Very accommodating staffs especially the owner of the inn Although the toilet does not have flash but its not a big deal tho what matters most is how they treat their guest What I also love is their tourist guides! This is to shoutout for kuya TJ! Thank you for touring us around el nido! Keep up the good work!

We came here during high season since it is lunar new year. First of all the accommodation is direct located at a main road, it is very very noisy. Plus there is a mechanics workshop on the other side of the street, there are loud construction works going on every morning. The dogs and chickens make loud noises from 4... More

Very friendly staff!! They tell us everything we need to know about El nido. Rooms are nice and very comfortable bed. But only problem that we have was wifi. Because wifi didn't work at all. Location is ok, just quick drive with tricycle to the el nido center.

During our stay, it was low season and there was a passing typhoon, thus, the management decided to offer us up to 70% discount on the room rates. There were only 2 of us in a huge air-conditioned room (they call it the penthouse) with a sofa by the doorway, a queen size bed, and a private bathroom. The room... More

We contacted Novie's from Manila and explained to them our itinerary and dates of stay. Due to the size of our group and the time of our arrival in El Nido (3 AM), we wanted to have our accommodation fixed before reaching el nido. Rooms were available and for a group of 8 we managed to find a combination of... More

So I need to be honest, stayed for just one night, they offered us a discount on the room stay, however in the morning we had to pay full price?! - go figure. When we arrived, they just didn't seem prepared for us. The toilet wouldn't flush, there was an issue with the bathroom door. The room was stifling hot,... More

Spent three nights at Novie's despite no availability on our arrival. Management put us up for the first night in a nearby hotel and we stayed the balance at Novie's. Having spent roughly 300 nights in hotels in the last couple years, this place finds itself near the bottom. However, this is not surprising nor unexpected. For the money I... More

We stayed at the inn for 4 days and 3 nights in May 2014. (Sorry for the late review). Very accomodating, hospitable and friendly family. It's along the main road a few minutes away from the terminal and the town. We were also given advice what to do and where to go to. We availed of tour A and was... More

Very comfortable and homely feel with accommodating and personable staff. The nightly rate was excellent and great value for the area. Corong-Corong, in my opinion, is a far better option than staying in El Nido town. The inn itself is a 4 minute walk from Corong-Corong beach where we enjoyed the awesome sunset with friends almost each night. Las Cabanas... More

We stayed 11nights and were treated very well by the family! It was by far the friendliest inn we've been to and worth MORE than what we paid. It's very homely & authentic and we felt very comfortable there. The place was always clean and we were always greeted with a smile. The staff was so helpful and happily organized... More
