We had an enjoyable five night stay at this adult boutique property.

The property is excellent value, location is good to shops and restaurants. The onsite restaurant serves up decent fare and cocktails. The atmosphere is laid back and relaxed – The sunsets from the beach & outdoor bar / lounge area are some of the finest on the globe. The vegetation and layout has that boutique feel and although privacy is at a premium, the resort is hosting only a small number of adult guests, meaning privacy is not a huge concern, just remember to always close the room curtains!

The staff are salt of the earth and attribute to making a stay here memorable and highly enjoyable.

Joseph the manager checked us in early and was totally helpful in tips (cost of tuk tuk’s) arranging massages and daily housekeeping concerns etc. The bar staff are the best, jovial, sincere and proficient in providing just the right amount of service along with delicious and exotic cocktails.

The rooms are quiet, clean & comfortable with A/C – the showers are brackish and the smell can be off putting to some. The spacious porch is a great spot to relax, enjoy dinner or breakfast, the latter must be pre-ordered the night prior.

We found choosing to eat breakfast down by the beach a relaxing experience with a great view. We alternated between our front porch & the beach bar for daily breakfasts & dining.

The beach touts cannot come on the property, however they will stand on the beach attempting to get your attention any time of the day – Ignoring them or telling them tomorrow is ineffective, eventually they get hint and move on only to replaced by the next tout a few seconds later….. We found the most effective way was pretending they do not exist……

The beach view is incredibly scenic and one can walk for miles, however swimming is only possible right at high tide and even then a challenge.

A Short (Hard negotiated) 150 Peso tuk tuk ride will take you to Nacpan beach which is a mix of backpacker accommodations, hotels, shops, beach bars and decent swimming. A small purchase of a bottle of water off the beach bar will get you the use of a beach chair which may or may not be in working / safe or comfortable condition.

Resort massages need to be booked in advance as outside therapists are coordinated for the use of the massage hut located just off the pool area. Massages are in a non-air-conditioned but naturally cooled comfortable quiet hut. The massages although a tad bit expensive for the Philippine’s were top notch and professional – we treated ourselves twice in five days!

A stay here is highly recommended – we were sorry to leave and we thank all the fine staffs for making our stay satisfying & memorable.

Thanks Everyone!

Everything I love about a resort. No large crowds, clean rooms, sand paths, beachfront restaurant and bar, pool and perfect sunsets.

Yes the beds are hard, as they are in all Asian countries. Nice touches like breakfast served on your balcony or at the beach with lots of fresh juice, fruit and cooked dish of your choice. The staff were very welcoming and friendly and did their best to look after you we always got a table at the beach bar and the food was good. Happy hour cocktails saw an influx of people as they come off their boat trips which made things a bit more lively.

We arranged our tour through the hotel and enjoyed it immensely. Hotel can also arrange private transportation to the airport for a charge

Drivers at the top of the drive to take you to El Nido town for around $100 pesos.

Can’t recommend enough if you want a relaxing laid back resort with only a small number of rooms.

I've been to El Nido before and as a solo traveller struggled to find mid range priced hotels which are good value for money.

This hotel far exceeded my expectations. Wonderfully placed on the beach with great views. They have only a small amount of rooms which are self contained cottage style bungalows.

Extremely airy and spacious and very clean.

It's also very nice to have a lounge area both inside and outside.

Breakfast by the pool and beach area is lovely but they also offer free breakfasts brought to your room.

It's a shame I was only here for 1 night. I'd definitely stay again for longer if I could.

The resort has a small road ( one car can fit only) leading to its entrance. The lobby is open type, clean with a living room to welcome the visitors and the staff are very friendly and helpful. There are few different rooms/ cottages in the area, some with jacuzzi type tub outside the terrace. We booked the deluxe bungalow and it was spacious, clean and have a comfortable bed even the sofa bed at the side was soft and big like a double bed size.. The towel however showed that some were old as they were placed stacked on each other and one can see the color difference. The breakfast is delicious and dried fish, spam or corn beef were some of the choices. One has the perfect spot to dine because it was located at the beachfront. At night, the place is safe, quiet and the staff are readily available if one needs anything. One can book a tour here in this resort, or get some suggestions as to where to visit and swim and dine with cheapest value but with delicious food. If one loves comfort, quiet place, beautiful scenery and beachfront location then spending a little more is not a problem. Our stay overall was amazing and I hope to be back again soon!

