The Front Desk staff were not friendly, seemed like a feeling of "We are doing you a favor for staying here" attitude. the food was boring and tasteless.

We used to stay at Grand Boracay Hotel so we usually have high expectations when it comes to amenities especially the rooms and swimming pool..But we booked this time at La Carmela..because we thought that it offers a huge swimming pool (as shown in the picture)..Unfortunately as we arrived, we saw the "mini" pool beside the street full of wannabe...

The hotel is located in boat station 2 right on Boracay beach but then so are most of the hotels. We booked a junior suite which wasn't available when we arrived so we were upgraded to a VIP room but there wasn't much VIP about it. As we didn't get to see the junior suite we had no way of... More

We went with another family. It was a very last-minute reservation and was fortunate to be able to find a hotel. The place is ok. For the nightly rate, it was very good value. Some of the rooms are older, but the hotel does say they are in the process of renovation. We got a 2-bedroom room that was rather... More

Better check in at guest houses near D'mall. Interior is bad. Not all rooms look like the ones they published in their website. They look old. Rest room is not good. even the hallways look poor. They are undergoing construction so maybe in a few months all the rooms will have the new look. Please dont be fooled with the... More

Do not buy boracay package with this hotel!!! was my first time in Boracay and have bought a la carmela voucher on a group buying site last year. Room is small, dirty, and smelly. Hot shower is not working. Receptionists were unfriendly and unhelpful. Voucher indicated buffet breakfast. they gave us a set breakfast instead. Worse, you could only eat... More

Front desk was helpful, we check-in in about 5 minutes. They asked for 2 thousand pesos (about 50 USD) security deposit which I think is standard when you check-in in hotels. Our room was clean had enough towels. One thing I didn't like was the rooms are not sound-proofed as you can hear people outside your room talking. Buffet breakfast... More

I booked this hotel through Agoda because we didn't have a hotel for our 2nd night stay. I was impressed that our room was upgraded to the Executive Wing. It's a very big room. Toilet And bath we're clean and with good interiors. It was over-looking the beach and the pool. What I didn't like about this place was upon... More

my friends and i (four of us) shared in a room, we payed around 4k per night. the room was not spacious, but i think it's reasonable esp if you are on a tight budget. the hotel itself is beacch front but for me it's quite far from the "center" of boracay. it is quite a walk to Dmall..although both...
