The secret to staying on the hotel hotlist weighs more on providing variety, than sheer expensive beauty.
To have a fulfilling island vacation on a budget, tourists can allot more funds for their activities and just go for the decently cheap billet for two or a group. Boracay, as a feature, has many budget-friendly hotels and resorts that can be booked in advance using trusted local booking companies.
Below are listed top five affordable Boracay hotels and resorts:
Top 5 budget-friendly Boracay hotels and resorts for large groups
Faith Village Dormitory Building
With premises resembling a typical school ground, Faith Village Dormitory Building on White Beach Station 3 makes accommodating between 250 and 300 persons like an everyday business. The 20 rooms, either equipped with a fan or air-conditioner, come with basic facilities for comfort to help guests get by for the next day’s scheduled team-building or retreat activities. Faith Village, due to its proximity to the best locations on the island, is preferred by government and non-government organisations for their big events; the place is also suitable for family reunions, conferences, and work getaways. For Php450 per night per person for the high season, Faith Village Dormitory Building is a go-to hotel all months of the year.
Moreno’s Boracay Cottages
Out of the many family-suited lodgings in Boracay, Moreno’s Boracay Cottages has got the right ambiance and facilities—not to mention being close to the centre of White Beach and the wafting smells of dishes from the many restaurants. This native-inspired accommodation has the basics (shower, kitchen, AC, safe, TV, towels, WiFi) for surviving away from home, plus surcharge-based use of the minibar and massage service. The balcony and veranda inclusive in each room make for an even cosier stay, perhaps adding to the several reasons why Moreno’s attracts many backpackers and small groups. Clean and spacious, this lodging option would cost a minimum of four people between Php1,900 and Php2,900 per night during the high season.
Boracay Breeze Resort
Modern and classy Boracay Breeze Resort in Station 1 is another lodging option suitable for small groups and families. Boasting proximity to Willy’s Place, Cocomangas, and Club Parao, this accommodation offers guests its 21 rooms, all cool and comfortable and complete with what leisure travelers deserve: hot and cold shower, free WiFi in the dining area, cable TV, queen-sized bed, safe, massage, and restaurant. Free daily breakfast comes with the rate, which is Php3,000 per 4-pax family room per night for the high season.
Alliyah’s Beach Resort
Occupying the growing area of Station 3 on White Beach, Alliyah’s Beach Resort is another straightforward accommodation for small groups of two to six people. There are 22 decently furnished rooms, each equipped with high-speed internet facility, air-conditioning, a desk, a cable TV, a shower, and free toiletries. The hotel also offers laundry, currency exchange, and fax and photocopying services. Guests who do not have time to visit the nearby restaurants can opt for the lodging’s own bar and restaurant; business travelers can use the conference room as desired. Three types of rooms are available, out of which the family room that serves up to six would cost Php4,800 per night during the high season—not bad for a taste of quiet without being too far from the action.
Coco Rimas St. Vincent Resort
There is no wonder why this 30-room hotel in Station 3 is a place where travellers choose to come and go. For one, Coco Rimas is at the center of White Beach, literally the best spot for feeling the vibrant action of the island. But there are other reasons why this native-style lodging option is worth the money. Coco Rimas has rooms suitable for four to 20 people, making it more than right for company outings, extended-family vacations, and barkada getaways. Being a popular budget hotel, this place has all the basics covered, to say the least, and free breakfast comes complimentary for all packages. For a Php5,000 budget per night during high-season travel, Coco Rimas St. Vincent Resort is ideal for a family of eight sharing four double beds.
Local tourists barely need to spend more than Php10,000 for a fruitful vacation on Boracay island. Boracay is, even more, accommodating for large groups, since lodging and activity prices can drastically drop half-price for this kind of travel package.
