The linens were grayish due to poor laundering and overuse.. There was no water in the bathroom. The shower head had no hanger. There was no face mirror anywhere in the room. The coffee corner was filthy. My family was very disappointed that we just packed up and left to check ib to another hotel even if I had already...

The hotel is overpriced and run down. We payed 3400 peso per night but it wasn't even worth the half. The bathroom was so bad that you had to think twice if its really necessary to take a shower. There was no toilet paper in the cr. You have to ask for it at the reception. Lucky for you if...

This wasn't our first choice but everything else was fully booked. The air conditioning in our room was weak but the rooms were of a decent size. Bed was comfortable. You get free tea/ coffee in the communal area. Best thing about this place was the location. The hotel is literally less than 5 mins to the beach front. You...

Nice hotel nothing special but good value for money, stayed there 5 nights and was located in the middle of el nido everything is within walking distance and quiet in the night, rooms were clean and with aircon, no hot shower however which would have been nice after a long day diving.

Location of this hotel is great.Its very accessible to the dive center where I booked in. Staff are accommodating and the hotel is clean. Wifi is very limited but its easy to connect (just to check my email from time to time). Breakfast is served in Habibi where you can get nice food and view at the same time.Thanks to...

The hotel room is near to perfection unlike other 2 stars hotel however they don't offer free water at least but they do have free coffee or tea that you can get from the reception area. And their WiFi sucks. Its only a pocket wifi with low signal that you can only access at the reception area only. Hotel is...

Location is the only pro for this hotel..housekeeping and maintenance should do a better job..Few steps where the ferries for the island hopping are, otherwise youll have to get a tricycle or van to take you there. Very few nice hotels nearby.Try to check on other vendors before you book tours with the hotel..there are cheaper options, even half of...

We stayed here for four nights. Hotel was okay, good location but nothing special. We got bed bugs here. We kindly asked the staff to refund us for the night, and they fought us and wouldn't even reimburse us. They wouldn't even let us call the owner to ask for a refund. We weren't going to make a scene, but...

This hotel is clean, price is fair, staff is very friendly and on the main street. Those are the pros. I experienced many brown outs in my windowless room, which caused a very, very hot sleepless evening with a fire emergency light pointed in my eyes. The shower was warm, not hot and I couldn't get my TV to work....

Stayed at this place for a week over new year with a group of friends. We had 5 rooms between us all. Check in was a little chaotic, but once in, rooms were fine (basic, but it is a basic location). The aircon was great, beds comfortable, rooms clean. No hot water for the whole week but this could be...
