“Nice spot, great staff, good time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013 via mobile

We stayed there last March through WowPhilippines, and enjoyed it very much. We found the staff in particular to be quite friendly and accommodating. A healthy tip at the bar ensured a quick run of Red Horse, and the restaurant staff were always helpful.Our Executive wing room was quite adequate for our needs: brief periods of rest before hitting the sun, sand and surf. The beach, the boardwalk, the amazing sunsets, and the wonderful people ensured we had an awesome time. Make sure you go island hopping, and don't forget to buy your own snorkelling gear.

Stayed March 2012

I found the place noisy with loud bangs of people closing doors and kids running up and down the halls witch you could hear in your room .
The place was clean.
The pool a nice spot to sit around.
Breakfast was not so good.
I found the place was a bit over priced for what it was but in saying that it's in a good spot close to most things a short walk to the D Mall.

I purchased a 4D/3N standard room accommodation at La Carmela Resort, Boracay from an Online Group Buying Site. The location was nice (beach front), the receptionists were friendly, and the staff were helpful. There are 2 swimming pools that are perfect for small kids, but very small for an adult. But unfortunately the standard room that we got was terrible. It has no view, the aircon could not keep up with the summer heat, the location of the room was in a secluded part of the hotel that one time I got lost locating it. The buffet breakfast was nothing special.

Room Tip: Don't buy from an online group buying site. Better book directly at the hotel and choose a room...

My family and I are staying in the Executive Wing and we are put in a Family Room in the 4th floor (401) It is at the furthest part of the floor. The elevator nearest ours is not functioning during the time of our stay. My mother is already 58 y/o and is suffering knee pains and is no longer capable for long walks and running up and down the stairs. No wheelchair available. We are not granted to be transferred to a standard room in the lower floors, though we agreed to a lower room category than what we paid and reserved for. We have to go through long walks up to the 4th floor and through the hallway before arriving to our room. There are no room slippers considering that the floor is so cold due to the aircon. There is also no room foot rag considering that the floor is always wet due to us going in & out swimming. There is no turndown service. Amenities are not replenished daily.

Room Tip: Choose a room near the elevator or stairs.

Nice to know that it really offers a great location, but aside from it nothing else. The rooms are old and smells bad. Long time waited for check in and check out. The Breakfast is really ODD!!! Will think twice if will book again at this hotel.

Haven't been here, but now i know why they are low in Tripadvisor. I'm planning a trip to Boracay this summer and i have sent many inquiries in their website and sent many sms in their mobile but they do not answer or reply unlike other hotels. Maybe they don't like customers haha..
