There are many things to do in El Nido such as spending a lazy afternoon in Secret Beach, hiking up to Taraw Peak, diving the Dilumacad underwater tunnel or splashing around in the Small Lagoon."

If you want a place that 's in the middle of everything, then One El Nido 's the hotel for you. The hotel is just around 5-10 mins from Town Proper and port area and is very accessible to everywhere. 15 mins from Las Cabanas and an hour to Nacpan. The rooms are spacious and clean. I also loved the danggit they served during the buffet breakfast. As for the Hotel Personnel who assisted us, they are very accomodating, friendly and even gave us tips when roaming around. Nice restaurants, tour packages, getting around, name it! Will definitely look forward to coming back to this place. Highly recommended!

Highly recommend this hotel to anyone coming to El Nido! They have free breakfast, free water and tea, free self service washing machine and the staff are the kindest people ever! Extended my stay and stayed for a total of 4 nights and loved every bit of it! They had karaoke night and film night during my stay there. Again, highly highly recommend this!

The room is so creepy and it is so dusty, but the very big disappointment is their water, it is yellow and it smells bad, you will totally waste your money because after one day of staying, you will definitely find another hostel. I doubt if you can even last a day. Ciao!

We had a comfortable stay here at Novie ' s Tourist Inn. Perfect for budget travelers like me. Accommodating staffs. Occasional brownout which is normal in El Nido. Wifi was OK. Near the beach, spa, restaurants, motorcycle rental and just a few minutes away from the town. They are able to arrange van airport transfers and island hopping tours. Will definitely consider staying here again when I go back.

The hostel is OK for budget travellers like me, with free breakfast and coffee. The place is located @ the heart of El Nido proper. Just walking distance to the beach, bpi bank, restaurants, tours & travels, etc.

The hotel is located near the town beside the public market. The building is a little bit old but clean. The staff are very pleasant as well as the guards at the ground floor. This is not exactly the hotel I have imagined in my mind but somehow my overall experience in this hotel is positive.

The receptionist during our stay was very helpful but last days he was not. Because he asked a transfer from the hotels to Lio airport and the cost was 300 Piso. We refused because it is very expensive. Then we take another option and cost us only 100 piso. After that, the receptionist did not give us our breakfast we left the hotel at 7:15 and he didn’t not prepare it. The breakfast was included but we didn’t get it.

About

El Nido

This place is studded with jade-colored lagoons, breathtaking limestone cliffs, turquoise-green waters and stunning inlets that make for beautiful seascapes. With over 50 beaches to discover, El Nido offers pockets of paradise for those who enjoy island hopping and discovering the beauty of the underwater world.

Taraw Peak

It’s amazing how this place remains to be uncrowded and serene despite being one of the most famous tourist destinations in the Philippines (and honestly, everyone surely prefers it that way). Travelers usually go here for its pristine waters, beautiful coral reefs and the lagoons. Don’t be fooled, though, as El Nido is more than just your usual tropical paradise. It also offers other exciting activities like mountain biking, rock climbing and diving.

 

How to Go   

By plane

Direct flights from Manila are the easiest way to get to El Nido. The flight takes about one hour and it lands at Lio Airport which is located about four kilometers from midtown.

By boat/ferry

There’s a Coron-El Nido and El Nido-Coron route that are operated four to five times a week by several big outrigger boats. The trip takes seven to ten hours and costs around PHP1800.

By land transportation

Travelers can go to El Nido via land travel from Puerto Princesa, but first you have to fly to Puerto Princesa Airport via Cebu Pacific, PAL or AirAsia and other local carriers. Once in the capital city, you can take a five to six hours van ride from the airport, or travel with the locals and take the Puerto Princesa-El Nido bus route available in the city’s San Jose Bus terminal.

 

Getting Around

You can hire a motorbike for moving around town. It’s perfect for the steeply-inclined dirt trails. For local transportation, there are jeepneys and tricycles (PHP10) that provide town-to-town transport.

 

Tourist Attractions

Small Lagoon

The best way to explore El Nido is through joining an island hopping tour. Start from visiting the Small Lagoon and the Big Lagoon. The water here is so clear and full of marine life. For beach lovers, you’ll definitely love the powder fine sand in Seven Commandos Beach, which is named after the seven remaining Japanese commandos who lived in the island as stragglers after World War II.

Secret Beach

Another must-visit island is Pangalusian. Just a few meters from the shore are clusters of coral reefs making it a perfect spot for snorkeling. Other islands included in the tours are Kulasa Beach, Secret Beach, Star Beach, Tapiutan Beach, and more.

 

Top Things to Do

Nacpan-Calitang Twin Beach

One will never run out of things to do in El Nido. From sunset viewing in Corong-Corong Beach, walking on wooden path of the Mangrove Eco Park, to visiting the twin beaches of Nacpan and Calitang. There are also a long list of fun water activities like scuba diving, kayaking, windsurfing, snorkeling, and island hopping.

 

Where to Eat

One of the most popular food spots in El Nido is Squidos and it’s hard to miss because there’s always a queue outside even during off-season. Their best sellers include fresh seafood in big servings like the stuffed squid (hence, the name) and the mixed seafood platter.

No one can go wrong with breakfast meals! If you’re always scouting for a good breakfast place, make sure to go to Kape Pukka along Hama Street. Aside from the usual breakfast dishes, they also serve Mexican fajitas and Mexican wraps for around PHP100.

Another recommended restaurant is Artcafe. They’re known for their delectable food but it’s really the ambiance that makes tourists keep on coming back. Also, for the best pizza in town, check out Altrove.

 

Nightlife

For El Nido nightlife, the go-to spot for locals and tourists is Balay Tubay, a laid-back place which plays reggae and rock music. Here you can listen to impressive renditions of songs from Queen to ACDC. The colorful handicrafts adorning the walls also complement the vibe.

If you’re looking for a place to have drinks while watching the beautiful sunset of El Nido, head to La Plage Sunset Bar & Restaurant. Travelers love the simple and pleasant atmosphere as well as the great food–very chill place to hang out during the day and at night.

 

Where to Stay

El Nido Resort

El Nido is a haven for 5-star island resorts. If you want to kick it back celebrity style, you can stay in El Nido Resorts Lagen Island or El Nido Resorts Miniloc Island. If you’re going with your beau, it’s best to stay in El Nido Overlooking. It has a stunning panoramic view of the island and the villas are specifically designed for couples (priced at PHP5250).

For backpackers, you can stay at Spin Designer Hostel (rates start PHP830). It’s situated next to a mangrove forest so aside from being Instagram-worthy, it also offers a great view!
