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.

Here’s a rough map I made to help you find the place. The guesthouses are located about 1-3 minutes walk from the beach and is also close to many bars and resturant.

  • Hi Senyor Lakwatsero, Thanks so much for providing vacation-lovers like us with these very helpful information.. I’ve in imbroglio for the past days searching for the contact number of Jejjsellends where we stayed few years ago in Boracay until I found your blog. But sad to say that I cannot contact them with this number you gave, nevertheless, I still have other options for cheap hotels.. Namili na lang kami ng husband ko sa mga listahan mo.. You are indeed an angel! God bless!!!

  • Thanks for the info Senyor! Yung Tans GH din ung nababasa ko from other blogs, ok lang sa akin ung kahit walang wifi since di naman kami magdadala ng any gadgets on our trip, mahirap na.

    Pero I’ve seen Eriko’s site rin, ok narin naman pala eh. :) Basta either sa dalawa, ang importante may matutulugan.

    And oh, thanks for the map ahh! heheehe.

    • Hi Sashi we’ve stayed at Tan’s guest house this first week of January 2013, Senyor Lakwatsero’s contact information really helped a lot. They offered us welcome drinks (mango shake)for free.. It was a fun experience.

    • that’s great…sa room ba pwede maka connect or sa rooftop pa?
      at wow may welcome drinks na pala sila ngayon ah! nako dyan nalang ako sa Tans this April!! kasama ko family ko. naka inquire na ako sa kanila eh, they quoted me 3k per night. hihihi! :) Yun lang di pa ako nakakapag paid ng half kasi wala pa akong makitang airfare seat sale eh. gusto ko kasi makatipid ako lalo na’t treat ko ang aking family. pero atleast 10k budget for airfare ok na…pero much better kung less pa diba! :) thanks for the info Fernique!

      btw, ano nga paa yung nababasa ko sa iba na Tans namaste? yung extension daw ng Tans? yun ata yung building na mas maganda yung rooms eh based sa mga nakikita ko online.

  • @Andre may good for 10 ata ang Tans GH with kitchen na. Actually may small resto sila na mura ang mga bilihin P85 inclusive of rice, viand and ice tea na…
