I stayed at Ralphs Place for 5 months. Its a place of comfort and tranquility. Beautiful homes set in a well tended garden of flowers and trees on a hill overlooking the entire bulabog beach and half the island. The rooms are clean and cozy, the staff is very friendly snd very helpful. The restaurant "by da way" served a...

We were in Ralph's place from 12-17 Feb. There is indeed a long flights of stairs up to our garden bungalow. But once u reach the top the view is breathtaking!!! The bungalow was clean and cosy. All the amenities were good. The breakfast didn't have a wide selection but the food was generally good. The restaurant was a nice...

If you want to get away from the chaos of Boracay, I'd point you to Ralph's Place. Very nice place run by Ralph and his lovely family who also own very cute labradors that often wander around the property. I stayed in one of their deluxe rooms and it was great overall, not to mention the food at the in-house...

I was actually surprised at how nice this place is and the nice service we received there. The "By Da Way" restaurant is a hidden gem. Great food, cheap prices and great service. Abigail is one of the best servers I've had in the Philippines and is honestly the reason we made a point of eating an additional meal there...

We stayed at the View House for a couple of days with two smaller kids and simply loved it. The location of the place at the kite-beach is perfect for a family with a sport-maniac daddy. The white beach is only 5 minutes away with a reasonable priced tuk-tuk which can carry up to 6 people or a 15 minutes...

I stayed at Ralph's place for 3 days after staying at White Beach, Boracay for a week. It was a refreshing change. I am a kitesurfer and the Bulabog kitesurf beach is just 20m from lobby. I was happy to stay at Ralps for a few days after the noisy and happening lifestyle at white beach. One night the electricity...

Borocay was far more touristy that I expected, after a week in Palawan. So staying at Ralph's Place was a lucky choice for us. Bulabog is a quieter beach than White Beach but only a 15 min walk away.

“At the time of our stay, there was a fair amount of building work going and this will inevitably change the layout of the site so it might be worth asking about views etc before booking. Our bungalow part shared an outdoor area (which was great - sociable) but some of the other rooms had private garden areas.”
