We enjoyed our stay! The place was well maintained and felt cozy and homey. There was a nice view of the beach/sea from the veranda of the room. Good service from the innkeeper., she even assisted in booking our transport back to Puerto.

Very comfortable! Although the hotel does not have any own restaurant, but it is situated in front of a very nice restaurant, so it was not an issue.

Really fantastic hotel, super clean, easy access to everything, right on the beachfront. The only down side was there was no wifi access during my stay.

Will reconsider other places next time”
Receptionist wasn't that welcoming. Seems to be in a hurry. Room was ok, towels have some weird smell. Shower head probably need some cleaning. Shops and restaurants located around. Although next to the El Nido town beach, the beach itself is probably not that clean.

Average Stay”
Location
The hotel location is good right in town near the beach and pier with lots of food options. We received the room on the first floor next to the check in counter. It was small and the bathroom seems in need of maintenance. Since the room is next to check in, you can hear people outside and they can hear you so it's not very private. The staff is helpful when they are there but on Sundays the usual staff is off and it's difficult to get help. You can probably get cheaper prices if you walked in compared to booking in advance but the prices are ok for a confirmed room. Don't expect too much since this is not a full service type hotel but more of a guest room in someone's house.

Location, price, breakfast.
Good size room although a bit tired but we spent most time outside. The view is top notch, probably one of the best in el Nido and you are close to the action. Breakfast is good, you have 4 choices and its cooked on request. The manager and staff live there so it can get a bit noisy at times. A couple of nights someone was being quite loud and we thought they should have kept the volume a bit down for consideration to the guests. But overall a good stay for a decent price.

Staff, location, cleaness
It is not a real hotel. It is a house with 3 rooms,it is nice, clean and with really nice staff. Our stay was ok, and the conditions of the rooms are above the standard in El Nido town. It is only a Bed and Breakfast, and it is like a home environment more than a Hotel.

There were ants everywhere...”
The breakfast cook was very nice and she made me delicious food. The hotel is in an ideal location close to restaurants and it's right by the water.
When I first arrived to the hotel, no one was around. I waited for 10 mins downstairs before I just walked up and said hello a few more times. I checked in and had to carry my luggage up a narrow flight of stairs. When getting to the room, it was no clean and it was rather dingy. After setting my bags down, I started to notice baby ants crawling around. Pretty soon, they were crawling all over my items set in the bookshelf and on my luggage which was sitting on a chair. I had no food in luggage. I don't know where these came from. I was forced to empty out my lugagge and constantly spray it with bug repellant in hopes the ants would stay away. The showers were also pretty dirty and needed a good scrubbing. I would NOT recommend this place and will NEVER be back.

Perfect room in El Nido”
Great view, central location, adorable staff
This little B&B was perfect for our first days in Palawan. We booked a room with a view/balcony and we were not dissapointed. As the house is in front of the sea, bring your ear plugs if you want to sleep tight :) The Pura Vida Inn is in the very center of El Nido but calm (only a few rooms), the breakfast was delicious. A special thanks to the staff who was adorable with us. They have a tour activity as well (island hopping, ...)

If you come to this "hotel"(family house), i just recommend to stay at the beachfront View Room with balcony but It's expensive for a 2 star "hotel". Friendly staff, breakfast is good (omelette specially), be advise, DO NOT order tea or coffee, facilites, diving, tours, restaurants nearby.

Very small room...deceiving advertisement in the Internet...not worth our money, too expensive for such a poor accommodation...will never recommend it

Good, but overpriced”
Balcony over the water, central location, breakfast served on the private balcony
Good: 2 of the rooms have a private balcony with a fabulous view over the bay. On request breakfast will be served on the private balcony. Location is very central. Room is functional and clean. Neutral: Beds are a bit short. If you are taller than 190cm you will not fit. Waves hit the front wall of the building and impact can be felt through the whole building sometimes. Negative: The price is considerably more expensive than most other Inns in El Nido. And the price of this Inn is equivalent to the prices of resorts elsewhere. But for an Inn (without any facilities) we found that price much too high.

Room with nice view with family running the hotel”
Nice view and clean, nice room
I stayed 5 days in deluxe beachfront room and the room was all clean, nice and modern. Not big room, but it had all I needed and bathroom was very nice. The view to ocean looks good, although the beach itself isn't much in El Nido. And there isn't direct access to beach from the room. Family running the place was nice too. But room was quite overpriced and the biggest issue for me was that, the room is just next to the kitchen of family. I felt it weird to walk through their kitchen every time I left the room. Otherwise, no big complaints, all worked well on this place.
