We stayed at the Cottage (the cheapest villa there) and it was way better than we expected. It exceeded our expectations and then some! There are only a few villas so it's nice and quiet. First of all - the driveway is steep. There are 100 steps to get to the cottage but it doesn't seem that bad. There were...

Our stay in a pool villa was outstanding. The room was large with a mini- bar. The shower was a bit revealing if some guests are rather conservative. However, the view towards the coast whilst showering was outstanding. The villa has self-catering facilities if required. Each villa has it's own private seclusion. The staff were very friendly and helpful. There...

We stayed in the Deluxe villa for 3 nights and had a great stay, the rooms are spacious and clean and the pool/deck area is private and a great place to chill out with beautiful views. The location is also fine if you are happy to be around 10 to 15 mins from the main town, a plus point for...

We stayed 6 days in Room 2 of this resort, there are only 4 bungalows in total, Bungalow was nice and comfortable and staff lovely.

Overlooking exceeded our expectations and I could not recommend it more highly. Dulcy was responsive and professional from the weeks before we arrived and answered all of my questions and arranged a van to pick us up from the airport. She also made sure we were comfortable and helped us plan our meals and excursions since she was going on...

Pros: Helpful staff, price of room (sea view cottage), size of room, views are spectacular, breakfast is amazing (they even have French press coffee), A/C works very well, shower products, well maintained grounds Cons or suggestions: airport transfers are a rip off (too expensive...$20 each way!)....could have done this on our own, no hair dryer, no shower curtain or door...

Loved staying here, we booked 2 villas for the 7 nights we were there. The staff, location, and rooms exceeded our expectations. Do not hesitate in booking. Bit of a hike up the hill back to your villa so take this in mind if not capable but for us was no problems. Be sure to head across the road to...

The overlooking Villa's offer value for money: they are very nicely situated on a hillside thereby offering the possibility to escape El Nido's hectic place. The terrace at the house offered an amazing view on the seaside. Take a tricycle to El Nido (5 mins. , €1 per ride, always available).

We stayed here for two nights and since we still have an extra night to spare we were planning to extend our stay because we don't want to experience the hassle of finding another place to sleep in but sadly We were robbed on our 2nd night and the worst part is it all happened when we were sleeping inside...
