    Acceptable”

    Please see complaint filed withAgoda Customer Service. No airport pickup after two confirms. Sparking and damaged electrical outlet. No maintenance on site and no show for one that was called. TV kept going off and remote broke along w half severed tv cable at wall attachment which gave poor cable reception when tv worked at all. Someone entered room without permission to turn off air conditioner while out for quick lunch No lock box/safe in room for cash or valuables. There was more but these are the primarily reason for a bad review.

    Friendly Staff, Good Breakfast.”

    All good except the bad smell came out of toilet, we had to bear with bad smell during our stay. Internet connection was faith, you could not even send a messenger during night time to next early morning. But friendly staffs, they could help you a lot, give your all information you need. And last, it has very good location, you just have to walk 3 min to dock for touring. Nice breakfast too.

    We booked two rooms. Rooms 4 and 5 were given to us. Room 5 has bed bugs, we had bite marks all over our body. On our third day the staff asked us if we want our rooms cleaned. We said yes, but upon returning, the rooms were not cleaned and the toiletries were not replaced.

    One of the cheapest and convenient location”

    Upon arrival at 4pm, we were immediately checked in. The front desk gave us the room keys. Good: Rooms are clean, a bit small but good for the price we paid for. Lots of hangers. There's space for clothes. Lots of power outlets too. Bathroom is spaceous enough. It's also clean. Bed, sheets and pillows are very comfortable. Free breakfast have plenty of choices and also yummy. Location is near to the beach and where tour pick up are. Reception and data is spotty. Wifi is also spotty. Staff is friendly and accommodating. Room for improvements: no hot water area downstairs on the first level for people who wants coffee first thing when they wake up. Minor: We were not informed if there's wifi or what's the password, water or how breakfast ordering works and had to ask for it.

    Location is very accessible!”

    The location is just near the port. Just a few minutes away from the restaurants. No need to ride a tricycle. And the best part is that it is near the meet up location of the island hopping! No hassle! Breakfast has a lot of variety. Clean room and shower is with hot and cold. Wifi is not so good in the area as well as data but this gives opportunity to enjoy the place rather than focusing on you phone. Overall, satisfied client here! Will surely stay with this hotel again!

    Conveniently located just a 100 meters from the ferry drop off, basic and clean. If you leave the room to go get something from the store they turn the AC off and you have to hunt someone down to get them to turn it back on since it’s on an independent switch you have no control over. Otherwise, nice people and quiet location just a 5 minute walk from the heart of El Nido town action.

    The staff are the coolest. They allowed us to use their CRs after our last Island Hopping Tour even though we already checked out in the morning. They have menu for breakfast which are delicious and will definitely make you full until lunch time of your tour. They offer tours and van transfer, though we weren't able to acquire their services.

    We get to Joaquinn’s at around 4am, check-in starts at 2pm but still they accommodated us in their extra room without any extra charge... the owner was so kind to let us stay in their family room with no extra fee... thank you for the kind gesture.

    Directly to the port, close but quite to the lively streets of El Nido”

    Like most hotels in El Nido the price is too high, but comparing to other hotels the value for money can be rated as good. The staff is very friendly and helpfull. If you emphasize of being connected to the online world, you should know that the hotel didn't offer WiFi-access and the public network is very poor at the hotel location, especially on the ground floor. In the room I didn't get any network connection, in the front of the room only Edge-speed. This is a bit disappointed if you also just want to use a messenger to communicate with other people staying on an other location in El Nido. If you don't take care about that, the hotel is recommended from my side.

    Super friendly and the place is very clean!”

    If you want a clean and affordable accommodation, try Joaquinn's Bed and Breakfast! The owner and staffs are very friendly! Their location is very near from the port where you will ride the boat for your island hopping. But what we enjoyed the most is their island hopping package! Ms. Angel took care of our 2 days Tour. She gave us a crew that are very friendly and nice! Aside from being our tour guide, they are also excellent photographers! They know how to take great photos! When we were in the small lagoon, kuya dan and jimmy also rented a kayak just to take our photos! They managed to follow us around the lagoon. When we got back from the island hopping, we've checked the photos, and all of them are amazing! Thank you Joaquinn crew for making our El Nido trip a memorable experience! :)

    Best B&B in El Nido”

    Location is within town proper but less or no noise at all. Near the restos and the marina. Clean rooms and good staff. Only downside is if you get hungry in the middle of the night as they only serve breakfast. Overall, it's a good experience!

    Nice friendly place”

    Very helpful staff, good location

    First the niggles. The standard rooms are rather small, epecially if you're a couple with 2 big suitcases. And the wifi is really not reliable. Now the good: Maricel and her team are super helpful and friendly and will go the extra mile to ensure that you are happy. When my partner was taken ill, Maricel accompanied us by tricycle to the emergency doctor at 10pm, waited until the consultation was done, and accompanied us back to the B&B. Her team helped us in all kinds of ways and generally ensured that our memories of Joaquinn's are very happy ones. Also, the breakfast was fine and is served on the roof terrace with lovely views across the bay to the islands. And although the rooms are small, they're clean, with A/C, fan, TV and hot water. Joaquinn's has its own generator for brown-outs, allowing the use of lighting and fans. If you want to be looked after by really nice people while in El Nido, Joaquinn's is a good choice. If the lack of reliable wifi is a problem, the Art Cafe is 2 minutes walk away and has free wifi and decent espresso.

    Helpful and thoughtful staff, delicious breakfast, city center location

    My sister and I had a great time in El Nido thanks to very helpful and thoughtful staff in Joaquinn's. The front desk officer not only made sure we had pleasant stay in the hotel but also ensured that we are well taken care of during all our tours (island hopping, underground river tour, inland tours). He recommended us great restaurants, message places, arranged transportation and all logic for our tours. This is more than thoughtful. Thanks to him we could enjoy and try many aspect of life at El Nido. We will surely come back. There's regular blackouts but the B&B has generators so we always had lights and at least the very powerful fan in the room. The room is with AC and it's very comfortable. Their Philippine breakfast has great verities to choose from so we tried them all. They have no tap water so we shower with processed/filtered sea water (we guessed because it's slightly salty). This is not problem to us. The drinking water is provided at every floor. It's purified and completely safe. During blackouts we still had water in our room, so no worries. We stayed for 8 days and our blankets, sheets and towels were changed 3 times. Each time with different color scheme so we were surprised. Daily house keeping was very thorough. We felt we had a brand new room everyday. The B&B has their own boat for island hopping tours. It's quite new and well-maintained. We were the only group that did island hopping with music which was really a plus. We will surely come back the next time.