This lovely boutique resort located on Caron-Caron Beach is the premier place to stay in El Nido. The bungalows offer spacious accomodations as well as a large terrace to enjoy the spectacular views. The staff is extremely friendly and well quite frankly alot of fun. Karen, Feby and Shirly made our stay so great. The restaurant serves good food and the bar pours tasty cocktails. The sunsets off the beach are freakin' amazing. Lastly, Joeseph, the General Manager will go out of his way to make sure your stay is an enjoyable one. He'll book trips and recommend restaurants and beaches nearby. Loved our stay and think you will too. P.S The photos do not do the property justice.

The room is a cottage with a great outside verandah. Good people, Ian in the bar was great.
The only issue is no restaurant, but there is a great Italian about2 minutes away - also on the beach.
Breakfast was served on the verandah exactly at the time it was requested.
No problems with transport. Trikes waiting about 2 minutes walk.

The staff was friendly immediately upon our arrival and they allowed us into the room as soon as it was cleaned and not make us wait until check in. The property is off the main road but down a long drive and actually sits directly on the small beach. Views of fishing boats and amazing scenery.

Say yes to the breakfast each morning delivered to your porch! It’s delicious and the French press coffee was amazing.

The pool is beautiful and reading in the water chairs there was my favorite way to relax.

The drinks were great - especially the margaritas! The food was decent but we only tried a couple things. Food in general is not the highlight of the area in my opinion. It’s the scenery and the people.

It’s away from the busy El Nido town center but only 100 pesos tricycle ride away. The beach walk in either direction from the hotel bar/restaurant takes you past several other beach front bars/restaurants, massage places, and a small area called the pop district with shops and more places to eat.

The opposite direction of town is a beautiful beach worth visiting called Las Cabañas beach. It’s 150 pesos to get there by tricycle and you have tk walk through what looks like an abandoned mall to reach the beach but it’s worth it. Stunning.

We would stay at this hotel again for sure!

Loved our stay at this resort. It was small and quiet, so relaxing. The location was perfect. Walking distance to some restaurants and bars, and about a 5 min tricycle ride to downtown. We had a sea view cottage and it was beautiful waking up to the view of the ocean. Breakfast & coffee is delivered to your cottage deck every morning. The service was friendly and helpful. We had early morning island hopping tours and they always made sure to have a tricycle for us. We loved sitting and watching the sunset every night. Can’t wait to visit again!

Just one word for this place FABULOUS.
From the moment you enter reception it’s 5 star treatment from then on.

The beach cabanas are amazing, large and very well equipped, ours was a garden view and to be quite honest it was brilliant as the design made you feel you were in your own forest.

Wifi was very good at room 8. Excellent rainforest shower, lovely big comfortable bed and your own personal veranda to relax in.

There is also a pool if your not in to swimming in the sea or you just prefer to relax without sand getting everywhere.

The restaurant and bar are overlooking this stunning bay and the food is some of the best I have had since starting my travels in January, the pressed pork it’s delicious and so is the mixed seafood starter.

We really wanted to stay longer here but they were fully booked, we will definitely book well in advance next time.

If your visiting El Nido then this is the place to be, it has everything.

I was looking for a beachfront cottage with a pool and this resort fits my budget. I had a very pleasant stay here, it is peaceful and quiet and the room is spacious. It's very near to the city center, just 5 minutes by tricycle. But I also want to tell my experience about the island hopping, which is the highlight of this trip. The real beautiful beaches are found on the other islands, but in order to see them, you need to avail these tours (they have tours A,B,C,D). The big lagoon is in tour A, along with the other nice ones where you can go snorkling and kayaking. But in tour C, when the waves are wild and you need to swim to go to the beach, will make you swallow a lot of salt water (even if you're wearing a life jacket) the waves will pull you back to the deep side, you need to hold on to a rope that was being led by the tour guide otherwise you will not move no matter how hard you swim. It was a bit fun for a person like me who loves thrills and adventures but for those who are fearful of water or doesn't know how to swim, better choose a tour that doesn't require long swimming. I also suggest not to bring their expensive phones in the island hopping unless it has an IP case or a waterproof seal
