Available walk up rooms in El Nido

We arrive on Palawan on 2/15 and planned on spending a couple nights in PP before heading to El Nido on 2/18.

We weren't going to book ahead since we wanted to be flexible with our travel and maybe spend a couple days in Port Barton depending on logistics of getting there and on to El Nido. I started checking into mid-range hotels on line and haven't been able to come up with any availability other than a couple real high end places. We've never had a real problem in other countries, even if it took some looking around, but now I'm feeling a little nervous since it's such a long trip to El Nido and a place we really want to visit. Seems like this is a busy time of year there.

What are our chances of finding a room upon arrival?

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

1. Re: Available walk up rooms in El Nido

We have just got back from El Nido and didn't book anything but had a few places in mind, we walked straight into Entalula and picked up a room for 1000 pesos (their nice cottages are 1500), we stayed there for a few nights before moving to the El Nido Beach resort which was a bit more (3000) before going back to Entalula when a cottage became available.

You will have no problem finding a place, there are plenty of cottages not on the internet and a place like Entalula which is really nice doesn't even take bookings during peak season.

If all else fails you can stay on Corong Corong which is 1 beach down and has some more budget accomodation so either way you will DEFINATELY find something, nowehere we asked was full.
