Location: La Carmela is right next to the beach in Station 2. A short walk and your there straight to the beach. Very close to D' mall. Rooms: We booked for a premier vip and we are not happy with the room. A double and a single for four people is not really conducive for having a good rest. So,... More

We stayed here March 2013. With a family of 8 we've got 2 executive rooms. Room is quite small & the bed was small too, the bed was sandy when turned over to us so we requested for change of beddings. Good location since its a beachfront, pool was ok but a little bit crowded. Breakfast was good also. There... More

What's nice about this place is that it's so near the beach just a few steps away but I find it too crowded. Mostly come by groups or by family. The breakfast dining area both the new and the old building are always full and you need to wait to be seated and so embarrasing especially for foreigners that they... More

We stayed at the La Carmela because they're a bit cheaper compare to the other beachfront hotels and the rooms are good for 4 persons, so I guess we saved a lot for that. Our room was located somewhere we still needed to walk as if walking to a hotel that is located behind a hotel... I'll never forget how... More

We stayed in this hotel from Aug 17-19, 2015. We booked using expedia and we chose this hotel because it was always endorsed by Filipino celebrities. But I think this hotel is overrated and overly talked about by local celebs. We arrived earlier than check-in time of 2:00pm and we were allowed to get a room right away so at... More

This hotel is disgusting, rooms are dark and smelly, we had to transfer to another room but it's all the same, they need to have some renovation, floor and walls in the shower are mouldy. Air condition wasn't working properly. Breakfast is terrible and the worst ever, there was a cat walking around the restaurant, my sister had to transfer... More

Nice location, nice rooms, NO wifi in rooms, slow wifi in lobby, terrible food and Taste (breakfast).Some of the staffs are good some are annoying! 3 pools (kids and adults) You need to call them everyday to change towels, clean the rooms. Choose executive wing than the main building.

We've stayed here with my friends this August. It's a cheap room that can accommodate 4 persons and just cost Php2,500 when it's not peak season. It's a good beachfront hotel at Station 2 so you don't need to walk far just to get to the beach. However what I have noticed for the 3 nights stay here, breakfast is... More
