TAJ Guesthouse Boracay

Friday, October 05, 2012

I consider myself lucky because everytime I plan a trip, there are people who ALWAYS want to join. More travel buddies means less travel cost. Right? :)

I initially planned to book with White Beach Divers Hostel. Their fan room costs 500php per night and it is good for two. Since we were 6 in the group, I inquired if they have a family room. I sent an email and got a response from them. Unfortunately, they cannot accomodate us so I had to find another. 
Family room
Since I recently embraced the concept of budget travel, I immediately checked the blog of the AUTHORITY in budget travel Journeying James. He provided a detailed list of cheap accommodation in Boracay.
spacious room
I sent an email to TAJ and received a quick response. The family room costs 3,000php per night(low season). We were 6 in the group so that is 500php/pax. The room has 2 double beds and 2 single beds. Towels are also being provided. That is a plus point for me because I hate bringing towels when I travel. Mabigat kasi sa bag.

When we arrived in Boracay(Sept.27), we immediately walked around to find TAJ. It's pretty much easy to find because they are located in Station 2. Just a few steps away from the beach. 
very clean comfort room
Guess what I checked first when I got the keys? Of course the comfort room. I am allergic to a filthy comfort room. Allergic talaga. Chos. But look at the photo above, it's pretty clean right? The room is pretty basic but CLEAN. The linens and sheets are fine. The AC unit is working perfectly. The mini ref is also working. Basically, ALL IS GOOD :)
I love the LCD TV :)

Will I recommend TAJ? 
Yes, definitely. We stayed there for 4 days and we did not encounter any problems. The room has everything we need except a mini kitchen but that's fine because we eat out most of the time. We paid 9,000php for 3 nights, that is 1,500php/pax. Kuya mike(the owner) is very helpful. If you are looking for a cheap but decent accomodation in Boracay, try TAJ! ^__^
