An estimated of 46 hotels, inns and resorts in Boracay have been accredited by the Department of Tourism (DOT).
This was the data provided by the Department of Tourism (DOT) Boracay Sub-Office Team Leader Leo Kristoffer Velete based on their statistics.
He said: “Now, they don’t have an exact record about it yet base on their estimated account it is about 46 for the year 2015.”
In this regard, there were still several reports that some resorts ang hotels in the island do not have a corresponding DOT Accreditation especially those who are engaged in on-line booking.”
Thus, Velete's advice to local and foreign tourists who prefers on-line booking: “Check carefully the contacted resort or hotel on the internet or the entirety of its documents in local government.”
He added: “Also try to take the local number and not the mobile phone number to make sure and in order to avoid confusion on which resort or hotel they booked.”
Meanwhile, it can be recalled that BTAC and DOT helped a family of tourist last Saturday to find their hotel accommodations.
