A true home away from home”

the location, the accommodation and most specially the extremely accommodating and flexible people of the place

I was extremely hesitant to book this hotel since there were no reviews about it. Still I thought why not give it a try since they were offering something so reasonable...so we checked in...no hassle, the villa that we got for 2,500 pesos was unbelievably clean and spacious, it is located in corong corong which is really far from the city center (in a good way)...peaceful, with magnificent scenery from the veranda of the villa that was given to us, very accessible to the center and to the "swimming" area. I'd say that this "inn" is far better than the previous hotels that I checked in before here in El Nido. The owners of the hotel were very accomodating and flexible. Since dining out in El Nido is the ONLY option that you have since most of the hotel owners are not as accomodating as Ms. Rose who with very short notice agreed to cook out bought "fish" for dinner. The kids did enjoy our 2 nights stay in this "inn"...I wonder if they can change it into something else. The villa that we got is extremely well maintained so no mosquitoes and no bed bugs...I highly recommend it to those want to get the value for their money. Price was definitely the plus factor 2,500 for 7 people with breakfast! Unbelievable cheap!!!! Will definitely come back to Columbus Inn.

Great price and only 3Km from town.”

El Nido has over 200 properties that are not on this website. However Columbus Inn gives you exactly what you need when visiting El Nido. Air con. Comfortable beds. Towels. Cold showers which is actually great because it's warm in El nido. Free breakfast brought to your room. One of the cheapest places online. You do not need to pay anything over 1800 PHP a night here in El nido. Every place offers breakfast and aircon. Just find the right place. Tricyle takes 10 minutes and costs you 50 Peso. No noise in evening. Can see the sun set. I would recommend here for two nights. Then move into town.

Amazing stay. Best breakfast”

Our room at Columbus inn was awesome it came with a terrace were we ate the delicious breakfast which was pancakes and omelet. Short ride into el Nido town. We found it a nice location on the hill and away from the hustle and bustle of the streets. Hot water was great. Wanted to extend our stay but unfortunately no rooms

We stayed at the Columbus inn for three nights and it was a very pleasent stay. We loved the location so peaceful compared to the town. Every morning we had breakfast on the terrace which was really nice you could see the sea from there. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The wifi connection was a bit poor but once you restart it, it worked ok. Would stay again

Location is not the best, but good for El nido because you can not walk to the beach anyway. Rooms are basic but clean, the staff is so kind and villing to help and the best off all is breakfast and coffe that are wainting for you in front of the room.

Good enough”

I find el Nido to be overpriced for what you get in a hotel. So with that being said this is a good hotel but don't expect much for what you pay for. It's clean and minimal but does the trick.

Although we booked in the last min, we were not disappointed. House is quite newly built. Bathroom is clean and well equipped. Staff serves breakfast every morning in front of your room. We tried laundry service and it was also fairly priced. Wifi works fine outside of the room.

we booked the Family room for the first night of our stay, because nothing else was available. For a Family, I think the room is way to small. The other rooms in the Colombus inn are much nicer and cleaner. better book the double bed room.

Little out of town but ok”

Hilarious staff, the boys that work there are are trying to do the best they can, after you wake them up in the middle of the day :) There is a wake-up call service, the rooster that lives right outside of the rooms does a fine job but he chooses the time guests have to wake up. Breakfast is good, served wrapt in a plastic outside of the rooms. Easy to get a tricycle to town for 50p.

Quiet area slightly out of town”

The room was perfect - big bathroom, good water pressure (hot and cold), comfortable bed and good AC. The room was not cleaned once while I was there which was fine but some people may not like that. Breakfast was great - pancakes delivered to my room at the requested time. Wifi signal was non-existent in my room, very low outside the door but full bars three doors down. A little out of town but not difficult to get to at all.

Overpriced hostel”

The views of the Bacuit bay from the upper cottage are magnificent.

The accomodation is far away from the El Nido proper (it is nevessary to take a tricycle - 50 PHP / ride to the town or 30 PHP to the bus terminal). When we came a boy welcomed us and put our luggage into our room, said Bye and that was it. No info concerning the accomodation, breakfast or the town. Had to come down to ask what time was the breakfast served. The room was basic but okay. There was mould in the bathroom and the shower. Absolutely no room service is provided - no cleaning or garbage collecting. We even had to ask for a toilet paper. Breakfast is served on the table that is located before each room. They put it there at 6:30 am (already cold at that time). There is wifi connection but quite unudable due to its speed. When we were leaving we gave the key to one of the staff (family). Nobody said goodbye or thank you. Overally I would not recommend staying there as it is overpriced comparing to many accomodation possibilities (with much better hygienic standards) in the town proper.

decent place, breakfast heads up”

Enjoyed my stay. Only annoyance was breakfast. It's prepared ahead of time which is ok but you aren't really given a choice. If you are a foreigner, they assume you want pancakes. And if you are Filipino, you will get a Filipino set. It would have been nice to get a choice. TIP- Wake up soon after the ladies put the food out on each table but make sure its before the other parties wake up. Then, just go and swap out with the other parties if you don't like your breakfast set.
