Worth it.

Manila, Philippines

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.

Unforgettable Place and People . . .

Me and my Wife went to Panglao (June 16-18, 2018) and we arrived at the resort, the usual welcome drink (calamansi with honey). My wife loved it and I was also impressed. The staff was very corteous (waiter/waitresses, room boys, guards, driver, etc). The setting of the place would be excellent if you're looking for peace/quiet and a nature lover, You will wake up to the sound of birds singing in the morning (5 am) and you can take a walk along the beach and admire the sunrise. The place is very secure, with a security guard at the beach front and life guard on duty beside the pool. The food was excellent nothing fancy, the price was good. The only regret I had was the renovation of the Gallery which made it unavailable for guests. The swimming pool is just about the right size considering the number of guests they can accommodate. The place is not crowded plenty of space and plants. The rooms were designed to have an antique theme, the bathrooms were clean and cable tv signals ok, air conditioning is good and the place is really conducive to relaxation, the first reason we went there. The driver told us that we would be also given a 15% discount on our next booking in the future. I'm planning to take the entire family soon in the future. Highly recommended place.
