El Centro Beach Resort/Hotel is in Station 2, Boracay, right next to the more expensive Boracay Regency Hotel and Resort. It's an older hotel/resort, but the rooms are roomy, nice and very comfortable. They serve free typical Pilino breakfast. What makes this resort exceptional is its staff. They're very courteous and honest. My wife forgot her camera charger and batteries... More

When we go out for a company outing, we usually book in El Centro for so many good reasons. 1. The staff are very friendly, accommodating and approachable. The receptionist - Miss Nono is very helpful. She is easy to deal with and very customer-friendly. 2. The rooms are cheap but wide and spacious with free breakfast for each person.... More

The hotel is centrally located at Station 2. Somewhat clean and breakfast included. The owner is friendly to some but not to everyone. I don't know how she picked which guests she should talk to. Maybe the one's that look like they may have money. She has no idea that I travel a lot and I take the time to... More

For the LaBoracay this year, I went with my cousins and we were a group of 8. We got a room enough for us with 4 queen sized beds, fridge, closet with mirrors, a mini table, a space where you can hang your wet clothes and just 1 toilet and shower room. It was a good deal considering it is... More

Hotel is just infront of the beach, in station 2. The room is big (we are a family of 5) and the breakfast is decent, but other amenities are basic. Still, if you are on a budget then this place is good for you.

Terrible hotel. We booked a room for 3 nights for a conference but ended up staying for just one night. There's nothing in the receiving area. The room was ok, average. The cr was small.

The old location is still my bet. I actually haven't tried when they relocated - only a few steps to the old place, but have heard a lot of complains from the reception to the rooms as well. The old place has a garden at the back and the rooms where far more spacious. It can accommodate 8-10 people as... More

If you are on budget outing to Boracay,need something in heart of Station 2, this is a good place. Very basic rooms, no WiFi , no frills hotel. It's besides Boracay Recency. One more tip for a budget trip to Borac. Book your flights from Kalibo Airport, they are 40%-50% cheaper than Caticalan. It takes 1 hr to get their... More
