It was great statying at the La Carmela beach front, accomoddating staff and the AC in the room was great! Our room is near the dining area. We will definitely come back at this hotelGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not pleased by the rooms"
Rooms were outdated. We were expecting more. Room has a funky smell. AC didn't really work that well... The only thing we liked about it was because it's beach front and the hotel receptionist are nice and helpful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not A Good Place"
Place need an elevator especially if they place you on the 5th floor. Not good when you have an 83 year old family membet.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not what I expected"
My experience at La Carmela could've been better. I booked an executive room (side building, view facing the street, not ideal) after check in, we were hoping for someone to direct us to our room since the other people checking in, in the main building were being ask if they needed help. When we asked, The staff were just pointing towards the direction […] we're supposed to go not even bothering for one second to offer additional assistance. Also, the receptionists in the executive building (yes they have two) were looking at us as if we were crazy for wanting assistance. The rooms are not as pictured. Disappointed I asked for an upgrade, paid 5,000 pesos additional to what I've already paid in expedia, got a VIP room for 2 nights. I asked for an ocean view, got a wall view. and Since I was staying with 2 other people, I asked for an extra breakfast ticket for 2 days I only got two during booking. They agreed. The only bonus was that the VIP room was a bit more comfortable than the first room. Our private balcony was right by a big wall (no view whatsoever) For paying an additional $114 I expected a better service, better views, better accommodation. Tip: careful not to stain their sheets, towels with henna tattoo. They'll charge extra. It could've been better. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
I guess you get what you pay for. I did not have an ocean view. Was on budget mode. I got a nice view of a scapholding of a construction site with three construction workers work on each level. Boracay itself was crowded. It has changed since I was there in '96. I don't plan on going back to Boracay. Too commercialized. Too crowded. Too many people. […] It was not relaxing at all. The food was good. But the hotel wing where I stayed was not close to the beach. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
There is no network coverage inside our room.. Wi-fi is not available.. Some areas of the room are dusty.. The a/c is not working wellGenuine Expedia guest review
I guess they are better hotels out there. I got this hotel because of its beach front location but instead i got transferred to there new building located at the back. So whenever i had to walk to the beach, i had to go from the back through a main road a block away from the beach. Breakfast is good. You have to walk a mile to discover boracay so be […] ready. Do try scuba diving, parasailing, zipline, riding a sailboat and the food. There are bands and bars open at night. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"superb customer service"
our stay was great. we had a good time except the buffett was a little on the down side. My brother in law was taken to emergency hospital nearby and the hotel staff was so great in assisting us until he's released. Great place for the price. The fire dancers were so entertaining and we liked the idea of the dining set up by the beach front.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
A/C & Bathroom are not working very well .. It was so hot inside the room & can't sleep coz its noisy! Can hear everything outside the room. Wanted to swim in the pool but I saw the water it's almost black! But over all u get what u paid for coz its affordable that's why they have lots of guests. I didn't take any pictures too..Genuine Expedia guest review
"very well organized."
close to everything and well organized. friendly staff and good foodGenuine Expedia guest review
"it was OK"
11 AM check out was too early. it should be done like 2PM or after lunch time. P240 for breakfast buffet was not worth it if you come late, there is not much food left and they don't refill the food trays.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
limited space for people to eat, suggest to build a bigger dining area. bravo zulu to the staff of la carmela.Genuine Expedia guest review
Bathroom should be updated. Water doesn't go down. We have to pushed the Water to the drainage to go down. Wifi is slow connecting to the internet but overall it's good and close to everything.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"you can get better hotels for the same money"
room was clean when we got in. problem is: they didn't clean it for 2 days even after we asked 3 times. no free internet (in the room). breakfast below acceptable quality even though they had so much stuff.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Recent Hotel Stay"
The hotel was great and right on the beach. The staff was very helpful and in fact I was upgraded to beach front view. The hotel is in a great location. Everything was in walking distance. The only problem I had with the room is the toliet never work very good. But next time that I go there I will stay there again. The pool was great too.Genuine Expedia guest review
Cute (but no frills) room for the price. However, the staff was extremely friendly and helpful if you needed assistance with anything... Will stay again...Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Borocay Island is great!"
I enjoyed my stay. The hotel was conveniently located and no problem getting to the beach. The comfort was OK. The ladyboys were beautiful. Lots of people to meet. The beach front was good. I enjoyed my time there and had a lot of fun with the ladyboys. I would return just because of that. Thank you.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"nice hotel not to expensive"
everything is good i will come back again to this hotel and i will recomended this to my friend. Hotel.com did a greet job.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I left the hotel after a few days they weren't cleaning my room I ran out of toilet pater and no clean towels, I had to call everytime to get anything from services, they allow little children to run up and down the hallways at 5:00 am in the morning and screaming and making a lot of noise, so very hard to get any sleep I wouldn't stay in that hotel […] again if it were free of charge Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"nice affordable hotel in great location"
overall it was a nice place in a good location, freindly helpful staff nice pool. You had to pay for internet in your room , 100 pecos for an hour. The free breakfast was just ok. In our room , the balcony door could be unlocked by just jiggling it for a couple of seconds and i believe that a good theif could have opened the room door with a knife. […] there are security cameras in the hall though. Dont know if they actually work. Water pressure wasnt great, but better than alot of other places that i have stayed in the Philippines.Knowing what to expect, I believe I would stay here again!

