“Great place in El Nido”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2014

Very nice place run by nice people. Valerie and Arnaud were so kind to us during the stay and made our experience great, despite having to change room on the second night due to the availability when doing the booking.

The whole process was great, from the booking to the stay. The hotel is very nice, with villas that are quite well taken care of, with all you may need, including a kitchen, and very clean. The breakfast is very good, and for a reasonable price.

Regarding the facilities, the views from the room are spectacular, the pool is great, and the location is good if you want to relax, as you are 10 minutes away from the town in a tricicle (if you want to walk, it is not hard to get there, and it would take you 30 mins) which should charge you around PHP 30 for 2 people.

They also have a shuttle service to/from LIO Airport (in El Nido), so don't miss it, as it is convenient and saves you a tricicle ride for approximately PHP 250 for 2 people.

Room Tip: Pool villa was great.

Out of all the places to stay in El Nido this is definitely the most unique and beautiful. We stayed in the cottage and it was perfect, the villas were all booked up, but in the end we preferred the location of the cottage. The view is absolutely beautiful and it feels very private.

We spent 7 relaxing nights at Ovelrlooking in Arnauld's new 2 bed villa.
The new villa is in keeping with the other 3 villas; beautiful view, high quality furniture and fittings, spotlessly maintained, etc. the villa is ideal for a family or two couples, as each bedroom is self contained with its own bathroom. The infinity pool is heaven on earth and we spent many afternoons watching the sun go down over Corong cornong from that vantage point.
The customer service is professional and friendly and nothing is too munch trouble. Breakfast is very good and priced very well.
We have stayed in El nido 3 times and Overlooking is by far the most chique, yes it's more expensive, but you do get what you pay for!
A big thank you to Valarie, Arnauld and all his staff.

Highly recommend this place for everybody, breathtaking view from every villa and cottage, comfortable, relaxing, hidden and private, silent, safety, full equipped, beautifully designed, unforgettable, have no words to describe it, just best choice in El Nido and it cost every peso you pay and even more!!! I can't forget feeling when you wake up at night, open your eyes and just can't believe that it's not a big poster in front of you, it's real!
We've stayed for 11 nights, and felt sad when we had to leave... I think I can stare at the terrace for ever and never get bored...
Stuff do their best, they're very nice and helpful, including security guys.
We travel a lot, and seen many places, but this experience was one of the best. We want to say great thanks Arnold for his great job!
Coming soon: new villa with 2 bedroom and private pool, it was under construction during our stay.
All the best, Arnold!)

Room Tip: Every villa and cottage is nice, every is enough private. Villas have kitchen at the terrace and bat...

We went for 3 nights as part of a 10 day trip celebrating our anniversary.

The staff were fantastic in replying to emails and arranging airport pick up even though our domestic flights from Manila were delayed 3 times....

When we arrived, we loved the view from our room. And how the set up had an outdoor eating area but the bathroom and bedroom indoors. Simple but beautiful!

Staff were always friendly and helpful. Anyone in town who knew we were staying there would comment about how nice the place was. We felt like we hit gold :)

The rooms were serviced well and the breakfast was delicious always, delivered to ur room and set up beautifully.

The only negative thing was that you had to get used to having small lizards in the room near the roof area. There was one in our room and two in the outdoor area of our room. At first I was worried and a little bit uneasy but once I got used to them being everywhere, I realised that they always stay high in the roof and never come near you or your things.

The hotel wasn't in the middle of town but it was only a 5 minute tuk-tuk ride that costs 15 pesos per person each way. So still cheap and easy to get around from it.

Really loved our stay here and will definitely be back to this hotel if we return to el nido.

We had a 5 night stay and had a wonderful time. We had cottage no 3 which I believe had the most amazing terrace and view.
We loved the local staff, they were so kind and welcoming and prepared the best fruit plates on the island for breakfast.
It has been all so beautiful that I can only join those folks here that are raving about this little place.

From the other side I am very critical and I do have some comments which might be useful for the management to improve:
- please have cosmetics (we were only provided a promo pack on shampoo on our arrival, the rest nothing)
- please have more hangers available, to place towels, hand towels in the bathroom.
- please provide more towels (they only give 1 per person) , at least a hand towel
Small details count!

The only thing which annoyed me a bit was the often presence of the management & friends in the only common area (in front of the pool where you can go to use internet) having conversations in French, and eating mouth watering food right in front of your eyes. BUT: there is no restaurant in the place, you can only have breakfast. So this is why I found this very unprofessional and intimidating for the guests.

Room Tip: we stayed in cottage no 3. the view is really wonderful from there, but the bathroom is a shoer only...

We stayed for 4 nights here. This is the BEST ACCOMODATION you can ever get in El nido town though its just a bit far from the beach.We could just stay inside our villa for 4 nights without being bored because the place is just so BEAUTIFUL!!! Delicious breakfast, nice pool, big tv, good shower. Friendly stuff and very accomodating host. The only thing I can complain is the soft scratching noises at night which I think are mices from the roof.
