We really enjoyed our stay at Charlie’s. The property is fairly new with cool and contemporary white washed buildings and modern stylish rooms. Location was very good for us, close to lovely Lio beach and a 15 minute moped ride to El Nido town. Staff are all super friendly, happy and attentive. Special thanks to Marvin at the bar for his addictive and invigorating fruit shakes (the highlight of breakfast) and Venus for the wonderful breakfast service she gave us.
One of the most overpriced hotels in El Nido (not actually in El Nido). The hotel is so far away from town they offer a free shuttle bus, however the shuttle bus has set times that are extremely infrequent you end up having to pay for your own way into town every time. They charge high prices but the food is extremely average. Do not stay at this over priced hotel that is in the middles of nowhere 20 minutes from town or the beach. The sorrow ding area does not even have a beach and the view at either site is an eye sore.
The owners are trying very hard to make this a boutique hotel at the higher end of the scale but it misses the mark in a few areas; the breakfast is rather uninspiring, the staff in the restaurant need to be more proactive, the neighbouring plot is an eyesore, the windows let in a lot of noise from the area below, etc. This is not a beachfront property and you need to take a trike to get to most places although the hotel does have a shuttle which runs a limited service. Very good evening meals. Despite the comments above, this probably ranks as one of the better properties in El Nido.
Good place, good food. Location is near the airport. Staff is very helpful, some rooms are spacious but some rooms are so tiny. A lot of parking space in the hotel. Too many walk if you come with groups of people, in different room. So coordinate it well.
We absolutely loved our stay at Charlie’s. The staff were so welcoming, friendly, and always went to great extents to accommodate to our needs. They take all the necessary Covid precautions and everything was very sanitary. It is around 10 minutes drive to the city, but it is a great escape as the city can be noisy especially at night. They offer a free shuttle that stops hourly in the city and at lio beach (they have a gorgeous beach and lots of nice restaurants located here). Everything you could ever need is on site at the hotel. They have a restaurant which serves good food for a fair price and can be ordered to your room. They work with multiple companies which they can arrange tours, car service, and renting motorcycles all for you without having to take a trip to the city. Charlie’s made our trip at el nido so pleasant and effortless. I would highly recommended this hotel!
