We stayed here for 6 nights and cherished each day. Perfect hideout to leave all your worries behind and relax. little expensive but worth every penny spent. 24hrs electricity with AC. No TV and No WiFi in rooms. Which disconnects you from everything in your current life stress and help you unwind. Free tricycle drop and pickup at anytime, so...

We had the resort pick us up at the El Nido airport for 200PHP. The person came right on time. We reserved the pool view bungalow. We were two bungalows from the beach. We had wonderful view from our room and porch. There was also a pool a few steps from our room. The room was comfortable with a fan...

We spent 5 days in the resort and enjoyed our stay a lot. It's a well kept small resort, with beautiful views, quiet atmosphere and nice villas. We liked that it is a walking distance from the village, close to walk but far from its noise. It's a bit pricy but probably is the best accommodation in the village if...

To be honest I was a bit worried reading the reviews about the quality of the hotel and service however I found it was a lovely stay and believe me it's hard to impress me. We found the receptionists welcoming and very helpful. They explained the wifi would be poor due to the lack of signal in Palawan in general...

Stayed 5 nights in poolview bungalow which we recommend since bigger, kingbed, mirror doors which means you can keep the curtains open during the day and no one sees inside ( which became nice when became sick and had to stay in bed, at least could see the view outside). Also had more of a sea view than pool which...

Have to agree with the other reviews that this resort is very expensive for what you get and the staff were hands down some of the most useless and surley hotel staff i have encountered in my years of travelling. Completely untrained, impolite and disinterested. Everything in the hotel is too expensive and, given you can get this view from...

The service needs a lot of training. The people who work at the front desk needs to learn a Hospitality 101 even their boss needs to sign up for this course so they would know how to properly do their work. They have to realize that it is not just about the money. They have a very lovely location with...

We enjoyed our 3 night stay ! We were surprised that the hotel was much nicer than the pictures online. We really enjoyed the quite location and the walks into town. We also met the owner that gave us a great tip on a secluded beach

I was not really impressed with the resort. Rooms were small. Expensive food. No fridge - no bottled water provided. Had to get filtered water from the restaurant. No television, phone, poor wifi. Facilities for the price of 10000 pesos a night is poor.

A small resort that isn't that easy to get to if you have heavy suitcases. You have to take a tricycle along some very precarious pathways to get here. Our room was clean but there is no fridge, complementary bottled water, tv or hairdryer. It's a very small resort with a nice pool and restaurant. All the staff are friendly...
