    Great stay, everything you need can be arranged at the lobby, last minute tours, transpo, bike rentals and even food. Front desk are very helpful, with access to the beach and parking, the downside is the location a bit far from the main tourist hub, but you can ride a 100php tricycle or stroll along the beach. free breakfast is good with free coffee all day, but a water dispenser will be of great help for those on a budget. The room however is kinda dim, but is clean and comfortBle, overall value for money

    Pleasant Stay”

    St. John Island View exceeded my expectation of a pension house with fantastic location/view and sound accommodation, not to mention the attentive and caring gestures extended by the staff. My only suggestion for improvement are to change the getting-worn-out towels, linens and to fix the air con in our room which was already creating disturbing noise. However, overall, recommended for good service and value for money. Thanks!

    Well, we stayed there twice before moving to Desert Rose and I can say I was really disappointed. It is true that the building is big and there are balconies and a nice terrace, the breakfast is also good and some of the staff are friendly. But, first night we had the basic double room which was very unpleasant so we booked the deluxe one for the second night. It was also unpleasant. The cleaninless is not perfect, the bathrooms and showers tend to not function but pour brown dirty water from 9 till noon (because the staff thinks that everyone is outside in tours etc, which is not always the case). The wifi functions almost nowhere. Well, unfortunately I am glad we moved to another hotel and I hope you get those reviews more serious.

    Massive disappointment ”

    •staff friendly but no professionalism •very poor breakfast. Our order repeatedly wrong. Staff didn’t understand us apparently when we mentioned this. You have to order breakfast the night before and specify a time (which is no problem) but we were woken up 2hrs earlier than we had ordered it for and it was sitting upstairs on a table cold (not covered over). •The bedsheet was extremely thin and not big enough for 2 people. •Ordered pizza through hotel and were charged more than the menu stated •Constant noise, building pulsated for extremely loud aircon units. •this was by far the most expensive place we’ve stayed at during our travels in Asia and it was one of the worst. Definitely overpriced, we wish we’d stayed in Port Barton! •Dissapointing tour, didn’t included half the places specified in the hotel information booklet and there were a few hidden costs. We did Tour A and were both violently sick all night after it. Be Careful of the food.

    Dear Sydney, Thanks for taking the time to leave a review. Indeed, our employees are all friendly. We try to maintain the highest standard for our service, but clearly that’s not what happened here. We are very sorry to hear about your experience in our PENSIONNE particularly in the confusion on the breakfast and thin bedsheets. We just wished that you could have asked us to provide you with one that will make you feel more comfortable in any time during your stay with us. Nevertheless, we will try to improve on that. We will let the restaurant owner and the travel agency aware also of your concerns for them to be more specific in the tour details and pizza price(which you have paid directly to them)and also for food handling to make sure such will not happen again.if you give us the chance, we will definitely win you back.

    Basic little place. 5 min walk to not very nice beach. 20 mins walk to Corongcorong town. Close enough to everything if you don’t mind exploring. Staff seem led to hate their job but cooperated when we asked questions. Wifi is terrible/nonexistent. Breakfast is bad. Overall: a fine place to store bags and sleep in.

    Dirty!!!”

    To bad I cannot post photos here, but let me summarized for you: 1. Towels = dirty rags (I wound dry my dog with them) 2. Water pressure = none. You cannot flaunt the toilet. 3. Water again = brown color from all the faucets (sink, shover & the bucket thingy also) 4. If you like spider man the movie you’ll be in a treat = spider webs everything whew on the ceiling. 5. WiFi ? = sure from midnight to 6am 6. Location = not near everything. So, do yourself a favor and pay more (here it’s expensive also, not sure why) and get a better place to sleep with CLEAN TOWELS & RUNNING WATER. Been touring Asia for almost 3 months and this is the less clean place that we’ve stayed.

    Reviewed December 23, 2018

    Dear Mihai, Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry that your 3 nights stay with us is not a good experience. I wish you still managed to enjoy your other activities. We do clean rooms daily. How i wish you could have informed us or show us the spider webs while you are still here so that we could improve our services to you. I'm sorry for the towels we run out of good towels that time due to the bulk of guest and rain but such old towels are clean. We are using deep well water that's why its not as white as its original.Just the same we are thinking of possibilities to resolve that problem by probably using colored towels instead. About the water sometimes we do experience a little muddy like water when we run out of water in the tanks but for at least 15 mins only and will return to white again. We never run out of water during your stay, nevertheless, we will investigate on that. Our apology also as a matter of policy we asked for payment even you arrived late that made you mad.

    Near the beachfront with amazing views of the El Nido islands”

    The place is near the beachfront of Brgy. Corong Corong where you can enjoy sweeping views of the El Nido islands in Baciit Bay. The beach is accessible via a 4-5 minute wak from the place. There are a handful of good places to eat along thea beach, special mention to Panorama restaurant where you can lounge and sip a selection fruit juices or drink coffee while watching the beautiful sunset. Be sure to be at the beachfront by 5-6pm to catch the wonderful view. Honestly our room was good for a night’s stay, as we headed to Lagen Island Resort the next day for our main trip. The bath towels though were colored brown and seems to need replacement. The airconditioning was good and the free breakfast was good enough. We would recommend this place for backpackers :)

    Amazing staff and great value for money!”

    Super B place. We had an amazing 4 days of stay in this place. It's just far from the town proper, but that's not a problem because you can ride a tricycle or rent a motorcycle for 500/day. They also arrange tours for an affordable price. On our last day we need to leave the place at 5 a.m. and to our surprise they prepared two sandwiches for us before leaving since we can't take our breakfast for that day. If will be back in El Nido, we won't have second thoughts staying here again. I highly recommend this place.

    A short but nice getaway in El Nido”

    The hotel is located in Corong Corong, just a few minutes away via tricycle to the town proper. I've enjoyed the location, as there's not much crowd here and is away from the busy area. There is also a shortcut to Marimegmeg beach, and it's just also a few minutes from Las Cabanas where there are several activities you may want to enjoy. I'd like to mention most would be the staff, they're very helpful and polite. They provide information that can help you in your trip. You can always easily approach them. As I'm traveling alone, I did appreciate how they made sure I'm looked after and how they answered my questions well. I'm afraid I didn't get their names, but the ladies in the reception deserve to be mentioned.

    Our one of the best accommodations”

    Thou St. John is quite far from downtown, it is okay for me coz i want a quiet and a scenery of nature everytime i wake up. I availed a family room for 4pax in very affordable price since i made a reservation around 7mos. in advance thou we are actually 5pax coz of a baby so upon arrival they upgraded our room to deluxe family room for 5pax with no extra charge, what a bonus one! and situated on the ground floor which is the room #1. The staff were very responsive to our needs and request, the breaksfasts are good with many options and you will have it on 3rd floor. They clean the room everyday without telling to do so unless you dont want ur room to be cleaned just inform the frontdesk officer. The place is near to Las Cabanas and also there is a sari saring store across the street. They also provide a space on side of the building where you can hang your wet clothes. St. John Island View Pensionne is really beautiful and a cozy homey hotel, and im happy that i made a right choice. What you see in the picture is what you can get. Thank you St. John and its staff for unforgattable amazing experience! Till next time.
