“Seouled out”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 June 2012

We booked an airport transfer with the hotel from Caticlan. Picked up at airport by a luxurious minibus operated by Southwest tours and taken to the main jetty. This part of the journey was a shambles as we were dumped off in a waiting area with no spare seats and had to endure a crush with parties of Koreans for almost an hour during which there was no information forthcoming.Eventually a guy shouted out the name of our hotel and we were near enough to hear it above the general hub bub. We were then taken by bus to a different ferry as the waves and queues were too great at the main one. The subsequent ferry ride was much longer than the planned one and the whole episode was a stressful and time wasting prelude to our holiday.
Jony's is located near Station 1 on the famous White Beach. The residential block is separated from the beach by a busy highway but in practice this is not a problem as a member of staff assists in halting the traffic. Moreover the rooms are relatively well insulated from the din of tricycles. Our room was on the second floor. There is no lift and the stairs are rather narrow but the room was really pleasant, clean and spacious with double bed, 32 inch flat screen TV and a cosy balcony for eating breakfast or admiring the partial sea view. The hotel's beach restaurant provided a good choice of local and international dishes. The complimentary breakfast was a little sparse but the scrambled egg was one of the tastiest I have sampled in the Philippines. There were magnificent sea views and the beach itself, with sun beds and chairs, is just five steps sway. The main shopping area at D'Mall is a gentle walk or 10 peso ride away and there you can find a supermarket and several souvenir shops.
The hotel staff are really warm and welcoming. From the way that they greet you with a strawberry shake as you clamber out of the minibus on arrival to the way that they volunteer to take photos of you as a couple they seem very attentive and genuinely eager to please.
The short holiday ended on a very positive note. On the return transfer there was a flight cancellation from a group of Koreans meaning that we were the only passengers on the Southwest ferry boat going back to Caticlan.
Summing up I am pleased that we sampled Boracay. The beach deserved its 2011 number 2 ranking in the world. But if you want peaceful scenery and solitude go to Palawan. Several years ago Boracay took the decision to allow an expansion in hotel construction and the general commercialization of the island. So you are never too far away from the disco bars.
.Now every other young person from Seoul seems to want a piece of the action.!!!

Room Tip: 2nd floor rooms are ideal. Better view of the sea than ground floor and not so many steps to climb a...

My friend and I spent 3 nights at Jony's beach resort. It was an excellent and pleasant stay. The resort is strategically located at Station 1, White Beach. It is away from noise of the clubs and bars yet it is close to all the main attractions. It is walking distance to the market, shopping stretch on the beach. The staffs are just great people. They are friendly, cheerful, helpful and lovely people. Some may complain the breakfast selection is limited but to me they offer what is necessary for you to kick your day a start. I would definitely recommend this resort to anyone who is visiting Boracay. It is just marvelous. Thanks for a great hospitality, Jony's Beach Resort. I will definitely stay back in this resort of I ever come back again.

On our last trip to Boracay, I proposed to my beloved. Now we are back after 2 years of marriage. This time we brought the family. We were SO impressed when we got to our room. The rooms look absolutely brand new. Our rooms were so clean! The tile floors are sparkling. And then there is the New bathroom with a big gorgeous tiled tub that invites you to just sink in and relax! The water is hot and the water pressure is as good as I've found anywhere.
The happy surprises kept coming when I tasted the delicious (and free!) breakfast. All the members of our group were delighted with their selection. You can choose anything on their expanded menue and it is included with your room.
As most everyone says, the staff here are just fantastic. They even have staff stop traffic and see you safely across the street to their beachfront restaurant. The view from that restaurant is nothing short of breathtaking in the morning when the ocean is made of soft greens and blues or at sunset when the tropical skies light up like something from a dream.
I was also very impressed that the reservation coordinator, Ms Rev Maglinte remembered us from our stay 3 years ago and was just as nice now as she was then. Today she and the staff went out of their way to help me give a surprise mothers day gift to my wife and mother to be.
I would suggest to anyone to choose Jony's when visiting Boracay. There is really nothing that I would change.

Its my 2nd time to stay @Jony's and I m not disappointed..i am glad that they maintained their "homey" touch- quiet and neat. The friendliness of the people @ Jony's are priceless ...if there's one reason for me to go back to Jony's, it's their warmth in dealing with their guests..

The location of Jony's is reasonably far from the noise of Station 2 but near enough for a fun stroll going to D'mall & other restos...
There were days that we just stayed @ Jony's by the beach to enjoy the sunset and my kids suuuuuppper enjoyed their milk shakes and nacho grande!!!


It's all worth it!!.. Thanks Jony's
