We showed up at El Nido late on a rainy day in August and they were quickly able to accommodate four of us - two parents and two teens - in one of their lovely new cabins. These cabins are beatutifully designed in natural wood, with high ceilings, a well equipped spacious kitchen, a California King-sized bed and a futon couch that converts to a bed. Shower and bathrrom were separate - a must for four people. There was a lovely small porch with wooden chairs and a hammock. The place was very clean, modern and spacious. There is a pool and a hot tub in the grounds - though both were not heated. This was fine since it was so hot and humid.
There was a lovely breaskfast included in the rate of $100 per night - eggs, tropical fruit, coffee. toast, juice. Sylvio, a young local man, prepares the breaksfast and speaks perfect English. He knows where everything is locally - like the nearby trail to the beach, where the cacoa farm is located, and which are the best surfing beaches.
The place is managed and owned by Gail (from Vancouver) when were were there. She takes turns with her daughter, Maitreya, to run the place. They are lovely helpful people.
We highly recommend this great new place - it's quiet (if you don't count the early mornng arrival of howler monkeys), beautiful and close to some very nice local restaurants.and the beach. Check it out
