we arrived 8th of june 2011.. Though we expected that the hotel accommodation is a bit laid back, but considering the name of la Carmela de Boracay (which happens to be a sister company of Boracay Courtyard).. We gave it a try, though we stayed at La Carmela several times already.. BC offered breakfast at la Carmela and allowed guests to use their pool as well..
When we requested for the transfer, w/c cost 425/pax one way, (all in) - seems to be ok. Although our flight via PAL was delayed for an hour.. Our fetchers were ready to pick us up and we rode a van , an hour and a half ride to cagban pier.. then we rode the private boat of the resort. then from pier/port was shuttled to La carmela Resort...
This was the signal of our agony... we were dropped off at La carmela as supposed to be Boracay Courtyard.. we have to walk about the 10 minutes.. It was a shock for us guests to see that there was a half knee deep of flood that you have to pas thru before reaching the hotel.. I don't know if it's a plus, that they placed several wooden step boards for us to cross... about 3 feet high... Whew!.. Just imagine what we have to go though every time we go back to our hotel room... we were then given a room at the end of the corridor.. It was so dim but practically clean and the bathroom was big and clean with hot and cold shower.. We requested for a remote control for the t.v. (Believe it or not we were repeatedly given broken remote 4x)..sucks..
Rooms can be made up on a per request basis.. Towels were not changed daily.. considering it's a resort hotel.. our door knob is broken broken.. Air-conditioning unit was cold. but you must bear the agony of the sound of dripping water from air-conditioning unit from the upper floors, there should be a hose connected to the unit.
Food at La carmela was on average taste but it's ok for the price of 270 for dinner/Lunch buffet... for budget conscious I would recommend Sir Boy BBQ,,, very affordable price on their menu...
Pool was ok, lifeguard on duty... Water is clean... a plus factor, esp. for families with children..
price wise for boracay Courtyard Hotel reasonable.. But the service is poor..
