This is a very basic clean room, but the location is great. The breakfast was fantastic and delivered to the room. The property is cozy with a great view. There are hammocks to enjoy and small table outside of the room to sit and enjoy the view. All of the staff were friendly.

The location is really great because it's in the town center and in front of El Nido beach. Every morning the tourist and tour guides are right outside the beach, collecting passengers for different tourist. All staff are friendly and accomodating. The rooms are cute with their color and decorations. They have a restaurant that serves breakfast. At the entrance of the hotel is a police station, and you can access the different restaurants around the area. Staffs are friendly and accommodating.

The rooms where pretty clean and it’s right on the beach although you can’t swim at the beach. The inn is situation in the centre of town so everything is walking distance and the towns not too big. The staff were really friendly and breakfast was included in our rate which you have a choice of food. There is a karaoke bar very close which closed at midnight so if you’re there to party is not an issue and it’s actually really amusing. The only downside was there was a few ants in our room but we did have food in there so I’m sure that’s the reason but I would definitely stay there again.

We booked the Jessica room just at the side of the restaurant and adjacent to the kids play area. What a great choice for looking onto the beach and harbour. Just 20 steps onto the beach and some great places to eat. The other option is 20 steps to the shop side with an abundance of shops bars and restaurants. Reception were very helpful and clear about cleaning, breakfast and tours when we booked in. The room is tastefully decorated and has a feel of being in a dolls house/candy store. We are on a tour of the Philippines and would have loved more time at this resort. The only negative is the hard bed mattress.

I see negative reviews by people who I suppose want a fancy resort. The heck with that. Simple room. Step out of the room, and you’re on the beach, right we’re the restaurants and bars begin. Sleep in the room, be out all the rest of the time.

For what you pay for in this place is not worth it. Yes, you have a nice view and the beach is right in front but cannot swim in it. So what is the point? I would rather spend the money in a resort like in Lio beach. Here’s my reasons: The deluxe room with partial view of the sea is crammed with furnitures! It’s not even big enough for two people. Shower is pathetic. The shower tap just trickles and no hot water, more like lukewarm. And pokey bathroom. Bed is very firm and same with the pillows. No coffee or tea making facilities. We had to borrow an electric jug from the reception. AC and ceiling fan works well. Thank goodness for that! Location is excellent, walking distance to just about everything. Here is the thing that amuses me. I asked them to clean our room. We were asked to sign a ‘ Room Cleaning Waiver’ form, that if something goes missing it’s our fault. Now, why would I sign this stupid form? I’ve been all over the world and this is the first time ever that I’ve been asked to sign s cleaning form. What this means is that the workers here cannot be trusted. So, would I recommend this place? Definitely not.

We definitely like the place for its premium place on the beachfront among trees. However, despite an early booking, we got a bad room (#4) for all of our 5 days stay. There was barely daylight coming in due to a huge wall in front of the window. The room was small and very noisy due to the staff quarters nearby and a communication door to room #5. Staff were nice and breakfast OK.

The room was quite small, and the color was a bit tacky. The bed looks clean but when we laid down on it it had bits of sand here and there. They have cable, but almost non-existent wifi. We could only use wifi at 3am when everyone was asleep. Their breakfast was good. After breakfast, though, they only serve burgers. We're not happy with the staff for the following reasons: 1. They informed us that someone from the restaurant (let's just call it that, but it's really just a hut) will go to us the night before to get our orders for breakfast the next day. From day 1 to 3, no one did. We told about it on the last day but no one still came. 2. We had to do early checkout (like 4:30am) for the van to Puerto Princesa. Though we informed them of this the night before, having our paid breakfast packed already, the morning of our departure, there was NO ONE to in the reception and no packed breakfast. Fortunately for them we paid the night before so we just went out. 3. Their security guard was new, and so whenever we asked help from him (ex. help us hail a tricycle), he just said he was new. *Though to be fair other than these, they were nice and easy to talk to. It's just that there's a lack of coordination among them. However, despite all these, they have GREAT location. There was a storm that cancelled 2 days of tours. Since Marygold is a beachfront inn, you can go straight to the beach from your room. You can also eat in other restaurants nearby along the beach. They have VERY GOOD location. They're quite fortunate in that aspect.
