Stayed for 4 nights, thought we got a great place but ended up finding out that there were cheaper hotels at the beachfront, cant talk talk much or laugh too loud coz the walls are too thin that the other rooms will hear you and staff will knock on your door and ask you to stay quiet, we regret staying...

Highly professional staff! We were greeted with a punch drink upon check-in. Room was afequate, clean. They ask what time you want breakfast and they are right on time, they even knock on your door at that time if you're not out of you room. They answered every question, helped arrange airport transfers, tours, etc., plus its close to the... More

Stayed for 4 nights and it was pleasant. Large beds and space with clean toilet although a bit smelly. Breakfast is decent at rooftop with unlimited brewed coffee;however, set meals are changed every other day. Management has been helpful with our tours and managed to give us discount on each. Overall, I might stay in this place again.

This hotel has a fantastic location in El Nido, it is just one minute from the lovely beach! I felt very safe at night walking home by myself. The owner was absolutely lovely, very kind and welcoming. It is worth staying here for his kindness and help alone!

We booked a room online last minute having decided to get the bus that day to El Nido. We got a large room with AC and nice touches like toiletries in the bathroom which was generous for the cheap price. Unfortunately they were booked up for the rest of our stay, but helped us find other accommodation and were a... More

The hotel is located at the center, next to the really busy bakery, which got tasty pastry and cookies if you're a fan. The room is nice and clean, the staff is really helpful and friendly. And good price with breakfast. So that's all you need.

The staffs were very nice and accommodating. The inn have a rooftop where you can see some views, where breakfast was also being served.... More
