Where to Stay in Boracay: Best Western Boracay Tropics

We stayed in this hotel on my first Boracay trip. I fell in love with the hotel kaya ngayong family naman ang kasama, dito kami nag stay. Good thing the hotel offers dorm room.

If you want a hotel that is near the beach (100 meters) but away from the crowd and party place, Best Western Boracay Tropics is the best choice. 

From Villa Romero, we transfer to Boracay Tropics at around 12:00nn. We just rode the tricycle for P10.00 each.

Pagdating sa hotel, we were greeted warmly by the staffs, from the guard to the front desk officers. Mabilis ang check-in. I know that ang check-in time ay 2:00pm kaya balak namin na iwanan na lang muna ang mga bags namin sa kanila at bumalik na lang ng 2pm. To my surprise, the first room is already available and we can already check-in. That was nice! They also served us refreshing iced tea! And also, the room boy assigned to us even carried our oversize bags.

Best Western Boracay Tropics is a Class "AAA" DOT accredited hotel. This is the highest accreditation given by the DOT to resorts.  It is the equivalent to a five-star or a deluxe status of a hotel. At dahil may tatak na Best Western, sa tingin ko ibig sabihin nito ay pasado sa international standards. They were also rated 4 out of 5 by its guests in Tripadvisor. 

They have lush gardens and a pool na pagkakita mo pa lang, relaxing na.

They also have the Tropicafe, where complimentary buffet breakfast is served. Breakfast is good, composed of mostly Filipino breakfast. They also have on the spot omelet.


We got the dorm room for Php 6000.00 good for 6 pax with complimentary breakfast. The room is spacious and the bed is big enough for a single person. It has two sliding windows leading to the small balcony where you can hang your wet cloths. Medyo madilim lang ang room dahil sa ilaw na ginamit. Meron ding mini bar with complimentary coffee, tea and water replenished daily. At may complimentary wifi pa.

Maganda din ang bathroom. Mas malaki yung bathroom sa room 706 compare sa room 701. Meron ding complimentary shampoo and conditioner, soap, cotton buds and bath gel. Towels are also replaced daily.

 If you want to swim in the pool, you can request for towel at the reception for free. But if you're going to use it on the beach, there is a Php 200.00 refundable deposit. Also, the receptionist warn us in having henna tattoo as it can stain both towels and linens.