If you are on a budget, this hotel is good enough to stay in Boracay. Reasonable distance to the center of the white beach and decent room to sleep at. Though I am very disappointed that we did not the exact room as shown to your website when I booked. Cleanliness is acceptable. Quality of the toilet I may have to recommend must be improved. Room we […] got the faucet was not working properly. As for the quality o the service, it can be a bit slow. Then since the hotel only have free wifi available at the restaurant, guest are given an option to have it at their rooms for a fee. Only that the card available for sale based on how much hours you used are very limited. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Do not recommend at all!!!!"
This hotel listed amenities that they did not offer. They also tried to up charge for services that were clearly listed as included in the package we paid for. Employees of the hotel were not trained on what the hotel offered....and this definitely does meet the standards of a "resort and spa"Genuine Expedia guest review
The stay was not what we expected. We had to tell reception constantly that we required towels. There was no communication between reception and house keeping. If the room required house keeping, you had to tell reception to pass message onto house keeping. Over all, we found the staff very unprofessional!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
it was fineGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Disappointed!!! Not worth the price,."
It was not as what I am expecting...we arrived late in the evening and we were too tired from a long trip. I was glad that they upgraded our accommodation from semi deluxe to premier however it was too obvious that they were over booked and we were not on the expected list of guests. I thought the room was nice because its a new building but it still […] looks like an ordinary room in a pension house although it is said to be premier deluxe. The room has no bath towels and soap when we arrived, no foot towel can also be seen in the bathroom. The front desk and bellman mentioned several times that in case we need assistance we just have to dial 100. To my surprise the line was always busy, never was a time that I was able to connect and everytime I need something I have to go out of my room and go down in the loby. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Staff very accommodating. Fantastic service, prompt with our request of borrowing dining utensils in room, room cleaning and towel,shampoo replacements. Free purified water in every floor hallway. Location is perfect. Complimentary breakfast is ok, but for a long stay,must have more variety of viand to satisfy guests.but al in all not a big issue because […] it's free. Relatively clean, I saw staff very 20-30 minutes sweeping the floor corridor because of the sand beach and wet guests coming.. Will be back for sure at La Carmela and will suggest other friends to stay here. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Apart from the broken a/c, the extremely noisy neighbourhood and the bed bugs, it was okay, given the price.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Honestly I'm not satisfied for what I paid for the room given to us. I think that room 119 (Main) needs renovation especially the color of the paint. It's look like an old room that really need to give life. Ceiling has water stain and cabinet needs new handle.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Boracay over rated"
Poor Breakfast if you are a Westerner....ok if you are Asian. Good location to beach and night life.Room was inneed of upgrading if you are in a standard room and therefore over priced for what you get. Chinese owner so what do you expect!! Don't go when it rains as its like the WILD WEST. Dirts flooded streets.walking . Here in the Philippines there […] is tax on top of tax....Be careful not to be ripped off. Stay is ok for 5 days if NO RAIN. Third World streets Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"good location but the taste of the food need impro"
nice location, very affordable hotel, but the buffet breakfast is not good, they need to improved the taste of the food.Genuine Expedia guest review
I loved my stay at this hotel, the staff are very friendly and approachable. The hotel is beauty itself, especially the facade. There's just one thing though, maybe you guys could improve the quality of food that was offered in the buffet area. But overall, i would recommend this hotel to all :)Genuine Hotels.com guest review
what we enjoyed is the comfy beds only but found very hard time in the internet connection which is very hassle on our part..were staying at premier wing 3rd floor and no wifi available in the building..the buffet breakfast is worst bcoz in my 3N4D stayed there, i never remember I enjoyed the food they served. The receptionist is not doing there job […] at all, just for a request of a night extension of stay was not granted even we requested upon check-in of the said extension. But blessings in disguise we'd transferred to a different hotel nearby for our 4th & 5th night. I'll never go back to this hotel again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Nice location that's all"
Wasn't as we expected .. The rooms seem different in the pic .. Old rooms but you can live in it .. AC only to complete the room design not to work 👎Genuine Expedia guest review
"Ok if it's just to sleep in"
To get an adequate hotel room, make sure you're ready to pay double because a standard room is like a dorm room with a tv with bad reception.Genuine Expedia guest review
my overall experience in La Carmela is pleasing. It made me want to go back in Boracay and stay in the same hotel. the rooms are clean. sheets are clean. staff are friendly and prompt whenever you ask something from them. The only con is that they did not put any glass to use for drinking water in the room, which should is a must have for a hotelGenuine Expedia guest review

"Close to the beach"
The hotel was close to the beach. The only problem is they run out of chairs in the morning during their breakfast buffet. Add some more.Genuine Expedia guest review

Had a wonderful stay at La Carmela De Boracay. We were booked there for 3 nights. The staff are so friendly and are very willing to help anytime. The room was clean. My family had a great time.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Location far from the center of Boracay."
Rooms look over used. The water from the bathroom is very smelly. Saw small cockroach inside the toilet. Location is far from center of Boracay, it's really a long walk. Buffet breakfast is not good too. The only thing I'll commend is that most of the staffs are friendly and nice.Genuine Expedia guest review
