I love Sea Cocoon Hotel El Nido. Very convenient location (near the restaurants and the beach). Very clean rooms. Bed and pillows were comfy, strong and stable Wi-Fi in our room, lobby, dining and pool area. Superb and friendly staff especially the owner sir Eric. They are dog lovers which i love mostly about them. They surprised me with a birthday cake and sang a birthday song which brought me to tears because of their sweet gesture. If you want a relaxing stay in El Nido, this is the place for you. Thank you Sea Cocoon and Sir Eric for making my birthday extra special. Will surely miss Samba and company 😘😍😄

We had a great surprise with this hotel. The owner is so attentional with every guest. The decor of the hotel is a different thing in El Nido. The hotel has a really calm vibe and it’s confortable to relax after a day of fun in El Nido. The pool is great and the view of El Nido bay is especial. If you’re thinking of coming to El Nido, this is the place to stay.

I would rate this hotel a 3.5 stars. Overall we had good service. The hotel booked our tours and some transfers and we had no issues. There was however quite a bit of construction happening while we were staying there and had to upgrade to the 4th floor to get away from some of the noise. The road facing side of the hotel was also quite noisy. The hotel is very basic but I think that is the standard for El Nido. The location of the hotel is good because it is very close to the walking street.

Response from Eric Sugui, General Manager at Sea Cocoon Hotel
Responded 10 Mar 2020
Hello Kurt, thanks for your review. You forgot to mention the noise was due to the installation of our new elevator. Work was done not at night but at daytime when most guests are out on boat tours.This should lead to the convenience and more comfort of our forthcoming guests.

We came from a 5 star hotel in Manila, to Sea Cocoon, and this hotel is much better by far.. If you want a very nice and clean room, with service above high you must visit this hotel, the bonus thing is that this staff and hotel maneger make you feel very welcome, they allways polite and humble, more then you can say for one of the finest hotels in Manila, Makati.. The Hotel is located in the city, and easy acces to tranfer, restaurants, and tours. We went on a Tour thst the hotel arranged, and it went sooth as butter, so dont be afried to book a tour :) You wont find better service and kindness in El nido or Manils then what Eric and his staff can provide :) Kind regards Anna and Kaspar
