Treetops
Ranked #21 of 105 El Nido B&B and Inns
Reviewed March 20, 2012

Stayed for only 3 days at treetops but we loved it. We had stayed in town for a few days prior (treetops was fully booked). Our good luck bad luck was that that in our last day in town we eat at a restaurant and my wife and I got sick and wow were we glad that we had moved to Treetops; David and Grace opened up their home to us. As my wife and I were a little timid with food to have home cooked food (started off with a pumpkin veggie soup); then adapted the dinner to have more food that would help us get back on our feet. Of course you never want to get sick but good to know that even if that state we really enjoyed our stay here.

Positives: The hosts are so kind, outgoing and warm; A super clean bathroom with lots of light and hot showers (when sick can not be overstated on how important it is). Food was great and adaptable; Always a tricycle taxi whenever we needed; tours easily arranged and dependable. Well maintained and cared for property as it shows to be a home first and a business second when it comes to care. Oh and very responsive to email for questions and booking (given need to factor in the time change)

Negatives: hmm ... well I have to say the fact that there is only two cottages makes landing a cottage not a lock

Side note: tour C is amazing & tour A is great too

We stayed for 5 nights at Treetops in Feb 2012 and had a great experience. 2 lovely cottages with comfortable bed, clean ensuite bathroom with hot water and family touch. Grace cooked delicious dinners every night and breakfast great value. THey organise day trips island hopping for you and trips to the waterfalls. El Nido itself can be crowded and so great to be out of it with only a short tricycle ride. Everyone couldn't have been more helpful and we loved our stay. couldn't recommend it enough. Thank you!

we were staying in treetops only for 3 days and Treetops girls made it really nice! It was four of us and we stayed in one room witch was big enough and had a privet patio. Grace, one of the owners, was really helpful and she and her sister made a fantastic dinner and breakfast for us. the atmosphere of this place is amazing and the prizes are really reasonable! We can say that it was the best accommodation in Philippines for us!

If you are a couple looking for a romantic place this is where to stay in El Nido. It's located a few minutes ride with a tricycle out of El Nido, on Corong Corong beach, but for us that was an advantage. It is so peaceful and because there are only 2 or 3 cottages also very private. Our cottage was't very big but we didn't mind because it was decorated with a lot of style. It was also very, very clean and we got fresh flowers every day. The best part of it is the balcony where you can relax and enjoy the perfect sunsets.

They can also arrange "island-hopping" trips for you, which are very good value. We booked our first trip at El Nido Boutique & Artcafé and the second at Treetops. The prices were the same, the itineraries also, but with the boat from Treetops it was more private. We were only 4 people for the same price we payed at Artcafe and there was 12 or even more people on the boat.

We stayed 5 nights over New Years in two Bungalows in Treetops and it was definitely the right choice to stay! The rooms are clean and very beautiful, decorated with flowers every day. The whole area is a beautiful a jungle garden right on the sea with an amazing view.
Dave was not here but Rachel, Mariel and the boy were very friendly and we were invited to a great cooked New Years Eve dinner.
We can definitely recommend this place!

We spend Christmas this year at Treetops and we had a really great stay. Treetops is amazing. It's almost like being in a 5 star hotel, but with a more homey vibe. They even cooked for us for free on Christmas eve. :-)

The 2 girls that took care of us were unbelievably friendly. You always here that in reviews but they were really the best hostesses we ever met. The breakfast was really really nice on a beautiful location.

The rooms are very nice, maybe the best we had in 3 months Philippines. We recommended it to a lot of fellow travellers we met along the way.

If you need a place to stay in El Nido, then pick Treetops. It's really worth the money (2500 pesos per night).

To manage expectations: Tree Tops isn't on the beach, it didn't have air con and it isn't in the heart of El Nido. However, the room was exactly what we were looking for. Located three minutes by tricycle from both Las Cabanas beach (awesome) and El Nido town it was ideally located (40-100 pesos depending on how hard you can be bothered to haggle). The room was excellent (queen bed, en suite shower, satellite TV, balcony), kept spotlessly clean and the hospitality was second to none.

Tree Tops is a small bed and breakfast with three rooms set in lovely gardens. It is quiet, the rooms have their own balcony and guests have access internet and a living room where required. There is also a gazebo overlooking the water and perfectly primed for sunset viewing.

We had two dinners at Tree Tops and the meals were excellently cooked (not five star eating but if you are looking for that then El Nido is not for you), tasty, reasonably priced and on both occasions more food than we could eat.

The girls looked after us spectacularly. Were unfalteringly helpful and friendly and kept the place in perfect order. As a place to relax and unwind without expecting a big resort experience Tree Tops is close to perfect and I would have no hesitation in recommending it to all of my friends.
