I stayed here for 2 nights I believe around April 2015. I was staying at Rico's Cottages which I liked but since El Nido didn't really have an ATM, I was running low on cash. This place accepts credit cards but they charge a fee. I'm not sure how much it was but I think around 6 to 10%? Anyway,... More

Stayed here throughout the 4 nights here at El Nido with my family (parents and 3 siblings). We booked a deluxe room for my parents and a deluxe family room for the 4 of us. However the family room was too tiny for the 4 of us (basically a deluxe room with extra beds) so we decided to split into... More

Our relatives made the reservation in this hotel. I was expecting of a clean but cozy budget hotel yet I was disappointed. I was looking forward to sleep and rest in a clean and cozy room after a long land trip from Puerto Princesa. Ugh, I have to say, I wasn't able to sleep in 3 nights that I've stayed... More

Truly the WORSE hotel that we have ever stayed at. Upon check in (and after such a long commute from Puerto Princesa!) we had to wait such a long time for the front desk to let us into our room. We had all the documents that we needed to prove that we had booked with a travel agent but because... More

When we stayed at this hotel they were busy renovating it, which can be a reason why we didn't really liked it. The rooms were new but they still seemed old somehow. The wifi only worked at the reception but it is like that everywhere in El Nido. The bed was hard and the bathroom a bit dirty. But it... More

The water pressure is low so takes a while to... More

Funny enough this place is now known as Rainforrest beach hotel. I guess they got enough BAD reviews so they decided to change name rather than improve on... Everything! Service is bad. Staff selling trips to gain commissions Rooms are cold and not clean - your champermaids don't bother to fix anything you ask for. Food is below average. And... More

Stayed here last May 2012, booked through Agoda. Price is ok. Location is perfect. Service - uhm, not really. No service at all, it's like they don't care much as long as you pay. Expensive souvenir shop but i think it is because we are in El Nido. There's a lot of mosquitoes in the room specially after the electricity... More

Overpriced, although we were given a discount, but compared to others, their rates are still higher than other beach fronts. Unfortunately, we didn't check the other accommodations after we learned that our preferred hotel does not have rooms available anymore. This hotel was the second hotel we went to. We got the room with the jacuzzi at the balcony with... More

There is no electricity between 6am and 2pm which makes it very difficult to pack in the dark (the windows are very small and you cant see out of them). Also no internet at this time. The window did not close all the way, letting in warm, humid air and pests. We stayed in two rooms and one smelled of... More
