    Away from the crowds”
    So nice to have a private beach away from the crowds- not fantastic for swimming as a lot of sea grass but still lovely. Great pool and quaint rooms. Enjoyed our stay very much. Would best suit older couples as away from night life and restaurants.

    Located next to the beach, with its own pool as well, this hotel is a good place to spend a relaxing holiday. The common area are decorated with the owner's private collection of paintings and sculpture giving it a unique style of its own. It includes a collection of books and dvd one can borrow. Rooms are comfortable with a view of the garden and the sea.

    Breakfast is superb, staff were all friendly. Beach is beautiful except the sea urchins but it's not really a deal breaker. We're not able take the sea trip because of the storm so we now have a reason to return here.

    Their staff is very friendly, room was really good and they have well-thought of amenities. Our room has a nice view of the beach. They have tons of books and DVDs which you can borrow. Highly recommended resort if you want a peaceful and quiet vacation. For improvement: Breakfast buffet is a bit limited and can be tiring after 3 mornings.

    Eco-friendly effort and lovely staff with great comfort and service. Tranquility, great beach and sea sanctuary area to snorkel in. Good food and cocktails. Free airport shuttle. If anything to improve: replace bottled water with jugs in rooms, more friendly multi-language signage for guests re. Respect for the reef and leaving starfish and other creatures in it alone!

    Gecko resort? haha”
    Amarela resort is one of the pricier ones in Bohol and not very near Alona beach (where the nightlife at), you gotta take a tuktuk 150 piso, 7 mins ride to Alona. Convenience stall is 7 mins walk away from the resort. First impression when i reach there? SO MANY GECKOS on their ceilings and walls. When I settle down for dinner at their restaurant, i looked up and im like holy shyt. BUT thankfully, none in our room. So obviously if there are geckos means there are quite a bit of flies n mosquitos n insects here n there, but most importantly none in our room. So we end up getting room service every day so i don't have to eat under the geckos who might drop down anytime. Other than that, staff was great and friendly. And there's really nothing much to do at their White beach just outside Amarela resort other than suntan and maybe hear some locals nearby singing karaoke.

    The Department of Tourism rated Amarela resort as a 3 star hotel. It has a pool, a library and a garden. The beachfront is kept clean by the hardworking staff of the hotel. Panglao's beachfront is a long stretch of powdery white sand. It's nice to walk barefoot on the shore but wearing aqua shoes is recommended when swimming. There are sea urchins in the area. You would easily notice that Amarela's beach front is the cleanest among the rest and the most quiet. Nearby resorts have loud karaoke machines. Low tide happens at around 3pm. Sad to say that there were several plastic wrappers, bottles on the beach and seaweed. The staff of Amarela do their best in cleaning their area. I just hope that people would be more environment conscious. There are areas "infested" with seaweeds but you just have to walk a bit further to enjoy parts where there is less seaweed. I saw a lot of starfish near the shore. My dad and I enjoyed swimming as early as 530am. The water was calm and not that shallow. The best part of our stay was the food in the hotel's restaurant. It was delicious and not pricey at all. Those who worked in the restaurant were attentive and accommodating. It could have been better if frontdesk was more attentive in setting expectations. I thought we had issues in checking out but turned out that we were waiting on other guests before we board the free van to the airport. The frontdesk personnel could have been more proactive. He could also smile a bit more. Overall, I loved our stay. Thank you, Amarela.

    The place is far but free transport negates that but all other travels like going to panglao n city has charges. Food is not good. Price of food regular for hotel but taste really is not that good. Beach is good but beside it I believe are public beaches or lower end resort. Pool is heated which is good. Room is nice specially when u consider he is one of the cheaper in terms of 4 star hotel

    clean, quiet and peaceful place very attentive and accommodating staff, responds to inquiries immediately. very spacious place and plenty of plants/flowers in the garden. plenty of things to do such as kayaking, swimming in the pool/beach, board games & a whole lot of movies to watch (you just need to borrow the dvd from the frontdesk) the only thing i dont like is that the aircon is not functioning as intended. had set the temp to 16 degrees but it seems it is only 24 degrees.

    We had a great stay at Amarela. The house has a wonderful setting in beautiful gardens with sea views and a lovely pool. All of the staff were very friendly and helpful, particularly with arranging a tricycle or car to take you to other parts of the island if needed. The restaurant on site does good food at reasonable prices. When arranging pick up from the port in Tagbilaran the communication was excellent with really quick responses. We would definitely come back!
