The hotel is smaller but the staff is very nice. The room is good as is the location. Their pool was the only warm pool for the whole 6 week vacation visiting 6 pools. It's an infinity pool overlooking the ocean. Really nice! The beach is real nice but not swimmable. It's too shallow for a long distance. It's good...

This lovely quaint hotel is away from all the noise and a peaceful retreat. Food was good and some specials most days. We stayed 4 nights and it was easy to get a tricycle to get to Panglao to the market and basilica and also to Alona beach. It was a short walk to some local shops and you could...

If you are in Bohol and want something really comfortable to stay at, choose Amarela. Their staffs are very accommodating and they will attend to whatever you'll be needing, may it be about in your hotel room, Bohol tour and more. We stayed there for two nights and the room was really neat. Since we wanted a DIY kind of...

The standard room was small fit for two adults but amenities were complete. Even if we booked the smallest room, our stay at the resort was enjoyable. Would recommend to book at least two nights at the resort to try out all available amenities and to go around the resort.

Our stay in Amarela Resort was perfect. We had a corner room in the second floor and we had a beautiful view on the pool, sea and the sunrise. Amarela is offering a lot, such as snorkelling equipment, a huge library with books and films and also some games. The beach at Amarela is nice, but difficult to enter. You...

We stayed there for 3 days, enjoyed the beach and the massages that were great and not overpriced like some places. Wi-Fi is approximative like most places in the Philippines. We wish our room had a bigger balcony but it was very clean. Since the hotel is quite isolated, we ate every night at the restaurant, food was good but...

Great place to stay. The employees were nice and helpful, decent price which included breakfast & airport or nearby transfer service, good location (near beach with hilltop view) & amenities with a nice garden, rest & play areas and museum. My only minor gripe is that the wifi reception in my room was not good!

Almost right on the pristine white beach, this cozy laid-back resort is perfect for anyone. I brought 2 kids, aged 14 and 8, and they loved it even though it is secluded and quiet. The room was very clean and nicely decorated and had the most fantastic view! Room was close to the restaurant, pool and lobby. Day excursions available....
