Some people might rate Villa Lourdes Resort as a one star or tourist class hotel. However, given all the stuff you can get from this resort and hotel, many will agree that it deserves a two star rating. Now, if you're not pretty particular about the level of luxury of an establishment but are looking for that personalized service then this resort does it all pretty well.
Villa Lourdes Resort also offers something truly unique to the visitors of the island in the form of an interesting location. D'Mall de Boracay is just a short distance away as well as the national road. The many different night life centers such as bars and restaurants are just a short walk away. All the stuff that you might need is just within your reach including the beach. It's pretty unique, like having a small country home surrounded by a lot of luxury destinations.
The facilities and service offerings of Villa Lourdes Resort are no less than competitive. The family that owns the resort actually lives within the bounds of the property and they are more than willing to run errands and get things done for you. The resort staff will be more than happy to make tour arrangements if needed. They also have currency exchange, laundry, massage, baby sitting, and wake up services.
There is also a safety deposit box at the front desk. The resort also offers room service though it is a bit limited. Another plus for this resort is the fact that you can bring your pets along to live with you here while on vacation in the island. Children below the age of six are free of charge.
The rooms are cozy and like many of the resorts and hotels on Boracay, they are made of native materials. The unfortunate thing is that the place only has four traditionally designed rooms at the moment. However, starting in May of 2011, they have begun making improvements on the property. Some rooms are being renovated while new rooms are being put up. The resort's makeover is estimated to be finished in a year's time.
Other than the cottage type rooms that is common to the island, Villa Lourdes Resort also offers standard air conditioned rooms. All rooms are decorated in the traditional Filipino style, equipped with a balcony, fans, and WiFi Internet. The cottage type rooms are cooled using fans and only have cold showers. However, they do have a double bed and is big enough for two guests.
Another type of room here in Villa Lourdes Resort is called the Fan Rom with Kitchen. Obviously, this room is a lot bigger than the standard cottage room since it can house up to four guests. These rooms have all the amenities of a standard cottage room but are equipped with a fridge and a working native-looking kitchen – now you can call that a treat.
If you're not too crazy about the fan and the hot tropical weather then the air conditioning in their Standard Rooms will be a welcome delight. These rooms have all the stuff you get from other rooms plus a hot shower. These rooms also have cable TV, which adds to the room's overall value. Room rates start at Php 700 (Cottage/Fan Room) during the low season and jumps up to a record high Php 4,200 (Standard Room for four guests) during the peak season.
As stated earlier, this resort has a rather unique location, which is right smack dab in the middle of all the action. If you're looking for great restaurants like Ole Spanish Restaurant or Aria Italian Restaurant then head out in the designated direction on foot. If you want to party at night then the various bars, like Red Pirates and Bom Bom Bar among others, are just a few steps away – just head right to where the party sounds are coming from, you can hardly miss it.
