Grand Vista Boracay Resort & Spa
Ranked #124 of 151 Hotels in Boracay
Reviewed 10 February 2016

We took the honeymoon suite..room design was average..had a private pool which was sufficient. Housekeeping was horrible, not refurnishing our 2 mineral water bottles per/day quota. A bit late to clean the room too. The breakfast buffet was below average, late in topping up. Hourly shuttle to D'Mall was pleasant and timely too. Main swimming pool was a bit dirty and not cleaned often. Had a great view from the swimming pool facing Front Beach/White Beach. Wifi to the rooms was below average, slow too. At night it will be full since everyone will be hogging the wifi.

Room Tip: Good luck in choosing the rooms.

Situated away from the noise and bustle of White Beach the hotel is undergoing some renovation, but the willingness of Mr Elsa, the Manager, and his team, especially M J to give their guests a great service was a breath of fresh air.

Good pool, nice gardens , good breakfast and excellent housekeeping and transport service.

On two evenings we decided to eat in and the staff very kindly allowed us to create our own menu.

Mr Elsa is one of those rare breed of managers who is out front. With his guests. Experiencing what is happening from the front. Reminiscent of the great Alex Chakrabati ex Manager of the Mercur, Thailand.

We will go back.

Good room with private pool, however the pool is just for view and not for swim! You won't swim there as it is damn cold because there is a roof there. Also there are lots of fly dead inside the pool...I don't think you will swim there.

The room is big enough and nice. Also the price is not too high so it is still value for money.

Room Tip: relax, good for couples

We booked a room on a promo site about hotels and fell in love with the features we saw, what got are attentuon was the featured private pool, inside your room! The staff was accomodating, food is so-so, the room is big enough and they also provided my special request.

One thing, the private pool in our room is not so clean, so we never used it, but the public pool is big and clean enough to save the day.

Pros:
- Staff were excellent and there appears to be a good in-house training program in place.
- Views are awesome, both from rooms and from the outdoor areas around the pool
- Staying up on the hill away from the main beach area provides a rest from the crowds, noise etc and also some cooling breezes
- Puka beach is very close by
- Private pool on your balcony is nice
Cons:
- Food options limited (but there are a couple of restaurants nearby and it's a short trip on the shuttlebus down to the Boatstation areas)
- No shelter around the pool area, so no shady places to sit. However, in the afternoon, the building on the western side gradually shadows/shades the grass area around the pool as the sun goes further across the horizon.
- Free wifi but it worked poorly inside our room. Outside on the balcony or around the pool and in the (open air!) breakfast area -all good.

Summary - we'd go back for sure.

Room Tip: Rooms on the Western side will come beautiful sunset views.
