For 900pHp a night it was perfect, we walked in and booked the day before to move from a different hotel. The "cottages" woven huts were very cute to look at, inside basic but what you need, a bed, a toilet and a fan. It's not a 5 star hotel so don't expect that. Enjoy chilling outside on the balcony...

Maybe I'm a little harsh with my review here, but I feel that this place don't really deserve 3,5 stars and that's why I give them 2. If you don't care about how clean the places you stay in are, then this might be an option. But to me it was just too dirty. The toilet smelled really bad and...

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....

This Nipa Hut Style accommodation is the best for comfort. Living like a local. The place is equipped with a fan or an airconditioner room. They have a mini balcony wherein you can lounge, relax, or listen to the nature. They Nipa Hut also has a washing area outside so you can wash your clothes. They can also cook for...
