Amakan Bed Bunk Breakfast
Ranked #8 of 118 Specialty Lodging in El Nido
Reviewed 4 weeks ago via mobile

If you want to experience a real Filipino home experience, this is the place for you!

It’s strategically located at El Nido town near to restaurants, coffee shops, bars, convenience stores, services, etc. Upon entering I was greeted with the lush garden and an imposing old tree. It felt like I was not in the middle of the town. The architecture is pretty straightforward with Filipino architectural elements that gives warmth to the structure. The staff was cordial and friendly. They make you feel like you’re at your own home. The room is clean and complete. The bed and pillows were really comfortable especially after a long day at the beach.

it is a new lodging, the staff was nice, but the payment has to be improved since we had some misunderstanding while we were making reservation half- year ago, it could be better eventually... visiting the island while in the rain season, it made me back again next time...

We stayed for a total of 4 nights at Amakan. The hotel rooms are clean first of all, the bedding is fresh and the grounds are well maintained. You can rent motorcycles and organise tours here. There is WiFi but only in the communal areas not in the bedrooms, there is an additional communal area on the roof but there is no WiFi there. Breakfast was a buffet garlic rice, a soup dish, cereals and toast, omelette (type changing daily) and a meat dish (also changing daily) juices etc, this was sometimes delicious others not so much.

The staff on the other hand were a mixed bag, some extremely helpful and smiley but did not have any idea of the local amenities, e.g cash machines (which are an issue in El Nido) they directed me to the one in the municipal building however when I got there they said it had been not working for the last 6 months???! They do not accept card and were very moody when asking for water during the night.. like we disturbed their sleep...wtf..the security was always friendly.

There are always a group of tricycle riders outside the gates ready to pounce on those who may be interested in using their services.

The location is good too, 10 Minute walk to the beach if that!

Me and my friends chose this hotel since it is very accessible (5mins or less walk to the beach). I saw here on trip ad that rooms look new and clean although not that big but cleaniness matter thus also offers a good price. Staffs at the front desk counter were nice and accomodating but we encountered some issues upon entering the room. Since working in a hotel you know what to look at first... the sheets. Checked if they were clean but then there were smudges on them, pillow cases and the bed sheet itself as well as some flies on the walls. Before we went out we asked to have our sheets changed because we werent comfortable with it. We went out to the beach and ate lunch. We went back to our room at past 4pm only to see that the changing of sheets were not yet done and so we had to tell them again. We finally got to our room and as we entered there were literally lots of flies inside the room as the doors were left open upon make up room. We had to call asistamce frm Hk to have them removed it was a bit stressful. Thankfully we did not encounter any issues after that day. Breakfast was okay, I guess some people there owns the place and they were nice. Wifi is only available downstairs, as well as not forget bringing some spray since mosquitos are abundant in el nido.
