El Nido is awesome. Our cabin was great- Big comfy bed(s), big clean kitchen, a nice porch, and total privacy and serenity. It was amazing hearing the rain and jungle sounds every night, and to swim in the pool on the sunny days. It's just beautiful. And breakfast every morning? I felt spoiled. The dogs and two cats that hung... More

If you want a great little place with a jungle feel, this is it! Paolo and Vittoria are very gracious hosts and attentive to anything you may need. Grounds were very nice and up kept to a natural and pleasant jungle setting. Yes there were howler monkeys often making noise above, toucans and other animal life around and Paolo even... More

I wish I could give this one a better review. 3.5 stars but I am feeling charitable so bumping up 1/2 a star because of the service rather than down. First of all, the hotel grounds are very nice. Lovely pool area which the host is always quick to clean. However, the grounds/area is noisy. That'll be the bugs/howler monkeys/lizards/rain.... More

I went back to El Nido three years after my fist visit and found it even better. Now the owners also run a pizzeria on the premises, serving the best pizza in all of Puerto, probably the best in all of CR, made following the original Neapolitan recipe, in a wood fired oven. The hotel itself is amazing, a few... More

Thank you so much to Vittoria and Paolo (and Nina!)! We had the pleasure of staying at El Nido for the last 4 nights of our 22 day trip of traveling around Costa Rica and it was an incredible way to end an amazing holiday. The cabins were comfortable and clean and well maintained. The grounds were beautiful and very... More

I Love this place! You are greeted by the beautiful gardens, sweet hosts and friendly dogs. There are 4 cabins found in the vibrant garden. They have a nice amount of space between them for privacy. Inside the cabins, you find an inviting clean space. A comfortable bed, a kitchenette filled with all the necessities and a nice amount of... More

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
