My husband and I stayed here for a week and enjoyed the place very much. Naoko and her staff makes our stay very special. We are planning to return and stay there for a longer time. Love the view of Cadlao Island from our breakfast table and those beautiful birds flying and singing nearby. Good distance away from the busy... More

We recently stayed here and could not have picked a better place. The room was clean, had AC, great food, and wonderful view. However, the staff and owner were absolutely the best part of the stay. Unbelievably friendly and always willing to help in whatever way possible. You cannot beat the free breakfast and free kayaking in such a wonderful... More

Myself and two girlfriends stayed here and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The staff and owner provide excellent hospitality and are very kind and friendly. They offer tricycle pickup and drop off into town, although it is only a 15min walk. The breakfast was delicious every morning and overlooks a beautiful view of the bay. The grounds are well manicured and clean.... More

This place is a short walk away from the town, the tricycle will drop you to the end of the road and then you will have to walk for about 10minutes. Make sure you bring a torch as there aren't any lights along the path and it is pitch black at night time. The owner Naoko is so warm and... More

Spent 5 nights in this awesome place, and it was beyond what we were expecting. Not easy to contact by phone or email, so we went walking, it is I think the last hotel of the Caalan beach. 15 - 20 min walk from city. We selected a beautiful cottage, the closest one to the beach, with 2 double beds,... More

First, let me be very clear - there are NO ATMs at El Nido as of Feb 2015, so come with cash to pay for your tours, rooms and meals. Apparently the service station in town will give an advance on your credit card but only during one hour of the day and the line-up is very long. SO COME... More

What makes this place special is Naoko, the owner. Whatever you need, she will help you and listen to your concerns. One's there was not much food left at the restaurant because of the deliveries from Puerto Princesa or something, and to compensate Naoko gave us chocolate cake. The food at the place is good, so is the breakfast which... More
