Sobrang thankful kami dahil naging masaya at super smooth, satisfied ng stay namin sa Charlie's El Nido. From the Manager Sir Peter Lumba from Housekeeping na sobrang asikaso samin as in sobraaa!! Highly recommended ang hotel napakaganda napakalinis at napaka accommodating ng staff. Everytime na may request kami nagugulat nalang kami agad agad nagawa na 😁 Super babango ng towels, 😊 at ang foods sasarap at sobrang dami ng serving nila.. Thumbs up talaga sa service, 100% satisfied! ❤️ Our next stay will be definitely in Charlie's again 😊😊

Charlies’ pratically made every single day of our 3-night-stay in El Nido super memorable and enjoyable. There were 13 of us in three groups. Location – Charlies’ is located along the national highway, about 20 minutes from El Nido Town, and only about 10 minutes (max) from Lio Airport. The community is still quite laid back (residentials, forests), but once your inside the lobby and the hotel itself, things change. We were welcomed by a distinctly refreshing cold drink, which I forgot to ask how it’s called. For the location, 5 stars. Accessibility / Shuttle service – While we also had an arranged transpo with our tour agency, Charlies’ provided daily shuttle from our arrival and departure at Lio Airport, which we all deeply appreciate. The air-conditioned shuttle vans were new and spacious as it easily accommodated the 13 of us in our daily trip to and from the tours. They have a set schedule for drop-off and pick up at the town (we preferred the Municipal town hall as meeting place), so those intending to use the free transpo better coordinate with the very courteous shuttle staff – JC, JR, Joel. If the vans are available, you may also go to the town off-schedule but with a minimal fee. Again, Charlies’ is about 5-10 minutes from Lio Airport. The Town where the docking station for the tours is located is about 15-20 minutes. Overall, the shuttle service and the shuttle staff were excellent, 5 stars. Rooms – we booked three family rooms which were all spacious that even placing an extra bed still provided ample space for movement. Remote-controlled AC was absolutely working we had to turn it off at times. Super-clean beddings, fresh towels and robes. Our rooms also provided a very nice view of the sky and the blue pools below. View at the hallways leading to our rooms were not so-so, but pardonable. Powerful shower and water supply (though not potable) and super clean toilets (with bidet) Lysol-disinfected daily. There are enough shelves, closet, big TV, a mini-safe, daily complimentary water (no complimentary coffee and cups which was pardonable). So for the rooms (and for its price, value-for-money), 5 stars. Staff, Staff, Staff – super-friendly, hospitable, decent and courteous staff everywhere. Kudos to Argan Jade Asuncion at the reservation who made things easy for me, to Raster who picked us up at Lio Airport, to Abdul, Nace and Luke at the front desk; to Irah, Jen, Ken, Gasiel, Nina at the restaurant, and to JR, JC, Joel of the shuttle vans. All of them complimented each other, giving Charlies’ a very nice group of highly efficient hotel staff. For the staff, 5 stars. Food – Buffet Breakfast! Oh yes, indeed. Very nice set on all days; and for that, 5 stars. For dinner on Night 1, we tried Art Café (town proper, near docking station) as recommended. On Nights 2 and 3, we stayed at Charlies’ for their sumptuous pork sinigang, seafoods kare-kare, burger sliders, Charlie’s burger, and varieties of pizza and pasta which the kids enjoyed much. The restaurant ran out of regular Coke and there were no other soda available, which was kind of quite a disappointment to us Coke drinkers. I made an earlier reservation and ordered food for Night 2 but serving came in quite late, still pardonable considering the number of guests during our stay. Thanks much to Irah, Ken, Jen, Gasiel, Nina for reserving the long table for our group and for taking care of our dinner for two nights. For the food, resto service, overall, still a high 4.5 stars. Amenities – It’s the pool that mattered to our kids so the big and small pools were answered prayers for us. After the daily tours, we still managed to fully enjoy the super clean, crystal clear pools beside the restaurant. We saw a yoga room and a gym but of course we did not use. Clean restrooms, disinfectant spray and hand alcohol sprays easily available. Of course, free Wi-Fi in any spot in the hotel. For the amenities and the pools, it’s 5 stars. Overall, if it's really value-for-money that you look for, Charlie's is highly recommended.

Friendly and helpful staff, awesome pools, pretty good bar with a choice of drinks and nice cocktails. The rooms are just lovely and very clean. The restaurant is pretty good as well. Overall we had a great stay. Just keep in mind that the hotel is outside of El Nido and you need to take a free shuttle to get there.

We had loved the customer care and hospitability of staffs, especially to the manager sir Peter Lumba Jr. The food was very delicious , very responsive on the telephone call, very good also on the room deliveries of the food. The pool was nice and refreshing, also the room is very nice!. kudos also to the staff that is cleaning everyday on the room. We used the hotel for staying while doing the Tour in Elnido. Charlie's Hotel is highly recommended, you will love the place very much and they always treated you special.

We stayed at Charlie’s for 10 days, and each day was perfect. The entire staff from the front desk, restaurant and housekeeping are all very friendly and professional. We had time to check out their restaurant at different times from breakfast to dinner and each time was delicious. Our stay had free buffet-style breakfast and they had good options ranging from continental breakfast items, traditional Filipino breakfast foods , and an omelette bar. They also have happy hour with buy 1 get 1 drinks from 2PM-6PM which we thought was quite long! Their signature mojito was my favorite. Our room was cleaned daily and everything was done well. We were very comfortable in our bed and the balcony in our Premium suite was perfect for relaxing in the morning and sunsets. We had a great stay! Highly recommend!

Hii! I would like to recommend this hotel, not only because it follows the health safety protocols but it also gives you the best experience possible! The staff are super friendly and considerate, the place is beautiful and clean, and I would ho back here again if we visit El Nido again! Me and my cousin stayed here and me and the staff planned to surprise her for her birthday and they were so cooperative in terms of planning and the execution was perfect and my cousin was so happy! Thank you Charlie’s Resort for giving us the best time in 5 days!

Charlie’s is EXACTLY what I was looking for in El Nido. I wanted luxury, but not private island style. I didn’t want the crowds of El Nido town or the need to take a boat to my hotel. I wanted clean and comfortable with a touch of elegance and Charlie’s delivered every step of the way. This is a gorgeous property with delicious food and cocktails. The staff are great - especially Mel and Raster. I will stay at Charlie’s again and have already recommended it to friends. Thank you Charlie’s El Nido for a fantastic stay!

4D3N of stay in Charlie's was such a great experience. Facilities are new, well maintained, staff were so nice and accommodating. Mel from Front Desk is so nice, the management is lucky to have him. Rooms are clean. Will recommend this to our friends. Some recommendations though: change your brewed coffee served during breakfast buffet ; restaurant staff to be more attentive when orders are being taken. Other than, we are happy with our stay and will come back !
