They arranged the tours for us, which is cheaper compare to others and the best thing is.. their resident tour guide was really cool!! And yes.... I did recommend... More

I had a comfortable stay at the Pension. however, I found it very overpriced for the services offered and the quality of the rooms. I was staying in the building opposite of the beach at the other side of the street. it does not have wifi on the rooms (just on reception). I would suggest you to stay better at... More

This hotel is located on the beach, and the beachfront rooms have great views. While the upper beachfront rooms have elevated views, the ground floor beachfront rooms of the main building (e.g., Room 8) have patios that allow easy access to the beach etc. Do avoid the non beachfront rooms as these can be noisy (near the dive shops and...

Waterfront view is lovely. No basis to compare as I didn't stay in any other joint. Breakfast is ok to pass on - an egg, toast and instant coffee. Coffee served up at Palawan divers across the road is far better. Good reason to head over for a dive there. Place provides no toiletries, so come prepared with your own.... More

We went to Rosanna's after having booked a place which didn't suit our needs. We were pleasantly surprised about the rooms and rates of Rosanna's Pension. The rooms were clean, enough space for 2 persons, and everyday new sheets and towels. The desk employees are very friendly and could help us with almost everything we asked. We even booked a...

We stayed in rosanna's pension for three nights. It was 1700/night for a dubble which had a very nice balcony with seaview. It was clean with hotwater, ac. Wifi ok (a little slow) in the reception. The staff was very helpful with everything. In el nido there's no atm so it was a good thing we could pay by creditcard.... More

Moved in after a bad experience in Casa Cecilia. It has a great view to the beach, running hot water and an AC. It's reasonably priced and really comfortable. Wifi is low so I wouldn't count on it. You can pay with a credit card so that's a huge plus!!

When they show us the second floor with the view of Bacuit Bay. We'll we said that this is no brainer. We took it right away. Who wouldn't want a picturesque view of the bay and the soothing sound of the waves crashing on the beach. So we stayed in for 3 days. While the staff are friendly and service... More

Prior to staying at Rosanna's, we were booked at this horrible resort. My friend and I decided to walk along the main road and check what resorts had available rooms for our stay. Rosanna's was quite a bargain for last minute accommodations. Their room good for 4 pax was Php 1,800/night without breakfast and Php 2,100/night with breakfast. Thinking breakfast... More

When we arrived looking for a room we were told they had aircon, hot water, breakfast and wifi for 1,800 pesos per night, or 1,700 if we stayed more than one night. Most other hotels in El Nido were already full so we decided to stay at Rosanna's. While the room itself was fine and breakfast served outside on our... More
