Lingganay Hotel Resort Boracay

Lingganay is in a stunning location on a hill overlooking the (quieter) East side of Boracay. The resort hotel is a collection of small apartment blocks without a central lobby and it seems that there are plans for this to be built.
Lingganay Hotel Resort
Restaurant/bar is German themed with cooked breakfast. The infinity pool is breathtaking. Staff were very attentive throughout but not intrusive. 24 hr free limo service to/from D-Mall was very appreciated although I usually got a motor-cycle trike back for nominal 100 peso.
