El Nido brands itself as affordable luxury, that is certainly true if you are staying in one of the four cabinas. Not if you are staying in the "suite". As all the cabinas were booked, i found myself in the slightly cheaper "suite" room. A world of a difference from the cabinas! I visited the cabinas where my friends were...

Loved our stay at El Nido...Peaceful cabinas fully equipped with everything you needed. Felt like a little house, clean and comfortable. Was nice to have the kitchen for days of dining in and storing extra water :)Victoria and Paolo were so nice and welcoming and were able to help with anything we needed. The pool was awesome to have a...

We stayed a couple of nights in the Caribbean Coast in mid July and were recommended to stay in El Nido. We were so happy with all the hospitality offered by our host Paolo and Vittoria that we would not think twice about returning. The rooms are very clean and comfortable and the decorations are in good taste. The beach...

We have cycled along all beaches around Puerto Viejo and El Nido is by far the best accomodation we have seen. A lush garden, great pool, huge suite style cottages with own terrace and hammock. Our hosts Paolo and Vittoria were truly charming, always helpful, cooked the best Pizza on the coast. Their great mix of Italian charm and hospitality...

There are 4 Cabinas but only one has air-conditioning. I did get the air-conditioned Cabina ($10 more per night) and it was fantastic; my friend stayed in another Cabina that was not air-conditioned and he said it was ok but stuffy and would have been more comfortable in a cooler room. The Cabinas are perfectly built: spacious and well-laid out...

We enjoyed a wonderful week long stay at El Nido with our 2 young boys. The cabina was lovely, the bathroom spacious. The kids loved the pool. Having breakfast prepared by the staff was very nice, and they did vary the food a little bit. The location is great, nearby you will find cafes and shops. The walk to the...

Let me start off by saying that the grounds and rooms here are gorgeous, and well maintained. They have an awesome pool and they are in a perfect location. Their breakfast is a joke, however. Scrambled eggs and toast, not even gallo pinto. The staff was a bit lacadaisical as well, but I suppose that is part of the caribbean...
