We have been to Boracay several times and stayed at different hotels but Watercolors by far gives the best service. The staff always greeted its guests with a smile and always tends to their needs. We will definitely go back here! P.S. The F&B staff are simply the best!

Absolutely amazing staff. Work as a team. They will make you feel home. Nice, clean place with a beautiful front terrace kind of little away from the main loud crowded strip, but still close enough to enjoy both. Thank you for wonderful time. Will definitely come back with family.

My family and I had an overall great stay at WaterColors Boracay. It has the best location! You get to have an amazing view of the beach plus it's also quite distant to the crowded part of the island which we actually prefer. We booked two rooms, Penthouse and Beachfront 1st Floor Rm. We were very satisfied with our reapective...

Quiet and clean hotel to spend perfect holidays - the front beach terrace or the rooftop are perfect to enjoy the sunset. Staff is always available to help you and offer the best service, special thanks to Andy who gave me a lot of nice ideas of places to visit in Philippines!

Best accommodation by the most efficient and friendly resort staff. Highly recommended! We stayed for a week and never was there a moment that the staff let us down. Even when there were some 'hiccups' within our stay, their staff know just what to do. Five-star hotels in the island should learn a thing or two from the Watercolors Resort...
