The Boac Hotel: I Found It Homey

After checking out of Bellaroca, we took a tricycle and a jeepney going to Boac. we had reservations here at The Boac Hotel which is think is the most decent hotel in town. It was a Sunday, almost all establishments are closed except for the church, the gift shop and the hippest restaurant at the plaza.

Upon arrival, we were given a glass of iced tea as a welcome drink and each of us gets a fan {I chose the green one}.

The history, rich culture and the traditions of this small town are the first thing you will notice upon entrance in the lobby as well as in the interior design of the hotel, giving it the ambience of a cozy old home. If you’re on the coward side, it might give you a little bit of a “bahay-ni-lola” feel or haunted hotel feel. Nevertheless, I found it homey.

I love this chandelier! It reminds me of the scene in Coraline where in she had dinner in the “other mother’s” house and the other mother was trying to lure her with a lavish spread. Different flavors of smoothies were served in a “chandelier-like” container like this. It automatically went down so Coraline can get a glass of smoothie.

We got this Family Deluxe room for P2,000. It has two double beds, an a/c, a bathroom, towels, soap and shampoo. The bathroom was really small but there was a water heater. What you can see for yourself is what you get. It is a really small room!

I chose the bed farthest from the door because it’s near the a/c.

This is what you will see when you walk outside of the room. There’s a lounging are and on the right side was the stairs. Yup, our room was on the second floor.

The hotel’s restaurant is called Cafe Ma’Mita. That’s where we had lunch upon arrival and breakfast the next day. There’s also a small store there that sells souvenirs and native products such as the popular and delicious Arrowroot cookies. They also sell key chains, shirts and bowls made from coconut shells.
