            Awesome Swiftlets Inn.. :-)”

            I celebrated my Birthday in El Nido, Palawan, and Swiftlets Inn couldn't be more perfect with the accommodation they've provided us, to make that happen.. :-) We stayed at this hotel from Oct 19 to Oct 22 (sorry I got really busy, my review is really delayed, Hahahaah!) and this property is just perfect, from start to finish! The entire place is squeeky clean, the staff were very pleasant and always have that smile when they see you (and yes! they're all attentive!), breakfast is served right outside your door (with an amazing overlooking view at the chill vibe El Nido city), the size of the room is just right for our need, and their beds are sooo comfy! So if you're looking for a quiet place to stay in the heart of El Nido, then I strongly recommend that you book this hotel.. This place is about 10-15 minutes walk from the main El Nido Dock (where most tourists are being picked up for their Island Tours), but if you don't mind walking, and you want to enjoy that stroll (while appreciating the El Nido local setting), then Swiftlets Inn is definitely for you! Definitely will book again! Thank you Swiftlets Inn!.. :-)

            Great stay but not being informed of some stuff”

            Glad I booked Swiftlets Inn for my 3 nights stay in El Nido. Twas a 10min walk to Calle Hama and El Nido bus terminal. Swiftlets Inn has 4 stories. 1st floor you'll find their kitchen, NO lounging area/receiving area, sign some papers and get assisted to your room. Their stairs has big steps and too bad we're on Rooftop. Room was small. Aircon has a bit problem for it doesn't get cold as you put it in 17°. Remote was crazy too. Breakfast is included, BUT, this is the thing, they will not inform you that you have to fill out a form and have to give it all the way to 1st floor so they can prep your food. We just figured it out on our own. They will serve the food outside your room which there is a table. I love their breakfast so much, they're very generous for the omellete is so big, swear. But yeah, definitely, I enjoyed my stay in Swiftlets Inn.

            Simplicity at its best”

            All of the basic necessities are covered by Swiftlets Inn - Thank you for providing us a comfortable accommodation on our stay at El Nido. Clean room and warm hospitality welcomed us on our arrival and until our last day. Nice breakfast (3 set options to choose from) and unlimited water, coffee, milo and black tea is on offer. Wifi is good on Philippine standards, so nothing to complain on it as well. Cable TV is a plus too! Noise is acceptable - As it is located on the main road, there is a constant flow of vehicles (mainly tricycles / tuktuk). Some of the local tourists may be used to this kind of noise and would treat it considerable but I would understand if some may found it little less than ok especially at night. Note that most of the hotels at El Nido are located on the same road so noise more or less will be the same. As for the location, the inn is around 10 min walk to the beachfront / restaurants. Beware of taking the tricycles as they charge a lot regardless of the proximity to the destination.

            Staff performance, comfort and cleanliness

            There were several power outage during our stay at El Nido, unfortunately Swiftlets did not have their own backup generator, this is the only negative thing we could think of during our stay. We missed our connecting flight on the first night of intended stay and we were surprised that the owner was negotiable and agreed to refund us one night of stay, that left a very good impression! Unfortunately, when we were finally there, there was no electricity at that part of the town for more than 24h, and Swiftlets had to relocate us to another inn nearby. That was some inconvenience, but they already tried their best to make our stay more comfortable, so we have no complaints. Swiftlets booked us for two night stay at that inn in a bigger room, but once electricity resumed on the second evening, we chose to go back as it is more comfortable and we felt more at home. Swiftlets also helped us to book two island hopping tours (A&C) and a half day tour to Nacpan beach/ Marimegmeg sunset viewing, the tours were really good and we enjoyed ourselves.

            Super Recommended Hotel”

            Had the best stay in Swiftlets Inn. The staff was good and the owner Kuya Ting is super great. He arranged almost everything for us. He helped us with the van transfers to and from San Vicente airport. He made sure we are comfortable. The staff also prepared our meals right on time. They also prepare extra for our trip back home. They had unlimited coffee, milo and tea. The beds are comfortable and the room is clean. For the price, I love the fact also they also had a bathtub. The hotel is very accessible to public transport but still is a good 10-15 minute to town proper. The surroundings are very peaceful too. We just hear the noise from the tuk tuks passing by aside from that everything else is fine. They had CCTV all over the place so you also feel safe. We had trouble with the wifi though as our room is far from the router. The signal couldn't reach our room so we had to turn on our LTEs for internet. Overall, I would recommend this place when staying in El Nido. Super love.

            Cleanliness, Price, Owners

            I stayed here for 5 nights in October and I loved it! Kim and her family welcomed me and treated me like one of their own. A fresh hot breakfast was made for me every morning and I was able to book island hopping tours and get tips about local beaches from Kim and her parents. El Nido is a beautiful place. One of the most naturally gorgeous places that I've ever travelled to. Make sure to do the island hopping tours and explore the beaches around town. Las Cabanas is a little secluded beach located about 15 minutes to the north. The hotel has 4 rooms and they have plans to expand. I hope to go back to El Nido one day soon and I'll definitely stay at Swiftlets Inn again!

