I am a travel enthusiast and so is my family. Overall, I can say that this was the worst place we've ever stayed in! The room photos are very much dissimilar when you see them in person. The photo I have attached here is just one of the things we dislike about Nido Bay Inn. Employees: The manager, "Shiela", was... More

We had a room on 2d floor near the balcony.Conditioner and tv was working fine. We didnt have any problems with shower and wifi was working all the time free of charge which is super good. The...

You'll be welcomed with smiles and polite people upon arrival. Great view and if you're planning to go on rock climbing to Taraw cliff, it's the nearest place to stay in. It's just I think 5 mins walk from the hotel. They could also refer you to a tour guide. Another good thing is, Art Cafe is just few steps... More

After a disappointing stay at another 'hotel' that we got through a package tour, we walked up and down the streets of El Nido looking at rooms and both felt incredibly happy to find Nido Bay Inn. I just read the other negative reviews and am somewhat confused and perhaps feeling lucky because we had a great experience in this... More

We stayed here April 17-19, 2014. Upon arriving at the inn, the receptionist ask for our remaining balance up front without even giving us a few minutes to rest nor sit on their couch. Very unprofessional. After paying the balance, we haven't been briefed nor was given the information of our scheduled tour the next day. No initiative. We did... More

I was very disapointted of this hotel. Staff didnt bother do their duties, they didnt even clean up room! Wifi and shower didnt work, breakfast was poor. I payed way too much for this kind of accomodation and service!

There's something seriously wrong in this hotel. Only good thing is location. I think nothing works properly there. It all starts when we check in, it was very very slow. It's dirty because they never clean, we were three nights there and we need to ask cleaning on a last day. Theres lots of ants and other bugs. Hotel is... More

We arrived in El Nido without accommodation, which was our first mistake. The second mistake was agreeing to stay in Nido Bay Inn for a night. We were shown room B, which is room next to reception. It’s tiny, smelled heavily of lemon cleaner, and was incredibly humid and musty, and we paid 1,300 pesos for a fan. Initially, it... More
