Room rate is like 1800 above I think but we got ours for 1K because the flash is broken which we didn't really mind as long as it is not clogged! Room is a bit cramped and dark. I can hear EVERYTHING outside since our room is located along the street and not the beach so it feels like I... More

This place was heaven to finally arrive to after our 12 hour uncomfortable local bus journey. We had a few choices in what room we woud stay in, and ended up in one the cottages on the beach, your own steps to that warm golden sand. This really impressed me, and there structures are all made in the traditional filipino... More

This place is nice view and cheap for beachfront. Only 800 to 1000 peso double depending on air con or fan. Nice view for breakfast. Air con room was great. Wifi excellent. My only downside is people noise in morning as rooms all face each other down the hall. Staff cleaned room and sheets every couple days. Beds comfy and... More

We stayed @ Rovic's last July 29 to Aug 2, 2013. I've traveled with my family. My son really enjoyed the place, because of it's location. We can walk around the town freely because of its proximity. We've hopped-in to our boats just in front of Rovic's during Island Hopping tours. They have served yummy grilled food, veggies and seasoned... More

If you are on a tight budget who wants a beachfront accomodation, this is the place for you. We paid only 1,800php per night on a room. Really cheap compared to the other beachfronts in elnido. But ofcourse, you get what you pay for. Dark and small rooms and bathroom. You hear through the walls conversations from the other room.... More

We stayed there a couple of nights because we had no other choice. Given the much lower quality of service, the rooms are not cheap enough. Walls are paper thin, you basically hear everybody passing in the corridor. The sink in our room was falling down and the bathroom door hardly closed. We could not use the shower hose to... More

We only had breakfast here, but the service was poor and the food mediocre. The quality and quantity is not in line with restaurants in the neighbourhood....Too bad with such a fantastic location they could have made much more of the place!

Staying in Rovic's pension was a disaster. First, the room smelled of poop in the morning, which we don't know why. The room was so small that the room door could only be opened about 1/4 of the way because of one bed is stuck in the doorway. The sheets smelled of we don't know what but was bearable I... More

Two things that I like is the rate and the beachfront.. However, I wouldn't wanna stay there again.. You can hear the walking in guest knock at night, electricity is problematic, beds/rooms aren't so impressive...

Oh Rovic's, Rovic's Rovic's. We stayed three nights with you, I'm so sorry but they were just terrible. The walls were not sound proof, so we heard everything! from the people next door, the tricycle in the street and the people walking in the corridors! In fact, they all sounded as if they were in the room with us. We... More
