May usually is a busy month in Boracay with so many events like La Boracay. Amihan-Home is a little secluded place actually we got lost at first cause they dont have a noticeable sign. The place was cozy and has a spa. If you dont mind its a little steep and the walking. I think they are still improving the place but the room was big and clean.

Its ok but could improve
Firstly if you have walking or heart issues avoid the walk up from the road is so steep. So you should avoid. Its not a hotel but more a guest house. You are expected to remove your shoes whilst u r on the property.Also there is a notice in bathroom asking that you dont washout clothes in your room because it causes a hot water shortage. This is nonsense as it is an electric shower. Only one litre bottle of water supplied if you want any drinking wated you have to pay. The room quite big with a balcony. I had holes in my sheets . I like to watch TV in my room plenty of channels but the TV s are CRT . The chairs are not comfortable. No fridge. Now the breakfast its cooked to order and served in your room . I was staying 4 nights i ordered 2 eggs over easy bacon toast. 3 times the breakfast served tepid the eggs first day sunny side up the next two days turned over rock hard the toast was thick cut bread that was toasted 10 seconds. I could not face on the forth day. Also pet dogs are on the premises and one dog pepsi roams around the whole house and started trying to bite me. In all it was not a bad place to stay. I would say you can find better hotels for the same or less money. I did not like boracay and not go back again . Its a rip off place in my opinion. Its the most expensive place ive visited in Philippines. Even the fast food cost more here. I have been to the Philippines 16 times but this is my first and last trip to boracay.

Owner ruined our stay!
This review has been something I've wanted to write for a long time but did not have a chance earlier.. so here we go. Let me start my rant by saying that it is extremely sad that when you are on a beautiful island like Boracay on a 10 day holiday you start to wait for the day you leave- thanks to the owner of the hotel you are staying. Okay let's get the positives out first: the location is good and rooms are large. It's cheap. Employees are helpful.That's pretty much it. It's almost impossible to sleep there- there's constant banging of doors, music and partying from the beach (even though the hotel is not on the beach) and hotel lobby itself. The dogs staying at the hotel premises are barking and people are ringing the doorbell. You can hear all this in the rooms. But that's nothing compared to the unprofessional owner of the hotel. I have never ever in my life felt so uncomfortable staying in a hotel (and I've stayed in hundreds) than I did here when we stayed for 9 nights. The hotel manager/ owner Grace was nice when we first arrived -she told us that we will stay in the room number 2 for few nights and then she will move us to the rooftop room which according to her was the best room of the hotel. We never asked for it but it seemed like a nice gesture and we were happy about that. We got in our room and we liked it; it was spacious, with a large bed (actually 1 double and one smaller one) and the balcony was nice too. The bathroom on the otherhand was small, smelled damp and mouldy and was rundown (with hot water coming from the shower only every now and then) and we noticed that the bathroom floor was soaking wet. We just thought that maybe it didn't have time to dry out after cleaning so we just left it. But the night when I had to use the toilet the bathroom was already "flooding" so we put some towels on the floor to dry it up before we told the staff in the morning that there might be some pipe etc leaking. They said they would fix it and so they did. So no problems with that. The employees of the hotel were nice and helpful. The internet is ridiculously slow and the connection is the worst; like you actually can connect to it 5 minutes per day and if somebody does it at the same time as you- game over. I asked about it and once again the staff was helpful to try to fix it (restart the modem) except the owner Grace. To be honest, we till this day do not know what her problem was. She gave us dirty looks starting from the second day and every time we asked something (like towels, that the cleaners forgot to bring to our room after they took the old ones on 3 different days) she would roll her eyes at us and once she even said in a very rude voice "what do you need now?". We found this extremely offending, concidering that by this time the only things we had asked them for was the towel they did not leave in our room, to look if there's a pipe leaking in our bathroom since we are ankle deep in water while sitting on the toilet and asked about the internet connection that was so bad we could not even connect to it. Do I need to mention that the rooftop room never happened? We figured that out on day 4 as she had been giving those dirty looks for days at this point and had still not mentioned anything about moving rooms, but decided to wait as it was never our idea to move in the biggest and best room anyway.. On the 7th day of our stay it was raining cats and dogs and we stayed the whole day at the hotel and thought that we could as well ask about moving rooms; at least we would have time to move. Well turns out the lady was not very happy about the question and blamed us for being too late about it and that she had given the room for somebody else already; apparently she had been waiting for us everyday and we were always gone.. Haha what a liar- we saw her every day in the morning when we went to beach, every afternoon when we came from the beach and every single evening we would discuss with her about the breakfast for the following day. She even had time to try to sell her overpriced special massage deal to us one evening and was clearly offended when we kindly turned the offer down due to our sunburned backs. Until the day we asked about the room we were able to get eggs, fruitsalad and fruitjuice from the breakfast menu due my allergies to gluten and milk and my fiance got bacon and bread on top of that. It was part of their "continental" breakfast from which we could not eat everything due to allergies. She had made the suggestion to modify the "continental" choise in order for us to be able to eat it- we on the other hand are used to buying fruit etc so we are not depending on hotel breakfasts that do often rely on bread etc so we were happy about the possibility to eat at the hotel. Well all of the sudden on the evening of the day we asked about the room change the breakfast we had had for 8 days was no longer a possibility and she told us we would have to take their set menu with bread - or nothing. Coincidence? I honestly do not know what the owners problem with us was but I felt very uncomfortable staying at her hotel. Reading the older reviews others have had problems with the owner too. It was bothering me the whole time we stayed there and I must admit if Boracay and this hotel would have been the only stop of our 3 month holiday she would have ruined my holiday with her attitude. Luckily we had many other places to stay with good customer service and great memories, but this hotel I can't and will never recommed to anyone. Do me a favour and don't ruin your holiday. It's a cheap place to stay but not worth the stress the owner will give you; look past the hypocrite smile- you will never find a hotel owner with as bad attitude as her. Like some others I have no idea how this place has such good reviews. You would think that if you own a hotel with only a few rooms you would make every guest count but that's clearly not the case here.. You know it's not a place worth staying if you are on this truly beautiful island with the best beaches in the world and mid holiday you already count the days you can leave because you feel so uncomfortable. We should have changed the hotel. Staying here ruined our stay on Boracay- please don't ruin yours.

