Good Place in town very nice staff ”
Our stay was very good, the staff is very professional and nice, rooms very clean and good beds, air con works well. The morning breakfast is a nice touch and even cook eggs to order. It can be a bit noisy if your on the road side but wasn't an issue for us. That is normal for anyplace in el nido town though, if a bit of normal local noise is an issue suggest stay out of town. Wifi only works in the lobby again no big deal, don't go to El nido if you want fast internet. We would stay here again

Best location and very nice breakfast buffet”
I enjoyed our stay in Ipil Suites and it made our El Nido trip very relaxing. We had a nice big room with surrounding glass windows. The loft is also an exceptional feature. I like how the owner roams around the place in the morning to check on all aspects of the hotel. Feels like home!

My only problem with Ipil Suites is that we requested a double sized bed. What we were given were two single beds joint together. It was uncomfortable. But other than that, we loved the service from the staff, as well as the location. It's near restaurants and the beach. They also clean the room and change towels daily.
Dear Ms. Bernadette, Thanks for leaving us such a wonderful review. We are glad that you loved our services; our dedicated staff will be pleased to learn of your high praise. Upon verifying, you did request for a double bed room but initially booked a twin bed room. We are very sorry if we didn't provide you a double bed during the time, we only have one standard double bed room and it was occupied (booked beforehand) so all booked twin beds will instead be place side by side each other (turning it into one double bed). We are happy to know that you have loved the location of our facility. We do hope to welcome you back to IPIL again in the future. Sincerely Yours, IPIL SUITES MANAGEMENT
Ipil Suites is a decent place to stay in El Nido. I love its facade & strategic location! ”
I love the big glass corner windows on the staircase as we go up the stairs to our room, with wide solid wooden steps and unique floor decors. The room we stayed in was clean and smells good with cool working AC, TV & clean bathroom. I love that the shower is separate from the toilet and has a good ventilation. The breakfast buffet was delicious and there were water dispensers on every floor of the hotel for us to refill our drinking glasses from our room so as to limit consumption of bottled water in plastic containers. Ipil Suites gave us good value for our money. The staff were also attentive to our needs and courteous when we checked in. Overall, we are satisfied with their service and accomodation.

The restroom had yellow stains and molds on tiles. The shower sliding door was stucked and can't be closed. The room is gloomy, not like the one in the photos. We were assigned a room at the 4th floor and there was no elevator. We won't come back again.
Dear Valued Guest, Thank you for taking the time to make a review we appreciate your feedback. Our sincere apologies that your recent experience was not satisfactory. Rest assured we have taken your feedback and we will endeavor to deliver a better experience in there near future . Again our sincere apologies. Best Regards, IPIL SUITES MANAGEMENT
Nice location and breakfast was awesome! You have to eat breakfast early because they have limited seats. Great hotel experience but there was one problem, the reception staff failed to note the extra bed that I availed in advance with Agoda. I had to pull up my booking (on the spot) to prove that I already paid for the extra bed.
Hi Ms. Hanna, Thank you for taking the time to review our property, your comments are very much valued. We apologize for the problems that you encountered during your last stay. We will keep this concern as ground for improvement of our check-in process. We value our customers’ opinions and would like to thank you for bringing this to our attention.

The Good: 1. Family room (Room 407) is spacious enough for us a family of 6. Nice ambiance. 2. Buffet breakfast is good. 3. Staff is very helpful and friendly. 4. They made us to go snacks (sandwiches, banana and bottle water) since we were checking out before 6 AM. 5. Location is very near restaurants. The Bad: 1. Reservation staff in Manila seems to sleeping in the job. A few days before our check-in inquiries and requests via Agoda private message were not being answered. The Neutral: 1. No elevators. I didn't mind it because I'm a fairly active person. I actually liked it. This might be an issue with senior citizens or people who dislike slight physical challenges. 2. Room 407 had weak air conditioning. But they did compensate for it by offering a new room. 3. No wifi in the rooms only at the lobby. I liked this also. It forced me to disengage with technology and social media which is the purpose of vacation anyway. This may be hard for social media addicts.
Hi Sir Reuel, Thanks for taking the time to make a review. We appreciate it. We are happy to hear that you have enjoyed your over-all stay. Regarding the points you have made about our Manila Reservation, upon checking yes we have saw that your messages from September where answered as soon as possible, but then we failed to response to your message two days prior your arrival due to system error. We usually receive messages from Agoda via our reservation main email but we did not receive the later email, our sincerest apology about this. Regarding elevators, thank you for stating it, for senior citizens guests we keep them informed about lack of elevator and as much as possible give them rooms at the most lower floor. Internet connection is available at the lobby area only and we can't assure strong connection since this is a major concern in whole of El Nido. We do hope you get a chance to visit us again during your next visit to El Nido. Thank you, IPIL SUITES MAN
Experienced was not too bad. Actually, the staff was very friendly and helpful( special mention to Sir Jayson “highly recommended” ka kuya! and Ms. Jinky). They gave us a good stay for 3days/2nights. The room was clean and okay. Buffet was good vs. the price we paid. However, one of the recepcionist “aiza” needs to be more friendly and accommodating, be pleasant at your looks and prioritize the guest who came first not the foreigner next to me! Know your guest request or try to coordinate with other receptionist who assisted us first. All in all, they were okay but not so great.
Dear Ms. Larra, Thank you for your comments. I apologize for the service that you encountered during your last stay from one of our front desk. This is not the type of review that we like to see, and we assure you that we will be looking into each point that you have made. We will call the attention of concern individual to properly align our services into one common goal. Thank you for staying with us, and we look forward to another chance to serve you. Best Regards, IPIL SUITES MANAGEMENT
reasonable price for a short stay”
if you're looking for a luxurious hotel with nice facilities, this is definitely not your place. but if you feel like hotel is just somewhere you can take a shower and have a sleep, you would rather spending more time on the beach or the sea, this is definitely the place you're looking for. the best part is its location. you can reach the beach easily. stores, bank, money exchange, and all kinds of restaurants are nearby.

