    Fantastic views great new hotel”

    View , close to everything , staff

    After making it to El Nido from Coron, (in what could be loosely termed a 'boat ' NOT a ferry as was described to me when I bought my ticket ), I left my bags with the coast guard who have a little office at the entrance to the port and were really friendly , I then spent an hour or so trying to find a room, the prices in town are really expensive , over 2500p for a sea view in one of the hotels in the main area, and actually a lot were full ! I eventually settled on Dayunan El Nido Tourist Inn hotel which is to the right of the main town, and port ,(as you dock ), it's a 3 storey new building only open since December 2013 , I'd read the reviews on agoda which didn't rate it very highly, but I thought I'd go and have a look as I was right next to it . I looked at the deluxe and the basic room ,there's nothing too different between them, there both small and clean with comfortable double bed, but the deluxe has fantastic views over the bay and with the balcony to sit on was my preference. At this stage in my travels I'm filtering out the noisy cockerels , but there are some arround the hotel,and it's no use complaining about them as there never far away from any hotel in the philipines , other than the birds the hotel was really quiet, and for the money excellent value. They put out free tea coffee ,(and ovaltine?),each morning and I also had a small breakfast for 100p which they brought to my room so I had that on the balcony ! The young girl that runs this hotel is superb and really switched on , I got the deluxe room for 1850p inc breakfast per night, but the hotel was fairly quiet and it took me a lot of haggling. When I left it was full ! El nido does not have an ATM so make sure you have cash here ! I only had enough to pay cash for one night so had to book a room on agoda for the other .(wifi is ok but not fantastic ) So a really nice hotel on the front,

    Hectic 1-day stay at the hotel”

    Cleanliness, very friendly staff, strategic location

    We only stayed for one night at the inn and while we were supposed to check out the following day, we were still enjoying our extended tour of the islands. The friendly staff very graciously allowed us to leave our luggage with them and even extended us the use of their shower room situated at the back of the inn when we came back late in the afternoon. My wife and i are planning to go back to El Nido soon with the kids, and for sure, we will be staying once again at Dayunan El Nido Tourist Inn.

The staff was excellent, very friendly, helpful and did an excellent job cleaning the rooms.

    Location is good, it is a few feet away from the port. Even though its walking distance from the town proper, its also very quiet since its not in the main road. We liked that we had a balcony with a view too!(make sure to request this as not all rooms have sea view). Breakfast was okay as well and you get to eat in the roof deck overlooking el nido. The only thing i didnt like was there were ants. Staff were helpful ang nice. Thank you Dayunan! We had a very nice stay in El Nido. :)

    Perfect Budget Accommodation in El Nido”

    Plus points: Receptionist for us past 11pm after traveling from Puerto Princesa to El Nido by land transfer, location is very strategic and only 5min walk away from the main beachfront for the tour pickups and restaurants, large-spaced room with new AC units, helpful and accommodating staff, wonderful view of Bacuit Bay from the rooftop common area where you'd enjoy the plated breakfast, has genset power for the notorious power outages in El Nido. Minus Points: In contrast to the room space, bathroom is very tiny, shower area could barely stretch my arms in front of me. While the room was clean, the floor felt sticky-wet. Bring your own toiletries, only tiny bar soaps provided, which is to be expected for a budget inn.

    Super nice stay a minute away from all the buzz”

    Dayunan was great! It's just far enough away from the noise of El Nido that you don't hear a thing but close enough that it takes 1 minute walking to get there. The rooms are clean, air conditioning is strong and the staff very nice. Breakfast is decent and they have water to fill your water bottles. Only improvement could be better WiFi that would extend to the rooms. Right now it's only on the bottom floor and the roof top.

    Heaven on Earth”

    Waking up in the morning looking at the beach while the towering limestone mountains are just behind you - one of the best feeling in my travel across the Philippines. The room, facility and proximity are not bad. Their staffs are one of the most friendly and helpful during my all-Palawan vacation. I only wish the neighboring residences could keep the creek beside to eliminate the bad dirty canal odor. Other than that - my El Nido experience is one of the best and that's because of this Inn.

    Pleasant stay”

    friendly staff, good location, clean

    We stayed for 5 nights at Dayunan with our family of 4 and booked a deluxe room and a standard room. The deluxe rooms are at the front of the hotel and have a small balcony with sea view. The standard rooms are larger than the deluxe rooms but do not have a balcony. The rooms are occupied with 2 single beds (can be moved to form a double bed), aircon, led tv and a small cabinet. Power outlets can be used by both European and US connectors. The bathroom is small but contains all you need. Note that there is a problem with the plumbing of the sink in the bathrooms of the deluxe rooms, the pipes don't fit well and therefore the water that separates the sewer from your room evaporates at night. This happened to us the first night and makes your room and the bathroom smell like dead corpses. However, we found a simple solution which I would recommend to all guests: just leave the tap of the sink slightly open at night and there is no smell at all. Breakfast is served at the rooftop, which has a breath taking view. Breakfast is good and you are asked for your choice (pancake, continental, fish, hotdog, tocino or tapsiloc) and the desired time the night before. The hotel is located in front of the sea. On the left of the hotel you find an area with the houses of the locals. On the other side you find a small bridge to cross the sewer (smell is not that bad and you do not smell this inside your room or at the rooftop, just be sure to leave the tap open). The main street and beach where all the tours start are two minutes walking. The staff of the hotel is friendly and helpful. The room is cleaned daily and towels are also refreshed daily. Be sure to check tour C, which is the most beautiful of all tours. In conclusion, this hotel is ok, but (like allmost hotels in El Nido) way overprized according to European standards. If you do not care about the view I would recommend the standard rooms as they have bigger bathrooms and bedrooms than the deluxe rooms.

