I went for a day to el Nido cabins since it was right next to playa chiquita, a very cute beach. Hotel has no access to the beach but has a great nature inside. Cabins are big, they have kitchen and free parking. I found that it was not very clean and also the owners have not been investing very... More

A great tropical escape in playa chiqiuta run by nice Italian owner. We were looking for a large room to accommodate family of 5, near the beautiful beach of Punta Uva with the option of a swimming pool. Apart from a slight hot water problem (which was partly fixed on day 2) the place is very nice. Huge bonus was... More

I had posted a review about how bad the room condition was. The owner probably removed the post. Through booking.com and email contact with Paolo, i got some money back based on some 115$ per night rate. I don't have time to rewrite my bad experience. In summary, if el nido wants to be in business, they better fix what... More

I have been there with my family and it was incredible! Our bungalow was without A/C but we never needed it. The breakfast was very good, and the service was perfect. The garden was something very special... I think that I saw more tropical plants there than in all the places that we visited in the country. They grow organic... More

Communication was good from the beginning. Located in Playa Chiquita it's a 300m walk from the beach and 2km from Punta Uva, you can ride a bike, take a taxi or walk. It's less than $4 cab drive from downtown, there's an exc Minimarket 50m away. Host was nice and helpful, place is clean, beds are comfty and big and... More

We stayed two nights and really enjoyed the hospitality. Rooms were open and clean. Nice restaurants nearby. What's not to love? Near by its a market where you can save some cash buying fresh fruts and vegitables. Managers were very friendly.

I really enjoyed staying at these cabins. They are large and airy and fit my family of 5 comfortably. The cabins are separated and with the lush gardens you feel as if you have your own little piece of paradise. The manager is friendly and kind and so very helpful. He gave us great advice on where to go and... More

Ordered today's special that was Pasta Carbonara, but the pasta came very hard and was not cooked properly, which was weird because it took almost 35 min before it arrived after ordering it. The owner was nice, though and I could send it back and order a pizza instead. I then ordered the pizza margarita, that came after 5 min...... More