            Staff. Comfort & Quality. Care for travelers.

            This is a great hotel. Wonderful staff and location is just about right if you don't want to be in middle of action in El Nido. It is a short ride anyways, in case you want the action. The hotel is new and even with just a few staff, the level of service is excellent in all days I was there. Electricity is available all day, room is very new with the modern T&B. They even serve breakfast right outside your room. Security is also very good. What I appreciated the most is the level of care they have for their guests. They treated me like a friend. I am on a strict medical program and the hotel manager even researched on it so I can enjoy breakfast. They even allowed me to cook in their kitchen and helped me prepare my packed veggies for my return trip to PPS. One of the staff kindly went for some errands I needed. This is a great place to stay if you want comfort, excellent care and security. Great job, Swiftlets Inn! Will recommend you to my family & friends.

            Excellent Customer Service!”

            We were a group of three friends who visited El Nido, Palawan for the first time. We had a great stay in Swiftlests Inn! The location is very convenient and near to beachfront restaurants. It just took us a few minutes to reach the center of El Nido. The room is clean with hot shower and a tub! The wifi is okay. And there’s also a safe in the room to put your valuables. They also serve free breakfast. Only downside is that our room is on the 4th floor and there’s only stairs. But its okay since even the fancier hotels in El Nido don’t have elevators. They also don’t have a restaurant but the place is near to restaurants. The staff are very approachable and responsive to our requests. We checked out late because we came from Nacpan beach but they still provided us a room to put our baggages and to shower without additional payment. I will surely come back to this place if I visited El Nido again in the future! Highly recommended! Maris 🇵🇭

            Very accommodating staff!”

            rooms (1 and 2) are small, but clean. We did triple-sharing so made use of an extra bed. Not picky so it was good enough for us. The staff went out of their way to accommodate our every request --- from a very early check-in (10am instead of 2pm) at no extra charge, offering a room at a lower floor for my senior parents, prepping balloons to celebrate a milestone birthday, ordering extra breakfast and not being charged for it, borrowing their dinnerware for take-out food and washing them for us after, arranging a van for us to the airport which cost us less than taking the tricycle (I think this was the owner or manager... wonderful guy!), to recommending a good and nearby place to eat, etc. etc. WIFI connection was also great. The only drawback was that our bathroom sink was leaking. Other than that, we had a great stay. Would stay here again if ever we go back to El Nido! Thank you, Swiftlets Inn!

            Perfect 3-day El Nido Stay”

            March 2016 I struggled to decide on a hotel in El Nido for our 3-day stay; there were so many options and a lot had mixed reviews. My only apprehension in initially booking at Swiftlets was the 10 minute walk into town. I'm glad I went with my gut and chose this hotel because my boyfriend and I felt very safe during the walk back to the hotel at night. This place was really clean and the staff were awesome, providing a delicious breakfast and arranging all of our island hopping tours each morning (no need to book in advance). The area is noisy, but I can't see how staying directly in town would be any better. There's no chance you're getting away from the early morning chicken wake-up calls if you want to visit this area. Also, the wifi and electricity was spotty, but honestly, it comes with the territory. My friends stayed in a more expensive accommodation and it seemed like they had even less wifi availability than we did at Swiftlets. That said, the air conditioning unit and tv, while not a necessity for us, were great to have. We had a wonderful time at Swiftlets and I'd highly recommend. In case it helps, our itinerary: Day 1: Trike to Nacpan Beach Day 2: Island Hopping Tour C Day 3: Island Hopping Tour A (a must-do!) Left on the morning of Day 4 for Puerto Princesa via Daytripper van.

            Attentive and friendly service, close to El Nido town and bus terminal.”

            I appreciate greatly that Ting (the owner) bent the rules and allowed me a rather check-in around 8am. I arrived El Nido around 3am and had forgotten to take into consideration that the standard time for check-in was at 2pm. I like how hands on Ting is with the operations around the 12 room inn, and how helpful and friendly he and his crew are. Every morning during breakfast (which was similar everyday but filling for a tiny eater like me), Ting would make his round and ask every room guest their plans for the day. He arranged my rides for trips to the isolated Nacpan and Duli beaches and also to Las Cabanas beach at a discounted rate with his young friend who was also friendly and could navigate the routes safely. Overall I'm pleased with Swiftlets Inn facing the gorgeous limestone and their usage of solar panels to generate hot water, inverter air-cond and toilet with a cover that doesn't pinch the skin like the older versions do. The only small complaints are to include tea bags to the self service pantry instead of merely Milo and Nescafe, to provide drinking water and use a thicker blanket instead of a white bedsheet for air-cond rooms. Keep up the good job Swiftlets Inn!

