We stayed for two nights. The location is "close" to El Nido. We had a beach front room. Very large with King size bed down stairs and one upstairs. During our stay the hotel was quite full, the high noise level started already early morning. Breakfast was very limited even it was a "buffet". The pool is new but needs... More

We stayed in El Nido Cove Resort for 3 Nights on June 11-14 2015. Upon booking, i received an email from Ave saying that they have overbooked our accommodation due to error on booking.com which doesn't make sense but we were very pleased that Ave did everything she could to straighten things and get us the beach front villa.

This was the most beautiful, peaceful, and relaxing place to stay in El Nido.I stayed in the beachfront two story loft. You just open your door and you have just an amazing view of islands and sunsets. The manager Marco was super friendly and helpful. This place is about 20 minutes outside the crowded town of El Nido.Which was nice... More

We stayed at El Nido Cove Resort for three nights. We chose it because it seemed to be the only non-hostel option that seemed affordable. Pros: beautiful lobby, beautiful views. The sunsets are truly out of this world. Many of the staff are warm and readily helpful. Some of the dishes that the restaurant serves are pretty good. The location... More

The place is located 20 mns away from El Nido town. Which is better to me because you avoid the "noise and crowed" (although it is just el nido town...). Anyway this resort is elegant and in good condition meaning it is mid range style, not the hardcore backpaper style but not the high end style neither - perfectly in... More

If you are looking for some peace and quiet, this place is definitely the one to consider. The sunset view is absolutely divine and the staff are all warm and friendly. They also serve delicious food and the dining area overlooks the beach so eating is always a pleasure (especially during the sunset). They can use some improvements though on... More

Thumbs-up! Resort is far from the hustle and bustle of downtown El Nido which is the main reason why we chose this resort in the first place.. And a lot more! The room, bi-level, is very nice. For families with children, you'll spend more quality time with them - table tennis, volleyball and badminton areas! Sunset, sunset, sunset!!!

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.
