This hotel has a great location on the beach in Downtown El Nido with friendly staff. The view from the top floor restaurant/bar is excellent, breakfast was good although I had reservations about the two dogs living in the kitchen, one barked frequently. We were on the 4th floor accessed by timber stairs – no elevator. The small room was made even smaller with the addition of a single bed next to the queen bed and a half sized, very noisy, dirty refrigerator in front of the mirror. The exhaust fan in the bathroom sounded like a helicopter. The real concern we had with this property was the lack of fire detection and fire alarms systems. The fire detection wiring was hanging out of the ceiling (perhaps ready for future connection), the emergency lighting was sitting on top of the refrigerator but not connected to anything and there was no fire alarm. The evacuation plan on the back of the door showed evacuation via a fire escape which did not exist. If there was a fire, escape would have been very difficult if not impossible. This hotel should not be operating as it does not comply with the current Philippine fire code. We were booked for 3 nights but unfortunately we arrived very late and did not have time to relocate. Feeling very unsafe at this property, we changed hotels the next day.…
Very nice place to have a rest. Very friendly stuff. The beach is very comfortable, a huge amount of fishes to play with:)) . The eating is personally thinking. I liked it very much.In a word, very fantastic place to go with your family.
I don't know what people are fussing about. This was a great place to stay! The room that I got was quite small but I was provided with everything I needed -- comfortable bed, cold AC, a mini refrigerator, the water pressure was great in the showers, and the toilet had a bidet. The bathroom was very spacious too. My booking came with free breakfast and I was impressed at the options. But the best part was the staff and hosts/owners/managers. They were very kind and lovely, attending to my needs and took some time to chat with me. It felt very homey and that's the charm of this place.
Our room at the third floor was clean and spacious. The bed was very comfy and big with clean sheets. Bathroom is also clean with working hot/cold shower and towels. Our only issue was the toilet as it clogged on our second day but the staff fixed it immediately. Their hotel staff were very helpful and nice; their front desk staff (Arlene) even helped us get a tricycle for our tour of Nacpan/Lio/Marimegmeg beaches. Breakfast at the 5th floor was good and the view from there is amazing. APTR's location is very accessible as it is in the town proper. It's very close to the port (where the island hopping tour starts) and within walking distance to and from restaurants, ATMs, church, pasalubong stores, etc. I will definitely stay here again and recommend it to my family/friends.
I think we were lucky and scored the main balcony room, looking straight out into the beach/bay. Clean, bathroom with window and fan, hairdryer, relaxing dining area just upstairs with wifi and excellent views. We’d come back for sure.
