The island front has a budget hotel called leonides. As the price was very low, I did not mind the thin walls which let through every sound, the shower with extremely low water pressure, or the worn down matress and clamboo with holes. However, what is not acceptable are the rats. There was poop all over my room, they were...

We booked via Agoda for 7 nights as rest of El Nido appeared fully booked. It was expensive about £60 GBP per night and it was just awful! Dark damp rooms that didn't have a good smell, brown cold water from the shower and terrible wifi. Also communal areas are cramped and breakfast too crowded. Buffet breakfast also cold and...

Had the best time at Islandfront. I prefer being the 50p ride way from El Nido center on the quieter beach of Corong. It is a lovely place to get up early and walk with the mixture of local families, working boat operators and small hotels like this. You also get great sunsets here whereas El NIdo properties are hidden...

Well, before booking here, we read all the reviews on here warning us off. However we chose to give it a chance (mainly because the whole of El Nido seemed to be fully booked!) We unfortunately were not pleasantly surprised. All the stories of rats and bed bugs came true. We stayed in two rooms in the island front 2....

First of all, I'm an easy going sort of traveler, an ex-pat from the Philippines, and as such, this beach front property is just basically local at its best; nothing fancy but the bare essentials: a working air conditioning unit, a clean, comfortable bed, clean bed sheets, and the bathroom, the bare minimum that means you have to bring your...

We stayed at the Islandfront Cottages for 4 nights, that we booked in advance at Agoda.com. the booking was made to what they call Yolindas Tourist Inn which is a another room area in their premises. We booked a garden-view cottage. Calling it Garden view is practically a fraudulent. The view is a wall of an uncompleted builduing. All day...

We were a group of friends and we had a booking done by a local agency. Got there and found out we did not have all the rooms booked. It took us quite some time before we could get at least part of the rooms. The location seemed to be ok and i had a look at the rooms next...

My friend and I are currently travelling the Philippines and left Island Front Cottages on Wednesday after staying for 3 nights. The cottages are cute and have everything you need. The shower is hot, you have toiletries and towels provided. The staff were really helpful on check in and throughout our time here. The breakfast can be chosen from a...

We took company visiting from Canada in December. The rooms were cute, but not very soundproof. We were glad to have a fan, because the a/c wasn't very strong. From the patio, the view and sounds from the sea were just awesome. Amazing sunsets! The hotel staff arranged for our island hopping tour, which was great. The hotel restaurant was...

Do yourself a favor and stay away from this hostel if you want to enjoy in El Nido. My friends and I paid for rooms with hot water, and we barely even had cold water. We ask the staff a few times (too much times!!!) to fix the problem and they let us to take a shower in another room,...
