Stay away!!!
As we entered the hotel to check in, there was no one at the reception. The lady who came after a few minutes seemed confused, although we booked the room a few months ahead. But this is not the main issue - we ordered standard room without seaview and got a room on the street!!! (on the reception and the entrance of the hotel). the room design is very old and not so clean. The noises from the street make you feel like you're in a construction site. Just stay away!!!

They treated us excellent
We had booked 2 rooms here, one bay-view and the 2nd a regular apt. room. We were traveling with my mother in law and daughter. The AC on the Bay view room was broken and being it was the weekend could not be fixed. The apt room was very large and nice so we all decided to stay together, The staff was awesome and refunded me the entire amount of the Bay Front room. What great service!!!! For the money and location it is perfect!!! The 2 futons are a little hard when folded into beds, but everything else was great!!! The staff went out of there way to make the beds and to assure our happiness. Great shower and AC!!!!

Perfect stay with the nicest staff on the whole island
We had such a good stay here, everything is super clean, well above the general standard of El Nido. The staff are also very friendly and helpful unlike most of the staff we came across in Palawan so staying here was a really nice surprise. The room was right on the water so you have a great view and the waves lap on the walls at night so nice! Wifi is slow just like everywhere else on the island but at least it works! Highly recommend this place and want to thank the front of house and housekeeper for being so lovely :)

Very expensive
The hotel is situated in a noisy and dirty street. My room was small and the bed sheets were gray, so I cannot tell if clean. Bathroom was clean but old. There was an electricity outage for 2 hours during the night, so the room became hot and there was an invasion of mosquitos. Breakfast was served at a nearby restaurant and was fine. The personnel was very nice and helpful. I found this hotel vey expensive for the standard and services they offer.

Relax Above the Water...Literally
Pura Vida Inn and Tours is a great place to lodge at an affordable price. The balcony room is literally above the water. If sleeping at night to the sound of the ocean relaxes you, then you will truly enjoy it here. The staff is beyond helpful. Faith, one of the employees at Pura Vida, ensured my lodging needs were met. She was very attentive, a dedicated and hard worker who provided valuable information of the local area. I truly felt at home with the help of the staff. I would recommend this place for singles and couples who want to be away from the busy city life. I give this place 2 thumbs up!
