I like the personalized service of the owner and his attendants. From the arrival and departing at Cagban Port, the accomodation surely you will have a restfull night after a 4 kilometers walk at beach and long day of Island hopping con snorkelling/diving and some cave adventures at nearby Island. You can feel a sense of being at peace away from a metropolitan way of life and pressure at work while at a cot bed afront your room. Surely I will get back to this place whenever I have again the opportunity to come to Boracay.
I booked in this hotel because the staff was friendly enough through our email communication. When I actually got there it was little dissapointing because it was surrounded by construction site. There were bugs in bathroom all the time and more importanly NO HOT Shower!! but for the price I think it was ok overall. This probably the only hotel walk in availble you will find.
I like it because it's really for a budget traveller. The room rates are very affordable. The place is nice. The people are very, very accommodating..as in. It's cozy. I love the hammock outside the room. It's complete. The room and the washroom is clean. My Boracay trip was a blast. Thanks to Trafalgar for making my stay really enjoyable. I promise to be back next year. See you!! ^_^
Excellent service that gives real value for your money

Trafalgar cottage provided one of the best services available for accommodations of its kind. My partner and I were welcomed by its warm host in the Tagbisaan port (it was rainy and Cagban port was temporarily closed); he thoughfully held a makeshift welcome sign with my name written on it. He offered to take our bags and looking at his thin frame (no offense, Kuya Joel) we decided against it and negotiated our tricycle fare to the vicinity.
Our room has a soft wicker hammock with a small half-kitchen right on the patio. It is modestly equipped with tableware and kitchen basics sans the stove for food prep. Inside is a 6" double mattress, two pillows (could use replacement though), blanket, stand fan, a thick towel, basic open closet and a smallish quaint bathroom. Once I got to the bathroom, it cemented my decision that the place is a winner. It smelled of nothing but CLEAN; it has a small bar of Safeguard soap and a roll of tissue. Not a spot of mildew can be seen by the naked eye.
I am a frequent traveler and I have been to many budget inns and cottages fit for backpackers around the country and some SE Asian countries and I can definitely say this is one of the best I have been to. The English in their signages is not only passable, it is grammatically correct. They have a map of Boracay tacked by the door of each room which is a very thoughtful gesture.
The staff is quick and willing to attend to each guest's requests. One of them even walked us to the beach (White Beach is only 2 minutes walk and the main road plus a medical clinic is only 1 minute from the vicinity)and pointed out stores where we can score MORE discounts by just dropping "Trafalgar".
Trafalgar's upkeep is a notch or two below being immaculate. For P500 per night per room for two persons, it gives the best value for every Peso paid.

of the three storey building is green. Needless to add, the hotel, which is part of the Paradise Garden ...
