It's cleared, confortable and in good location. They offered tours and trasfers in vans to Puerto Princesa. Nearby to the downtown to El Nido and the Port / Airport / Buss terminal

    Great hotel in great locatiom”

    Really enjoyed our stay here. The hotel is nestled in a beautiful garden. Rooms are spacious, the bathroom is really nice. A/c works great which is important because of the mosquitos. Staff was very nice. Loved the location a bit outside of El Nido but everything you need is nearby. Beach to watch the sunset just across the street.

    Location is along the main road which is easy for transfer pick up and drop off. Near restaurants and convenience stores. 5-10mins away from town proper. Phone signal is almost non existent. WiFi needs improvement as I could not connect. I hope they will include breakfast. Still we enjoyed our stay. Lovely and helpful staff.

    Novies is a simple little motel with beautiful gardens. A little out of the hustle and bustle of El Nido’s main town. Only 100m from the Tao tours check in office. Lovely staff. Great value for money.

    Lots of little rooms all tucked away off the main road means a pretty good nights sleep with little road noise , apart from the cockerels which are everywhere in Philippines so you can’t escape them , the staff where excellent , lots of great restaurants within 5 mins walk , a killer quite beach across the road and tour companies for trips in the Pop’s centre across the road ....everything you need is here ....wish they would upgrade to hot showers but for the price it’s a steal x ...even let me store bags , and have a shower late in the day after check out

    The place is beautiful however, it's not that clean.”

    We had the barkada room, it's very spacious with a kitchenette however, the room is not that clean when we arrive. It seems like they just chaged the towels and beddings. It has a kitchenette but we weren't able to cook or even boil water because their portable stove doesn't have a (butane) gas. Would still recommend it because staffs are friendly, location is nice and the place has a beatiful view of a garden. 😀

    We ended up staying here for a whole week while in El Nido. Lovely room with an amazing view of the surrounding islands and sunsets. Located close to lots of restaurants and not far from the main town. Staff were very helpful with arranging (and rearranging) tours for us. Only downside was no WiFi in our room but that is pretty common in El Nido, and good WiFi in lobby area.

    Staff were excellent, especially Maria - absolute star, good english and happy to organise any requirements. We had a room out the back. super quiet overlooking tge garden with a superb view of the bay, facing sunset. although not in El Nido proper, it was only a couple of kms to walk the trip. All things considered... best value for money going around in El Nido! Just to note, no wifi and pillows weren't the best. Bed was super comfy!

    Excellent. Great value for money. ”

    I am not sure why there are a lot of negative reviews. But when we went here everything was fine. Cheap hotel but worth the money. Water is clean, it was quiet in the place, aircon was cold, good breakfast, staffs are friendly. I like the fact that we can make a payment on check out date and not in check in date. It is just that the rooms don't have televisions and wifi. Staff should be more attentive in replying to text messages and inquiry. It was hard to contact them prior to staying in the hotel. But they did grant all my special requests and there are no mosquitoes even if there is no mosquito nets in our rooms. But you can request for one if you like.

    Our stay in Novie’s Inn was spectacular. Friendly staff, good food, ambiance and location. Although the room we booked is not the one given to us due an unfortunate circumstance they explained to us the situation and gave us a new comfortable room. We tried to rest upon arrival but there were men working downstairs and we can’t sleep. Good thing they suggested the beach front nearby where we can relax. Definitely will go back and book this inn once we go back to el nido!

    A perfect budget-friendly place to rest in after all tiring activities you can do outside. Only downside I saw was when we arrived around 2am and we had to wait a little too long because they couldn’t find our booking as we booked it through agoda. But everything else, perfect. We weren’t able to properly plan this trip so we were a little worried but they had everything we needed like shuttle services. Being on the main road, the location is ideal too. On the other side of the road are reastaurants and a store that sells food and necessities.

    Pros: Very friendly staff. Bungalows and rooms retracted from the street so almost no street noise. Complementary coffee in the morning. Choice of breakfast was fine. Cons. The wifi does not reach outside the reception area. Shower means just that ie. no hot water. Almost no water coming out of the showerhead in our bungalow. Food and alcoholic drinks are not allowed outside the reception area. Only one chair for the front porch.

    Nice quiet cottage in beautiful surroundings. The location is away from the noise of El Nido but close enough to go into El Nido you can walk it takes about 30min or a tricycle which is php 50. The staff are very welcoming and friendly and the wifi is fast! It does only have cold water showers. There is a beach across the road to watch the amazing sunset!

    A good place to stay when you’re visiting El Nido. Tricycle for 50 pesos to get into El Nido town. We stayed there twice and was happy with our stay. Good WiFi in the reception. The laundry was not so good but okay. Personal was nice. The breakfast was a bit expensive but good. Overall, for the price I really recommend this place. We would come back.

    All of the staff were wonderful!”

    Pros out weigh the cons. Great staff, location and decent price. Rooms are very clean, although a bit sparse. Maria is the best, answering questions and describing activities in the area. It is not right on the beach, but very short walk, and views from upper rooms are wonderful. Breakfast is not included, but they have very inexpensive choices that are just the right amount of food to get you started with your day. Only con is no hot water. This may be fine for other people, but I really only prefer cold water when I am in a shower that is outside in the heat!
