One of the cheapest accommodations in El Nido. That is, if you're looking for something along the beachfront. We booked online and got an air-conditioned room good for two for P1300. Breakfast is not included. There's also free WiFi. The Room The room is pretty basic. You get a blanket, towels, and a safety deposit box that is locked with... More

Beachfront with the lowest rate I've seen on the internet. Hassle free transaction via e-mail. Clean rooms with free towels. Wi-Fi is free with strong signal. Near to everything! Offers free coffee and water. The veranda is a nice place to relax with a great view. Jasmine (staff) is accommodating and friendly. Overall, I would recommend this place to budget... More

I went there with a group of 9 people so we occupied all 4 rooms. The rooms are decent and clean. Two rooms have private bathrooms, and the other two shares a bathroom. The staff was very accommodating and kind. She booked our tours and even went out of her way to run errands for us. The only down side... More

Having already checked out a couple of places we were beginning to think we had two options in El Nido - expensive or grim (or far back form the beach). But on a hunch we went up the wooden staircase outside Casa Buenavista and were happily surprised. The rooms are clean, tidy and comfortable. The owners and staff are very... More

The room is affordable. Though it doesn't have a cable tv, it's fine because you'd prefer to go out all day for some activities. Two thumbs up for Ate Jasmine (the hotel's caretaker)! She's very accommodating and very nice. She did almost everything for us. Like tour bookings, travel, etc. She gave us what we need. Even advised us of... More

Location: Superb! It is located at the second floor of a building facing the breathtaking Bacuit Bay. All 4 rooms of this 'rental house' don't have views of the bay. However, there is a common balcony that has a panoramic view of the bay. See attached photos. It is also centrally located. There are a lot of restaurants, shops, tricycles,... More

Nice guesthouse, Good size room, friendly staff, right on the beach, good location in the town. Shared bathroom was fine, room could get a little noisy late at night/early in the morning, but overall was ok. Decent wifi. OG's restaurant on the seafront is great, good happy hour from 4-9pm.
