This property is overpriced, but admittedly, it has some of the best beachfront landscapes and it's location is fabulous. Unfortunately, the service is virtually non-existant, but nothing really happened to ruin my stay, and it was overall average. You can do better to find decent accommodations in the area. Most of the places in El Nido don't advertise online or... More

We stayed in one of the family rooms and the room was very basic, but that is what we expected, and that was fine! I would bring a bug net, there were tons of mosquitos, and they can get into the rooms very easily due to the floor boards. The location is great and the cafe on the sand offers... More

We spent one night in a townside room in February 2014. The room was clean, and in great condition. AC worked well, beds were comfortable. The included breakfast was decent (nothing special though). Staff were professional and friendly. Only complaint (which was admittedly, not their fault) was that at night we could hear loud music from one of the nearby... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and we slept comfortably. We were in Wayside Cottage. We had a problem with the bathroom water pressure and they fixed it immediately. It was located right on the beach it was nice to be able to listen to the ocean from our room. The room was large and clean. We were only in... More

We booked six rooms for a party of eighteen four months before we arrived. You would think that they would prepare for a large group, but clearly, they did not. After a grueling trip from the airport via a rickety van, we cannot even freshen up because the towels they provided were damp. We handed it back to the staff... More

It's been our second time at Marina Garden and the only difference from our last stay (November 2012) was that our favorite hammock was gone! I wish they will return it as it really complements the rustic ambiance of the place. We already experienced staying at all the Cottage Rooms and we've had no problems or complaints, whatsoever. Honestly, I... More

We booked a standard room for 4 nights and was hoping we would get some view from our room but unfortunately we got the one that didn't have the view. But it was okay as we were out and about during the day anyway. Our room was neat and gets cleaned everyday but lacking ventilation. Bathroom's tiny. Breakfast was okay.... More
