Location was perfect. Hospitality was perfect. Room was absolutely horrendous. It Genuinely made me ill. It was filthy and just stunk of damp. It was just horrible. No hot water what so ever. Its a real shame because even the wifi was half decent... If they just made some minor renovations to the room it could be really good! But...

Rico's cottage is conveniently located along Corong-corong beach, which means, a vast choice of dinner place, souvenir shops, cafés, 24 convenience store and even banks are all in walking distance, but it is located at the edge of the strip, so you still get to enjoy quiet evening, away from the noise of El Nido night life with nothing to...

I strongly advice to not go to this resort. The management set a price regarding how you looks like. A couple next door paid the same room a thousand less than us, cause they negotiate the price. We arrived late and trust the management honesty. They do not know how to smile and be helpful. Rooms are quiet big with...

We paid PHP2,500 per night for 5 days - aircon room. At night, my husband and I can hear the waves as we sleep, which I...

Booking Rico's was really quite confusing as when I sent a text message no reply came and so I sent a message on their facebook page as well as sent an email. They replied after a few hours but with different prices so I was confused, I was probably talking to two different people. At first, we were a little...

We had an aircon room on the ground floor. It was spacious, clean, and had good guest house standard. A complimentary breakfeast was included. You can chose between philippino, american, and continental. However, killer feature for us was the veranda, where you can sit, look into El Nido bay and listen to the waves. A perfect place to spend some...

Had a wonderful experience here the staff were always smiling and willing to help with any question we had The breakfast (pancakes) served to the room and the view from our balcony was just mind blowing. Aircon and comfortable bed International electricity plugged in the room made life really easy with charging our electronics.
