My fiancee & I recently stayed at the Viewdeck for 2 nights, & we had a nice stay on the whole. The good points about the place were; (1) the staff are all friendly & made us feel very welcome (2) The view from our room (Room Number 9) was stunning, overlooking the ocean & mountains in the distance. (3)... More

First of all I made a mistake in my reservation dates and it was too late too cancel so I called the hotel and talked with the owner Rudy, he was super nice and changed our dates. The location is 7-10 minutes walk to the beach, the views are great, also living on the cliff in the jungle feels pretty... More

I like staying at Viewdeck. On days I go to El Nido and need to book last minute, I go to Viewdeck because of its affordability and its nice location. The views are nice at the top, but the climb? not so nice. Since I can't do anything about the location of the room, I will comment on the service.... More

This quaint place is just perfect: it's not too far from the bus/van terminal, along the road, far enough from the town to give that peace and quiet, yet close enough to walk from your room to the town and the beach. My fiancé was lucky to be able to book the upper deck rooms - which we highly recommend... More

It was good to be up on the hill overlooking both the ocean and the cliffs and avoiding the noisy little town. We loved the fresh air blowing through the cottage and the balcony where we could sit, read and enjoy the view. The staff was very helpful booking tours and in the restaurant. It was quite a walk to... More

Well, where to begin. After viewing the photos and reading the reviews, we had high expectations for our stay at Viewdeck. Sadly, said photos/reviews were very flattering, to say the least. On the plus side, our room was very clean, and the A/C was good. The view from our [Upper Deck] balcony was indeed spectacular, and the location was only... More

Before booking I have read many rewievs that were prising views from cottages and the only thing I can do is confirm everything I read. Views from terrace were outstanding. But to have such a great view you must first climb your cottage what is really tiring. Good thing is that staff will help you to bring your baggage to... More

I've read reviews about El Nido Viewdeck before booking our accomodations here and frankly I was swayed by their testimonials. Upon arrival, I was kind of shocked and disappointed about how it turned out. The room was very dingy and all features are very basic. For a place that you've paid for more than Php 1,500 a night, you'd expect... More

Quite dissapointed. Although the location is nice, the rooms are quite basic. Basic toilette, with no paper!!! Basic breakfast. I heard everything what was happening in the next room and it was not really funny. You really have to be fit in order to get into your upper room, meaning that the distance between stairs is too big. So it... More

Just about 5 mins. walk away from the town proper, El Nido Viewdeck Inn is a good location for a breathtaking view. Rudy, the owner, and the rest of the staff are helpful. Free breakfasts are a plus as well. They helped us with the tours, book a van back to Puerto Princesa and so much more. Just be notified... More
