Boracay, Visayas Islands, Philippines
I had an unfavorable incident in one of the restaurants in Boracay that offers seafood buffet. I had a terrible stomach ache so I had to stay inside the hotel till I have gotten better. The hotel staff warned us that some of the restaurants might be reheating the leftovers so most of food that are served might not be fresh. Suprisingly, stomach ache is quite a common incident to travelers who had tried seafood buffets.

My suggestion?Better go to D'Talipapa and do the marketing yourself. There are small restaurants around the market that offers to cook whatever you have bought. This can ensure that what you are eating is fresh and not just last night's leftovers.

Regardless of how much more commercialized this beach is, you can't beat the sand and the beauty of the island itself. Most of the accomodations are on White Beach. If you stay at Station 1, the hotels are pricier but the crowds are little more sparse. You can walk down to Station 2 (where most of the bars are located) and check out the restaurants and nightlife. Station 3 is where you'll find your bargain hotels (beware of swindlers) and cheap shopping. The nightlife on the island is lively during their summer and peak season -- a mix of foreigners, "balikbayans" and rich kids from Manila. They have happy hour right on the beach all the way until 7 or 8pm. We hit up Cocomanga's at Station 1 (it's an open beachfront bar) that had buy 1 get 1 free drinks. Try the weng-weng if you want a kicker, and if I recall they also had some challenge to take 15 shots or something like that. I don't mind the low season, actually. Less crowded and less pretentious! If you want a change of scenery, take a boat ride to the other side of the island or neighboring beaches for something a little more secluded, go scuba diving, see the bat caves, etc. For some truly cheap, down-home eats (and lots of interaction with the locals), go to the wet market in town. They sell seafood but they'll cook it for you and you can eat it right in their house (and watch Filipino television... everyone has one!) If you want to just chill on the beach, you'll get a lot of offers for mani/pedis (not very sanitary) and massages. You can get a pretty good massage for cheap, right on the beach!

The white sand beaches are gorgeous, but good luck finding hotels with air conditioning and hot water.
