Lazy Dog Bed and Breakfast Boracay : ETHT Hotel Review
Lazy Dog Bed and Breakfast Boracay was the hotel I stayed in during my trip to the island last August 2019.
Erik the Hungry Traveller will be rating the hotel based on their Facilities, Dining Experience, Customer Service and Location.
A perfect score for each category is 25% and since there are 4 categories … Well, you do the math on what the overall perfect score would be, okay?
So let’s dissect this Lazy Dog (err that came out wrong, no animals were armed in the creation of this post).
Take two! Read along as I break down what’s hot and what’s not with Lazy Dog Bed and Breakfast Boracay.
Facilities: 20 / 25
A word to describe the hotel is CHILL. It is huge property with tall trees and cabana type lounges all over the area. If you are looking for a less modern and more hippy vibe then this is the ideal hotel for you. The room I stayed in had bamboo stairs and a villa type room. Inside the room are your basic amenities: the bed, a television and toilet/ bath with toiletries. In terms of creativity and uniqueness this was a check mark for me.
Since it’s a property covered with Flora then expect some fauna thriving in the area as well. And no I’m just not talking about their 2 fat dogs and cat roaming around the property. I’m referring to the not so nice- okay they aren’t nice at all … Mosquitoes.
The place was thriving with those annoying and possibly deadly bugs. Upon entering my room it felt like they were my welcome party.
So unless you want to get Dengue fever then I suggest you bring along with you some mosquito repellant. Or you can buy them at the local stores on the Island- they don’t sell it at the hotel which is quiet unfortunate.
Another downside with my room is that their television was broken. The screen only displays black and white color. It was not a total downer for me as I had no intention to just sulk in my room but best that I point it out to my Hungry Travelers.
Dining Experience: 22/25
My accommodation comes with free breakfast for two. Breakfast meals have options ranging from the typical Filipino meals to American staple breakfast meals. The advantage of traveling solo? I got to order 2 meals each day! Hey, I’m not about to be ripped off with what i paid for (lol).
Portions were huge and even with the single meal I was already full. I could not say that their food was exceptional but it was not also bad.
I am a coffee lover so any hotel that would give me instant coffee on their restaurant I would throw a fit at. Fortunately Lazy Dog Bed and Breakfast have theirs brewed.
Serving time for your orders was less than 10 minutes on both days I stayed at the hotel – and yes I timed it.
This probably would be a matter of taste preference. But if you know your pancakes too well then you’d be heavily disappointed with theirs.
As I said their meals are not really restaurant quality but it is not also awful.
So overall Erik the Hungry Traveller was satisfied with the dining experience at Lazy Dog Bed and Breakfast.
Customer Service: 23/25
A good customer experience is extremely important for me. The service that Lazy Dog Bed and Breakfast is what I expect. With that being said…
What Lazy Dog Bed and Breakfast lacked is the foresight of attending to the needs of the guests.
Mosquitoes in your room is a big no no so it would have been a good customer experience if they sprayed clean those bugs before guests arrived or at least provided an insect replant lotion as part of their toiletries.
For those planning to go on Island hopping tours, scuba dive or do other water activities then Lazy Dog Bed and Breakfast is the hotel for you.
Boracay is known for its white sand beach and Lazy Dog Bed and Breakfast is far from where the white beach is. Yes, there are motorcycles that you can rent to get there but you have to pass a busy street with road constructions and not well lit alleys. If you are a beach person who wants to lounge at the beach front and just relaxed then this is not the hotel for you.
I am not entirely a beach person but I love chilling at the shoreline doing nothing. So yeah, the location of the hotel was not beneficial for me.
Lazy Dog Bed and Breakfast Rating: 83/100
I paid 2950.82 PHP/ 56 USD for a 2 night stay with breakfast for two. That for me is a good deal.
Below is the summary of the good and bad points of Lazy Dog Bed and Breakfast Hotel Boracay.
- Chill vibe- plenty of trees and areas outdoor to relax in
- Cute Dogs and a Cat
- Huge Food portions during breakfast
- Good customer service
- Mosquitoes everywhere
- If you’re not a fan of dogs and cats then don’t go here
- Location is far from the White Beach
