What a mess...
I will not recommend A Place to Remember, El Nido to anyone because of our experience. The room for 4 has no space for you to move around the room. The bed was clean and comfy, but the tv was not working and the staff made it work for us, the electrical sucket in the Wall was falling apart, the bathroom has no rug and slippery, the sink was dripping water, we have to shut it off every time we use, the shower is not working right, the towel holder was falling off, no soap or shampoo or body wash in the containers and there’s cockroaches... I think we paid a lot so I expect more...will never come back there! We paid for the room P27,190.53 for 3 nights/P4,979.51 x 3 nights =P14,938.58 but the taxes and fees cost me P12,182.40. We asked the owner about the taxes and fees and he said he doesn’t know, that taxes and fees doesn’t go to them, they said ask hotels.com about that, I’m so confused on who to asked. Can you help please? We also used hotels.com for our Coron trip and I did not pay much for taxes and fees and our hotel room was 3x better.

Liked: Staff & service, room comfort
Good place for a few nights
Really good breakfast, very helpful with scheduling tours, bed was very comfortable. The wifi did not work in the room, free water to refill, refrigerator was helpful in the room, had to ask for hangers for clothes, needed a better set up for drying wet clothes from the beach. The bathroom floor mat did not get replaced with clean mat. Could use some type of wall decoration to make the room feel hospitable. AC worked well.

A place to remember, but not for the right reasons
The room smelled of mold. The air conditioning, while functioning, was load to the point of disturbing sleep. There was no wifi on any of the floors. The view from the terrace is great though, and the breakfast was ok.
