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

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

Cheaper than most waterfront hotels with aircon. Free wifi. Unlimited coffee. Staff are constantly cleaning. Exceptional service: hanged up our swimming gears to dry, looked for a cellphone charger, new towels. Gave Seniors Citizen discount for my parents.

We had our honeymoon at el nido.hotel is easy to locate,clean,nice friendly staff. However i find their dining tables were few.it took few time to wait for vacancy. Rooms were clean,but bed were quite unsoft. What's best in this hotel is the location. Nice beach front

The Waterfront Hotel in El Nido is one of the best hotels you can get. The rooms are very spacious, with A/C and TV. We got a beachfront room with a huge terrace and a private Jacuzzi. Relaxing in the Jacuzzi and watching the beautiful scenery was simply stunning. The view is breath-taking! The staff was very friendly, the owner... More

Loved the view, but that was a given. Rooms are ok, but what do you expect, you a LONG ways up the coast. Its about a 6-8 van ride from Purto Princesa (Probably where you will fly into). Staff was around but ddint really know who was the owners, workers or just people hanging out! BIG NOTE. Not just this... More
