For the duration of our El Nido trip, we stayed in CASA CECILIA.
The hostel is around 2-3 blocks from the beachfront, just beside the El Nido Bakery (buy their Pandesal. Its really good!). They have a mini-store at the ground floor where you can buy some Imported items (food, canned goods, perfumes, etc). They also sell bottled water at the concierge ranging from 30-45pesos per bottle.
Since we were 9pax in all, 4 of us stayed in a Quad Room (Ground Floor) while the other 5 stayed in a Family room (2nd Flr). They don't have an elevator so request for a ground floor room if you're with a Senior Citizen for better mobility.
Quad room - 2,500
Family Room - 3,500
|2 Double Beds|
Their staffs are very courteous and polite. Rooms and facilities are clean and well-maintained. El Nido town is quite small so the restos are all walking distance. They are just right across the Town's Catholic church while the INC church is just a 5 minute trike ride away.
Room comes with a set breakfast which is served at their rooftop. Free flowing Coffee, Tea and Iced Tea of your choice. Breakfast varies per day, they have a schedule of what food to serve daily (Silog Meals or Continental Breakfast).

Wifi is available in their rooms though mas mabilis sa Lobby area nila. Hot water is available at the lobby, they provide a thermos and cups can be requested. In our case, we brought Instant cup noodles so after returning from Island Hopping, we pair these with El Nido Bakery's Pandesal and ayos na ang merienda!
All in all, ok ang CASA CECILIA. With the price we paid and the service rendered, SULIT!
