tranquil paradise!

Posted Jan 28, 2015
Pros: Absolutely everything!
Cons: I cannot think of a thing.
Location: Safe 10 min. walk to the beach, 30 min. inexpensive tricycle ride to Puka beach. Less crowded, more private.
Our stay at The Mandala Spa and Resort was fantastic. I cannot think of a thing that could have possibly improved it. We stayed in the garden suite, which was accurately pictured in the website. It was very clean and well kept. The surroundings are beautiful. I cannot say enough about the staff. They are far beyond hotel friendly, all having such a warm smile, giving the feeling that they genuinely care. It is a safe 10 minute walk, giving you a taste of local life, to the beach. We found it enjoyable to spend time at the beach, which was full of activity, but then be able to return to the tranquility of the resort to relax, away from everything. It was a truely wonderful experience. My compliments to all of the staff at Mandala!

Excellent service, luxurious villas

Posted Jan 11, 2015
Pros: The serenity, the beautiful grounds, spa, and rooms, and especially the service. The private transport to and from the airport was a big plus.
Cons: Have tampons in the women's restrooms of the spa. Add a lotion to the in room amenities.
Location: A 30 min walk to the hub, Station 2, of White Beach, or a $100 php motor cab ride to there. Lots of good eats in d'Talipapa, d'Mall, and on beach.
The feel of the place is lovely, and serene. A nice haven to escape to after the bustle of activity on White Beach. The staff will call you by name, know your preferences for breakfast, and overall are extremely accommodating. The spa services were divine. The villas were spacious and very comfortable. The included breakfast was relatively healthy, and the fresh juices, homemade jams, and fresh fruit were all so very tasty. Yoga instructors were very good. Everyone was so caring and professional!

Mooie villa's, maar afgelegen

Posted Dec 14, 2014
Pros: Mooie tuin- goede en verzorgde villa's
Cons: Minstens een voorraad gekoelde dranken aanhouden. Snacks ter beschikbaar houden. Minimaal deze bij een vraag ergens kopen en brengen.
Location: Ligt wat afgelegen en op een geheel andere plaats dan Expedia aangeeft. Moeilijke wandeling van 10 minuten naar het strand. Verder nabij niets te doen
Na aankomst om ca. 23.00 uur bleek de villa nog steeds niet klaar voor gebruik. Airco en koelkast waren nog niet aangezet. Drankjes in de koelkast waren dus meer dan 30 graden. Geen bier, geen drank. Er is geen keuken dus men moet voor alles de deur uit en een taxi nemen.

Tropical Escape in Third World Setting

Posted Dec 7, 2014
Pros: Isolated from the beach in a tropical setting.
Cons: The wifi is a "turtle net" dial up speed.
Location: The beach, with all its restaurants and bars is a short walk . The ocean is crystal clear and the white sand exquisite!
Hotel staff is friendly yet inexperienced. The facility is quiet and well maintained. With new rooms being constructed it is a free form work in progress.

아름답고 여유가 있는 곳

Posted Nov 26, 2014
Pros: 자연 친화적이고 고요하고 편안한 곳
Cons: 방에서 곰팡이 냄새가 남
Location: 바로 옆에 10분도 안되는 거리의 해변에서 즐길 수 있고, 해변가를 따라서 걸어서 스테이션 2, 디몰 등 유명 거리까지 갈 수 있음 (저녁에) 트라이시클을 타고 가면 10분 이내 중심가인 디몰에 가서 쇼핑 및 레스토랑 바 등 즐길 수 있음
프라이빗한 공간에서 나만의 시간을 가질 수 있어서 좋다. 전체적으로 열대나무와 풀 등,바람, 새소리 등이 너무 좋았다. 직원들도 너무 친절했고, 빠르고 급하지 않게 천천히 여유롭게 가는 그 공간이 참 마음에 남는다. 리셉션의 음악도 너무 좋았고... 다만, 룸에서 처음 들어갔을때 곰팡이 냄새가 좀 났는데, 친구 말이 이런자연친화적인 숙소는 약간씩 난다고 한다. 내가좀 예민한 편이라서 그 부분은 좀 힘들었다. 아무래도 바닷가 근처 습기가 많아서 그런것 같다. 아뭏튼 그거 빼고는 다 좋았다. 스파 서비스도 좋았고, 여유롭게 놀다가 근처 바닷가에 가서 수영하고 쉬고, 맛있는거 먹고 .. 이런게 휴양이고 휴식인것 같다.

대만족 풀빌라 여행

Posted Sep 24, 2014 on Hotels.com
만달라 풀빌라에서 2박 했습니다~! 사진으로 봤던 것 보다도 훨씬 자연친화적이고 아름다웠어요. 프라이빗 풀장도 크고 무엇보다도 화장실이 너무너무 예뻤어요~ 바로 수영장과 연결되어있고... 가격대비 너무 예뻤던 곳입니다! 다른 호화호텔 보다도 매력적인 곳이었어요^^

온수 뺴고 100점

Posted Sep 24, 2014
Pros: 직원들... 부담스러울 정도의 극친절... 너무 좋음. 왕이 된 기분입니다.
Cons: 온수에 관련되어서는 개선 필요.. 뜨거운물도 없는데 어떻게 스파를 할지...
Location: 화이트비치 어디는 갈수있습니다.
말그데로 온수빼고 100점입니다. 온수가 조큼 약합니다. 뜨거운물이 아닌 미지근한 물이 나옵니다. 직원들과 객실은 여타 리조트보다 좋습니다. 새벽 체크아웃시 도시락까지 싸주는 센스!

Wonderful Stay

Posted Sep 13, 2014 on Hotels.com
Stayed there for 5 nights and I must say everything was as good as I expected it to be. Took digital detox villa and the room was beautiful, clean and spacious. Bath tub was huge enough for 2. Water flow isnt that fantastic though. Very little water and the water is always either too hot or too cold. Spa really lived up to the standard and I felt like I was in paradise. It may be expensive it is sure worth the money. Staff were always very helpful to get tricycles for us when we wanted to go out and they always greet guests. It is not located at the beach but there is a private walkway of about 5 minutes to get to white beach, which is worth it because the beach is absolutely stunning. Breakfast is ok, you get to choose between 4 menus. Tried all but love spa breakfast the most. Will definitely be back again to mandala if I ever come to boracay again. Even if not to stay, the spa will definitely draw me here again.

森の中のヴィラ

Posted Sep 2, 2014
Pros: スパ
Cons: レストランやバーがないのなら、せめて氷くらいは用意して欲しい。
スパが有名ということで泊まりましたが、それ以外の設備は何もないため退屈しました。ビーチまでも徒歩で15分くらいかかるので便利ではありません。レストランやバーも当然ないので、寝るためだけにいる感じでした。 ただ、森の中のヴィラだったので静かに何もしないで過ごす人には良いかもしれません。
