The Casa Pilar Beach Resort in Boracay

The Casa Pilar Beach Resort in Station 3, Boracay was a welcome respite to the summer crowds of the island. The resort is mostly composed of native structures but did not lack modern amenities. Guests may choose from a variety of room types ranging from Fan rooms, Standard, Superior and DeLuxe. A total of 69 rooms are sprawled across the vast property, giving guests ample space and privacy.

During the time when we made our reservations, we were told that the DeLuxe rooms were fully-booked, so we "settled" for a Superior room. We were assured that the room and bed sizes were similar and that the only difference was a refrigerator in the DeLuxe room.

While it was a tight squeeze for our family, having 2 adults and kids ages 15, 11 and 7, we more than managed with the room. We were quite contented with the air-conditioner, cable television, hot and cold shower and WiFi internet (shameless plug!). What was a bit of a hassle though was the absence of room service as there were no house phones inside the rooms so we had to walk all the way to the restaurant at the entrance of the hotel for our morning requisite cup of coffee. We took our cups back to the porch outside our room (which was about a 3 minute walk) and enjoyed the serenity of the resort. 

I must say that the staff's courteous and friendly demeanor, not to mention their patience with us, was commendable as our girls left the key inside the room on 2 instances.

Breakfast was basic, with Filipino and Continental types to choose from. We loved the tocino (cured pork) which was on the sweet side and perfect for our girls. 

The bar and restaurant was open until about midnight, and the staff set up tables and chairs by the beach at night where local artists played the acoustics to entertain some of the guests.

For budget-conscious travelers who wish to savor the slow and laid-back pace of Station 3, Casa Pilar Beach Resort is a nice and excellent choice as it offers a spacious sanctuary with traditional Filipino cottages combined with the warm Filipino brand of hospitality.

We used to stay in Casa Pilar whenever we get to Boracay. We're always enjoying our accomodation here especially having your breakfast in the restaurant overlooking the beachfront.
