“Good basic accommodations”
Reviewed 2 December 2013

We were placed at the first cabana on the left, which was awesome. The view when you wake up is just great. Our stay was enjoyable and it was a good experience overall. Not sure about the rooms, but when you stay in a cabana, your breakfast will be served at the veranda. Breakfast is pretty standard. They can arrange tours and transfers for you. You will shoulder the Paypal fees for the downpayment.

It is worth repeating that there are no ATMs in el Nido, and the electricity is not on for 24 hours. But the place is great nonetheless.

Room Tip: Beachfront cabana for 2 persons

We really like Entalula as a young couple looking to take part in the island hopping, diving and eat at local restaurants. It is well priced and came well recommended here so no real surprise. Read all the review and we echo the same.

The van from Puerto Princesa is 500 PHP to El Nido to bus terminal. Pay no more or you're being cheated. Or go by Cherry Bus for 300 PHP. The hotel staff will give you all the advice you need and price to pay for things. Negotiate every price and don't be shy about it. Tours were the only thing we were not able to negotiate down, otherwise bargain away!

See tips below for more. Thank you Entalula for a great 4 days :)

Room Tip: Room 4 has the best view, power off from 6am till 2pm so plan accordingly, buy snacks directly from...

the couple (i just assumed) running this place treat you like family, they're adorable! nice value for money. get on their good side and you might get free instant coffee and bottled water. :-) the rooms on the 2nd floor are a bit small but they do the trick.

Me and my wife stayed there for a few nights and it was very nice. Staff is very helpful, great breakfast every morning, nice rooms and the best view ever with a beach just a few meters away and the sea with spectacular green mountains can take your breath away. They also arranged island hopping for us and VAN trip back to Puerto Princesa. I recommend this place to everybody. Thank you guys.

Room was clean but shower is so small. Staff were always smiling and accommodating. We had a great view since we got the middle room on the second floor, other rooms were blocked by the roof of the cabanas. You can hear the ocean at night but since the house is accessible via main road, you can hear some vehicles passing by.

Room Tip: choose the middle room (rm 4) on the second floor for a great view!

We stayed in a standard room at the second floor. The room is so small. The shower is also small. Noises from outside can be easily heard inside the room which is very irritating and annoying especially in the morning. Nonetheless, the resort has a very nice view and great staff! The room also has their own vault. check my trip in El Nido at www.TravelPilipinas.com

we've been here last may 8-11. they greeted us warmly. the view of our room was so nice.our room was located at the second floor and its a middle room. so we can really see the view of the mountain which u can see at the picture of entalula here.. very accommodating. the room was well lighted. just remember that theres no electricity here at a certain time of the day in the whole town of el nido. Well the son of the owner will tell it to you via email about the no electricity time schedule. well for us it was not a problem since we are out and having the island hopping. theyve been so nice for my request here to have a hot water for my tea every night. they have a laundry service too. they have wifi. ms. emy is like my mom always asking our needs what we will have to bring and everything. so it was a very pleasant stay here. there are internet cafe around the town.. souvenir shops, market and tattoo shops nearby. this is beach front, big rooms. i definitely recommend it to everyone.. i will definitely stay here when i get back to el nido next time...

Room Tip: have the middle room at the second floor.. great view and big room for my friend and me.
