Totally enjoyed our stay, from the beautiful room, to the lush surroundings to the peace and quiet. Nice restaurant and a clean pool surrounded by nice plants. Shuttle was efficient from El Nido to drop us off, then the hotel shuttle got us to the airport very quickly the next morning.

Stayed here 2 nights package with tours (River and City) and breakfast. Tours were on time and with a good tour guide full of information. Breakfast was ok, you can order it ahead of time and eat at a nice outdoor setting. The hotel is not in a tourist area, when you go out of the hotel, you will experience...

We stayed at Ilang-Ilang room. Thats in front of the resto and on ground floor. The thing we like about this hotel, is that its different from those hotels.the rooms are VILLA style. It gives you the homey feeling. Its so relaxing and quiet since its quite a walk from the bustling noise of the city. They have a pool....

This place was great for my family of 6, we had an excellent experience overall. The staff was very accommodating, breakfast is superb and had a few choices to please everyone from all continent. Definitely will recommend to family and friends. If I may suggest one thing though, to pave the way to this hotel from outside main street. The...

The hotel is in a quiet part of the town, just a short ride from the Robinson plaza and the main street. It is in a compound just off the road so generally peaceful and a nice escape from the noise outside. The staff at the hotel are very good, both attentive and friendly without being overbearing. The food in...

With a group of friends we stay there for 2 nights. The location is ok (on a "quiet" place, just twice a day we hear the muslim prayers). The breakfast is horrible.... :o The service was OK but not perfect. The room was ok, comfortable beds and clean.

Boy, was I wrong. Dolce Vita was more than I expected. Rooms are cozy, clean and beautiful (I stayed in a family room with two other persons, and now I miss that room. T_T). Bathrooms look a bit old, but clean. Pool is a bit small, but we still enjoyed the swim. And you won't notice the size anyway if...

We really enjoyed this hotel, it's off the beaten path enough to be nice and quiet but also still within access of town. You can grab a trike from the end of the road to wherever you like for about $2 on average. The hotel is great, rooms clean and easy to cool after a long day in the hot...

Very nice hotel. The staff even helped out with booking our tour. Helpful staff. My only concern would be the mosquitos. There were a lot of mosquitoes. Don't forget to being OFF spray or lotion. The food is reasonably priced and pretty good too at their restaurant.

There is 6 in our party, so we had 3 rooms overnight. We are going to the underground river tour in the morning, so breakfast will be at 6am which works out fine for us. Beautiful rooms. A very authentic Filipino room, other rooms for families with bunk beds. The pool area has a bar and Resturant. A full menu...
