Just stayed one night at this hotel. Our flight back to Manila got cancelled and this is where SEAIR booked us for the night. We stayed in one of the attic rooms. The rooms looks old and lacks furnishing. There were two very firm beds, a bedside table, cable TV, a ref (no mini bar), and one very noisy air... More

La Carmela De Boracay is a common choice for groups and an easy decision to make for us since we availed of the Barkadahan package. The said package was really a good deal with our 4d3n stay in Bora which included room accommodation and meals. However, the moment we decided to communicate with the resort gave us headaches. First, they... More

Arrived at Caticlan Airport at 12PM, the representative for the hotel was late, we had to wait for a while, which wasn't bad, at least they picked us up. Welcome drinks were provided. We stayed at the newly constructed "Executive Wing" Rooms were surprisingly great, bathroom was excellent. The bed however was as hard as rock, no windows and the... More

The staff of the hotel is a GEM. Very welcoming and accommodating. Ready smile and to greet you in all the corners of the hotel. The location is perfect, away from the buzzling DJ House music but very accessible to dining and shopping facilities. The beach front is just 30seconds away from the pool area. Rate is phenomenal too! Would... More

Stayed in this hotel in May this year as my cousin had booked this. Not a hotel I would have picked but it is a big hotel in a good location of zone 3 by the seafront. There's a nice swimming pool and the breakfast choice was great. My only dissappointment is that the rooms were so old and deffinately... More

My husband and I went there for our anniversary. We stayed in the hotel for 4 days. We can say that our stay there was a pleasant one as for first-timers. The room is clean except for the restroom that has black ants crawling near the faucet. The staffs are very friendly and accommodating. The food is great at a... More

OUr first two nights for this Boracay vacation were spent at La Carmela de Boracay. We've made our reservations as early as February. Still we got a room with a window next to a wall. I complained but was told that they are fully booked because of a group. Can't you even give priority to FITs who have booked months... More

This hotel is so unorganized and I feel like I have been ripped off. At first we were going to stay at one of their regular rooms and OH MY GOD was it dingy. It was "clean" but the rooms were so old. The ceiling had water damage. There were ants on the walls. The interiors were just horrid. The... More
