Spent three nights here with a group of friends. We rented out three rooms. The receptionists were really nice and accommodated us well even when we checked in at 3:00 AM (long ride from Puerto Princesa). The rooms were beautiful and unexpectedly spacious. One of the rooms had a malfunctioning aircon. Thankfully, when we raised this concern, this was immediately... More

I had a good time when I was there. Everything was different. Being familiar with construction I could see that a lot of effort was put into making the Big Creek look good. Spoke with the lady who works there and was told that pool is coming soon. Cable tv and flat screens. AC. power out for half day time... More

Big Creek Mansion: located where the former bus stations use to be and is under major construction. It is located on the edge of El Nido so traffic is minimal. A second and third floor is being added. Only the first floor with 7 rooms is completed at this time. Our room very spacious, modern fixtures, comfortable beds, numerous outlets,... More

My partner and I have been to Palawan before. This is my fourth trip to Palawan. We decided to do it a bit different this time. We decided to go where ever the wind blew us and do it at low prices. We arrived in El Nido with no reservations from Coron. There is now a air conditioned boat that... More