Good base in El Nido”
Had a good stay, right at the heart of the town proper. Fortunately the rolling blackouts in the island didn't bother us (only happened once and it was short). Room comfy with A/C and fan. Cable channels not very satisfying but fair enough. Wifi only available at common area. The breakfast buffet was very good!
Dear Ms. Shirley, Thanks for leaving us such a wonderful review. We are glad that you and family loved our services. We take pride in giving outstanding service to every customer and we're overjoyed to receive your compliments and appreciation. We will take note about your WIFI concern and we are on the process of improving our connections. This has been a recurring concern in the whole El Nido, still we are looking forward for improvements. We do hope that this will be solved once you get back to El Nido :) Thank you, once again, for your kind words. Sincerely Yours, IPIL SUITES MANAGEMENT

The staff there at Ipil were "sobrang mabayet" - too kind to us, especially to our mokolet son, who demanded (and got) so much from them. Including a free going away ice cream cone from the front desk staff. I wish we could have given them a "10" rating! Our hats are off to them all.

I can recommend Ipil Suites 100% for the cleanliness, the bed the blankets are very smell good, the staff is kind, the place is nice etc.. I am very delicate in smell, but this hotel, I love the family room, so comfortable to stay. Oh, the food? Not bad.

Our room was located in the lobby (102), and my boyfriend and I had to endure the foul smell coming from the restroom, I think they have sewage problems! The location was great since it’s in the town proper and it’s known by the trike drivers, but the smell was really hard to endure, and I was actually worried that we would get suck. Awesome staff, but it’s better to upgrade on a nicer hotel for better experience.

Disappointing that we had to cancel”
I booked for two rooms with large beds. Upon arrival, my colleague was disappointed that the place has no wifi connection in the rooms as it is limited to the lobby area only. The staff was not sensitive that the guest would want to rest from a long trip. He had requested us to listen to their house rules which he can just give us a copy to read. We requested for rooms in the lower level as there was no elevator - the staff gave us rooms in the third floor. My colleague's room has balcony but the door/window has no lock and we are aware of the recent theft issue in El Nido. To my dismay, upon entering my own room, the large bed is actually two adjoining single beds which when you sleep in the middle portion, you will feel the hard part of the bed for the lack of mattress . We had to find another room and cancelled our booking.
came from a 5 day boat expedition and the first thing I wanted to do upon check in was to take a hot shower. Had to take a shower across the street on hotel’s sister property Plumbing broken , no hot water, and stall doesn’t drain well when I was told it was already fixed. Breakfast is uneventful. Customer service could be better .
Will book again”
Their staff are friendly and helpful. Though the first floor room have lots of mosquitoes.
Dear Valued Guest, Thank you for taking the time to review our property, your comments are very much valued. We appreciate your comments regarding our customer service. We are pleased that you found value and hospitality during your stay. We will take note on your comment about the 1st floor rooms and will do necessary actions to improve our facilities. We look forward to seeing you on your next trip! Best Regards, IPIL SUITES MANAGEMENT
Good location and clean”
We didn't spend much time at the room with exploring the Island and Island hopping however, the rooms were fit for purpose and the breakfast was fine. The wifi is awful but it is pretty much the same all across El Nido, best place for wifi is definitely Gusto (gelato place). Also, there is a lot of building works next to the hotel which commenced around 5am so bring ear plugs! I liked that there was a free water tank in the communal space to fill your water bottles.

We had a good stay for 4 nights and 5 days”
We were a big group of 12. The hotel accommodated tours as well. Family room has a high bed aside from 2 double beds. Ask though as there are family rooms good for 4 and good for 6 - both of which is priced the same. Would definitely book ipil if we get to go back to el nido.
Upgrade to get a view”
Not all rooms have a terrace or a good view so if thats what you are after please make sure to call the hotel and ask for it. wifi and cable is dependent on rain and wind. if the weather is bad, expect no wifi and no cable.
