Boutique hotel right on the beach
Posted Nov 8, 2011
The Crown Regency appears to be one of the newest properties on White Beach, the top tourist spot in Boracay. It is at the quieter end of White Beach but only a short walk away from all the nightlife. The public areas of the property are unimpressive and the restaurant is tiny, but this is hardly an issue as White Beach is the dining and drinking epicentre of the island. The penthouse room we stayed in was huge - it could probably have been marketed as a junior suite. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was adequate with all the amenities you would expect at this pricepoint. I was a little disappointed that there was no balcony (the standard rooms all have small balconies) and no view, but again, relatively few properties in White Beach offer beachviews, and in 30 seconds' walk you are on the beach anyway. One positve of this is that the room was very quiet. On balance I would probably stay there again if the price was right, but there are several other properties I would probably choose first if the availability was there.
