A big hotel with 2 or 3 buildings. Our rooms were in the old building fronting the beach. Rooms were just ok. Old room , old bed, old closet and furtinures but clean and cozy as expected from a 3 star hotel. Oh, the LED is new :) There was a safety deposit box but it was faulty, sometimes it... More

All the transportation was very good, we've been welcome with warm staff in the airport, then we took the boat, very good impression. But the room was " cold " may I say. Everything in the room was priced starting with the towel up to the pillow covers. The room rate was cheap but as well as the service.

I should written this months ago, when I started booking our stay and was not able to book at La Carmela. I have heard nice reviews and not so nice reviews about this hotel, so when my friends and I were planning a trip to Boracay last June 2014, we saw their promo on Metrodeal by their partner travel agency...

I've been in Boracay last February for 4D3N. My concern was that the safe box is not safe at all and water dispenser spoilt - staff informed but can't help but wait from the management for replacement. Otherwise daily housekeeping very good, service excellent and staff are cheerful.

The hotel was very nice with good overall service and very friendly staff. The one major issue we had were the room towels, the maid would take all the towels when she made up the room but only leave bath towel. We had to daily chase them down to request a floor mat and hand towels for the bathroom.

Thank you TravelOnline!!! we went to bora in june for 4days and 3nights! We got rooms on the first floor which saved us from going up and down the stairs (they had lifts anyway). Internet connection was a difficulty (especially on lower floors). Our non-negotiables were checked: the rooms had their own shower (with heater), A/C; safety deposit boxes. However,... More

La Carmela de Boracay is the perfect place for tourists who want a bit of luxury at a reasonable price... The rooms were tidy and reasonably sized and the staff were friendly. There is a pool but you don't go to Boracay for the pool, obviously, you go there for the beach which is just a stone throw away from... More

La Carmela is a good option for travellers who travel in groups. This is our company's second trip to boracay for our annual recreational activity. Comparing the two hotels we stayed, La Carmela trumps the first hotel we stayed. We are a company who always seek the best value. However, we also mamage our expectations. When we pay two-star rates... More
