7 Smart Tips for Couples to Choose the Best Hotel in Boracay

3 February, 2020

When you and your significant other are planning for your dream getaway together, what romantic destination could be better than Boracay? With its pristine white beach, exciting nightlife, and fun activities, this island is the ideal place to spend time together as a couple.

There are lots of things you two will need to plan out for your dream vacation, with one of the most important being your hotel. There are lots of booking factors to consider and think about. But let’s be honest: do you really want to spend hours on the internet comparing hundreds of the best hotels in Boracay Island? Is there a way to narrow down the “best” place for the two of you? 

What makes a resort “the one” for the two of you is entirely dependent on your needs as a couple. You two know each other the most — you know your budget and your priorities, and you know what you think is the best value for your money. Choosing hotels in Boracay is crucial because this resort will be your home away from home. Your resort experience can make or break your stay, and if you dream of having the most fun romantic getaway together, you’ll have to choose your home wisely.

Need a little help narrowing down the best hotel resort in Boracay? “The best” place may be dependent on your needs as a couple, but you can definitely check out the list below. These tips will help you narrow down what to consider when finding “the one” for the two of you, whether it’s your first time in Boracay or tenth time there together. 

1. Couple priorities

Do you want to lounge indoors all day, or stay out and party all night? What are some couple milestones you want to achieve on this island? What you plan on doing together on your trip will determine the best hotel to stay in Boracay. Figure out your priorities together so that you know if you should book a room at the swankiest resort on the island or in a simple hostel by the beach.

2. Location, location, location

Depending on what you plan on doing together on your trip, you should book a  room nearest to wherever you need to go. Do you want to be by the beachfront? Do you need to be near the malls? Also consider if the resort is near places like restaurants, convenience stores, and coffee shops. You wouldn’t want to book a room and find out during your trip that it’s far from the places you need to be.

3. Money matters

As a couple, you should decide on how much you want to spend on your trip. How much of your budget will you use for your hotel? What about the fun activities there? How much will you spend on food or pasalubong? Figure out your vacation budget and itinerary together and pick the best vacation travel deals so you can make the right choice for your beach experience.

4. Reviews matter, too

It’s always fun to read reviews because these come from the experiences of real-life people. These reviewers can tell you exactly what your accommodations will be like during your vacation, and they can even provide pictures of your accommodation, so make sure to check them all out. Don’t forget to read the negative reviews, too as these can also make or break your final decision.

5. Say amen-ities!

Think about the amenities that the two of you will get inside and outside your room. Is the “holy grail” of amenities — air-conditioning, parking, free Wi-Fi, and free breakfast — available at your hotel? Do you have to pay additional fees for any of these things? Make sure these places have the complete Boracay vacation package. If either you or your significant other can’t live without these amenities, then you should definitely find a place that has all these things ready and free for you. 

6. Safety first

Sometimes this slips couples’ minds, but security is so important whenever you travel together. With the island being such a dream destination for couples, thousands of tourists visit every day. Inquire if the place has security guards and CCTV cameras and if you can easily contact the local police from the hotel. There are also new Boracay rules to follow on the island given its recent cleanup and reopening, so you will have to be aware of them, too. 

7. Check the cancellation policy

It may feel like a negative thing to think about, but when booking a Boracay vacation package, take the time to check out the hotel’s cancellation policy. You can never be too sure of what may happen as your vacation nears. What if a storm hits? What if one of you gets sick? What if one of you has a work emergency? Always check the hotel’s cancellation policies, fees, and money-back guarantee so you can be assured of the best vacation, whether it happens or not.
