    This resort, as all resorts and hotels in this area. Are in full recovery mode. I've been here 45days. Yes, there are things broken. Yes, repairs are being made. If you're expecting Windham, Hilton style accommodations. You came to the wrong area. Unlike the west. USA for example. There wasn't any government funding for recovery after covid. %90 of all ElNido resorts/ hotels are mom and pop operations. Who have been shutdown for 2 years. Also the resent typhoon. Has caused considerable set backs.. With that said. I found the accommodations up to par for this area. And with the amazing view. Just makes it that much better. The resort is beautifully laid out. The friendly and helpful staff go the extra mile to meet your needs. The chef. Will make your meals to order. This is one of those places where you lose all sense of time. Everyone I've met, are saying they don't want to leave. The serenity and peace this place offers. Is unprecedented.

    The accommodation is in need of repair and on going upkeep. For example: broken flood lights just dangling from the cealing by the electrical wires; broken jacuzzi that is still full of dirty water and moulding towels sunken on the jacuzzi floor; our bath drain kept blocking every time we shower; the one shower room outside the rooms cant be used as it is left in unfinished state of repair. Dinner options were pretty good as cooked by Doods the evening chef. Breakfast was sub standard. The owners and staff were nice but it does not compensate for the poor standard that is not deserving of a 3 star accommodation. We had to go to the Cadlao resort (which is BTW also a 3 star accommodation) to get a decent cups of coffee and meals after we had our free, yet substandard , breakfast. The combo of magnificent view and the kind staff is the saving grace of this place. However the photos on the apps do not AT ALL represent the state of disrepair that this resort is in. One can imagine it was beautiful years ago when the photos were taken. However my heart sank when I walked in the place. 😔

    Million $ view. Amazing staff. Ocean Front. Beautifully-kept salt water infinity pool. Wiener schnitzel host specialty as German host trains local chef. Off the beaten path. Very quiet. Tranquil. Free rides to town. Variable Wifi. Closest to beach has low wifi, but worth the amazing view. Some signs of wear as ocean front salt water takes its toll. New French chef next door at Golden Monkey provides yet another dimension of gastronomic delights.

    SCAM! I feel embarrassed to even write a bad review on any hotel I ever been in. I always think there is staff and standards are different from place to place. But this one is HORRIBLE!!! Rooms are not maintained, dirty, mold and very bad smell! Service? It is the first time I wonder if it is even possible to have at least a good coffee in breakfast! Disgusting! The owner is unkind not to say much! All he cares is how to get money out of your pocket! The staff apologized every time he comes with weird behaviors !!! Seeing the reviews of 4 stars here; I just realize that this is a real SCAM. I wish there are 0 stars to be done! TO AVOID CERTAINTY !

    On arrival we noted a bad smell from the bathroom which was not very clean. There were ants all over the beds and tables. No actual blanket was provided - only a thin sheet. After 2 nights sleeping on the bed we noted we were getting bitten by bed bugs. The breakfast was very subpar and the toast was so burnt... it was more like a dried biscuit. Very stingy with the eggs also. either way, unfortunately it was a stay we were very eager to leave... we Checked out 2 nights early and went to somewhere with better hygiene. NOT. COMING.BACK EVER. We do not recommend this place. Especially for $200 Au a night.
