For this being the first time for us to visit El Nido. I always rely on friends recommendations and reviews from other people. Most people will recommend that you do not need to look for a room a long the main beach front of El Nido since you will be touring the whole day. But this resort is an exception! We got a room here back in October for our Anniversary celebration. For this being our first time, they handled our land transfers from Puerto Princesa to El Nido with no problems! Compared to most beach front resorts they probably have the best view and location. Its also near most popular restaurants in the town. But do not expect a 5 star resort, but you get what you pay for and a little bit more. Rooms were great for the price! My only suggestion would be that they should have hot and cold showers. Because not everyone can handle a really really cold shower. But anyways their staff were very friendly and accommodating. Their breakfast was just okay but that morning view really sold it for me. I would highly recommend this place for fellow first timers.

El Nido have a special place in my heart, because its the first destination and out of town trip that i partake together with my partner last 2012 so i came back recently last june. This particular place/resort in El nido captures my wander feet with its stunning beachfront views of the Bacuit bay. Way back 2012 I searched a lot of resorts or a possible place to stay in El Nido and have booked with Marina Garden and it was awesome as ever. Last June i invited my friends to discover El Nido and booked the same hotel.

Marina Garden is a beach front hotel in the famous El Nido town. Their rooms have this chic country style ranging from 2500 to 2800 for 2 that comes with a breakfast. The rooms were so spacious and so clean. You will feel like you're in a chic hotel and not in a beach resort. When people hear about El Nido they always associate it with the luxurious and pricey private islands but you can actually experience the wonderful El Nido on a budget.

The resort is conveniently located to mostly everything you needed. If you want to dine out you can always dine at the restaurants near by or beside the resort. At the back of Marina Garden you can find the El Nido Police Station so rest assure, you will have the safest sleep in town ( El Nido has lesser to no crimes at all). If you need something from a store, you'll just go outside the road and you can see a lot of shops and stores. The friendly staff will help you in so many ways in booking your island hopping tours. For an uncontrollable situations like weather disturbances they can offer you with options on how to enjoy the town like the inland tour. I love going back to this place because of their hospitality and their smiles. My most favorite spot was on a hammock with an amazing and priceless view of the Bacuit bay, i always wanted to wake up with that view (shown on photo). Aside from that, you will have the best breakfast in town with the same view because their cafe is located at the beach front. Their breakfast choices is somehow limited but sumptuous enough. You can have a brewed coffee or fresh fruits on a hammock or on a beach with that amazing view. Downside is you cant have dinner there as they served only breakfast and lunch but hey, El Nido town has a vibrant night life so you can always check out some other restaurants for dinner. By the way, most of the time lunch will be served in an island as it is part of the island hopping tour unless you just want to stay in your hotel or simply read a book by the beach. Recenty, ive read that ATM is already available at the municipal halll so thats a plus points in El Nido town.

Island hopping tours ranges from 1,200 to 1,400 pesos that includes a tour guide and a food feast on an island freshly prepared by the tour guides. They have 4 different island hopping tours with different islands on each tour. They have Tours A, B, C, D and the most highlighted tour is the Tour A and C . I had both tours A (7 commando beach, entalula island, small lagoon, big lagoon, and shimizu island) and C (helicopter island, hidden beach, secret beach, talisay island and the matinloc shrine) as well. You will also pay one time for an eco tourism development fee of 200 pesos per head once you entered El Nido town. If there will be weather disturbances, the front desk would be glad to help you to arrange and book you for an inland tour going to the northern part of the El Nido town to experience the twin beaches and the falls.

You can contact Marina Garden or arrange your itineraries with them through email. They will respond the soonest as possible. I always want their services as they offer a worry free stay in el Nido. Check them out for yourself to experience their warm hospitality.

From Puerto Princesa, there are public airconditioned vans that will take you to El nido for 700 pesos per head. The ride will be around 5 to 6 hours so prepare for a long ride. You can also arrange your public or private transportation from Marina Garden too. #loolooexplorerpackgiveaway

Very chill, comfy and affordable hotel. It's right in front of the beach and is in the middle of the restaurants/bars in El Nido. :) The staff are friendly and accommodating and the breakfast they serve keeps you energized for the tours ahead!

Gates in front closes at 10pm so better sneak in early or go around the back if you plan on staying up late. ;)

Worth every peso! Even if we just got the fan room, we still had a very comfortable stay here. Service was on the dot, and the staff were friendly to recommend places to us that we ought to try. Our cottage only cost 1165 pesos and that is already good for 4 pax. Photo shows our view from the cottage (a bit dark due to the rains).

Cozy, beach front, warm ambiance, more like your personal beach house. I feel at home... slept through a major stormy night like a baby. Best customer service ever! On top of having a really cute COO (Child Of the Owner) who took care of us.

Very affordable, quiet place, nice rooms! We stayed for 4 days 3 nights for only 2.3k (quad-sharing), Imagine that? Breakfast is just enough, their brewed coffee is Goood!

It's beach front, near many establishment like groceries, ihaw-ihaw, sari-sari stores, cafe, bars, resto, tour guides, spa, transportation. Behind it is the police station and few blocks away from barangay hall. You dont need to worry about quick and small buys, you can find everything you need there.

El nido is a paradise, and a good place to relax and reconnect with nature. A quiet place, so be aware that you need to tone down starting 10pm esp. near the resort.
