8/10 Very Good

Beautiful views and friendly staff
Such a great property. Staff was great, Anna was very helpful. Our room (15) was on the 3rd floor, all stairs, but the view on the balcony was beautiful. Bed was nice and firm, AC unit and ceiling fan was really good, but only thing that I had a problem with was that the shower drain was a little clogged and no one ever came up to unclog it (but that did not change my view of how nice the property was). Eating area was nice and open, but if I were to really be picky it would be all the cars that roam around the area cause I’m allergic. Another downside to the property is how to get there from the main road. A little rough but manageable. But overall I would come back and suggest it to anyone.

Absolutely beautiful property with awesome place to sit right in front of the water. Best view. We arrived very late, the property communicated with us quite well and arranged our pickup as it’s not accessible by car. They send a very cool little tricycle that drove us along the beach and down a narrow pathway to the property. Was fun and made it even more of an experience. Comfy bed and basic but nice room. Awoke to the stunning view and a nice free breakfast :) would stay again for sure

Very nice place when staying in El Nido
Very nice accomodation. Amazing food in the restaurant by a French chef. Well recommended. Just some troubles with the water pump during our stay, meaning there was no water for a few hours, but that’s part of the things that happen when travelling in a country like the Philippines and can’t really be helped. They are a little bit away from El Nido town, but provide a free tricycle to get to town and back, so that’s really not an issue.

Enjoyed !
Enjoyed our stay. We found it difficult to get to when we arrived, we weren't told to notify hotel but were lucky enough for a local to ring for us when they saw us walking with luggage. It is a fair but enjoyable walk to town or a very interesting bike ride across the beach.

Staff is very friendly and helpful. Room was clean but noisy. It is very difficult to get to the property, as not every tricycle can get there, so you have to walk another 10 min or call hotel to send them their tricycle which you have to pay for it. There no restaurant at the property, and all restaurants that are nearby are overpriced. On their leaflet it said free transfer when you checking out but as we found out free transfer is only from hotel to main road. As we needed to go to local airport, we had to pay extra.

The hotel is in a quiet area around 10-15 mins walk from town but it has its own tricycles and can drive guests to/from town. Rooms are quite basic but spacious. The restaurant has a beautiful view on the beach. It is not possible to swim in that area because the beach is rocky. Staff is generally helpful Overall pleasant stay but overpriced

8/10 Very Good

The place has a very nice view of the other island if you choose it on your booking. Beach is a bout few feet from the balcony. Can hear waves at night .Clean comfortable , has AC and electric fan in the room. Very nice people . The place is about 15-20 min walk to the main strip for eating and strolling around. It is only accessible by a small tricycle for the road is very narrow going there.
