The resort is in a very beautiful location with stunning view. They have a beautiful beach in front which is convenient and the pool is gorgeous during sunsets. This is 20 minutes away from the town and away from the hustle and bustle. Checked in @ Waterfront Loft, the room is big and comfortable. Customer service is spot on, they... More

The resort has a beautiful beach in front of the resorts. Sadly, when we visited there was infestation of sand mites/fleas so what was a lovely vacation in the most beautiful island of Palawan turned into a very itchy one.

This place is so beautiful. The pool is great and has a shower beside it. The beach is wonderful because you can walk it forever, and to the left of the resort is a beautiful white sand beach with excellent swimming. The rooms are excellent, and we had an amazing housekeeper named Johnny. He was very attentive and friendly. Always... More

secluded: about 20 minutes away from town proper. which could get annoying at times. if you're looking for nightlife this is not the place to go. this is for relaxation and rest. the staff was friendly, and I don't think they ever said anything except an immediate yes to anything I asked.

Stayed here from Friday-Monday and they gave us a warm welcome and good service. The reception headed by Roan and so as the rest of the staff was very polite, helpful, knowledgeable and professional. The rooms were bright, clean and well maintained. The property could use extra bug spray/machine to help eliminate the bugs since it's mosquito season. No qualms... More

I came to el nido cove during a tour of the Philippines. The resort itself is very beautify and the grounds are well kept. Being just outside el nido proper the resort feels very remote without being to far away from anything. The room was well furnished and the bed was quite comfortable. The food was very delicious and the... More

El nido cove resort is a great hotel with some downsides. Most importantly, it's located 10km from town (20min tricycle 200peso). The restaurant service is very slow. Some people seem to pre order their food and only go to their table when the food gets served, while we are sitting there for more than an hour. Very annoying! It's weird... More

Room given to us was not well kept in terms of the water leaking from the airconditoner unit that leaked into the doorway which created water pool on the entrance and as well as it leaked through the towel rack in the bathroom area. The view from the front balcony was breathtaking but I was dismayed to see that the... More

This resort is a little way outside of El Nido town but if you are looking for a beautiful beach, a magnificent view and quiet relaxation then this is the place for you! The rooms are nice and the grounds are well looked after. The staff are very friendly and accommodating. The food isn't magnificent, but its not bad either.... More
