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

The staff here are very serviceminded and friendly and they help you out with everything you need. Ask for coffe and they bring it to your balcony few minutes later. We are 3 persons who went to El Nido without a reservation, and lucky enough we got a room here. We had no plans for how long we would stay,... 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
