"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Rooms were outdated.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
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
"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
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
"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
the water stinks, our room is at the far end of the executive suites, and the elevator stinks as well, sorry but i didn't enjoy my stay with this hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice & comfortable hotel close to the beach."
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

Location is great. But service is poor. Staff wasn't friendly. The water rush was small- toilet bowl can't flush properly. Air con wasn't strong either. Breakfast totally cannot make it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"A lot of things to improve on"
I will consider other hotels even if I need to pay a bit more next time. Trust the other reviews for this hotel. Location and service are probably the only plus, the rest, needs improvements. Our rest room was not clean, no hot water. We needed to take breakfast before 6:30am, or else be ready for long queues. Food is also pretty bland. The pool near […] the beach needs cleaning. Overall, did not like our stay in this hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We enjoyed our stay will be back next year. Our room is clean and location is near the beach.Genuine Expedia guest review
Unfortunately I have nothing to say positive about this Hotel This Hotel is a Insult to 3*** The Rooms are uninspiring and dirty, the so called service was 0 , imagine you have to ask to service your room and sign if it's ok for them to enter your room if not present , The Bathroom should have been condemned , greesy bath surface, dirty tiles, black […] mould festured every seal around the bath and sink and the fixtures . I could go on but I think the management of the hotel needs seriously to look at procedures , cleanliness been the upmost important , especially service , I was not even asked anything about my stay , very strange Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"good value in good location"
The breakfast buffet was awful, with so many food options nearby, i would pass. Very helpful staff, was able to accommodate a very early check in. Beachfront location for under $100 in boracay during peak season is always a great deal. Would stay here again, just wouldn't eat there.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"La Carmela... get what you pay for"
I have stayed at La Carmela a total of two times now. Once back in 2010 with my family and it was decent, that was the time before the upgrades and construction of additional buildings. I stayed here again in February 2014 for 4 nights, but my experience was actually disppointing. I checked in at the Executive Wing reception desk. The room itself was […] big with two double beds. We had a decent sized balcony that did not have a view. We had one of those bathrooms with the bath tub and shower attached (personally not a fan), and the detachable shower head was not very good (it's hard to explain - basically had to take a shower holding the shower head because the water would go straight past my head when attached to its holder... not ideal for short people). The tap in our bathroom sink had zero pressure so we didn’t use it. The beds were really hard and uncomfortable, pillows were okay. If you're use to housekeeping on a regular basis, this isn't the hotel for you - you have to ask reception to have your room cleaned, linens refreshed and towels replenished. The breakfast buffet was not impressive, we had it the first morning but opted to have breakfast elsewhere for the rest of our stay. The staff are friendly but not helpful. They would greet us “happy morning” no matter what time of day it was... 4pm or even 9pm we would still get “happy morning” which gave us some amusement. It took 3 requests for them to have someone change the battery for our safety deposit box in our room. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Close to the beach is the only redeeming quality!"
Not sure where to start, there were a lot of costs that you did not know about up front and no functioning ATM's anywhere. The shower flooded, the sink stopper was broken, the toilet did not flush well. They ran out of towels. The breakfast buffet was a disaster, cold food, too many people so we did not even try to eat another meal at the hotel (too […] many other great restaurants in the area). I had emailed them about help with transportation (because it says on their website they help with transpo) and did not get any help. It was a very disappointing stay. I will stay elsewhere when I go back to Boracay. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
