Positive things about Lugadia: cottages by the beach, good vibe in the hostel, the owner is super sympa, the price is not bad Not as positive things about Lugadia: as it's build in the nature there is many different little animals, like spiders or scorpions. If you don't like this kind of animal life, better choose a place in the...

Stayed in a dorm room in one of the cottages and can absolutely recommend it. No bunk bed (my bed even had a mosquito net), price is ok if you book for multiple nights, located right at the beach and the staff is available for questions. I loved the free book shelf with books in multiple languages that I took...

We rented 2 beachfront cottages and we had a nice mosquito net, though had tape on it, but cannot say the same to the other cottage as my in-laws were bitten alive by mosquitos as they said the net have holes on it. The management should have at least offer tape or apologize to them but nothing has been said....

We stayed here one night and that was more than enough. We knew this was a budget hotel but the staff were not helpful and basically non-existence while there. Our toilet didn't work (gross), no toilet paper, and the the place was dirty. To cap it off, a private resident above the hotel blasted his radio station all evening. The...

sorry but you already knew that we try to find a way to turn off the radio of one of our guest. and it is not until the morning that time it is just only 10pm when we turn off the radio. maybe theres a reason why you didn't reserve any smile from our staff. because you know why? YOU...

Cabin was very clean and comfortable, the hammocks were lovely and the location was perfect for me. It is a bit far out from El Nido town, but close enough. There is a small shop with snacks, water and beers and a restaurant next door. Wifi was much better than expected, Skype worked perfect. View is to die for.. The...

I really loved this place. I've been in El Nido so many times, but all I can say is this is the happiest place to stay, If you are into both forest and beach lover, this resort is for you, very relaxing, a perfect escape from the busy Manila. The owners are friendly and very accommodating. They can even prepare...

We had a hut in the back row - it's not recommendable at all. For the price we paid you can get better huts in Gardenview or other places around. The beachfront huts are somewhat better. For a one night stay before you go on a cruise, it's ok but overall I would not recommend this place.

We stayed there before going on an expedition with Nativ' and we really enjoyed our time there. The family who owns that place is really friendly they always try to help you. We were happy to stay far from El nido which much more noisy. The price si good for the bungalow that you het very close from the sea.

We stayed here for a week and overall it was a very pleasant stay - especially for the price. We had 2 beach front cottages for 7 nights and I think we paid about 1300 peso per place (about $30US). This was very cheap for the area and I don't know if you would be able to find too much...

“There are airconditioned rooms, but there's no real point choosing these. They seem to be behind the beach-facing ones, and the fan is good enough with the sea breeze.”
