We visited Boracay for the first time last May 13-18. For our first 4 days we stayed at a different hotel but for our last 3 days we booked at The Tides Hotel to have a feel of the crowd and night life. By the time we arrived the staff are all welcoming and they provided a cold towel for...

Location location location! It is located right in “D Mall”. Very convenient for everything. Eating, shopping and night life is just within reach. Though rooms are just ok and bathrooms are quite small, if you are seeking for convenience, this is the right one for you.

The hotel is located inside of D-mall so clinics, supermarket, souvenir shops, and eateries are all around. It is also very near to the shore of station 2. We initially only booked for 3nights but both of us contracted stomach flu and we had to extend our stay at the very last minute for 2 consecutive days. During one of...

While I didn't book in this hotel, my husband and I went there for the bar. They have the best cocktails and we enjoyed them during Happy Hour. Seriously, the bartenders were nice and accommodating and that was the first time I actually enjoyed my cocktail. For the entire week, my husband and I enjoyed those cocktails and tipped them...

They can't even do the basics right! NO HOT WATER for showers the entire time we were here. Every day we complained, and they said they were going to fix it, but every day, we find there's no hot water when we're taking the shower! One day, after I put the shampoo on my hair, some how the shower just...

I've been to boracay a few times but this will definitely be the last time I'll spend my vacation here. The place is laden with tourist and the type of crowd is just not what it used to be. The beach is beautiful but people don't come here for the beach anymore. It's becoming dirtier each time. Also, what's up...

I have high expectations for The Tides Boracay because of the nice and sunny lobby it has. It's quite average but it has some redeeming qualities. The Good It's located in the center of D'Mall which is in the center of Station 2 in Boracay. It's not in the beach front but it will only require a few minutes to...

We are a very happy tourist in the house. The room given to us was upgraded and its really clean! A must stay hotel if you visit Boracay. Very accomodating people and the pool is a must as well. Free complimentary cocktail and a welcome drink wd a very cold towel once you arrive, help ease the hot weather. Will...

Very small bathroom. The airco makes awful sounds. Not easy if you want to sleep. Very bad internet connection. You have to go to the lobby to be able to use whatsapp. The free breakfast is not worth it. Good omelette that's it, the rest is eatable. Good for 60 euro. If you pay more (we paid 110) the you...
