Lanterna mini-hotel is a hidden gem. I won't want to stay anywhere else if given a choice. Some reasons: Excellent hosting, beautiful house and rooms, (it's better than what the pictures and description provided) and great location. White beach and Bolabog beach are both less than a 15 minute walk, and the neighborhood is safe; lively but quiet at night. Lanterna is nestled between trees and flowering plants and looking out of the balcony is a peaceful experience. Breakfast is a full on meal with a Filipino and Continental menu. Lovely food with home made jams, an assortment of teas, always a variety in the fresh fruits for breakfast. All in all, wonderful experience. Thank you, Gladys and Luig

The place was amazing. Gladys was a very accommodating host she made you feel like you owned the place. You need to familiarize yourself with the landmarks near the hotel so that you can tell the public transport where to drop you off. It’s a 10-15 minute walk to the beach. Breakfast portions are enough to start your day. 5/5 stars. Will definitely ustay here again. The place is perfect if you want a break from the hustle and bustle of the beachfront.

A pleasant stay. Helpful host, with free brekky in the morning. But with the location, could have been priced a bit cheaper! Nothing wrong with the room, but it was a 10 min walk to the beach with lots of puddles on the road. Would have been more perfect if it was closer to the white beach. And ps.The other beach that is nearby the location is not worth visiting, really... But nevertheless, it was a good stay :)

Highly recommended place! Our airbnb experience at Gladys' place was wonderful and more than we could ask for! Good location (near white beach, bolabog beach, dmall), and clean and spacious rooms. The rooms are well equipped (aircon, fan, soap, towels, hangers) and daily cleaning service was a major plus point! Gladys and her staff are approachable, warm and friendly! Thank you Gladys for making our stay at Boracay a memorable and comfortable one for us!

I have lived in various places in the world and an avid traveller. My family and I have lived in Italy, Spain, France, Canada and the Philippines. I love to kite-surf and I'm very fond of water sport activities. I love food and during my stay in Rome have had the pleasure of learning how to cook some authentic Italian dishes. Travelling is a great way to explore and connect with people from all walks of life and hosting people is a little like that without the travel. You are able to meet so many people in just one destinatioin.
