We arrived in Elnido without a reservation. It was hard to find a place and we ended up paying a bit more for one of there more expensive rooms - with aircon and hotwater. This was a blessing as I got ill and it made my stay a little more comfortable. Its right on the beach which is nice and in the middle of the two main streets so not as noisy as other.
The breakfast was ok you only get a choice of Milo(chocolate) or coffee with breakfast. Can be busy so if ur going on a day tour make sure you get ur order in early.
The art cafe is great place to eat and book your tours but dont order Tea its made with the local water! We did tour c which was great - good BBQ, I would recommend taking a wet suit or something that covers u up a bit more than a bikini and something for your feet as there are lots of little jelly fish when going into secret beach and it stings.
If you can avoid it do not get the boat to Coron - its nightmare at 8 hours long. The 4 hour ferry no longer runs. I would spend ur time in Coron and surrounding islands rather than Puerto Princessa/Sebang or El nido.
