Having planned a family vacation to El Nido on our last trip to the Philippines, we spent some time to find a good and affordable Hotel in El Nido.
Having originally selected a Beachfront Hotel, which carried a pretty hefty price tag for the Philippines, we changed our minds after having looked in detail at the Boat tours we intended to carry out.
If you go to El Nido, the only thing of interest to do is to get on the water to see the beautiful islands, as El Nido is best forgotten fast.
Having realised, that we would be spending our three days allocated fo El Nido permanently on boats between the Islands, we decided that we probably would not have much interest to see any more water in the evenings and we looked at a less pricey hotel as an alternative.
Our search did bring us to the El Nido Country Inn, which we found did cater for our needs more than adequately.
The Hotel is located on the main road into El Nido, overlooking the Bay. It is clean and the rooms have all the necessary equipment you need for a short stay. They are equipped with a fridge, air condition, good beds and a decently working en-suite shower and toilet.
The breakfast that is included in the room price, is typically for the Philippines, very Spartan, but adequate.
Whilst the hotel advertises Free Wi-Fi, you have to take into account that that is very relative, as the whole area is suffering from terribly slow internet and therefore the hotel can’t be blamed for the abysmal speed when connecting.
Talking about inadequate services; bear in mind that ATM’s are very few far and between in El Nido, so make sure your Hotel accepts Cars, like this one did, or stock up with plenty of cash before you come to El Nido.
All in all this Hotel was a good choice, especially considering the more than fair pricing charged. I would go back anytime.
