A Rainy Morning in Boracay Sands Hotel


I was looking for hotel in the front beach area that is not too crowded by tourists and luckily, I found, Boracay Sands Hotel. The hotel is situated in station 3 with a beautiful sunset view. I found this place more relaxing as it isn't crowded at night because most of the party people are in station 1 and 2 which is an advantage to me because I want to relax and to have peace of mind.



Upon entering the hotel, I got a warm greeting from a receptionist and  Ms. Anne, the front officer, assisted me on my check-in process. Upon presenting my ID, she gave my Key card and one of the boys in concierge helped me with my things going to my room located on the third floor of the building.


They have 53 rooms composed of the ocean view, Presidential suite and Deluxe rooms to choose from.I was in the Deluxe room which is very spacious and carpeted with 2 single bed, wide screen TV, complimentary 2 bottled water, Coffee and Tea maker, Mini bar, Toiletries, Rain shower with hot & cold and of course a very comfy bed for my tired body.




The staff of the hotel is very accommodating and approachable, especially their resident manager Mr. Rey. I feel much accommodated and well taken care of and made my stay more comfortable.








After watching the sunset, I was informed that they have a barbecue activity in the front beach area for dinner. My friend and I decided to try their menu so we chose from their seafood platter composed of Shrimp, Baked Oyster, a slice of Tuna and squid for only P350 or a combination of pork and chicken for only P250 with a cup of rice and unlimited soup of the day. So we tried both and after 15 minutes of waiting, finally they served our delicious meal. The baked oyster attracted me most because it’s been a long time since I ate one.







After a fulfilling meal, my friend and I decided to swim in their friendly pool before going to bed.


I was watching news on TV and I found out that typhoon #MarcePH will hit Boracay Island and the rest of Panay Island. Early morning, I noticed that the rainfall is too strong and I didn’t mind it because I’m still sleepy.




When I woke up around 9am the weather was still not good. The wind and rainfall are very strong and the whole island doesn’t have electricity. The hotel was using their Generator set but they cannot use it the whole day because it will over heat. After breakfast, I went to my room to sleep again because I couldn't go outside.














So, for another adventure in the hotel. I went to their spa located in the basement of the building to check out their services offered. I was thinking to treat myself in a rainy day with a stone massage so I enlisted my name to the reception of the spa for an 8pm schedule before I called it a night.
When I woke up the next morning I felt so excited because the sun is up, the sky is clear and it's a sunny day. It’s a good idea to walk in the powdery sand of Boracay Island before checking out.
