Staff & service




Property conditions & facilities

3/5 Okay

Liked: Staff & service, room comfort
An OK hotel relying on location.
This is a hotel on Lio Beach (100m away) in El Nido. I got the impression that because it there it is assumed that this is enough and attention to details are not necessary. First off, 40 minutes late getting picked up at the airport (having used their 'private' airline Air-Swift). Secondly, shower overflowed into the bathroom due to a blocked drain which was easily fixed by removing the accumulated hair, not a pleasant thing to have to do. The staff, as always, were eager to help and we were offered a late check out due to our 17:20 flight which was appreciated (although the receptionist at checkout had not been informed and we were temporarily locked out of the room that had all of our possessions inside). I have travelled extensively in the Philippines and stayed at some much nicer places for the same price or less. If this hotel wants to continue to attract future clients then it needs to up the game a bit and not rely on its location. The room was comfortable enough and nearby facilities offer some good food and drink options.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities
The hotel has access on the beach and restaurants. Room is fine, I hope they put small desk with paper and pen. No hand soap and bath soap in the room, the staff did not refill the bottle, good thing we brought our own. Breakfast is excellent for Filipino guests because there’s variety but if your a foreigner they should add other choices like pastries, yogurt, ham. But overall I like the place and hotel

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
All of the staff were very friendly and professional. The only problem I encountered was that several of the local restaurants did not have a number of items available that were listed on the menu.

Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
This hotel is part of a group of hotels in an area called Lio beach and this particular hotel is literally a 2 minute walk to the beach. This property is 5 minutes from the airport and 20 minutes away from El Nido town proper. There are multiple dining and shopping options here but I have to agree on some of the reviews here that it typically cost 50% more than in town. There’s an ATM and a drugstore in the vicinity as well. The hotel offers shuttle service to town every hour starting at 8:30 AM till midnight. Or if you can’t wait, you can take the tricycle for 150 pesos or about $3.00/person. This property does not have a pool or a gym. There’s a gym next door that charges 250 pesos or about $5.00/day to use it - which one reviewer here said was a shame and I agree with him because hardly anyone uses it and why do you need to charge to use it? Offers breakfast in the morning which was simple and good. The room itself was small and basic. It has a safe and a balcony where you can hang your wet clothes. The property is showing it’s age - our room has several cracks on the wall. Some of the lights in the bathroom are not working and this is even after we called at the front desk to get it fix and it was never done. Overall, it’s a decent property. You don’t really stay in your room when you’re in El Nido. If you want to go a little higher end, try Seda Lio next door. It’s about a 10-minute walk on the beach from this hotel and connected by lighted pathway at night.
