Azalea is a mid-range hotel that’s centrally located along the main road in Station 2, Boracay. In this review I’ll cover the place in detail…
Among other topics, I’ll discuss its main charms, its location details, its highlight worthy amenities, the best rooms, how to contact them, plus I’ll also cover both its pros and cons.
Once read you should have a very good idea of what to expect, and if it’s the right place to stay for you.
About Azalea and Its Location
Although Azalea Hotel is located along the Station 2’s main road , it’s still just a 5-minute walk away from the powdery sands of White Beach. D’Mall is also about 5 minutes away on foot. Overall it’s a decent option to consider if you like to be close to the action, as it’s relatively centrally located.
If you’re traveling in a big group or considering a long stay, Azalea can also be a good choice. You can pick from basic rooms, or 1-3 bedroom suites sleeping up to 8, all spacious and equipped with kitchenettes where you can prepare your own meals.
What the hotel can improve on is its Wi-Fi connection and attached restaurant. Although the Wi-Fi is free, the connection is rather slow at times. Also, the restaurant gets packed in the morning when the breakfast buffet is served, though there are many other options for breakfast a short walk away.
- Huge room capacities great for families and groups
- Close to the center and easy access to the main road
- Good room amenities such as kitchenettes
- Slow Wi-Fi and a busy breakfast area
Highlight Worthy Amenities
One of the highlights of Azalea Boracay is the hotel’s rooftop pool. The pool is quite big, with a shallow end for children, and it overlooks the town out towards the sea. There are also deck chairs around the pool so you can lounge on a lazy afternoon.
Another amenity worth highlighting is the kitchenette, available in all rooms and suites. The kitchenettes come with a microwave oven, electric cooktop, kettle, cutlery and pots and pans upon request – everything you need to make your own dinner.
If you’re not up for cooking yourself, the hotel’s restaurant, Kuya J, also offers room service. The restaurant also serves a simple free buffet breakfast daily, as well as Filipino cuisine throughout the day.
My 2 Room Recommendations
If a reasonably priced hotel room is all you’re looking for, the Deluxe Roomis a good choice. It sleeps up to 3 with a convertible sofa bed, and has a kitchenette so you won’t miss out on the convenience of cooking.
For those traveling in big groups, have a look at the 3 Bedroom Suite. This apartment suite is very spacious, sleeping up to 8, and has separate dining and living areas in addition to the kitchenette.
What Guests Say and My Take
At the time of writing Azalea is rated 8.3 on Agoda, 8.2 on Booking.com; and 4 out of 5 on TripAdvisor, which is a moderately high rating.
Personally, I think Azalea Boracay is a decent mid-ranged choice for big groups or travelers on long stays, but aren’t planning to stay indoors a lot and don’t mind sharing spaces. The location is also pretty good if you’re planning to experience the Boracay nightlife at Station 2.
