My husband and I stayed 4 nights at Amarela. It is a small, 25 room, boutique hotel, located in an excellent beach in Panglao, probably one of the best in the area. We enjoyed swimming, beach combing and kayaking, which was complimentary. We lounged at the hammocks located under the palm trees. Just a beautiful area.
The rooms and bathrooms are comfortable and offer all the ammenities needed. I loved their soaps!!! They also offer in room, complimentary tea/coffee making facilities. The breakfast was quite adequate, offering several choices plus beautiful fresh fruit. The staff was always smiling, helpful, and knew us by our first name. The gardens are well maintained and beautiful flowers abound. The only problem we encountered was the number of families with misbehaving children at the pool and at the restaurant, when we were trying to enjoy our dinner in a peaceful and relaxing environment. We were there during the Chinese New Year. It was obvious that the parents had no control over their children and sometimes they were louder than the children themselves. To avoid this very annoying situation, DO NOT GO during the Chinese New Year Holidays. We complained to the management, which were very understanding and accommodating about the situation.
Amarela is a very special place and could be idyllic. Bohol has lots to offer and I would highly recommend doing a day trip around this beautiful island.
