We stayed at Tandikan for 8 nights and enjoyed our time. It was very cheap and very basic. It is a large step above a hostel but one of the most breathtaking views you could come across in El Nido.
The porch looks out over one of the most scenic views in the world and you could sit there for hours taking it in (which we did).
The family that runs the place is always there with a smile on their face and wants to help. We booked Tour A through them and they got us a great discount. If you have questions about the town they are pretty knowledgable.
This is in El Nido, so the electricity does go off at 6AM and sometimes does not go back on until 4pm (but mostly 230ish), and there is no generator. This is not a problem unless it is very hot and you do not have the use of the fan.
The one suggestion I do have for the place is they put screens on the windows to protect against mosquitoes or supply a mosquito net for the room.
Other then that, this place is definitely a place I would stay again. You cannot get a cheaper beachfront spot in El Nido.
