This is the best place to stay in this area of Costa Rica. The cabinas are little houses fully equipped around the beautiful pool. The managers, are a young couple of Italians, Paolo and Vittoria and their daughter Nina, are amazing, the service was excellent, they helped us with all our necessities, they make you feel at home. I recommend...

My family and I stayed at El Nido taking advantage of a great deal we got on the cabin, but even at regular prices we can tell you that the place is great, quite, clean, secure, and owners go out of their way to make sure they personally meet and know all tenants and make you feel like you are...

El Nido brands itself as affordable luxury, that is certainly true if you are staying in one of the four cabinas. Not if you are staying in the "suite". As all the cabinas were booked, i found myself in the slightly cheaper "suite" room. A world of a difference from the cabinas! I visited the cabinas where my friends were...

We stayed a couple of nights in the Caribbean Coast in mid July and were recommended to stay in El Nido. We were so happy with all the hospitality offered by our host Paolo and Vittoria that we would not think twice about returning. The rooms are very clean and comfortable and the decorations are in good taste. The beach...
