I’ve been to El Nido several times but Birdhouse remained as one of the best places I’ve ever stayed at!! The entire Birdhouse flock is very accommodating and welcoming from the moment we step foot on the island to the day me and my friends left and I couldn’t be happier! On top of that, the food is impeccable and the view is simply breathtaking - you’ll never want to leave! Highly recommend to anyone who’s looking for a one of a kind experiences in one of the most magical places in the Philippines! Thank you Mark and the Birdhouse team! Can’t wait to be back!

This place made our first Valentine’s Day as husband and wife a memorable one. I love how we enjoyed the scenery in every step we made, in order to reach this little paradise in ElNido. The food was deliciously good! The view was breathtaking! People were kind and approachable that if felt like you’re at home. What could we ask for more? :) We would definitely return to this place even a thousand times! 💕

My wife and I stayed at the Birdhouse over the new year at the end of 2020. On the day we checked in, our friend fell about 10ft through rotten floorboards at the resort amazingly incurring no life-changing injuries. Our stay was undoubtedly tainted by this horrible accident. However, I will review our stay. Check in was smooth, the local staff working there are wonderful. The location is fine. The views from the restaurant are lovely. But, I was nervous on our platform, fearful of falling through the wooden boards. I did not feel safe on the property. The place is overpriced for sure. The tents need renewing (the main zip on ours broke and remained broken throughout our 5 day stay, and there was a leak from the structure above that dripped loudly on the tent when it rained, although fortunately it didn't rain too much overnight). We knew there'd be cold showers, limited electricity and internet. Even the dead frog we found in our tent was OK - we're camping, after all - but as such, it is difficult to justify the extravagant price. We walked along the beach to other bars - but coming back at night with a high tide was tricky. Indeed, my wife cut her foot on rusty metal that she didn't see as she was forced to walk in the water. The Birdhouse offered adequate first aid, but the first question asked of us as we arrived, blood gushing out of her foot was whether the accident had happened on the property - not whether she was actually ok... For me, that was telling. We found a clinic the next day for a tetanus shot.  El Nido is beautiful. Go, for sure. We are going again in a month. But, we won't be staying at the Birdhouse.

Hi Patrick H., Thank you for booking with us. We are sorry to hear about your experience but absolutely appreciate the constructive feedback. We hope that your wife is much better now after what happened at the beach. Of course we want to know where any health or safety incidents occur as to be able to remedy any problems. In regards to the incident with your friend that was an unfortunate accident. It surprises us that even after the accident of your friend she was able to stick around for a few days without any medical attention but we are happy she was ok in the end. She was very happy to receive a full refund and payment for her next night's stay in El Nido at another property. Again, we do appreciate you alerting us about this post-stay and have over the past two months working on our maintenance given the long pandemic and the jungle setting. The tents have been replaced, we apologize that this was an issue during your stay. We ran on a skeletal staff in December given the low number of tourists and from April 2020 onwards have kept mainly maintenance and construction staff to do repairs. We believe they have done a good job and would love to welcome you back so you can see for yourselves. In regards to the beach, we have worked with the neighboring properties to try to keep the area clean. As a visitor to the Philippines, it is important to note that we don't have the same socio-cultural behaviors that are common in the west, waste management being one of the particularly glaring issues in the Philippines. We have our children and the children of our neighbors barefoot in the beach area in front of us. Regardless, we hope you enjoy your next visit to El Nido. Chirp chirp, The Birdhouse Flock
