We stayed here to have an extra couple nights in El Nido before heading out to one of the fancier El Nido Resorts properties, which share the same ownership group. There have been a lot of good and honest reviews of El Nido Cove so far, but here's why I call it a "mixed bag": Location - Beautiful views of... More

Nice place for people looking for a quiet location. Nice bar for having a beer and enjoying the sunset. Resonable pricing; food ok but not to much variation.Very friendly staff. Close to the AirPort. No TV in the room but clean and Nice rooms. For couples: Best rooms are in the garden.

If you would like to have a gorgeous and romantic vacation, I recommend you to stay at El Nido Resorts, even if they are much expensive. I rate this resort not so bad, but still not satisfactory for the price which is still much higher than the standard in El Nido. I chose beach front room of this hotel as... More

Nothing to rave about this hotel. Very quiet, isolated location, away from everything, no nightlife, food very average and not many choices, rooms big, convenient for families, but a bit outdated, beach not worth mentioning and a pool was very dirty. Very slow service & internet. An OK value for money, but would choose to stay elsewhere if we return... More

The resort is quiet and isolated, quite a distance away from town and requires a long ride to Nacpan beach. The view was great, especially at their cafe, so having breakfast there was very enjoyable. Water pressure and natural lighting of the bathroom made a plus point for the stay. We left the resort at 5.30am for the airport, the... More

The place is what the doctor ordered. From the start I come to know that this place is bought by the Ayala Group over a year ago, that runs the famous El Nido Resorts, I know that I can be assured of it Tranquility and service par excellence. I am totally aware that El Nido Cove Resort is 4 kms... More

Firstly, I have to agree with other reviews that this is a tranquil resort in a beautiful, deserted bay. The resort looks good on the surface. A sunset beer at the bar is a wonderful way to end a day. But... There were far too many things missing to make this resort amazing. No TV, no fridge, no safe in... More
