we arrived later in the evening coming from the bus from puerto princessa, and were welcomed warmly into a karaoke night the owners and some of the guests were having! we were shown to our villa, which is a bamboo hut with a entrance room comfortable for sitting that has a table, a bed section with a comfortable clean bed and mosquito net as it is not fully sealed to the outside, and a bathroom with a sink shower and well working flush toilet. the shower is cold water only but i think you’ll find this common in the philippines. there is no AC, but there is a fan with kept us nice and cool. this is not a fancy schmancy hotel, but it is clean, cozy, unique, homey, and the service is out of this world! free breakfast every morning, the owners and staff will help you out with whatever you need. because it is a bit far out of town-they can help you rent a scooter (totally worth it it makes everything on the island accessible) or call you a tricycle! for the price, i believe there’s no better place to stay in el nido. we love and miss our lil villa already and would totally stay again!
