 2 area or a 10 minute 100 peso tuk tuk ride. I...

The Strand is located set back from the beach. It's a 5 min drive to d'Mall (100p) and around 7 mins to Pukka Beach (150p). The is a small beach 2 mins walk away which takes you directly down to the white beach central area 20 mins walk away. The area is really quiet (bar the cockerels across the road)....
