I viewed a few hotels along the main beach on El Nido islands. Most were very disappointing. Firstly, it was very hard to book one with a beach view. Those with a view on the beach were rather small and dull. Our driver suggested trying hotels along Corong Corong beach and luckily we did! Corong Corong beach is only 10 minutes away from El Nido town. We viewed Islandfront Cottages and immediately loved it. The room came at 2,100 Pesos per night but it was well worth it! It was the only room with a big balcony facing the sea. And considering, we were visiting during an off-peak season, we shared the whole place only with another Japanese gentleman. The food at the restaurant is nothing fantastic but they do provide San Miguel beer the whole night. The room was very spacious and so was the bathroom. The balcony faced the beach which was deserted when I was there. The staff were friendly and helpful. They were available at night too.
Please note that El Nido has a complete blackout from 6:00am to 2:00pm so schedule showers and charging of your electronic devices in advance.
Islandfront Cottages provide bike rental services too. We rented a 4-speed bike for 700 Pesos a day (which was further discounted when we checked out. We got a day free). The ride to El Nido town was barely 10 minutes by bike. Definitely faster than with a tricycle which can be hard to come by at Corong Corong.
