Went out of their way to help!!
This place was wonderful. We received the best of service and assistance in a very stressful time. We got to El Nido the day before the airportsAnd land travel closed for a month. Was in a panic to figure out how to extend our travel visas and the owner went above and beyond to try and assist us. We where only there 17 hours when the owner advised us to return to Puerto Princessa as there was a concern that they would run out of supplies. Thank you so much for your assistance. We would come back to this hotel in a heart beat. Stay safe.

Fair 4.0
Doesn't need to be overpriced does it?
The room condition was a closet with a shoe box bathroom. No place for clothes, live out of suitcase, baddddd for that much pesos. Wayyyýyyyy overpriced. Staff real good.

Poor 2.0
Room occupied by somebody else and relocated
When I arrived at the reception at 15:00 my room had been given to somebody else, and they didn't have any other room available. I ended up relocated to the guesthouse next door, which was not what I had paid for.

reasonable value...get what you pay for.
This is a budget based accommodation, and as such you get what you pay for. It is an adequate room, and shower with air conditioning. I did find for two people it was somewhat compact !! The shower does stand over the toilet bathroom. But as I say the price you pay reflects this. The staff are very helpful and friendly, and it is in a good location for everything in El Nido

Great Staff Great Value
Very clean comfortable stay, great value but above all the staff were very friendly and helpful, rooms were cleaned everyday. Each afternoon we would receive a warm welcome with tea / coffee and Banana Q, The Hotel is situated close to the town ideal for walking directly to the boat trips and restaurants.

Great budget hotel in perfect location
Great budget hotel in perfect location in the centre of el nido town. Quiet and clean rooms with very helpful staff. Wifi was good and reliable. Only downside was the tiny bathroom with shower over the toilet. But for the price, a decent hotel.
