BORACAY! Flights are booked, so now, where do we stay?
Being first-time visitors of the famed Boracay Island, it was quite difficult trying to find a decent yet affordable place to stay at. Although high rated hotels were widely available across the stations, we opted to look into boutique, hole in the wall type of hotels to make the visit more local and authentic. Throughout our search, we were lucky enough to score a few nights at Second Wind Bed, Bunk & Breakfast, which was as we later found out, perfect for newbies like us.
We arrived at Second Wind at around 10pm on Monday May 9th from Kalibo airport via SouthWest transfers (which were awesome btw! Very well organised.) and all the stress from the delayed flight, bus, and boat rides immediately went away the moment we stepped inside.
The common area consists of a self-service kitchen and a long wooden dining table and chairs. The utensils are there for everyone’s use as long as you clean up after yourselves.
They have a TV set here as well as being the focal point of the hostel’s free wi-fi. The free breakfast from 8-10am is also served here for all the guests to enjoy together.
As we were first-timers in Boracay, Second Wind was conveniently situated along Bulabog Road in Station 2 was just a 5 minute walk from the commercial and shopping center known as D’mall, which leads straight into White Beach. A few convenience stores are also just a few steps away for your everyday needs. Also, the best-selling Jonah’s fruitshake restaurant on the main road is just a stone’s throw away!
What I actually loved the most about the room was their beds and pillows. As their manager Gel (Hey girl!), had told us, “we pride ourselves for our beds” and rightly so!
You wouldn’t think of them as a simple bed and breakfast the moment you lie down and feel it for yourself. It’s nearly as comfortable as a 5-star hotel’s bed! Overall, this Bed, Bunk & Breakfast is perfect if you’re up for a cozy, comfortable, homey and laid back vacation vibe!
