Its a nice place to stay. The rooms are big enough for 2 to 3 persons. The staff are very friendly and its facing the great helicopter island. Its a decent place to stay in since moat of your time are in tours at day and bars at night.

Stayed here for 4 nights with my friends. Cottages are basic but veeeeeery spacious. The view is amazing. I have the best view of Cadlao Island and Helicopter Island from the resort. Our only problem was Hadefe's location is quite far from the town. We had to walk for like 10mins to get to the town proper plus you have... More

Hadefe was recommended to us by our friends. We availed of the package offered by the resort which includes the island hopping activities, Puerto Princesa City Tour, and the Underground River. The place is pretty laid back, perfect for people who just wants to enjoy the beach and relax. The island hopping was the very highlight of the tour. El... More

Our 4 days stay in El Nido was a blast and HADEFE was a big part of it. Aside from cheaper accomodations compared to other hotels that we checked, our tour guide, Kuya Loloy, cracks a lot of jokes and he really briefs us about what to do and what not to do. He also served as our photographer. He... More

Basic accommodation but the sweetest part of the package besides the island tours are the accommodation staffs and the boatmen assigned to us. I'm not that fussy with my trip accommodations as long as I'll get a clean, comfy bed, and a clean bathroom. The mattress though is a bit thin but it's comfy enough to get a decent sleep... More

Hadefe is a family-managed resort that is a few mins away from the town. They offer affordable A/C bungalows to guests with compli breakfast. ROOMS: When I booked a beachfront cottage, I didn't expect anything. I just trusted my friends who recommended this place.. totally forgetting the fact that I'm a sort of particular about accommodations and that my friends... More

Hedefe was recommended to me by a colleague. True to her words, it only offers the most basic accommodation - a bed, basic toilet and electric fan/ac. Nonetheless, the staff were very accommodating specially MJ. She was so patient answering all my inquiries. I am also thankful that she gave the beachfront cottage with no additional charges. The package she... More

We directly booked with Hadefe and communicated with them via email. They were very accommodating and they adjusted the itinerary according to my wish. The cottages are very simple -- a bed, basic toilet, fan +/- aircon. I loved that it's away from the main beach where the crowd can get loud and rowdy, but if you want to go... More
