A Rainy Morning in Boracay Sands Hotel

I was looking for a 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 party people are in stations 1 and 2, which is advantageous. After all, I want to relax and 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 me my Key card, and one of the boys in the 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 beds, widescreen TV, complimentary 2 bottled water, Coffee and Tea maker, Minibar, Toiletries, Rainshower 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 oysters, 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 nice pool before bed.

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

When I woke up around 9am the weather was still not good. The wind and rainfall are extreme, and the whole island doesn't have electricity. The hotel was using their Generator set, but they could not use it the entire day because it would 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 the services offered. I was thinking of treating myself on a rainy day with a stone massage, so I enlisted my name to the spa's reception for an 8pm schedule before I called it a night.
When I woke up the following day, I felt so excited because the sun was up, the sky was clear, and it was sunny. It's a good idea to walk in the powdery sand of Boracay Island before checking out.

I was not expecting that the pool is super cold it just imagine like a cooler with full of ice cubes, let say the temperature is less than 15 degrees Celsius, so far this is my first time swimming experience  with a flowing fresh water pool coming from the mountain of Canlaon,  Yes! It's a fresh water.


Superior Room I was searching on the internet on where to spend a night, since my flight to Manila is early in the morning. Luckily, I found this hotel. A budget friendly and offers great service.

Bantayan Island it is not a place for a shopping or an adventure. This island is all about peace. If you want to have  break in the crowded city, the noise, the pollution and the stress, then come to this peaceful island of Bantayan in Cebu and discover what Living in Paradise. My friend Dennis and I decided to have   Bantayan Island instead of Isla Gigantes in Carles, we have little idea about getting in Bantayan via Estancia, Iloilo, after our Panay Island visit we headed to Estancia and stay for an overnight because we don’t know if the route is  still working    with  pump boat crossing to Bantayan Island .
