worst !! water doesn't come out... and WiFi is weak..
The place I would stay if i ever go back !”
La Salangane hotel is a very quiet and peaceful place. We were scared at first not to be in the heart of the city center but the hotel is located 10-15 minutes away walking (5 minutes tuktuk). Beach shore right in front of the hotel, the rooms are spacious, clean and the AC was working well. Mary-Ann (the host) is very available, nice and provided very good service (booking island hopping tours, renting motorbikes, etc) Shame there were no more space when we wanted to stay longer ! I highly recommend this hotel !
A nice spacious self catering apartment just outside of El Nido town. It is a little out of the way and please note tricycles will be unable to drop you off at the property. Beautiful sunsets from the hammocks. A lovely place for couples.
Real beach life”
The owner is great. She is so sympathetic. Highly recommend.
Great view of the islands, housekeeper Merriam is very friendly and helpful. Villa is close to the town and airport. For me, I liked that it is a little out of the way to get to and quite. Its has family atmosphere and I hope people going there will treat it that way.
Overall ok for the price. You can cook and the place is spacious. But its very far from the town, in our case we rented a motorcycle for our whole stay to get around the town. And theres an issue with privacy because the window is very clear and the curtain is see-through so we can be seen outside. Nevertheless its worth the price and the care taker Meriam is helpful.
Location is really not good ”
They don’t have their own generator, so when there’s blackout there’s no electricity in the room. And the road to the guest house is constantly flooded due to the rain. You will have to walk in calf-high muddy water to go to town. We ended up renting a motorbike to get us around town. As the free shuttle tricycle was broken and we were stranded and had to walk through the muddy water to get to town. The room is spacious though, good for 3 people and big varandah balcony, the service was decent, which makes up for the whole staying experience. But I wouldn’t go back again. And would not recommend. There’s a reason why they don’t let you cancel once it’s booked. A trap.
All about the view”
If you are looking for a peaceful place that looks out to the sea and want serenity, this place is definitely for you. I was scared due to other’s review about the cleanliness but this place delivers in the cleanliness department. Nice clean sheets and towels. The view for the price is unbeatable. We had a balcony the looks out to the ocean through the foliage of palm and coconut trees whilst lone boats are moored in the distance. The staff are just a text away and are very responsive. As per other’s review on the accessibility, it is true. It’s out of the way. Our remedy for this was renting a scooter (500P/day at MAAMBENG Travel). Granted getting here was a daily adventure due to potholes but for us this makes us appreciate the place more. We even hosted a dinner party! I wanted to give this place a 1 star review to keep it from being popular but in my heart I can’t lie, this is by far one of the best price to quality I have ever stayed in the Philippines.
Very rude management after No Show at La Salangane Caalan Beach Villa”
The email I sent to Agoda below explain. Yes, indeed we were not able to check in at this hotel. Due to bad weather, the boat from Coron to El Nido in the Philippines was cancelled for 5 days in a row. We were forced to stay in Coron since there was absolutely nothing we could do about it. It was beyond anyone's control. We contacted the hotel La Salangane Caalan Beach Villa twice by email and explained the situation. We asked to have our dates changed. We did not receive any return email, and was simply ignored. The owner at our hotel in Coron, contacted La Salangane Caalan Beach Villa by phone and explained in Filipino language what append. The lady at La Salangane Caalan Beach Villa hotel was very rude and insulted the person who were trying to help us. Her word was, "I could not care". This will make me think again about using Agoda, although I do not blame Agoda for the actions taken by the hotel.
Pros: Friendly staff, and a roof over our head during the typhoons. Cons: Everything else. We had an apartment on the ground floor. Our front window had a sea view (nice), our back window had a "view" of the dumpster and accumulated trash and debris (awful), and our side window was against the host's apartment (little privacy). We may have never opened our curtains except for the fact that it was incredibly dark and dank in the room with frequent power outages. This isn't uncommon for El Nido, especially in typhoon season, but most places had a backup generator for this reason. We ended up heading next door often for a drink or a meal, simply for the excuse to be able to charge our phones. Even with the power on, the lights were dim and depressing. I suppose such an uncomfortable place had the unintended advantage of motivating us to be out of the room as much as possible, despite the constant rain during our stay. But coming "home" was always depressing. Stay away... far away.
Location not convenient without shuttle”
Even though location is considered near to town, 20 mins walk, it is considered far if you need to go town frequently to eat and buy things. This BnB only provide free shuttle for checking in and out, other time will be charged at 50 peso per trip while the rest of the hotels/BnBs nearby all provided free unlimited shuttle. The phone number listed on Agoda is incorrect so we can’t contact the BnB to provide shuttle when we check in. It is 1 km distance to the BnB from the main road and no transport can go to the hotels/BnBs in the area except for their own shuttle service. We had to struggle with our luggage and luckily another hotel’s tricycle came by and is willing to send us to our BnB for free! Subsequently we got the correct contact no. from the reception Maryann but it is almost impossible to reach her. She don’t pick up calls, few times we have to ask other hotel tricycles to fetch us when we see them, else we will have to walk back. Walking back, we’ll have to pass by a cemetery so it can be very creepy at night with limited lights. I will not recommend this BnB to anyone.
