Visited this hotel between 18-22 Aug with my partner. Before arriving to the hotel I was dubious about the comments on here but thought I would wait to find out for myself. We were promptly picked up at Kalibo airport for our lengthy (2.5 hour) journey to the boat port where we were transferred to Borocay island. Following another 15min... More

ideal for budget traveler and backpackers but not recommendable for tourists and other guest who has a keen eye and great expectation, as surely they will feel bad if you book them under this hotel and one more thing the food is not nice :(

We went there last August to celebrate my birthday with friends. Since my friend's flight was earlier, I asked them to get a hotel for us. They've selected La Carmela de Boracay. We got there late in the evening and saw fire dancers near the pool, twas quite fascinating. I was like, this hotel seems great so far, not until... More

It is not the hotel recommended for a first time visitor in Boracay. We have no other choice as it was the hotel included when we book thru airasiago.com. We stayed in a semi deluxe room. I did not enjoy our 2 days - 2 nights stay there. No wifi, no signal and you have to pay for the wifi... More

We stayed on a Standard Room located on the ground floor near the reception area. Linens, comfort room, room service, room amenities, if i am to rate this in a scale of 1-5, i'll give them a 3 as there are still a lot to improve. We did not really tried their food since we wanted to try different restaurants... More

If you have booked even just one night here, organise somewhere else to stay immediately. Firstly we booked through a travel agent who was not informed by the hotel that our room was directly where they were doing construction (which lasts between 5am to very late at night). Even though we had already pre paid for our three night stay... More

I stayed at this hotel july 29-31, 2014. This hotel needs a lot of updating and cleaning! The room had a horrible smell and was dirty. The beds were uncomfortable and the bathroom was dirty. The patio had a tub of dirty water (not sure what it was supposed to be) with buckets to catch the water leaking from the... More

I booked our room after trying hotels in Station 1. It was peak season, so it was so hard to book a hotel you like. It was never our choice to stay in this hotel but it's a matter of "take it or leave it!" The previous reviews were completely true. It's a beachfront accommodation and they serve buffet breakfast...

As expected of a station 2 hotel, you have to know that with budget comes basic amenities. La Carmela is a large resort so guests have to squeeze themselves in the beach front for the sunbathing lounges/bed. They have a swimming pool which is great. The rooms are simple but clean. The bathroom has a bathtub but my friend got... More
