Avis from Australia
Standard Twin - Air Conditioning
Stayed 3 nights in May 2017
Location is close to main road and beach where most tours leave from. The town has unreliable power source, which does effect air conditioner, wifi etc. The place often runs on generators. The room is small, difficult to place our luggage done for 2 people and have space to walk. The facility is clean, our rooms were clean and there is a balcony with facilities to make tea on and chairs to sit on. Staff were friendly, they were always present at the desk. They even lock it up at night which made us feel safe as well.

Filthy, overpriced and smelly ”
Unbelievably expensive, unbelievably dirty, shower and toilet were the same thing, bed a bit of wood with cloth on it, clothes smelt awful when we checked out just from being in the room. Staff were ok, location not too bad although crowing roosters and barking dogs kept us awake most nights. Only book, if like us, you have no other options.

Great find, excellent rooms and lovely backdrop”
We were really pleased with this place. It seemed a bit of an unknown as the photos online were slightly hit and miss. However we were pleasantly surprised with the wooden building which had loads of character and was really nicely presented. Both rooms were lovely and had air con and fan. Nice location to walk into the town easily without being on the crowded main strip.

Great place to stay!”
Really pleased with our stay at Balay Paragua! The room was small, but adequate as most of our time was spent out on the beaches. (Less than 5 minutes walk to the shoreline where most tours depart from) The staff was above and beyond accommodating and even allowed us to store luggage and use a vacant room to rinse and change AFTER our checkout. Our only complaints, although minor, are that the toilet had difficulty flushing completely sometimes and shower drained fairly slowly. Otherwise, everything else was perfect. Balay Paragua helped make our time in El Nido amazing!

A couple days in El Nido”
Located in the middle of El Nido this place is a typical el nido standard which means nothing special at all but it's OK. Very nice and friendly staff.

Avoid this place!”
I would suggest you avoid the headaches and book one of the other many more suitable places. Unless your idea of a great vacation includes: arguing about why what you booked is different from what you got, hearing all sorts of irrelevant excuses, having to spend time on the unreliable phone/internet with Agoda searching for a solution, having to request hotel staff to do their job and clean up, listening to all the loud noises El Nido has to offer, and having to pay for all these delightful experiences. Pros: - Relatively close walk to main streets. - Hot water. - Air Conditioning. Cons: - Poorly managed - On arrival we were told they were fully booked and didn't have a room for us the first night and were sending us to another location (Vyncka Isabel Pension, which is better than here). There was no notification ahead of time. The owner provided the excuse was because someone booked at the same time via another site and took their remaining room. - Lots of noise - The windows are actually shutters so sound travels through them easily (Compared to a normal pane of glass). This is especially bad when some loud speaker comes on at 5am on Sunday morning. As a result, if you are a light sleeper, you won't be getting much sleep. - Wrong Room Type - When the staff said we had to relocate the room type was wrong. I booked a double bed but was provided two single beds and two single bed sheets. The beds have a wood frame so pushing them together doesn't make it a double bed. Instead you are left with an uncomfortable illogical solution... Again, there was no notification that our room type wasn't available. We had to go to the room and find out for ourselves. Lack of House Keeping - You will need to specifically request house keeping or nothing is done. Uncleanliness - In my opinion the room was run down and dirty. I just came from sleeping in a tent for 2 nights and still considered this to be dirty :) Irresponsible Owner - The owner wasn't helpful

Great location and staff. 5 mins away from the beach. Our room was clean. Aircon worked well.”
We stayed at Room#3 Cons / Notes: No separate space / no divider for the shower. No TV - we were ok with this No wifi. Mobile data (globe) was working but signal was weak. Pros: - Great location. It's in the town proper. 5 mins away from everything-nice beach, port for tours, restaurants, bakery - Dianne, Glaydel, and Mariafe were all very accommodating and friendly. They also helped us with scooter rental and van transfer; and their rates offered were cheaper, and we didnt encounter issues - Room was clean. Aircon worked well. - No loss of electricity. Shower worked OK with heater. They also have a bidet - Free coffee in the morning and afternoon. - They have laundry service 80pesos/kilo

Amazing accommodation. The staff were so helpful and provided everything we needed with a smile and great sense of politeness. The rooms are a little small but super clean and you're never in them anyways. Location is great: 5-10min walk from pretty well everything in town. I would definitely recommend staying here. Someone is always at the front 24hrs so the security is perfect. You won't be disappointed.

Okay stay.”
The room was small, smelled funny because there's no window. No cabinet, no trashcan in the room, although there is one in the toilet. We stayed for 2 nights and during the first night there was power outage, not sure how long the power was down but it was so hot in the room --- We were tooooo tired to care about the power outage and just fell asleep. Power was back when we woke up. Location is convenient, very near restaurants and beach. Nonetheless good deal for the price.
