The resort is located a 15 minutes' drive ftom El Nido town. But who cares? The place is so enchanting you cannot see a reason to go to the not so enchanting town. The view from the resort is spectacular. The narrow seashore stretch bordering the site is nice for a pleasant and lazy stroll. The rooms are apacious and... More

The resort is 30 minute drive from El Nido town which I personally like. The staff are very nice and helpful. Breakfast is included in the price which is also very good. Very picturesque especially our room was facing the beachfront and sunset was just lovely. Of course there are always room for improvements such as the road leading to... More

This is probably the best hotel in El Nido that doesn't cost an arm and a leg to stay in and is still part of the main island. It is a bit far from the main town, around 20 minutes by tricycle, but the place is beautiful. We got the beach front lofts and we are lulled to sleep by... More

The resort is a bit secluded, a 20-30 minute trike ride away from the town proper but it is well worth it! The staff is very friendly and the rooms are very cozy. The hotel itself doesn't have a lot of rooms so you get a feeling of exclusivity. Don't look for a TV though because there are no TVs... More

Celebrated Dad's 85th here with entire family of 34 pax. After a seamless travel arrangement with ITI, landing directly from Manila to El Nido, we were greeted not just by the most courteous staff, but by the widest, most beautiful unhindered panoramic view of the glorious blue sea with distant mountains in the background.

I have always dreamed of going to El Nido and luckily my boyfriend got us a 2 nights stay at El Nido Cove. We always preferred the more quiet hotels/resorts -- away from the party scene, and so the resort was perfect for us. I have timed our travels to town and they were about 20 mins on the average....

Overall a hotel that will meet your expectations for quality and amenities with a great view. I wish it was closer than 30 minutes from the town as this means its more ideal if you want to spend your vacation relaxing at the resort. good service good view nice rooms WIFI in public areas (none in rooms) not ideal location,...
