Sunset behind Willy's Rock, Boracay Island, the Philippines' most popular beach resort. The island is flat and small and is basically just a beach, but has the best restaurants and the most overpriced hotel rooms in the country, if not all of southeast Asia. Typical philippino grandiose hotel name:
Grand Excelsior Suites Resort and Spa (not the name of a hotel I stayed in, the name is ficticious)
When you book online you can't imagine how such a place can cost only $50 per night. The photos look amazing, how can all the online reviews be so bad???? Quick explanation below:
Excelsior.....hints of excellence, but means they have more than 5 rooms
Suites....meaning one room has a fridge, may not be functional
Resort....meaning has a non functioning pool covered with dead leaves
Spa....meaning one of the cleaning staff can give a quick massage.
But hey.... every bus station in the Philippines is a "Spa"!!
