In addition to travel arrangements, another common concern when going to Boracay is where to stay during all vacations. You may want to stay a few days on the island without the hassle of paying too expensive accommodation. Because there are many foreign tourists in Boracay, large investors have strategically placed hotels with rates that are undoubtedly affordable for international guests. However, for locals like you, finding cheap accommodation can become the most pressing dilemma of your trip.
Some useful tips
One of the best ways to get cheap accommodation in Boracay is to take advantage of rates outside peak hours. Try to avoid booking at resorts during the summer season or holidays because these are times when prices generally skyrocket.
The smartest way to do this is to plan ahead and reserve a specific date for your holiday in Boracay. When making reservations, find out about the low season rates of your preferred resort. Better yet, visit their website to get their price list. It would also be a good idea to compare rates with those of other resorts to see which one suits you best at a price you can afford.
It also helps if you have a local Aklan or Boracay that travels with you. Surprisingly, some resorts will grant discounts by mentioning that you or your companion live in the area. Usually, they don't advertise this, but some resorts have local rates that they offer to residents of Boracay or Aklan. Sometimes, the benefits are offered in the form of complementary products, such as food and beverages, among others.
Some cheap hotels you can try
One of the cheap hotels you can try in Boracay is Casa Camilla Boracay. Located at boat station 3, Casa Camilla Boracay gives you convenient access to the famous white sand beach of Boracay.
Another popular option is M.R. Holidays Hotel. With 13 rooms in total and 2-floor accommodation, M.R. Holidays is also a stone's throw from the beach.
If you don't mind having to walk before reaching the beach to save on accommodation, you can visit the Fat Jimmy complex. The complex is near the boat station 2. Although it is farther from the beach than the first two hotels mentioned, Fat Jimmy has all the basic amenities you will need during your stay.
Another low budget option is JMBS Cottages. Like Fat Jimmy, you would have to sacrifice yourself to have a view of the white sand beach. JMBS Cottages has rooms with air conditioning or electric fans, which gives you the option to save even more.
Another recommended indoor complex is Freckles Resort and Bamboo Lounge. It is only a few minutes walk from the beach of Bulabog.