    Not fancy, not budget survival either”

    Location, IMHO, very good. Walk away from Art Caffee, or beach-side bars, but El Nido is a small town, and this distance really means nothing. On the other hand the gas station is right outside, so if you happen to be renting a motorcycle (we did), it plays just great. Also, you can ride the motorcycle on the wooden pathway all to the main entrance to the hotel, which then feels like they have a private, fenced parking lot. For lots of hostels at the main el nido walkway, you just park on the street. So with a bike, I consider this place actually better off. Yet, the location is not the strict center of the town, so perhaps that is why the price is really really nice. Rooms are small but clean and functional, the water pressure in the shower is acceptable, which was not the case in another hotel in the town, better located and 3 times more expensive - to me the water pressure matters, I was sold. Some rooms incorporate balcony/terrace, these are sweet, we were out of luck, but still no complain. WiFi only worked either in the lobby or on the rooftop, which is where the meals are served. The building itself seems relatively new, the staff was super nice and helpful, the tricycles are still easy to catch by just outside of the premise. Just FYI, to reach Art Caffe, the wal would be 5 to 10 min depending on how you walk (for me it was 5). So yes, it is off the center of the town, but no, it does not matter much.

    Great hotel option in El nido”

    Staff, room, location

    Was a great place to stay, very clean and comfortable. Many other places are cheaper but then you only get a small bed in a tiny room with a fan that barely works and probably no shower. THIS PLACE, however, was a proper luxurious experience. Although the room was quite small (el Nido is a tiny place) it was of very high standard. Located to the west side of the beach it is very quiet and roosters won't wake you up at stupid'o'clock, overall a great experience and I will stay there again when I go back to el Nido.

    Great Hotel just off beaten path”

    Front Desk Staff, Rooftop terrace, daily included breakfast

    Overall this hotel was awesome at a great price. Included daily breakfast on rooftop terrace with a beautiful view. The front desk girls worked really long hours and were always so happy and receptive when they saw us and helped with every issue we had. This hotel is location just next to the pier and is hidden from the main drag of hotels and is a diamond in the rough. Great to be amongst the local hustle and bustle and only a 1-2min walk from everything El Nido has to offer. Loved this hotel from the cleanliness to location and price, would recommend to any and everyone.

    Convenient beach hotel”

    The location at the end of El Nido beach, with lovely eateries and diving/island tour packages was most convenient

    The stay at Dayunan El Nido Tourist Inn was pleasant with friendly staff and it was a new hotel of only a few months old. The electricity cut-off daily betweeen 6am - 2pm was most uncomfortable, as one can't sleep late and wifi service was also affected. The hotel could have provided a generator to solve this problem. The shower head and water pressure was not appropriate for an adequate shower as it was like trickling at times. Breakfast can also be provided at the rooftop as most of the other hotels have that too. Otherwise, the good location was pleasant as it was only a few minutes walk to the restaurants, bars and other sporting activities and island hopping tours.

    Family Room, Roof Terrace, Location

    As the inn is quite new and the staff unexperienced exspect some teething. However, the staff is open for ideas and suggestions so simply tell them what you want done and they do their best to get it done. The house is located at the west end of El Nido beach beside the port. You are not right next to all the bars and restaurants with sometimes screeming music but all is within walking distance. The roof terrace is the biggest plus of this hotel. We booked a twin room. That room is (too) small (10m2) for 2 average westerners; and with luggage it is nearly impossible to move around. the private balcony is good for 1 person. we asked the staff for the biggest room and there is a "family room" with 2 twins and one queen size bed. the room can not be booked online and you need to negotiate the price. it has no private balcony but that room is great. laundry: too expensive!

    Good place in El Nido”

    close to the beach, friendly staff, nice terrace

    It's a little bit pricey, but all in all I had a good experience. It's not exactly ON the beach, but it's very close and you can still get some nice view over the bay at sunset. The aircon is noisy and the surroundings are VERY noisy (expect the locals to start shouting and laughing at 6 am) but that's probably the same everywhere in El Nido unless you get a room in one of the fancy resorts. The girls at the reception are super nice! I would go back to Dayunan if I went back to E.N.

    Pros: You’ll get the value of your money. Room was small (also the bathroom) but clean. The staff are very friendly and reliable. Just ask them any question and they’ll be happy to assist you with any concerns like tour bookings, transpo, etc. Breakfast is simple but always served on time. Cons: The room is clean but needs repainting. A pipe broke during our last day. Frequent blackouts as with anywhere else in El Nido - they have generator but not enough to power the AC.

    The locatioin of this hotel is hidden by the main road, but most of the tricycle familiar with this hotel, just a short walk through the wooden path way from Milangrace Inn. This location is in the town proper, convenience place to go for island hopping, food and easily get the transfort to go amy where, tje price depend on your bargain skill. I love the roof top, nice place to relax and the view is amazing. This area also canget hot and cold drinking water, only simple breakfast is available, out of 3 choices, I prefer pancake and fruit I will stay again if I come to El Nido for holidays because the only cons is that the tap water not clean and the water pressure is low.
