We'd been recommended this place by friends who paid 500php per night during low season. We ended up paying 800php as we were there in peak season - El Nido is generally more expensive than other places on Palawan but this was overpriced for what it was. Bamboo walls of the hut were very thin and the bathroom was dirty...

We spent a few days here in september, our expectations weren't high, which was a good thing. You wont be staying in your room anyway so It's good for a touchbase point for your island hopping, night partying or inner city tour since it's smack right at the center of town which could be a bit of a disadvantage too...

Room was quite small and dark, we had a nice outside area which was good for drying stuff after island tours. Tours through the front desk were expensive, quoted 1400p for a tour we got for 1000p, and weren't very helpful in letting us know how to get water refills. If you can check out Mam Olsen's place nearby, only...

We expected it to be somewhere quiet but it is just off the common road. Anyway, it was okay for us. The room we got was at a new building and it was facing the road. It might be too noisy at night but we were too tired to notice. They helped us book a massage service and other things....

Terrible lighting, and claustrophobic rooms. BEWARE: MOSQUITOES AND BEDBUGS Also very disrespectful staff and manager. This place seriously made the trip less enjoyable. If I were you I'd just look for another place.

We got a fan room with 2 single beds and a bathroom. The room was spacious with a small table in between the 2 beds perfect for charging all your gadgets. The shelves/closet were also adequate to hold all our stuff. It has a veranda plus an eating area. When you wake up in the morning there is a thermos...

You get what you pay for. I paid for a cottage for US$12. Yes, the place is very peaceful and it feels amazing to wake up and go out of your room with a huge cliff towering over you. Bed is not bad for the rate. However there were a lot of mosquitoes at night and the toilet was dirty....

Very large a/c room with double aspect shame the only views were surrounding building works, and had to climb over building materials to gain access to room. Outside the room was a little sitting out area but fronted the main road and covered in road dust. The room was well overpriced for location at 1500 per night. However that said...
