I'm shocked at the poor reviews of this place. It's quite good value - 1/2 the price of the place stAyed across the road for a similar room (but it's not beach front) Rooms are clean, a but rustic - but it's a hut so that's to be expected. Unlike other reviews; I had working fan and air-con which (even...

We arrived at this hotel on our first night in El Nido and the staff were friendly, the huts were attractive. However sadly it all went downhill from there. So we went to sleep and it was raining so heavily, it took a while to get to sleep due to the fact that the huts walls were paper thin and...

Great place to stay situated in Corong Corong : better than el nido. Nice people and everything around. The owner "family" is very helpful and smiling. We had the room number 6 which is very confortable. The beach is so cloth to the hostels. You can rent scooter for 500p.

Where do I start..... For the price you pay here, you will find much better value in many other parts of El Nido. I would have much rather have paid 1000 pesos more to get something a lot nicer, or paid 1000 pesos less to get the same type of of accommodation elsewhere. Terrible Value. Nothing worked. Aircon never worked....

Pay attention that this hotel has policy that they may require you to make deposit to confirm booking in advance. Everything could be well if only they could accept deposit by PayPal, paying by credit card, etc. But no - they require bank transfer and only bank transfer. And what is the most amazing, they can lost your money! This...

We enjoyed our stay at Novie's. The staff is very friendly and helpful always available for any questions. Room is clean and AC works pretty well still it can be a bit nosy. Location is good not in El Nido (5-10mn with Trycicle - 30 to 50p) but that's why it's cheaper. Good thing is that you are close to...

We recognise that going for a budget option you have to make some allowances but I convinced my friends that paying a little more for a room with air conditioning would be well worthwhile, unfortunately I was wrong when it transpired that the air conditioning unit in room 2 doesn't actually work. The staff, whilst friendly enough didn't actually react...

No accommodation in Palawan is perfect but Novies was perfect for us because the staff were amazing and the rooms had everything we needed. During our stay I ended up hospitalized and the hotel drove me straight there and told the hospital what was wrong with me. Everyday the staff had a smile on their face and were super helpful,...

The location of this place is fab! Just across the road from Corong Corong beach which is much quieter than El Nido beach and only $1 tricycle drive from the main town. Long story short, we ended up moving and so we saw 3 rooms altogether, all of which were a very different standard. 2 of the rooms were lovely,...
