We spent 6 days at El Nido Cabinas, and EVERYTHING was wonderful. The hosts, Vitoria, Paolo and Chavo, were all very welcoming and fun. The cabins are spacious, very welcoming and clean. The cabinas are located within the jungle 100 meteres from the beach. There are good restaurants and a super market in walking distance. It was a great week... More

This resort is awesome. If you are looking to stay in this area I wouldn't stay anywhere else. The pictures don't do it justice. The family running it is so gracious. Pablo and Victoria are very accommodating. Super people. Maybe they will adopt us so we can stay here.........lol Breakfast is plentiful and fresh every morning which is included. Pool... More

This is not the average cabinas of the Carribean! Well built, solid and tastefully furnished, they're located in a beautiful and well kept garden. The saltwater pool is gorgeous and was the place our five year old daughter learned to swim and dive. The best part of El Nido though, is the lovely family running it. Victoria, Paulo and Nina,...

We were two couples. Someone refered that place to us because we were let down by the person from the hotel ''Casa Robinson bungalow on the beach'' who tried to rent us a place that wasnt functional. But everything happens for a reason and we are glad we found El Nido! The owners are an italian couple who take real... More

We went there in july 2013 and we really love this place. It was clean, nice and you feel in the jungle but no bug. There is a nice pool and this place is very safe.The owner is very sympatic. I will come back for sure to this place.

We spent 2 weeks at El Nido near Playa Chiquita in April. Paolo, Vittoria and Nina were the best hosts you could possibly ask for. They were there to take care of us and addressed anything that needed attention immediately. We felt well taken care of. We arrived after Easter Week and the entire coast had slowed downed considerably and... More

Just returned from 4 days at El Nido Cabinas. I highly recommend staying here. The hosts are wonderful and strive to make your vacation as relaxing as possible. Breakfast is included and was always delicious! You are surrounded by the jungle so keep your eyes open for monkeys, sloths, butterflies, etc. The beauty of the beaches is beyond words! I... More
