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.
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.
The staff is very friendly. The place is right on the beach with a very beautiful scenic view of the sunset and mountaintop resort situated close to a beautiful sea-side jogging pathway excellent for early morning walk. It is far from the busy noise of tricycle traffic and they offer free shuttle ride to and pick up from the shops and restaurants. It's worth more than your money, I'll go back to the place again on my next visit to Boracay.
