    Near where tour starts, staffs were very hospitable and respectful. They always greet you and were always smiling. The only con is that it's far from the town and you have to ride a tricycle everytime. But other than that, it was such a great stay! We love this place!

    Nice place on the hill - staff are great ”

    If your looking for a inexpensive place to stay it's fine. The staff are very good, food is good, location is out of the main town but that means it's quiet. Easy walk to the beach. Beds are on the thin side - no hot water but really no need for it.

    Nice Place”

    Staff are friendly and approachable. Place is very near local bars and restaurants in Corong Corong. Quiet and relaxing feel inside compound. If you prefer to stay in a beachfront inn/hotel or near El Nido town center, this is not for you. You have to take a 5-10mins tricycle ride to reach the town center, which is not too much of a hassle. Room is ok, no hot shower but it's fine. Overall, a good experience.

    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

    Staff are very accomodating, they helped us to know some tourist spot in elnido. ”

    Side comment only regarding the air conditioner because they have limit to use it. When we stay our room around 2pm we have to wait until 4pm so they can turn on the power for aircon outlet. So for two hours we just use the e-fan it was bit hot that time but we understand they just want to save energy 😊overall very recommendable hotel we will book here when we have time to visit el nido again.

    The place is in a very good location, just 5-minute walk to the beach. Lots of restos around the area. Our room is clean and beds are comfy. We had a relaxing sleep because the fan and aircon are both working fine. The area is surrounded by a garden. The only cons are the big mosquitoes and the filthy water. It smelled of rust and color yellow. The owners should look at their water supply very seriously. I smelled of iron/rust for a week.

    Disgusting water, dirty rooms, we regret our stay.”

    We regret staying at this Inn and we will never recommend this to anyone. First thing is the WATER. It’s disgusting - color yellowish which smells like rust / sewer. It’s a serious concern which looks harmful to health, but Novie’s alibi was “it’s a normal thing in El Nido”. Not true because other commercial establishments doesn’t have the same water quality and as an Inn having paying guests, clean water is basic and a must! Second thing - room. We arrived late night at around 10pm, tired and sleepy, only to be given a room infested with ants. We were lucky to be re-assigned to another room which had few visits of bugs, ants, and FROGS on two separate occassions! To top it off, AC was not cold, failing backup power, no hot shower, toiletries, and housekeeping. We had to endure 3 nights on this property simply because it was already paid online. If I only knew these will happen, I would have chosen to pay few extra bucks to get a more decent stay with basic stuff working properly. If there’s a good thing to say about this Inn, it’ll be their staff which were all nice and accommodating, and good looking garden. That’s it.

    Staffs are excellent”

    This Inn is 10 min away to El Nido town so you have to take a tricycle for Php50 one way. Breakfast is great and staffs are excellent. Bring off lotion as there a lot of mosquitos in this area because all their rooms have a garden view. Basically, you need off lotion if you go to other beaches in El Nido especially during the late afternoon. Their internet connection is down throughout my stay so I need to go to the town to have mobile data and also because the Globe signal is weak in their area. Only Smart network is working.

    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.
