Away from the town center, this place was very relaxing, friendly and fun. We didn't get to use the pool, which i think was quite shallow but nice. The beach is empty, not a great white sandy one but nice to walk around and take a dip. There were some sort of small insects around, annoying but only one evening....

Our family of 4 traveled with another family and stayed for 4 nights. This place is a slice of heaven, secluded, 20 minutes away from the hustle and bustle of the small town of El Nido. The rooms are spacious and our view was spectacular. The pictures did not lie! The calm ocean view with rock formations was breath-taking...especially during...

We stayed for four nights, including christmas eve and christmas. This hotel is an oasis of calm and beauty, located 20min from the congestion and noise of El Nido town. The location is private, with no other tourist properties in the immediate vicinity. The view is of a bay with almost no activity on it and a beach that almost...

I usually only use TripAdvisor to criticize bad experiences, but this hotel deserves kudos. Location was good for us, but not ideal for everyone depending on your trip objective. It's 20 mins away from the town in a inexpensive Tuk-Tuk ride, but it's calm and quiet. Food was good (not amazing) but cheap. The service was INCREDIBLE. Only thing to...

We stayed at El Nido Cove for 2 nights in December 2016 during a trip around Philippines. The hotel is about 25mins by tricycle from El Nido town (200 pesos) and the staff will call a tricycle when you need one. Rooms are large with good bathrooms and well functioning airco. Clean and well maintained. (We had non working electricity...

We stayed at the resort for four nights. Such a good stay, it is a short scooter ride to El Nido town (15 mins) and with hiring a scooter from the resort (700p) it gives you easy access to get around El Nido to visit other beaches or bars. The service was great and the staff make sure you are...

I stayed here recently with my wife and a couple of friends. Rooms - ok rooms. Need a bit of updating as showers not great for women who may want to wash their hair as pressure not great. There are no telephones in the rooms and so contacting others rooms or reception is not possible. Wifi which is only available...

Pros: - Staff is very helpful, will assist you in any way they can to make your El Nido vacation more convenient - Good food - Place is beautiful and cozy - Rooms are well kept and clean Cons: - Wifi is only available in the dining hall (though you might be able to catch it in the nearer rooms)

First of all, I highly recommend you fly in directly to El Nido (rather than taking the long drive from Puerto Princesa) and arranging transfers with the hotel. The hotel is really nice and peaceful, with a fairly private beach. It is away from the hubbub of the main El Nido area which means it is immensely more relaxing. You...

We loved this hotel! The staff are great- so helpful and friendly! We especially loved Joey, the bartender/Jack of all trades. The hotel is slightly removed from downtown- but we actually really enjoyed the 15-20 minute trike ride through the island. We felt lucky to be removed from the busier downtown area- the escape to the hotel really felt like...
