    Extraordinary place when you are looking for a private beach, best sunset and completly piecful atmosphere. The hosting couple and staff is very nice, welcoming and they can cook delicious see food :).On the other hand do not expect any tourist attractions, other restaurants or extra services.

    Beautiful lonely beach but dreadful resort”

    Cottages are okay but unkempt like the whole resort. Service is not available and we did not felt very welcome. The beach is very beautyful and not crowded, but it is very hard to get there ... The host was not able to organise a snorkeling trip or other activities. We were very disappointed!

    Reviewed February 18, 2018

    Hi Moritz, There was no snorkeling trip because of the bad weather. Can't you understand that it was dangerous to go on a boat trip when there's a bad weather? By the way, if you were expecting a red carpet welcome with all staff lined up with leis and cold towels, then you came to a wrong place. We are not a 2000USD per night accommodation for you to expect such things.

    DO NOT SPEND YOUR MONEY HERE”

    This place is horrendous. First off, you will not be met at airport by anyone associated with this place. You better rent an SUV to get there and you had best use a GPS with an accurate address or you will not find it. Secondly, the people who run it are money grubbers and will provide you with nothing of value. There is no bar because they have no ice. The free breakfast is a joke of scrambled eggs with only white bread; they have no toaster. You will have no refrigerator, so forget bringing your own food like I did. Signs are everywhere telling you what you can and cant do. No drinking or eating in rooms. Do not shut shower door, it will fall off. Do not charge phones etc we don't have the power, do not flush toilet paper it will clog pipes! Water on bathroom floor all the times.You will have no water pressure and no hot water and no resupply on towels. They even rented my room when I did not return for 5 or six days and justified it because we broke his rules on day one. STAY AWAY!!

    Reviewed February 14, 2018

    Hi Greg, You are full of lies. First, you were not a solo traveler, you were with a young Filipina who looked fifty years younger than you then you came back after few days with more girls. Second, we did not rent out the room while you were away with your girlfriend. When you returned, you sent your girlfriend to ask the staff if somebody used the room while you were away, maybe she didn’t understand it correctly and told you a different story or maybe you're jut making stories again. It is not true that there was no bar. There was bar and we had cold drinks. Your girl was ordering cocktail at lunchtime and we told her that we couldn’t prepare it because there was no ice available that time, maybe for her, NO ICE means NO BAR. How can you expect us to provide you with a full kitchen when you booked one room only especially when use of the kitchen is not part of what you booked? Unless you didn’t fully understand what you booked. We gave you 6 towels for 2 persons on day 1.

    Very poor service ”

    Very unhelpful staff. We were visiting Philippines for few weeks. Due to unexpected Mt Mayon eruption our flights to Palawan were cancelled so we immediately contacted Villa Verde staff and explained situation. We asked for cancellation and refund. Villa Verde staff was rude, unhelpful and replied in very aggressive way saying that we would not get anything back from them but also that we should have predicted Volcano erruption and likely flight cancellation before booking! Clearly just money orrientated so if you are looking at this property be aware that customer service is not existing. Such a shame

    Reviewed January 31, 2018

    Hi Przemyslaw, You were requesting for a refund even though your booking is non-refundable. We replied in a professional manner (and definitely not in aggressive way like you said) and told you that your booking is non-refundable (it is also stated in your voucher) therefore we cannot issue a refund especially when it was you who cancelled your trip to El Nido. You then started being nasty and sarcastic and threatened us that you will write a review. We told you that the warnings about the dangers of volcanic eruption were raised days before your scheduled check-in but you only notified us that you cannot arrive on the day of your check-in. Now you are accusing us of being money-oriented? We didn't do anything unfair or bad to you. It was you who were demanding to get your money back even though you know that it is not possible based on the policy,

    Horrible money grabbers”

    Paid on Agoda when arrived in El nido they text us telling us they have no van to pick us up so we need to hire a car at 3000p because no trikes will go there as the road was washed away . There was 8klm of dirt road with potholes deeper than the pool. No refund No Apology No negotiations instead nasty messages telling us they had told us cause it’s on their website!!!!?? BUT ITS NOT TOLD ON HERE???

    Reviewed January 28, 2018

    Hello Jason, Let me clarify this, the land transportation was not part of the room booking fee. You notified us that you need transportation approx an hour before your arrival at the town, our van was not available that time and we gave you transportation options and gave you the contact numbers of the transportation providers. We don't dictate the price of the transfer, it is the provider's price. Moreover, It was you who sent nasty messages, not us. As a traveler it is your duty to research about the place and everything related to the trip. There are information posted online, there's also a review here talking about the road and the transportation. So, please don't blame the property for all the things that you failed to do.

    Villa Verde Safari is my little piece of heaven on earth .. the view is magnificent. The place is very peaceful and very private. Other than the road condition to reach the place, for which we hired a private 4 x 4 vehicle to transport us, the place was a total gem for a weary person looking for some solitude. It was paradise !

