Relaxing place to stay

My husband and I really enjoyed our 1 week stay in this resort. The staff were really friendly and accommodating and we felt at home. Thanks to everyone who made our stay so special and to the welcoming owners who invited us to their Christmas party. Wish we can come back soon!

Great Service, Average F&B

Shanghai, China

Stayed during the peak season of CNY with the family. Overall, our experience was Very Good, especially the service of the staff—front desk, servers at the restaurant and drivers. All were very attentive and polite. The overall resort has a classic Old Filipino touch and interior design that makes it quite unique, too bad we didn’t get to enjoy the art gallery as it was under construction. Rooms are spacious, clean (Incl. toilet/bath) and have adequate cable channels and a DVD player. Amarela also has a library with a good selection of books, DVD movies and board games. The pool is a bit small but the beach is very nice—powdery sand with just a bit of coral and rocks (after the tide sets in, the beach will be filled with green sea weeds in the early morning that the staff will clean out). If you like to run, White Beach extends all the way to a part of Alona Beach (3km) but I didn’t get to explore further as there was a construction site and the terrain was a bit rocky. Didn’t rate Amarela 5 points due to the food. Let’s just say you can’t have majority of your meals at Amarela—will definitely need to venture out to look for other restos. Breakfast spread was quite limited, lunch/dinner selection also limited and of inconsistent quality. My preferred dishes: Grilled blue marlin/fish of the day, liempo (pork belly), beef salpicao, chicken curry and the suman (sticky rice) w/ mango. Some dishes were not as good and breakfast was definitely an ‘only-because-it-comes-with-the-room’ affair. Fruit selection is ok (ask for mangoes which are not in the buffet but available upon request). Wine selection very limited.
