For every #LaBoracay trip, there’s always that one unfortunate soul that the group pays to arrange the itinerary while everyone chills ‘til the flight date. If you happen to click on this article, I’m gonna go ahead and assume that person is you. One of the most stressful things about planning a trip is deciding where to stay, and with Labor Day Weekend just around the corner, the struggle to find a cool place that fits your budget and lets you experience Boracay’s hardcore partying scene is ~real~. To ease your headache, we went ahead and scouted out 6 of the best places to book this coming #LaBoracay season.
The Lazy Dog Bed And Breakfast (@lazydogboracay)
The key to a great vacation lies in three little things: good food, good company and good vibes—and those are exactly what make the Lazy Dog Bed and Breakfast Boracay’s best kept secret. Aside from adorable resident pets and an in-house restaurant with menu items you'll be craving for after you leave, the Lazy Dog takes pride in giving each and every guest a slice of the old Boracay lifestyle.
Why stay: Aside from the cool hostel vibe, Lazy Dog is great for budget travelers because their room prices are lower compared to the Bora standard, plus they throw in free breakfast. Guests are also allowed to bring their furry friends!

Agos Boracay (@agosboracay)
For first timers in Boracay, it’s best to find a place near D’Mall in Station 2 where you can easily have access to tons of places to shop and eat without having to go too far. Agos Boracay offers this and a whole lot more, so it comes as no surprise that it’s managed to win TripAdvisor’s Traveller’s Choice award three times in a row.
Why stay: Aside from its comfortable homeyness, Agos Boracay is also a family-run business, so you know you’re in good hands. Celebs like Bianca King and Saab Magalona have also raved about the hotel, which puts you in good company.

Ralph’s Place Boracay (@ralphsplaceboracay)
Want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the island? Ralph’s Place is the place to be. Perched atop a 20-meter hill in Bolabog beach, Ralph’s Place Boracay features a variety of native-style bungalows and private rooms spread over a 5,000 square meter area. And yes, the bungalows are fully air-conditioned and have Wi-Fi, as do the other rooms.
Why stay: The 86-step hike to the property is great exercise, not to mention the views are absolutely stunning. While their bungalows can be a little pricey (no surprise there), you can opt for deluxe rooms you can share with a friend. Breakfast is also free!
