Boracay Island, Aklan: La Carmela de Boracay - Hotel Review

DATES STAYED: June 12 - 14, 2013

La Carmela de Boracay Resort is strategically located at the beach front area along the boundary between Boracay Island's Station 2 and Station 3. It's been made famous because local Philippine artists have been promoting it on TV. Now that's the power of advertising!

La Carmela de Boracay Resort's website is being updated regularly so it's very convenient to check the current room rates, facilities and amenities, and room availability.

Now for my hotel review, let me divide it into PROS and CONS. These ratings are just based on my own experience, observation, and satisfaction level the time I stayed at the hotel. Let me know of your own judgement after your stay at the hotel.

  • Stone throw away from the beach front
  • Easy to locate and a very popular tourist resort
  • CHEAP room rates for group of people or termed as their "Barkadahan Package"
  • Swimming Pools and elevators are plus factors
  • Beds are comfortable
  • Toilet is clean.
  • Hotel staffs are not accommodating and the resort's contact numbers are unreachable.
  • Small Room for a "semi-deluxe" type and not well-lit
  • Room service is inefficient
  • Wireless Internet connection is NOT FOR FREE
  • Complimentary Breakfast meals are not enticing and not delicious

However to sum it up, I am satisfied with my stay at La Carmela. Though I believe that there are always room for improvements. They already have a good beach front location, so next on their list should be maintaining their hotel facilities...and a delicious buffet breakfast! :)
