Great place to stay situated in Corong Corong : better than el nido. Nice people and everything around. The owner "family" is very helpful and smiling. We had the room number 6 which is very confortable. The beach is so cloth to the hostels. You can rent scooter for 500p.

Where do I start..... For the price you pay here, you will find much better value in many other parts of El Nido. I would have much rather have paid 1000 pesos more to get something a lot nicer, or paid 1000 pesos less to get the same type of of accommodation elsewhere. Terrible Value. Nothing worked. Aircon never worked.... More

Pay attention that this hotel has policy that they may require you to make deposit to confirm booking in advance. Everything could be well if only they could accept deposit by PayPal, paying by credit card, etc. But no - they require bank transfer and only bank transfer. And what is the most amazing, they can lost your money! This... More

We enjoyed our stay at Novie's. The staff is very friendly and helpful always available for any questions. Room is clean and AC works pretty well still it can be a bit nosy. Location is good not in El Nido (5-10mn with Trycicle - 30 to 50p) but that's why it's cheaper. Good thing is that you are close to... More

We recognise that going for a budget option you have to make some allowances but I convinced my friends that paying a little more for a room with air conditioning would be well worthwhile, unfortunately I was wrong when it transpired that the air conditioning unit in room 2 doesn't actually work. The staff, whilst friendly enough didn't actually react... More

No accommodation in Palawan is perfect but Novies was perfect for us because the staff were amazing and the rooms had everything we needed. During our stay I ended up hospitalized and the hotel drove me straight there and told the hospital what was wrong with me. Everyday the staff had a smile on their face and were super helpful,...

The location of this place is fab! Just across the road from Corong Corong beach which is much quieter than El Nido beach and only $1 tricycle drive from the main town. Long story short, we ended up moving and so we saw 3 rooms altogether, all of which were a very different standard. 2 of the rooms were lovely,... More

El Nido's water and electricity is not yet adequate to support a booming tourist industry, BUT that is probably what makes this place more appealing where nature and a rural setting blend. The Novie's hotel, with their friendly staff and log quarters blends with El Nido's beautiful environment.

Travelled as a couple mid March 2016. Novie's basic fan rooms low price is hard to beat in El Nido area. It's well located on the main road at Corong Corong, and 3 minute walk from the beach. We tried another similarly priced hotel 5 minute walk from Novie's and it was not as comfortable and lacked electricity in the... More
