We stay in room 5D and is about 90 steps to the top of the hill. Nice outdoor area with a view of the water. The room was basic with a fan and had a net for the bed. For a 3 star hotel in comparison with other hotels in El Nido, it was good value. It’s about a 10 minute walk

We booked four months in advance based on the photos and reviews from people previous to us. We arrived to find the place was being renovated and nobody had informed us. To make matters worse, the manager still took us to our room, which was absolutely disgusting, and nowhere

The Makulay Lodge and Villas is in a prime location, over looking the El Nido bay with the most amazing views. The outlook was second to none. Unfortunately for the room itself, it wasn't cleaned to other hotels expectations, and it was dark as less than half of the lights

We booked our stay at Makulay on a recommendation from a friend (who had a great stay there a few years ago) and were VERY disappointed with our experience, to say the least. Apparently its under new management that isn't managing it. The entire hotel was under construction

I don't think that there is aircon in each room. I don't know if it is allowed to add person in the room.

Did anyone stay at room 5E? How are the amenities?
Hi There is excellent snorkeling within the area but not from the hotel. There are plenty of dive shops and arranged trips where you can do island hoping and snorkeling. Well recommended. There is an array of restaurants within El Nido which is a pleasant 15 minute walk from the hotel. You can get around on the taxi tricycles (negotiate on fair before starting journey) or hire mopeds, a great way to explore other beaches etc. El nido is about a 5-6 hour journey from Puerto Princessa with lots of mini buses doing it. We stay at Port Barton on the way up another fantastic place to island hop from. Enjoy

No kitchens in the units for that many from what I have seen. They have a restaurant downstairs and there are plenty of all types/budget eating places in El Nido.
