We took company visiting from Canada in December. The rooms were cute, but not very soundproof. We were glad to have a fan, because the a/c wasn't very strong. From the patio, the view and sounds from the sea were just awesome. Amazing sunsets! The hotel staff arranged for our island hopping tour, which was great. The hotel restaurant was...

Do yourself a favor and stay away from this hostel if you want to enjoy in El Nido. My friends and I paid for rooms with hot water, and we barely even had cold water. We ask the staff a few times (too much times!!!) to fix the problem and they let us to take a shower in another room,...

Stayed here for 3 nights - booked an A/C sea view room on Agoda.com - and shared this room with a rat for 3 nights. Lovely. However, other than said rat, it was alright. Pros: - nice location, just outside of town (20/30min walk) - easy to get a trike in - Corong Corong is far more attractive to stay...

Island Front is a good example of a simple yet perfect accommodation specially in an Awesome place like El Nido. We made the right choice to book them for our first attempt to discover this beautiful Island paradise. The basics are provided for every accommodation. Nothing too fancy which is very refreshing for me. We felt like we were stranded...

Towels and bath soap are provided, but the towels smells musty (needs fabric...

drawbacks: soundproof is terrible (bamboo net wall to separe rooms!), design of room are old and atmosphere is dark, hotel maintenance should be improved, many mosquitos, rat was in my room every night, no wifi in room (and very bad is main area), food is overpriced with a quality below average. Good point: if you choose the water front rooms,...

We didn't stay here and I wish we had. The food was ok but a bit pricey so eat in El Nido - Angels Wish on the beach is the best. This is a great location as it's a quiet beach with stunning views. The rooms looked lovely and it's a great place to chill in.
