We went there in july 2013 and we really love this place. It was clean, nice and you feel in the jungle but no bug. There is a nice pool and this place is very safe.The owner is very sympatic. I will come back for sure to this place.

We spent 2 weeks at El Nido near Playa Chiquita in April. Paolo, Vittoria and Nina were the best hosts you could possibly ask for. They were there to take care of us and addressed anything that needed attention immediately. We felt well taken care of. We arrived after Easter Week and the entire coast had slowed downed considerably and...
