If not because of its location in El Nido, and the view of the ocean from the resort, I would just have forgotten about my stay in this "Cove Resort." To go to the town proper, one has to pay an exorbitant amount by tricycle. So, we opted to travel by van, which was also P800 for a round trip... More

Friendly personnel but the service of the resort itself is very disappointing: the breakfast has very limited choice, location is far from El Nido town. You need a private transportation or you have no choice but avail of the very expensive transportation offered by the resort (600 pesos two-way by tricycle which is not advisable during nighttime due to the...

Stayed as a large group occupying 3 beachfront lofts. I love this place! Just amazing views and away from the hustle and bustle of town. If you need to go to town it is 20 minutes away. The office staff will organise to get your laundry done at a very reasonable price. Sure there probably are nicer places to stay... More

We stayed here for 4 nights recently, in one of their 'loft' style rooms, and it was a generally lovely stay - it is slightly out of town - approx 20 mins by tuk tuk, and 200 pesos, but the quiet and uninterrupted views were lovely. The room was gorgeous, as were the communal areas, virtually private (huge) beach which... More

We stayed for 3 nights in Garden view its like a forest going down to your room with all kinds of insects that you will encounter but in fairness the room is big and clean and a roomy bathroom although some basic amenities are lacking like toothbrush and toothpaste. The view from the lobby where you eat breakfast is amazing.... More

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
