dberte We loved this place! We stayed in a lovely 4-person dorm that had plenty of room to move around without having to constantly stow our bags away. The room was never buggy or too hot. The staff was kind and helpful, food was delicious, facilities well-built and well-maintained. I kind of wish I could just live there! It was also only a 2-minute walk from one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, which makes the price of the room all the more appealing. The only downside, and it is a very small one, is that there were no hot showers (at least, not in our dorm, maybe in others), but that wasn't a problem most of the time. I would stay here again in a heartbeat!
nico.blu when we arrived in Boracay, we were fetched by a staff member of Trafalgar with a sign board. when we arrived in Trafalgar,Mr.Joel Tejada, the owner of Trafalgar, welcomed and ushered us to our room. It was a little but very cold because the windows are made of bamboo. the bathroom was very clean and the kitchen is spacious too, where you can cook food that can be bought from the talipapa. The staff is very accommodating and are available 24 hours. your stay at Trafalgar will be worth they attend to ur needs immediately.room and garbage cleaned everyday,its a place to stay especially for family. Thanks Mr.Joel Tejada and staff for making our stay at Boracay, worthwhile. Cherry B. family

luzantolo I was a little bit disappointed upon arrival as it was difficult to locate the place. The pathwalk is not easy and the people whom we asked along the way seemed not to know the place ( i guess they want to get their offers). But the welcome I get from the staff was quite amazing, their concern, their patience to listen as I ventilate my exhaustion appeased my disappointment. The garden is beautiful i was glad to have stayed in the hut facing the garden. The other thing is the availability of the kitchen..it makes us feel at home. salamat for the stay.
blsanda The staff was helpful and attentive. A little far from the beach, but for the price, it's worth it. Also, the facilty needs to upgrade the thin mattresses to thicker ones.

djsmission Overall I had an immensely wonderful time at the Panorama. Emma, the co-owner and her staff, Beth, RJ, and Arian were an absloute joy to work with. They catered to every need. Emma's astute research got me a free ride from Kalibo airport to Katiclan and she had RJ meet me there in the pouring rain and he insisted on taking my two heavy backpacks and carried them all the way to the hotel, handled all the arrangements for tranfers to the ferry to Boracay, and then catching the right Tuk Tuk to the resort. RJ disppeared upon my arrival, not waiting around for a tip but when I found him again he was most appreciative of getting one because it appeared he wasn't expecting it. I found other staff to also even refuse a tip for a much less laborious situation, such as offering to walk me to a place instead of just directing me there but it was still very appreciated by me. Beth and Emma were full of the most incredibly interesting conversation and sometimes it was difficult for me to tear myself away to go see the rest of the island because their conversations were so intriguing and I didn't want to leave. RJ and Arian though a little more limited in English than the ladies, still managed to also carry on really great conversation, some of which I will never forget. Their great listeners and understand better than expressing. Emma was most helpful not only assisting me with the "free" use of the computer but she even took her time to show me around the island to look at apartments. She also provided me with advice on renting there on the island as well and helped me get a free ride back to the airport based on her impeccable research. The room was very comfortable with A/C and a fan and a large bathroom with a place to hang my clothes. There is a spring water dispenser in the common area to fill up your water bottle. I never partook of the continental breakfast but that was because I never got up early enough. I didn't know what the time frame for that was so I would suggest you ask them. The common area is very comfortable, kind of like a living room. The upstairs deck is very pleasant to sit on with exposure to full sunlight but I believe that is only accessible when Emma is present. The same goes for the computer. All night (paid) computer access is available a 5 to 10 minute walk away as is about so many hotspots like the mall, the beach, the clubs and shops. It's about convenient to everything. It's also pretty quiet although it's close to the beach clubs. Overall I would recommend this place to anyone who is traveling to Boracay. You have to walk up a partiually unfinished path to get there, either way but it wasn't bad at all. There might be cheaper places on the island but you will not find a more secure, safer, friendly, service oriented place than the Panorama. If you're a nice person, you will not make friends there, you will make family. I not only like these folks, I loved them. They're terrific. Hats off to all of you, Emma, Beth, RJ and Arian
