The local dive center recommend it, in the middle of El nido, close to the dive center and 1 street to the beach. The hotel its simple and cheap, clean all that we want for that price, dont look for a fancy room for a couple holidays. The worst its the internet conexion, but in the area isnt good.. so......

For a hotel who mostly cater to backpackers, one would think this hotel would have a functioning wifi. I can get pass the fact that the wifi is ONLY available around the lobby but invest in a strong wifi network. We couldn't even check the status of our flight on the internet. Wifi at this hotel is unusable. This is...

After reading some questionable reviews we weren't sure what to expect from Hotel Garnet. We are on a backpackers budget and almost everything in El Nido was booked when we were going. Upon arrival at Hotel Garnet we were pleasantly surprised. My friend and I split the cost of a room and we were happy to find our room had...

Great thing about Garnet is that it is on the Main Street in El Nido where all the restaurants are. Luckily the street that it is on is closed from 5:30pm - 5:30am, so you're able to walk around in the evenings and enjoy without having to worry about Traffic. First look, you may think it's a subpar hotel but...

Great location, right in the centre of el nido. The hotel smells like damp, our room was a deluxe but had no window( room 8). Very noisy, our room was right next to a lounge area so there was a lot of noise early each morning which was annoying. The room didn't have a fridge. Wifi connection is poor (but...

The linens were grayish due to poor laundering and overuse.. There was no water in the bathroom. The shower head had no hanger. There was no face mirror anywhere in the room. The coffee corner was filthy. My family was very disappointed that we just packed up and left to check ib to another hotel even if I had already...

The hotel is overpriced and run down. We payed 3400 peso per night but it wasn't even worth the half. The bathroom was so bad that you had to think twice if its really necessary to take a shower. There was no toilet paper in the cr. You have to ask for it at the reception. Lucky for you if...

This wasn't our first choice but everything else was fully booked. The air conditioning in our room was weak but the rooms were of a decent size. Bed was comfortable. You get free tea/ coffee in the communal area. Best thing about this place was the location. The hotel is literally less than 5 mins to the beach front. You...

Nice hotel nothing special but good value for money, stayed there 5 nights and was located in the middle of el nido everything is within walking distance and quiet in the night, rooms were clean and with aircon, no hot shower however which would have been nice after a long day diving.
