If compared to other places, the price of the resort is expensive however, in El Nido expect everything to be twice or thrice more than the actual price. As other reviewers said, the location is good. One can just stay on their hammock and watch people over the beach. It is also very accessible for night life, if one is... More

We booked our room 2 months in advance (Room 8 was the only available left) for 4 nights. Booking was quite straight forward. Our room got a couple of double beds. Stones throw away to the beach in front. Staff are all friendly, typical Filipino hospitality. Near every restaurant and Bars. They got a mini restaurant and Bar which offers... More

We stayed at this hotel for 5 nights and we had a pleasant stay. I booked directly with the hotel and sent it a one night deposit via PayPal without an issue. In order to get a room facing the beach which I highly recommend I booked about six months in advance and got the Deluxe Room #2. I strongly... More

Had a great stay at the Marina Garden. It's right on the beach and is centrally located. The breakfast was good and the beach bar is open all day. It's a great place to chill out and enjoy the amazing views.

Our group of 11 pax had a pleasant stay here. Employees are accommodating. Glad they have recently started to accept credit card payments. Place is near many eating places and small shops. If you truly want to enjoy Palawan, choose to spend your money on the island or inland tours rather than on super expensive accommodations.

The rooms were clean, the location is good and there is actually anything particular we could complain about but still for us was very average hotel for above average price. We wouldn't mind that the breakfasts weren't too good compering the other breakfast we had in Philippines or that we didn't have warm water or the wi/fi was very slow.... More

Staying here isn't too bad as you're in the middle of everything for walking and nightlife and days out etc... The aircon works but the shower is terrible - even in the rooms with hot showers we only got one once! Breakfast isn't all that bad with a general eggs and meat combo but the coffee served was the powdered... More
