I am so excited putting this review for Hadefe as I am a very satisfied and happy customer. We just had our 5-day vacation with my husband. We stayed in a very comfortable room, with. Aircon, clean beddings and most important clean restroom. We were accomodated by nice, approachable and friendly staffs. The boatman and assistant and Kuya Clin who... More

Stayed here with 3 other friends for 4 days.. Beachfront cottages with a great view of the Helicopter Island. Clean rooms with fan and ac. Some cabinets. No fridge cause there's a common pantry outside where meals are served. Some couches out front each of the gated cottages (if you want to sit outside). Worth the money; it's a good... More

We booked an El Nido trip to Mr. Hanny Enor (09209523280 and 09178496877) and he booked us in this hotel. Location is quite far from El Nido town. You need to pass by a cemetery before you get to this hotel. But it is fun when you are with your friends. Good service, clean rooms. jus perfect!

Got the opportunity to stay at Hadefe Cottages, El Nido Palawan last December 22-24, 2014. My El Nido experience was worthwhile 'cause we got the affordable place to stay. Hadefe Cottages faces the awesome views of El Nido. The Staffs were great, friendly and very approachable especially Cleng; our tour guide. He was very patient in answering our questions and...

I coordinated our Palawan tours with MJ from Hadefe. She is prompt in her replies and accurate. I have no complaints here! We did the City Tour and was shown around town and different points of interest. My favourite would be the visit to the Butterfly Garden and the traditional weaving place (sorry I can't remember the name but you... More

it was an interesting stay in El Nido. It got off to a rough start when our plane landed on time, only to have us wait over 1.5 hours near the airport at a restaurant while the bus driver stuffed as many people into the bus as possible before leaving. We were like sardines stuffed in a can for nearly... More

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
