We stayed in La Carmela twice already. I normally chose them because its affordable, has good location and withpool along beach front. Most of the resort hotels with pool there were expensive especially facing beach front. My toddler loves to play in the pool and then after on beach. Room was clean with bathroom amenities and hotel staff were courteous.... More

The food is not good at this hotel. We had to eat at beachside restaurants to taste good food. So we needed to spend more money just to eat good food. People go on vacation to enjoy, so I guess we should treat tourists with good food so they could enjoy. The rooms were good but aircon and water heater... More

Beachfront location. The front desk was thorough in explaining the house rules, Limited choices with their complimentary breakfast, the menu has no variety at all, and the taste of the food can be improved as well. You can hear noises outside your room from hallways. Rooms and bathrooms ok, You cant have to much expectations for the money you pay,... More

Nice family resort, marred by a number of flaws during our stay at the new wing. - The lobby was very badly ventilated: they did not even bother to install fans. - At check in, we were read a long list of rules, such as full payment is due even if stay is cancelled, etc. The rules give the impression...

Just a basic place to sleep at if you won't get the high end rooms. Food is not good but if you get the free breakfast buffet that comes with the accommodation, it's filling enough and allows you to save money by not going out to eat. They have a nice pool. Although it can get crowded. One thing I... More

Been there last March 18-20, 2014 with all the employees in my company. We booked through an agency and they offer the cheapest rates for group. We didn't stay much at the resort because we are so busy doing adventures in the island, so we hardly had time to enjoy the amenities of the hotel. It is best for groups... More

My friend and I spent 5 nights at La Carmela and I can safely say I have not stayed somewhere worse for a long, long time. Where to start... the room was super spartan. There was not even a directory with the number to dial for reception. All that was left on the bedside table was an exhaustive list of... More

Upon arrival, welcome drinks are served by the friendly staff. The over-all look of the hotel looks commercialized. It was greatly packed with rooms so that the hotel can accomodate a lot of guests. The room we got was in the Premier Wing. It got two beds, a table, a small tv. The room got no view of the beach... More

The hotel is located at the beachfront. We had a good arrival experience, as the bell staff readily helped us with our bags, and another staff gave us our welcome drinks.

They always clean the area. Almost every time that i walk through the corridors going to our room or coming from our room, there's always someone cleaning the floors and walls. They were prompt to go to your room if asked for room cleaning. The room was also clean. Clean bed sheets and towels. The only downside is that there... More