    The best discovery when visiting Palawan and El Nido”

    This family owned and run property is a hidden gem, where you'd experience pretty much private beach and the ultimate relaxing retreat. Tucked away in Bucana area, that's the perfect location to detach from the busy life and sink in the tropical paradise. Enjoy a homemade meal cooked on order, and a freshly picked coconut straight from the palm trees. As the Filipino heaven doesn't necessarily come with all the modern world perks like full-time power or network reception, bring along your favorite book and offline entertainment. The road from El Nido is not perfect, though you can get in touch with the lovely owners to arrange transportation. They can help you to book tours as well! Highly recommend for all the nature and pristine beaches lovers out there!

    Un lugar precioso para estar solo con quien tú quieres”

    El lugar lo elegimos por la ubicación y las fotos, es una playa de más de un kilómetro de largo es de película y no hay nadie, de noche las estrellas como nunca. Si quieres relajarte y disfrutar de tranquilidad, este es tu sitio, las habitaciones muy bonitas,la comida que preparan deliciosa, pero no esperes muchas comodidades, de noche no hay luz eléctrica , la zona lo requiere, zona remota. Si no fuera así, entonces habría mucha gente y no sería tan chulo. Para llegar alquilamos una moto hay carretera desde El Nido pero los últimos 6 kilometros no están asfaltados. Los últimos 3km tienes que ir con mucho cuidado subidas y bajadas muy pronunciadas, tienes que saber conducir la moto. Si te animas es una pasada. Mejor pasar dos días, uno no da tiempo a disfrutar.

    We had a long beach for us alone. Sunset is fantastic and the sea is great at this place. There are sunbeds and hammoks in the palmtrees and everything is quiet and peaceful. The owner Adam is very nice and helpful. The tuna pasta is delicious! Also the staff is very friendly. We stayed in one of the bungalows and it is just a few meters from the beach. Great place to stay away from loud and crowded el nido.

    浜で見る夕陽は絶品です。そして充実した旅でした。しかしお薦めしません。”

    最初にお断りしておくが、この宿の前の浜辺から見る夕陽は何物にも変えがたいほど美しい。そして、主人のドイツ人のアダムさんも奥方のニンファさんも優しいし、真摯だ。個人的には多いに好意が持てる。しかし、いろいろ問題がある。3週間前にエルニドへ行くことに決めたため、宿を調べたら手ごろな料金の宿がここしかなかった。飛行機の都合もあり、6日間いることにした。しかし、エルニドの町から1時間近い距離なのでちょっと不安があったのは事実。だが、実際に行ってみるとホテルに行くには小高い丘をいくつか越えなければならず、急な坂道は舗装されず、水が流れた大きな溝がいくつも道を横切っている。ここに来るには4駆の車かバイクで来るしかないが、バイクはエルニドの空港から1500Pとられた。宿に頼んでチャーターを事前にすれば500Pで済むのだが、これをしていなかったのが間違いの始まり。施設はまず電気が日中はソーラーパワーだけで夜はジェネレータを使って午後6時から8時までしか使えない。だから、夜中に本は読めない。WiFiは2Gでかつ弱くテキストベースしか外とつながらない。携帯電話もメインの建物の二階に上がってある方角に向けてようやく何とか話ができる程度。レセプションに電話をしてもほとんどつながらない。食事はニンファさんの手作り(大体毎食200P)が食べられるが、メニューは多くはない。だから、6日もいるのは本来道理がない。2泊程度がMaxでははないか?なお、バイクで来た人で(私も後でエルニドでバイクを借りた)坂で横転して擦り傷を作った人は少なくない。あったロシア人はバイクの操作ミスで足の甲を膨らませていたので持っていた塗り薬を塗ってあげたが、骨に異常がなければよいと思う。いずれにしてもラフな道のバイク運転に自信のある方にはお薦めできるが、そうでなければ宿にお願いして送迎もチャーターしてもらい来ることをお薦めする。ただし、波の音と椰子の葉のすれる音とこおろぎの鳴き声を夜明け前まで楽しみ、俗世から離れたいならばここは絶好の場所である。

    Чудесно! ”

    Отель находится на диком пляже, пляж замечательный! В отеле всего три номера, поэтому, вы будете, скорее всего, одни наблюдать закат! Ночное небо! Рассвет! Берите мотоцикл в Эль Нидо или хороший байк, дороги и правда не простые, но зарядившись отличным настроением, всё получится! Отель сам вырабатывает электричество с помощью солнечный батарей и генератора, поэтому ночью света может не быть, будьте готовы! Также вода имеет свою систему очистки, и её нужно экономить! Это всё очень важно, иначе отеля могло бы и не быть! Если вы фанат цивилизации, вам не сюда. А если вы любите природу и готовы хотя бы сутки посвятить себя ей - смело бронируйте номер! Завтрак хороший, также отдельно можно заказать ужин.
