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

Hotel in the first beach line. Wife slow but still works. It is important that you can pay by credit card. Air conditioned. Staff very friendly. Hotel in the town centre. Rooms are small but clean. Open desk for 24 hours. There is a great view at the roof.

The room was clean in appearance, the staff was really friendly, the hot shower worked well and the tv worked too. Based on those things I would say great for the price. But there were A LOT of mosquitoes that got in our rooms. We killed so many, but more would come in while we slept. We also think they... More

The hotel is small, with only about ten rooms in total. The rooms were basic but adequate -- good beds, TV and air-con. The bathroom was quite small though. There's a balcony in every floor from where you can see the view of the sea. There's also the top floor if you'd rather see the limestone cliff. This is a... More

Only stayed there for one night but really liked it especially after 5 days on a boat after our Tao trip! Had nice comfortable bed, hot shower, was in the centre of el nido and with a really great view of the bay. Staff were really friendly and helpful. We booked a day trip to the lagoons with their help... More
