                Epic view at breakfast”

                Friendly staff, a lovely stroll along the beach to town or resort can offer a lift in. Great to rest and relax and not too far from town to dip yourself ino the night life. My cottage/bungalow was clean, chilled terrasse outside and enjoyed the alarm clock (the local rooster). With him I always knew when it was morning, afternoon and evening and middle of night. Superb place.

                Staffs are super nice! Especially Ate and Frankie. We’re supposed to check out 12 in the afternoon but they let us left our baggages while we were on a tour. We went back around 4pm. (They extended our time just to secure our bags) They even let us use their shower before we transfer to another Hotel. Wish we could extend our stay in this hotel but we already booked another place to stay.

                Great vacay”

                Kalinga Beach Resort is a great accommodation facility. Quiet place, where was a beautiful sea view. Especially the sunrise at breakfast. The resort is located near the center or restaurants. Our cottage in the garden was still kept clean. The staff was very nice, friendly, willing to help us with everything, for example when we needed to organize an island hopping or buy tickets for the ferry. We were satisfied and we would like to come back here.

                Over all experience was excellent. The staffs were very patient in our requests of tricycle service to get us where we want free of charge. Although there were no complementary shampoos, toothbrush and toothpaste, there was a store nearby to buy toiletries.

                Quality adequated to the price which we paid. They offer transfer to the center so it is very good option. Room was clean. If you don’t need 4* hotel this place is good. Staff is very helpful and friendly, breakfest is ok. The only issue are dogs barking in the night next to the room every night.

                The value for money is amazing as we got some friends in different places in El Nido for the same price they didn't get swimming pool, hot water and breakfast so go for it , we will definitely come back here

                Nice staff, quiet location”

                The hotel is slightly off the more buzzing roads of Buena Suerte- it's walking distance but we sometimes struggled to find tricycle drivers to take us all the way up due to the sandy road that connects it to the town centre (the walk is way quicker on the beach than on the roads). However, the slightly off-location next to the coast provides a quiet environment. The staff was very nice and helpful and kept the resort clean. The only downside was our bathroom which could have used a bit of renovation.

                We extended our stay here a couple times because we loved it here. We liked that there was a pool, breakfast was included and if we wanted to go into El Nido they would give us a lift and pick us up. It's a nice quiet location that we really enjoyed. Great sunsets too!!!

                Its a bit far to get there by foot, good thing they have a free shuttle services provided for guest. U can book your tours with them also, no need to go to town. They have limited food so i bought seafoods from the market, they will cook it for you.

                Nicely located resort.”

                We went to Kalinga as a couple. The resort is nicely placed outside El Nido so you can enjoy some quietness and have some fresh air. El Nido is about 10-15 min walk but they also have a shuttle service taking you there for free and bringing you back, if you a sim card to contact them. If you fly from El Nido afterwards, they provide you with a cheap transportation to the airport. I recommend to rent a motorbike from them to commute as you can pay in the end and you can avoid leaving deposits and passports to other places. The road to and from Kalinga is very nice and funny. Erner, the kind of maintenance guy plus driver and possible many other things, is super nice and kind, very respectful, polite and very helpful! He is the person any hotel should have! Elma, the owner, along with the other staff are kind and attentive. I would have expected however to see a little bit more effort from their side to make sure your stay is nice. Also, if other people are still eating or around you at the tables, I would perhaps not make so much noise while having the staff lunch. Guests are there to relax and enjoy. The place looks good, budget accommodation, right next to the sea. It is amazing to stay at breakfast and enjoy the beautiful view. The beach in front is not to stay because of the daily low-high tide. Nothing anybody can do about it. Unfortunately the wi-fi is quite bad and most of the times you will not be able to search for anything even though there is a connection, but that forces you to relax and stay away from virtuality. The water boiler sometimes works, sometimes not so well and sometimes not at all, but that is a general problems in a lot of budget places in the Philippines, so you kind of have to get used to it. It is not that bad. Breakfast is good, but I would recommend an improvement to the recipe of the pancakes. Like everywhere else in the Philippines you have one choice from the menu for the breakfast. Overall, we would come back as the price-val

                Pros..complimentary breakfast (basic). Pool and right on beach. Great location, only a short walk into town. Cons..the bathroom could do with some work. Wifi only in main area. Sometimes quite noisy in the area.

                What we loved about this place is that it was at the beach and you could have breakfast in the morning outside with an amazing view over the water. You woke up and it felt like holiday straight away. If you stay in the main area of El Nido its busy and very packed. So Kalinga Beach Resort was definitely a better option for us. You cab walk to the main area, but they can also bring you whenever you want with a small Tuktuk. The staff was very helpful. Our shower was broken though, but the water was nice and warm.

                There were some problems in the hotel: tap water and shower were brawn. Maybe it included rust. The way to the hotel is not maintained and not comfortable. However the hotel staffs are very friendly and feeling at home. Breakfast was tasty. The hotel is located side by beach. I could relax hearing sound of wave. I accept the problem since the price is very cheap even though it is resort hotel.
