It must have been quite some time since I’ve last visited my blog. Must have been caught up with a lot of things that made me forget how to write, but not forget how to travel.
For all these months that I’ve been gone, I’ve still been travelling – a lot.
So a few weeks ago I found myself coming back once again (for the nth time) to Boracay.
While looking for a good quality, topnotch hotel with a good location but not one that is expensive, I came across Patio Pacific Boracay. Upon reading reviews from Trip Advisor, I found out it’s one of the most recommended hotels in Boracay. One that is totally worth your money.
Patio Pacific Hotel Review
Patio Pacific started in 1990 as the 8 room Pink Patio. Today it is one of the premier resorts of Boracay, with 66 deluxe rooms and suites, large swimming pool, full gym, wall climbing, chill out lounge, videoke song bar, wellness massage center, and full restaurant and bar.
Located in Station 1 Boracay Island, Philippines, the resort is non-beachfront but is only 2-3 minutes walk to the 3.5 kilometer long white beach and just a 5-10 minutes walk to Station 2 D’Mall area where there are various restaurants and shops.
The resort has won several awards for its hospitality and services, including the E3 award (Excellence in Ecology and Economy) of the Philippine Chamber of Commerce and the Kalakbay award of the Department of Tourism.
The resort prides itself on being a DOT-accredited Triple-A resort, which means that aside from accommodations, they have at least three other facilities for guests to enjoy. In Patio Pacific’s case, they have a swimming pool, a conference room that can fit up to 200 people, and a fitness center. They are also the only Boracay resort with a wall-climbing facility on the premises, perfect for getting a last minute work-out or a quick adrenaline fix before hitting the beach.
Patio Pacific’s rooms are quality high end rooms, with full amenities which all have air conditioners, private bathrooms, a refrigerator and mini-bar, a safety deposit box, a TV, and a high speed internet.
We were also lucky to be accommodated in their deluxe suite which have an enormous bathroom (so large I think it could be made as another room).
And of course it comes with a bath tub – perfect for a warm dip after a day from the beach.
Patio Pacific also has an in-house restaurant, Garden Café, which specializes in Chinese and Filipino cuisine, as well as a bar, the Vanilla Lounge, which are also both Wi-Fi accessible. Their buffet breakfast is a must try!
