My partner and I had an amazing stay, everything was perfect, we had breakfast every day and the view was amazing, especially when the water is calm (it has a mirror effect). The staff were amazing, we would love to give a special thanks to Elma and Sheila for making our stay more wonderful.
Located away from the crowd, this is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the beach. The room is clean and nice. The ac works perfectly. They have a tuktuk that drives you to and from the center on request. Breakfast is included and very good. They do everything to help you from renting motorcycles to daily boat tours, you name it!
The beachfront seaview is super worth it. There's a lot of costruction sites going on in the area - the "filipino way" is to start working at 5.30-6 am, which definetely affects guests stay. The hotel has power blackouts and you are never sure if you will have water to make yourself a shower. For who needs the WiFi, please make sure you can buy your own Sim card, therefore the hotel one is not reliable at all. This is not El Nido problem- since I have been asking other "resorts" and they will have more than 3 wifi connections, their own generator and their own water pomp. Rooms are nice, aircon sounds like a tractor and was difficult to sleep the first 2 nights, mosquitos are inside the room, please be prepared with proper protection. Staff is mostly helpful, this is a family-run guesthouse and sometimes you can see them making pool parties with their own friends. In the morning they are usually screaming to communicate each other. You can book shuttle service to the city for free and you will get a coconut on arrival. You can also book a share ride to Puerto Princesa and motorbikes. The breakfast is superb but I saw many times a big mouse running on the stoves. They will offer you boiled water with coffee - better if you do not drink if you do not want to stay in the bathroom for the whole day. The pool is not very clean, the sea water looks cleaner to swim. Unfortunately for my experience I got to know the trycyle service after 4 days of my stay and the coconut has been given on my wish after I saw someone else receiving it (which I have to say, was frustrating to see people threatened differently). If you love dogs this is the place for you, theres 6 of them and they are kinda asking for food to you when you are eating. This occures anywhere in El Nido. Overall was a nice stay. Please be aware this is not a resort but a guesthouse.
The resort offers air-conditioned rooms in a quieter location in el Nido, away from the hustle and bustle. The pool is beautifully laid out and offers a direct view of the sea. Breakfast is offered, but no lunch and no dinner. In addition, the operators of the accommodation offer a shuttle service to the city, as the city centre of el Nido is about 15 minutes walk away. Nevertheless, one has to be aware that the accommodation is one of the cheaper ones (with pool) and is a bit outdated. It is basically clean and tidy but simply a bit old and no longer up to date. The showers work well or badly depending on the time of day. But the staff is very cordial and helpful.
The family who runs the resort is just wonderful and very helpful. However for me that isn't enough to give more than two stars. When I booked the resort it didn't say that it was a 10-15 minute walk down a dirt road that a regular tuktuk won't go down. They do have one the hotel runs but when you don't have a phone and first arrive it is hard to contact them. We received an email after booking a non refundable room about this. Which I think is unacceptable and should be stated before booking. Once we got there the resort itself looks unfinished in the beginning part and then cluttered in the part close to the beach. Our room had a wonderful view and was by far the highlight of the resort. It was as close to the ocean as we could have gotten and the balcony was a huge perk! The room itself was quite big but the AC couldn't cool the whole room down and the washroom has more ants than I had ever seen in my life. The overall cleanliness of the room was just ok. Breakfast was wonderful! The couple things we enjoyed about the resort are not enough for us to want to come back. I believe if they fix the majority of these issues they will have a great place especially because the family is absolutely lovely. I wish them all the best for their business.
