We stayed in Angelnido for 7 nights and our stay was very relaxed. I cannot agree more with all the positive reviews below which are corresponding to the truth as well as the position of the beach, the position of the location, the distance from the center etc. ( what you want to do at night in the center anyhow is a mistery as I have found the village very rural and basic therefore we just ate there and went to bed after that).
We stayed in Cottage 1 which I believe was the one which had the bathroom problems ( from a review below) but the problem now has been solved and no other signs of mushy stuff is around or near the walls.
Bathrooms are clean and simple, you have warm water when the electricity is on and wireless works fine as well, bearing that you are in a remote place and some connections might not always be at their best. You don't come to El Nido for a holiday made of bars and restaurants or great shopping and if you expect this, you will be very disappointed. But if you are looking to explore an island which is still under development, with a great nature, great beaches, this is the place for you.
All staff at AngelNido is kind. I like the fact that Matteo, being Italian, is always responsive, you can call him and he answers the phone and you can rely on his word. With some locals, it simply doesn't work like that, as they have a different vision or habits and I found Matteo to be very trustworthy.
Matteo has arranged for us a private pick up from the airport in Princesa and to the airport. He is always attentive to the requests of his clients and one day he has also brought us to a beach tour. Breakfast is simple but cheap prices. In near Cadlao resort you can have a proper more complete breakfast for more than the double offered by Angel Nido so it is up to you. We sometimes had breakfast at Cadlao, sometimes at Angel Nido.
It is true that there is no lounging area where you can stay but for a few words you are welcome to sit by the main porch where Matteo and his family welcome you. This place has sort of ' family' business rather than a cold reception therefore if you don't mind to be treated as such,this is the place for you.
If you want your own privacy, you can have it also.
Angelica their little girl is a real entertainer and you will spotted her around playing with their lovely dog Angelo or simply coming to you questioning about anything. I would not stay anywhere else in El Nido as I have found the locations in the city center to be a bit doggy and not very clean from an outside point of view while at Angel Nido I felt safe, clean and with no worries if I paid the right amount because I am sure we did.
Cadlao resort is near by in case you want a good massage ( more expensive than those in the city where you will just be placed on a bed-clean? mh- while in Cadlao you will do a massage under a lovely hut, with the sound of the sea).
