It looks like their business model is to make money on people's cancellations, I read some negative comments but since there weren't many choices en El Nido, I decided to book it through Airbnb. I couldn't find the place, no response from the host, and when found it there was no reservation under my name and no room that I... More

Booked the beachfront cottage in November and it was taken by others when we arrived and the owner couldn't tell us when they were leaving. Stayed one night then left. Luckily we moved to the cottages next door and they were so different. As if they wanted and were grateful for our business.

We went here, because of the recommendation in the lonely planet. When we arrived a young arrogant boy told us they had rooms with aircon and rooms with a fan available. He showed us a room and then he said that room was the only one available.... It was a room with aircon and costed 1300 pesos. We took it,... More

Normally I'm okay with facilities that are on the lower end of the luxury scale, I'm pretty happy with simple. This place should be cheaper for what they offer, I came purely to dive and island hop around el nido. I arrived and they offered me a room with a great balcony view, great. I get in my room and...

The staff were nice here and the location is right on the beach. We were lucky and got a beach facing room with porch. The room was tiny and the bathroom pretty basic. Breakfast was included but wasn't that nice. Not worth the price so opt elsewhere and don't stay in El Nido if you want quiet - head to... More

Location is better than the others. All the things you needed are within the area. The beach front is of great view which you can immediately appreciate the beauty of El Nido. The staff are accommodating to your needs.

The room we stayed in was quite large with good AC. the place is right on the beach so that was awesome. Hotel is being added to so work men around. We got a hot breakfast served right on the deck outside our room. It was okay. Staff was friendly enough but the wifi was only in reception area and... More

We stayed at Tandikan for 3 weeks over Christmas and new year. The rooms are basic but still good value for El Nido, which has doubled prices since last year. The location is just a bit in the north of down directly near the beach. You can walk to restaurants along the beach. Rooms are basic, but alright. Bath rooms... More

We stayed in one of the rooms that wasn't ocean facing for 6 nights. First few nights ok, but then as minimal air flow through the room, we found it constantly felt damp, the bathroom smelt, no fly screens on the windows so Mosquitos were a bit of a problem. We had a fan room only and with limited electricity(El... More

Found Tandikan on arrival at El NIdo. We had one of the sea view rooms with a large balcony and an amazing view of the bay. The room was large with two double beds. Unfortunately this is where the good points end. The bathroom was tiny and basic, cold shower none flush toilet, which is fine. But it was filthy.... More
