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

The room we checked in doesn't smell nice. It's supposed to be a happy summer holiday but went south. The location is good. A bit pricey. Complimentary breakfast was good but then the crowd is overwhelming.

Overall the experience was quite okay except for two incidents. When we arrived at the front desk the 2 ladies behind the desk: were not even smiling (hey we're tired too and adjusting to the heat) the other one was just texting. On our 2nd day we opted to have our hair braided. We were told to have it done... More

The room was a decent size as we stayed in the executive wing. Had a balcony for smoking and drying clothes so thats awesome. Bathroom was decent as well with a bathtub that was fairly clean. Cable TV was available for entertainment. However we had 2 queen sized bed when one king sized one would be perfect. However the 2... More

We booked la carmela the executive wing thru agoda.com. and a cording to the pictures and the review, it seemed like an nice hotel. When we got our room both me and my boyfriend noted the light smell of mould. As I entered the bathroom there were a small family of cockroaches and ants. The air conditioner was a bit... More

We were initially shown a tiny room, dark and depressing with old fixings and dirty water in the lavatory, having asked for a new room we were shown an exactly similar room both in the 'executive' suites. Upon 3rd attempt we finally got an acceptable room in the west wing, this still had evidence of previous guests with hair bands(hair... More

My husband and I just stayed here for 4 nights out of our 9 in Boracay. Although the location was awesome. NOTHING else was. the rooms were clean and they had cable tv. La Carmella is not worth the price. This hotel was insanely busy and the pools looked filthy. The breakfast was disgusting. Pretty sure it was left over... More

My friends and I were supposed to stay in Boracay Travellodge, but as we arrived they transferred us to La Carmela instead because the room that was alloted to us was not yet ready. Actually we were excited about it because La Carmela is near the beach. The room was clean but nothing really special. We had issues with the... More

Stayed for 3n/4d with family and a friend in 2 premier double room. It's in the new building so the room is nice but not in beach front. Breakfast is ok and the pool is kinda small. It's an average hotel for me but its already good for its price.
