I highly recommend this place and would come back again. Pros: - good, yet small pool that was very clean - great beach and hammock area - food was good with nice outdoor seating - artwork was fantastic ... turns out it was the Philippino owners' personal art collection - DVD and book lending library ... great hanging out area...

My husband and I spent a week in Panglao at the end of July. Amarela Resort itself was an attraction for us! The resort has a beautiful garden, nice beach and amazing sea view. It was also nice to relax a bit in their swimming pool after a long day. You can see sunrise from the hotel's restaurant and rooftop.... More

We stayed at Amarela with our teenage kids for 4 nights after exploring Malapascua and other parts of Bohol. Amarela is a beautiful hotel, tastefully built with Filippino artefacts, hard wooden floors, set in a luxurious garden and it has a nice path to the beach, bordered by majestic coconut trees. The hotel is 15 minutes away from the craziness... More

So imagine you were looking forward to your trip because you and your boyfriend only meet once a year, then finding out your flight got cancelled because of a plane getting stuck in the only runway at your destination. Now imagine having to call your hotel to tell them you're being delayed a day and dreading having to pay for... More

Driving to Panglao from Tagbilaran Airport was a breeze. Roads and highways are well paved. Then, you turn into an unassuming place with wooden gate. You drive up to the warm welcome of the staff and the place. The design, the pieces of old wood and all other modern elements in the structure blend perfectly. The hotel has a full... More

I really liked this hotel very much. This hotel is not fansy one, but very comfortable, cozy like home. It was totally healing time to lie down on a sling. The food was also nice and price was reasonable. The only problem is the resort is near beach so it is hard to go market or buy something I will... More

Gasp, from the moment you walk in you cant help but drool over the interiors and architecture, common library, they are complete with entertainment, few steps from the beach. Such organic use of material, and the attention to detail, even the firehose has a carved casing! The ceilings of old thick wood is beautiful, amarela is done with such impeccable... More

If you are aiming for a relaxing place to stay in Bohol then this is the place for you. The moment we arrived I was taken aback by the beauty of the place. We booked thru Agoda. Check in was a breeze. The rooms were quite small but very clean and cozy. The beds were comfortable with clean sheets. The... More
