Booked our vacation thru A Whole New World Travel Express(highly recommended for stress and hassle free) and stayed at La Carmela for 2 nights. Staffs are very friendly and accomodating. Our room was big enough for 2 pax.. room/bath/toilet are clean w/towels and some toiletries. Aircon is good. Free buffet breakfast is great. The hotel has free water refilling station... More

It's good for what it's worth. It's not one of the best hotels, but it's close to the market and only steps away from the beach. They have continental breakfast, but for only 2 guests per room, which is kinda dumb.

On the positive side : spacious room. I did not have any problems with towels as other tripadvisor contributors. Next to the beach, but can be reached with your vehicle. I could enter the room early with no charge. On the negative side : the flyer with the explanation how to use the safe is not correct at all. The... More

Stayed here March 2015. I´ve been to 39 contries in my life and stayed at MANY hotels. This was the worst hotel experience ever. Let’s start from the beginning. We were going to stay here a lot of nights but we checked out earlier after 4 days. We arrived early in the morning and was told to come back at... More

Though there were cheaper hotels nearby, we still chose La Carmela for having better facilities. If you're tired of going to the beach, you can also take the creative designed swimming pool. The building was good and the staffs were very accommodating. When we arrived, it was a whole day brownout but then the hotel was able to provide generator... More

I was also a victim of this idiot. We stayed at Two Seasons, quoted us a package for 4 but turned out only for TWO! He was also banned at the Two Seasons. He will do anything to steal from you. He has full of promises but when we got there, 2 of my relatives doesnt have any room, doubled... More

Although there are better hotels in boracay, for the price you are paying in la carmela is worth every penny. They have 2 pools with lifeguards, very good for travelers with kids. Staffs are very accomodating. Room is big with 2 queen sized bed. We actually slept only in 1 of the bed while our baggage are on the other... More
