My favorite place in El Nido. Cold beer, awesome burger. Whats more, the view is the best in town! You're only a few steps away from everything, foods, bars, stores, souvenir shops, and the tour departs just few steps away from the property. It is the super chill place when at the center of El Nido! Wohoo! All crews are awesome too! Cheers!

I found this place extremely comfortable and central. The staff are very welcoming and helpful with anything that I requesteed. Compared to other previous places we stayed in the same area this is (by far the best!!!) Modern rooms with all required facilities such as air conditioning...hot water...cable tv...free wifi...electronic safe (beautiful interior decoration). Suggest that you book the cottage style room as you have your own private balcony to eat your breakfast or just chill out on. Icy cold beers...char grilled beef burgers...great fruit shakes...freshly brewed coffee and choices of green teas. Outdoor beachsiide located chill out tables and chairs provided under the shaded palm trees area which we spent the majority of our time totally relaxed. It is 100% centrally

My friend and I arrived into El Nido on Wednesday 12th quite late at night and we took a tricycle to the hotel. Very quaint but cute. We had the “Dominique” room and it was great. Equipped with necessary bed, bathroom, AC, fridge and safe. Also a little table and chairs outside. WiFi is scarce but accessible at times. The breakfast is a little undesirable but the service fine. The staff were on the whole friendly but there could be improvement in terms of them engaging more... The typhoon itself restricted my friend and I for most of our holiday but on our last day we were able to take the tours and the hotel kindly kept our things safe until we left later that evening. Pros; Beachfront, clean, near to Rooftop bar (a must!) and central to everything in El Nido. Views are

All flights to El Nido were cancelled due to weather the week we were supposed to be staying at MaryGold. MaryGold refused to honor any refund of our 6 night pre-paid stay, even though there was no possible way to travel to the island. They had no interest in rescheduling our stay or working with us on a resolution. They simply gave us a "too bad" response, and kept our 27,000 pesos. Beware - the only accept reservations that are pre-paid in full. Refunds won't happen. Absolutely the worst business I have ever dealt with.

Response from MaryGold_ElNido, Owner at MaryGold Beachfront Inn
Responded 13 Aug 2018
Dear j4gware, We are saddened that your plans didn’t pan out and wish your reservation experience with us could have had a better end. Typically, despite our policy that cancellations received less then 48 hours prior to arrival are ineligible for a refund, we at least try to offer the room to walk-in guests and refund the nights that do still get booked. It is unfortunate that you and your wife were fixed on demanding a full refund when you called our booking office and that, shortly after, our communications ended with us receiving a payment dispute from our payment processing company because you were already trying to retract your full payment. We truly regret that your flight to El Nido was cancelled by your airline at the last minute due to weather conditions and that we were unable to help you more in adjusting your plans and finding alternative ways of transport. For the complete understanding of others that may be reading this, we would like to clarify a few items. 1. Our Cancellation Policy is stated in our website for all to see. It is also part of the Booking Confirmation that you received via email after booking your reservation. It was available for your viewing far before any changes were made to your plans. In your payment dispute and in this review, you stated that we refuse to honor our cancellation policy. On the contrary, we followed it just as stated and, when you asked for a refund, you were asking us NOT to honor it. 2. After your flight was cancelled and you decided to cancel your entire trip to El Nido, your wife called our booking office and demanded a complete refund—not a rebooking or modification which we would have gladly facilitated, given the circumstances. 3. Despite your saying the opposite, there were, in fact, several ways to reach the island of Palawan during the time of your intended stay. We confirmed with the local airline that there was actually one direct flight to El Nido that pushed through the day of your arrival and that they definitely had NOT cancelled the rest of the flights for the week. We also called the Puerto Princesa airport to confirm if all flights had been cancelled to Puerto Princesa for that day and the rest of the week. This was untrue was well. We also confirmed that shuttle vans from Puerto Princesa to El Nido were still departing as expected. 4. All our other guest arrivals pushed through that week except for yours. Even after you had called to cancel your reservation, we continued to hold the room for you for the entire week that you had reserved it for, just in case you were able to make it to El Nido on another flight (as there were many) on one of the days that followed. Considering that we held our end of what is a normal agreement between hotels and guests (we hold the room for you—in particular, our most popular room and for more than a month—and turn away other potential guests), it seems disproportionate to demand a full refund for a last-minute change in plans that we did not create. While we would have liked to work something out with you, we found ourselves instead having to attend to an inquest from our payment processing company because of a dispute that was made based on false claims. We do wish that we were able to come to an amicable resolution about your cancellation and wish you better weather wherever your travels bring you.
