I went for a day to el Nido cabins since it was right next to playa chiquita, a very cute beach. Hotel has no access to the beach but has a great nature inside.

A great tropical escape in playa chiqiuta run by nice Italian owner. We were looking for a large room to accommodate family of 5, near the beautiful beach of Punta Uva with the option of a swimming pool. Apart from a slight hot water problem (which was partly fixed on day 2) the place is very nice. Huge bonus was... More

I had posted a review about how bad the room condition was. The owner probably removed the post. Through booking.com and email contact with Paolo, i got some money back based on some 115$ per night rate. I don't have time to rewrite my bad experience. In summary, if el nido wants to be in business, they better fix what... More

Hi Jayani, thank you for getting in touch with us. We are sorry to hear you complaints. We just checked with our supervisor Gabriela about that. Apparently, after your complaints, the room was cleaned again and the sheets were changed. And when she asked you at breakfast the next day you said that everithing was fine.

I have been there with my family and it was incredible! Our bungalow was without A/C but we never needed it. The breakfast was very good, and the service was perfect. The garden was something very special... I think that I saw more tropical plants there than in all the places that we visited in the country. They grow organic... More

We stayed two nights and really enjoyed the hospitality. Rooms were open and clean. Nice restaurants nearby. What's not to love? Near by its a market where you can save some cash buying fresh fruts and vegitables. Managers were very friendly.

I really enjoyed staying at these cabins. They are large and airy and fit my family of 5 comfortably.
