Boracay On A Budget – Part 4 (Moreno’s Cottages Boracay)

I was in Boracay for a total of 5 days but I only got to stay in G Suites Boracay for the first 3 nights since all their rooms were already occupied. For our last night in Boracay, I decided to look for another place that is cheaper than G Suites. I figured that it wouldn’t matter if the room isn’t as nice since it’s already the last night. I checked out Agoda for other resorts/hotels located in Station 3 and I came across Moreno’s Cottages.

An air-conditioned room in Moreno’s Cottages is just around Php1,000 and what I initially liked about it was that each room has an outdoor seating area which is perfect especially for those who like to smoke.

One thing I didn’t mention in my previous posts though is that on my first day in Boracay, something happened that made my vacation a not-so-pleasant one. I remember I was inside Astoria Boracay’s function room listening to a staff talk about Club Astoria Holiday Ownership when the sole of my left foot started getting itchy. On our 2nd day, it became itchier that I just couldn’t stop scratching it. When I woke up the following day, I noticed several bumps on the sole of my foot and it became too painful to the touch. Since the 3rd day of my vacation, I could no longer walk straight. It took us more time to go places because I had to walk as slowly as possible so as not to trigger more pain. Now, imagine my dismay when I found out that Moreno’s Cottages was even farther than G Suites Boracay. 😦

It is true that Moreno’s Cottages is very near the beach. In fact, it will only take you about 2 minutes walk to get to the beach but the problem is that it’s location in Station 3 is quite far. To make it even worse, the room that was given to us was located on the 3rd floor. I guess that was just my luck!

When we got to the room, I was initially not very delighted with how the room looked because the beds didn’t look relaxing at all. But after several minutes of being inside the room, I realized that it was actually a good value for money because it was spacious enough and it even has 2 double beds so it can fit 4 adults or 2 adults and 2 kids.

Their bathroom is big too so moving around the shower area won’t be a problem. There are no curtains in the shower area but I didn’t mind since we only had to stay for 1 night.  They have also provided 1 tissue roll and a sachet of “shampoo and conditioner”-in-one but I’m not sure if they do replenish this daily or if it’s just given upon check-in.

The room has a cable-ready TV and, for some reason, the room has a lot of hooks all over the place too.

The room is equipped with a mini refrigerator but is located in the balcony area. Together with the refrigerator, you’ll also find 2 wooden chairs, a small table with some artificial flowers and a shell on top (for decoration purposes), and 2 strings for you to hang your wet clothes.

Moreno’s Cottages provides free WIFI connection but when I tried the password that was posted on their note, it didn’t work. Also, unlike other hotels/resorts, Moreno’s Cottages will only replace your bed sheets and towels every after 4 days. If you want it to be changed on a daily basis, there will be an extra charge for that.

All in all, I thought it wasn’t that bad at all. In fact, if I have not had the pleasure of experiencing vacation in luxury, I would have been contented with this place. The bottom line is that you have to figure out what is more important for you. If you are looking to spend more on food and activities but not so much on accommodation then might as well consider Moreno’s Cottages on your next visit to Boracay. 🙂

  4. Should have went there 10 – 15 years ago. No fastfood restaurants. No over the top resorts. Going to the the island used to be just beaching the boats in the beach in the three stations and use a wooden plank to go off the boat which always gets the tourist feet and legs wet first thing on the island.

    • That would have been nice to see… too many stuff going on in Boracay now.. I don’t mind really but it would have been great to experience something different too…