            First Time in El Nido”

            I have read about what to expect about El Nido accommodation in general and had helped me in selecting my hotel. Most if not all hotels in El Nido are expensive compared to PPS. Power outage is common in the area so I made sure that there is a standby generator. What you see on the website about Swiftlets is what you really get. - Cleanliness is a big thing for me. I commend how they keep everything clean and organized. They have an open kitchen and we could see that it is kept clean and tidy. - Room is not too spacious but very functional, well lit and a/c is very good. I like it that they have hanger provisions for your wet swimming clothes at the balcony. - Breakfast serving is good but I hope they would offer other menu options; so as not to have the same set everyday especially when you stay for several days. I'm a coffee person; so their 24hr unlimited (3in1) coffee and tea is a great perk for me. - Location is very good. The 6hr drive from PPS can be tiresome but I found myself relaxed at the hotel balcony; staring at the large rock formation just in front of me. Also, it's just a few minute walk to the beachfront, where restos and market stalls are. Cons: can be noisy because there was an ongoing building construction right beside the hotel. They stop working at around 9pm anyway, so getting to sleep at night was not a problem. Overall, my stay was very pleasant. If you have the budget, I highly recommend this hotel.

            Sorry for my late review. We stayed in Swiftlets Inn for 3 nights and I have nothing negative to say about the place. The Inn is near the docking area and just far enough from the bars and restos where it may become noisy at night. We will be back and finally we no longer have to hunt for hotels because this will be our official hotel in El Nido! :) Thank you so much

            My wife and I stayed for 4 nights at Swiftlets and enjoyed Población very much. It's a perfect base to rest between daily adventures. The market is close enough to walk to and so it the town centre and town beach. The only issue we experienced was traffic noise. Unfortunately Población in El Nido is the tourist mecca, and traffic of loud motor bikes and tricycles go basically none stop. This is not something that Swiftlets can change of course, so it's not their fault, but it's good to know. I doubt anywhere else nearby would be any different noise wise. The breakfast was hearty and fuelled us for the day. The air conditioning was superb and the bed was clean and comfortable. The drying rack outside was very handy. We had no issues with theft or any uncomfortable experiences during our stay. Any requests we had, the staff was happy to assist. We will definitely be back! Thank you Swiftlets!

            The best accommodation in El Nido in terms of service and its staff!! The owner will provide you with everything that you will need to enjoy your much anticipated vacation in El Nido. Don't hesitate to ask for any assistance. Swiftlets is just a 5 min walk from central town where most of the fun happens. The astonishing view at the front is Mt Taraw which in itself is a sight to wonder. To the left is Las Cabanas which is also a 10 min tryke ride. The free breakfast is simple but delicious. I really believe that our stay was made more enjoyable because of Swiftlets. Even our private van to Puerto Prinsesa was arranged by them where we had the chance to tour some of the unique attractions there. I will upload our video in YouTube. Look for Wander Puts to see :-) Thanks!!

            The Swiftlets Inn is a very nice hotel with currently only eight rooms. The staff was always helpful and gave us good ideas for spending our day. The rooms are simple but efficient. Hot shower, air condition and 24h electricity Swiftlets has is sth you can't find everywhere in El Nido. The hotel is located a bit uptown avoiding the sounds of the crowds in the center. Maybe 10 min walk to the water. A little gambling place is on the way providing fun entertainment. It is at the main street into El Nido so that it can get a bit noisy too. The breakfast has room for improvement. Repetitive plated breakfast on the third day. Overall though the value for the money and the service are great! And we recommend it especially for shorter stays (we stayed five night)

            We were happy with our week stay at Swiftlets! The hotel was clean and we are especially pleased with the staff. There was someone available at the desk, 24 hrs/day. The manager, Ting, is friendly and was very accommodating when it came to our activities for the day. He gave us information to go on tours, local spots and helped us with motorbike rentals. Complimentary breakfast served daily, enjoyed that we could eat it right outside of our room. The only thing I believe some people may complain of is the noise but that is d/t construction next door, out of their control. My husband had ear plugs and I don’t bother easily so it was not an issue for us. We will definitely stay here again when we return to El Nido.

            I would highly recommend Swiftlets not only to my friends but also for those who are planning to visit El Nido. Location wise is 7 minutes walking distance to the beach or market area which is very convenient. The room is lit and tidy & there is a common veranda for each floor supplied with 24 hours hot water & coffee where you can just sit and relax after a long day of island hopping. The staffs were excellent in attending to our needs to the point that they took the extra mile on not to charge us extra 3 nights for my sister since it was my mother’s bday & on top of that they’ve prepared an early breakfast for us at 4am before we depart which is beyond their usual 6am breakfast time since they don’t want their guests to feel hungry while traveling. I would suggest also to arrange directly with them your package island or inland tours and the airport transfer if you’re traveling from Puerto-El Nido & vice versa and you’ll surely never go wrong. Trust me, they’re worth it. 😊
