Stunning Republic Beach Resort
Ranked #16 of 126 Specialty Lodging in El Nido
Reviewed December 23, 2012

My girlfriend and I were at Stunning vistas for 4 nights... We got the room nearest the road and it was a little bit noisy, but we are use to that, so it was not a problem.
The aircon did what it should, but it was not the most quiet one.

Besides that the room was just fine, with television, wifi and an average bed.

The staff was helpful and the food was okay.

The location is perfect and very beautiful, that's is worth the money and makes the place a value for your money + they have 24 hours power.

I will recommend the place, but you can find cheaper places if you want.

Stayed: December 2012, traveled as a couple

This place is just perfect. The owners are nice and helpful, the rooms are nice and clean, and the location is just wonderful.

It's a bit outside of El Nido itself though, so you always have to take a (5 to 10 minutes drive) trycicle to town. No problem at all though! They go by often and if not, they'll arrange one for you. Costs 15 pesos p.p. per ride. So that's nothing.

Also, beware of the brown-out that goes in the whole of El Nido. In Stunning Vistas they have a generator, but since they're eco oriented they only switch it on if necessary. Of course you can ask for it though.

When we were there, the satellite tv had stopped working on day 2. Had nothing to do with Stunning Vistas though, just with the fact that you're in a remote area.

I can highly recommend Stunning Vistas if you want a quiet place, with nice views, basically a private beach (not really but since it's so quiet actually it seems to be) and still close enough to El Nido itself.

I stayed with a bunch of friends for a couple of days and the hotel is right on the beach with a stunning view indeed. The place is amazing, very reasonable prices and the owner and stuff are very helpful. Highly recommended ;)

The hotel is located right on the beach. I stayed here for two nights. I have nothing but good things to say about this hotel. The staff was very helpful and informative. The owner Eden even assisted in making sure my last luggage. Let me state the luggage was lost at no fault of the hotel but they still went or of there way to help. The complex is a very good size. Not to large and not to small. The rooms were also a good size. It has a bed, a small couch, a desk, a fridge and a tv. The bathroom was not to small just right. This place had the best sunset in the world. A must see.

Hi eden,

El nido is great. Much better than alona beach in bohol.
People are very friendly in el nido and the restaurants are good. Alona Beach in bohol is a very touristic place, so when we come back to the phillipines we definitely choose for el nido.
Good to hear that there are almost loungechairs :)
Our flight with iti was easy to book from el nido to manilla, but from manilla to el nido was a little bit hard, because it was only possible to book it 5 days in advance.

We've been here last November 5 - 7 to celebrate our first anniversary. We choose this place because of it's ambiance and a paradise-like scenery. The place is so quiet at knight and a very calming and relaxing event at night. Breakfast is very good and also the crew and owners.
It's a very reasonable price for one-of-a-kind stay.

See you again stunning vista on 2013!

I spent 4 days here around October of last year & I just love the place. They have a small hut in front of the beach which has a very good view of Bacuit Bay. They serve good food -- particularly, adobo which i ordered twice during my stay. The owner & staff is friendly & helpful. But 4 days in a year is not just enough for El Nido so im coming back again this year and will definitely book with Stunning Vistas again.

Hi Arian,

Thank you for the review. Gary and I are pleased that you had a wonderful time in El Nido. That is what we are here for-- to offer our guests a memorable El Nido experience. We have added rooms and a bar, as well as new services-- such as fishing, stand up paddle board, mangrove river tours and hiking at the Bulalakaw water falls (not part of the inland tours that most tour operators offer). Please do come back and we'll give you a discounted rate.

All day dining can be enjoyed in the new 50+ seater air conditioned restaurant with large cocktail bar or on the road side patio or in the lovely beach garden which is beautifully lit at night. Many guests prefer to dine in the shaded beach front viewing decks which offer spectacular sunset views between 5:00pm and 6:30pm. The resort’s two deep water wells ensure they never run out of beautiful fresh mountain water 24 hours per day. A high powered efficient generator is a back up for El Nido’s frequent brown-outs.

Kayaks and Bodyboards are available to hire by the half day from the hotel.
