I soooooooo love it.Once you enter and insert your key, a beautifully furnished room will greet you. It's strategically lit to give the utmost romantic feel.King sized canopy bed and a luxurious bathroom set behind wooden folding doors, Contemporary Filipino design with Mediterranean touches. Yeah, the bathroom extension with the accent just above the bath tub is a thing of beauty.Perfect for honeymooners.
Well, I got married more than a year ago and honeymoon stage is definitely over but this place makes me crave for another round.It's located on the ground floor of the hotel so it's also good for lazy people like me. Five steps outside your door and you are in the pool, a few more cartwheels and you are in the White Beach. If you are the party type and loves to drink till you crawl back to your room----the poolside room is the perfect choice.hahaha

This in house restaurant of BORACAY MANDARIN ISLAND HOTEL is one of the best in the place. In fact, it was awarded Philippines Best Restaurants 2011 by ASIATATLER Dining.
DON VITO RISTORANTE ITALIANO prides itself in its wooden baked pizza, Italian dishes and wines. Not only that, they also offer an abundance of seafood and salad dishes.
It was here where we had our meals.The parade of salads, pizza, pasta and desserts satisfied my taste buds. The Don Vito's Special and the Giardinera Pizza are not to be missed. If you are a pasta lover, I would suggest you try Fetuccine Don Vito or the Classic Spaghetti with Meatballs. And what about Don Vito Gelato for dessert?
I will make a separate entry about DON VITO one of these days and will detail the food we were served.

In my case, my wife asked me to go in front and dance but I was too shy. I thought ordering a few cocktails would loosen me a bit but failed. I was just thumping my feat while glued to my seat.hahaha.I got a bit tipsy and that's it. I prefer not moving a lot when I drink so I just listened and had conversations with fellow bloggers.
My wife preferred to walk along the beach so I accompanied her. We walked for a few minutes and then went back to our room for a very sound sleep. Woke up 7am the next day.
The HOTEL TOUR
We were given a rare chance to look inside the rooms and amenities of the hotel the next day. I am happy to share to you some the photos I took and I will be writing extensively again about the rooms and room rates soon. This post is indeed a work in progress. Will update with the links as soon as they are available.:)
BORACAY MANDARIN ISLAND HOTEL is strategically located in station-2, just 5minutes south of Dmall, the center of it all.It's a beach front hotel so it's just a few steps away from the world famous white sands of Boracay.
My wife and I went on an early morning swim for almost an hour. Enjoyed the clear water and the soft sand on our feet. We wanted to swim longer but breakfast was waiting so we had to go back and shower. Again, one of the shortest most memorable swim we had. The sun was and the sea temperature was not too cold for a morning dip. Before entering the room, we dipped in the pool for a few minutes first. Love it!!
After freshening up, we had the longest breakfast ever. Had fun and intelligent conversation with the bloggers we were with. Talking to food bloggers made me learn a lot of stuff. It was nice being around food bloggers like Fran and Richard who I met for the first time.
Our stay in BORACAY MANDARIN ISLAND HOTEL was short but memorable. Fun, filling,relaxing.And I am very glad my wife was with me. The place is perfect and it's best shared with loved ones.YES, our short stay in Boracay Mandarin Hotel was one of the best 30 hours of my life.
