“Accommodating Accommodation”
Reviewed January 13, 2014

We arrived really late at night from Puerto Prinsesa. We were so tired and disoriented from the grueling 6-hr (or more) ride to El Nido. When we arrived, I informed them that we just arrived, and they called us right away to let us know how to get there. We had a miscommunication with how many we are, they only prepared the room for 2 persons, however, they moved really fast and added another bed. We stayed in a fan room, but we slept comfortably. I'd say that the room is well-ventilated.

Their breakfast options are simple, but we were satisfied with the taste and simple presentation. Eating breakfast by the beach with an amazing view is truly heaven!

All three of us, girls, felt safe and secure there. The owners were really hands on, very helpful and friendly. They made sure that our stay in El Nido is comfortable and fun. We felt really well taken care of at Angel Nido. If we go back, we'll definitely stay there again!

If you want to have a relaxing stay, away from all the noise of the busy parts of El Nido, choose Angel Nido.

We stayed at Angel Nido for four nights. The owner and his wife really go out of their way to accommodate you in every single way. The price / quality is really good and the walk to the town is not a problem at all. It was nice to stay a little outside of the noisy town centre.

Peaceful piece of El Nido with very friendly and helpful owners and stuff. Rooms are nice and clean. Great breakfasts with wonderful view to sea and islands! Only 15 minutes walk away from the center of El Nido.

We stayed in Angelnido for 7 nights and our stay was very relaxed. I cannot agree more with all the positive reviews below which are corresponding to the truth as well as the position of the beach, the position of the location, the distance from the center etc. ( what you want to do at night in the center anyhow is a mistery as I have found the village very rural and basic therefore we just ate there and went to bed after that).

We stayed in Cottage 1 which I believe was the one which had the bathroom problems ( from a review below) but the problem now has been solved and no other signs of mushy stuff is around or near the walls.
Bathrooms are clean and simple, you have warm water when the electricity is on and wireless works fine as well, bearing that you are in a remote place and some connections might not always be at their best. You don't come to El Nido for a holiday made of bars and restaurants or great shopping and if you expect this, you will be very disappointed. But if you are looking to explore an island which is still under development, with a great nature, great beaches, this is the place for you.

All staff at AngelNido is kind. I like the fact that Matteo, being Italian, is always responsive, you can call him and he answers the phone and you can rely on his word. With some locals, it simply doesn't work like that, as they have a different vision or habits and I found Matteo to be very trustworthy.
Matteo has arranged for us a private pick up from the airport in Princesa and to the airport. He is always attentive to the requests of his clients and one day he has also brought us to a beach tour. Breakfast is simple but cheap prices. In near Cadlao resort you can have a proper more complete breakfast for more than the double offered by Angel Nido so it is up to you. We sometimes had breakfast at Cadlao, sometimes at Angel Nido.
It is true that there is no lounging area where you can stay but for a few words you are welcome to sit by the main porch where Matteo and his family welcome you. This place has sort of ' family' business rather than a cold reception therefore if you don't mind to be treated as such,this is the place for you.
If you want your own privacy, you can have it also.
Angelica their little girl is a real entertainer and you will spotted her around playing with their lovely dog Angelo or simply coming to you questioning about anything. I would not stay anywhere else in El Nido as I have found the locations in the city center to be a bit doggy and not very clean from an outside point of view while at Angel Nido I felt safe, clean and with no worries if I paid the right amount because I am sure we did.

Cadlao resort is near by in case you want a good massage ( more expensive than those in the city where you will just be placed on a bed-clean? mh- while in Cadlao you will do a massage under a lovely hut, with the sound of the sea).

We stayed in Angelnido Resort for three nights and I would highly recommend it - great value for money! The location is right at the beach (ask for Caalan Beach), very well managed and looked after - and only a 10 to 15 minutes walk away from the center of El Nido. The cottages are lovely decorated and super clean - a real comfort zone. All of them have a small balcony where you can relax and enjoy the sound of the waves while enjoying a cold drink. Showers have hot and cold water and a good water pressure.
The host family has a Filipino-Italian background and they are lovely people that really made us feel at home and welcome. They also connected us with a boat owner and organized an island hopping tour to some of the outer islands. Since their cottages are located right at the beach and tricycles or cars cannot get to that place (enjoy the silence!!!) they also pick you up with a motorbike in El Nido center and help you with your luggage if needed.
Thank you to Gian Matteo and his family!

We stayed in Angel Nido Resort for ten days and it was nice to stay a little bit outside of the "city" but still it was a walking distance anywhere. Owners and staff were very friendly and it was easy to ask them something if you needed help. Rooms are nice and cleaned every day. Rooms were also quiet and private. View to the sea is truly amazing! I can't think of a better way to start your day than enjoying your breakfast on a terrace and enjoying the view (by the way, breakfast was good and cheap). Electricity and wi-fi worked everyday. We had great time in El Nido and I can only say good things about Angel Nido Resort, I highly recommend it if you want to feel like home away from home. Cozy, clean, beautiful and safe.

Room Tip: Room 3 was nearest to the sea

If you are on a tight budget in El Nido, watch out because things here are just generally pricey. Food is average and expensive, and the outings can kill your budget if you aren't creative.

If you are the type on a tight purse string and don't mind a 10 minute walk into town for your action, AngelNido is the best option we experienced by far. El Nido town is quite dirty and crowded so Calaan Beach offers a peaceful haven for those seeking a more pristine experience.

You have to walk past a graveyard and village to get here, and tricycles don't dare take on the narrow roads to Calaan so rent a motorbike and you can go it on your own.

This beachfront hotel is small and friendly with clean nicely appointed rooms, private verandas and sometimes hot showers. Be prepared that you can't swim in Calaan, but actually in El Nido the water is pretty dirty so you anyway have to get out of the bay to swim.

One thing is that there are no real lounging areas at Angel Nido and no restaurant so if you want a resort vibe, maybe this is not for you. But for a simple clean good value beach hotel, I wouldn't go anywhere else.
