Just OK

The people working there are really nice and friendly. Breakfast is just fine, place is quiet.
The place is over priced for what it is: a messy and dirty garden. The huts are clean, but there were flees in one of our beds.. The local people who run it are very very kind and helpful though. I hope you guys will make the place better... It's hot potential.

Best view in Palawan! Authentic Filipino stay

Location, Good Service, Serenity/Calmness
Kalinga offers an authentic Filipino accommodation in cottages/bungalows with the most amazing views of El Nido's many islands. The location is excellent - only about 5 minutes (by tricycle, which the resort offers a complimentary tricycle service) or 10 minutes (walking) from the center of town. Because it's away from the bustle of the awl Nido center, it's very calm, relaxing, and quiet throughout the day and night. Breakfast is included and very good for the price of the resort. Lots of food options nearby, especially Antonio's down the street. There's a local canteen across the road with snacks, drinks, and essentials (shampoo, soap, bug repellent, etc). The service was great... Alma was a great help with scheduling tours, getting bottled water, getting a tricycle, etc. Everyone at the resort, staff and fellow resort patrons, were very friendly. Setting up island hopping tours was very simple because the resort has its own tour company and boat. So you simply pick the tour you want, and get into the boat several feet away. Overall, it was an excellent stay for the price that I paid. You have to keep in mind that this resort offers authentic accommodations. Yes, there are dogs roaming around (but we're in the Philippines and anywhere you go, there will be roaming dogs). They're friendly. Sometimes the power will go out but it's across the neighborhood and town, not just the resort (again, were in the Philippines). I highly recommend this resort and I will be sure to go back and stay there the next time I'm in Palawan. Thank you for the amazing stay and experience Kalinga!
