We stayed in one of the rooms that wasn't ocean facing for 6 nights. First few nights ok, but then as minimal air flow through the room, we found it constantly felt damp, the bathroom smelt, no fly screens on the windows so Mosquitos were a bit of a problem.
We had a fan room only and with limited electricity(El Nido everywhere) can be a struggle.
No flushing toilet, but that wasn't an issue, just a basic bathroom.
We found it difficult to contact them to try to make a booking in advance.
The location is great, the 'Tour Boats' tend to start and finish the day right out the front, it is a clean and reasonable section of beach at the front with a small verandah area looking out over some beautiful scenery. The front verandah is a great place to enjoy the simple, but nice and varied breakfast they prepare and a great place to down a beer at days end.
We did tour A and C through them, they have their own boat and the guide and boatmen were great and the food was some off the best we had that was served for lunch on tour.
We also hired a kayak from them.
Its reasonably cheap and very basic in a fantastic location. We would stay again if for 2 to 3 nights, but if we were staying longer we would look for something a bit more 'Airy and fresh'
