Not really good hotel”
This hotel nearly night market and beach but hotel's facilities is bad. Air conditioner doesn't work well. Don't have anything in bath room except toilet tissue. They didn't clean my room in three days at there.
The Hotel is under construction! ”
too dusty and noisy! we booked & paid for 2 nights, but we've stayed only 1 night, could not handle the noise of construction in the day and the noise from the fighting of guests who stay next to our room at the night.
Cost-effective hotel。With a family of five people, the room is huge compared with other hotels in the same price range。The waiter is very good，I forgot to book it for two days ，but the waiter helped reserve it. Thank you very much ，and hot showers（Many hotels in EI Nido don't have hot water）The beach is across from the hotel，there is also paid laundry service。I will book this hotel next time。
Great venue with staff going above and beyond”
We had a fantastic stay at the big creek mansion and extended our stay twice while there. El Nido is expensive compared to the rest of Philippines but this place provides a great value. The location is fantastic, quiet spot right next to the town. 5 minute walk anywhere but you don't have to worry about street noise. The staff were amazing! Absolutely welcoming and always happy to help. They even offered things they thought we might need that we didn't even ask for. We're looking forward to coming back here!
Great staff and location”
Second time in el nido what a great place. The hotel is in renovation but you dont really get all the dust and noise that come with it. Location is top, more quiet then staying lets say near the puka bar and at 3 minutes walk from the main street its hard to beat. Rooms are a bit old and dated but its still clean and the staff is great. The free breakfast is very good.
The location was good , hotel was clean, you can't really shower after 7pm as there's no water in the shower as for the stuff i was really unsatisfied they are rude and they have a big lack of communication between them , and disrespectful, they will knock on ur door everyday during ur stay at 7 or 6:45 am for breakfast (which is really poor) even tho u asked for breakfast till 9am Many times but they still come very early in the morning and knock on ur door nonstop . And plus they had some construction going on during my stay which is was for 3 days and it was really noisy .
Cozy and Comfortable Hotel”
Our stay at this hotel was very relaxing. The bed was comfortable, the staff were great, always helpful in whatever way they can. The location was great. it was just a few minute walk to the beach and to the restaurants around town. Very accessible to public transport, there is a tricycle stand right outside the hotel. Wifi was not so good though. Maybe it's due to the weak signal of telcom providers in the province. The breakfast was good enough to tide you over to lunch. I would go back to this hotel.
Great Hotel with the nicest staff in the world”
I really enjoyed my stay here. The rooms are big and clean, the hotel is decorated really well with a great pool table but the number one thing was the staff. The lady that I think runs the hotel is possibly the nicest person I've ever met, it was more like staying with family than staying at a hotel - even to the point that if we had a big night and slept in until lunch time, she would just cook us our breakfast whenever we got up! I'd love to head back to El Nido, but the bus ride from Puerto Princesa is a bit of a deterrent.
Very affordable and all the staff were very friendly and accommodating
There is no sign for the hotel, so we found it first after help from locals. Our first room didn’t have a working toilet, so we got another one. There were ants in both rooms bathroom. We stayed there during 4 days. Not once did they come to the room to empty trash cans. The place has a WiFi that is okey, but not stable. You can’t predict when it’s gonna work or not. Breakfast is served during 7-9 and you order from a menu the night before. This also includes choosing time for delivered breakfast outside your room, a great thing if working. We got our breakfast 15 min late 2 times, more than 30 min late one time and one time 15 min too early so they knocked on our door and woke us up. We also had bad luck with neighbors. 2 of 4 nights included shouting in the middle of the night from these drunk guests. The place isn’t the worst, but I do think there are places in town at the same price range with more quality for the money
Needs some upkeep”
The place had most of the amenities I was wanting, but the room had problems! hot water heater didn't work and the bathroom sink drained onto the bathroom floor! Nice hotel style and large rooms though. Just the property needs a lot of upkeep
What I Like: spacious room, has own dining place per room, somehow a peaceful place, cheap, free coffee What I didn't like: breakfast is not good, uncomfortable pillows, cable doesnt work most of the time, signal or wifi doesnt work most of the time as well, place is like a 5-10 min walk to the town where you can buy food
Budget Accommodation ”
No sign of hotel entrance. You'll be surprised at the entrance since you will passed by a construction site. There was cockroach in the cr. But since this is a budget accomodation, you don't really have to expect high for this.
Feels like home ”
Pros: - We arrived at 2am and there's still reception who accomodate us. 24H RECEPTION IS LEGIT! LOL - They serve breakfast on time. (We requested 7:30, and it was served sharp 7:30) - Free use of billiard table - Breakfast is good! - Room is still cold even if aircon is already turned off. (On our first night, we arrived at 2am and it happens that there's a electrical black-out, generator only supports fan, tv and lights) Cons: - so much mosquitoes outside the room - Cabinets are quite old already
Recommended for groups”
Everything was okay except that currently it's beside an on-going construction. So it's a bit dusty and the hotel front is not noticeable. But overall, our stay was satisfactory.
Staff are brilliant but the place is a disaster ”
Only the title needed
Untidy and dated ”
A lot of construction at the site wiTh building materials all over the place made it a fairly unpleasant place to stay and the decor and style was very dated. Hotels in El Nido are massively overpriced by Philippine standards and compared to their other resorts and compared to others here this was good value however it is still too expensive for what you get. WiFi didn’t work at all, and would only have been available in a small part of the hotel anyway. Staff were very friendly and helpful although in spite of staying for 5 nights there was no housekeeping at all and only replaced toilet roll and emptied the bin on request. Breakfast was pretty good and delivered at the requested time. Overall I would say this hotel is ok.
* value for money is ok, we get what we paid for * location is just walking distance from restaurants * As what I have read in the previous reviews a year ago, it is still the same. It looks like it is under renovation, but I have not seen any rooms being constructed. Before you get inside, it looks hardware outside. They have a lot of constructions materials and it looks so messy. * Staff are very accommodating
still under construction, but it didn't bother our stay.... staffs were accommodating and friendly. i ask for a honeymoon bed, and they provided it. location is away from the busy street, yet 5 to 10 min walk away from the restaurant and beach....
A hotel for foreigners”
If you are a foreigner then this hotel is good for you, but if you are a Filipino like me, then don't bother choosing this hotel. I chose this hotel because the pictures of the hotel are cool. I like antique places and this one was definitely a hotel I would like to stay in. When we got there, it was kind of disappointing because it was like entering a construction site. I saw some reviews from 2013 and until now they are still renovating. When we got inside the smell of paint welcomed us. But the staff was kind and polite to assist us in our room. I saw in their flyer that they are serving breakfast so the next day I asked if they can serve us breakfast. The staff politely said that they don't serve breakfast. So we just went out and tried to find a restaurant that serves breakfast early in the morning. Most of the restaurants are still closed, but eventually we found a restaurant. When we came back to the hotel, we saw a foreigner asking about their breakfast. Then the staff politely said that they are preparing it already. And I saw breakfast being served with fruits beautifully carved. As a Filipino, it is really degrading and I felt belittled. Remember, a fellow countrymen did this to us. I don't know if they have done this to others. Maybe we just look poor that's they don't want to serve us breakfast? I don't know. After that, I just want to go to another hotel, but I don't want to waste the money I've paid. Also, no wifi and no cellphone signal in our rooms. So please, don't choose this hotel... there are better hotels out there :)
