Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

first we were shocked of the last reviews but our room was recently renovated and the room service cleaned our room everyday. the location is very quiet. breakfast is okay, you can choose between american breakfast, continental breakfast, pancakes, etc. in contrast to another hotel in el nido, lally and abet beach cottages was definitely our best choice!

Nice place and adequate for our stay. Cleaning was intermittent. Breakfast was included for us and outstanding. The place is a little run down, and with a little work and investment could be the best place in town. Very convenient to town and all activities. The staff was very friendly and helpful. My only complaints were poor internet and resident...

From a western standard, it’s not really an expensive property (I paid including taxes and fees about 3200php) in respect to location – but – the rooms are at the best, hmmmm, “sparse”/ extremely basic – not to a western standard – poor bedding …but the small TV does work, aircon is cool, and shower water can be heated by...

The rooms did not look the same as the ones posted. We were booked in the Lally and Abet hotel branch, a 10-minute walk away from the main branch. We did not complain about the way the rooms looked because we understood that it is a budget hotel. However, the wifi wasn't working so I approached the reception and asked....

We stayed there for 4-5 days. It was a nice stay, but a little too expensive for this kind of property. I am giving 4 starts out of 5. Cottages are beautiful and comfy. It is not luxury accommodation, but pretty good for budget travelers like us

We stayed here for 2 nights. We arrived late so only the guard let us in. The place is okay but the toilet does not look so clean and the flush isnt working at all. The food at their resto is good and the staff there are friendly and accomodating.

Ok nice place. Prices are a bit high for what you get. The rooms are very simple. Good aircon, but they really need more decor and furniture. And they REALLY need to install a safe in the room. Breakfast was ok. The gardens of the resort is nice. The beach in front of the resort was not so nice. Nice...

My wife and I had an average experience at Lally and Abet. The view of the island is great, and the view from uptop while eating meals is awesome. Lally and Abet is a good place to rest your head at night, but your experience of the island is fulfilled doing activities throughout the day. Cottage area is fairly quiet...

I don't even know where to begin, we arrived and the hotel was overbooked, the receptionist had to sent us to a different hotel 10 min away, the "funniest part" was that even her didn't know where our "new" hotel was. Since we were at a different hotel and after arguing with them, they had to sent a van to...

They have a big room and bed which is nice. It was a nipa cottages and garden theme which is very homey. Wifi isnt good inside the room, it is only available at the reception. not much option with their breakfast either.
