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.
Friendly staff upon check-in. Wonderful time staying with the hotel eventhough it's was bad weather week. Staffs are very helpful and friendly. Despite the wet weather and strong winds, staffs are still as cheerful.
The hotel shuttle service is very thoughtful for all the guest.
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 would have to admit, I rarely provide reviews unless I've had an amazing experience. I'm a strong believer of praises, not punishment but I also think bad reviews should be provided directly to the Hotel and not on a review site as it can be very subjective.
The hotel upon approach was stunning! So well designed and we were welcomed with a beautiful shell necklace by the staff. They organized the transfers with ease to and from Caticlan airport. This was something I appreciated.
The staff were courteous at all times and it wasn't hard for my mother and I to tip them everytime they assisted us.
Arturo was a pleasure to chat too. He is truly a welcoming and possibly the most relaxed hotel manager I've ever encountered.
The apartment was clean and the size for the price I paid for was outstanding. The bathroom had full facilities and even consisted of free toiletries and an extra set of toilet paper, which is lack in most hotels in the Philippines. The balcony allowed ample breeze to enjoy the natural surrounds of Boracay. This is truly the best part, is opening the balcony doors to allow the fresh air to come in. After staying a week and a half in Manila, fresh air is a commodity. I also loved how the shower had full pressure and we were on the second floor.
Food was OUTSTANDING! The selection of Authentic Philippine cuisine really stood out.
The shuttle transfers to and from White beach was fantastic!
We had a very pleasant stay at the hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful. It felt very homely and nice. The beach is just a step away and it was lovely. Clear water and peaceful surroundings. A very wonderful place.
