Situated right on the beach a couple steps walk to the ocean was the perfect location for beautiful views.

Lovely staff very helpful and they bring complimentary breakfast and coffee. We were 4 female friends staying in...

I think they have friends making the good rewievs, because most of the desciption is far from the truth. Pros: from 3 huts you have a nice beach view. The 2 beachfront huts are nice and airy. Cons: the place is really dirty. We had prepaid and had to stay for 4 days, and we did not see any cleaning....

I was GRANDPAcking in El Nido for 10 nights. I quickly moved out of the El Taraw Inn (which I do not recommend) after just 1 night. I scoured the streets and, finally, booked into the Tandikan Beach Cottages for 8 nights at PHP1000 / night including breakfast. Getting a reasonable breakfast included in your hotel price is important. The...

It looks like their business model is to make money on people's cancellations, I read some negative comments but since there weren't many choices en El Nido, I decided to book it through Airbnb. I couldn't find the place, no response from the host, and when found it there was no reservation under my name and no room that I...

Booked the beachfront cottage in November and it was taken by others when we arrived and the owner couldn't tell us when they were leaving. Stayed one night then left. Luckily we moved to the cottages next door and they were so different. As if they wanted and were grateful for our business.

We went here, because of the recommendation in the lonely planet. When we arrived a young arrogant boy told us they had rooms with aircon and rooms with a fan available. He showed us a room and then he said that room was the only one available.... It was a room with aircon and costed 1300 pesos. We took it,...

Normally I'm okay with facilities that are on the lower end of the luxury scale, I'm pretty happy with simple. This place should be cheaper for what they offer, I came purely to dive and island hop around el nido. I arrived and they offered me a room with a great balcony view, great. I get in my room and...

The staff were nice here and the location is right on the beach. We were lucky and got a beach facing room with porch. The room was tiny and the bathroom pretty basic. Breakfast was included but wasn't that nice. Not worth the price so opt elsewhere and don't stay in El Nido if you want quiet - head to...

Location is better than the others. All the things you needed are within the area. The beach front is of great view which you can immediately appreciate the beauty of El Nido. The staff are accommodating to your needs.
