Good
Price compared to hotel is fine, wifi was really good (everywhere its so bad), aircon ,pretty clean rooms, little bit too small but 30e per night. 60 pesos to city center. Nice place on the beach side not swimmable. It still was worth it, i heard people paid 50 euros night of horrible hotels. I recommend if small budjet

Awful
Have to walk uphill from the hotel to the main road (approx. 200 yards) since the hotel is far from the road. No wifi at all. Staff needs proper training as to customer service and knowledge. I got confused with another guest causing me to miss my reservation for a tour. The staff sent me to a different tour pick-up guide and sent the other guest to the other. AWFUL.

Far from everything
Beachfront is not good. just nice for wake up and have breakfast looking at the sea. Far from town and the need to climb a road to get to the main road to get a tuk tuk to take you to the action. No restaurants nearby.

Basic but good
We ended up in El Nido earlier than expected so stayed here for a night. We weren't too sure what to expect after reading the reviews but we were pleasantly surprised. Clean room, big bed, on the water (although not swimmable), beautiful sunrise and during low tide you can walk around to Las Cabanas which is a nice beach with a few beach bars. Only a cheap tuk tuk from town. Good value

Away from town
This is a late review for this hotel. We stayed at this hotel from May 21-24,2017. We almost missed the hotel if I had not seen the sign by the road just past the lookout point on our way to El Nido.( 1st timer here) It is located before the town center if you're coming from PP. I liked that it is away from town proper. It is a quiet retreat and just a tricycle ride to town. The hotel is not visible from the National highway. You have to walk down a dirt road to the hotel. There is also construction in front of the entrance to the hotel. As soon as we got in the hotel, the staff right away assisted us bring our luggages to our 3rd floor room.The view from our bedroom window and the veranda was amazing. It is beachfront but the water is not suitable for swimming. It is muddy and quite gross looking if you ask me. It was partly cloudy the 3 days we were there, so sunset was not spectacular. The room is small with just enough room in between the beds and to walk to the bathroom. It has a double size bunk bed and a single bed by the window.(There were 5 in our group) Our carry-on luggages fit under the bed. There is a closet with shelves. The bathroom is a basic toilet, sink, and shower combo. No shower curtain to separate the shower. No hooks for your clothes or towel. They provide you with a drying rack in the veranda. Water pressure is low in the shower. Elmer took us to town in the van for dinner the 1st night. Then we took 2 tricycles back and forth town from then on. Tricycle ride is 10- 20 pesos per person depending on the driver. My most favorite thing about this hotel are their pillows. I love their pillows! They are so comfortable for my aching neck. I was going to buy 1 but apparently, they are imported. Thank you Madame owner. Breakfast was good and serve on the veranda just outside our door. Order your breakfast the night before. Thank you, Michelle. Elmer arranged our 1st day tour. We opted for our own private tour. It was all worth it. OMG! It's not

Great accommodation!
I've lived in the Philippines for 2 years so I think I know what's good or bad. This hotel was great! Me and my wife loved it! Yes the room might be a tad bit small but for what your paying it's great. The hotel staff were very nice and even after delayed flights and a very late can the guy at the front desk was there at midnight waiting for us! Also far enough away from the crazyness of El Nido but close enough to tryke! I'd definitely stay here again.

No Hot Water in 21 days!
Stayed here for 3 weeks and had 3 hot showers, No HOT Water. They give you some excuse about it and also blame it on construction next door but this is no excuse when you are staying for such a long time. They should tell you no hot water before you book the non-refundable room paid in advance. The wont provide a blanket either as the room comes with no blankets and they ask for more money if you want 1 blanket. Internet is very very slow when it works. Breakfast is nothing to cheer about, the road to the hotel from the main road is a dirt sand road with rocks and not an easy climb down or up. The waterfront location is not a swimable beach. Closest beach is about 10 minutes away by foot. Some days they shut the Air condition off when your still in the room and forget to turn it back on. Bring alot of mosquito spray as you will need it with the noseeums on the island. Staff is very friendly and nice but the hotel lacks a few basics to make it a comfortable stay. Biggest issue is no Hot water for shower in the morning afternoon or evening, even when the hotel is empty or full. If you staying for 2-3days then you can manage without the hot water, but longer than that gets annoying. One last thing, the door and air condition needs to be sealed around the edges as mosquito's and bugs get in.

Feb 2017 to celebrate my B-Day in Palawan
Staff, Gina and EJ were quite accommodating. Agoda website claimed hot shower, but no hot water while we're there. The boiler needs replacement per Hotel Manager. EL Nido area is still developing and many things (especially lodging) isn't up to par compared to Puerto Princesa. El Nido town is very small. Hence congested. Missed an opportunity to go Island Hopping (prices are quite stiff --- P1.2K/pp, where most island hopping in other islands cost is very cheap --- P1.2K-1.5K for private Banca Boat.
