This Hotel is the worst hotel I have ever stayed at. The rooms are old, infested with ants and bugs. The rooms open into a large area with doors wide open to an mosquito infested area. There is stagnant water on the property so insects were a big problem. Hostess did not even greet us . She just pointed to...

The staff were friendly and the place was just right for its price. Maybe an improvement on the breakfast will do (been eating scrambled eggs for 2 days). Mr. Joseph Carbonell is worth the mention for answering my queries online. Kudos!

Awesome place. This place is close to the beach, rooms with private bathrooms and working toilets, showers, and sinks. Safe and secure rooms. Friendly staff that can book tours, rent motorcycles, and give recommendations of things to do in the area. It isn't on the busy streets so you are away from the noise. Breakfast and coffee and free and...

We went here last Feb 2016. The rooms and bfast were okay though the bathrooms are not that well maintained. There's wifi in the lobby but signal is weak inside the rooms. There was a smell but bearable. I think the bedsheets and blankets are not being regularly replaced. Anw, since we have an overloaded sched of activities, we literally...

The very first second we checked in, the 4 girls of us already felt like being home. It was such a nice and delightful welcoming! The stuff is incredibly helpful and do really care about you having a good time. Every morning I was looking forward to have the breakfast of Cynthia which was always on point - fresh fruits,...

We arrived in El Nido late at night with little accommodation available. We got directed to this place by a local and was pleasantly surprised. En suite, fan and the breakfast was really good value for money! It's tucked just off the street so it's a bit quieter but still in a safe area. Perfect find.

Me and my boyfriend stay there for 3 days, during the last night we were sleeping and someone entered at the room and stolen all our money. The hotel is a house, we were up stairs and had few guests there. I strongly believe that was someone from the staff, they said that the key is not duplicated but in...
