Four Seasons Resort El Nido

Four Seasons Resort El Nido is a simple, small quiet hotel, offering only basic rooms. They have a well maintained pool and nice garden fronting the beach. Located in Corong Corong, its a 10 mins trike ride from the El Nido Town proper, so be prepared to pay a bit for tricycle. Some people may actually prefer the distance though because it makes for a quieter and more peaceful location. The staffs are generally polite and nice. Our check in was fast, the staff helped us bring our luggage to our rooms. 

CONS:

From the main road, you'll pass by a small muddy dirt road before reaching the resort. Some trikes refused to take us directly to the hotel because they will be stuck to the muddy road. Hence, we were forced to walk a few minutes towards the hotel. Not a big thing really, but because the road was not lighted at all, it was a bit of a chore. Aside from that, their rooms are quite dated. Furnites are old, shower head was falling off, CR door was damaged. The rooms also has thin walls, you could hear the conversations on the other room. Food was quite expensive, better take your dinner/lunch at the town proper.

Overall, its an average resort. Their rooms are quite expensive for the state they are in (in need of renovation) and resort is also quite far from the town proper. They have a swimming pool though which is a rarity in El Nido. If that is a deal breaker, then stay at this resort. However, if you could do w/o a pool, then better look for a resort in El Nido town proper. Lots of hotels there with better maintenance and amenities.
