Stayed for 3 days with husband and kids.. Very quiet resort. Food was great though limited offers. Staff were very friendly and accommodating. Beach area okay but not advisable to kids with lots of sea urchin.. since it has a small marine sanctuary infront. Nice view. Rooms are small but still okay with WIFI.

A beautiful, well managed resort for the perfect sun n sand holiday. The décor and artifacts collection is a labour of love by the owners, who reside on the property and have an eye for the smallest of details. The rooms are well appointed and tastefully maintained with all the amenities available on the premises itself - pool, diving and...

We spent 4 nights here recently. It's a beautiful retreat - small, quiet, very comfortable. It's not modern or flash, but is beautifully furnished and decorated and has a serene atmosphere. The rooms are not huge but very comfortable and we had a balcony with a superb view over the gardens, pool and ocean. The resort has a lovely, private...

This was a "hidden gem" hotel. The staff is great, the grounds are beautiful, and the food delicious. We also took advantage of the island tour offered by the hotel and it did not disappoint. The hotel also called us a tricycle that we took to Alona beach and back. It's a smaller hotel, and we went after the typhoon...

i booked this hotel last September for Nov. 4-7 stay. It was a very smooth transaction with their reservations agents and answered all my emails in a timely manner.

We were in Amerela from Nov 6 to Nov 9 and we really liked the place, Staff were friendly and accommodating, rooms were very clean and I love their food.