Most of the hotels in El Nido are pretty small especially for the price as people aren't really there for a nice hotel room but to explore the beauty of the island. The location is a bit of a walk from the heart of the town but we didn't mind it. At most it was 20 minutes it was a good walk, safe even at night. Renting a scooter is a cheap option for you as well, we really enjoyed exploring the island with it. The room was exceptionally clean and daily serviced by non other than the amazing Miriam. She can help you with everything, from booking trips, renting scooters or any relevant questions that comes to mind. She is also very kind and hospitable. The room was spacious, it had a little kitchen and wooden floors. The bed sheets were daily changed, trash emptied and restroom cleaned... by Miriam. Outside there's a table for you to utilize whether you want to drink there or have dinner. My favorite was the hammock facing the beach! Also Makulay is a dope breakfast spot! :)
Perfect place close enough to the city centre”
The place is walking distance to the city centre (if you are a fan of walking like me) . not crowded and with your own view of the sea. Wifi was not working when we came but we didn't mind. Staff are friendly and accommodating.
Great place with a great view a bit far from town”
We stayed here for three days and were really happy to be greeted by Olga every time. She helped us with everything and when the stove dis not work it got fixed the next day. Great view from the hotel at the sunset and really nice porch to sit on. The only problem is the long walk from the town. It is sometimes hard to get a tricycle to take you to the property and the wall from the town is 15 minutes. We would come again to this place!
Escaping City Noise”
The place is situated quite far from the town proper but it is what we were looking for. We wanted to escape the noises of city life that is why we chose a location/accommodation just meters away from the sea. Found this villa and it was a great deal. Means of transportation from the villa to the national road is by tricycle. IF you want to go the market, bank, etc, you need to ask the caretaker to arrange a pick up but it will only be from the villa to the main road. You will need to take another tricycle to the market which will cost Php50.00 per ride. Though there was a day that we do not have electricity, the experience is very relaxing.. AC is very much working.. No wifi which is a good thing for us.. We had lunch on the garden over looking the helicopter and cadlao islands.. Water are clear and sea creatures are seen even on the shallowest, rockiest part.. Will definitely be back..
Very nice staff. Nice view”
It's an old house but very private. Nice view outside. Only thing is it's kind of far from the city proper. We enjoyed our stay. :)
Property needs to invest more Transportation for Guess. ”
If you are looking for a quiet place, this is the place to be. A bit of a set back is the commute. The only means of transportation is via walking 15 to 20 minutes to get to town or wait for the properties customize tricycle service. The walk is not easy, especially at night. The road is rocky and can be muddy if it rained. To get to the beach villa, you must pass a narrow alleyway, so the tricycle is tailored too fit. They only have one tricycle, so it is a bit tricky when you have more than three people in a group. The Housekeeper was very accommodating. If you need Laundry service, you will pass by a place that can do your laundry for 50 pesos a KG. The Housekeeper charged 120 pesos a KG so shop around. Beware of Room # 1; the Air Conditioner did not work the entire three nights we stayed. They provided two Electric fans, but it was still disappointing. I would go back if they can add additional tricycle service to their establishment. Half of the group was walking all the time, while the other three would ride the tricycle to save some time. Travel time to get to town by tricycle is 10 minutes and another 10 minutes to get back to the Beach Villa. There is a total of four beach villa with one service that can fit a max of three people. You are forced to walk to town if you want to make your tour on time.
far and no proper service to go in and out of caalan”
the place was so far. we tried calling the number they put in agoda but its not working. so ended up riding a trike but just from the port to that laly abet cost you 100 pesos the trike said you only need to walk more than 5 mins cos only small trike can get in that small entrance to caalan. but it was a lie! at least you have to walk 20 mins and you have to pass in a cemetery it can be hard if its raining its so muddy. service they have only for 2 person so if other guest will take it you have to wait 40 mins minimum. we told the caretaker we have to check out early as we have to go coron and ship leave at 6am. we agreed 5:30 pick up but we keep waiting no service had to woke her up and then she called the service ended up leave there at 6am. and feel so sorry for the driver cos his trike just broke down and we forgot to say thank you for all his effort. we ended up again begging from montenegro crew to let us board as we were 15 mins late. if you stay here just remind the caretaker and maybe wake her up at 5am to be sure if you have to catch 6am boat.
Lovely quiet apartments just outside of El Nido town ”
We had a few hiccups when we first arrived due to typhoon rain which left us unable to reach the apartment (the dirt road to get to it was flooded), but luckily La Salangane were able to put us in a room in their other hotel and then took us to the apartment the following day. The apartments are a 20 minute walk to El Nido town or they provide a trike to take you to and from - be warned though, the journey is a bit hairy!! The view from the apartments is lovely and Marianne was really helpful and helped us book a trip, motorbike and trike to the airport.
