Stumbled upon Verde Safari after renting a motorbike to tour the island. Stayed for lunch and after a lengthy sales pitch from the owner decided to stay a couple nights in the rooms. The beach is beautiful and empty and the owner let's you swim out to his boat to sunbathe/practice back flips. The rooms were lovely and the tap water is drinkable which was such a nice treat. There is no AC option and the generator powering the fan is turned off in the evening and middle of the night so can get warm from time to time. Unfortunetly the doors and windows aren't completely sealed so by night 2 we had visitors. The food was delicious, though the menu is very limited and it is your only option since there's nothing else around, but the beer genuinely is the coldest in El Nido, possibly all of the Philippines. The place was really nice and the owners and staff are lovely, it's just a shame he pushes sales so hard; for the rooms, his boat trip and even the food he wants you to eat. His conversations are very one sided and can be heard repeated like a monologue near word for word to other guests throughout the day. He has every reason to be proud of what he's built but it would've been nice if he let it speak for itself. All in all, if you want a nice beach away from the El Nido crowd, this is the place to go.
