La Carmela de Boracay
Travel Blogs from Boracay
Up early on our second full day here. Real early. 5:30. Not quite used to the time change yet I guess. We are off to Boracay today but not until noon. A couple off coffees and we went for a walk to get some Pan De Sal. As small sweet breakfast roll that you buy warm right from the bakery. Mmmmmmm.
The town early morning is quite quiet. …

After Ati Atihan, we decided to stay around Lezo for a couple of days, just to relax.

TravelPod Member ReviewsLa Carmela de Boracay
The resort is beautiful; however, the rooms are slightly deceiving. They have not been renovated for some time and could be cleaner. The hotel is currently under construction as they have added some new rooms. The hallways are VERY noisy with people talking and doors slamming. So, if you plan to sleep later than 6:30 or 7am, you may not want to stay here. The rooms/hallways give a "hostel" type feeling. However, the hotel is safe, secure, and in an excellent location...right on the beach and just down from many restaurants, shopping, etc. The swimming pool is small, but really clean and nice. Internet is only available in the restaurant/pool area. The staff are very friendly; however, the service is not exceptional. The breakfast is the same almost everyday and not worth bragging about. There are many other restaurants around, so not an issue. We would definately stay here again as it is one of the nicest hotels for it's price range.
