          Scary location ”

          Planned on 4 nights. Only stayed 1. I wanted to leave as soon as I got there. The van driver from El Nido was surprised at how far the place was from the city.There are no trikes around for transport to a restaurant. I was also the only person checked in for the entire hotel so the restaurant was closed. They wouldn't let me book my tours in advance and then when I got there said that the tours might be full so they weren't sure if I could go (although I did get to go, and then I asked the tour guides to help me find new accommodation and they were so great and helpful). The room was clean... But I don't think it had been cleaned since the last time someone stayed in it months before. There were dead bugs and dust on the best and in the bathroom. There was no one around anywhere which was very scary. Do not stay here and definitely do not stay if you're traveling alone. They almost seemed relieved when I changed accommodation and didn't ask why. I know better in the Philippines than to complain but I know they could tell I felt uneasy.

          Location near beach, Gracious Owners, Competent Staff

          We loved our stay at the Kookaburra Travel Lodge...Thanks to the hospitality, professionalism and care that all the hotel staff provided from the front desk staff to the restaurant staff and even the security guard...But the hotel and its competent staff is only half of it, the real winners are back to the OWNERS, they treat you like a family and their assistance is second to none.

For Valentines, at night they taped hearts on our doors & hang chocolates on our door handles, they folded towels to look like swans & added many little personal touches to everything.

          friendly staff, transportation by von, clean

          great place to stay for homebase to see local area, do not use site seeing agency's, use the hotel's vans as you will save a small fortune and it will be at your pace, not some rushed timeline. Von our driver was great, I consider him a good friend now as with the cooking staff.there is a small local beach within walking distance or trike ride.just ask staff they were very helpful and honest. the owners are nice people and may G-d bless there business and staff.

          OK hotel dichtbij luchthaven”

          Personeel vriendelijk, dichtbij vliegveld

          We hebben een prima verblijf gehad in dit hotel. Kamers zijn OK, kluis miste. Hotel ligt wat verder weg van het centrum, aantal restaurantjes op 0,8 km lopen. We wilden wat eten bij het hotel, er was echter enkel fried chicken mogelijk. Hotel biedt free shuttle service naar vliegveld. Personeel zeer vriendelijk. Tour die we hadden geboekt naar Honda Bay viel wat tegen, volgende keer zouden we toch de underground River doen (ook al moet je veel wachten en hesje een lange reistijd)
