Accommodation in El Nido for All Budget

There’s a variety of accommodation in El Nido that caters to all budget. Rooms can be as low as P400 or as high as more than a $100 per night. Depending on your budget, you can definitely find a place to stay in when you go to this beautiful paradise.

Below is an excel file that I made to summarize the accommodation from Sitio Pacalsada, Bgy, Corong Corong and El Nido town proper. Bear in mind that this is a list of their high season prices. Rates are definitely lower during low season (June-November), where some guesthouses slash the publish rate to a considerable amount.

Also, you can bargain for a bigger discount if you stay longer. Most guesthouses are generous enough to give you a discount if you stay for a week or so. Always try to ask for a discount.

If you stay for a month or so, you can opt to rent a cottage instead. The rate will definitely be cheaper since they are going to give you their monthly rate. Bear in mind though that this is only applicable during the low season.

If price is your main consideration, you can walk around and ask for a “boarding room”. Usually this is a spare room in a local’s houses that they rent out.

(Note: On the list: accommodation starting at Stunning Vistas up to Las Cabanas are all located in Bgy. Corong Corong and the rest are located in the El NIdo town proper.)

The cheapest price usually is a fan room for two. Some resorts though only offers aircondition rooms that’s why their starting price already cost a thousand pesos or two.

Some of them also offers breakfast inclusive prices such as the aircon room rate of Marina Garden or the villa rates of La Salangane. Make sure to check with them if the price that you’re paying already includes your breakfast.

This list does not include all accommodations, there are a few that I wasnt able to list such as the guesthouses in Caalan and some more in the El Nido town. Please be aware that prices mentioned here are accurate at the time of writing but may change without prior notice based on each owner’s discretion. Contact them ahead of time to know their updated prices.

Here are some of the guesthouses/hotels:

      hi ms imelda, unfortunately i dont have a list for puerto princesa and the prices above for the accommodations in el nido might not be updated anymore since it has been a couple of years already since I was last there. I do suggest to contact them directly to get the updated price for the guesthouses and hotels. Safe Travels:-)

  16. We bookedd rosannas cottages this aug. For 1800 per nyt,an aircon rum for 2,w/o breakfst thnks for the info…

  17. We’re planning to go to El Nido, and so far, we only need a rough estimate how much it’s gonna cost to do island hopping and other activities. 🙂

    • hi kisty, last time i went there was almost two years ago and we paid P750 for Tour A. I guess the price has increased by this time.

  18. Hi flip, which travel agency did you booked for the island hopping? Thanks, will go there next year. Hope to book a cheap tour 🙂

    • I did not booked the tour with the travel agency, we met the boatman when we were staying there and arranged a tour with him. There are many tour agencies once you get in El NIdo 🙂 Enjoy your stay!

  19. Great resources! Thanks for sharing! I would also add Plankton Diver’s Inn – we were in El Nido in 2013 and found this great place that had just opened in Corong Corong, a little house right on the beach with view on the water – superb for 800PHP for double room with private bath and WiFi owned by a lovely lady named Maria! I talk about it here with photos:
