    Stay away !!”

    At first sight, this hotel corresponds to a normal low budget accommodation which is totally fine. However, the first surprise was waiting after the shower when I literally got a second shower of short black hair when trying to dry myself with the provided towel - super disgusting !! The airconditioning was shut down for a few hours in the middle of the night. Also we wished we didn’t eat the included breakfast which most probably was the cause of the food poisoning we suffered the next 2 days - never again !!

    I find el Nido to be overpriced for what you get in a hotel. So with that being said this is a good hotel but don't expect much for what you pay for. It's clean and minimal but does the trick.

    Great price and only 3Km from town.”

    El Nido has over 200 properties that are not on this website. However Columbus Inn gives you exactly what you need when visiting El Nido. Air con. Comfortable beds. Towels. Cold showers which is actually great because it's warm in El nido. Free breakfast brought to your room. One of the cheapest places online. You do not need to pay anything over 1800 PHP a night here in El nido. Every place offers breakfast and aircon. Just find the right place. Tricyle takes 10 minutes and costs you 50 Peso. No noise in evening. Can see the sun set. I would recommend here for two nights. Then move into town.

    Terrible shower, decent room, power cuts”

    My shower smelt TERRIBLE. I don't use that word lightly. No windows and port ventilation, it smelt very strongly of mold. I would hold my breadth every time... Their breakfast omelette is deepfries in oil, so terrible. Power cut almost every day, no backup generator. Everything else was good, but washroom is a serious deal breaker. I was in the larger building with multiple units.

    decent place, breakfast heads up”

    Enjoyed my stay. Only annoyance was breakfast. It's prepared ahead of time which is ok but you aren't really given a choice. If you are a foreigner, they assume you want pancakes. And if you are Filipino, you will get a Filipino set. It would have been nice to get a choice. TIP- Wake up soon after the ladies put the food out on each table but make sure its before the other parties wake up. Then, just go and swap out with the other parties if you don't like your breakfast set.

    We stayed at the Columbus inn for three nights and it was a very pleasent stay. We loved the location so peaceful compared to the town. Every morning we had breakfast on the terrace which was really nice you could see the sea from there. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The wifi connection was a bit poor but once you restart it, it worked ok. Would stay again

    Our room at Columbus inn was awesome it came with a terrace were we ate the delicious breakfast which was pancakes and omelet. Short ride into el Nido town. We found it a nice location on the hill and away from the hustle and bustle of the streets. Hot water was great. Wanted to extend our stay but unfortunately no rooms

    Location is not the best, but good for El nido because you can not walk to the beach anyway. Rooms are basic but clean, the staff is so kind and villing to help and the best off all is breakfast and coffe that are wainting for you in front of the room.
