“Right in the middle of everything.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2012

This place is right in front of the beach and is in the middle of everything. Compare to other inns in the town, I would say that this place is the best. It is new and it has a homey feel. The owners personally assist to the guests' needs and arranges the tours. The staffs are very accommodating-- they even waited for our late check-in at 2 in the morning.
El Nido, The Last Frontier, is a must-see place. And if you happen to go here, you better check-in at Entalula.

Room Tip: We requested for a room with the nicest view of the beach and they definitely provided it for us.

I think the price was a bit high but it was a very nice place and wifi worked most of the time and they had a backup if one was not working so well. Good breakfast brought to your room each morning - different each day - that was a nice touch. I asked for a discount on the price and was given a break as I was a solo traveller - this made it a much better value. Staff were friendly, nice balcony with sea view, can hear the waves rolling in. Bed is comfy. Good location. Noise does carry from room to room - seems to be the way in many of the places here though.

the owner of this guest house has obviously spent a lot of time and money making this feel like its a comfortable place to stay and it is, but what is not obvious is that power is available only from 2 pm to 6 am so all the fancy trimmings mean nothing when the Entalula does not run its own generator for you so at least you could get fan or AC or hot water in the morning after 6 am when you need it and that's what your paying for right ?. i moved out next day to a place half the cost with twice the size of room. Entalula was looked after well with a lot of staff on hand to help you with any thing you needed, i had no problems there. i just thought it was not worth the extra money than another cheaper place. so i can only rate it a 3. if the generator was on in the morning, it would have been a big 5 but sadly not.

Room Tip: i do not have a tip

the room was a little cramp for 3 of us. but i love its location. the breakfast and the view! =D

located in the middle of the main street. it was walking distance to the eateries. the chilling areas and easy to roam around in the streets. pickup for our island tours were simply in the backyard in the mornings. how convenient is that!

breakfast is served at the time you requested at your balcony daily. =) a little touch of home..

the view of the sunset and stars was incredible. imagine drinking with a bunch of close friends under the stars.. =)

simply value for money and will be here again as long as i get a chance!

I can find very few complaints about the Entalula and I'm a fairly critical traveler! The location is perfect as the hotel is situated right on the beach and close to everything. The rooms are a bit cramped but the bathroom is nice, the bed is comfortable, and the AC works well. The WiFi is a nice amenity when you're hanging out at night on your balcony. Breakfast is hearty, changes daily, and is served on your balcony at the time you indicate (and they serve it right on time so you can go catch your island tours, shuttle, or just get to the beach!).

The staff is awesome! They were attentive to our inquiries and reservation request via email. They were responsive when we had questions about traveling in and around Palawan and needed feedback to plan our itinerary. They booked our shuttles and helped us with island tours.

Only a few criticisms... the batteries in the safe were dead and there was a small leak in the bathroom, but neither impacted our stay and when I informed Emelia (the owner) she was aware of the issues, was apologetic, and assured me that those small issues would be addressed when the hotel closed for renovations in Sept'12.

We would stay there again in a heartbeat. I think you'd be hard pressed to find a better value in El Nido in a location like this!

I had an enjoyable stay at La Entalula. Everyone was very friendly and helpful during my stay, and the breakfast every morning was nice! The view is very nice as well! The showers are sufficient enough to get the job done. It would have made my planning a little easier though, if more establishments accepted Visa or PayPal. I plan on returning for my next R&R. : )

Decent little wooden chalets - clean, mosquito nets, nice little verandas etc. The bathrooms aren't too good though - very little water pressure making showering difficult. I ended up just tipping a bucket of water over myself instead. But for the price you can't complain. The family running the establishment are friendly and welcoming - they bring breakfast to your chalet every morning and are always on hand to help you out or answer any questions. All in all - if you're on a smallish budget you can't really go wrong here. Great location, comfy enough beds and lovely owners.
