We have been visiting family on this trip. We got away for. A few days to Palawan without kids. Our suite was the last room available for our time available. We had the entire top floor. Bedroom, living room, 2 full bathrooms and 2 balconys. Really big enough for two couples or a family. Fortunately no kids here. Great service very personal and they only have 7 rooms so they know every guest. Right on the beach, and even a local bar next door for cheap drinks. Breakfast is served from 7am to 5pm.! Seriously no 10am bulls..t. Served in your room or the restaurant. This hotel hs a small beach frontage but they have utilized every bit of it. Whoever designed this property really knows their stuff.

We could not be happier with our stay. The hotel is beautifully decorated with local goods, the views are spectacular and the rooms well appointed and very comfortable. We did not see any other hotels inland with such charm and design. The bar and restaurant are very small but the food, beauty and service make up for it. I specifically enjoyed the variety of drinks (Mimosas, yay!) at the bar and the offer of local juices and fruits at breakfast. we even went back to the hotel for dinner one night and were not disappointed. They also brought us a treat every night and they were delicious. We took two private tours with their boats and that was probably the best part of our trip: Ryan and the crew took us to wonderful spots and most of times we were either the first ones to get

I was very lucky that this time I could bring my husband and my kids because the hotel was opened for family (with young kids) only for this week! I love Frangipani because its vibe.. It is a small boutique hotel so you kinda feel like it is your home. The food is amazing, the room is spacious, the staff are very kind and friendly. They don't have spa room but they will bring massage table to the room (a very comfy masaage table) and the massage was soooo gooodddd! The hotel is located in the middle of the main road so you can easily access the town or vanilla beach by using tricycle! 100peso for 1 ride. The most important highlight is Three Coconut El Nido and the Skipper Charter boat! It is a must. Three Coconut El Nido beach is owned by the owner of Frangipani...it

We stayed at the Frangipani in October 2019 - I selected it due to wanting a good hotel but not being subject to the isolation the high end hotels in the area have due to being on the smaller Islands. The Frangipani is perfectly positioned to being quiet but still within reach of the town and Corong Corong bars. The only negative thing about the hotel is the Wi-Fi however we were aware that El\Nido has issues with this prior to travel, so be warned. The room was spacious and clean with a nice balcony and bathroom. The staff are great, really helpful and friendly. Breakfasts are very good, cooked to order and filling; we missed these when we moved on from El Nido and the higher end hotels we stayed in at Coron and Manila had nothing close to the Frangipani for quality and

The good: * The staff here are superb! From the moment we walked in and got our complimentary coconuts to the minute we left with a packed lunch for our flight the staff were faultless. Always going a little out of the way to find solutions to things that were out of their control (like when it started pouring when we took our tricycle to the airport and the manager found some plastic to cover our suitcases), and giving us an extra few hours before we had to check out. We were given a lovely bottle of wine for our recent engagement and also had a very sweet turn down service with local cakes and personalised messages each evening. * The rooms really have the most spectacular view and are far enough away from el nido town to be very quiet. * The food in the restaurant kept us
