first we stayed in an other hotel and one night before our check-in we went to the hotel to ask if we could bring our luggage there in the morning of the next day so we could do a day trip. we had booked directly at the hotel (via email) three months before our arrival and the receptionist didn't know...

Location is fine. Away from big crowds. On the beach where all the boats leave. They run their own boat when enough people sign up for one of the four tours. Breakfast is a la carte and fine. Our room was not facing the beach. Tiny but clean, towels provided. Good hotel in El Nido. Everywhere else it would be...

As with most budget hotels in El Nido you dont get alot for your money but what you get here is better then some of the other we stayed at so can recommend it. 2000 pesos per night for a good sized room with air con. Good location and included breakfast. The reason you make the journey to El nido...

The view was very nice from our balcony, the location was really good as it was very near to the restaurants and bars. However, the staff was not so helpful. They were grumpy at first when we arrived and look so clueless about our reservation. I booked the room from the old building with beach front view. The hot water...

Nothing spectacular except for beachfront location. Staff was nice. Accommodations were average. Breakfast next door. Glad we decided to spend Christmas Eve in Puerto Princesa where there would be better options.

Rosanna's Pension is located perfectly in the town where you can walk within minutes of everything that are offered in the town - restaurants, tours, bars, etc. The room were we stayed was in the ground floor, in the new building. It was clean, safe and adequate for our stay. There was a hot water in the shower and there's...

We spent two nights. Room was clean, hot water shower was pretty good for the standard in backpacker guesthouses in the area. Right on the main street, short walk to pretty much everywhere in El Nido town. Prices were average from what we've seen. We stayed at the old building, which didn't have the beach views. We had a big...

Service was great, especially for setting up anything we needed. Breakfast was served on our beachfront balcony which was nice. Bathroom could use a divider between shower and toilet. Toilet just gets wet. Bed wasn't the most comfortable, but we slept good because of long days of touring. As everyone else mentions, the internet only works in the lobby and...

Before booking with them, I've read a lot of good reviews about this establishment. I know this is a pension house so I shouldn't expect a lot. The staffs are all okay, they're nice but I am not quite sure if that was a reaction that I deserve when I told them that there was a mice in our room....

After getting the third degree from the receptionist we finally got the room we had booked months before. Some reason they wanted to check and then back checked our reservations. With our name already right there. Very poor and slow wifi. Otherwise after that the time there was fine and the staff did a good job with everything. nice walks...
