After travelling in more isolated areas, it was nice to be pampered by the quality service of this hotel. The service was very good. People had commented on the food quality but we found it to be very good. The room was comfortable and quiet. The art collection was very interesting. We went for a guided snorkel tour in front...

Excellent hotel with a great service. If you come here you will definitely not be disappointed, trust me. Why not 5 stars? The food quality should be improved a little bit, however the service is good. When you visit amarela, They can pick you up at the ferry terminal and drive you to the resort. After your arrival, you have... More

My husband & I stayed here for 4d3n. We loved it. Here's why: 1. Room's clean, provides all the basic necessities, design makes use of Filipino materials. Even toiletries were locally produced by a local bee farm 2. Breakfast was good & big enough to be filling. 3. DVD's - they have a big collection. We almost didnt want to... More

Everything during our 3n/4d stay in Amarela resort was perfect. We stayed in a deluxe queen room. The resort is a quiet place, just what we were looking for. We visited the resort with our - year old daughter. Because it is a small resort, we got a lot of personal attention from it's staff. Everything in this resort has... More

The Amarela Resort holds a special place in my heart - and I say that as a frequent traveler. The greatest aspect is that the owner, Mr. Lucas Nunag, and Nadine, operations, and Joan, Front Office managers are ready to hear about where they fall short and commit to changes. This is why I give this boutique hotel five stars... More

Rooms: - We booked the superior room, the most basic type. But it was still very cute! Clean, with exotic design! Washroom is spacious. - There were hangers outside your room... More

Had the most amazing time at the private amarela villa! Would definitely recommend! The hotel stands out from all the rest on the island. There is a strong emphasis on the historical heritage of Bohol all around the resort. The owner is a fine art collector by local artists that I think impress on an international scale.

My bf and I rented the private villa and couldnt be more impressed and indulged. First, I want to compliment the historical cultural pieces that were preserved and emphasized at this hotel. Everywhere you look there is a beautiful piece of history. The owner of the hotel is a huge local art collector and his gallery pieces will not disappoint,... More

Actually, one of the very favorite hotels that I've ever stayed in. I liked everything about it: the warm, friendly staff, the ambience, the grounds, the prompt responses to my emails (I arranged a day tour through them and it was well worth it), the pool, the room, the dining area with the terrace view, the in-room massage service that...
