Alta Vista de Boracay
We arrived in the resort way ahead of the standard check in time but the employees were kind enough to accommodate us immediately. Aside from us, we found groups of Korean who were also processing their check in. This seemed good. Good tourism = more jobs.
spacious lobby of Alta Vista
While waiting for our reservation to be validated, we roamed around the beautiful pool area. The infinity pool is really gorgeous. The view is stunning and relaxing. I'm not a fan of pools, but this one's really tempting.

Not more than 5 minutes after, we were informed that our room is ready. How nice! It's just around 8am and we can already check in. By the way, I read in TripAdvisor that you can request for rooms which are nearest the lobby, so I did. Tamad akong maglakad. =)
I was surprised to see a lot of rooms in this resort. There are actually around 500 rooms. Wow, andami. No wonder, Koreans prefer to stay here because Alta Vista can accommodate all of them! Haha
500 hotel rooms in Alta Vista, probably this is Boracay's largest resort
Each building is named after the highest peaks of the world. Though the resort has lots of room, the whole area is extremely quiet and peaceful. The staff never failed to greet the guests each time they passed by.
Hymettus, just a few walk away from the lobby
The staff assisted us to our room on the 2nd floor. The room is very spacious. It can actually accommodate 4 people comfortably. This deluxe room has its own veranda with a wonderful view.

Our room already gave us a relaxing weekend getaway. But of course, the pool also delighted us big time.
There are 2 pools in Alta Vista- the ever gorgeous infinity pool and the jacuzzi area. Though the resort has lots of guests, I never felt that the resort is crowded. The pool area had very few guests in it.

not crowded at all
lakas maka-Marina Bay Sands
So far this the most beautiful resort I've stayed in Boracay. =)
The only downside of Alta Vista is that the resort doesn't have direct access to the beach. Great news is that Alta Vista offers free shuttle trips to D'Mall and their own private beach in Puka.
This is our first time in Puka Beach. From the main White Beach, this is accessible by riding a tricycle, for around P150. Alta Vista guests can request to transport here, for free! Lovely!
i still ♥ boracay
he ♥ boracay too
The sand may not be very fine but I really appreciated that Puka beach didn't have seaweeds on the shore. There were not so many people too compared to the White Beach. Na-shock ako sa dami ng tao sa White Beach. Im not used to see a crowded beach.
lovely Puka Beach
we highly recommend Puka Beach for a more peaceful Boracay experience
For the shuttle trips to and from D'Mall and Puka Beach and everything else, our stay in Alta Vista was more than a delight. It's sulit!
