We stayed at the resort for four nights. Such a good stay, it is a short scooter ride to El Nido town (15 mins) and with hiring a scooter from the resort (700p) it gives you easy access to get around El Nido to visit other beaches or bars. The service was great and the staff make sure you are...

I stayed here recently with my wife and a couple of friends. Rooms - ok rooms. Need a bit of updating as showers not great for women who may want to wash their hair as pressure not great. There are no telephones in the rooms and so contacting others rooms or reception is not possible. Wifi which is only available...

Pros: - Staff is very helpful, will assist you in any way they can to make your El Nido vacation more convenient - Good food - Place is beautiful and cozy - Rooms are well kept and clean Cons: - Wifi is only available in the dining hall (though you might be able to catch it in the nearer rooms)

First of all, I highly recommend you fly in directly to El Nido (rather than taking the long drive from Puerto Princesa) and arranging transfers with the hotel. The hotel is really nice and peaceful, with a fairly private beach. It is away from the hubbub of the main El Nido area which means it is immensely more relaxing. You...

We loved this hotel! The staff are great- so helpful and friendly! We especially loved Joey, the bartender/Jack of all trades. The hotel is slightly removed from downtown- but we actually really enjoyed the 15-20 minute trike ride through the island. We felt lucky to be removed from the busier downtown area- the escape to the hotel really felt like...

Although this place is about 20 minutes away from town, the view leaves you breathless and we were very happy with the service. Make you you take a walk along the beach line in the morning and take a dip at the pool at sun set. All island hopping tours are available and very easy to book with the front...

The resort was very quiet and safe. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Location is far from El Nido town, at least 15 min tricycle ride. Fare is P200 per way, so incorporate this in your budget. The room is a bit old and the restroom needs rehabilitation. Wi-fi is free but available only in the lobby. If you...

We took Forest room. It was with ocean and pool view. I know that some of the Forest rooms are deeper in the Forest so maybe ask about room close to the pool. The room is spacious, clean, with Tv and shower with warm water. The localization is about 20 minutes by tricycle from El Nido and costs 200 pesos...

This place is amazing. For the price and location, it was one of the best deals ever. This is quite far from the town proper, but it has a great appeal since it would be easy to go to town via tricycle/van, but you have that much needed peace and quiet. They have a pool and a nice beach so...

A more modestly priced resort that still offers everything one needs. Restaurant and a full breakfast buffet, nice pool, rooms that are 30 meter from water and great view. The service was the best we had in this trip. Jayar is your guy for everything.