Quaint & Convenient!
If you're on a budget and want to experience living in a somewhat local, quaint home, this is the place! The best part is although it's near the main road and close to the famous seafood market D'talipapa, the home is pretty quiet, perhaps due to the fact that it is located a several metres within after a short, elevated road which you must be prepared to walk up. We love walking so it was not a big deal. You may be greeted by a friendly dog. The room we stayed in was simple yet tasteful with basic necessities included. It truly is a huge guest house, where there are many rooms available with a shared kitchen and living/ lounge area. The large garden boasted many plants. They provided a massage service as well and it was relaxing :) We experienced a blackout for about 30 minutes but it didn't bother me much. They got it fixed. Great service, friendly staff.

Amihan Home is actually a home...
...our home for 3 peaceful quiet nights, which is a luxury in tourist-filled and peddlers-packed Boracay. The owner and manager, Grace Brodard, couldn't have been any nicer. Assisting staff was always available and helpful. Our room was kept clean and no unreasonable request was denied. A choice of plated breakfast starts your day, and there's Mang Inasal, Andok's, Kolai Mangyan, Tiki Bar, BonChon, d'Talipapa market, etc etc, within 10-minutes-slow-walk away. Since the tricycle (10 pesos per person anywhere around Station 1 to Station 3) can't go up the gradual incline of the higher elevated windy location of Amihan Home, prepare to walk (which I wouldn't recommend if you're carrying a "fashion show" in multiple suitcases). The tricycle will let you off at the crossing of d'Talipapa and you just walk up a bit. My Senior Citizen husband took all of 5 minutes to get to Amihan's gate. We never heard popular dog Bo bark once! The main house has 4 rooms, and the extension has 8 rooms; great Free Wifi in both locations. In the extension's balcony, there's an Honesty Refrigerator stocked with beer, soda and water; the owner really expects you to be honest and pay for what you consume. That, I must say, just tells you what kind of a place this is:)
