I have been travelling and experiencing Boracay for a very long time.
During this reopening of the island since the pandemic, the island slowly revives itself of tourists, thankful its mostly locals .
We take advantage of the promo packages, beach not being crowded.,no queueing in the restaurants, bars are almost empty and of course spending time swmming where there is no one invading your privacy.
Watching the famous sunset during the golden hour is one of the best ever experience without people photobombing on the background.
We arrived on Patio Pacific early than our intended check-in time and were glad to have our room ready,. The frontdesk lady Jesabel is very accomodating.
We use the pool that evening coz we cant hardly wait to swim,, the pool is clean and organized. The pool staff Leslie provide us towels and was so nice.
We ordered pizza and beers during their happy hour and it was delicious. We were served by the waitstaff Elizabeth,she was so accomodating of our request and served us with a beautiful smile.
Breakfast was also a nice experience Art the waiter was very professional and takes care of us during our breakfast, he was so happy to refill our coffes and always asks what we need, although they only have limited menu on breakfast but its understable since the supply is short and everything is still not available on the island.
We also had a chat with their Hotel Manager, Mr James. He approached us during our breakfast and asks how our stay, what we need and to our surprise even extended our check out time.
Everyone we meet was so polite and happy doing their respective jobs. Overall our stay is beyond what we expected, mainly with the people who do their service with a smile, people who is ready to help and extend their courtesy.
For the short period of time being there we feel how we were treated special.
Thank you for the hospitality and showing us what really the Filipino service is.
