I chose to stay here to celebrate my birthday but didn't turned out as what I was expecting. The management is rubbish and know nothing else but to suck out money from guests. We arrived January 11 after our whole day island hopping tour around 5 pm from another hotel not far from this hotel. Tired and exhausted, we walked... More

My wife and I stayed for 4 nights. We had a room near the sparkling pool. The beach was less than 50 metres from our front door. We paid 5300peso a night. It's a very short walk to town but the place is very quiet. The rooms are spacious and the beds are very comfortable. Water pressure in the shower... More

After we had very robbed by Pura Vida management we have found this paradise place and were very happy to spend out 6 nights there. The place is very nice and quiet. The swimming pool is great, not forget to mention there are only 2 hotels with swimming pools in El Nido. The electricity didn't bother us cause we have... More

Perfect location, unmatched view, great staff, what's not to like. Located right on the edge of town. Walk down the beach to restaurants. Walk up the street to shops, restaurants etc. Clean, well maintained, excellent service. Does suffer from the El Nido electricity outage from 6AM - 2PM though. So, plan with that in mind.

El Nido is not the best place for great accommodation at low prices. So I am giving this place a high mark because it manages to stand out among its peers. It's right on the beach, and the rooms are quite spacious and clean. Some are not maintained very well, and some are in a terrible location with lots of... More

The resort has only 10 rooms / cottages around the pool, and is directly at the beach - and that's what makes it worth its money. You walk out of your room and are on the beach and can head to your bar or restaurant or boat trip. And that's what el Nido is about. Yes we were also a... More

Stayed here for 5 nights in a clean poolside bungalow. Resort is well maintained daily. The staff is incredibly friendly and always welcome you with a smile and offer a helping hand. Because of lowseason the restaurant offered only breakfast and just an American or Continental one. Besides breakfast our stay was pleasant and the locations is silent and still... More

We moved over to El Nido Garden after our first 2 nights spent at the Beach Hotel. This place was a little more expensive, room was 4000 php pesos, but well worth the difference in cost! Absolutely Beautiful grounds, villas are well maintained, pool was clean and super refreshing to come home to after a full day on a boat... More
