            We liked the hotel and perfect location right near the pier and restaurants. Though no hot water, only warm due to solar power, which was fine because it's hot outside. What we didn't like was the town, it was like a city, expensive, and terrible food. Though we rented a motor bike and went to other parts of the island which were very nice and I would stay outside the town next time, highly recommend that option. not downtown el Nido. We went on an island tour which was nice, but many boats.

            Affordable no frills downtown hotel”

            Rooms are spacious, looks clean. There is free wifi, with repeaters on each floor. In the room there’s A/C, a ceiling fan, a TV, a dresser table and some wooden chairs. Some reviews mention dirty water and a funky smell. There is a slightly funky smell which you’ll get used to so it’s not a big deal. Water from the faucet was not that dirty in my opinion, probably depends on the supply. In each floor there is a common area where you can fix yourself free coffee and tea. Each floor has a balcony area, the 3rd to 4th floors have a great view of the bay. There is no elevator, only stairs. There’s intermittent power interruptions (not the hotel’s fault). For those times, there’s a generator that usually kicks in, you won’t be able to use the A/C but the ceiling fan should work. Location is great. Walking distance to the pier where boat tours start, lots of restos around, located centrally downtown. There is a small ref in the lobby where you can buy mineral water, but there are small convenience stores outside also. We usually leave the keys in the lobby when going out. We stayed 3 nights, rooms weren’t proactively cleaned while we were gone. It didn’t matter to us since we weren’t really messy, but some people might be looking for regular room cleanups. It’s a place to stay and sleep, nothing fancy. Prices are affordable. View at the top floor is great.

And very friendly staffs..I wud love to stay there again.

            Worth what you pay”

            The price is reasonable. I think it’s worth it. You are in the heart of Ël Nido. Walking distance to the harbour (boats to Caron and other destinations) and where all the island tours start. It’s very busy. A lot of bars and restaurants. A bit of crowd noise from the room but that didn’t bother me at all. Wifi was really good and free. The cheapest room is pretty small but the deluxe one is a nice size. Tv channels were pretty fuzzy. Massages right next door and another cheaper one a few stores down. A gym to work out at also very close. There weren’t too many hotels to chose from in this area. I’m happy I chose this one.

            Location and facility was great with the exception of no hot water and some lame excuse about the sunshine. You have electricy, you can heat the water.

            Located in the town proper, surrounded by really good options for dining, drinking/hanging out, massage, and tour groups. The room we got had a queen bed, and the mattress was OK. The hot water in the shower was wonky but works nevertheless. Could work some more on improving the drain of the toilet and bath. They give free, unlimited coffee and tea and drinking water, which is a plus. There's also a large balcony fronting the cliffs, so you will be able to relax after a long day.

            Great location in El Nido town. The street the hotel is located on has all sorts of shops, restaurants, bars and excursions plus it is the street behind the beach. The room itself was small but it did the job. Aircon was good. Don’t expect a really nice room but chose this place is location is most important to you.

            We stayed in a deluxe room on the roof costing 2000php (booked in person). Pros; Good central location, Spacious, clean room, When we visited, WiFi was the best we found in El Nido - stable and 1Mbps download - enough to stream half decent video Rooftop has great large balcony space and a table/seating Cons; Shower on this floor is cold and had an issue that should have been fixed, Quite basic for the cost While the balcony has a good view of the sea, the view from the room was only the balcony
