We stayed at Villa Dali for 5 nights at the end of our trip to the Philippines.The acc in El Nido is expensive generally and to be honest we were a little worried if we would be happy with our choice. We paid £400 for our stay inc breakfast. We had no reason to be concerned. Villa Dali is a tranquil little hideaway surrounded by a lovely little garden. We were pleased to find that since we booked they have made several improvements, such as decking around the pool area and the addition of some lovely sun loungers. We stayed in the Villa Dali room which I believe is the biggest room, all on one level. The room itself was extremely spacious but quite dark(not really an issue as we only really slept there). The shower is very powerful however it never seemed to get properly hot,it was more warm than hot. Villa Dali also has some newer rooms which have fantastic roof terraces which you share with the room next door, these have a space to eat breakfast as well has rocking chairs and hammocks, making it a great place to chill out(next time I would try these rooms). The property is spotlessly clean and the complimentary breakfast brought to your room at your chosen time is a nice touch. A kettle and fridge are provide for you during your stay, along with tea, coffee and drinking water. Villa Dali has no bar or restaurant so if you are wanting to be waited on this probably isn’t the place for you, there are plenty of nice bars and restaurants nearby. If you are looking for a base to explore El nido this is definetly a great choice. You can pick up a tuk tuk from the main road to town for around 100peso.It’s worth mentioning that there is a hotel being built next door which generates quite a bit of noise, but El Nido is rapidly developing and I think you will struggle to find somewhere that doesn’t generate some noise unless you stay somewhere quite remote. Big mention to the lovely staff at Villa Dali, they are friendly, polite and will do anything they can to help. We would defiantly stay here again.

We stay at Villa Dali terrasse suite for 4 nights which turned out to be a horrible choose for the following reasons:
- no real cover on the bed, only a simple sheet
- we had to reuse the same poor quality dirty tower for 3 days, despite we asked to change them
- one dress missing after laundry (although they brought it back after I asked)
- no water at 7.30am on our last day, it came back at 7.45 but was yellow for unknown reason
- the hotel doesn’t have any bar or restaurant or common seating area
- impossible to sleep due to the noise from animals
- the female hotel manager was very rude and unfriendly
- area under construction, impossible to enjoy the beach or relax

£100 per night is definitely overpriced for such a hotel with horrible service and no comfort in El Nido.

What a lovely hotel with very friendly staff everyone is super nice and friendly. Our room was lovely really cool and the grounds around the hotel are beautiful! We had a really cool rooftop chill out area on top of our room where they serve your breakfast it’s worth having saves you walking somewhere! We hired a bike from our hotel a couple of times and that was helpful and a great way to get about! The pool looks lovely sadly we didn’t get chance to use it during our stay !

It's not very easy to find. The tricycle drivers would scratch their head every time we mention this resort. We were greeted by Manu that evening, who took our breakfast orders and gave us a glass bottle of distilled water. I really appreciated how this hotel was being mindful of using less plastic. There were no other guests during the night we checked in, so I enjoyed the privacy very much. The breakfast area was open, and we were given a friendly reminder to take our breakfast promptly, or else the cats that hang around the hotel area would get to it first! The Filipino breakfast was of good quality - the fruits were fresh and I enjoyed the coffee. The only things that would have made our stay better is if the pool was available for use and if the water pressure would have been improved.

We were so very excited about visiting Palawan and El Nido for 6 nights to stay in this rustic, authentic looking hotel. However due to typhoon mankut(which hit the morning we were due to arrive in Manila) we could not fly into Manila as our flight were canceled and could not reach our destination in Palawan. We were hoping for a refund as we couldn’t reach el nido safely. We would have also been happy with a partial refund or a credit or change the dates for later in the year when we would return. However the hotel would not budge on their cancelation policy, nor did they even offer an alternative solution for us. We tried calling and sent so many emails on the days leading up, however we were met with delayed, generic un compassionate response. Having worked in the hospitality for 10 years I have never experienced such customer service like this. Very disappointing. We have lost 6 nights accomodation
