“Tried their buffet dinner... and never going back.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2012

You can see their buffet dinner sign along the beach that says P275 eat-all-you-can buffet. Don't even think about it. The food is lousy, it's like they didn't even bothered to taste their dishes. Everything is smothered in oil, with very little flavor and taste like cardboard. But their barbecued chicken is good, but you have to fall in line for 15 minutes to get about two pieces, then you have to wait for another batch to be cooked.

Their service is great, if that's any consolation to the awful food they are serving.

I do not recommend their buffet. Find another restaurant if eat-all-you-can dinner is your thing.

Our first time in Boracay(Early June) and our family stayed in 2 quad rooms. Our rooms were never cleaned during the 4 days we stayed. The garbage cans were overflowing, and ants were everywhere! I had to get the broom from the kitchen to sweep the sand from the floor of the rooms. The staff did not seem interested in cleaning. The only attraction to this hotel is the location. My family is never going back to this hotel. MY ADVICE: shell out a few more bucks and stay in a REAL hotel. You get what you pay for.

The hotel is beach front alright, but my issue is it's a little stinky as you go pass the reception area to the kitchen to go to the rooms inside. I can't explain what the smell is like but it smells maasim (sour) like all food were cooked that it doesn't smell good. Also, passing the reception is the hotels toilet, where my sister said it's unhygienic that the toilet is right next to the kitchen. We stayed here for 3days/2nights on Feb 28-Mar 1 2012 with my family of 4. We booked the quad air-con room for 5,600 pesos, already discounted. Includes a set breakfast for 2. They offer a dinner buffet at a discounted price of 175 pesos per person. The food is Ok. What I like about this resort is their beach beds. The quad aircon room is Ok, hot/cold shower, cable tv, mini fridge, and it has a spacy balcony in front. We could have stayed to other hotels but most of them were fully booked. I was looking for a budget beach front hotel and this was the hotel available. The hotel offers a free wifi. There's a nearby Andoks food store. I would really want to book again to la carmela de boracay but they were fully booked that time. I would choose not to go back to this hotel again.
