My husband and I spent our honeymoon at Zoe Mei. I must say that the place is a paradise. It's quite, peaceful..so serene that I fall in love to the place. Our three day stay at the hotel was not enough. I felt at home away from home. The staff are very accommodating and helpful to our needs. They greeted as with a smile and attend to our needs with a smile. If I'll visit Boracay again I would definitely choose Zoe Mei again and again.
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.
I stayed here with my sister and nephew who's 15 months old for 2 nights. We loved the place and the staff. Our room is next to the swimming pool which i requested. The room is spacious and big. Overlooking a golf course. Room 2302 AC is leaking, needs to be fix. We also went to their private beach. Very clean water and nice sand. But need to wear a shoes because it is not that fine as the one in white beach. Food is okay. Nothing special and not that pricey. Staff are very nice, always smiling and helpful. I would go back to this Hotel.
Though Alta Vista is a bit far from all the action i would choose to stay at this hotel if i had to visit again. The service and respect i received is worth it to me. the only flaw was that there was no free WiFi in the room but then again you a probably on vacation so why do you need it? if anything they do have free WiFi in the lobby.
Amenities were great pool, spa, etc they even have a private beach they can take you to.They also Provide transportation to D-mall since they are a bit further and if you stay after 12am(which is when the last shuttle leaves) you can always just the bike services since they are 24 hrs(about 120 php). Now as far as in your room it is very clean and includes everything you would expect a room to include.
Overall i enjoyed my stay and they can expect my business if i ever find my way to Boracay.
I LOVED my stay at Hotel Soffia. I didn't want the crowds and the noise so I took a chance on Soffia. It was perfect for me. Yes, it was further away than most of the other hotels and not on the beach but I had great views, peaceful, quiet evenings, great food and the staff was really really nice. The coolest thing about Soffia was every hour on the hour the shuttle took whoever wanted to go down to D'Mall. This was a great service. And when you were finished on the main beach just be at the bus stop at D'Mall at :15 after the hour and the bus was there to take you back to Soffia! And... Soffia's location made it absolutely perfect for short trips to Puka Beach where it was way less crowded. I was much happier there than the overcrowded main beach where it was impossible to get that postcard shot of the sunset without 50 people in your picture.
Had a great time at the resort. Beaches were amazing and away from the busy D-Mall area. Many activities offered and spa was very relaxing. Restaurants a bit pricey, but well worth it- great food and great service. Staff was very friendly and went above and beyond to make you feel welcome. Can't say enough good things about our stay and would HIGHLY recommend it to anyone:)
