when we first arrived by the establishment i was a bit surprised to find out that there was no front desk where the guests could proceed and the place looks a bit crampy. however once you get to know the staff you would barely find it hard where to look for them if you need help. the best part of...

I availed their 4D/3N package tour which included free round trip van transfer from Puerto Princesa, room accommodation, free breakfast, tours A and C with free lunch and snorkels for my family of 5. I am not even sure where to start because Anang Balay has provided us the best service from the transportation, rooms, food, and tours. 1. Transportation... More

After a lot of research, we stumbled across Anang Balay, but what sold us on it was the owner Anafe who was tremendously helpful throughout not just with the booking but our trip planning and helped make it what it was. Located at the end of the row right behind the beach, our room looked out onto the water and... More

Rooms- Very Clean! We were very impressed that we left our room very untidy because we are in hurry for the tour and came back very organize and clean. (Valuables such as money, ipad, dslr are inside the room) Great location. Internet- tolerable since we are in the first floor. And we need it for our work. Service- very satisfied!... More

I stayed here in Nov 2014 and was more than thrilled. I emailed back and forth with Anafe Reynoso prior to my stay to confirm my reservation. She was so kind in replying and giving us all the information we needed for our stay. After I was unable to wire the deposit money to her and confirm my reservation, she... More

Anang balay is located in one of the main streets of el nido near many bars and restaurants. We had the big room on the ground floor which has a little porch and view over the harbour. The room is clean and spacious, and has both aircon and a fan. The bathroom however is really small and very basic. Sink... More

Loved this place! They even let us cook our own food, Gatang Alimango & Chopsuey! Anang Balay staff were very accommodating. All I can say is "Aprub na aprub!" Definitely, will stay in Anang Balay when we go to El Nido Paradise again. ^_^
