A nice place for your vacation”

Good staff, good food, nice tours offered

I arrived El Nido and called the owner at 4 am in the morning, but she still picked up my call,thumbs up. The room I ordered was a ocean viewed room available for 3 person,but she offered us a garden view cottage instead, the cottage was okay, including 1 aircon, 2 double bad, 1 single bed, one bathroom with hot water.Breakfast was good,bread,butter and jam first,after that was the main dish, one fired egg with something like tuna or blablabla, then the fruits.The surrounding was beautiful, you can sit in yard watching sun set/rise and feed the owners dog( I think her name was Number 9) or just chatting with somebody who came from other countries, free snacks are on the table. But one disadvantage for this resort is, it is relatively quite far from the town compare with other resorts, but the distance from the beach to here is not more than 20 minutes of walk.If you want a nice and quite place to stay and sleep, this one is your choice. So if you want to spend a vacation away from TV, laptops,or anything you try to run away from to have a good vacation,you can just click the booking button near by.

Nice place, Nice people ”

Lovely Staff, big and clean room

My friend and I stayed at Caalan for three nights and had three breakfasts included which were differents and good each day. The staff was very nice and gave us a ride to the center of El Nido whenever we needed. By walk, it's maybe a 15 minutes but it keeps you away from the noise of the town. Our room was big and they cleaned the restroom each day and changed our towels. We also had hot shower ! We had a misunderstood for the price of the room at first but it was easy to resolve the problem. The staff really want their guests to have a nice stay.

Service, Flexibility and Food

I spent three wonderful days at Caalan Beach Resort. Located at the end of Caalan Road about 5-10 min walk from El Nido town. The resort had a really homie feel, was quiet and had a amazing view of the islands near El Nido. Service and food was fantastic. I would highly recomment the tuna sandwich. Will return next time I visit El Nido.

Location, staff, quiet

I spent a very nice 5 nights here. It is a 15 - 20 minute walk from town, motor bikes can be hired, so it is a very quiet place to stay, away from the bustle of El Nido. We hired the owners boat, rather than go on an organised tour, which was much better, as you can choose your own itinerary. The owner is a friendly and competent woman, who can organise most things for you. Breakfast was very good, rooms cleaned daily, cold air con, and hot water. Highly recommended.

Amazing! The rooms are okay standard but the real deal here is the staff and the feeling of this place. Everybody in the staff treat you like family but with the performance of a concierge at a five star hotel. Wheter its arranging for transport, kayaks or helping you haggle the best prices in town. You pay for a room well worth its rent and you also get an invaluable service for free.

From the moment we arrived the resort we felt so welcome. Everyone's greeting you and the owner know the names of all the guests. The staff did everything they could to help us and make us feel at home, like driving us everywhere, arranging trips, transport etc. We also borrowed kayaks for free. Breakfast was very good, rooms simple but clean and well maintained, view from our balcony awesome! A little bit out of town but nice location by the sea and the staff will drive you everywhere (but just 15 walk from town). Highly recommended!

Paradise in the Philippines”

Service was incredible. The food was very good. The location on the water front is perfect.

Our stay was excellent. The staff are so friendly and helpful. They organized two island hopping tours for us that were both amazing. The second tour turned out to be a private boat just for us, at no extra charge! The resort is a bit far from the main city, but they provide rides whenever you want to go to the city so that wasn't a problem for us. I would definitely stay here again.

Quietness, staff, breakfast

For some reason they couldn't find our reservation done via Agoda but we were lucky to get a room. The place is nice, in front of the bay but very far away from El Nido town. 20 minutes walk without proper illumination. Our room was very basic but it was OK. Breakfast was great! The staff was helpful and joyful. Internet was weak and slow. Good value but too isolated for our taste.

We enjoyed how it was on the outside of town, but still close enough. The staff was truly amazing and it was hard to say good bye.

We extended our stay becuase the staff was extremely friendly and passionate to make your stay enjoyable. They serve you a home cook breakfast, will accommodate anything you would like to do, transport you into town on their scooter, or simple have a cold beer waiting for your arrival. I recomend you book your boat tours though them. We did a private tour and combined 2 tours into one and did some midnight squid fishing. I highly recomend both!

John was a really helpful owner who provided us with as many information as we wanted and even invited us for beers after finishing a nice kajak ride to another island. The only negative thing was that it always took pretty long to get food in the restaurant and that the restaurant and common room with games, etc. closed quite early.

What a mess ”

Owner lovely

I don not know where the good reviews come from. This hotel is way overpriced very run down and terrible location as its a long walk down a very dark pathway to get there as trikes can not go there. You even have to walk across the beach not easy with suitcases. On our arrival owner did not know about our reservation. We had to change room five times . First room shower didn't work and tap fell off wall sending water three feet across room. Unable to find any staff so had to plug hole myself till next morning. Engineer could not fix so offered new room. No lights working and falling out of ceiling. Third room was ok but filthy then told we couldn't stay there as already reserved. Fourth room shower not working. Fifth room was ok but air con not very good too small for room. After being in there one day we were asked to go back to first room as all now fixed. I refused as we were by then settled. Hotel needs a complete revamp. Often without electric or wifi so we're given candles. Asked for milk for tea none available. Only upside is owner is very friendly but in all way overpriced and should be closed u till rooms are all operational. Much better and much cheaper available by beach in town
