Other Things to Note
You will truly enjoy this luxury resort!
We use our condo once a year and hope you will enjoy this beautiful place. Please be respectful of our place, keep clean and no smoking inside.
Please turn off AirCon and electricity when leaving room.
The room was nice and is exactly as the photos were. Downside was that the cleaners only came about once in 2 days and the towels and bedsheets were not prepared for us but we helped ourselves as the towels and bedsheets were in the cupboard. Microwave seems to be broken - didn't seem to heat up. The keeper asked for a photo ID which I was rather reluctant to give since it's my nationality ID and wouldn't make do with a copied version of my ID. The views were spoilt by the recent development in the mountains.
Thank You Alysaa for the review and I am glad you like the room. Thank you for letting me know of the microwave and I will inform caretaker to take care of it and preparing bedding. It's rule of the resort to keep ID to ensure return of key, thank you for your understanding.
Best place to stay if you want to stay away from the noise & crowded White Beach. Clean loft, superb airconditioning unit, lots of extras (utensils, microwave, towels, etc). Child friendly resort with nice playroom. My only wish is for the resort to upgrade their 'restaurant'. Its nice that they have a restaurant there since there are no nearby establishments (unless you order for delivery from fastfood or take out food from White Beach and then warm it up using the microwave) however, its not worth the money especially for the taste. The staff are very helpful and greetful. I love the quick access to Puka Beach wherein they have a private place to stay.
My experience at Sherfog's Condo in Alta Vista was absolutely great. The condo itself was very roomy and had everything you needed to enjoy your stay there in Boracay. Sherfog is an outstanding hostess, if there were any problems she responded quickly and handles every situation professionally. The resort itself sits high on the island and his outstanding views the staff there was always polite and willing to help. The restaurant at the resort was okay but you will definitely find everything you need further down the road at D'mall. The main lobby is where you have to go to use Wi-Fi should you need it, I would say that would probably be the only inconvenience. The condo is cleaned every other day and your provided with plates, microwave, refrigerator, towels, fresh linenand plenty of closet space should you need to hang things up.I would absolutely love to stay at Sherfog's Condo at this resort should I ever get the opportunity to again.
Back from a 10 day stay at Sherfong's place at Altavista. Here's our review of the accommodation and Boracay more generally:
Clean, functional and comfortable place to stay. As a family we enjoyed being away from the crowds at White Beach.
Can sleep 6, although I'd say more comfortable for 4.
Plenty of hot water and air con works well (wasn't always needed during our stay as not too hot outside).
Pleasant balcony to relax on, but view overlooks new development.
Staff at Altavista are great - friendly and helpful.
Pool is nice - wasn't too crowded most of the time. Surprisingly cool water.
Shuttle to D'Mall and Puka Beach work well and are frequent enough (50 pesos per day - unlimited trips). If you miss the shuttle you can easily get a tricycle to anywhere on the island.
Restaurant at Altavista is good - although a lot more choice and better value in town. Breakfast is just OK.
Boracay / general tips:
To get to Altavista is easy enough independently, although we used Southwest Tours who do a door-to-door service from Caticlan or Kalibo airports. Recommended if travelling with kids to save hassle.
Boracay is packed during holidays, although the beach is large enough to accommodate. Puka Beach never seems to be busy - really relaxing place.
Flights are often delayed and boats services are busy. Bad weather can really impact your travel plans so factor this in, especially with international flight connections from Manila.
Recommend you buy a local SIM with data package rather than relying on wifi if being online is important for you.
Due to unforeseen bad weather typhoon Ruby, we decided not to proceed with our vacation as a safety precaution.
Sherfong is a very good host, understanding and considerate! She allowed to re book our stay on end of January! :)
Thanks a lot Sherfong for your kindness!
Merry Christmas and Prosperous 2015 to you and your family!
God bless you more!
We enjoyed our vacation at Alta Vista.
We were first disappointed of the view, as the condo now faces a construction site (they've shaved a huge piece of land to build perhaps another resort) and wifi was only available in the hotel lobby, less than a min uphill walk from the condo. Wifi in the room was apparently available at a charge but it was broken during our stay.
With 50 pesos/person/day a shuttle bus is available to White Beach, so we spent most of the time there. Plenty of restaurants/bars, tour centers, and places to buy groceries from. Restaurant at Alta Vista isn't the greatest so recommend eating out or cooking yourself (though kitchen has no stove, but you can get creative with a microwave). Housekeeping comes every other day and linen laundry per request. The condo is kept very clean.
We had an amazing time at Sherfongs place. The resort was very nice. The room was clean and the air conditioners worked great. There were some ants but that is to be expected when you are practically in the jungle. We paid for the shuttle to take us to pukka beach which is a very quiet beach much better than white beach if you want to be away from tourist stuff. Alta Vista had chairs there and towels for you. I highly recommend Sherfong as a host as she always replied to my messages in a timely matter. When we got there the water wasn't working and she called the resort right away to turn it on. We can't wait to return to Boracay and rent from Sherfong again!
We love to travel and make new friends. Boracay is our favorite island and we want to share our condo at Alta Vista de Boracay with travelers. We hope you will enjoy this beautiful place as much as we do.
