I depend on my laptop for a living. The hotel said it had Wi-Fi but it only works with cell phones which have a different way of connecting than laptops. Three Wi-fi networks showed up, one open and 2 secured. I could not connect to any with the laptop. I went out to the lobby and saw a girl who... More

My stay last year wasn't that smooth, the aircon in our room isn't fractioning well but other than that all was OK so I gave it another chance.... More

I have stayed at La Carmela annually since 2007. It is a budget hotel with budget hotel amenities. Service has always been good, and actually seems to get better year after year. This year as I was checking in I mentioned that I was a regular and was told that I would be put int the executive wing. I thought... More

We stayed at La Carmela de Boracay for 2 nights and 3 days, I love the place and very affordable for everyone. I would recommend for family vacation, the place is in front of the beach and they have three (3) swimming pools.

We stayed in this hotel for 4d/3n and everything was just so disappointing. They will not change the beddings, towels or clean your room if you don't request them to. The bed sheet is off white when its supposed to be really white. The drinking glass is plastic, room is not well lit and the shower heater in our room... More

La Carmela is the place for you if you want to save on accommodations in Boracay while still enjoying a beachfront property . PROS: immediate access to the beach, has a swimming pool as an alternative option for the kids We availed of the hotel's transfer package from Kalibo - Aklan and vise versa and we have no complaints. The... More

We stayed for only a night in this hotel but I have a lot to say already. Bad - free breakfast was awful. It was not appealing and delicious at all. Take breakfast somewhere else. Elevator in the East Wing was inoperative during our stay. Room smelled old though they said it's the newest building. Bed sheets were not as... More

Ice stayed in the shangrillas and regency and lagoon hotels on boracay. Though the rooms are very basic i found it one of my most memorable atays on the island. Its a phillipino getaway for the most part. The staff are very good and the fact that your literally just off the beach is a major asset...the service to the... More
