El Nido experience won't be complete without the sun's rays reaching through your skin or retiring the day watching the sunset by the shores. You get to experience this at Rosanna's pension, especially if you make an early booking. For an affordable price, you get to experience a customer-friendly service, you'll feel like the pension is your second home. The... More

The place is very nice. The staffs were very accomodating. The services is good. The ambiance is good specially if you're room is beach front. The downside about this place is that they don't have a generator. When theres mo current you dont have any choice. However they always says that they do have a generator but it isnt install...

We stayed in Rosanna's Pension for 5 nights in a family lower floor beachside older building room. We absolutely loved the location! Breathtaking views of the beach to wake up to and watch the sunset. It was literally a few steps to the beach! The room was a little dark, kind of basic but still accommodating and the shower was...

We stayed at Rosanna's in April for 6 nights before moving on to other islands. The moment we arrived, we were met by the ever smiling Beth on reception, who checked us in very quickly. Despite travelling for 36 hours we were completely energised the minute we opened our bedroom door and saw the fantastic view from our balcony- ask... More

We booked the lower ground beachfront room and it was so nice to wake up with with the beautiful view of the beach each morning and have your breakfast by the balcony. The staff were very friendly and helpful with our needs and we also booked all our tours with them. They also cleaned our room everyday when we're out.... More

Let me start by saying that this pension is a tresor. Upon arrival we were welcomed by one little lady called Beth. She's lovely and always smiley. We have booked one room with sea view and I must say I tasted paradise. This place was the highlight of my trip in el nido. The pension is located in en nido... More

I would say this is the place that people would go to for the location. There's not much advertisement about the place but the pictures got me convinced to book and pay 50% 5 months in advance. It was very difficult to contact them good thing facebook worked! I got to talk to them for weeks with confirmation of my... More

We stayed here for 4 days, and it was so beautiful. The room was almost entirely a dark wood, the shower had good pressure, the beds were comfy, but LORD IN HEAVEN THE VIEW. It was also cheaper than a lot of the other crappy places on either side. They also included breakfast, and the views of the street is... More

The rooms at Rosanna's are basic, but if you get a beachfront room the view is absolutely stunning and definitely worth it just for this. It was in a good location within the main town. Overall, we would recommend a stay here.

I spent 2 weeks in the Philippines, and planned to backpack it the whole way. But after a rat chewed through my backpack in Sabang, I decided I was going to splurge a bit in El Nido. I stayed in a ocean-view room at Rosanna's for 1 week and even though it was a pricey deal compared to many other... More
