“El Nido, Sands Inn budget but good”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 December 2011

My partner and I stumbled across the Sands Inn, when many others were booked out and the owner actually asked us whether we needed a room. We only paid 500 Pesos a night for a double room, fan, no en-suite. It was basic but clean and it's got a nice balcony over the ocean. Sometimes when the tide was high, we could feel the waves bashing against the walls of the building. The shared bathroom is also very basic, the toilet hasn't got a toilet seat but at least a flush. There is no toilet paper supplied but you can purchase this from the shop across. The shower was more dripping than flowing but there were bucket and scoop supplied. Quite efficient! We had free Wi-Fi but don't forget El Nido often hasn't got electricity. The Sands Inn seems to supply electricity how they feel.
This place is great for the budget traveler! We ended up staying 5 nights and it was a blast after coming from Manila's "Friendly's backpacker".
Generally I'd recommend not to book in advance. There are so many places to choose from when you get there and most seem pretty nice.
