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...

I stayed here for 2 nights with the lady friend after 2 nights at tapik and man the air conditioning was a welcome relief. They have about ten rooms arranged like bungalows. The pool is average size but there is a shortage of lounge chairs and seating. The grounds are well maintained. The WiFi doesn't work in the rooms and... More

This is for sure the best hotel en El Nido. It is situated in the town but not in the crowded streets. So you get to be in El Nido but in a very peaceful and quiet place. Each room is elegant and has direct view and access to the pool and beach. The hotel staff is very nice and... More

We stayed there for over a week and enjoyed our stay but there is some aspects that could be improved. Good things: the view is great and the location is super convenient - few steps from the beach with numerous bars and restaurants and so also close to boats leaving for Island hopping tours in the morning. The hotel swimming... More

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
