Not the best place to stay in. Walls were thin, the pillows and towels had a smell, poor room lighting, and much more. You could find a better place with the same price range. We stayed here for there were no longer any available inns that suited our budget of more or less PHP4,000, when we tried to check online....

We stayed in Novie's Tourist Inn this February. I was unlucky to book it online hoping that it's mixed reviews were exagerrated. They were not. This is the worst place i stayed in for last ten years!! For the money I believe it's the worst in the world. They charge way too much for the basic accomodation. Aircon is theoretically...

The outside is nice, has a native feel but I would not recommend if staying more than two nights. There was a smell in our toilet that would not go away no matter how many times you flush. I even diluted soap in water then used it to flush down the smell but it didn't work. the walls are thin...

I believe this was a family run business. The rooms and facilities required a lot of attention. The staff was extremely nice but it could not compensate for the quality of our stay. The beds, pillows, towels and blankets were filthy and the rooms hardly had any furniture. There were bugs and holes everywhere.

I'm shocked at the poor reviews of this place. It's quite good value - 1/2 the price of the place stAyed across the road for a similar room (but it's not beach front) Rooms are clean, a but rustic - but it's a hut so that's to be expected. Unlike other reviews; I had working fan and air-con which (even...

We arrived at this hotel on our first night in El Nido and the staff were friendly, the huts were attractive. However sadly it all went downhill from there. So we went to sleep and it was raining so heavily, it took a while to get to sleep due to the fact that the huts walls were paper thin and...

Great place to stay situated in Corong Corong : better than el nido. Nice people and everything around. The owner "family" is very helpful and smiling. We had the room number 6 which is very confortable. The beach is so cloth to the hostels. You can rent scooter for 500p.

Where do I start..... For the price you pay here, you will find much better value in many other parts of El Nido. I would have much rather have paid 1000 pesos more to get something a lot nicer, or paid 1000 pesos less to get the same type of of accommodation elsewhere. Terrible Value. Nothing worked. Aircon never worked....

Pay attention that this hotel has policy that they may require you to make deposit to confirm booking in advance. Everything could be well if only they could accept deposit by PayPal, paying by credit card, etc. But no - they require bank transfer and only bank transfer. And what is the most amazing, they can lost your money! This...
