You'd be crazy not to stay here! Aug 19, 2013
Stayed at Patio Pacific for 4D/3N with my sister for holiday. This was one of the best decisions we've made on our entire vacation!
Transfer to and from the hotel to Caticlan airport was smooth and went off without a hitch.
Upon our arrival at the hotel, we were greeted by staff with shell necklaces and a welcome drink buko pandan shake. It was such a great welcome. The resort staff was such a happy bunch. After checking-in, we were greeted by Carlos, the Operations Manager of the resort, and personally showed to our room. The room was amazing! The ready coolness from the airconditioner; the warm lights, cleanliness and feel of the room and bathroom made our immediate entrance quite pleasant and relaxing.
Carlos also offered to show us the rest of the resort as well as the quickest way to get to the beach. There was a wall climb feature, which was a challenge to tackle but very fun. Their gym was well-equipped, clean and professional; and their pool was gorgeous, clean and welcoming. The walk to the beach? Barely a walk - you were there in 2 minutes! There's a private, well-lit and secure walkway to be passed, which will take you to the beautiful sands of the beach in no time.
The hotel is located in Station 1 and is close to almost everything. So convenient; we hardly had to worry about our safety or how we were going to get to places.
If there's any activity you wanted to do, you can book it with the front desk and they'll look after you.
On our second night, I lost one of my (gray) contact lenses in the pool and after looking around for an hour, I gave up and asked one of the lifeguards to help me and notify me if they had found it. He was very helpful and said that they'd try to find it in the morning, since it was a lot harder at night. That's what I loved about Patio Pacific's staff, they were very optimistic and helpful, even if what you're asking for is nearly impossible.
There was wi-fi in the room, but it would cut out a few times, which prompted us to have to go into common areas outside. This was not a big deal though and was easily rectified.
On our last morning, I hit up the gym before checking out. One of the workers approached me with something in hand and said the following in Tagalog, 'Ma'am, is this what you were looking for?' Lo and behold! There was my contact! All dry and shrivelled up. I was so shocked, amazed, impressed and embarrassed at the same time. I nodded and said, 'I can't believe you found it!' Even though it could no longer be used, I was still super impressed with how the staff approached this. Two thumbs way up!
Overall, the stay was beyond my expectations and I will definitely be staying here again on my next visit to Boracay!

Fantastic in every detail Nov 30, 2008
I got a tour package that includes airport and boat transfers on top of the 3-day/2-night accom and breakfast. The transfer was impeccable and the service people are very professional. This journey comprises of a land transfer from the airport to a boat port, a boat ride and another land transfer to the hotel - and then vice-versa. The system was very organized and commendable especially to tired people (like us) who were arriving from a really early flight - ETA: 0700H. With that said, we expected that we'll have to kill some time at the beach while waiting for our rooms to get ready by 2 pm. We were advised later that it was ready by noon, just before we had our lunch. Another plus point! Although it wasn't really peak season when we came.
We took most of our meals at their outlets also, it was buffet so portions are fine, however, maybe it would be nicer if they add another main course selection or two.
The room was ok. It was clean and I guess we were lucky that we got the room at the wing that is closer to the beach front. We had rose petals on the bed -sweet! **TIP: during reservation, ask to be booked at the wing that's closer to the beach! and if possible, on level one as they have little pocket gardens :)
There's a pool, a gym and a wall climbing facility. The pool is nothing out of the ordinary and it would be really awesome if they had more sun-beds. But who cares about a pool anyway when there's a fabulous beach a few steps away. :)
The location (if you get the beach side rooms) is perfect, it's about a 3-minute stroll away from the beach front. This gives you peace that beachfront properties may not have and easy access to the streets, bars and D*Mall.
Overall, it was a great and personalized experience and the place is very recommendable. You get what you pay for and more :)
