Although I loved the staff (they really try and are super friendly) and it's located right on the beach.. unfortunately the place needs some serious improvement. Bugs, rats, poor cleanliness, sewer smell :( Roosters and dogs making noise almost at every hour.. booked 5 nights, had to leave after 3.. Slow laundry service. Frequent power outages. Again heartbreaking because the...

Good pick if you have your own car you can bring with to and from the town. Good for families and large group. Enough of you're not looking for luxurious stay. Working amenities and nice food. If you are a simple traveler, this might be for you. But if you are the party goer kind which stays up till wee...

If you like a room running alive with rats with the added displeasure of a mosquito nursery then Island Front Cottages will be right up your drain pipe. I've never seen so many Mosquito's in a room without a mosquito net but it was later explained that the Mosquito net had been removed to prevent rats getting trapped inside whilst...

We've stayed at Island Front for 3 days and I have a very mixed feelings about this place. 1) Price - our daily rate was only $40 a night for a deluxe cottage with sea view. It's a great price. You won't find many places with the view in El Nido for $40. 2) Our cottage was located right by...

When we first arrived, we didn't know what to expect. Definitely not the type of resort we normally stays at. This place exceeded our expectations. The rooms were okay for the nightly price you pay for. It was clean and comfy. The staff were very very nice and very attentive with our needs. One of the night, our AC system...

Myself and many were ill with food poisoning. Going vegetarian/vegan in El nido for your whole time in El Nido would be a wise thing to do. Do not drink any water from this hotel unless its been treated or its bottled. The views are stunning, the room does the job, and the people and staff are so nice. I...

I stayed in a fanroom and I liked the simplicity and tropical-feel of it. The bed has a hanging mosquito drapes for protection. The walls and floors are made of bamboos which makes the room airy though the bathroom is concrete and tiled. The food at the restaurant are great though a bit pricey. The bar is open as long...
