Roy's wife was very-very friendly and welcomed us. She helped us with a taxi, cooked a dinner for us and she gave us a plant (aloe) when we were sunburned. Staff were polite.
The room was basic and clean, the surrounding area was a lot of green. Beds were comfy and the air con worked well. There is also a nice hot shower.
Breakfast (in my opinion, the best in Phills) consisted of toast, butter, jam, 1/4 of pineapple, powdered mango juice, coffee or tea.
We had nice sleepy nights. The hotel locates on second line from the beach, so there are not so noisy and not bystanders.
It was super-peak season and almost no empty room, that's why we tried both bungalow and standard room. They both are very comfortable.

Spent a week there in one of the family rooms (room 2). Roy and his wife are very friendly and welcomed us. The room was basic and clean, as was the surrounding area. Beds were comfortable and the air con worked well. There is also a nice hot shower. Breakfast consisted of toast, butter, jam, slice of fruit (usually pineapple), powdered mango juice, coffee or tea. Staff were polite but not as friendly as Roy. There is a boat vendor there (Jason) who will organise any trip you wish.
The main negative we found was the noise at night. Of the 7 nights we were there, we only had 1 undisturbed night's sleep. The room windows are of the louvre style, so any noise outside easily gets into the room. The reception area is outside and is directly opposite the family rooms 1 & 2. The reception opens at around 6am with plenty of noise being made, we also had noisy neighbours on 3 nights, rooms 1 & 2 have an adjoining door which means you can easily hear someone talking in the room next door. As a result we generally didn't get to sleep until later than planned and got woken up much earlier than we would have liked.
We have previously stayed at Dave's Straw Hat, just around the corner this is a much friendlier place and quieter, you are made to feel part of the family there, but they were fully booked. As the noise issue spoilt the trip for us, if we go to Boracay again, we would chose Dave's and book them earlier.

Room Tip: Take ear plugs!

We spent two lovely weeks of peace and quiet. I recommend this place to people, who want to relax, no looking for luxury, but want to spend a holiday in a small family hotel. Beautiful beach is 50 meters away and that's what I went to the island. Hotel has simple and clean rooms with fan or air conditioning, TV..Accommodation with breakfast or without. You can order a meal at a good price! Homemade delicious omelets, spaghetti, etc...

Room Tip: Higher floor in main building is quiet, good for sleep.

We booked Roy's Rendezvouz mainly because of the price but it turned out to be a really pleasant surprise and we would certainly stay again if we ever return to Boracay.
Set back only 100m or so from the beach, Roy's is in the slightly quieter station 3 area but still only 5-10minute walk to the heart of the cafes and nightlife.
The rooms are very spacious and well appointed, extremely clean and comfortable. Breakfast (fresh fruits, toast, jams, coffee, fruit juice) was excellent and served on our balcony: a great way to start the day.
The lovely couple who own this place (Roy and Olivia) went out of their way to help us even when we turned up unannounced a day early and late at night. Despite being fully booked, Roy ran around (in his pajamas!) finding us a room close by for a similar price and when we finally checked into Roys the next day they even gave us breakfast on arrival which technically we were not entitled to! They also gave us a good map of the area and local paper. We found nothing to be too much trouble and everything was done with a smile. Definitely recommended

I booked the room for 2 nights & wanted to transfer on the 2nd day because it was so humid & there was no airconditioning! We checked the other local hotels & found there are also rooms in town with the same rate & even closer to the beach!

However, the owner was so sweet, so we decided to stay. However, I had to asked her to change the beddings because I think it was used by the previous occupant.

Breakfast for P120 is "highway robbery" because it only consists of 3-in-1 Instant Coffee, 2 slices of Toast Bread, butter, jam & a slice of pineapple! Both on the 2 days!

Room Tip: good for backpackers & teenagers! or those who does not need airconditioning when sleeping.
