Small friendly hotel away from the crowdsPosted Apr 24, 2014
High on a hill overlooking the island Tanawin is away from the crowds but you rely on the hotel shuttle which runs every hour to take you down to the main area. There are bicycle taxis if you want to come back at a different time but these often had trouble getting up the hill. The hotel is small which gives it a family feel. Small restaurant but adequate. Pool is nice but the grounds are small. Each of the hotel rooms are different. We had a family2 bedroom which was huge and had all cooking facilities. Beds are good. Staff very friendly and accommodating. Booked most of our activities through them and had no problem. Also make sure you book your pick up from the airport through the hotel because it is quite an adventure getting there- short bus trip , then on to a very basic outrigger type boat, short bus trip again then on to another bus which takes you up to Tanawin. All done with no problems and make sure you have local money for tipping.

Change of pace hotel, away from the beachPosted Apr 4, 2014
Pros: Comfortable beds, big bathrooms/showers. Can cook in your own kitchen. Nice balcony views. Strong wifi connection. Shuttle to the beach area.
Cons: More comfortable, cleaner couches. Having TV's in the bedrooms. Less glare on living room TV, can barely see the picture during the day.
Location: It's really about getting away and having nice views. Shuttle makes beach access easy, although return shuttle can be a little chaotic if busy.
Stayed 3 nights by the beach and 3 nights at Tanawin. Was a little worried when we first got there, as we had just left a really nice hotel (Garden Boracay), and first impressions of Tanawin as you approach the "front desk" feels a bit like "what did we just get ourselves into?" Once we were inside our apartment, some of my concerns went away, as it was very spacious, clean and great views. However, the couches are very uncomfortable and dirty, and there is no TV in the bedrooms. We did enjoy the comfortable beds, nice big showers, and ability to cook in your own kitchen. My only other disappointment was the pool, it looks much nicer in the photos, but not very luxurious, no shallow end, only a kiddie pool, and not much in terms of shade relief. Not a true infinity pool. Distance from beach is overrated, shuttle makes it very convenient, just a 10 minute ride. Overall, it served it's purpose as a getaway from the beach hustle and bustle. It could be a lot better with a few simple improvements though.

깔끔한 숙소, 아쉬운 주변환경Posted Mar 31, 2014 on Hotels.com
숙소는 깔끔하고 좋으나, 숙소 내 편의 시설 외에는 따로 나가지 않으면 주변에는 아무것도 없음. 매 1시간마다 D mall로 셔틀 운행함에 따라, 주로 D Mall로 나가서 시간을 보냄
