le poulichet a, Owner at El Nido Overlooking, responded to this review

Thanks for this review. I just want to react about one point. Filipinos have the same treatment as the foreign guests. A lot of the previous reviews are from local tourists. The El Nido Overlooking is owned by Pinoys. More

One of the reasons why I left my heart in El Nido. The place will leave you dumbfounded and you will have the best view of the Bacuit Bay. Our villa was spotless and everything I need was at the tip of my finger. The staff were so honest. They even called my phone to inform me that I left... More

Two nights were spent at El Nido Overlooking and it was THE PERFECT way to relax and unwind and recover our sea legs! We stayed in the Pool Villa. It was incredible.

Everything about our stay at El Nido Overlooking was just great ! From the very first contact by mail, getting clear and prompt responses, to the goodbye on our departure day... It is one of these rare places where you very quickly feel at home, where comfort is an evidence and where service comes with a genuine smile ! Also,... More

We had the pool villa and it has a very nice layout of the room esp the shower/jacuzzi. It has a view of the bacuit bay, close to the pool and we could access wifi from our room. The filipino breakfast i love! Best ever tocino and tasty breads with brewed coffee. a friendly owner arnaud..will definitely go back here!

We stayed a week at Overlooking and absolutely loved it. The view, the service, tranquility, and accessibility to town were all so great. Arnaud was so accommodating and helpful with our special requests, and he gave us sound advice and assistance. We stayed in the Privacy Villa, and were very pleased. If the wifi reached the room, that would make... More

Spectacular! I have never stayed somewhere with such incredible VIEWS! The style, service and positioning of El Nido Overlooking's four apartments (ranging from the "basic" cottage - which is AMAZING... to the two bedroom villa with private pool) are all OUTSTANDING. Pools and gardens are tended to daily, the breakfasts are basic & tasty & served to your room at... More

5 words...blood on the bed sheets. I'm not a fussy traveler. I chose this place because I was coming off 5 nights of island hopping and camping and also because it was rated number 1 but it was genuinely a bug infested swamp and even though I requested my bed sheets to be refitted each day they had spots of...

Beautifully designed villas with cooking facilities, great views and peaceful surroundings. But this is not a hotel… more of a high-end B&B. There is no bar, no restaurant and service is very limited. If you’re interested in catering for yourself, cooking your own meals and relaxing in solitude… this place is perfect!

I stayed here in March 2014 and had a truly wonderful experience. I was travelling with my partner and another couple, so we hired the 'Pool Villa' and 'The Cottage', both of which were beautiful and very comfortable (excellent showers and beds!). The whole place is stunning with amazing views and scenery. Arnaud, Valerie and the staff were all unbelievably... More
