Good place, Good service and Good people”

Highly recommended accomodation in EL Nido. When we arrived from more than 16 hours of trip from Baguio City to El Nido to the hotel they offer us free coffee and the check in is fast. Our room is worth the price it is clean and more space than expected. Beach front is clean and also the surrounding around our room. Breakfast is good and served well. Cudos to all the staff they are all nice and they do take care of their guest. 5 star for this place and will come back soon

Loved our stay. ”

Throughly enjoyed our time here. The location was perfect for us, not in the busy port area meaning less chaotic. That being said fantastic scooter rental available from the hotel or 2 mins down the main road for getting around. The staff were so friendly and the breakfast was fantastic each day. Right next to the beach so brilliant views while you eat. Kayaks available to rent just a few doors down the beach and great restaurants also within walking distance. (Bella vita pizza was great)

Highly recommended place to stay in El Nido, Corong Corong Beach area”

Highly recommended place to stay in El Nido. We had a great and relaxing stay at this place. Friendly and accomodating staff. The owner is very kind for upgrading us to a deluxe room. Beachfront accommodation with a very nice view of the sunset. You could also rent a kayak for only 100 pesos per hour. Nearby the market, restaurant, and convenience store.

Best Accommodation for Budget Conscious Tourists”

Mina Grande is located along coastline of Corong Corong beach. I would say that its the best area to check in if you are looking for beach front accomodation on a tight budget. The place is 5 min walk to El Nido public market and 10 to 15 min tricy ride to the heart of kabayanan. The room and rest rooms are clean which i think is very important. This is equipped with bidet and hot/cold water temp regulators. The staff are very friendly and accommdating, could be better if they interact with tourists. The staff looks shy and timid. Overall. Id be back to stay here in El Nido.

The place is large and clean. The location is good and the back view is great especially for bfast. The only problem we had is the water, it has odor, like metallic smell and taste. The complimentary bfast is okay. They also provided free van transport for us from Puerto Princesa because they picked us late and we greatly appreciate it.
