an aged property in a hard to access part of Caalan beach. For some reason normal transportation from el nido do not go to this area so you have to arrange pick up from the property. this easier said than done and took us lots of effort to communicate with them. You should also be aware that Caalan beach is not a place to swim during low or high tide- do not let others tell you otherwise. We were here for 3 nights and did not see anyone swiming in it. Our net take is that the Caalan beach area is the least desirable place to stay in el nido and prices asked for stays here are high and not worth it. Golden monkey not worth the price you pay.

Great View: shame about the location/accessibility

Plus: stunning views; nice cottages; A/C; Drawbacks: Must walk a mile (or tricycle) on wild dog path (1 bit my partner)

5/5 Excellent

Great staff and a beautiful property set away from the bustle of downtown... but still close enough to walk!

4/5 Good

The room was really nice and clean with a balcony that had great views out to the sea. Some other rooms didn't have any views though. Our toilet didn't flush. The staff were helpful. Breakfast is included and is ok thought a bit simple. The location is nice and peaceful away from the main town of El Nido although could be a bit of a trek every time you want to go out for food or do an activity. There is a tricycle service for 50php each way to the end of the road. The hotel seems to be missing a trick by not having a bar or restaurant. They have a breakfast area with tables and chairs overlooking the sea but they don't serve any drinks or anything except at breakfast.

Would not go there again.

The only hotel I’ve stayed at in the Philippines who hasn’t been able to help us with transportation (within Palawan). Air condition stopped working. Couldn’t pay with card though it said they could in description in front desk. No beach nearby and it’s not easy to get there, bumpy road and you’d have to walk very far or pay the hotel to give you ride with tricycle (other tricycles wouldn’t go there). Hotel had no restaurant and there’s only one restaurant nearby where it was really expensive. Breakfast staff was very helpful and friendly. The room had a stunning view over the ocean, but that’s it.
