Is the first accommodation you see when walking out of the pier. They have simple rooms starting at 350 for the single and 450 for the double room. All the action of Cuyo happens in front of Nikki's or in the Bar&Karaoke a few doors from the pension. The hotel is located right in front of the beach and next... More

The site is acceptable. The staff is friendly. The single room is very very small and have a common bathroom, then the price is not very interesting. It is very close to the beach. For backpackers and short or very short stays.

Nice small place with a local home feeling. You are definitely in a good place. Very well situated, right on the beach, just a few meters from kite area. Overall facility is standard, simple and clean but with all the comfort. Owner and staff are very accommodating, always nice and helpful especially Nikki. They also have a small resto inside...

Nikkis Pension is one of the first accomodations you see when you arrive in Cuyo. Even it is the most closest option you better walk a few meters more and check in at another place (Feroland, Villa Gange, ...). As the pension is located directly on the beach front the location is the only positive thing I can write about.... More

If you would like to explore Cuyo given the luxury of time, this is the only place i can recommend to you. Cuyo is an isolated island in the Sulu sea so there are only few accommodations available. Nikki's is affordable, has its own fast food beside the resort, nearest to the port, owner is accommodating, near also to market,... More

There are much better choices for accommodation on the island. The rooms near the karaoke bar are a joke, even if you sleep with earplugs... food is ok but after a couple of meals it is getting boring. The staff is really really friendly but we didn't like the owner. He seems greedy and unfriendly. As someone wrote below he... More

The family is extremely hospitable and helpful. Had great time. Rooms start at 200php and totally worth it. The karaoke bar is great with many locals coming to enjoy beer and pool table. Close to public market where you can get fresh fish and fruits. I would most defiantly recommend!

There are differing viewpoints drawbacks and advantages to the whole Island in general. But to be fair to the pension, nothing I'v seen from the other reviews gives accurate justice from the sense of an aware and expecting traveler. The people at the pension are beyond friendly. When it comes to accommodating your needs they go out of the way... More
