We believe this is the best accommodation in El Nido because: It is right on the beach At this place the beach is clean and has the biggest extension. Swimming is very good once the tour boats are gone (between 10 and 16 H) The hotel garden provides a lot of shade due to the many trees The hotel garden...

There are some massive positives to this hotel, most notably the idyllic location on the beach from which you can sit and admire the passing crowds and views from your sun covered table and chairs. It really is special. You are also handily right next to the area where the boat tours depart and within the town centre for easy...

Standard rooms were nice, but I think they are setup a little impractical. A/C was not in an area that was near the beds which would keep you cool and comfortable in the evening. Of the 5 nights we were there, we only had hot water for 2 of them. Water pressure also not so great. TV was placed in...

Amazing location in the center & directly on the beach! Small & Cozy Hotel. Tours pickup are directly on the beach in front of the hotel so you don't have to worry about missing your Tour. It is a bit noisy at night. Make sure you book a couple of weeks in advance since the hotel has a limited number...

After 4 months of planning my trip to the Philippines. I've decided to book this hotel for my El Nido trip and I am so happy I did. They were very responsive to my emails beforehand about all the questions I had and I really appreciate that. The staff are able to book your shuttle and Tours for you. So...

Our room came with A/C, I believe you can pay $8-10 extra a night for it. Not necessary but comes in handy when room is a bit muggy. You could totally do without. Also, free breakfast everyday from 6-9 am. Rooms are 20 feet away from beach, great location and walking distance to a lot of happy hour bars and...

I originally booked a different hotel in El Nido, but when I saw this place, I immediately switched. It's got everything you could ask for in a beach hotel. It's right on the beach, it has a nice little bar/cafe, and it has plenty of beach chairs. It's also got a fully staffed front desk to help you with booking...

Got a room not facing the beach. Cheaper than the beach front rooms but more expensive than competitors. Worth the little bit extra though. Very comfortable. Kind of stylish. Breakfast service was fantastic.. order night before (included) and they give you a knock when it's ready. Nice touch. Great mango smoothie.

We have been there for 3 nights. Overall, experience was OK. Hotel is well located right in the center of El Nido with direct access to the beach. Rooms are in good condition but bed should have better mattress and there is not enough water pressure. For that price in Philippines, we should expect daily service in rooms (just a...

The Inn is very colorful because of their light and vibrant colors. It feels like you're still at home. The room is big enough for 2-3. Their standard and deluxe room doesn't have any differences but only the hot shower. The standard room that we got has a beach view but you really don't need it. The bed is okay...
