To be honest, the pictures make the place look way much better (and bigger?) than it is in person. It's no one's fault really, but it's based off my personal experience. I requested the cottage that had the best view from the balcony of the ocean which WOULD have been the best view... if the greenery was trimmed down a bit so I could even see the ocean. I understand it's called "Treetops" but the pictures here must have been taken when the trees were a bit smaller. So I knocked off a star for the lack of romance, but at least we could walk to the shore from the BnB for personal photos (can't swim there).

Amenities and bathroom were fine. Bathroom was clean and toilet flushed. Shower was warm when needed. However, I would like to address that the blinds covering all the windows do not completely give you privacy. A peeper could easily peer through (bathroom and bedroom).
Also I guess these pictures were taken in the other cottage because when I was there last month, only 1 light in the room could be on at a time (couldn't turn on both lights). Of course I could have addressed this to the host whenever I saw her......
Take note that these cottages are not completely sealed from the outside. There are many holes/gaps in which creepy crawlers, mosquitoes, and ants will come in and snuggle with you in bed.

Lastly (sorry for the long review), along with being unable to get in contact with the host, the WiFi was DOWN. The entire time! I would have been a happy camper if I at least had a way to contact family/transportation! Fortunately I had loaded up on minutes... I tried contacting the host via the number on their AirBnB to no avail (left a text also, but no response?). We were out most of the time so I never saw the host in person - even on the day we checked out.

Room Tip: Bring long-lasting repellent! Spray under the door also or else ants will come in and harass your ba...

The best staff and since there were only 3 cottages its private and they attend to what you need immediately. They also served us for free New Year's Eve. We came 2013 for our HoneyMoon. I work for the Hospitality Industry, Treetops is affordable yet its like a villa service of any 5 star Hotel Resort. Thank you so much.

Room Tip: all rooms are good

El Nido town can be really cramped, with structures of various sizes and shapes, with people, and with the ubiquitous tricycles. But a little yonder, just before the beautiful Marimegmeg beach, is a place called Corong-Corong where the atmosphere is more laid back and with a lot of breathing space. Here, nestled amidst a bunch of trees and beautiful ornamental plants is Treetops. It has only two huts, practically situated among the treetops with a spectacular view of the sea. The huts, made of native materials, are tastefully designed and are well- maintained and kept pristinely clean by Rorie Dulay-Sales, who is now looking after the place. Rorie, with Pipoy's able assistance, pays particular attention to the minutest details like putting flowers on the newly-made bed and towels shaped into fabulous creatures like swans and dogs! Breakfast is well-prepared and tasty with unlimited freshly brewed coffee. During breakfast or at sunset, you can relish the breath-taking view and immerse in the tranquility the place offers. Rorie is generous is many ways, like making you move around the kitchen as if it's your own. If you like whipping up your own meal (lunch or dinner), being in Treetops is definitely a big plus! Early in the morning, pick out some fresh catch from the market (it's approximately 1.5km jog or leisurely walk from Treetops) and Rorie will be quite happy to offer you herbs and spices from her pantry that you might require for your cooking.

Being in Treetops is just like being in your own place. It's very private and quiet, save for the crowing of the roosters and the chirping of the birds among the trees.

A word of caution, there's no air conditioning at Treetops. Midday can get hot but mornings are cool and evenings are balmy. Anyway, you'll end up being out in the sea or at the beach during the day, so this should not bother you too much.

At Treetops, embrace nature and the beauty it offers. The serenity of the place will certainly calm one's spirit. Indeed, a tranquil paradise.

Had a very relaxing 3 nights at Treetops. A little out of town, and not to its detriment.
Only 60 pesos for a tricycle into El Nido. The girl, whose name escapes me, that helped us during our stay was really lovely, the rooms, whilst simple and sparse, were quite pretty and the way the rooms are made up each day is flawless.
We were helped with any and all bookings and questions which was great.
I found it good value for money also.
