For the price you can't beat it. I stayed in fancier and expensive hotels as well during my trip to Boracay but this was by far my favorite. Great location right next to Station 2. The hotel staff take note of when you leave the room and go in and clean while you're out. I left money and electronics out... More

Ernest's Place may not be as ridiculously fancy as some of the resorts on Boracay, but it is a very clean and quiet place to stay. On an island jam packed with tourists, it's nice to find a place that isn't beside the beach crowds or party-ers. Yet with the island being so small, Ernest's Place isn't far from anything.... More

“Choose rooms hit by direct sunlight if you plan to wash your clothes! Also, choose rooms on lower floors because it is more convenient. :)”
