This resort is recommendable. The location, its ambiance, private beach front, very courteous and attentive staff, and other amenities are just great. The collection of antique displays and furniture that you will see is just awesome. I think what would make my rating a 5/5 is if they improve the quality and variation of the food that they serve.

This is one of the loveliest hotels we have stayed in anywhere! It is so beautiful inside, decorated in a colonial style with gorgeous artwork everywhere and outside there is an elegant infinity pool with a gorgeous view of the hotel's own white sand beach and turquoise sea beyond!

My friend and I stayed there for four nights. The resort provides pick-up service from the Tagbilaran airport and also drop-off service when you leave, which is very handy. The room was clean, air-conditioning was strong. During our stay, all the staff were very friendly and efficient, I`ve never seen so many butterflies and birds in a resort, really nice... More

My wife's grandmother was turning 100 in Manila and of course it was an event that couldn't be missed, but after a week in the crowded city, we knew we needed a peaceful getaway all to ourselves for our little family of three. Amarela immediately appealed on tripadvisor and we completely fell in love with it once we arrived. First,... More

I like this Resort as it is quiet and away from the noisy beaches of panglao, they have amazing swimming pool, private beach and good restaurant. It is a boutique hotel and stylish boutique ambience, I am still staying at hotel and next time for sure will come here

Nice private beach, nice cozy hotel with nice atmosphere, great staff, good food, all the amenities your needed on a tropical vacation, what more can you ask for! PS - if you have mobility impairement or difficulty, the climb down to the beach might be a feat.

This is a lovely and quiet home away from home. Staff were very efficient and friendly. I really enjoyed my stay which came after a period of busy traveling. Rooms are clean and comfortable. I made a stroll along the beach which was very refreshing. I really wished I could have stayed longer and I will certainly be back. Finally... More
