Reviewed yesterday NEW

The view is spectacular, the staff very nice, the food cooked by the chef is good. However, there are a few things that leaves a lot to be desired. The price of the hotel is about $120 per night. For that price, you expect certain things, like new towels every day, or a bathroom that doesn't flood because their shower...

We stayed for 4nights and just checked out yesterday, the resort was absolutely peaceful and perfect for someone who just wants to relax and enjoy the serene view and sound by the beach. The sunset was so amazing without the need to go out of our room. This place is secured and approximately 15mins away from town via tricycle/van which...

We booked a standard room (which at 7000 pesos is expensive for Palawan, although not for El Nido). There was no phone,fridge, coffee making facilities, no nightstands. The television didn't work and there was no vanity area in bathroom to place toiletries. The towels appeared grubby. (no hand towels provided) We had unwelcome guests (probably rodents) running around in the...

I felt instantly at peace in this hotel - it's peace and quiet was perfect after the bustle of el Nido. The hotel lobby and dining area under the tree was magical both at night with the lights and in the morning with the splendid views ☺️. Unfortunately didn't spend much time during the day relaxing here as we were...

We stayed here 2 nights in early March of 2017. There are great benefits to this hotel and recommend (to the hotel owners) upgrades that could be made. Location: 5 out of 5 stars If you want a hotel that is more than a 10 min' walk & 5 min' tricycle ride from El Nido downtown - this is the...

I LOVEEEEEEEE THIS PLACE!!!!! I have traveled to places far and wide. Stayed in many hotels and inns. We flew from Manila to El Nido airport via air swift (10/10 flight). Basically our first night in el nido we had to stay in the town at a different hotel which is a whole other story. But then we moved to...

I have a lot of things to say about this fantastic hotel…. First of all if to say that the service and the staff that are working there are impeccable…. That point compensates for the lack of attention into the details… It’s a wonderful hotel located in a wonderful place which could be very similar to the paradise… but the...

We had a wonderful stay at the El Nido Cove Resort! The property is absolutely stunning and faces a long stretch of a beautiful beach. The lobby and restaurant are open-air, which makes for some incredible views during meals. The rooms were clean, air conditioned, and perfect for our group of five twenty-somethings (we got two rooms). But by far...

The town of El Nido has become very popular with vacationeers from many countries. The scenery is magnificent, with lots of places for island hopping, diving, snorkeling and kayaling. The old town is teeming with people of all races and ages, which i found to be too much for me. El Nido Cove Resort is 10 kms away from the...

My first time on Palawan Island and therefore first time at this hotel. (and at the airport with the unique arrivals and departure lounges and singing locals to welcome you in or wave you goodbye.) Limited flights so book in early to get the times you want Felt like a setting from an Indiana Jones movie when I arrived! I...
