Spent two days at Rosanna's, had a first floor room (nr 10) which was small but really clean, and the view... the way on its own worth the trip! The staff was very friendly and helpful, the breakfast was nice, the only thing i would not recommend is the island hopping tour, I would go through the agency Tao instead...

We already stayed in this resort, twice. Far away from the noisy party music but a few minutes away from beachfront restaurants. The staff are very helpful, polite and accommodating. The price is cheap, being a beachfront property but if you're travelling in a tight budget, I suggest to look for hotels in the town with lower rates. During our...

Amazing views, if you are going to stay here, I would recommend a ground level room with a beach view. Breathtaking! Perfect place for a sunset. Not too noisy, very close to restaurant, bars, water activities. Wifi is only in lobby, and the food is dodo, but lots of other places to choose from. This was one of our favourite...

Thank you for your positive reviews, Ma'am Valentine, and also for the not so positive. Sorry for not having a hot shower in your room for 3 days. Our hot showers in the new building are solar powered, so maybe it rained on your stay here in El Nido. We also apologise for the noisy rooms. Thank you for staying...

For El Nido this place has hell of a view of the sea right from the balcony. Price was ok and the staff was helpful. But... during the last night we found out that there were a lot of bed bugs in our bed, that bit both of us terribly.

Very good location at the end of the beach, it is a more quiet location, but close to centre, very nice staff! They served breakfast on the balcony of our room, this was really nice with the great view on the bay of el nido. We didn't liked the mattress! It is covered with something like plastic, not very cosy!...

We stayed here for 3 days. After we had a look at several other places in El Nido we decided for Rosanna's. The sea view rooms are a recommendation, esp. as they are only 10 Euros more than a non-Sea-view room. It is one of the few hotels in El Nido that combine a stunning view over the sea with...

Hotel is basic but comfortable. We stayed in a beachfront room which was good as had lovely sunset views. The room was quite small but had everything you needed. The staff were friendly. If you are after a beachfront hotel at a reasonable price, then this is perfect

El Nido experience won't be complete without the sun's rays reaching through your skin or retiring the day watching the sunset by the shores. You get to experience this at Rosanna's pension, especially if you make an early booking.
