On behalf of the Astoria management, Astoria Boracay’s Resort Manager Joy Suarez received TripAdvisor’s Certificate of Excellence. “Our aim is to offer our valued guests with our resort’s design driven yet comfortable accommodations and facilities, truly unforgettable travel and family holiday experiences and aim to render 100% total guest satisfaction in all aspects of our operations. This award from TripAdvisor is evidence that our hard work is translating into positive reviews on TripAdvisor and motivates us to do even better as we open our next set of Astoria resorts: Currents by Astoria on Station 3 and Astoria Palawan in San Rafael, Puerto Princesa Palawan both in the first quarter of 2014.” said Suarez.
