I have been there with my family and it was incredible! Our bungalow was without A/C but we never needed it. The breakfast was very good, and the service was perfect. The garden was something very special... I think that I saw more tropical plants there than in all the places that we visited in the country. They grow organic...

It's less than $4 cab drive from downtown, there's an exc Minimarket 50m away. Host was nice and helpful, place is clean, beds are comfty and big and...

We stayed two nights and really enjoyed the hospitality. Rooms were open and clean. Nice restaurants nearby. What's not to love? Near by its a market where you can save some cash buying fresh fruts and vegitables. Managers were very friendly.

I really enjoyed staying at these cabins. They are large and airy and fit my family of 5 comfortably. The cabins are separated and with the lush gardens you feel as if you have your own little piece of paradise. The manager is friendly and kind and so very helpful. He gave us great advice on where to go and...

Ordered today's special that was Pasta Carbonara, but the pasta came very hard and was not cooked properly, which was weird because it took almost 35 min before it arrived after ordering it. The owner was nice, though and I could send it back and order a pizza instead. I then ordered the pizza margarita, that came after 5 min......

El Nido is awesome. Our cabin was great- Big comfy bed(s), big clean kitchen, a nice porch, and total privacy and serenity. It was amazing hearing the rain and jungle sounds every night, and to swim in the pool on the sunny days. It's just beautiful. And breakfast every morning? I felt spoiled. The dogs and two cats that hung...

I wish I could give this one a better review. 3.5 stars but I am feeling charitable so bumping up 1/2 a star because of the service rather than down. First of all, the hotel grounds are very nice. Lovely pool area which the host is always quick to clean. However, the grounds/area is noisy. That'll be the bugs/howler monkeys/lizards/rain....
