OUr first two nights for this Boracay vacation were spent at La Carmela de Boracay. We've made our reservations as early as February. Still we got a room with a window next to a wall. I complained but was told that they are fully booked because of a group. Can't you even give priority to FITs who have booked months earlier and could have paid higher rates than group travellers? Moving on... i didn't want to ruin the rest of the day, we just stayed at the beach most of the time. One thing which we enjoyed: wifi access is complimentary :)
The bathroom was not really that clean, the bathtub was chipped on a few places, the towels and linens were not that white either and looks a bit wornout. The buffet breakfast and lunch were okay and quite reasonable at 200-250 pesos nett each. I didn't bother with the two mini pools which look more like jacuzzis with its size.
It seems that the hotel is overstaffed that it does not necessarily contribute to service efficiency but only makes each and every corner of the hotel crowded. I do not really like crowds. In general, with its inexpensive price, we got what we paid for. This can still be a good hotel for frequent travelers who are budget conscious. But for those who save and go on vacation to relax and enjoy the perks, there are a lot of resorts which are far better than La Carmela de Boracay.
