Address: Boat Station 1 Boracay Island, Brgy. Balabag, Malay, 5608 Aklan.
The location of Astoria Boracay is what makes it a chillaxing (or chilling and relaxing) accommodation. Being at the heart of white beach in Station One (1), the surroundings is peaceful and quiet at night and it has a better beach front (a 1 min. walk from the hotel). Additionally, it’s just a 5 min. walk to the restaurant, shopping, and entertainment heart of White Beach – Station Two (2). D’Mall is indeed walking distance from Astoria Boracay.
Aside from that, it’s a convenient spot to get a tricycle or multi-cab for getting around Boracay based on my experience.
When my brother and I showed up at Astoria Boracay, my fatigue from the trip going there was erased upon seeing the white open spaces and the mesmerizing cool furniture that they have. Their local staff on the front desk warmly welcomed us, checked us in, and served their welcome Pandan juice that certainly refreshed us.
The Deluxe Room
The room doesn’t have a vast expanse of space, but it’s hip and cool interior plus the provision of modern living comforts make it attractive. It can comfortably accommodate up to four people with its great quality bedding and good linens.
If you decide to have a Henna tattoo, don’t go to your room unless you’re 100% sure that it’s completely dry. Astoria Boracay charges for stained or ruined linens, towels, curtains, and wall.
Additionally, the room has an LCD cable television to keep one entertained and, of course, free Wi-Fi access. We could only connect two devices per room at a time during our stay. I’m sure Lloyd if he was with us, would find it a hassle since he usually has multiple devices. By the way, mobile signal is weak inside the room so you’ll really have to rely on Wi-Fi if you want to communicate with someone.
What I like about the room is that they have a desk where I could blog and, at the same time, do my make up. Talk about multi-tasking.
The room also comes with a tiny kitchenette that is equipped with a coffee/ tea maker, a microwave, and a refrigerator. There is also a small dining table with two chairs for in-room dining as you can see in the photo above.
There was a drying rack inside the room since no one is allowed to hang wet clothes on the verandas. I ended up putting my luggage and bag there since Astoria Boracay offers free drying service. How convenient is that?
All I did was call, give my wet clothes to their room attendant, fill up their clothes checklist, and wait for them to return it dry within 2-3 hours. If you call them after 8:00PM, expect your items to be returned at 4:00AM the earliest.
The deluxe room’s bathroom is fairly simple, but it is spacious and well-supplied with bathroom necessities. Their complimentary toiletries were from Archive which is usually found in good hotels and guest houses. What I love about that set is that it has a refreshing fragrance and it really cleans.
I had a blissful shower after using it. And, yes, I’m guilty that I stuck these in my luggage because I knew that it would be handy for going on trips.
One of Astoria Boracay’s amenities is its outdoor swimming pool that is 4 to 5 feet deep. They also have a swimming pool with a small slide for kids to play in.
The highlight of the swimming pool is that it changes colors. They turn it on around 6:00PM so don’t step out of the pool early.
Other facilities that Astoria Boracay has are the following:
- White Cafe for breakfast and lunch buffet.
- Astoria Beach Front for dinner buffet.
- Vibe Lounge for happy hour.
- Function rooms for conference and banquets.
I give Astoria Boracay a 4/5 rating for their service. Their staff is really attentive. They offer welcome drinks and drying service which everyone will find to be convenient. Finally, they provide beach towels available for use at the pool or by the beach. One just has to get one from the pool attendant. I think the only turn off for some guests is their invitation for a free dinner in exchange for a timeshare presentation. I didn’t accept the offer because I don’t want feel pressured for something I wouldn’t avail.
These rates come with buffet breakfast, complimentary Wi-Fi access, and welcome drinks.
- DELUXE ROOM | PhP 8, 002 (or 166.39 USD)
- LUXURY ROOM | PhP 11,642 (or 241.96 USD)
- PREMIER ROOM | PhP 14,625 (or 303.96 USD)
Astoria Boracay is a reasonable accommodation for those who wants to relax in Boracay. This is because the location is great and one has easy access to the beach front that is Boracay’s highlight. And for Astoria Boracay’s room, facilities, and service, one gets their money’s worth. I have no qualms in staying in Astoria Boracay again since I’m definite that I’ll usually experience a chilling and relaxing getaway there.
