    We booked with them our island tour and our van back to puerto princesa. Checkin was a breeze. The location is very accessible and at the heart of the town of El Nido. Vibrant crowd and full of friendly people to help around. Host was also very accommodating and always ready tk help with almost anything!

    hotel can do better”

    location. friendly staff. view from upper floor

    I stayed at the Zaniyas Pension in February 2015. The hotel is family run, with the entire family on site. They are very friendly and accommodating. They need to improve in three areas: The hot water is not hot, it's cool. There is no daily change of sheets or towels, unless the guests ask for them, each time. Lastly, the breakfast was always cold (cold eggs, uggh!). El Nido is now an international destination, with tourists from all over the world with plenty of cash. The Zaniyas Pension could easily charge double their current daily rate, and include the above mentioned changes, making it into a "boutique" world class small hotel. They would make more money by doing this also. El Nido is in transition now, and the quaint "backwater" feel of the town will soon change into a mega-resort, with the usual Westins, Sheratons, and Hiltons. Go now, before these changes occur.

    Nice location, but could do better with the bathroom”

    Bad experience in the following: Just disappointed with the washroom being so small and the drain was sort of keeping water on the floor making a small puddle, the shower water pressure was so weak, the toilet's flush was not working and had to use the pail to flush, water heater did not seam to work properly, the bed only had 1 pillow per head, the TV did not work at all, too bad cause we had a senior with us and she just wanted to stay in the room most of the time. Good things from our stay: The wifi works, The location of this Pension is spot on right smack in the middle of down town El Nido, very near the beach port for boats, the restaurants, the shops and the bars. The breakfast was okay just enough. The aircon was cold.

    Great location, wonderful staff. TV reception was horrible although TV in friends room next door was fine. Our CR (bathroom) was extremely horrific from sewage smell and the floor filled with sewage water on a few occasions as well as friend’s next door. The staff did rectify this but it continued to happen. My daughter and I received numerous bites from some kind of bug, spider, whatever. Was it from the bed or room? Can’t be positive but I wouldn’t chance staying there again because of this.

    First of all the hotel is in a great location walking distance to everything one block off the beach. That said the building is old. The power goes off quite often so you will not have air conditioning quite a bit. The Wi-Fi is basically the same as having 25 people linked to your cell phone. and the WiFi is really only available at the front desk.

    Expect quite a bit of noise, especially if your room is facing the street. Central location close to shops, restaurants and bars. AC is a joke, as is the free Wifi (slowest I ever experienced). Lucky there is also a fan. TV has a few decent channels. Owner was kind enough to move me from a musty groundfloor room to a room on the upper level.
