Henann Park Resort is the newest resort by the Henann Group of Resorts in Boracay. Hali and I booked here on our last trip since they are offering discounted rates for the off-season. Here’s our review of Henann Park Resort in Boracay!
Our stay at Henann Park Resort
Hali and I stayed at Henann Park Resort in Boracay for 2 nights. Our check-in was a breeze. The indicated time of check-in was 3PM, but we were already there are 12 noon and at 12:30PM the reception informed me that there is already a room available for us.
Henann Park Resort is located along the main road in Station 2, a walking distance to D’Mall, as well as other shops and restaurants. It’s convenient for us because we could easily explore the area. I particularly like it because I like going at late night for coffee and the hotel’s location made it easy for me to find a coffee shop or fast food like McDo.
The hotel resort is about 3 minutes by foot to the beach. However, the route is a dark alleyway that personally feels unsafe even in daylight. (The local calls it a “tunnel.”) We went this way on our first day and avoided it for the rest of our stay, preferring instead to go around to get to the beachfront. It also feels cheap. I hope Henann at least works with the local government to improve this alley.
We booked a premier room. At the check-in, we were asked if we wanted a room with 1 king-sized bed or one with 1 single bed and 1 double bed, and we chose the latter.
The room has a classy look, with neutral colors. There is a large TV, in-room safe, a balcony with pool view, and a bathroom with shower stall and bath tub. There are necessary hygiene kits and complimentary coffee and tea. It is easy to get water for these because there are water refilling stations in the hallways.
I love the look of the bath tub and how it’s positioned beside a glass wall where you can see the room.
It was also nice to just hang outside the balcony and drink coffee at night.
That saying, we had minor issues with the room.
- There are no bath robes or even slippers (considering the floor is cold).
- The walls are thin and you can clearly hear noises from neighboring rooms.
- The bath tub is shallow. I don’t know if this is the standard for hotels, but I’ve been to a lot of accommodations with better tubs. You can barely submerge yourself in the water.
- Wifi is slow. Oftentimes, we would switch to mobile data instead.
- Service is slow. Early morning of our last day, we called the service desk to ask for new toilet paper and other things. No one came by and we just left later that afternoon.
I hope that I’m not nitpicking, but I can’t help but compare it to other hotels and resorts we’d been to in the past. Henann is considered a high-end hotel brand, so I was expecting a lot better.
Henann Park Resort has a large restaurant with indoor and poolside dining. It is nice to sit in either area because of the view.
Our room comes with complimentary access to the breakfast buffet, which opens from 6AM to 10AM. My sister’s family had been to another branch of Henann in Boracay and praises the breakfast buffet. Variation is good — there are sections for salads, bread and spreads, rice and viands, dessert, and fruits.
There is also a section for juices, and servers roam the restaurant to offer coffee (or hot chocolate).
Though I like the variety of the breakfast buffet, in general it was just okay. I’ve had better breakfast buffets elsewhere. The only item I really liked was the champorado. In fact, after our first morning at the hotel, we discussed about heading outside for breakfast the next day.
The Pool Area
Hennan Park Resort has a large pool area with interconnecting pool sections. The pool is surrounded by daybeds which are reserved for massages and an island center with lounge beds you can use. There is also a pool bar and a towel station.
We swam here in the morning. The pool is not too deep (around 4 feet), so everyone can enjoy the water. It was fine, but I feel like there was too much chlorine because it hurt to open my eyes underwater. At the end of the day, we still preferred swimming at the beach.
Our stay at Henann Park Resort was okay. Don’t misunderstand me — it wasn’t terrible, but it wasn’t amazing either. I like the easy check-in and the resort’s location since it is convenient and less chaotic compared to those in the beachfront. There were issues that I think the management could improve, especially the ones I mentioned about our room stay (e.g., amenities).
I hope their other hotels in the island offer a better experience.
