Get the tree house
There was only place I'd return to from time to time to have a lazy vacation/beach bum - Boracay. Now this place ranks 2nd or maybe they're a tie for 1st place. To get to the resort was a long, time consuming (but worthy) travel. The resort's nothing fancy, has basic amenities, not even a TV in any of the rooms. There’s only 1 in the restaurant. But you won’t need it anyway. We got the tree house on our 1st night. I loved that experience! The tree is surrounded by lights at night. They provide Off lotion, but because you’re high from the ground, there are no mosquitos. There’s 1 fan in the room, but it’s enough since it’s not really hot. The tree house doesn’t have its ensuite bath so we have to use the common bathroom, which is just fine because it’s clean. I’m sure it helps we’re the only 2 checked in (with my teen aged daughter). There’s hammock below the tree house, which my daughter owned during our stay. On our 2nd night, we stayed at a cottage with its ensuite open roof bath (but just a fraction =)). Again, basic amenities, 1 queen size bed with a fan and a rechargeable lamp. They provide soap, tissue and towels. There’s bottles of mineral water as well, all these on both the tree house and cottage. Their towels and blankets, by the way, smell good. I have to mention this because before going here, we stayed 1 night in North Zen Hotel (due to late night flight) and their towel and blanket don’t smell fresh (I have a separate review for this). You can stroll or just bum on the shore. The shore line is actually made up of crushed corals, so being barefoot hurt a bit. They have a floating house where you can lounge and snorkel (boat/mask/life vest are for rent per hour). The food – good with big servings (we loved the calamares). If you have left over, you can ask them to keep them in the fridge and reheat when you get hungry again. The only 1 thing I didn’t like: they don’t have contacts for island hopping (because my daughter is into island hopping); but for me, I’m lazy, so over all, it’s an awesome vacay!
