We stayed for 6 days at this hotel. The people were very friendly and helpful. Room was nice with hot tea or coffee every day at any time included. Hotel was kept clean which was not easy to do with all the sand that was tracked in. Enjoyed the sitting room that was on each floor and if you were on the third floor you could see the bay from the balcony. Bathrooms were nice but need more water preasure. Also had generator that would turn on durning the day so you could have electricity. All in all a good hotel to stay when in El Nido

Room Tip: third floor is the best, However, they were building a forth floor.

My relatives and i were really satisfied during our stay last sunday. . The room was clean and the bathroom was spacious. Staff were very very friendly. there were sufficient books to read and the sofa was very comfortable. Free coffee is great. Free wifi. One of the best hotel in el nido. Good job Garnet.

good location, clean and having the AC is really a luxury in El Nido. After spending a night in one of the worst accomodation of my life with dirty shared bathrooms it was a joy to spend the next 2 nights at the Garnett hotel. staff was friendly and helpful. there is a tv and sofa on the 2nd floor.
a little bit expensive though.
breakfast was served in another building/cafe just in front of the beach, not really convenient but you get the nice view and the food was ok.
I would advise travelers to walk a few blocks away from the beach to find cheaper hotels or go to corong-corong (green view resort or talindak beach cottages) for better options

We just got back from the wonderful El Nido. We stayed at the hotel for 3 nights. Everything was perfect, my boyfriend and I could not wish for a better place to stay. Free coffee in the common room, fast wifi, hot shower from 2pm-6am, insulated rooms keep all the mosquitos out. Free breakfast across the street at habibi restaurant with the best view of the el nido beach. Our room was not facing the street, so it was very quiet the whole time. Staff were very friendly and helpful. They can book tours and transportations for you. We checked out 8 in the morning without noticing we left our home key in the room. One of the personnels ran to the bus station and gave us the key right before we left. Without a doubt, we would stay at this hotel again.
The myth about no power 6am-2pm. Supposingly, the entire town should be out of power during those hrs. Although, the garnet hotel only cuts the electricity for A/C, cable, and hot shower from 6am-2pm and everything else from 3am-7:30am. So you can still enjoy a hot coffee with wifi and fan in the morning. It really makes sense because El Nido 'beach' is hardly a beach, so all the tours go out around 9am and come back around 4pm.

Room Tip: Pay the extra for a AC room. AC can keep you cool and keep Mosquitos away.

This is a new hotel, located right in the middle of El Nido Town, although it is not beachfront, the roads are so narrow, you can actually see the beach from the balcony. Standing tall beside its neighbors.

The family room was spacious, with one queen bed and one single bed. Equipped with tv, aircon and water heater. The comfort room is clean. The hotel staff are nice and would gladly help to book you on an island hopping tour.

During check out, it was raining, the owner of the hotel came up to us and offered his brand new car for a ride.

I definitely recommend this hotel as this is one of the very few hotel in El Nido town offering modern facilities.
