“Worth a visit”
Reviewed June 1, 2014 via mobile

we stayed here for 4 nights and we simply enjoyed our stay. the bed was comfortable and the staff outstanding. we were helped at any point, they even woke up only for us for our early departure and brought us to the local bus station. the only negative thing to say is the breakfast. the portion is very small! i suggest to eat somewhere in town nearby with more choice and bigger portions!

the cottage close to the sea is stunning, the sower needs a bit of a touch-up but otherwise satisfactory

we enjoyed our stay! thank you angel nido team for the personalized service!

There are plenty of great reviews on this place so I won't go into details. We enjoyed our stay here for 4 nights for the value. It's a small and simple place but accommodating. Staff is especially helpful and nice! Wife and I enjoy meeting them. You have direct access to the ocean but it's not sandy beach. You can work your way out though for deeper water. I was able to get to a spot and snorkel. There are some fish and coral to see but nothing close to what you can see on the tours. But the view of scenery is beautiful from the hotel. They have breakfast (simple) but no other meals available. We walked to a resort next door sometimes for meals. They have a full restaurant.

I noticed some comments regarding no power from 6am to 2pm. That's true throughout El Nido so it's a non-issue..

A couple of things I should point out:
1. The bedding is not as comfortable as I would like. It's on the harder side and pillows are cheap..
2. Another thing I must point out is the location. It is not off the main road and no trikes would come in. And it's about a 10 - 15 minute walk from the closest point of the main street. At night it's not a big deal (very little light but it's safe), but during the day it's really hot. Some other hotel near Angel Nido has its own trikes that take guests to town, but no outside trikes come in. At least none from the ones we asked. An Angel Nido staff has a motorbike however and we worked something out with him to take us to/from the town. Really nice guy so we are glad we can help each other out.
3. Lots of noise from next hotel at night.

In summary, worth the money. Love the staff. Further from town.

Room Tip: There are only 3 rooms. I would pick the one closest to ocean.

We stayed 4 nights in this beautiful place. Only 4 rooms so very quiet. Very nice sea view. Very comfortable room. The only negative things is that there are locals living on each side and they are very noisy. Don't expect to sleep in the morning. There is no electricity from 6am to 2pm so it's extremely hot during the day. The staff is great, Wifi is good, room service excellent. 15 min walk from town.

My husband and I came to elnido for our honeymoon and decided to stay here at angelnido resort after reading all the fantastic reviews - and well, to be quite honest - the reviews could never describe what a magical and enchanting place.. Our initial stay was for three days and we extended it to 6 nights - just so peaceful and full of happiness both with the cleanliness of the rooms and the beauty of the property and even the distance from the city center is perfect for privacy and tranquility - the price perfect as well as breakfast wonderful - finally above all : the staff is a perfect trio of friendly... Hospitable... And sincerely accommodating individuals - they never stopped smiling and willingly assiting with our needs and requests - beautiful Filipino people just like angels :) - the owner followed up with every email promptly and always offered a kind word and open ending should there be any other concerns - if you are looking for magical tranquility and helpfulness look no further :) and enjoy !!!

we had an excellent stay between 10-17 may14. the staff at the hotel is fantastic, very helpful and they will go the extra mile to accommodate you. The place is very nice and all 3 cottages are clean w air condition and breakfast.
there is a 15 minutes walking by the sea to reach the hotel, from the main road. the hotel is almost brand new as was done couple of years ago. We didn't have the chance to meet the owner Matteo( Italian) as was in Europe, but he sound very helpful over the email. Buena/Joy and Patou are the 3 hotel staff members ready to do anything for you to have a pleasant stay.

Room Tip: always good to have a flashlight with you as the streets in el nido not very well lighted// try to r...

We stayed here for 3 nights and it is difficault to challenge for the price we paid. Good location at around a 10 minute walk along the beach from El Nido. Clean room with aircon available at an extra cost of 400 peso per day. Great view from the back. Ocean is accessable but is rocky for the first 20 yards. Water is calm and shallow so great for a bob.

Would recommend getting the hotels number to call on arrival as it is quite hard to get to with cases and not too many local new where it was.

The only criticism i have is that the filipino nation are noisy people and El Nido wakens at 6am as the power shuts downs meaning no aircon. The hotel could do with chatting to there noisy neighbours and the bang and clatter at all ours.

EL Nido was great. Great food and drink options. Stunning town and bay view. Island hoping was breath taking. We shooped around and went with seahorse charlie which was by far the cheapest. We hired a private boat for the two off us and did tours A and C with food for 4400 peso. We went out at 07:30 to beat the traffic and believe me there is lots of traffic.

We ate in Marbers on the beach which was first class grub. i know we shouldnt but after 8 days of rice i had a burger and chips and have to say it probably the best burger i have had. Oh and proper home made chips. We also ate in Altrove which was also very good.

Please ensure you bring enough cash as it is near impossible to get money in El Nido. You can sway currency easily with the pawn shop just before but on the right hand side on the same street as the art cafe boutique offering the best deals. You can also get cash from your credit card on occassion from the Petrol station at the end of the beach after 4pm but it is on occassion.

A small note about Manila airport. The internal and international flight leave from different airport location so leave at least 2.5 hours between flights as Manila international if bedlam. Oh and it costs 500 peso per person to leave the country!!!

Please see my Daluyon resort review in Sabang for some great tips before booking.

Room Tip: There are only 4 small hut rooms which are all identical so not problems there.

AngelNido is a great place to stay in El Nido, it is about a 10 minute walk away from town on a path which hugs the coast. The fact that is's outside of town is great because it's quiet and you can get away from the noise. We took the walk several times and it was never a chore. There are only 3 beach huts there, but they are clean and spacious.

It's a really tranquil and beautiful resort. They have hammocks which overlook the bay, which are great to take the sunset in. The owner was really cool but his staff were a bit hit and miss. They weren't necessarily rude but every time I asked for something it seemed like I was inconveniencing them, but to their credit they helped every time! We booked tours through them and they picked us up from right outside which was great and they also arranged other services. All in all I would stay there again, because it's location and beauty is top notch for what you pay for.
