It was pretty much last minute for us to secure accommodation during this peak season as most of our choices (nicer beach front hotels) are fully booked or with very high price. Then, we found The Strand and we didn't regret our decision. If you want a peaceful night of sleep, stay at The Strand. It was nice coming back...

Beautiful spacious hotel in great quiet location just off the beach. Really nice to be away from the crowds of white beach. Staff was incredibly accommodating and friendly, and the food was top notch! Would recommend this to anyone coming to Boracay.

We stayed in Strand for a two weeks. This is beautiful place, huge amazing garden, big pool, excellent room-very comfortable, cleaning every day. Great views. Staff was bad, very bad. Location 2min walk to Station 1 White Sand Beach. Beach was poor, dirty, ugly. We went to Puka Shell Beach, it was paradise beach! Nothing interested around the Strand. Bar...

We stayed for six nights with another family and had a wonderful stay. Each family had two grandparents, two parents, one 5-year-old and one 1-year-old. The suites are very spacious and all of us fit without difficulty in two suites. The renovations that previous reviewers mentioned must be done because we did not see or hear any. We found the...

Boracay is amazing. The beach is incredible and water is even better. The stale and however is very meh. It is situated down some rundown street that some might consider the slums. There is a cut through on the property to shantytown shacks that border the "resort". Roosters are everywhere making noise all day and the locals use the property...

The rooms in this hotel are good and spacious. There is something that kinda looks like a kitchen, but that can only be used to e.g. boil water for coffee. The room has satellite tv and WiFi, though the latter did not work when we were there. The staff is polite and friendly. The garden was nice but kind of...

I did tons of research here on TA before deciding on a hotel in Boracay. By and large everybody seemed to say that every hotel was great. I suppose it depends what you are looking for. For me, The Strand was perfect, a classy oasis away from the tackiness of the strip. Personally I have a low tolerance for being...

If you are looking for a quiet holiday in Boracay, The Strand Boracay is good option. It does not have a beachfront which is a negative, but makes with very quiet atmosphere. It has a good pool for the kids, the beach is about 50 mts walk, through a village street. It has only about 20 odd cottages, well furnished...
