We spent a whole week in this beautiful resort and absolutely loved it. The staff was very caring and helpful, the restaurant was great and many activities are proposed. We enjoyed every bit of our stay and would definitely consider going back for more!

We had a glorious 5 days at Amarela with our 2 children. The Amarela wonderfully relaxing and beautiful. The decor/styling of the resort is wonderful, the gardens a delight, and you find you have to stop yourself taking photos of every beautiful angle. The resort is slightly removed, with a short drive to Alona Beach, which is really a blessing.... More

A special retreat in a wonderful island, a taste of paradise with its white beaches, hundreds of starfishes just few meters from the shores and crystal clear water. The resort is perhaps a bit expensive, especially considering the cost of life in the Philippines. It definitely pays off, though: an excellent service, amazing food (the most delicious mangos ever), a... More

We stayed here for 3 nights. This place is really nice. Really clean, staff are nice and courteous. Food is really good, only you have to order ahead if you want to eat on time because it could get a little longer for them to serve it. The pool is also clean only its small. I like their architecture, rooms... More

Attentive staff, beautiful grounds, but if you want to go nearly anywhere, you will have to pay for a ride, as its quite far from most places. We walked about 45 min to the Bohol Bee Farm and about 20 to the Coco Farm, but other than that, you will probably have to pay to go anywhere else. Secluded, safe,... More

Our stay was for five nights for group of five. Everything had been great from reception to departure. The staff were outstanding. The deluxe rooms were perfect in size. The food quality was upto mark. The pool and the beach met our expectations. Sure will comeback again.

We had a top suite which was very Nice with a view over the ocean. Very clean and with a good bed , silent aircon. The surroundings were very beatiful. The breakfast was very small. The fact that you are about 15 min. driving from Alona Beach is a avantaged. You get away from the noise.

This is the only resort that I will give six stars out of 5. That's how much they exceeded my expectations and my expectations were at an all time high because of the reviews here in TA. Accommodation Our accommodation was simple yet addresses all our needs. Clean bathroom, complete with toiletries upon request. The styling in the room is... More

The LOWDOWN on this resort. Took ferry from Cebu (2 hours "high speed". Arrive 30+ min before ferry, or pay a kid an extra 100 to get you tickets thru the "back line". Dont take a tricycle from the boat to the resort, roads are too bumpy, taxi better, though not cheap as its 30-40 min. The resort supposedly drop... More

This hotel is located on a cliff that has access to the beach. It is not very far from Alona Beach (where most of the activity on this island happens), however you do need a vehicle to go to Alona Beach which the front desk is happy to organise for you. The service at this hotel was absolutely amazing. All... More
