I am trying to find a great place to stay in El Nido, but not really having any luck as there are so many options and I am sadly quite picky. I like a boutique lodge that is stylish and clean, but not at all 5 star. We would love to be at the beach, but it's not essential. We are looking for something that has a lovely warm ambience, authentic feel, beautiful rooms, a great lounge area and not extremely overpriced. We would prefer in the range of $50 - $150 per night for the lodge if possible. It would be great to be close enough to walk to our dive sites, but not in the middle of chaos with lots of people wandering past every minute.
Given that very hectic brief, does anyone have a brilliant suggestion or list of ideas for me???
