I've made numerous phone calls and emails since Jan 3, 2016 as I'm trying to book for 2 beachfront rooms which they said are still available at that time. I asked for their account details to make the payment but every time I call their booking officer they always say that they will give me a call back and they... More

We arrived at night and we emerged from our room in the morning we were pleasantly surprised of the stunning view we had from our room! The freshwater pool is in the middle of the resort and has the same amazing view as you swim. The hotel is at the quieter end of El Nido so the view is less... More

This is rated as very good from the perspective that we had a true getaway. There is no WIFI in the rooms, the electricity went out a few times but was fixed every time, but we were away. We could relax and had a clean place to sleep and a beautiful pool with an amazing view to hang out at... More

Rooms are fab and set in nice gardens with a lovely pool. However, there is a clause in the contract that you can't bring food or drink from outside the resort and if you do there is a charge of 700 pesos per bottle. This is very expensive when you bear in mind that a bottle of beer is generally... More

We, a family of 5 with children of 11, 14 and 11, stayed at the resort for 4 nights in November. El Nido Garden Resort offers a good resort in central El Nido including a nice pool area and bungalows overlooking the beach and bay. The huts are not luxurious, but has all required amenities including verandas. Internet is not... More

This was one of my most disappointing accomodation experiences ever. We had prepaid for one night using Agoda website which cost approx 7400 Pesos. As such our expectations of a hot shower and some creature comforts were high. When we arrived around 8pm and got to the room we were very disappointed.... There was no hot water (at all! And...

The rooms are clean but noisy (you can hear the neighbors and their doorbell is like ours) and for the money you pay (we had to pay 150 us dollars /night) you don't even get a reading light, a proper light in the bathroom, hot water (cold or very little warm), sleepers, hand towels (I had to ask for these)...

Start with the good things: Location is wonderful, walking distance to restaurants, right on the beach, great pool and outdoor area. Nice rooms in bungalow style accommodation with covered outdoor seating, great for rainy season! Friendly staff. Improvements needed: Tiny things - hand soap, hand towels in rooms would be good. Safe did not work. TV reception is very poor.... More

Hotel is good but they serve only one type of breakfast. On our second day, we asked if we can have the typical filipino instead of the american breakfast. Their staff said yes. We just got surprised that no body told us that it would have an additional charge not until the morning. Additionally, their staff are committing to some... More

We stayed one night at the Garden Beach Resort, had a pleasant nights sleep, room was clean so was the linen. The shower leaves a lot to be desired though, water temp and pressure a bit of a problem, although I am led to believe it's an El Nido thing with the water pressure not being really strong, and water...
