I stayed 4 days with my teenage son. First we had a room with a balcony right into a wall and not much view. We did arrive late at night without a reservation and the next morning we were able to changed into a lovely room with a magnificent view of the bay and beach. It is right on the... More

Firstly, let's not deny this place has an incredible view. All the beach from accommodation does and it is spectacular. Beyond that though, we had a few minor complains about this hotel but they all add up, hence the rating. Your room key, on the counter, 24 hours a day, with nobody at the desk!!: Whenever we handed our key... More

I would love to write a glowing review of this place. TJ was very nice and friendly, the rooms in the main building are very clean, the location is excellent, close enough to the music on the beach that it is but a short walk, but far enough away that that it does not disturb the sleep. The view from... More

I didn't actually stay here as they were sold out, but I was impressed by the look of the place, it is a 2 story wooden building on the beachfront. We enquired about prices, around $100usd a night, the Reception lady was very friendly and polite. So.. I would stay there if I go to El Nido again....

El Nido, by far, tops my most fave destinations in Phils. Many local tourists has the initial impression of the place as being so expensive and too isolated, therefore only a few of them has tried visiting the place so far. But through a bit of some research and reading online blogs, I found out that there's actually a lot... More

I saw this nice small 2-storey building a month ago while I was swimming on the beach in El NIdo a month ago. I was amazed by the balcony facing the beach, it must have been nice just sitting there watching the happenings on the beach. So last week I traveled to El Nido once again, I walked in the... More

This Filipino owned and operated place has four beach-front rooms with balcony, good for two-people, in a wooden two-story building, while directly across the road it has another two-story concrete building with eight more rooms, some good for four-people. A new concrete three-story beach-side building is just being completed and will provide an upgraded Reception area and additional smallish rooms... More

We initially planed 3 nights in El Nido, but sceneries, food and accomodation were that good that we extended it with 2 more nights. Nice staff member, good location ( main street) and reasonnable price for low season : 800P for a big DBL room with private bathroom and fan and a balcony. It's a good deal. They also offer... More
