Reviewed November 17, 2013 via mobile

Hotel in the first beach line. Wife slow but still works. It is important that you can pay by credit card. Air conditioned. Staff very friendly. Hotel in the town centre. Rooms are small but clean. Open desk for 24 hours. There is a great view at the roof.

Stayed: November 2013, traveled as a couple

The room was clean in appearance, the staff was really friendly, the hot shower worked well and the tv worked too. Based on those things I would say great for the price. But there were A LOT of mosquitoes that got in our rooms. We killed so many, but more would come in while we slept. We also think they had another bug that was biting us at night. We would wake up with mosquito bites and smaller bites that didn't look like mosquito bites. We were all pretty relieved when we left to a different hotel, the other hotel was really nice. It might have been just a bad time when we went there because I didn't see anything about this in the other reviews.

The hotel is small, with only about ten rooms in total. The rooms were basic but adequate -- good beds, TV and air-con. The bathroom was quite small though.

There's a balcony in every floor from where you can see the view of the sea. There's also the top floor if you'd rather see the limestone cliff. This is a beachfront property, so there's no hassle if you're going to or coming from an island hopping tour.

This is also one of the most affordable hotels in El Nido. Plus, the staff were friendly. All in all, we had a good stay.

Only stayed there for one night but really liked it especially after 5 days on a boat after our Tao trip! Had nice comfortable bed, hot shower, was in the centre of el nido and with a really great view of the bay.
Staff were really friendly and helpful. We booked a day trip to the lagoons with their help which worked out great. Also let us use their shower facilities after we had checked out. Should I be lucky enough to be el nido again- I would definitely stay in Nido Bay Inn again :)

Great place to stay next to the beach in El Nido. The staff were courteous and always helpful. The location is good, near the Art Cafe and also Pura Vida making it easy to get a decent meal, motorbike hire and there are plenty of places selling the island hopping tours nearby. You are also not near any of other noisy bars so you shouldn't be kept awake all night. The roof terrace is fantastic for a San Miguel or two in the evening.

The faults off the place are no online booking (other than PayPal), standard rooms are basic and the rate does not include breakfast which some places do.

Still, I enjoyed my stay here and would go back if I return to El Nido.

Stayed for a few days there. We were a group of 4 in a double bedroom. The room was clean at least for the first day...sand tends to fill up any and every void. The bathroom was ok, shower was a bit lifeless but by unplugging the showerhead you could get some pressure through. The room itself was a bit tight for everybody at once but since we were not planning on straying there but to sleep, clean up and stash our stuff it suited us fine. Located in a great spot just beside Art Café which is a centre spot in town. The price is a bit upscale but worth it. Would definetly stay there again. Give my regards to the cute girl in the front desk...she has the brightest smile.

The rooms are very basic on the side away from the beach ! I wasn't very impressed coming from the hotel up the street ! Good for a dingle traveler as there is no room to move ! Shared amenities also, which I'm not to fused over !! Wifi didn't work in these rooms ! The lovely girl at the front counter is wonderful !
