Arrived at 11pm after a 5-hour drive from Puerto Princesca only to be shown into a dim and dirty room. Ants crawling everywhere even in the shower and beds. Bedsheets had many stains. Couldn't sleep well before the island hopping tour as we heard knocking on the door only to find the corridor empty. Nightmares of two people jumping on... More

The only good thing I have to say about this place was the location was ok and we had an ocean view room and the wifi worked. This hotel is old, rundown, dirty with a horrible moldy bathroom. The staff had no idea what they were doing and or saying. They told us that they had there own Private shuttle... More

I stayed here for 2 nights I believe around April 2015. I was staying at Rico's Cottages which I liked but since El Nido didn't really have an ATM, I was running low on cash. This place accepts credit cards but they charge a fee. I'm not sure how much it was but I think around 6 to 10%? Anyway,... More

Stayed here throughout the 4 nights here at El Nido with my family (parents and 3 siblings). We booked a deluxe room for my parents and a deluxe family room for the 4 of us. However the family room was too tiny for the 4 of us (basically a deluxe room with extra beds) so we decided to split into... More

Our relatives made the reservation in this hotel. I was expecting of a clean but cozy budget hotel yet I was disappointed. I was looking forward to sleep and rest in a clean and cozy room after a long land trip from Puerto Princesa. Ugh, I have to say, I wasn't able to sleep in 3 nights that I've stayed... More

Truly the WORSE hotel that we have ever stayed at. Upon check in (and after such a long commute from Puerto Princesa!) we had to wait such a long time for the front desk to let us into our room. We had all the documents that we needed to prove that we had booked with a travel agent but because... More

When we stayed at this hotel they were busy renovating it, which can be a reason why we didn't really liked it. The rooms were new but they still seemed old somehow. The wifi only worked at the reception but it is like that everywhere in El Nido. The bed was hard and the bathroom a bit dirty. But it... More

Stayed here last May 2012, booked through Agoda. Price is ok. Location is perfect. Service - uhm, not really. No service at all, it's like they don't care much as long as you pay.
