I read a lot about this resort, known for being located beachfront. Some friends even stayed here once or twice. The room we got was the jessica cottage to be exact. Just a basic cottage but if you're looking for other nice beachfront lodges/resort you can walk around and have the same value for your money or even add a... More

My family and I always travel on a budget. That starts with the airfare and of course accomodation and Marina Garden Resort is definitely one of the low cost but decent place to stay at El Nido. The Best Beachfront location. The Best security, infront of a Police Station. Best Value for money.

This is my second visit to this sweet little beachside hotel and it never fails to disappoint. The rooms overlook the best strip on the beach and it's an easy amble into town or down the sand to bars, restaurants and amenities. The rooms are spotlessly clean with ceiling fans and air-conditioning. The bathrooms are small, but perfectly serviceable and... More

as the thought of being El Nido for the first time makes me forget how the accommodation would look like. not that I'm saying that it's not nice, as a matter of fact, it is. it adds to the rustic and quiet place of El Nido. It is in the beach front and we were given one nipa hut, fan... More

The place is very nice. The room was clean. It was simple but comfortable except for the power shortage we encountered when we are staying here. Fans are provided though. Overall, our stay here was great! Close and accessible to stores and church.

Had a Nice stay for 3 nights. Hotel is locaties in the town and right next to the beach. Breakfast is OK. Friendly staff. Well maintained and nice comfortable rooms (we had a Deluxe room). Is near good restaurants and shops. A/C and hot water in shore was OK. Surely a place to come back to.

I stayed here with friends for 5 days. This is a beachfront resort in the town of El Nido, but I would not suggest swimming at the beach in front of the resort. The water is clean and is beautiful, especially during sunrise, but this is also where boats dock, so swimming may not be ideal. The rooms are basic... More
