We booked an executive deluxe room with them through a popular online hotel reservation site and got a good deal. The room has its own semi private (as it is shared with the adjacent room) pool but it was not filled with water. We did not bother to ask the staff to fill it up since we won't be using... More

This is the second time that I stayed in La Carmela. The first one was with my husband and our daughter in 2011. We had no issues with the room probably because we stayed in the executive wing. The only minus point then was the breakfast which is really terrible and the hallway which is very dark... This time I... More

We got a free upgrade from a Family Room to a VIP room since our room wasn't ready yet when we checked in. It is a multilevel room with 1 twin bed, 3 king size beds, 2 full bathrooms, 2 mini fridge, and a balcony. We were given complimentary breakfast during our 2 days stay. The staff are polite and...

The hotel is a beachfront hotel in station 2 so it is ideal for for those who would like to be in the middle of all the happenings in the White Beach area and the island. Its location is the main reason why we chose the resort. The room that we stayed in had all the things that we needed... More

La Carmela is conveniently located at the station 3 beachfront. Though some of the staff are friendly but training in service oriented business needs a lot of improvement. Room is very small, not even a glass or a cup was not readily available inside the room, you need to ask for them to give. Basic thing like hot water flask... More

Though the place is a little bit crowded ( we booked timely during a convention when the place was exclusively use by delegates ) but cost wise it is very affordable. The location at Station 2 is perfect too. The shore is just a stone throw away. I love swimming in a pool, but I dislike their pool's location which... More

Cockroaches inside our bathroom is so big. I got really scared! Stayed at room A6 on June 17-19, 2014. Worst breakfast buffet. The place where to eat breakfast smells awful and the food is gross. There's even cockroach on it! We called the attention of the waiter to report the issue but he didn't even went back for us. I... More

Okay. So, I am writing this as an American, not a Filipino. So a Filipino, this might be very average or possibly considered like a budget hotel. To me however, this was definitely lower than a Motel 6. I am just giving my perspective. You see beautiful pictures online, making you feel like this is some 4 star resort. It's... More
