          We spent several evenings in the bar, very relaxed atmosphere, nice food and good drinks. They have beach bar and lounge with puffs in the second floor. It is close to el Nido center but is not in the village itself. Recommend!

          I am planning to come to the Philippines in January, mainly for snorkeling and diving. I saw your web site, but I wanted to ask questions to you directly so I can be sure I know how things are at your place. It certainly looks like a beautiful and comfortable place to stay. Here are some questions: 1. Is there good snorkeling from the beach at hotel? I don't want to take a boat, just want to wade out & go snorkeling. 2. How hot does it usually get in January: Is air conditioning available? Is there usually much rain In Jan? Do you have fresh water showers? Electricity? 3. Do you have a dive shop or is the a dive shop close by? 4. If I want a meal at another restaurant are restaurants nearby? 5. How does one get around? Is there easy bus service? 6. Would I fly in to Puerto Princesa and do you have transportation from airport? 7. Can I get a room with a/c and ocean view? What is the cost? I am one person, I hope to stay for 2 weeks, around Jan 7, but my dates are flexible. Thanks, hope to hear from you soon Billye Timbes

          No kitchens in the units for that many from what I have seen. They have a restaurant downstairs and there are plenty of all types/budget eating places in El Nido.
