                Great place if you plan on diving in the morning. Right at your door. A pool during the day would have been really nice. It’s very hot from noon until 5.

                The stay was great in general. The place is close to some restaurants in the pops area and really close to the beach. Only bad thing is the water in the shower was cold, the toilet kept getting clogged and there was water dripping in the balcony.

                I booked but the hotel told me upon atrival that Agoda double booked the roombso they "upgraded" me to the hotel to the left. The room was large, no hot water, no wifi, and loos sharp tiles. I checked back to pass on the upgrade anf looked at the room. I woukd have switched for sure but the smellbof the floor ckeaner was overwhelmingly strong. I stayed in the upgrade room and would stop innfor the wifi to keep in contact with my booking and guests staying at my property. Hard to knock the hotel for trying.

                Hotel has not honoured the booking with Agoda!”

                I had made a booking for this hotel via Agoda that was guaranteed by my credit card and received a signed and stamped confirmation letter from Agoda. When I arrived at the hotel on the booked arrival date, they said they don't have the booking and the hotel is fully booked! When Agoda tried to reach them to discuss the problem, they - according to Agoda - never responded. At least the receptionist arranged for an alternative hotel (that was very bad). When I returned to discuss if they can find a better alternative hotel for me, the hotel manager was present, but didn't bother to talk to me personally and apologize. A very bad experience! Very unprofessional.

                Friendly staff, excellent breakfast, close to beach

                The Pa-Lao-Yu Dive resort is a new building with only 4 rooms presently. They are adding 4 more rooms. The rooms are very basic, and could benefit from some kind of fixtures in the room like small table, dresser or closet. However, the AC is cold, the bed is comfortable and the bathroom was clean. The location is on Corong Corong Beach (no sea views) and is only about 10 minute ride to the city area. The breakfast was cooked to order in the morning and was delicious and ample. The best part of this place is the staff. Whether you are diving or not, the guys there look after the guests. They are expert divers, but also wonderfully friendly and inclusive. They had plenty of helpful hints and assisted us with booking trips, renting a motorbike and lots of other useful info about the area. Well done to Ian and the crew!

                Practical Choice in a Nice Location”

                Fairly priced at around USD50 per night with free breakfast, airconditioned room, hot shower and the basic necessities. Location is nice too as it's a less than 10 minute tricycle ride to the town and less than 5 minute walk to Corong-corong beach which has spectacular views of the sunset. Lots of nice restos around the area too and I suggest that you try Altrove , Las Plage and the italian resto beside it (sorry I forgot the name). What an amazing experience at El Nido as you can book all tours at the front desk. Don't forget to visit Nakpan beach which is a 45 minute shuttle ride which you can also areange at Pa Lao Yu . Service is very good so Enjoy!

                We really enjoyed staying in this hotel. We were warmly welcomed by the host of the hotel. He explained to us very clear about the facilities of the hotel. What we should be careful and what we should do in El Nido and other services around. It is a small hotel but very clean. Staff was very friendly and helpful. They have a sercurity to look after the hotel when we get back late and we feel very safe. It’s very convinced with laundry service and restaurants, pharmacy ..... around. We love it. We choose to stay there in the budget hotel here because we spent our time for sightseeing on the island hopping tour and it was wonderful. If you are very fancy of hotel, this one is not for you.

                We stayed here for 4 nights. The location is outside El Nido town but that's alright because we find that this place is quiet and near clean beach where you can stroll and watch the nice sunset. It is also close to restaurants serving good food! The price per night is already inclusive of breakfast and it is always served on time! the Staff (Tin-Tin and kuya Mark) are both helpful and nice people. Not to mention the owner who is also super nice. Slight downside for me is the shower--- but this is maybe something not important to others but to me I must have hot shower always. Although i must say that cold shower was nice because of the super hot weather when we visited (April). Overall, our stay was pleasant and comfortable.

                It was amazing it was just a 3 minute trike right outside of the city center. Made it very easy to get to and away from the activities and the night life. Right next to a private beach access for days you want to be alone at the beach. The staff was very helpful and a fresh , hot breakfast was included with bacon , eggs , toast , fruit , or many other options which I found amazing for free. The dive shop and the diving was top notch and iean the owner was very friendly and willing to talk for an hour with me to give me underwater photography tips. This place was amazing and perfect for our time in Palawan.

                This is an awesome place to stay. We went with lower expectations given we heard that most resorts in elnido are basic. But the staff and service made our experience a lot better. The dive guide noki wais very helpful when he took us for island bopping in his speed boat. We could take our kids as well safely and with their help and support we could enjoy our island hopping to the most. My daughter loved their pet dog pau pau. Their kitchen helper made some Indian tea and pancakes for our kids which really too much to expect normally. Rooms were clean and neat, bathrooms are good with rain shower ( but no hot water). Beach is just behind the resort. Number of restaurants and small shops are just next to hotel. Enjoyed.
