    We loved this hotel and the modern unique shape . We had a fabulous swim up room excellent. The stay was very relaxing and enjoyable under very stressful times but the staff were always smiling and had Gel in all public areas . We found the staff to be very helpful from our maid to the reception and breakfast staff and also everyone we came into contact with . Our room was kept spotless as was all the hotel areas. We will be back in better times stay safe all of you and look forward to seeing you all again . Thank you everyone

  • 6,0.Good


    I spent 11 nights in July 2019. I did not like the design or style. It was cold and uninviting. It lacked colour and warmth. The colour scheme is metal gray for the most part. The entry is very unimpressive. A walkway over a shallow water feature. I felt I was entering a funeral parlour. The pools were smaller than expected. The breakfast items were cold. The eggs benedict was disappointing served on untoasted muffin with a white sauce and parmesan cheese. Every time I went to have dinner in Spice restaurant it was always Japanese ala carte or Japanese buffet. I had a Pool Access Grand room which was spacious but also lacked colour and an umbrella. I had some nice meals in the Kokulo Beach Club restaurant. I would not return to this resort.

    Seniors overview of La Vela

    grounds well kept staff always helpful and respectful, front area "Kokula" cafe pool dangerous as pool is quite narrow area taken up by sun lounges over water and areas where tiling is only 6 inches or so under water there is not enough space for actual areas to swim, we noticed children jumping and diving over these areas also people drinking in pool with glass wine glasses, large pool area excellent, it is a shame that sun lounges cannot be placed under trees in beach area as more shaded areas are necessary

  • 10,0.Exceptional

    A great place to stay for anyone. This hotel has it all 3 different pools to choose from. A large pool with children’s area, a relaxing pool by the bar, or a pool right on the beach. The beach is there if you want an ocean swim. Ok for a dip a bit rough, but we were there in wet season so would be better and calm in the high season I imagine. Spoilt for choice. At the pool all the loungers are sitting in ankle deep water so you just need to be careful with your belongings. Rooms are spacious and plenty of space for luggage. We have 2 teenagers that had their own room with 2 double beds. All the staff are friendly and very helpful. The food at the hotel is great but it is definitely cheaper to eat at the local restaurants if you are on a budget. All of these are no more than a 10 min walk from the hotel. Shops and the local markets are great for cheap shopping at night. The local night market is best for shopping, the hotel has a little open air taxi and will drop you there. We found a great tour place Go On Tour. Gabby & Odty are super friendly and fun. Be aware if you go in the low season as we did some tours will not be available as the tour guides are not allowed to visit the islands in the low season around this time with seas not so calm.. The advantage of going in the low season is it is very quiet.

    Nice location, friendly staff, clean and comfortable room. Not the best swimming beach, but beautiful for sunsets and quick dips to cool off. The pool, bar, and restaurant is on the beach, so you can’t go wrong staying here.
