Stayed on the back of top bid in a charity auction and would not go back on any account. Inclusive breakfast was well below what my wife & I deem acceptable; room was dirty (cobwebs in accessible areas); fridge didn't work and was very dirty around the door seal; a/c very noisy meaning bad nights' sleep - you either leave...

Not happy with this hotel we stay here with friends and family after my wedding in batangas. We did not enjoy our stay in this hotel at all, rooms are very basic, service is so bad it takes 1 hour to give you toilet paper and fresh towels. There is long waits during breakfast not enough space to accomodate everyone.... More

This hotel is so noisy, a real echo chamber. Very crowded. Room cleaning only every second day, & only by request. Guest must be present during cleaning, otherwise forced to sign a waiver releasing hotel of responsibility for your possessions. Terrible WiFi connection only in lobby, must pay for in room, & still just barely connection. Breakfast terrible, not enough... More

I think the problem with this hotel is that it doesn't seem to understand how to handle the volume of guests that they get. I get that it's a budget hotel and that one shouldn't expect much. I've stayed here twice (Oct '13 and Oct '14) The first time I stayed here (Oct '13) was with a big group so... More

Okay, this hotel has sooooo many rooms We had this small room that was included in our package. We decided to upgrade it to much more beachfront because the small room is close to a renovating site. Drilling and hammering sound is annoying. We moved to celebrity suit japanese style. It was awsome. We stayed for a good 5 nights.... More

We recieved and twin double room with a view of nothing other than the building next door ( about 1.5metres away form our balcony). Air conditioning was so loud even on the lowest setting we couldn't get... More

We had no closet in our room, just a few hangers for our clothes. We weren't able to borrow a flat iron, because they don't lend one. So I walked around Boracay wearing wrinkled clothes. Something was terribly wrong with the shower drain. It smelled really pukey each time we bathed! I also wasn't able to eat anything from the... More

Our hotel stay overall was okay. Took a very long time to check in. The room was fine - better than I expected considering the reviews but that being said. we stayed in the Panorama Room in the Executive Wing. The bathroom was small but fine enough. The shower was good but the sink was horrible, if you put the... More

Got a deal with CashCash Pinoy for a room accommodation at La Carmela. Hotel is beachfront, with two outdoor pools, room at ground floor level especially near restaurant/breakfast area can get very noisy. Attentive and efficient staff especially helping with guests luggage and during buffet breakfast. Which I really appreciate because you don't need to call their attention to help... More
