Given its location at Station 3, expect a more quiet and less crowded environment. Nonetheless, various activities and restaurants can still be enjoyed around the area.

What recent guests have been saying:

"We usually stay in Astoria Station 1, but at this time, the hotel was close, so my family and I tried Astoria Current. I was hesitant at first because of the location (far from the center), but it turned out there are a lot of activities and nice bars and restaurants in the area (Festival Food Hub - where bands and fire dancing nightly perform)." - Aaron

"Had so much fun I could say even we are a large group, 15 adults and three young kids. The staff makes everything easy for us. Thank you, Astoria Current, for your hospitality and valuing your guest." -Marie

"We have traveled with our 7-month baby, and Calypso was the best choice. It is situated in a calm part of Boracay (we wouldn't want to stay near Station 1 and Station 2 even without a baby-too much noise and people). In front of the resort, there are always just a few people on the beach. The room was super spacious and clean. All staff is friendly and helpful." -Olga


"We celebrated my son's birthday on the island, and they upgraded us to an ocean view room which is amazing! But, what we love most is the view from our room and the restaurant, palm trees, and the ocean? Who doesn't want that? My son loves it as the beach is right outside and it was quiet and peaceful." -Gina
