Very beautiful place with views to die for.
Peaceful location, beautiful views, excellent snorkelling
We stayed in the garden cottage which was smaller than I expected but enough for 4 people. No air conditioning in the room but we knew about it when booking and it was absolutely fine. Location is excellent and u wake up in the most beautiful part of elnido with amazing scenery and beautiful sunsets. Staff very friendly and helpful but the only problem we had it was waiting time after we ordered food. Over all I would stay there again.

it's ordinary cottages, not a hotel.
The sunset view is awesome
We arrived past 8:00 pm. Walked through a dark narrow trail and seashore to reach the area. The staff are nice. But The owners never even greeted us. Not a hi, hello or good evening, even when we were all in the dining area. But they were nice and accommodating to their foreigner guests. Maybe because we are just ordinary Filipinos. Love the sound of the birds in the morning. Breakfast is good! Unfortunately, the islands tour we had with them was a disaster. We already booked with a different company for our tour, but their tour guy said it is Tourism policy that guests should book their tours with the hotel they are staying. I told my agent about it and they started arguing over the phone. So to avoid anymore disputes, I cancelled the tour I booked and had this Las Cabsnas tour guide instead. Mew took tour C. But it wasn't worth it. We have to leave one hour and a half late. We've seen two islands so far when the motor boat's propeller broke. The guy's cell phone is not working. Good thing we have one cp in roaming. He was able to call for help. But when another guy came, the part he brought a wrong one. So our guide left us and to go buy the right part. It took about 2.5 hours before he arrived and about thirty minutes before the boat was fixed. The food was mediocre. He even took us to a beach where there's hundreds if not thousands of jellyfish. Good thing I went into the water before my kids did so I'm the only one who got stung...gee! It hurts! We did not finish our stay. We checked out after two nights. There's nothing more interesting to do. This place is good for those who wants a quiet place to stay and enjoys watching the sun set (no sunrise). And by the way, it is okay to book island tours with other companies or independent tour guides. The price per night is totally NOT worth it. Will definitely try other resorts with better amenities next time! Thanks to your nice staff though! 😉

Ultimate escape from reality!!!
1. Staff 2. Location 3. Sunset
It was perfect in everything! The location, the staff, the owner, the bungalows...everything!!! Deffinetly coming back! We've visited a lot of other beach resorts in southeast Asia, but this was by far the best we've ever been!!!

Great location but not a "resort"
Location is definitely the main advantage of the hotel: amazing view and quiet beach. But the rest kinda let you down.
Like any other location in El Nido, there is no electrify after 10pm or hot water. When we arrived, the staff proposed to leave on our doorstep a bucket of hot water every morning. We found that to be a nice alternative but they actually delivered only once. Same time they actually did room cleaning (one time over a 5 days stay).
Breakfast is very limited. You can choose between 4 small dishes (continental breakfast - no Filipino) and have a cup or coffee or tee. Unfortunately, if you drink neither coffee nor tee, no way to have a juice instead.
Finally, you can book island hopping tours through the hotel. But as we did one the day before and therefore already had paid the governmental taxes, we asked for the taxes fees to be removed from their price - which they refused.

Peaceful and quiet place on Corong Beach
Location, Great Owners , Sunsets
The Hotel situates in fantastic tranquilly place. The sunsets are stunning. The food is simple but tasty.
The Garden in front of the Hotel with picturesque palm-trees makes it one grade higher than the other hotels in this beach.
The Hotel itself needs renovation: Furniture is broken, mirrors hanging tilted in rusty nail , shower is difficult to adjust. Hot water brought in the thermos on demand. Electricity is 4 hours (sometimes less) a day from 6 to 10pm.
No light evening/night time (you need to bring your flash light.
1.Very friendly and intelligent owners. Staff is tough but ready to negotiate.
2.Few bars and restaurants on Corong Beach.
3.The party for our 3-year-old daughter was arranged with warm-heart. Cake and sweets paid by Hotel. Thank you!
4.Sunsets! Relax in the beach! Unforgettable.
5.Good fast internet (but only 4 hours a day)
6. Staff speaks good English.
7. The food... simple but... some dishes are really delicious (fish and chicken). Real dripping coffee and tea.
1. Beach is good however sea is shallow and rocky (you can't swim here). You need to go approx. 400m to a Beach Shackle Bar where you can rest and swim.
2. Breakfast is limited choice (majorly pancakes). We had to negotiate eggs and fish with add. price.
3. No A/C, very noisy fan which does not ventilate room properly. Had to sleep with open doors. Therefore, were bitten by mosquitos.
4. The furniture (closets and shelves) are devastated. Needs to renovate badly.
Despite all cons - this place is 110% worth to visit. Nature, islands, El Nido City, Unspeakable boat tours, Waterfalls and... colour of the sea!!!

Location is superb. Don't expect to swim so much.
The view, the accommodation and the location being away from it all.
The view is superb... totally El Nido. What disappointed me is the fact that the shore is not "swimmable" as it is rocky and goes on for about a mile from the shore.
But above all, if you need to be away from it all and be in paradise on a good enough budget...this is the place.
