La Carmela de Boracay Resort Hotel Review

Please CLICK the LIKE BUTTON!

 





Went to Boracay on a spur of the moment. I have a week off before my nannies will go on their summer vacations. I was browsing which province to go and I chose Boracay. I searched online and found La Carmela de Boracay. The facade of their hotel looks promising.

Their rate for their cheapest room is Php 3,200. I booked 2 nights of the hotel. My review for this hotel is mixed. It's actually 50, 50.

Here's why :

Plus Factors :

1. Great customer service. I phoned in for my reservations around 1am during the day of my arrival. Marah answered my call and took down my details and told me that she will endorse this to the reservations that morning. I called around 11 am just to follow up if the morning people got my reservation since I'll be arriving that day around 3pm.

2. Efficient Airport Transfer Crew, they carry your bags. I was with my two toddlers with 2 nannies.

3. Efficient Check in. They took time in answering my questions. Another downside of this is the long lines but who cares, as long as it is my turn, they take time answering mine.

4. Nice resort surroundings.

5. Wifi service at the room at 100 per hour is manageable. Longer hours, much cheaper.

6. Beautiful restaurant, Bad food.

7. Efficient staff, they serve fast. They greet customers.

8. Very clear cable television.

9. Nice comfortable bed.

Things to Improve :

1. Buy brand new vans for the airport transfers. They are using very old L300 vans where during turns, you can hear the wheels scrubbing against the van's body frame.

2. Room for 3,200 is very basic. Look and fee is like a pension house or a quickie motel. The hotel surroundings are beautiful but their standard rooms needs REFURBISHING. I think what's inside is more important that what's on the exterior.

3. Towels are very old.

4. Toilet bowl is so low. They added new tiles without moving the toilet bowl so it looks like a toilet bowl for kids.

5. Bad Food.

6. Bad Room lighting.

Non Working Phone at Shangri-la Boracay

I was trying to confirm my reservations with the hotel but the main phone line is attached to a fax line. After 2 rings, it has a fax tone.

I tried it 3 times, and it was just about 9:30 pm.

Imagine, no person at the front desk. CRAZY.

I am learning to love MYSELF

Ate the tuna sandwich already.

Finally, I have learned to love MYSELF and take care of my body.

After years of neglect, sitting almost 8 hours at a given time, my long lost lean body has turned into a health scare. Everyday, I'm often provided with options of what food to eat. Normally, I usually choose that are satisfying to my palate, normally Jollibee and Burger King take outs of their delicious burgers.

After promising myself that I should take care of my body for the next 5 years, I'm more conscious of the menu and what's on the buffet table.

Today at Boracay, we went to an all buffet at the La Carmela Resort Buffet. Their dinner buffet is only 270, and it includes refillable ice teas and a vast array of meats, fish, seafood and salads.

First thing I got was the barbecued pork, but I limited my rice to only 1 cup. Then I saw some clams with cheese and I got I think 15 pieces. Then for my dessert is fresh veggies with caesar salad and sour creme sauces.

I just drank 1 ice tea.

Losing weight is a difficult task and you have to do it generally since you cannot do it overnight. You should also have a strong determination since you face your weakness every meal times.

It's already midnight today and I ordered a midnight snack, the waiter told me, that they have cheeseburgers then I asked if they have tuna sandwich and they did. That's what I ordered.

Finally, finally, small steps on learning to love myself again.
