Boracay has always been a top destination choice for my friends and relatives. Due to this, I've always wondered what it is with the place that they tend to go back over and over again. Luckily, we were able to score a cheap airfare for a trip to Boracay last Nov 2011.
We stayed at the Pearl of the Pacific Hotel at Station 1 for 3 days 2 nights. We got the deal for around 6,000 pesos for 3 of us in a room. With it being in station 1 and inclusive of buffet breakfast and free use of facilities, i think we got a good deal.

we arrived early at our hotel (around 9-10AM) and since our rooms are not yet available, we left our luggages at the reception and walk around the vicinity.

Once we reached station 2, we went straight to DMALL for an early lunch. We immediately saw Andoks and since their sulit meals fits our budget, we dined here. You can have a plain meal here for around 50 pesos (1pc chicken w/ rice). We ordered sinigang na baboy, and 3 orders of their dokitos w/ rice. Add a 1.5 coke and busog ka na. No wonder Andoks is always full of customers, sa sobrang mura niya, even foreigners eat here.

After going to station 3 and back, we were finally able to check in to our room. Our room is at the Deluxe Hill side (a bit of a climb, but room is nice enough). Room is spacious with everything in working order. Bed is very soft & relaxing. Actually, we slept for a few hours after checking in. Woke up at around 5PM just in time for an afternoon swim at the beach. Sakto lang coz hindi na masyado maaraw by this time. As much as I want to enjoy the beach, ayoko rin naman masyado umitim. =)
