While I was looking in the internet for a cheap room to stay in Boracay that would cost around P1,000-P1,500, I chanced upon Tan’s Guesthouse located in boat station 2. I read a lot of very positive feedback from its’ previous guests online so I put it on the top of my list of budget accomodation to check out when I get there.
Upon arrival at Boracay port, we were approached by a local lady asking us if we had already reserved a room to stay in the island. Normally, I would say yes, just so agents would stop bothering us and leave us alone immediately. But the lady seemed very nice and she mentioned that she was just there to help tourists to find a place to stay at no extra charge. So I told her, we planned to stay at Station 2 and we wanted to check out the rooms at Tan’s Guesthouse. She offered to take us there. Since I only have a few information on finding the guesthouse, I thought it would be best to have someone who knows the way to accompany us. This would save us time.
We rode a tricycle and stopped at the D’Mall. From there, we walked all the way to the beach path and then turned left. We continued to walk passing by Mango Ray Cottages on the left, and then just after E. Pascual Store, and right before 928 Cafe and Grill, we turned left again and walked into an alley where a cluster of budget accomodations are located. Once you get here, you would have no problem looking for a room to stay. Chances are, since there are many to choose from, you would surely find one that would best suit your personal needs and preferences. At the far end of the alley is Tan’s Guesthouse. We would have wanted to stay at Tan’s, but since I was looking for a room with WIFI access, I opted to stay at Erico’s House instead. We were told, for reason I’m not so sure of, that the room that was available for us at Tan’s Guesthouse had no access to their WIFI.
